    Adsense Local Ads
    I live in Canada and I am seeing most of my Adsense ads appearing with Canadian merchants. Groupon ads display deals at the closest major city to me. Google is really get big on local searches and this is reflected in adsense ads.

    Groupon must be spending a bundle on AdWords. Apparently, I am seeing in the Baltimore area what you are observing in your locale.

    My Baltimore sites have shown increased AdSense rev ever since the Groupon ads started appearing in force. I likely do MUCH better with the AdSense increase than I would if I had signed up as a Groupon Aff. Go figure...but EVERY click generates revenue, not just those with an occasional conversion.

    Typing the above made me check another site. Sooo...I'm also seeing the same thing for a small, but old, DC site.

    Adsense ads have been showing by your interest and your ip addy for a while now. Your neighbor can visit the same sites as you and get different ads based on his surfing habits.

    True, but I think the Groupon displays are primarily location based.

    Even if they are location based you still might not see Groupon ads.
