As the title says. I'm on a MacBook pro running Safari.
Is this new or something on my computer?
MacBook Air here same setup as you just started this afternoon. Hope there is a fix.
Same experience on a PC running Chrome.
Confirmed here, and they're not one-offs. They're persistent, the entire time you're on the site, floating over the content, following you from page to page.
Annoying on a large monitor. *catastrophic* on a small monitor.
Ugh…Yes, that was added overnight to try the ad placement.
I had my provider add it as the revenue has been down a lot and needed to do something. I can see how it can be a pain for smaller screens and will need to contact them to see if they can check the screen rez and not show based on X or I will just get it removed all together.
They are overseas and it is Friday, so I am not sure how soon I can get it adjusted or stopped.
Sorry it is a bother, just trying to get back some lost revenue.
(Not that is helps much, but you can X it out at the top right for the page you are reading. But it will come back at the next page load. But if it is a long page you need to read, well, you can remove it while reading. Like I said, I know it does not help much and I will see what I can do. Thx)
BTW...Thank you for not using an ad blocker as that surely helps the site. But if you need to, I understand. They also don't show to TCF Club Members as all ads are stopped if a club member.
I see it on titantv.com also.
Do you see it here? I ask for you are a TCF Club Member.
Never. Sorry I used "also".
My biggest problem with it was it staying in the same text it started in when I scrolled down and leaving a copy at the bottom of the page. If I give it a little more time before I scroll, it seems to stay put at the bottom, which isn't as bad.
On my iPad 4 running Chrome the ads stay at the bottom -- just a minor annoyance.
I understand the business model but if all consumers were like me, it wouldn't work. I ignore ads -- can't remember ever responding to one. I'm amazed they apparently generate so much revenue for Google and other sites.
@David Bott, is there an obvious reason revenue is down a lot?
Google made changes in how it it does the "bidding" process or something like that. This is ore or less what I gave been told...
"Like I mentioned in my previous email, the Google transition to first-price auction (finalized on 7th of October) has affected the whole industry and the results we're seeing for the last few months haven't been ideal (for a lot of our publishers), as advertisers a lot more conservative when it comes to their budget. Unfortunately, we are not witnessing the normal trends for the quarters in this case but we are expecting things to finally start picking up in November. This market shift I'm afraid is beyond our control but we are doing our best to be on top of this and to improve results, wherever possible. To give you an example of this affecting others, you can read other publisher's feedback here, who are experiencing the same issue."
And here is some info report written on it... https://yieldbird.com/post-first-price/ (This was not written by the publisher company we use...another company.)
This site as well as DBSTalk as seen a large downward hit I am sorry to say. About 25% a actually over the past months. So, well, I am trying to do something and this was one something that type of ad was suggested we try as they sell for a higher amount based on the type of ad it is.
Not complaining at all but there are no ads at all on the site tonight. Very enjoyable!
I haven’t seen ads on this site in years. Worth every penny.
What the Hell???? These HORRIBLE pop-ups were gone most of the week, and now your bring them back for the next weekend??????
"WHAT THE HELL"...Actually I ended up breaking the entire ad system for the last number of days resulting in no ads and no revenue for days. It is just now starting to work again as the ad partners needed to re-verify the site.
I am sorry you do not like them, I can understand that. Even though I hate to say this...feel fee to use an ad blocker or maybe become a club member.
The site needs revenue to operate. We will continue to make adjustments and find a balance.
What happens when the ad pops up when you are scrolling in Safari. Total screen block.
^Did you mean to turn a screen grab into a pdf document?
Does refreshing the page still work?
Sometimes/mostly yes. Temporarily.
