A few months ago some of my favorite websites have gone down the drain and have succumbed to infesting with their posts with paid advertising (and 100% of them are for Pay Per Post.com). I admit that I joined in on the fun, but since I joined ppp.com, I have only made four posts for them, ever. And yes I did get paid $27.00.) But the point is not to talk about how the company is legit.
I’m tired of going to a website and reading about how I should check out this awesome site for great cellphone deals, or that I should make a zwinky because it helps pass the time. The big give away, is that the links will have the same keywords, and they don’t point to the index. One site I used to love to go to all the time, was maybesomeday.org, but now I don’t even look at the website, and I barely even notice new posts in the feed I have set up for it. Sorry Klumsi, but most of your posts bore the piss out of me simply because YOU aren’t truly posting for fun, you’re posting to make an extra buck.
I recently went to jenn.nu since I was just clicking links for sites to visit, and the moment I saw her first post for HDMI cables I wanted to scream. Then you’ll see every other post is for pay per post as well.
Though I think people are starting to realize how much their website suffers when majority of their posts consist of paid adverts. Samantha‘s website, two-59.org, finally decided to change from posting to earn an extra buck, to actually posting what she wants. For awhile, Krissy.nu was the exact same, to the point where I never visited, nor did I read entries that were created. Though now I just read her posts through pageflakes, because I hate dealing with the constant image/text link ads thrown up all over the place.
Hopefully people will realize how much this effects their sites and somehow create a separate website so that regular [real] viewers don’t have to put up with paid-for-opinions. Either that or use the wordpress functions to hide a category from being displayed.
