Nasty Adverts – BE GONE!

Hi Folks,

Different adverts are shown on StatCounter in different parts of the world.

So, here in StatCounter HQ, we don’t actually get to see every single advert shown to our members.

We were VERY annoyed last night to discover that some nasty adverts had crept onto the StatCounter site… Please accept our apologies for this.

We HATE nasty site-invading ads and we don’t want them on StatCounter.

HUGE thanks are due to StatCounter member Mike Miller for alerting us to this problem and helping us to put it right ASAP.

Cheers Mike 😉

StatCounter advertising revenue is used to fund our free service – but we only want the nicest, best behaved ads on our site…

  1. I was pretty amazed too and really surprised that they even noticed my post and even more amazed that they took care of it so quickly.

    Great job. And just one more reason why I’ll be sticking around with StatCounter.

  2. Google Ads are difficult to control, they are however easy to put up which is why most people do so.

    The only way that you can control your advertising is by having all links and banners which you have chosen yourselves, on a cost per click, or cost per action (You get cash dependent on people clicking, like adsense, or on an action, such as filling in a form, or affiliate links for getting people to buy something).

    These are ways to ensure that you don’t have bad adverts, it just takes more time, but the additional return can be worth it though.

    I don’t understand how the Google advertising would return bad ads, there isn’t anything of that nature on here… is there?
