Interesting Link On Team Bass Website

I was browsing this evening and clicked on a link to the Team Bass Website.  Once on the site, I decided to check out their Forums.  On the forum there was a link to "fishinghurts.org" and PETA website.  Now my question would be why would a Bass Club put an anti-fishing link on their website ???  If anyone is a member of that club....perhaps you could reply and tell me why.  That just puzzles me that a "tree hugging" organization like PETA would have a link on a Bass Clubs site.  Seeing this I would think twice about joining that club if I was looking for a club to join.  The only PETA I agree with is the "People for the Eating of Tasty Animals".....not the tree hugging anti's that are trying to take our hunting and fishing rights away from us.  Check it out http://ronhuntfish.proboards61.com  It is located at the top of the page on the left.  Could someone please explain this to me???

I just tried clicking on the link I provided and the link to the site I am talking about is gone.  Interesting.  Google handles the advertising box for that site.  It is well known that Google donates money to the anti's.  I experimented and found that if you go to the site from my link, that advertisement does not show up.  Go to the Team Bass site by writing it the address cell manually and then click on the forum link.  You should get the site to list up in the advertisements then.

Having suffered through the Google Adsense already, ad publishers have limited control over what shows up inside the Google ads boxes. The ads are generated by a program that looks at your web site and tries to show ads that match the content of your web site.

Companies that purchase ads do so based on keywords. The same keywords that are used to identify which ads to show on which web pages.

PETA knows this and is bidding on keywords that will get its 'ads' shown on fishing sites so anglers have a chance to read their studid message. They are devious in getting their links to show though.

There is a way to try to block certain ads through the Google settings, but I never tried it to see how well it worked. I don't know if you could successfully fully block the PETA ads or not through Google, but one should try. PETA has a number of web domains to spread their convoluted and unrealistic 'message.'

I doubt if Team Bass is wanting PETA's ads. Everytime you click on the ad, you do cost PETA money, but they get a lot of donations from equally misguided or misled people so I don't know that you could easily break them. Plus, if you click on a Google ad over and over, Google may suspend the account the clicks are coming from anyway like they did me.

As a member of Team Bass, I can guarantee we do not support PETA.  It is just a part of the "google ads" that help keep web page costs down.  I have seen that ad on many fishing forums lately.

ronhuntfish

Yes, I have been aware of this problem.  It is part of the drawback of having a free site provider.  I have been trying to figure out how to prevent this, but as everyone stated, I have no control over the ads that show. 

I am quite upset about this, and I am hoping to eliminate this problem.

Dan, can you send me an email regarding anything you know about blocking this?  The only sure way is to upgrade our website service and pay a fee so that they cannot add any adds at all.

Sorry to all of you who may have been offended by this add.  I'm pretty disgusted about this.

Well thanks for linking to the webiste first of all, and sorry for what you've found, them dirty buggers....  Ron does a greta job for us, managing the website, i'm sure you'll see nothing more of the kind...just more male enhancement advertisements and normal stuff like that ;D

How come there's not an ad like this: Do you want your wife (or spouse if this is offensive to the female members here) to let you go fishing whenever you want? Do you want her to get a 2nd job so you can fish more? Then click here Wife 2.0!

ronhunfish - I probably am not remembering well since I'm (personally) boycotting Google ads and haven't logged on in months. I thought there was a way to block certain things, but now that you mention it, it may only be available for a fee. I'll look next time I get a chance to refresh my memory. I just can't bring myself to put the ads back up only to have them arbitrarily take away the small amount you do build up with no real explanation. I don't trust them and I prefer to deal with people I trust who are fair to the business relationship.

I am glad that Team Bass has this viewpoint.   It may be worth the fee to keep that from showing up on the website, especially if you do not support their "way out in left field" viewpoint.  Like I said, I was just browsing the links to some of the forum members and saw that on the ad bar and was wondering.........WHAT THE *&*^%%%$&!!!!!

You don't rake in many bucks with the Google ads unless you have thousands of visitors a day.

I am looking into different options for out message forum.  This may take a little time, since I have little time.  I hope to come up with a solution by the end of Dec.

I would think (hope) that most people have enough sense to realize that a random google ad like this is not the view point of anyone who has any sense at all, let alone an organization that devotes so much of their time fishing (and hunting).


djkimmel

I'm waiting to see if Yahoo ads go live for everyone. Although I haven't been watching in a while so I don't know the status... or if they'll be much different.
