This Blog used to be 100% Advertising free. I liked WordPress for this feature. No, that was a lie:
my few readers know what a greedy proletarian investor . I obviously always wished I could make a few extra dollars worth of Google adsense advertising with this Blog which is getting for some strange reason quite popular. WordPress does not allow advertising on WordPress blogs. Fine.
The truth is that, since I could not put Ads on my Blog, I could at least be very proud of Deminvest, the Adverstising-free blog.
And I was proud to be Ads free.
Unfortunately is not so anymore:
The cunning people who run WordPress have started inserting advertising of Barrons in many of my posts. They think they can fool me by calling those adversing: Possibly related posts: (automatically generated). What makes me angry is the fact that they try to fool me into believing it is not paid advertising. I can be fooled, but I still am an investor. I still recognize when somebody is making business on my back. I do recognize advertising sold on my Blog!
Here is a post. You’ll find advertising for the same funds I hate on the end.
Here is my my most read post. Look at “Possibly related posts: (automatically generated)”. There are 3 advertising, two from Barrons and one from Wall Street Journal.
No. They did not ask for permission.
No. They don’t share a cent of ad revenues with me.
Yes. It is the destiny of a proletarian investor to be fooled by the big guys!
P.S. I fond a good post by a fellow WordPress writer who is raising similar problems.
