Adblock Friendly Advertising On SmackJeeves

Postby cultbasilisk1989 » September 5th, 2017, 3:18 pm

I have been investigating routes of promotion for my site and I saw that SJ does have advertising.

However, when I went to the site, the whole thing was blocked by UBlock.

Now I am seeing banners on the front page which seem to be for other SJ sites.

Could I get some information about how that works? Are these local ads? Or do they go through the projectwonderful.com ad servers? (which would get blocked by UBlock and other lists)

If I do spend money on ads, I would like them served locally (this would be the suggestion of this post) and not by a 3rd party who has been blocked on one of the major Ad Block list.

Thanks!

No. Project Wonderful ads are served from PW. The ads you're seeing are SJ's own ad rotation, still in the testing stages. You can find more info on those here.
