Context-sensitive links in Gmail

dilbert-sponsored-links.pngAs any Google Mail (aka Gmail) user knows, there are context-sensitive sponsored links on the right side of most pages in gmail.com. So, if your friend sends you a message talking about bagels, you’ll likely see ads for bagel shops.

This morning, my daily Dilbert comic strip message had some very odd ads. Normally, you would expect Dilbert-related ads such as comic strips, office supplies and what not. You probably would not expect ads for brass strippers’ poles. (Don’t bother trying to click any of the links in the image… they don’t work.)
