I like sharing links on Twitter, I’ve been trying to find a good way of doing that without overloading people, and think I’ve found the solution in Buffer App, which allows me to buffer my tweets. As a result of that, I’m tweeting a lot more links. What I find though, is that I’m reading a lot of articles that I like, but which I wouldn’t want to share, not because of the content, but because they’re so surrounded by links.
A good example is this post by Ann Smarty on the MakeUseOf blog. It’s a good post that could have pointed many readers at 2 nice addons, but I’m hesitant to share it, because of the ridiculous ads. I don’t like in-content ads, but I can live with one of them. Having 3 of them though, 1 annoyingly situated just below the title so I had to search for the intro, is just too much and bordering on the plain spammy.
So, when you’re adding ads to your site, consider this: they might make me money, but do they prevent me from making more money? If so, don’t add those ads!
