Update on Advertisement


Here is a little update on advertisement for this web site. I have removed all the Google Adsense advertisements due to difficulties in changing my home address with them. But Google sets up a technical barrier when it comes to move address on the fact that Iceland and Denmark don’t use the same currency (yea, just silly. But I am considering forwarding this issue to the EU Commission as this is against EU law far as I can tell). I was also unable to setup a new account with my new home address due some rather odd message from Google Adsense.

As people did notice I was testing out Adbrite advertisements. But as it turns out there was some bad behaviour going on there that I as a web site owner do not approve of. So they got removed. But they where also not placing ads on this web site for unknown reasons.

Because of all this I have switched back to Amazon ads. Due to the fact that most of visitors on this web site come from Europe I am going to display ads from Amazon UK and Amazon DE (in process). For others the web store is good place for people to look for volcano related stuff to buy. The Web Store is currently work in progress, but U.S and Canada is going to be added soon on that web site.

I hope that people show me understanding in regards to this issue.

  1. Hey gotta pay the bills somehow Jon. Ads pay for geophones and gas to go and site them so once you get your advertising together (I also suggest local Icelandic ) I’ll click on a few every now and then.

    You have a commodity and science over there. Volcanoes that are erupting or that can be visited are great for the economy and bad in other ways. Its an offset. Icelandic Air would be another good advertiser along with any guides. Hell, I might just show up on your doorstep someday as well.

    If you take the “Weather Underground” thats run by Dr. Jeff Masters and what he takes in every click of the enter key, its the difference between being able to commercialize and fund his research and drive a Porche or drive a beat up Volvo thats 10 years old and having to write research grant proposals and have a lot of hope.

    You put them up, I will click them just out of support !

    1. Thanks!

      But with Amazon I only get paid when people buy something right away when they click on the banners or use the search box. So it just not enough (sadly) to click on the banners.

    1. i popped in there and took a look…
      i’m going to buy some of it, surprisingly.
