One of my readers has complained that this website contains too many ads. I hadn’t thought of this as a problem because I’m somehow able to filter out the ads when I visit other websites. I really do need the ads in order to afford to maintain the website properly, because even with the ads, I figure that I’m making less than $15.00 per hour. (Unless Drudge Reports links to one of my articles – then it’s bonanza day. But that doesn’t happen very often.)
Anyway, here’s the reader’s email:
“I have a complaint. I realize you have no control over it and there is absolutley nothing to be done about it but here goes. There is so much advertising on your web pages I find it is too distracting and troublesome to try and read the articles. Each story is totally surrounded by ads and the middle of each story is broken up by many ads. I find it difficult to concentrate on the stories. Sorry Robert, but I have given up on your web page. I hope some how things can be improved.”
Do the ads bother you as much as they do this reader?
