Exclamation Conspiracy??

Not sure where to post this, if this is incorrect, I apologize!

I've obviously noticed the ad on this forum for the High End Beauty retouching tutorial DVD. I guess I always figured the creator had some special contract with RetouchPro to have it one here. However, whilst browsing some tutorials found on other sites, I've noticed the exact same ads. I now realize that they're coming through Google Adsense. I've always thought that Adsense generally has a large amount of random ads, but this one has been popping up like crazy! For example, here:

http://adspeer.googlepages.com/smoothskintutorial

(If they don't show up, just refresh a couple of times, they will come!)

Does this guy have some sort of monopoly on Adsense retouching ads? It seems a little strange that they are soooo prevalent. Any ideas on why?

Maybe that is why he is charging the $200 for a $69 video...to pay for the advertising!

Haha that would explain it!

Is it a simple matter of a lot of advertising dollars? It seems like those ads dominate anything retouching oriented.

Re: Conspiracy??

Adsense ads are related to the text and subject matter that Google finds on web pages.

Ads for plumbers and plumbing supplies are put on pages that have text etc. on pages related to plumbing.

Probably because he paid for them. Nothing sneaky or strange about it.

What about the guy on TV who screams about KABOOM. Conspiracy?

I've noticed this too, it is everywhere. I still haven't clicked but it is tempting, although I think I already checked a place that rhymes with Birate Day to see if others had interest in those videos.
