Not so wonderful?

| July 31, 2013

Despite the fact they are a lot better than Adsense, Project Wonderful are currently not entirely wonderful as far as I am concerned. They’ve placed some interesting restrictions on our latest site about books: They will only allow ads on one class of post.We should not feature the descriptions, genre, authors, or covers of the […]

An interesting follow-up to the Price of Publicity: Every ad  offered by Google on websites that we visit on computers in the office seems to have changed to “Fiverr: Come back we miss you.” In the same week that we had to close an account set up without authorisation this seems odd.It’s a good service […]
