Occasionally I hit some bumps trying to navigate the SS Panties through the waters of the business world, and I hit a doozy last Christmas. I discovered a company that scores sites based on content, and that score can have a severe impact on ad revenue. I’ve documented my adventure in this article: https://medium.com/p/3f559a96e166
While we’ve come out the other end OK, this is a problem that can still be affecting other artists out there that use banner ads to generate revenue.
My intent isn’t to bring out the pitchforks against these guys, but to bring attention to their practices in the hopes of increasing the transparency of their organization (e.g. having a better appeal process).
So take a look, and share the article! Hopefully it’ll help someone out there.
P.S. You guys rock.
