Edit: removed all ads from geeks are sexy until the ad company resolves the issue. If you’re still getting problems, be sure to let me know.
Edit 2: Yep, it fixed the issue. I’ll Keep them off until I can resolve this. In the meantime, if you want to help, you can always do your holiday shopping @ Amazon.com through this link! ;)
Starting 2 or 3 days ago, an ad on Geeks are Sexy has started redirecting a very small percentage (less than 1%) of U.S. and U.K. users to another site that tries to sell a fake virus scanner to people. The reason I need help is that, being in Canada, I cannot replicate the issue, and my ad network, which is in the US, can’t either since they can’t track the ad. So if you’ve gotten one of those redirect, or if you get it again, I’d need a “firebug” report about what happened. I know it’s lot to ask from you guys, but I’ll send a free t-shirt to the person who can help me track this. I’m kind of desperate right now because this site is how I make a living, and if remove my ads, my revenue drops to almost 0. Needless to say that with 3 kids, that’s kind of a bad idea right now.
Please note that this firebug report will only be valid if you get the redirect.
Please send your report along with any details (screenshots, etc…) you can offer to: [email protected]
Thank you for your help!
