MadTV: The journal

Adverts
12/01/2005
Well MadTV has made its first tentative step into the world of advertising. If you look under the navigation you'll see a pair of MadTV colour co-ordinated google adverts. We are unsure about the new development and this is very much an experiment. One half of the MadTV board is claiming that this is a "sell out", the other half is saying "shut up, hosting costs money." If you have any feelings on the subject give me a shout.

These ads may stay or they may go...

Google had to go out on a limb codewise to idiot-proof adsense - and consequently, the javascript that is used is unruly. Does anyone else notice the bounce when scrolling?
I do however enjoy the fact that both ads are for curry. It is a mitigating factor.

Bounce? I find myself encouraging them - "Keep up there, little fellers, keep up!" But Josh is right as usual; if we have to have ads, let them be for curry! Just might follow up on the Indian curry one myself...

I can't see that effect for some reason Josh but I have noticed it on Google adwords elsewhere. I always thought it was a frames thing, now I know its not. I love that you can customise the colours of these ads...

Did you install that BHO that tells you which ads a page would recieve? I think it is installed in the rightclick context menu.

BHO? I'm very new to this advertising thing but I did see something to do with ad content in the adwords site menu somewhere. I thought that google's indexing of a page changed the content of the ads?

Nah Browser Helper Object - There is one that google offers that lets you preview what any page you surf to would have as ads. BHO's are more often than not spyware, but I trust google for some reason.

What is this, a library? But I notice that one of the ads is now for Mad TV. Now there's targeted advertising for you!

I don't make a lot of money from AdSense, but ANY money is better than no money, I suppose. I've made about $20 in the 5 months I've been running them, which is enough to pay for a couple of month's worth of hosting. In fact, I make more money from content-based Amazon links.

I've been quite impressed at Google's ability to serve relevant ads, although most weblogs are bound to get lots of blog-related stuff. If anything, it demonstrates how important it is for blog content to be rich and unique, rather than generic.

Dude. You should add something to convert newline characters into line breaks - all the paragraphs in my comment are missing. Also, bake a cookie for my details so that I don't have to keep typing them in. Oh, and I see the "wobbly ads" on my WinXP/Firefox setup too. I've never seen that before.
Date Added: 19/01/2005

Mad
Oops. Caught out. I've been meaning to do something about line breaks etc for ages Simon; just a question of finding the time. In the interim you're more than welcome to use HTML in your posts, just remember each comment is inside a set of paragraph tags. As for the cookies... um... would you believe I've never done cookies before? So I've been putting it off. *Underscores cookies on his to-do list*

I have to concur :>
I do believe that the wobble is the result of the static background requiring a complete repaint of the screen for every increment of scroll; the javascript takes a fraction of a second longer to document.write.

A tad annoying, but mooney is mooney :>

Thanks a lot guys, I'm now completely obsessed by Google ads "bouncing". Every page I go to that has Google ads, I spend at least a minute working the scroll bars to check for bounce. End conclusion? They all bounce to a greater or lesser degree and you may well be right Josh; the static background seems to exasperate the effect.Well tough, I really like my background and it's not changing for Google adsense.

Or you could shitcan the adsense and tough out the
5 quid a month, eh?
A joke, not a heartfelt suggestion. :>

I believe the ads are no longer visible. Probably, you have decided to take them out.
