Nuffnang and Adbrite Ads
I used to have this vertical banner ad spot for Adbrite on my sidebar. I removed it because there’s a flashing ad showing a woman in a red bikini and it’s about something. I forgot. When I saw it, it’s like you came upon an adult blog. Instantly, I removed the ad spot. I am keeping the one below my posts, though.
Don’t get me wrong. I like Adbrite. But I don’t like ads showing women in various states of undress, just to lure people to look at their product. It’s okay for some people, that’s marketing strategy. But I don’t like it. I am not being prudish, as what a friend said to me. I just don’t like the fact that women are being used in such a disrespectful way. There are other ways to advertise your product. I can understand if you are peddling undies or lingerie. But if you are actually marketing WordPress themes or a lifestyle web site… come on! Use another strategy!
On that note, those widgets in Entrecard showing scantily clad women in provocative poses, or those using suggestive images, please don’t bother dropping on my widget. I won’t be returning the favor. I also won’t be approving your ads, thank you.
Nuffnang, on the other hand, is giving us purely family-friendly ads. I love the fact that the products are actually something that will interest readers of various ages. The only thing I don’t get is how come I am not earning as much as others. I get fairly decent traffic for my blog. But I get stuck with earning cents off my ads. Because this blog is the only one actually earning off Nuffnang ads, I am removing all the other ad spots in my other blogs. I’ll just concentrate in this blog for everything Nuffnang.
I hope that I will earn more from Nuffnang. I love the program and I am hoping to stay with them for a long time.
