So today made it official, we have finally left Text-link-ads. I got into somewhat of a dispute with the inventory manager after receiving another email (second one in the last 3 months) about ad’s not displaying right. I let them know straight up that ad’s have been displaying fine in the sidebar of each post/page since day one, and there’s never been any problems. The response I received was that clients expect the links to be found on the homepage. I would hope that most of our link advertisers had the knowledge to think about visiting the site themselves before purchasing ads, and we have never hid the fact that text ads appear on every page except the homepage. I’ve been looking for a way to get away from TLA lately anyways, and this was finally the “straw that broke the camels back” and will allow us to offer our own link ads at most more reasonable rates. I’ll be updating the advertising page shortly.
In other news, Ronalfy’s Feed-Styler plugin looks like it’s working great. I’ll be installing it shortly here on DL and he plans on releasing it towards the end of the week! Stay tuned.
