The art of online ads has along the growth of e-commerce grown from ‘calm ‘ to ‘ aggressive’…Classified ads website’s free postings seems to have gotten fed up for users because of their short validity and paid ads seems to also be getting more avoidance by many who still want free stuff on the shoulders of others..no matter what..
Yayra RadioTV has taken a silent survey and we have realized that some advertisers who want to advertise their products online have gone innovative….to us…this is theft…online robbery..in the name of internet.
This is what they do……
1.they visit your website and find where there is a platform for comments…
2.then instead of commenting on the topic..they write about their products and further provide hyper links to online pages that exhibits their products…where reader can click and be redirected to..
To us,this is a very intelligence and innovative way to run an ad on somebody’s website for free…..However,we think it is a kind of ‘online theft’ in the name of internet….using another person’s website that bills are paid to maintain online for your personal aims without authorization…free of charge..
below is a screen shot…The post was about ” Atta Mills was poisoned by Prez Mahama ‘ …The comments was talking about Ticketing and rubber bracelet…
Interestingly, these silent thieves,just don’t post on any story’s comments..They choose stories posted like three or four months back ..in order to avoid being notice by site administrators..This alone show how guilty they feel and how thievery they know what they are doing is….
The time has come for owners of website’s that has comments options to either allow these free ads seekers and online robbers to post ads about their products on comments that has nothing to do with it…or put all post comments on ‘moderation’ or install advance plugins that will take care of this theft once and for all..
