I noticed over the past few days that ads have been added into my blog posts. They appear within my text content as links that can be clicked on. I have never seen this before and it is upsetting to have some of my writing turned into ad links without my permission. How can I stop these ads showing up for my readers? I don’t mind ads at the bottom or side of my blog… but having them forced into my written content is upsetting.
That’s a malware issue. 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.
