About Those Ads… October 22, 2014

About Those Ads…

I know you’re all annoyed by the autoplay video ads on this site… and if you’re reading this on an iPhone, you’ve probably been redirected to the App store by now.

A few comments about that:

  • It annoys the hell out of me, too. It’s frustrating when even I can’t read things on my own site because the ads get in the way.
  • I understand the need for ads, but not ones that take away from the reading experience. Patheos knows that. They don’t want these kinds of ads either — they certainly didn’t request them — and our tech folks are working as hard as they can to put a stop to them. (Really.)
  • The App store redirect bug is affecting lots of websites. (We don’t make money when you buy an App that way, in case you’re wondering.)
  • If you want to help us stop the autoplay ads, here’s what you can do:

    1) Right-click on the ad.
    2) Click “Inspect Element” (A window of code will open).
    3) Take a screenshot of the entire window and all the code.
    4) Email the screenshot to blogops@patheos.com.

Thanks for bearing with us.
