Those advertising links aren't appearing for me at all. I don't know the technicalities of how they work but I do know that they are often generated by Adware on your computer, not the website you are looking at.

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

I'm not seeing the advertising links now either.  I don't think it is spyware or adware as BCO saw them too.  Over on RV.net there were tons of complaints when the feature was turned on.  I only see these keyword links on some of the sites I visit and not all of them.

Glad to see you haven't gone up in smoke.  As to the advertising Don must be browsing with his hand on his mouse.  If you're mousing around the links are obvious. 

It would be interesting to know if the links are geographic in nature.  In the article, drag you're mouse over any of the words "bus driver, semi-truck, of pain" and if like us in the USA you should see links to advertisements appear in a small box. 

I mainly use Chrome, Mozilla and Safari browsers.

Yes, summer travels over and I'm back to boring normal life (and working on my bus again for the first time in months).

The ad links certainly might use geographical targeting - and that can be to far smaller areas than whole countries, which might explain why I'm apparently not the only one who can't see them.

A few years ago up here in the NW a bus driver (MC-9) hit a flat bed trailer that had fallen off another flatbed and was in the middle of the freeway at night.  When the bus hit it, the driver's seat, with him still in it, detached and he was ejected out the windshield, flying over a hundred feet.  He survived with serious injurys.  But the moral of the story is (1) don't over drive your headlights (2) make sure your seat and the co-pilot seat and belt anchors are afixed to structural steel, not just the floorboards.
