Should we eliminate Infolinks embedded text ads?

Yes, they serve no purpose other than to annoy people. Get rid of them.

Poll: Should we get rid of Infolinks ads in the forum?

Post by TruthSeeker » November 19th, 2017, 4:54 pm

Should we have Infolinks ads in the forum? These are ads that change your text to a blue highlighted text which ultimately link to Facebook. I say they are annoying and distract from the forum. They change your words into saying something that you did not say. They also imply you endorse Facebook. I say get rid of them.

What's your opinion?

Getting rid of that loser who keeps on creating new accounts and banging on about AFA should be the first task.

So this forum is a democracy now? lol

I'll remove the text link ads if they're not profitable of course. We will see. :P

+1 :lol:

Also, instead of the weird attempts to increase revenue like the links, Winston should be updating with new content from his trips or even compensating those of us that post reports with pics once in a while. Enough with the rehashing of the Russia trips from the early 2000's.
Heck I would post more if he gave me 25 or 30 bucks for a report, just to get a few beers out of it.
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

Winston, here is an account of someone who played with this http://ask.mybloggertricks.com/t/why-in ... -blog/2908
I'm using infolinks with my blog but one thing I have noticed that infolinks shows only Facebook ads on my blog. All infolinks publishers face this problem. I don't know that is this a problem with my account or they have only one advertiser. One more thing, I have a blog with 100 pageviews/day. I use infolinks with it but my total revenue is still zero. If you have experienced with infolinks, then please answer me that what is the problem?

It's worth taking them off if they're just making a few bucks a month. I tried them and I made less than a dollar a month or something.

Winston should be doing more like R***h V and writing more books, courses and actual products.

Also if he did more keyword research and SEO he could write more valuable content and massively increase overall site visitors.

Alright you guys win. I've turned off the Infolinks text ads. I may put some of their ads in the ad block after the first post in each topic thread though, where it will be less intrusive. Democracy wins this time. lol :-P Score 1 for the democratic forum. :-D

Btw, why would Facebook need to advertise? Doesn't everyone know about them already? Isn't FB overpopulated? It doesn't need any more people. Sheesh. Every airhead is already on there.

Winston, don't you have the option in your Infolinks settings which advertisers to show and not to show? All we are getting is FB ads. Maybe block them out entirely. Surely Infolinks has other advertisers. Check into that.

No infolinks doesnt give you that option. Its automated system decides all that. But i am looking into better advertising platforms though.
