I couldn't have said it better myself
We were getting good results before the deceptive ads started appearing, so, not really.
Once the deceptive ads started appearing, I submitted this particular question to our supplier and they have given me an acceptable answer. The deceptive ads are a problem for them as much as they're a problem for us. If/when these ads get too bothersome, we might just end up giving up on our supplier and then they'd lose business.
Just to show you we're serious about finding long term solutions for this, this gives you an idea on how many emails I'm exchanging with them lately about the deceptive ads:
We're working on identifying the source platform that's generating the deceptive ads. It's more complicated than it sounds.
Its not like they can't hire people to filter the scam from the real ads there just lazy and use bots
Getting pop up ads and oversized mobile ads (bottom of the screen) on iphone.
Edit: Here’s one of the links.
I’m also on an iPhone (7+). With pop ups blocked in settings these adds still take over and you can’t go back forcing you to kill safari and start over. Is there a better way?
uBlock Origin for Firefox. It works on quantum mobile as well.
I never have to see an add again. You can also just use some specific filters as well.
Not everyone wants to use Firefox for android, and a fair few people are also using iOS devices which don't have add-on support for Firefox, so this isn't an ideal solution. Also some people actually want to support certain sites like GBAtemp by showing ads.
An adblocker is not the solution here, it's for Costello to get the ad company to stop showing popup ads.
Good point... But don't Patreon supporters get ad-free stuff, or is that my imagination?
They do, because they support the site with actual money instead of having ads. For people who don't have free money like that though, they can just disable their adblocker and support temp that way.
They , but for people who can't/won't use patreon, ads are a way to support the site without necessarily spending money.
Thanks to the OP to bring up this topic. Experienced it as well a couple of days ago, even worse then mentioned. On my phone the browser (Chrome) didn't open a new tab, but use the existing one. And as nagging as those ads are, my attempts at using the back button to get back to GBATemp got stomped by an instant redirection.
I'm using Android with Chrome and I don't get any pop-up ad but I hope this will be fixed son.
Im part of that crowd except the add hijacks safari and I can’t do anything but force close safari and try to find where I was in whatever thread I was reading.
no ads here, using an iphone4 with the minimal host blocker
I haven't gotten one In a week
we have managed to make changes that should only enable Adsense ads (so basically no other format is possible) for most traffic source where popups/deceptive ads have been reported to appear.
Should anyone get any deceptive ad or popup from now on, could you please post screenshots here ? thanks!
I found a advertisement in the middle of a review i was looking at. Is this supposed to happen?
