Have you ever wondered how you are viewed and perceived by society?
I have the definitive answer – according to Google Ads Demographics, I am male and younger check it out!
Apparently there is no room or demographic for geeky female! and as I don’t search fashion, pink, hair styles etc.. I am definitely a bloke! My Mum will not be surprised as I have never been the pink, sugar and spice that little girls are made of, she was hoping for when she dreamed of her little girl.
I do love the younger age demographic though! lol I always said I was young at heart.
I was prompted to go check this out by this post by fellow geeky girl ‘The Mary Sue’ who wrote this post: “Does Google Not Understand Women or Just Geek Women?”
You can check yours on this link.
I have to admit I am not sure I want to change this, as I certainly don’t want Google to show me ads for girls, well girls according to Google anyway… What are your thoughts?
These demographics also affect your search results as your search results are all tied up with semantic search and the social graph and it is so important for you to understand what this means, see previous posts on this subject here: Google, G+ and Your World Search Integration and this one Future SEO Pandas, Apple and Siri Oh My!
NOTE: I decided to remove male and enter female just to mess up their ideas of girls and boys and see what happens next, lol.
