I don't see any ads here :)

They are at the top on most screens and really blend in with the background. Real easy to miss unless you are really hunting for them.

I don't see the ads either, they are blocked. But, still the site gets a few cents every time someone that can see them does click on them!

And if you can't see the ads, there are many other ways people can support the site, both financially and by content!

Hey Bruce....thanks for bringing that to my attention. I never knew about this site getting a financial ++ but I'm going to start clicking on an ad every time I log onto this website. You and brdad continue to wow us with useful information. I still think you're a cur, but now a little less mudgeon. ;)

Uh oh Bruce. Time to step up your game! :D

EMSDanel, it is fine to click occasionally but Google has protections in order to catch anyone clicking for the sake of clicking. If you repeatedly clicked on the ads it will trigger these protections and prevent any profit. I am not sure how much it takes to trigger it, but probably once a day or every few days is fine.

Oh, I agree. I don't click more than 3-4 times a week. But I wanted newer members to know that it helps the site.

DO NOT abuse Google. It's more powerful than Nancy Pelosi!

It's not about abusing Google, it's about abusing people who pay for that ads. Encouraging people to click on Google ads just to make a profit without any interest in product is a violation of Google Adsense terms and conditions.

Very true. I should have been clearer in my original comment that I was encouraging people to CLICK ON THE ADS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE because they usually provide excellent sources for good and services, especially for geocachers. I do not encourage people to CLICK ON THE ADS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE because they'll benefit us. I was merely reminding people that if they're going to CLICK ON THE ADS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE, this site would be a better place than some others that benefit people we don't even know.

:D:D

So even though I do click on the adds often and actually check the sites out and use them, we get no benefit because I use them too often.

I would like to know the exact limits and conditions of this restriction, so I can avoid it.

I don't think the numbers are posted, but this explains their policy:

Joe Bornstein - isn't he too classy to be involved with geocaching?

Joe's add was up this morning. But It looked like there was a new lawyer in town taking over...

I hope the ads here are related to items geocachers would like. I would not be likely to admit to clicking ads on many web sites. :p
