Search - "adsense"
Random Uncle: So what do you do?
Me: Uncle, I'm a dev at xyz company.
RU: Ah so what do they do
Me: Uncle we work in the internet advertising business, kind of like AdSense
RU: So you basically spam the web?
Me: Yes :/10
Wrote a blog post
Got 1200 pageviews
Checked adsense acc $0.00
Then realised my ads are not working13
It blows my mind that Google, advertisers, and a lot of companies seem to not understand the concept of a need fulfilled.
Google news: If you notify me of an article, and then I click on that notification, you can assume I read it. And you can also assume that I don't wish to read it again 2hrs later! So stop notifying me!!!
Amazon, AdSense, Facebook, everyone else: just because I bought new headphones, doesn't mean I wanna see ads for headphones. Actually it means the exact opposite. I don't want new headphones. I literally just bought some. And I especially don't want the exact same ones. I already have them.
Somehow, the targeted ads are worse than random. That's annoying.
How is this hard?11
So I tried to set up Google AdSense on my website to show ads and earn some $... Next day AdSense console tells me that they've found "Adult: Sexual content" on my site. Like, WTF? There was nothing of such sort.8
Nice to see all my new app's advertisement stats go up :)
Pageviews: 1316 (+41%)
Impressions: 1142 (+24%)
Clicks: 7 (+500%)
Except the only one that matters :(
estimated revenue: €0.03 (-25%)
Fuck you Admob!5
My adSense account got terminated.
Reason: No f***ing idea
Never ever used any unfair means , still. All my hardwork towards my earning lost.
My appeal to reactivate rejected.
I am really depressed.
What should i do?8
What do you guys think about coinhive vs ads? Opt-in coinhive? Non-intrusive ads on the side? Which would you prefer?4
Whoever created the google adsense/admob report api and its documentation : choke on my dick and die you fucking asshole.
Okay, I try not to swear even when I am frustrated and I’ve had it up to my neck with a certain issue; it’s my personal ideal, and I have my reasons - I also have my ways of venting anger.
I searched for bootstrap on Google just once. Since then, I’ve just been using the actual website to get where I need to. Now, at the beginning of every YouTube video I watch, I get a Udemy ad asking me to enroll into the Bootstrap class. I use Adblock (I know it doesn’t protect me from all their ad scripts) but seriously, can they please tone down on the aggressive ads.
It’s so infuriating. If I have clicked the ad link to be redirected to Udemy, perhaps your AdSense should understand that I don’t want to learn Bootstrap from Udemy. If I see one more f$&@?!#g Udemy web development ad... I might just make it my mission to become a l337 h4x0r and wreck Google. Hehe
Now that that’s out, thanks for reading.6
Damn Google, Damn Google Play, Damn Adsense, Damn Admob...
So finaly uploaded my first app to the Playstore. took 5 minutes to make, 25 to ad an Admob module, and a day to get the ad to show...
Now I have to wait 6 hours for my new id (cause I chose the wrong kind of ad) to show and know If it will show on the App...
Luckly The App only has one download so far... mine lol4
Well, that's a lovely youtube ad, if I ever saw one
XML Parsing Error: no root element found
Line Number 1, Column 1:
By the looks of it, it may have been an ad for monster.com .
Task on freelancer : There are (too) many adblocker detection plugins. I want you to select one, test it at your local development environment (we will not provide) that it does the following:
- reliably discovers an AdBlocker
- does not interfere with regular ad serving (AdSense) if no AdBlocker is installed at user's browser
****- shows alternate banners (coming from our servers, so they look like regular pictures instead) even when AdBlocker is active *******
OKAY Now reality was that pre thought, pondered by PM ?
anyway adblocks seems doing Acceptable ads* which might be payed for ;)1
I have an only HTML(CSS and JS) app. I want to put it in Play Store. How?
I saw somewhere Phonegap can convert HTML to apk, but if I do it, will it work well?
I mean, if I want to put google ads or any other ads can I choose where to put them?9
As the winter months approach I've been thinking about freelancing. I decided to setup a website( jQuery!) with my games( unity, unreal all that shizzle). However what are some tips on getting out there with the website? Should I AdSense? Or should I go and advertise on Reddit( post on subreddits). Or contact peeps directly asking if they need my services( how do I know who 🤔). Or am I missing something?
Please tell me in the comments below
I am so fucking done with Webstekker. This is one bad fucked up webhosting company in The Netherlands. In the past we had so many issues: managed hosting websites getting hacked (you can brute force.ftp etc they don't monitor anything), not restoring db views after they migrate a db server, week down time because they fucked something up etc. Last 2 years were ok but today I discovered that one of my money making adsense websites is running on a cms database from another website!! What the fuck?!! I haven't touched that site for at least 2 years and it was running fine.
No Webstekker I don't want to check all of ny websites every day to see if everything works properly. I want to trust you to do a proper managed hosting job. But you retards have proven to be incapable over and over again.
That said, anyone here can recommend a good, solid, trustable Dutch webhosting company for asp.net hosting on Windows?
I do run other sites on VPS but that is much more work for me and don't want to manage all (small) websites myself but unstead rely on a solid company with competent people to do that for me.
