Infolinks Removed From The Blog

You've spoken, I've listened and can therefore announce that the Infolinks contextual advertising program has permanently been removed from the blog.

The testing period was initially for two weeks. However and with receiving 100% negative feedback regarding this program via the blog, email and Facebook, I've decided that this was adequate feedback to stop the testing and remove Infolinks.

I wasn't entirely sure if Infolinks would truly benefit my blog and this is the reason why I give you the opportunity to express your views regarding this program. It is and always will be my objective that the quality of the blog comes first, ads will always come second place. This blog was launched to provide readers such as yourself with good quality, useful content and not (and will never be) used solely as a money-making machine.

I am extremely happy with the feedback I've received and I want to thank everyone for taking the time to submit your views. One comment that grabbed my attention was the suggestion of putting a PayPal Donation Button on my blog to allow readers to donate. I think this is a great idea so I have implemented this feature on the sidebar.

Just a quick update: All online services have now been updated to the new domain. This means that my work is now complete and the blog is finally back to normal. Expect to see more of me on Bloggers Network and the continuation of the articles you've come to like, starting with my next post.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback...your views were greatly appreciated.

  1. They're actually a bit annoying sometimes. Whenever I read blogs, I always encounter them.
