NUDE PHOTOS and Adbrite

The Single Saver


posts 689

I bet this title caught your attention!

I just thought I would put a warning out there for anyone who might be considering using Adbrite.  I have used them for over a year and for the most part I have been happy.  I got decent results from them and have made a decent rate.  But despite having my ads set to 'family friendly' I started getting a lot of ads for dating Russian girls, etc.  THE SINGLE SAVER IS NOT THAT KIND OF SITE!  My readers want to save money… not get into an expensive trans-Atlantic "relationship."  Geesh! 

I contacted Adbrite and they explained that somehow my settings had been changed and that is why I was getting all ads.  They quickly fixed the problem for me and all was well.

Until today!

I just checked my site and saw an Abrite ad for NUDE PHOTOS on my site!  And to make it worse, it was on my article regarding my paying off my car.  NOT COOL, ADBRITE… NOT COOL! 

So I just removed Adbrite from my sites.  I gave them a 2nd chance last Summer. They won't get a 3rd chance.  These types of ads could really give my site a very bad name!

If you use Adbrite, be sure to check your settings on a regular basis because apparently they just randomly change them on you when it suites them.  Oh, and Adbirte might not be suitable for anyone whose site has "single" in the name because they obviously have dirty minds.  Wink

I believe that Crystal had a similar experience with them, even after setting filters and contacting them. It is too bad that they still haven't gotten their act together!

Wow… I remember when I alerted Crystal to this there were photos of women with big boobs and stuff like that, but at least they still had some clothes on! Definitely was not safe for work. ;)

good tease but yeah I'd stay away from adbrite for those reasons, what kind of CPM are you seeing with them? better than adsense?

They've been doing this for years.  I removed them about two or three years ago for the same thing.  They ignore your settings and display what they want.  The CPM wasn't worth it either.

Kinda nuts.  Apologies from SF, as they are based right here.  No wonder why my friend quit there.  She said it was quite disorganized. 

I tried them looong time ago, and had similar shocking ad results.
