CR's new unrelated advertising
« on: February 08, 2018, 07:50:06 PM »
Today for the first time I see advertisements on the front page of CR. While I understand a site owners right to profit from it's data base of subscribers, at least make the  ads relevant to the audience!

Really strange, now I cannot see the ads. I meant to do a screen shot, but did not!

Ok now i found it, it is on the page for new DGI Mavic pro II AND on every main announcement on the home page!

Sorry, I do not approve on this actions...

Ads are generally served from Google AdSense. What you see is linked to your personal browsing history, so if you don't like it........

Sorry, I visit this site every day and have never seen these ads..I block all google links and many others within my browser, but maybe something has failed there...

Ads are based on web sites you have visited, and if you use Facebook, it may even include ads for sites your friends have visited.  You can clear out your cookies and then get randomly inserted ads that may be all photography oriented.

I strongly suggest that you educate yourself about how ads are directed based on your browsing history.

Please, support sites by either donating or not whining about advertising.  For crying out loud.

So you would ask me or anyone to support the ads I posted?

You might try reading again what I wrote. Especially the part about whining.

Better yet instead of complaining, make some helpful suggestions regarding paying the bills to keep this site running.

Yeah, with all the people that view this site, it probably costs a lot. I blame all these people who stay logged in 24/7 (I'm sure I'm missing a few):

I keep getting adds for retirement homes, and I have never searched for them.....

Does Google know something that I don’t?
