Are you starting to notice Craftsy ads when you visit other sites? Read on to learn more about why that is.
Craftsy, along with thousands of other companies, uses a service called Google ads. Our goal is to help folks all over the world master the crafts they're interested in which is why we use services like Google ads. This helps us reach out to potential crafters.
How does Google Ads Work?
Google ads "react" to the user, meaning if you visit Craftsy then visit another site that utilizes this service, you may see an advertisement for Craftsy on their site. We do not control what sites use Google ads, and seeing a Craftsy ad on another site that uses Google does not indicate an endorsement or partnership between that site and Craftsy. The ads you see are based on your browsing/internet history. You and your neighbor can go to the same website at the same time and see different ads, based on each of your own individual browsing histories.
How can I get rid of these ads?
If you're tired of seeing unwanted ads in other places, a great way to remedy that is by clearing your cache and cookies (stored memory). Please note that your browsers will continue to store your browsing history, so you may want to regularly clear your cache and cookies, which also helps to keep your browser running quickly and smoothly!
