    Can you view my ads?

    Hi guys not sure if this request really belongs here, but we'll see. I have website that I built a few years ago that has a classifieds ads system that is built using ASP. When ever I use it works great, I have no issuses.

    Lately I have been receiving the odd complaint from visitors using the site not being able to view the ads. I have no idea how this is possible, the ads are just a link to an asp page that has a couple query strings to identify the ads. Here is a link to the site http://www.canadianaerialapplicators...fieds/main.asp any one with some ideas it would greatly be appriciated.

    Thanks guys. The only thing that I can think of is that the people that are coming to the site either aren't moving their mouse over the title of the ad or they are doing right and are expecting more information but cannot find it.

    I have tried troubleshooting this with people that are having the problem, but never am able to find where they are having issues, they don't answer my questions that ask to help find the problem.

    I see them perfectly.
    You cold underline the title to give them a better "link look".
    You are right, as a usability expert, there are a lot of users that donīt move the mouse, and only expect to find a link as usual (underlined text).This could be your problem.
