I just saw an ad for those little snack cakes WW sells. . .

because Patrik has to pay for you to have free access and support. Sorry for the inconvenience

I know, me too. Australia is very influenced by America.

Kinda makes me sad to find out that Australia has been invaded by Dominos & Subway.

Yeah, if only Weight Watchers knew, they would never pick this as a receptive site for their advertising.

There's **definitely** ads on the site. You're probably running AdBlock like I am and don't see them, heh. Whenever I use my phone to browser, I see them again. They are always for the most un-paleo crap, too.

Probably because youre cookies show youve been looking for ways to lose weight via search engines and you are probably female since that is weight watchers target market.

Companies are very good at advertising and through the internet have access to more information about you than you'd like!

Lol I know! I'm in Australia and most of the ads are either advertising some wheat based cereal or Dominos pizza and subway! It's so ironic.

Keywords on a page determine which ads are presented. Anyone know if there's an Adblock iPhone app?

There are ads on this site?

Get adblocker - make the internet 100000000 times better for yourself.

(As for your real question, my guess is that the site has simply agreed to an advertising package to boost revenue, and that the site doesn't get to pick and choose which ads get shown)

I don't see any ads at all on this site. Maybe you have some adware/malware running on your computer that is popping it up.
