Default Ad Blocking and Privacy Badger on jonnyGURU.com

I've added you guys to the whitelist of sites for the ad blocking extension that I'm using, as well as enabling the ad companies' cookies on Privacy Badger. Your once-beautiful, clean, orderly, neat and lightning-fast site has been mutated into a (not that bad, to be honest) wasteland of bright and potentially distracting ads.

But it's ok, I want to contribute in this way to keep the lights on here. :-) Do you guys get revenue for ads shown, or do I have to click on them?

Cheers,
GDI Lord

Thank you.

We have ads in lieu of begging for donations via Paypal... though begging may not be out of the question in the future.

As the Jon has stated, Thank you!

We've had ads on the site since 2006 that I know of. Sure we've added a few over the years. We do try to keep them PSU/PC related and clean at all times. We did try some textual links for a while but that didn't last long.

It's a pleasure guys, I've learnt a lot here, thank you! :-)

So do I have to click on the ads for you to get money, or is displaying them enough?

It works both ways. We get credit for impression (view) and click through.

If the ad entices you to click it, then by all means do so. Don't click it just to click it though.
