Everybody these days wants to make a buck from advertising… whether it’s selling ads or buying ads, the market is pretty saturated. So much so, that ads are beginning to pop up in some of the WORST places. Here are a few examples:
There are several instances where I’ve seen “Sponsored Links” (aka, text links) show up on product pages. If you’re an online store, sell your products… not your “content”.
- Portfolio Sites:
If you’re trying to sell yourself and your work, don’t put Google ads on there… even if it also serves as your blog.
- Church Websites:
I understand that churches survive off of the generosity of their followers, but putting ads on your 4-page information site is just tacky.
I know there are other examples out there… care to share?
