EDIT: This first post can now contain link for donations, as people are asking for it who can't see it in mobile view on the homepage.

I've been clicking on the adverts too. Does this bring in revenue for the site?

Yeah views are known as impressions. They don’t pay. It’s just an indicator of how many times ads have been displayed. If you’ve got a high impressions figure but low CTR (click through rate) then you’re basically showing ads for free nobody is clicking.

You want folk to click through to some of the ads, that’s when whatever value was placed on the ads gets credited, usually anything from 2p to 20p.

Last couple days has been around 70p per day which helps loads.

It means they suspect those running the site are clicking ads deliberately to generate revenue and so they’ve stopped serving ads.

It should fix itself, well see.

Thanks for your donation George. Every donation really does keep this place up.

The ads don’t come close to covering costs so much appreciated.

Yeah, trickled back in slowly a couple weeks ago. Now doing roughly between 20p and 50p per day, every little helps.  :glad:

Maybe that’s why lol

Google figured out the false clicks and we got blacklisted for a few weeks.

There’s some running again now but it’s slow going.
