Awww, I didn't know Google was so good at flattery!
This shows the ad-demographic (age and gender) as well as ad-categories that are stored in your Google cookie. Kindda fun to see.
According to google, I must still be young at heart!

And they know that I'm not a gurl.
Google thinks that I am an 18-24 year old female. Maybe I need to go to different sites.
They think I'm 45-54. I'm about to turn 64, so that is not too far off. They are pretty good on everything else.
This is all I get:
And most of the categories are what I researched to write for my clients SEO and apparel for instance

Hmm, google thinks I'm a 25-34 year old male.
I'm a 22 year old female. I guess all those math, biology, gaming, and computer science websites must be giving off the impression that I'm male.
That's what I get for being a nerd.
Google thinks I am a female age 18-24. No idea why. I have my age on my Google+ profile, I think. . .
It was probably those lingerie sites...

I didn't think to copy those before.
You mean checking out the menu on the Hooter's web site doesn't count?
They have me as an 18-24 female. (Maybe I'll leave it. They're about the only ones on Earth who have me figured for that age. ) I'm 59.
You are another young-at-heart person.
Well, the other day a Walmart checker said "Thank you, young man" to me. When I got to Hannaford's, I tried to convince the checker there to say "Here's your receipt, geezer" - just to rebalance the universe - but she would not.
No info on me, only what subjects I search...... I guess as I am searching from the Philippines I am not important to their data!!
Google is making me older than I really am! They say 35-44 - really, only a year off on the lower end, but I'd rather be in the 18-34 demographic.
mine was right on.....not sure if i like that since my searches are being tracked
It thinks I'm a 35-44 year old female (it underestimated my age by a decade, but I'm more than happy with that ).
So can someone please tell me why the email spam I get is targeted almost entirely at males? (It mainly consists of advertising for gadgets and cars, and young women saying they want a relationship with me.)
I think the people who compile the email lists for spam probably don't check them very closely. Google thinks I am a female 18-24, despite the information and picture on my profile; but, I am still get those emails selling "wives" from various countries. Also hair loss remedies, and other male afflictions.
leroy, Google thinks I am a MALE 18-24.. I know for sure I am NOT a male and certainly not 18-24... well, once upon a time I was... 18-24, not male of course. Maybe too much Facebook? Is going to Facebook once a week too much? Well, at least I don't get emails selling wives from various countries, nor hair loss remedies and other male afflictions.
I didn't know you could find this stuff out! Surprisingly accurate for me.
I have my browser set so that I'm not tracked. It's much nicer than having web sites snoop on you.
I was also classed as 18-24, which puts it at up to 40 years inaccurate.
I deleted all the "interests" stored for me. Only one of them was even close.
However, when I tried to use the opting out feature, I was invited to download yet another cookie, which would enable further spying!

HubPages is under attack. HubPages content did not get hit by a Google slap and views did not tank due to Google algorithm changes; it is the victim of negative SEO.To see the nature of the attack:*Go to a Google search engine on a computer with no cookies saved on it.*Enter a random username and...

Just checked it on Alexa.com, and realized which (alleged) effect the Panda updates of Google has on traffic. Although I'm still happy with the traffic my Hubs have, are the foundations increasingly eroding. Are there any ideas to change this trend? http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/hubpages.com

It's less than 50% of the usual and it continues to decline every week. I just checked my status and it's worse than the last week. There are no signs of improvements in traffic. What about you guys?

Does anyone have good suggestions for forums, widgets, websites or software for SEO and creating 'good' backlinks and/or other suggestions? This is for my Hubs as well as a Wordpress.org blog. I want to gain traffic and eventually make more money.
