All of my regular readers need to be giving thanks to Donncha Almighty for creating the new Friends Don’t Let Friends See Adverts plugin!
Donncha told me how he was selectively filtering ads so that he didn’t show them to his regular readers, and I was so intrigued I kept asking him how to do it. Well, he went one step further and wrote a plugin to make it all that much simpler for PHP hacks like me!
So, if you aren’t seeing ads today it’s all Donncha’s doing. And he’s a regular reader here so feel free to thank him in the comments!
PS – If you are seeing ads, they’ll go away if you do one of the following:
- Register and login.
- Leave a comment.
- Very soon… Read them within the first 5 days of being published (give me a day or two and I’ll get this fixed).
- Use your Del.icio.us bookmarks to visit.
This means that the site will basically be entirely supported by advertising from transient visitors going forward. This would include random search engine visitors, Diggers, and other sites referring traffic.
If anyone has suggestions for improvement please let me know. And in a week or two after I gather sufficient data on how these changes impact revenues I’ll post a complete write up with all the details.
