I’ve dropped one ad provider on Allpar and cut ads from another in half.
The ads that appeared in the margins on very large monitors are gone. They did not provide enough money to compensate for the added “weight” in page scripts.
The in-image ads are now showing up randomly 50% of the time, because they are such a nuisance.
There are still ads under review. Allpar’s expenses have not changed, but ad revenue is falling. Ideally we would have a single site sponsor or perhaps a small number of sponsors but that would require an ad salesman and we don’t have one of those, unless you are an ad salesman who wants the job.
Ads pay all of Allpar’s expenses, which include such things as my health insurance, clothing, and food.
