Adsense getting "tougher"??

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by Redleg, Sep 2, 2004.

    I just noticed a new thing today, when I was surfing around in my lunchbreak at work.
    Our internet connection is protected by heavy firewalls, anti-spam/ad/pop-up etc. software, so almost all ads is blocked (white out).
    Adsense did also leave a big white field when I surfed on sites with adsense ads.

    But today I could view the adsense ads on every site I visited..
    Never happened before.

    All other ads are blocked as normal, so I doubt that the security has become weaker here.. :)

    I do also believe that the number of impressiond/day has gone up a bit the last few days as well, but the number of visitors has stayed the same..

    Anyone else noticed this?

    Could be good news. :D

    Probably related to javascript and a security setting either implemented by you or your company on your browser.

    I have seen this before, but it is usually when I am playing with my security settings. I don't think G is changing anything.

    I don't think my work is changing anything either..
    (Army...)

    And it's (as far as I can see) only affecting the adsense ads too, every other ad type is still gone.

    Yeah, they have added a lot of new features now, so they may also have "played" a bit with the javascript as well.. :)

    Do you block in-line ads too? I find that really unfair, unless they're distract you so much from your work that you have no other choice. That is, you make money from ads on your site yet you visit other sites for free.

    Sorry, but that's my take on it.

    well, I for one hope it is a change in something G did. That would be great news as I am sure adsense revenues would skyrocket if they figured out a way to get past most firewall setups.

    i dont think that google is getting tougher in any way. I do however think it is getting weaker(i know thats not the right word). Because recently they said that you can have up to 3 ads per page, previously you couldnt

    One difference I recently noticed after upgrading to Windows Service Pack 2 and switching from Netscape to Firefox was that the Adsense Ads now say "Goooooogle" - maybe I should go back to using IE?!? ;-)

    YES!!

    SP2 did far worse to me. My computer simply wouldn't run with it. Had to go into Safe Mode and download my files onto 128M memory sticks to transfer to CD on my other computer. Very tedious. I still don't have all my programs reinstalled, but I'm NOT putting SP2 back. My sister works for Macromedia, and their tech support won't let them install SP2 until it is more stable.

    It has about a 69% approval rating at download.com - abysmal! More horror stories there.

    SP2 for XP is a security update... Most people are not going to be happy b/c of how much the desktop is now locked down. Linux has been doing this for years and Microsoft gets chastized for not having a locked down desktop and when they do lock it down they get chastized again. They can't seem to win for loosing. As a system admin I like SP2 Granted it will be more inconventent for the user that is use to having a wide open system but in long run will create a much secure and stable computer environment.
