Google Ads

post #1 of 328
Thread Starter 
When I clicked an ad, there wasn't a popup, just took over my mothering window. Is there a way to change that? So it'll open a new window??

Who are we supposed to contact again about the ads?

Right now I see advertisements that don't jive with the Mothering ideal, and I know that we are supposed to have a place we let the administrators know.

Where do we report questionable google ads, again?

I've got one. It's not obscene or anything, but it's for an elective 4D ultrasound place - it doesn't seem to fit into the MDC image. Here a copy of the shortcut link http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com...046568995&nm=4

We're looking for a place to have a 'repot ads' button, in the meantime, feel free to PM me. Try to grab the link if you can.

I believe google ads are click through only. This means that it will not open a new window. I find the back button to work very well

do we report anything we dont think belongs advertsed in certain forums to a mod or what? the vaccination forum and CAC forum have ads that definatly dont fit the ideal in either one.

The ads are not forum specific, so just report to ME (or the mods will not be happy with me and I'll sift through them and report them to Cynthia.

Actually scratch that - email webmaster@mothering.com with questionable ads - thanks!

I am noticing that it keeps advertising babycenter.com. Isn't that a competitor to mothering.com?

mothering should run ads that have nothing to do with kids.

because isn't it pretty much a given that we aren't all about whatever mainstream ads tell us we need to buy/do? vaccinate, circumsize, do this special ultrasound, etc. etc.

omg..im seeing website that support circumcision in teh CAC forum! im just flabergasted! really!

when i came to MDC with 2 circ'd boys, i really wasnt looking for reasons NOT to circ. im sure with these ads, i woudlnt have thought twice about it.

OMG!

I just found an add for a doctors book that slams waterbirths... looks like so many adds are going to go against what mothering stands for.

I don't see any ads on my screen. Where are they all coming from?

Left column next to the table that houses the posts.

So how do you c&p an ad address without clicking on the ad?

Does anyone find the incontinence ads a little weird? Like, moms have issues with incontinence from childbirth, let's put incontinence ads in with the parent/child ads. :/

Right click and select "properties" and C&P the address from the little window that comes up.

american baby and babycenter?

there is NO way to monitor all these ads! i dont have time to research who Dr. whatshisname is that is being advertised here to make sure he doesnt promote CIO, spanking, rewards systems, etc.

How, exactly, do these raise money? is it be clicks? b/c if it is, im not going to click on any of them. i am curious as to what some of them are, but i dont spend money on stuff like that. if i spend money via this website, its by going to the list of merchants on the homepage here.

i literally feel myself getting ill looking at American Baby and babycenter ads for BIRTH STORIES! yeh, im sure mine would compare to theirs! all i can say is that MDC is becoming less and less safe here. how are these ads going to be monitored??? i really dont understand this at all.
