As I was reading some things on celiac.com an ad caught my eye. It was for a bakery called Moio's Italian Pastry in Monroeville, Pa.. I have seen this place but never knew they had gluten-free?? My question is do they have gluten-free goodies & if not why is an ad on celiac.com for this place? Sorry, I know these ads keep the site going but I'm concerned that if this place doesn't do gluten-free it may confuse new people...
Maybe this is a question for Scott.....

thanks

If its one of those little "google ads" they could be for anything. Seems like if we talk about pizza, it will put a Papa Johns add. The main ones that say celiac.com sponser should be for Celiac friendly items. I don't understand why the google is on there but someone who knows more about internet stuff might know.

The ads tagged "celiac.com sponsor" are vetted by Scott and must promote products which support the gluten-free diet.

Ads by Google are a source of revenue to keep the board running--and free to all members. The are based on personal activity online. I recently bought a replacement portable computer online. All of a sudden, I was getting ads by Google for the very computer I bought at the very same place I bought it. Hmmm. Those ads could be for anything--not necessarily related to the purpose of the board.

Thats for sure...I was looking at the GIBSON guitar site at their T-shirts and now everywhere I go on computer that shirt follows me...even Celiac forum !!! LOL Tell me what Gibson guitars have to do with Celiacs...LOL!!!
These advertizers have really gotten underhanded! we have multible users in our house...what if I don't want ads for everyones christmas presents poping up !!! It's really gotten out of hand! :blink: :P
Funny...even as I was clicking back to the main forum after typing this...I looked to the side bar and saw an add for the VAN HALEN STORE...(I did alot of T-shirt shopping the other day...but I didn't BUY..I just looked!!!) now there all following me!!! :blink:

If anyone see's an inappropriate ad on here just IM me the link...it will be a large link...you get this by right clicking on the ad and selecting copy link location, or just click the link and give me the URL it lands on. I can block ads, but must do this using the URL.

Take care,
Scott
