Why The Ads?

We’ve placed some Google AdSense ads on two of our websites, currently on our main site The Rua¬†Network¬†and on The Stray Sod.

  • Why are we showing ads?
    • It’s mostly an experiment in using AdSense to see how well it works, and if it’s even worth using in the long run.
  • Can they be blocked?
    • They sure can! Feel free to grab a copy of AdBlock, AdBlock Plus, Ghostery, and/or Privacy Badger to do so!
  • Will we care they get blocked?
    • Not entirely. As mentioned, this is just an experiment to test something and if it doesn’t work out, then it doesn’t work out.

This experiment is not for making a few extra cents from any ads that show (although a few extra cents does go a long way with hosting costs), but rather a live trial and error to not only see how it all works, but to get a better grasp on how to properly implement such a thing should a future client have such a request for ads on their sites.
