automatic ads

  1. I have nothing against ads appearing on my blog, but I am not happy with the ones vaguely porno that are running now. Can you choose better ones?

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

  2. Which ad?

  3. agencies or websites for singles. Nothing vulgar, but still annoying. It says underneath they are "not ads of the site", so I wondered if I could have them changed.

  4. You need to talk to WordPress.com staff about this so I shall flag it for their attention.

  5. It says underneath they are "not ads of the site",

    That doesn't sound like a WP inserted ad.

    Are you seeing them while logged in?

    You may have a contaminated browser extension, add-on or toolbar. Try disabling any and all you have installed, especially unfamiliar ones.

  6. That's what I feared. I think I'm the only one who sees them.
    thanks.

  7. Hi there,

    We do occasionally run ads in order to keep free services free. However ads of the nature you describe are not permitted in our advertiser's network.

    I did not see that ad when visiting the site. If you do see an offensive ad again, please make a screenshot and attach it to a reply to this message. We take this very seriously.

    Here's how to make a screenshot:

    Please note that it's possible for ads to appear in your browser that were not placed there by WordPress.com. These ads are sometimes caused by malware or a virus, but more often it is due to a browser extension or toolbar that you may have installed in your browser.

    These sites have further explanation and suggestions for eliminating the ads:

    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any further questions.

    Best,

  8. Sorry I am so late in answering, but I got seriously ill. It was all very helpful. The annoyance lasted only a couple of days and it was surely due to the browser. Everything seems to be under control again.
    Thankyou
