Shift in V Owner Demographics?

Judging by the Google ads that have been showing up lately, I wonder if we're attracting a somewhat different audience of late here at kawasakiversys.com.

Any demographers out there care to postulate on what is causing this shift?

Well, we do have a few female members. And a couple of them are active posters, so it makes sense to me...

Not positive but I think the Google ads are based on sites you visit not the community in general. I seem to be getting ads from places I have visited recently.

I'm curious how female posters on a motorcycle site would give rise to Ann Taylor ads. It's not like the male posters give rise to Armani ads.

Speaking as someone who's worked in and out of the advertising field for 25 years, it's an odd mix of audience and message and I wonder how it happened.

That's easy! Versys riders attract more women (unless your a women).

That's cookies and spyware.
Download and run Spybot SD, Adaware, Malwarebytes, and run them.
