“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about, websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time. Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.” This is subject to change, however. In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while. For rants promote change, and change can be good—right? Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).
If you haven’t noticed before, may I now please direct your attention to my side-bar, and if you will scroll down a little bit from the top, you will see an [Adgitize] widget. Cutting to the chase, Adgitize is another advertising service that is quite similar to Entrecard.
No, that is just not right. For unlike Entrecard, you can actually make some money with Adgitize, and also unlike Entrecard (very much unlike, actually), the management of Adgitize is very accessible.
Speaking of such, I contacted Mr. Ken Brown, who is the owner-operator, chief cook and head bottle washer at Adgitize, a few weeks ago about something that really bothers me, and he assured me that he would immediately look into it. Some progress has been made, but there is a long way to go.
The thing that really bothers me is the placing of other ads very close to the top of the Adgitize widget. Some even take it as far as to place them right up against the top.
No, that would not be a problem with an Entrecard widget. For they only hold one ad at a time. Whereas, an Adgitize widget can hold several, with there being a number of options available on how many and the configuration.
It really is pretty slick. For unless you are aware of what is going on, you will click on those "other" ads while thinking that you are scoring Adgitize points.
No, this is not to say that everyone who has placed "other" ads way too close to their Adgitize widget have done so with nefarious intentions. In fact, I am quite sure that some were just trying to make their sites look more presentable when they set it up that way.
Nonetheless, it is still something to look out for. For there are only so many hours in a day, and making wasted Adgitize clicks just makes the day a little shorter for something else.
On the other hand, if you are happy to click-on the "other" ads, this is all a moot point—isn’t it? That is, except for rewarding the efforts of those who are trying to be slick, of course. Perhaps it would make it easier to justify by thinking of them as being clever—huh?
Included below are some of the sites that I am talking about. Be assured that there are many more.
