All my Google ads are in Spanish !

Hey...
Googled this, found nothing.  So, maybe it's just me?
I've noticed for the last week or so, all of the adverts i'm being served across all Google products are in Spanish (possibly Portugese, I can't say I can tell the difference).  Anyway, is this happening to anyone else / anyone have any idea what's causing it?
It's beginning to get irritating, I feel like i'm on holiday, but i'm not  Cheesy
Chris.

Nah, it's not that, I figured it was weird routing / DNS or something ?

Have you been to Spain recently and perhaps selected Google.es as the default Google search site?

Re: All my Google ads are in Spanish !

Not a cache / cookies issue, happens across all browsers.  No, haven't been to Spain recently, and it's not just Google, it's all of their products.  Gmail, Youtube, etc, ads on sites.
As for blocking ads, if i login and use my Google Apps for business account, I don't get any google ads anyway (one of the perks of paying for GApps  Wink ), but when not logged in, or using my personal acct, all ads are in Spanish.  Must be some sort of IP / proxy issue, I can't think of anything else that'd cause it.
As I say, not a major issue, just beginning to get irritating  Roll eyes

Re: All my Google ads are in Spanish !

A good question, never actually bothered checking... however, I have now:
PC, Laptop, iPhone... when connected to home BB, either wired or wireless.... ads are in Spanish.
iPhone when connected to mobile network, back to English.  PC and laptop when tethered to iPhone on mobile network, also in English.
Definitely an IP issue.  Never thought I'd find myself actually WANTING adverts, albeit relevant, English ones  Cheesy
