So I've been using POF on and off for a while now and recently started seeing full on nude ads, is this something you intended or are your advertisers slipping them in on you?

POF uses Google adsense, it does not place it's own ads - download AdBlock, it stops all that junk dead in the water.

Yes and using google adsense allows the site to tailor its huge database of rotating advertisements based not only on your personal demographics but on whatever you have been looking at when you weren't here.

I'm not seeing nude ads and I don't have an ad blocker. I think it's discrimination - where the heck are my nude ads ?

Well Op I can't say I envy you for having random nudity showing up I have had not of the sort without using an ad blocker. I get plenty of ads with scantily clad women almost falling out of thier tops but that is not much different from many pictures I see on womens profiles on this site - the women in the ads just tend to be younger and better looking than most of the women who show up in random views on POF for me.

You know the situation is dire when even the nude ads don't show up at your house. Sigh.

This is why multi level gerbil cages are showing up in ads. Sometimes it can be a good thing especially since what I am looking for cannot be bought here in Canada. The cages sold here have plastic levels, ramps and enrichment which is so frustrating because if a rodent ingests a piece of plastic it can cause obstruction and death.

Oh....the second part of the above quote took me five minutes to 'get' since I was going to write, "maybe the op was doing searches on nude women". Gee...am I slow.

Google ad sense can also be configured not to show certain type of ads or to promote other ads. I only go to two singles sites, this one and ok cupid but I have never seen a ad on this site for anything other than singles sites.

I don't do searches for topless women, but I have seen 2 ads so far with that. Seeing as PoF has a rule against uploading nude pictures, I find it funny they would allow their own ads to show it. I have cleared history, cookies, and cash settings on my browser and now I see these ads. So this is a more random and less targeted ad, more specific to my PoF profile as opposed to what google thinks I am looking for, other wise I would see ads for Sound equipment and photography equipment and supplies.

It's not the fact that the ads are nude.. it's the fact they wont let people be nude on here............ Jk...

But yeah it is kinda bad if your on a public computer ,such as at school, and boobs pop up. Some public pc's you cannot download adblock on. Grant it you could upgrade to premium membership but really why.......

I have used google ads before and they do give the host the opportunity to block types of ads and ads from a certain domain. It might be something from what people look at off of this site but I don't think that relieves pof from the fact that there is something coming through the site that they don't even allow their own users to post.

So basically what I'm gather from all of this is that pof must make more money by running sluttier (didn't know that was a word) ads. I've used google ad-sense before from various online magazines that I write for and I've never had slutty ads appear on my articles. I guess if you don't want slutty ads use a different dating site. (kind of ironic that a supposed "Christian" dating site would have ads like that).

For those at work or using public computers try . It's free, and in many ways better then pof. I've had much more luck on that site then this one.

From as much money as your making from ads, how you considered trying to hire out for the approval of ads...I know Mturk has it where you can quiet literally pay people less the dirt. I've used that site and approved ads for near free. Usually you approve or deny around 10 ads for a penny or two.

I just saw my first full frontal nudity ad in here.
It was much too small a thumbnail to get excited over.
But still...gave me a chuckle all the same.

It was in this ad:
Single & 50?
Join Now to meet girls from Texas interested 50 Guys like you!

And I gotta tell ya, I am concerned that there are
all these young naked women in Texas just yearning to meet me.
and yet they obviously cannot afford clothes.

Maybe this site can take donations to send them something to wear.
I certainly couldn't meet one in Dennys with her looking like that.
poor darlin.

:-P

I just got a thumbnail today with one of those same poor girls in B.C preferring 54 yr olds - go figure... I wonder if they will catch on and starting asking for guys to help these desperate souls before winter sets in :}

I am sure the site owner would be generous enough to provide enough for a shopping spree at the Sally Anne or Valu Village for these poor girls.

If the site owner does not want nudity on his site he can do the filtering and reporting on his own IMO.

I am getting them too..

So, I ask myself , why stay on PoF where all these frumpy fully clothed women DONT want to meet me, when I can pay a small fee to these new sites with hords of cute naked women who cant wait to meet me...

Like, I am gonna whip my visa card out now!!!

I started getting this to today. Hopefully adsense works for me. I really dislike pornography and sleezy/slutty woman. Sorry if anyone is offended by those words but thats my opinion.

Can't wait to get rid of all those other adds telling me theres woman in Russia for country jump weddings. :|

I get adds for tummy fat --

no nudes...

Do you think it has anything to do with google looking at your history?

I haven't searched for tummy fat solutions, but, I am 42 -- and that is common.

Use an add blocker and avoid the fuss---

I think it's just showing how bad POF has become and how most of the people on here are here for hookups and not dating anymore. This site's gone down hill quick in the last yr and a half. Get in one music video and things go all to shit.

And has anyone else noticed that the ads only show up late night, so it's not like the ads are "sneaking by" like they are claiming because they only show up(for me at-least) certain times of the days so they know which ads contain nudity they just like the money....... Come on Marcus just be honest with us........ you need money we all do ... revert the code back to the way it was before you started charging to see when people view messages, or see when people were last online and maybe people will come back and you'll get more money.

Another excellent tool for blocking those ads is the use of a "hosts" file.
