The one thing I don't like is the slow ads as they come up just as I click a link and it takes me to another site.

This seems to happen when I am on a forum just as I want to reply to a question. I thought at first it was just my machine slowing down but it is only on the forums.

Hi Coach Jen,

I think you're right...I've been looking at work-from-home jobs, and the site that came up with the coupons is for ShopAtHome.com. Can't believe I didn't catch that, as I'm more internet-savvy than that...I think I'm just having kind of an off day. Sorry about that. I'll clear out my browser history and see if that makes a difference.

Thanks for the feedback. A lot of our ads are run through Google's ad service, so if you've done any recent internet searches for certain products, those might show up on your pages. For instance, if I search for running shoes on other sites, then I'll start seeing more ads for running gear on my SP pages.

I'll pass along your comments to our ad team.

Thanks,

Coach Jen

I absolutely appreciate the fact that this site is free, and understand that ads are one of the ways to keep it as such...but I REALLY could do without the ads that are popping up coupons for Arby's, Panera and Red Robin.
