Re: the Google AdSense Targeting.

I checked that same page and only got AdSense ads for lyrics and music related products. Maybe Google's tracking your search history and showing you personalized ads. Did you have Google Search History switched on at the time?

Just a little paranoid speculation.

Personalized search was on.

I tried it with personalized search off and still noticed 2 different SEO type ads.

Still, as reported by the AP today, Google sees all.
