I have an interesting question...

do you ever click adverts/sponsored-by-links that you come accross on webpages??

The_JinJ 10-20-2007 12:51 PM

Very rarely tbh

Rarely, most of the time if this happens it's by accident. But I might click one if it looks interesting to me.

I occasionally click some of LQ's ads regardless of what they are. Other sites, no.

No I block them.

No, hardly ever..there are some exceptions, if I'm really looking for something specific and happen to bump into an ad about it - then it's a good way to get more information, but apart from that, never. Grand majority of the ads I meet are just so ugly, irritating, intrusive or just out of the question that I wouldn't click on them even if somebody paid me to do that.

Adverts? Oh those must be the things I hardly ever see, I don't have flash plugins installed in firefox, so I don't see that many, and anything else that gets through, I just ignore anyway - if I need any shopping, my wife does it LOL

adverts? what are those?
adblock plus is the best plugin ever!

Sometimes I click VMWare or Sun ads.

For some reason Sun's designing team makes me fall in love with their stuff.

You seem to have Google ads on your site. Asking people directly to click on the ads to my knowledge is a violation of the terms you agreed to and you can lose your account with Google.

Also as a moderator of this forum, asking members here to click ads on your site is advertising itself, which is against our rules, so I'm asking to have this thread closed. If you ever ask a member to click on your ads or clearly break Google terms by asking others to click on advertisements on your own site, I'm going to report you cause yes, I'm a mean asshole who stands by the rules.

Cheers and no hard feelings, it's rather easy to follow rules, you should read them sometime.

Google's Terms for Adsense under the section "Encouraging clicks": https://www.google.com/adsense/suppo...ui&medium=link

LQ's own rules:

This seems like an obvious one, but thread closed due to advertising.
