So, you probably noticed that over the last month, I've been running Kontera context ads on SEO Scoop. Now, you'll notice that they are gone.

This experiment in advertising has come to its completion – and for this site – it was a failure. I was hesitant to even try it, but the sales rep promised big big bucks. She was wrong. Not that I blame her. I think she really expected it to be more, but it just wasn't. Let's face it. Some sites just aren't meant to make much money. SEO Scoop is one of those sites.

Today, I received an email from a friend of mine complaining about the ads, and stating that they really annoyed him. That was enough for me to decide to take them off. I was planning on giving them another couple of days at the most, but now is as good a time as any.

So goodbye to those annoying ads. Sorry for the inconvenience while I ran the test.
