Evil Ads, Ads will now be shown when these properties hold true

  • Sidebar Ad – category pages
  • Tweener Ad – Entry Pages
  • Interstitial – Every three page views, every six hours

I know how much ads annoy people but check this out, in 2006 companies spent $16.8 Billion on ads alone. This site costs roughly $6 a month to maintain. So I just need to find a way to earn the $6 per month back. If I do get pretty good at this I might earn enough to pay for Emma’s college tuition (*cough* *not gonna happen* *cough*).

These ads are not final, I’m going through a process called multivariate testing where over a course of time I’ll be presenting multiple templates with multiple ad positions and see where I’m getting the optimum click through rates.

Please send me a feedback. Any feedback will do, but the more reasonable, the better.
