Ad incusions on my site

  1. Coupon Dropdown.com has started advertising on my blog. I did not authorize this. I also saw a singles ad at the very end of one page. I do not want advertising on my blog.

    Rod Croskery, The Walnut Diary http://rodcroskery.wordpress.com

    The blog I need help with is rodcroskery.wordpress.com.

  2. Remove the extension(s) in your browser that are causing this.

  3. Notawoodpecker:

    I'm using a MacBook Pro and don't frequent the guts of my browser often. Care to explain what I need to do to remove the varmints?

    Thanks,

    Rod

  4. Sorry, I only use Macs for making pies. :)

    I'm sure someone will be along with further details or you could try some of the Mac related boards.

    But it isn't wordpress inserting those ads.

  5. Thanks for the information.

    Rod

    Is there some reason that you do not search and post a full answer?

    @rodcros

    If the ads you see are found at the end of blog posts then what you are seeing is WordPress.com generated advertising. Look for the About These Ads link to confirm. http://en.wordpress.com/about-these-ads/

    WordPress.com does not use text enhance or text link ads or pop-up ads or links in comments. If you are seeing those then that's a browser-ad-on issue, or in some cases, it's embedded into free games and/or toolbars downloaded from the internet.

    If what you are seeing whenever you save or update a post or page is an automatically added code/script block at the end of posts and pages that you can't delete then see here: Malware Targets Macs and Windows PCs http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/10/02/malware-targets-macs-and-windows-pcs/
