A few similar questions have already been asked, like this one, but it doesn’t answer my doubts.
I read many articles too online, all I could understand is that it is related to cookies. But they didn’t give simple examples so I can understand how it works.
From what I know, if I set a cookie using my website
www.xyz.com in a browser, it can only be accessed on same domain. So if I have another website

One or two articles I found that tried to explain this were too advanced for me to understand. They went too deep into IP settings and blah blah blah. I know in reality things are actually complex, but I’m sure it still can be explained simply.
So I need a simple example that can help me understand how it works.
Something like, if I search for a product on
www.site1.com, how would ads on
www.site2.com be related to that product I was searching for.
