If you see ads for products that were developed in your hometown, beware. Software is often able to detect your personal settings and plug in your local information to encourage you to click here. These ads are often designed to look like news articles. Unless you have heard of this wonderful new break through on your local news, it is probably just an aggressive marketing message designed to lure you in with a local angle.
Not much in life is free. If an advertiser is trying to give you something for free, you can be they will be depending on you to spend much more to get it. Most giveaways on the Internet require you to consent to receiving calls from telemarketers and multiple emails from many advertisers, at the minimum. Some also require you to make a certain number of purchases from their company or their partner companies in order to receive what they claim is free.
The more an add stresses that an offer is for a limited time only, the more you can be sure it is not that great a deal. These ads are designed to make you act quickly without thinking it through. Good deals are abundant on the Internet if you are looking for them, but you will not usually find them in the ads.
