Have you ever had the experience of visiting a commercial website and then finding that afterwards almost every site you visit there’s an ad for that company’s products?

There’s a name for it. Remarketing.

The idea is that you had some sort of interest in the company’s product and they don’t want you to forget about them. Here’s a formal explanation from Google.

I had an interesting experience with this remarketing tactic. I visited a site, let’s call it Widget’s Retro Furniture. After I left the site, everywhere I went on the Internet, there were various ads for Widget’s Retro Furniture.

I didn’t think too much of it other than they were very aggressive with their marketing.

But then something really weird happened.

I had gone to the coast for a mini-vacation. On the way back, I’m minding my own business on the freeway when a truck passes me on the left and then pulls in right in front of me. What was on the back of the truck? Widget’s Retro Furniture!

How’d they do that?
