I made it a point that with each update of koreanindie.com that I would be transparent about the changes.
Today is the soft rollout of ads.
These are the rules that I want to keep.
- No header, sidebar, or footer ads on the front page.
- If there are ever background ads on the front page, they must be relevant.
- Ads will exist on single post pages.
I think these simple rules will keep ads to a minimum while still allowing possible revenue to be earned. Since it’s a soft rollout, there’s a lot of experimentation involved. I’m trying to keep ad categories somewhat relevant, but I only have so much control. Though over time, more relevant ads should be displayed.
This test will run for a week to see how the ads function and I’ll be deciding the next steps afterwards.
I thank you again for your support and allowing these changes to help support the sustainability of koreanindie.com.
