After a week of no ads on Balloon Juice, ads are going to be back today.
We have two kinds of ads.
There are Zergnet ads – the big boxes with photos and articles at the bottom of the post
There are Prosper (sp?) ads that show up at the top of every post and between comments. These are the ones that have the tiny arrows that theoretically close the ad but which are really hard to hit just right, so sometimes you end up clicking on the ads in spite of your best efforts.
We really need your help in knowing exactly which ad-related issues are related to which kinds of ads.
If all goes as requested, just the Zergnet ads will be on for one day, and then just the Prosper ads will be on for one day. John is the person who communicates with the ad guy, so I have no way of knowing which kind of ads will be turned on first.
Here’s what you can do to help, even if you have an ad blocker on.
Ads impact the site even if you have ad blockers on.
Now that the ads have been off for a week+, in the comments below, please describe the changes you have experienced with all ads off.
Once the Zergnet ads come back on, I will put up a new post where you can describe whether you see any changes once the Zergnet ads are back.
Once the Prosper ads come back on, I will put up a new post where you can describe whether you see any changes once the Prosper ads are back.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
