No, I’m not referring to the brisk sales of my new (and old) books on Amazon and elsewhere, but rather to a new feature of the main website: click-through ads. I’ve signed up with Google and ExpoActive to run “targeted” (Google) and more-or-less random (ExpoActive) ads on most pages of the site. I have little control over what ads show up when, but I hope that some visitors will find some of them interesting enough to click. Certainly the public interest ads for the Red Cross and the ASPCA, etc., (from which we make no money) are always worth investigating. Please don’t do any multiple clicking of the same ad, however, as these don’t count and annoy the advertisers.
Of course, if anyone wants to donate a few thousand dollars a year to keep the website ad-free, we’d be happy to hear from them!
