Click bait ads on DCP

Recommended Posts

This ad has been popping up on DCP recently.  If you click on it, there is nothing about an FBI warrant, but they eventually get around to peddling some ED concoction in rather lurid terms.  Is this something DCP wants to promote?

Of course not.

However, we do not select the adverts that Google Adsense presents in that space.  The ads are selected by Google using a number of methods, including your browser history.  For more info on how this works, Google Adsense provides this: https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/9713?hl=en

I have added the domain shown at the bottom of the ad to the block list, indicating to Adsense that we do not want adverts from that domain presented to our users. That's the only tool I have available to block 'offending' adverts from being shown in the space.

If you find others and can identify the URL associated with the advertiser, I'll be happy to block.

Hope this helps.
