    FastClick running pop behinds for pop up stoppers

    Just an FYI - you may want to deselect popstop from your Fastclick pop campaigns.

    Or they were duped by an unscrupulous advertiser?

    It isn't in their best interests to have an ad blocker in their rotation

    What annoys me about CJB.net is that their pop-unders are almost exclusively for pop-up/under blockers. Talk about hypocrites!

    Fastclick do some straneg things.

    Next it will be advertising banner blockers.

    BTW there is another campaign running by the same company that will take users to the same site so you may want to disable that as well (the second ad is for another piece of software).


    Did you also know that fastclick allow anyone to opt out of seeing there ads, stupid move really what woudl they do if 100% of people opted out.

    That's a little stupid. Without eyeballs, they have no revenue. Have to wonder about some people and what they are thinking.

    "That's a little stupid. Without eyeballs, they have no revenue. Have to wonder about some people and what they are thinking."

    The funny thing is I actually first found out on a non webmaster board, where it was posted as a way for people to stop pop under spam.

    The strange thing is I installe dit and it really did work all I could see was ad council defaults not evan on my own site did my own defaults show, so I could not evan get money fromt hem that way.

    I also seem to remember I used to see fast click pops anywya but never a banner, so it never worked for what people intend it to work for.
