Double underscore pop-up links are annoying

Sites are now loading their text with double underscored pop-up links that open up ads. They are very annoying. This site uses such tactics. Even though it's own terms of use prohibit you the user from uploading ads, user responses are full of these links making it like trying to negotiate a mine field with your mouse to avoid opening these annoying pop-ups.

If you use Mozilla Firefox as your browser, you can download a free add-on called AdBlock at addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10 which will give you the options to add filters such as *vibrantmedia.com* the advertising annoyance on this site.

Why do these ads keeping popping up?


You can reduce (or eliminate) the occurrence of pop-up ads by setting an Option in your browser that "Blocks Pop-Up" ...
If you're using IE Explorer, click on "Tools" (top right corner of screen - tool bar), put your cursor on "Pop-Up Blocker" (in the drop down window) and click on "Pop-Up Blocker Setting". Then, at the bottom of the window, set the "Blocking Level" at HIGH - which blocks all pop-up from showing up on your screen.

You can do it for other browsers as well ... e.g. Mozilla Firefox ...
click on Open Menu (the 3 horizontal bar on top right corner), select Options (in the drop down window), select the "Content" tab ... and check of the box (on the top) that says Block Pop-Up's, and then close.

Often pop-up's show up because your activity (viewing, searching, etc.) on the browser is tracked. Yes you can turn off tracking too !
This tracking info is used by "ads spawning" processes/apps to select which ads is displayed on your computer. So, you can reduce the amount of ad's by deleting cookies (particularly for these ads programs) every time you're done and close your browser ... just like you remove your (browsing) history, temporary files, cache information, etc.

I have tried for 5 hours to try to get an ad on my webpage. I thought after I signed in that I could get a list of companies that I could look at and then copy and past the code onto my website. But...


Google adsense does not let you choose your ads. but instead they will send a bot(an indexing software) to your site and it will read your site and then it will choose the ads for you. if you want to get the relevant ads to your site you should provide keywords in the header in your site. for instance, if you want to have ads about games in your site you have to provide keywords saying the word 'games' in your sites header and plus, you have to have that same keyword in your sites body as well. only then the bot can realize you are asking ads about games and it will choose the ads about games to you and give you the code.

What are the requirements for google adsense to choose my site?


They don't choose you, you have to apply and ask for an account (based on your own site/Blogger.com blog). In order them to approve your request, your site (and every site you might put the Adsense code in the future) must follow their webmasters guidelines which are basically:
- Use the code in sites where the content is not about: Gambling, Hate, War, Hacking, Porn, Racism etc. - Don't use more then 3 ad units + 3 link units on the same page. - Don't mislead your audience to click on ads. - Don't click your own sites ads.
