Where dio those large Floating Ads come from?

    When did the large floating ads appear on our Pages?  Do we receive revenue from these ads or are they designed to take people away from our page before people get a chance to read our content?  What are you feelings about these ads.  I find them extremely distracting but could put up with them if I thought I were receiving revenue from them.

      Hi sallybea, see this thread:

      Sounds like we do get revenue but I'm not sure it's permanent. Yes, they are big but if they are part of the ad program, we could benefit.

        Actually more distracting than big.

        Thanks Jan, that is very helpful.  Nice to get an explanation so quickly.  Goes to show that the w'arm weather has been keeping me away from my computer.  I think the ads look rather tacky but to be honest, a little more money coming our way would be helpful.
        Best wishes,
        Sally

      I believe that they come from advertisers who have one of three reasons:

      1) They are trying to promote brand new products, or

      2) They have old products which are slowing down in sales

      3) They may be a new advertiser for a company and are trying to make a name.

        Hi Examiner,
        Now now, do I detect a little cynicism, surely not!  I do love the way your mind works.
        Thanks for giving us your take on those rather large ads.
        Best wishes,
        Sally

          I am being literal. I have studied them. They are annoying.
