It happened multiple times.

I was browsing the main page of SO and I clicked on a question, and while the request was being sent, my eyes glanced over the SE network question-type ad on the right. I had time to read the question and it was relevant to my interest (although unrelated to programming), but the page concerning the question I requested loaded.

I quickly pressed back to re-read the question and be able to follow the link, but once the page reloaded, it was displaying another question that was no longer relevant.

I can't believe I'm asking this concerning advertising, but I'd like to be able to press back and still have the same ad. Maybe use a 10 to 15 seconds cache on ads.

Seem like this was implemented. I can now go back and I still see the same ad.

  • many (but not all) of the things you would find advertised would be on the network-wide hot list at stackexchange.com though you might have to scroll down a bit. Sep 2, 2011 at 7:07
