/ youtube auto-suggestions
I was looking at a fridge review about 2 months ago and I still get inundated with banner adverts for fridges. Targeted marketing is often so widely off target that is it really worth the effort?
Try clearing your cookies, that should reset you. Firefox: Tools>Clear Recent History || IE Tools>Delete Browsing History> Cookies
If you only delete cookies, your browsing history etc should remain for URL auto-completion.
If you don't like the ads, and use Firefox, I recommend the following: 1. AdBlock Plus http://adblockplus.org/en/ (this even takes out ads on 4OD vids) 2. Google's ad opt-out (they are the world's largest advertiser after all) www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin/ and 3. if you want to feel paranoid, check out Collusion www.mozilla.org/en-US/collusion/
Owned by Google and Google use filter bubbles.
You could do a youtube search from another search engine: eg. duckduckgo's main focus is on privacy and doesn't filter bubble searches.
eg. type: your search query site:youtube.com
Are you sure? Cleared my cookies this morning before posting and haven't had any of my old history show on the right.
Checking the cookie, firefox: tools>options>privacy>show cookies... and selecting the YT cookie, it has a section "recently_watched_video_id_list", which is your YT history. From here you can just clear the YT cookie if you want.
If I were you I'd patent time-based video suggestion, you could make a mint!!
I'd suggest you change your web browser, and / or change it's settings.
It's easy to avoid targetted advertising, but probably not politically correct of me to post on here to tell you how to do it...
To the company that sells the advertising, yes, probably. As long as they can choose to avoid paying corporation tax, anyway...
They are NOT *avoiding* the corporation tax (the most ineffective, counter-productive tax going). Neither are they evading it. A company has to pay tax in only one jurisdiction within each territory, here that's the EU (and there are many member states).
The question isn't "Why aren't they paying the UK the tax?", the question is "Why isn't the tax regime in the UK the most attractive in the EU, to bag all the tax?"
are you signing into youtube/google?
would be my guess as to why it is being retained after clearing memory.
