What's creeping me out is that the amazon.com adds are advertising books I was looking at on their site. :?

And they are realated to fish at all...

Ho ho... OK now for some clarification.

Look around this site and you will see ads that say "Ads by Google". Every time someone clicks on an actual ad link in one of these boxes, Google keeps track of it and pays me X number of cents.

However, the downside is that any website owner can just click away and make him or herself rich. Google is very good at sniffing this out, however, and takes this very seriously. So, while I welcome the sudden surge in ad clicks, I'm concerned that these might be false clicks because I'm going from something like 3 clicks per week to now around 15 per day (average for the past 3 days). That is really a HUGE jump.

If it's because this site has suddenly been promoted and more people are visiting and it's real traffic, then woohoo! I am happy. But if it's some disgruntled spammer who's trying to get me in trouble, then that's not good.

By the way, as you've noticed, there's zero spam these days because I'm manually approving registrations now, as well as having implemented textual confirmation in registrations, which has greatly reduced the number of new registrations.

Anyways, yeah, hope you are all enjoying the site, it's good to see a lot of healthy growth since I launched it...

Cheers...

As for the Amazon ads... it's some clever technology where it understands the books you've looked at, and tries to offer you related books. As an Amazon Affiliate, I don't directly get access to any of this data at all, so don't worry, rest assured your privacy is intact. All I do is plant a piece of code in the pages and the rest is automagically liaised with Amazon.

On the downsize, NOBODY has bought any books through these ads. Zero, zilch, nada. I'll leave them on for a while though and see what happens.

again i totaly agrre with ste.

hope its genuine traffic through the site.

must be hard to manually sift thought registration to pick genuine registrations. also i surpose if you dont come on for a week for whatever reason the site will not get any new members etc.

any way well done and good luck

Thanks, ste12000!

All you moderators deserve a big pat on the back too... tx for being patient and valiantly fighting off the spam posts during the Spambot Wars which we've just lived through.

Haha... not going to be blingingly rich from the ad income, but if this new clickrate keeps up, it could pay for the hobby and then some.

I'm all for a genuine online community and am very grateful for this site. I love you guys!!!
