I signed up for prime in part because I didn't want the ads any more. But on the front page, there's still one under the Slice ad (one was in favor of Keystone XL, FFS). And on individual articles I still get "From around the web" advertisements of shitty content. Is this happening for anyone else?
Right now on the iPad I'm seeing a Best Buy ad box right underneath the Walmart story. On the front page.
I get ads when using my IPad, but not on my PC. I must say how it really changes the user experience when you go from one to the other.
My favorite headline from one of those was something along the lines of.
The 10 Ugliest Members of the Royal Family.
I am still getting the broken flash content.
I use Google chrome on Windows and Mac. This site crashes the worlds most popular browser on both the main platforms repeatedly.
...or 10 worst celebrity botched plastic surgeries
8 celebrities who smoke that will surprise you.
Sometimes I do. The first couple of times I thought it was because I wasn't signed in, so I had to double check. Are we supposed to see some ads as Prime members?
I'm not sure, but I think that the ad count for Prime members is greatly reduced, but not completely eliminated.
I hate to say it but I did click on that one...lol...and my GOD I hope some of them sued for malpractice
Yes. There are at least 2 ads on every page, a lot more than that on some.
A related question - does TPM get any revenue from the ads ? Does the revenue increase (to TPM) by my clicking on it ?
I got this one today - I imagine targeting me for the inverse of my browsing history (as someone who needs convincing), not a TPM choice, but I can't even say I know that for sure. I can ignore it, but if it generates extra revenue for TPM, I'll click on it just to deprive the advertiser of the cash and send it to TPM - just desserts. But I'd also enjoy taking a bite out of the advertisers budget just for the sake of making them pay a few cents to not convince me of anything...
Anyone aware of the details ?
Don't know who they have serving adds but typically the publisher and advertiser chose whether they want to do cost-per-click or cost-per-impression. Can't hurt to click it and cost them some marginal bandwidth and possibly money.
