Re: [Y-Mail] Mail search
Targeted ads. or micro-targeting also happens on Google Mail. BUT the irritating thing is that the algorithms don't know when to stop. Last month I wanted a Panasonic Combi VCR (tape and dvd & hard-drive). I searched for this. Found a good deal at John Lewis and bought the unit. Unfortunately both Yahoo and Google still think I need to know about this and I am still pestered with ads that I am not now remotely interested in. I suspect that I will get yet more ads. due to this post. That's where the concept of targeted ads fails - they irritate the user and the result is to ignore them and the products / services involved. Chris B.

If you are using the free email option. All pages have different advertisements. That is how free email is paid for. It does not have to pertain to your search as long as Yahoo excepts the advertisers.
If this is an account you are going to stay with you can pay $19.95 a year to get rid of those ads. I have.
