Has anyone else noticed that you will get ads based on searches you've done ? For example, after going into Brahmins website I will start seeing ads for the purses, etc that I have looked at on their site. Like I said in an earlier post, the only ads that bug me are the ones that get in my way and make me click that X to make it go away.

Agreed. There are ads and there are annoying ads. Funny thing is I keep getting ads for Craftsy, of which I'm already a customer.

The only ad(s) that get me irritated are the ones that pop up when I'm looking at recipes.
Large banner with an X that you have to touch to make it go away.
The problem?
You have to position that stupid X strategically so you aren't taken to another page and have to go back to the recipe you were trying to look at.
Annoying to say the least.

I agree - there has to be a way for the page to have advertising without the ads interfering with functionality. I really hate that I can't navigate around the page until all of the ads have loaded, and since each one moves and has animation, this can take a while. It's kind of to the point that I wonder if there is another website out there - or an option where I can remove the ads for a monthly fee. The site just doesn't work well with Chrome, and it might be time for a redesign.

To keep Sparkpeople free there has to be advertising. Here is a link to explain some, and how to report if there is one that is inappropriate.

When did all the advertisements take over? It seems half the site-page is taken up by them? Very distracting.
