Post by davidl on November 19th 2020, 10:25 pm

Had a lot of Members complaining recently, Adverts Popping up all the Time on Screen........when They go from Topic to Topic Adverts appear in the middle of the Page, or when They making a Post or replying on a Topic, Halfway through it Pops up and interupts There Typing .

Ive had the Usual Google Adverts along the Top of My Forum for a while, but now These have appeared and are ruining My Forum which Ive had for the Past 10 Years, Memberds are getting sick of it and reluctant to Post.

Any Help or Info Anyone Please ...?

Well, that kind of ad exactly happens on other sites, too.   I have seen it on browser gaming sites.  It also happens on ForumsClub.

Thank you for your Address At first when I looked at your forum I never see this but after going around your forum looking at 2 or 3 of your posts I then got what your talking about.

This dose look like it is coming from our Ad's system maybe it is something google have made us have like The Godfather pointed out in his link's 

I would hope that we have some power over this as I can see this is really hard to use your forum if it keeps popping up every time you go over to a new page. No one wants to have to click on the X every time you use a forum.

I Will tag @Luzz and @The Godfather to look in to this as this will defiantly drive members away from your forum and our systems.

Sadly it dose look like a google ad's thing but I hope that we have the right to change the way the ad's are placed on our forums but I don't know as I don't work in the head office and not seen the google ad's tools.

I only notice them after I click a link, button, option, game, etc.  So from what I have seen, it seems you have to do something for them to appear.

I will tell you how it worked on the members forum @SLGray each time I clicked on a forum it then popped up when I refreshed a page it then was no there but as soon as I clicked on a new forum it popped up again.

So yes it does look like it's when you click some thing or when it's a new page but this is a lot to take for our members and our host. No one would like it for to long.

The only way to stop this would to buy a package and remove ad's but not everyone has the money for this.

So Yes each time I clicked on a forum or a post it popped up and that is not good at all.

In the article it looks like the popup ads cab be disabled (Forumotion would have to do it in their adsense account). It does seem like a Google update because a few sites I am on suddenly have them. Bad idea by Google as they make ads even more annoying and make people want to get adblocker even more.

Hello @davidl

Please can you test again and tell us if it's better now?

We understand, it's really annoying for all of us. Especially when clicking on links to connect or disconnect Adverts Popping Up  1f621

Google Adsense is our main partner in terms of advertising and in addition, it guarantees quality content. But they removed many options to limit the appearance of certain advertisements (before we could give a percentage, block some formats...). Likewise, Google is becoming very invasive on display formats and frequencies.

My basic testing on 3 sites have not had any problems with the Ad's but lets see if the members have any more problems

I spent 10 minuets on each forum just going over posts with no problems.

No it depends on Google Adsense, the team is checking the option available for this ad. Google is strongly pushing the display of its ads at the moment. And even on very intrusive formats when Google punished publishers who used them...
