One technique provided by Advertising Networks is called Behavioural Targeting. Advertisements can be tailored to broadcast advertising of a more relevant nature by capturing user's online behaviour. These behaviours can then be used to inform a network to place an advertisement on a website that operates as part of the advertising network.

This site uses targeting cookies that support behavioural advertising.
