I am perplexed by the way Google personalises [?] the adverts on ARRSE. I get a Chinese one - here's the first line: ℼ潤瑣灹⁥瑨汭㰾瑨汭㰾敨摡㰾瑳汹㹥筡潣潬㩲㈣㐷㡣紴潢祤琬扡敬搬癩甬ⱬ楬浻牡

There's a lot more but I can't load it all as it crashes the ARRSE page. If I load it into Google translate most of it doesn't translate but odd phrases like 'twist angry dog', 'contravene breast feeding', 'Gordon Hart', 'beaten up bucket' and 'fine centering lustre of gems' come up interspersed in a flow of Romanised by untranslated Chinese. The ☢ symbol doesn't translate at all.

Just thought I'd mention it!

It's usually defined and generated by you're internet history, so the relevence of the adverts sum up your past searches or history, but i can't seem to understand how this is possible as mine show up Chinese dating and Tigers dying in Africa, when all i look at is mainly Arrse, eBay military antiques and recipies to perfect' the perfect Steak and Ale Pie!

I've got the ads for helping that freaky girl with half a head and a free MIT or Harvard online learning course.

I don't want a free MIT. I've met him, and his wife would knack me.

It's gibberish, a random stream of characters and pseudo-characters. I'd guess electronically-generated.
If the messages are just gibberish, it's quite possible that it's an encoding problem. What gets sent through the Internet isn't a series of letters. It's a series of zeros and ones. Whether those zeros and ones are ASCII characters for English text, Chinese characters for Chinese text, or a porn image is something the server has to tell your web browser. Sometimes shoddy or flaky software on the server sending ambiguous information means your web browser has to take a guess at what it is.

Ads don't come from Arrse's servers, they come from an advertising company's servers. A bit of Javascript that Arrse serves up with the web page goes out and fetches an ad. The ad server decides what ad to show you (based on things like tracking cookies - which is what all those cookies are for). There are usually huge banks of ad servers which share the load, and you will get routed to one of them. Each ad on the same page could come from a different server. If one of those ad servers has gone wonky without the ad company noticing, you can get random gibberish.

This thing went away for a bit but is now back. However after a while it morphs into a real advert.

I hit prt sc to give you a screen print, but although I can then copy the screen shot into a file on my desktop ctrl+V doesn't do it on quick reply in ARRSE (although it works for other things I want to copy in).

Just anotherr mystery In ARRSEworld I suppose.

Because search algorithms are not intelligent entities.
