nychotelsadtargetingI literally just booked a flight on Expedia for NYC about an hour ago.

I proceeded to publish a blog post on Geek Estate, and then look at the home page. To the right is one of the ads I saw at the top of the page.

Yes, ad targeting is alive and well in 2014. Google certainly knew I had just bought a flight on Expedia and thought to suggest some hotels. Smart on them. Fortunately for me, I’m staying with a friend in the Upper Eastside, so don’t need an expensive hotel.
