Google Demographics

Check your Google demographics:

Anyone got anything interesting to reveal? Not sure quite why but Google has no demographics for me. AdBlock Plus again, anyone?

Nice. That's cool. Even though I know the internet and technology and everything is powerful I always get amazed by stuff like this. I mean it's spot on with everything. But then it would be.

Uh-oh, I don't really want to reveal mine. I've clearly been visiting too many Big Brother forums lately :oops:

Mine said no age. Apart from that, it was all correct (mostly gaming) except for one major thing. 'Clothing - Apparel' was there. Don't have any idea why. :?

Could probably do with a sub thread for people to post theirs. Really interesting and everything. (I actually do think it is).

Spot-on again, even with the age. Clever stuff.

Edity: Actually not totally spot-on, I use internet banking pretty much every day and that's not represented, yet I only log in to my gas/electricity accounts once every three months to give them meter readings, so not sure what's going on with that.

Gulp.

Most are OK, it's just that age. The Games section is awful and the Home section is worse. As is the second locality. And most of the arts (beside music).

They've probably worked out that you read the Telegraph, ergo you're over 65.

Surprised football doesn't come up, as I look for football-related stuff probably more than I do games... not sure that would help them guess my gender right though.

They come from companies (e.g. banks, sharks, villains) who want you to use them to buy crap you don't need in order to keep up with people you don't particularly like so they can charge use extortionate amounts of interest until they own your soul. Stay well away. If you need the same information about babbies ask your parents.

Hmm. I've looked much more at freestyle swimming than muscle exercises. The holiday stuff is for my mother/sister.

Not to difficult to infer age from absence of 'Arts & Entertainment' categories, which I only ever look up to elucidate clue references to the current scene, which is of no interest to me.
