Unexpected ad appears on post?!
An ad for BT appeared at the end of one of my posts tonight, then later the same post had game called ‘Zylom’ instead of the BT ad. What is going on? Googling Zylom doesn’t really answer anything. These are unwelcome on my blog. What can I do about it? The post is the one thats received the most comments, is that the reason?
The blog I need help with is deptfordpudding.com.
WordPress.com has been running ads on our free hosted blogs since 2006. As they do not display to us when we are logged in, and a most bloggers don’t seem to read the Features page, ToS or advertising policy in the support documents, many bloggers are still unaware of this fact. There is only one way to remove them and that’s to purchase an annually renewable No-Ads Ugrade.
It would be better if the ads were in some way appropriate to the content of the blog, I realise that might be difficult. Personally, I found the Zylom ad/game utterly offensive and inappropriate.
I’m so sorry about that. If you wish you can share your feedback with Staff on that ad/game. Here’s the link http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ After you use the searchbox, under the search results, at the bottom of the page there will be a section that says “Have you found the answer to your question?” You can choose either “Yes I found the answer to my question.” or “No I didn’t find the answer to my question and I would like to contact support for help.” The no option will reveal the contact form.
I have never seen an ad on my site before when logged out, but today I saw the Zuma at Zylom ad.
It is tacky. Take a look if you haven’t had the pleasure.
Thanks for tip, timethief, I am going to talk to WP staff. At least they should know how people feel.
I agree – that’s tacky.
