CBS ads?

    I found the new ad on my blog, which is ‘promoted by CBS Local’. What is this and am I extra paid for that (along with WordAds) or this is some sponsored link (for WordPress to cover the costs of operating the site)?

    Here is a screengrab:

    Hi, I’m also experiencing the same problem with ads at my blog, Can anyone help?



    To off-set the costs of providing free hosting to millions of bloggers, has been running advertising on our free hosted blogs since 2006. Many bloggers do not know this because despite the fact they ticked the box required to get a free blog, they did not read the ToS. Many also do not read the advertising entry in the support documents after registering their username and blog(s). Also note that as the ads do not display to us when we are logged in, and as many use browsers with ad blockers when logged out, they may not realize they are there at all.

    If the ads you see are found at the end of blog posts then what you are seeing is generated advertising. All of ads are family-friendly. If you feel an ad is inappropriate please take a screenshot of it, upload it via Media -> Add New to your Media Library. Then return to this thread to post the file name to let Staff them know it’s there for them to view.

    Lastly, note to eliminate all advertising on our free hosted blogs we can purchase an annually renewable No-Ads upgrade.



    I believe the issue with is not the fact that there were ads, but that the ads were breaking the layout.

    The ads are not appearing at the moment, so no screenshot is possible right now.

    If that’s the case then this is not the same issue that mojatv reported in his/her thread. It ought to be posted into a new thread to avoid creating any confusion in this thread.
