Google ads

Do we realy need (finanually) the google ads
under the new posts task bar AND REPEATED at the bottom?

Ads like "are you single" "loose weight", "stuff.co.nz" (thats a feed on my home google page anyway) "microfinance empowers" ," bid here get 4 free bids", and general crap.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative

Re: Google ads

I am not seeing those adds. Maybe because I became a lifetime member.

Steps,
"We" don't need them financially. We don't need or want them.... the site owners do.
I hate to be blunt but get used to it.

Re: Google ads

I am a little dismayed with the Google ads on TC......especially the one listed below........... I would think this ad wouldn't be acceptable here. I'm not trying to ...... I'm just trying to understand why/how an ad like this benefits Team Camaro.... ......

Re: Google ads

It's a Camaro site, isn't it? Why wouldn't it be acceptable here?

The new ownership of the Team sites own many automotive web sites. Perhaps that's one of them. They can put ads and links to whatever they want to on their sites.
As long as they're not corrupt Flash ads that is.

Just seemed a little odd to me that an ad for another forum would be on Team Camaro......nothing more than curious about it.

Re: Google ads

The Team sites are all forums. Heck, there's even a rustang forum linked along with them.

Everyone's gotta get used to the idea that this isn't the Team Camaro you joined 6 months ago. It's now a tiny gear in a big, complicated transmission. We might help change gears to a point, but we don't have our hands on the shifter anymore.

Thats not blunt...it just straight to the piont, clear simple, no confusion...
So the site owners want to get every penny they can out of the site....google ads and if google ads dont pay enough, get the members sign up for "life time membership" so those members dont have them...maybe not the intention but hell at the end of the day boils down to the same thing.

Re: Google ads

That's sounds right to me Steps. A lot of sites are like that.... you've seen them. Hey, it's the internet and that's how things go when it comes to revenue.
It sucks sometimes, especially when you're used to things being one way and then they suddenly change. You don't have to like it. I sure don't.

I say we all get together and administer an 'intervention' with our old boss Al!! We drive on up to his place, bang on the door and beg him to reconsider.

Failing that we could form a union and all go on strike lol

Owners, bosses, and ma in laws ....all nessary evils of our world

Seriously thu, the owners should not be lookig to the site to make a profit, be it sponsers, membership or google ads, but rather use it as a means to generate profit in other areas..
The only real reason to make a site profitable is to build it up to re sell later as an asset.
