What is Evidon? It appears when I click Ad choices.

    The image is a snip I took of an ad displayed on one of my hubs. Originally I became curious because of this thread 'Terrible Background Ads'. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/87959#post1882395

    Is this a new feature?

    When I clicked on ad choices it opened up a new browser to this page:

    http://info.evidon.com/more_info/380,4310?cps[4310]=84

    It seems you can opt out of a variety of companies using Evidon.

    I clicked it Ad choices again (without clicking the ad) and then it brought me to a page called 'Fetchback'.

    I'm a bit confused.

    Thanks!

      She quite clearly stated she did NOT click the ad.

    Are you clicking on ads on your own Hubs?  Are you doing it repeatedly?

    That's one of the ways to lose your Adsense account...

    Evidon is the company behind Ghostery (that blocks ads) and is on mission to regulate ad delivery via opt-in format. Clicking on ad-choices button will take you to the opt-in form where you can opt-out of ads from the advertisers which are part of the evidon group.

    By the way, if you're going to click on your own ad while loggin in to hubpages, do keep in mind that it is hubpages share and another point is that clicking on your own ad from same IP while logged out of hubpages will going to cost you adsense account.

    I didn't click on the ad, just where it sais Adchoice on the upper right hand corner of where the ad is. It opened up another window but it had nothing related to the add itself, just Evidon.

      Thanks Skyfire.

      Ok I went to Google and was able to get a reply since there were concerns that my clicking on Ad Choices was mistaken for clicking on the Ad's themselves.

      Here is the link and the response I received.
