Just an observation:

I am now seeing Amsoil advertising on Weather Underground, and two Amateur Radio (Ham Radio) sites.

They are all linking to the Amsoil Corporate Website.

Amsoil is "pouring on the coals."

Is it through AdChoices (meaning they're looking at your cookies), or is it a stand-alone ad?

It appears to be coming from "ADDsbyGoogle."

It's because of your web browsing. Amsoil us marketing to YOU (or, perhaps more accurately, people like you. Which includes you). AdsByGoogle tracks your browsing history when you hit a page that uses google's tracking stuffz, then you get specific ads tailored to your viewing. You view sites having to do with motor oil, thus you get motor oil ads. Try visiting sites for LCD TVs for a few days, magically your ads will change.

They had some ads earlier in the year in Car and Driver. They have definitely increased their advertising over the last few years.

If that's the case, why should the adds appear in the two most public Ham Radio Sites and not others?

On these two sites in question, advertisers pay to advertise.

They still pay to be on the site, it's just that since site owner(s) have given a portion of their inventory to Google, you will see advertisers who use Google come through for that specific ad.

Well, zpinch, you do know that Amsoil advertises at every major sporting event, and they have all those big logos on F1 cars. Oh, wait. wink

Volume brings economy.
I just received an order from them and got stellar service and products.
That's worth paying for.

Yeah because someone read somewhere on the interwebs that they cut back on PAO use, and of course everyone knows that less PAO=less quality.
