For a while, the workaround was to use the TripAdvisor RSS feed for your property, until TA stopped even that a few days ago.
The solution is fiendishly devious: pull the code from a simple html page on your server using an IFRAME in your post or page. Specifically:
1. Get your review widget code, and save to a file called say ta_review.htm
2. FTP the ta_review.htm page to your web server.
3. Insert an IFRAME in your post/page (don't forget to switch to HTML view). Something like this:
<iframe src="http://www.yourwebsite.com/ta/ta_review.htm" height="600" width="500" frameborder="0"></iframe>
4. And Robert is truly your mother's brother.

It's a little tiresome to be remarketed to badly. I see ads for service I use and am signed-up for. So why remarket to me?
Fortunately, you can opt out of remarketing. Go to https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/ and scroll down to 'Opt-out settings' for both types of Google ads.
On a related subject, we know that signing-out of Google stops tracking our search history, but even then, you need to opt-out of Google's web history tracking by going to https://www.google.com/history/optout when you're signed out.

We walked from the car park at Trentabank Reservoir, and it's a steady climb up through the pines on a wide track for the first half hour or so
After that, the trail leave the Macclesfield Forest and crosses the open moor. Again, the trail is good, and soon you're walking along flagstones all the way to the top.
Despite research, I've still to find out who laid this impressive line of grave-stone size stones all the way to the top. I'm not complaining, it makes the walk easier, especially when I had to carry Liam a way (fortunately, he got off and skipped his way to the top!).
But an hour after setting off we made it to the top, and even with the low clouds the view was impressive. We'd have spent longer on the summit but the wind was fierce. Total time: 2 hours.

It shows that QS is a reflection of the reflection of the relationship between keywords and ads, rather than the 'quality' of the landing page. In particular:
