WordPress advertisements

October 15, 2013

I have just learned that WordPress is occasionally inserting advertisements at the bottom of posts on this site. This is annoying. I have an option to purchase a ‘No Ads Upgrade’, but before doing so I would like to have some idea how frequently the advertisements are appearing. One in a hundred? One in three?

If you’ve noticed ads on this blog, and especially if you’ve found them intrusive, I’d appreciate if you could leave a brief comment letting me know. If you read the blog with some regularity and have a feel for how frequently or infrequently WordPress is inserting them, such intelligence would be very welcome.

Thank you.

    Unfortunately, it’s been a while since I’ve been here very often, but I’m pretty sure I’ve noticed them before. I think I would have told you if there had been anything that was more than just mildly annoying. I ignore them.

    Anyway, no ads would be so horrible as to keep me from reading your blog.

    Well, thanks for that, Janet. No worries about infrequent visits. You’ve had your hands full, to say the least.

  4. I think I see them fairly frequently, on this and other WP blogs, when I click on a specific post to see the comments. There’s one right now, for instance, for “Sauza Sparkling Margarita.” But the truth is I’ve gotten so well-trained in ignoring ads that I’m not real conscious of them. They’re YouTube videos, so there’s a moment when I think it’s something someone has posted, but I immediately realize it’s not, and then it sort of becomes invisible.

  5. In other words, they don’t really bother me.

    Still, that is annoying to me. I suppose I cannot complain too loudly considering that this blog hosting platform is free. I might spring for the ‘no ads’ option just for my own satisfaction.
