Targeted Marketing

I use Gmail for my emails and recently I have written a few emails that mention Hamish and sleep.

Today, I notice that three out of the four ads down the side of the page are about getting babies to sleep. Here they are:

Sleep is ImportantLearn how to achieve quality sleep! Essential things you must
Teach Your Baby To SleepStep-by-step program teaches any baby to sleep through the night!
TOP Swaddle Blanket 2008Promotes Sleep & Motor Development Stretchy Cocoon, Easy IN/OUT

That just seems like too much of a coincidence to me! I've noticed it before - whatever I'm writing about, ads seem to match it.

Creepy - I don't really like it.
