Stupid ads

Post by Deleted User 59 » 5 months ago

I keep getting redirect ads served through whatever provider you've used for advertising. Basically one of those "Win a £200 Aldi Gift Card" fake giveaways that pretend to be from your ISP (in my case, BT).

Doesn't happen all the time though, maybe once every 5-20 clicks on the site but it may be worth removing ads for now or replacing them with something that isn't going to really have malicious things.

Thanks for anything... unless you tell me to get AdPlock Blus (see what I did there MeowsePad, look at the capitals...) or something like that. Given the age of most users are probably in their mid-20s (I happen to maybe be the youngest active user on the entire board at 17), it might be wise just having a nice donate button :)

It's AdSense. I guess my goal would just be to earn potentially enough to cover a VPS. I don't mind if you block the ads. I haven't encountered any redirect ads and find it odd that you are.

This happens to me all the time when I go onto KnowYourMeme or any Fandom page, I hate it

I can block ads but I also view these sites on mobile a lot and don't have that kind of ability there

Has it happened to you on this forum at all?

Let me know if it does. Hopefully it was a fluke. I'd prefer to keep the ads if possible, but I'll remove them if they become too invasive.

Hasn't happened for a while. Did you change ad networks?

I've been seeing the AdSense bot here :P

I haven't really changed anything. O_o Hopefully it was just a fluke.
