Astute readers may have noticed a slight change in the AudioShocker over the weekend. No? Well, you clearly aren’t reading enough, but I’ll spell it out for you anyway. We finally started placing ads on the site. But wait, don’t the sidebars, headers, and front page all the look the same? Yup, they do. We decided to start slow by implementing what I have coined the ‘scrollpop’ ad unit.
Every few comments, you will now see a line that says “AudioShocker Shoutouts!”. If you mousewheel over it, or mouse through it, a small banner will reveal itself or ‘pop’ in. We aren’t trying to be tricky, malicious, or intrusive. We just want to try out some revenue possibilities and hopefully cover our costs for the site. Here is a little demo:
To my knowledge, we are really the only people doing this, and we’re interested in your feedback. I coded the whole shebang myself over the weekend and consider it a personal triumph. (and I will cut you if you try to steal it or pass it off as your own!)
