Search Engine Watch Forums Adds "Intrusive" Ads

Yesterday, Search Engine Watch Forums has changed the placement of the ads displayed on the site and forums. The ads used to be primarily on the left hand bar, in a box on the right side and a thin line at the top. I believe the forums pretty much had ads only on the left hand side, if any. That has changed, Search Engine Watch Forums has added ads.

Here is Search Engine Watch Forums before the ads:

Search Engine Watch Pre Ads

It takes about 400 pixels from top to bottom to get to content within a specific forum thread.

The new Search Engine Watch Forums with ads:

Search Engine Watch Forums

Here it takes about 650 pixels from top to bottom to get to the content within a specific forum thread.

Some folks don't mind the ads, saying; "I have a degree in ignoring most things, including the ads so I dont mind."

Others like Marcia, an Search Engine Watch Forums moderator dislikes them, saying; "very intrusive."

I dislike them as well, and I would pay to not see them. I am not sure if that is an option, but hopefully it will be an option.
