As you know from this blog, the fat one doesn’t care for the boycott of the Sun – in fact he supports the rag. Anyone complaining is sneered at by Duncan and some of his loyal arselicks.
He realises now, belatedly, that perhaps this isn’t the best policy to practice. In the following post he talks about Google ads and how they are displayed based on the content of that page or of the site in general. As a result it’s feasible for ads to appear that he might not like. He can stop them, but not until he knows they have started to appear. As far as I am aware this is true – but what’s his excuse for the Sun hat, the using of Sun headlines, the use of Sun “exclusives”, the laughter and snidy comments at anyone who complains?
The good thing about Google ads is that anyone can sign up to be an advertiser and as an advertiser you can even specify which sites you’d prefer to see your ads appear on. Maybe we should set ourselves up as advertisers…

We’ve noticed that some Google Ads that are not appropriate to be displayed on KOPTALK website have been appearing on koptalk.com
The Manchester United credit card
The Chelsea credit card
The Sun online (football section)
We can’t stop ads unless we see them appearing first. In other words, we don’t know what ads will appear until we seem them first because Google has control of what is served. It is only after ads are appearing that we can block them.
Google detect words that are on the page in question to display what they think are relevant adverts. For example if a page on the site makes references to investment, it is likely that Google will serve ads that link to investment related websites (finance).
Other ad serving agencies that we use also automatically include advertisers so it is only when ads appear can we decide what to block. It would be possible for example for The Sun newspaper to start delivering ads on KOPTALK without our prior knowledge. This has actually happened once before. As soon as we saw them we naturally pulled them but the kiddies that don’t like KOPTALK (or moi) naturally try to use such incidents to criticise the site.
If you ever see any ads appearing that you think shouldn’t be there, contact me using the Contact Us link on the top of the koptalk.coN website and I will take a look for you and pull them down if I agree with you.
I suppose he’s calling us “kiddies”. He wishes we were, because we’d have got bored by now.
Let’s see how good he is at responding to complaints about the ads being shown. Not all of the ads are served by Google, and some of them are chosen by him personally – will he agree to those being removed? He used to say his site was visited by “kiddies” a lot of the time and went mad at anyone who posted anything even slightly of an adult nature. This was quite a good policy because a lot of people read his site from their places of work and so it meant the site was pretty much “safe for work”. Not any more. Someone’s complained about this, but will he act?

Not sure if i’m in the right place or not, apologies if so, but the adult friend finder add is making this site very very difficult to read in work. Anyone who passes sees it immediately. Can anything be done about it. It has been there for weeks now.

How many clicks, MP?
Somehow we don’t see this thread surviving for long.
Meanwhile he’s also got plans to try other ways of getting some visitors. He’s setting up (yet) another website. He says it’s using the same software as his .coN website and that it will look just like his .org forums. Let’s hope he’s got the licences sorted for it. We’ll keep an eye out for it.

I’ve just registered a new domain this evening for a mini site that will list details of the present squad and a wealth of information relating to each player.
Every player will have their own profile and a dedicated news section of their own along with photographs and so on.
The mini site will be in this format style as an extension of the koptalk.com website. So for player profiles we will link to the new mini site.
It will look just like these forums. It will be more for reference than anything.
I hope you like it. It should go live this week if I get time.
If you get time? You’re supposed to be writing that book and dealing with support enquiries – do you realise how many people you’ve locked out even though they’ve paid?
Any ideas what domain he’s registered? We’ll find out soon enough, but we’re guessing at one of these –
As well as guessing that, maybe you’d also like to guess at where he’s going to steal the content from. Our bet is he’s already had Steve cutting and pasting from the official site.
