Dont worry, all guys clear their history.


On chrome go to the top right where those 3 bars are and go to history, and then select clear history from begining of time

Any website you log into places tracking cookies into your browser other sites can read those cookies and determine info about it. Right now all the ads I see on youtube are about Key West( we went in April) You can go and remove those cookies, but as soon as you go back to the site it will be right back on there.

Yeah, ads from sites I visited ONCE multiple MONTHS ago still come up on different pages I visit. And what also appears pretty clear to me is that RELATED ads also come up in the browser; they aren't necessarily from the same places/sites, but I can tell they're related.

Go to Amazon and eBay and look up a bunch of random stuff. Fine china, garden rakes, roller skates, industrial surge protectors, etc, etc. Copy and paste full product names that come up into the search.

Confound and confuse the tracking systems.

Modern marketing is much more efficient than the old 'blast at everyone' scheme.

If you are using chrome, add the extension Ghostery. It shows what it is blocking and allows you to adjust what you want to block or not.
