Google stores a lot of information and knows incredibly much about you. They know what you search for, which websites you have visited and location data. Adverts you see online are no coincidences, they are targeted to you based on what Google, Facebook and other Social Media know about your interests. In this article we will give you links to your Google profile!

Have you ever wondered why adverts on websites and Social Media are almost always  related to what you have searched for or websites you have visited? The reason is that Google, Facebook and other Social Media Networks are collecting all your digital trails and offer this information to advertisers to target their adverts.

This targeting is the reason for why Digital Marketing can be 10 times more effective than traditional Marketing efforts. Digital Marketers are able to only spend money on reaching people that is interested in their products or services.
