    John,

    adverts are served directly bu Google based upon our site content and individual user browsing habittys.

    1) you can block and report any inappropriate advert served to you, by clicking on the delete button on the ad and selecting an appropriate reson for the deletion.

    2) I have been through some of the recent adverts served and ive barred one for a Hiking / Walking dating site and one for BluTv but on the whole, all the adverts seem relavant to our web site or our web users activity.

    I cannot see or block the adverts that are user specific.

    you can opt out of personalised adverts

    https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en-GB

    Google says they dont serv porn or offensive ads, so you should not see that type of content. ( I never have)

    There is an option on the ad delete to explain why you see an advert, maybe try that to understand why an ad was served to you.

    I ahve reduced site advertising to a minimum,

    I'm all ears as to how to fund this resource without advertising.

    or with advertising that i can control.


    Would any users with businesses like to sponser the site in exchnage for some discrete adverts - then I could remove Google served ads all together.

    Thanks for the reply Lester.
    I'm the only one who uses this computer and I don't access sites that might lead to Google putting those ads my way.
    The ones in question were only showing on my Android phone so maybe there's some other way it all happens.
    I want to keep the Forum white listed on the phone for obvious reasons.
    I don't have an ad stopper on my computer - the screen is big enough to ignore the ads whereas on the phone they can take over. I do occasionally click on a site on the forum that suits my tastes mostly to try to head some $ your way. I'll continue to do that. Any dubious ads in future I'll follow your advice.
    Regards
    John

    Hi Lester-
    I don't object to ads AROUND the posts, but I find the ads that are being inserted in the middle of the posts to be very annoying. Are they absolutely necessary?

    Also- FYI- Some of the ads, like "Never Pay for TV Again" are really misleading. In this case, it's nothing more than on over-the-air TV antenna but they are making it sound like it is barely legal cutting edge technology.

    Just my 2 cents' worth.

    Hi, thanks for your question. I think I explained early on. This web resource costs both time and money to run. Advertising was introduced as a means to cover some of the costs. I did this initially to get some idea of the revenue that could be expected, you may recall early on there were a number of different adverts from different sources - eBay-Google-Amazon and private ads. It soon became obvious that the best revenue earner was Google so other advertising was dropped. By confining advertising to Google we get not only a less cluttered web site but good feedback on the advertising results, a very easy to use API and a revenue stream that is a valuable contribution towards costs.

    The underlying issue is that sales of the compiler are low to non-existent. Profits from NEW compiler sales by Crownhill are shared between Les and Crownhill. The revenue stream from new compiler sales does not cover the cost of this resource. Charging for access to this resource is clearly not going to be an acceptable solution. I am happy to consider any other method of raising revenue, but at present, the format, volume, and type of advertising that Google supplies seem to be the best option.


    I'd be interested to see any screenshots you have of overly intrusive advertising. It may be that I can do something to remove adverts that too intrusive.

    Regarding misleading advertising.

    If googleare supplying advcerts that are misleading, please refer to the following link to Goglespolicy on misrepresentation. The advertising material is fed by Google, Crownhill does not control what adverts you see. If you are unhappy with an advert and you do not want to go to the rreouble of reporting it to Gogle, you can simply disable the advert by clicking on the icon on the advert.

    I'm not against advertising at all, and I CERTAINLY want Crownhill and Les to make a profit on this. I'm just suggesting a tweak, if possible.

    OK, thanks for the screen shot

    You should not see that type of inclusion on every post.

    I'll take a look, but if you are seeing that on every post sometghing is wrong.

    OK, that is correct then.

    Google is very strict and very clever. They don't reward unless the click-throughs are generating income for the advertisers. The adverts are very targetted unless you use some masking method. If Google is tracking you, you see adverts directly related to your browsing and interests.

    If I reduce the advertising how do I make up the loss in revenue?

    I'm open to suggestions, but to date, I've had none that are practical.

    Make sure you check both you antivirus software and your browser for Ad/banner blocking settings. I got tripped up with that one as I initially missed it in my antivirus software, when I found it I just added the forum as an exception to allow banners.
