Sitenotes: What do the ads look like to you?

by Dredd77

Hey folks, just wanting to get a little more feedback on the ads. One of our readers mentioned that there’s a pop-up video that takes over their whole screen whenever the visit the site now, and that’s a cause for concern.

Since we only know what we can see, here’s what we’ve thought the ads are doing:

This is what we see…

In most cases, the ads appear under the most recent post, though if you dig back through older pages it then appears under the most recent one for that page.

Please let us know if you’re seeing the ads manifest themselves in other ways, like the aforementioned pop-up. This may be a technical issue we can have resolved if we bring it to WordPress’s attention.

    Perhaps I’m nitpicky here, but shouldn’t it be “What *do* the ads …” ? 🙂

    Other than that, I don’t see the screen-filling ad.

      Fixed! Never too nitpicky- especially when the typos are in the titles.

  2. The image you posted – that’s how the ads appear on all my machines/browsers I’ve checked (Mac, Firefox/Safari)…

    I have adblock for firefox, so I don’t get ads.
