Ok here's the scoop. We're stuck with the Kontera Ads (inter-text ads that everyone apparently hates for slowing down their browsing) for a few more months. We need to start generating clicks on these so that we can fulfill our contract and move on to something else. So, if you're sick of them, the sooner we fulfill our clicks, the sooner they can go away.

At the rate we're going, it will be another 4 - 6 months because the CPC (Cost Per click) is extremely low on Kontera Ads and quite frankly, I'm not happy with the results we've seen. We've basically sold our souls to the devil and now we're hoping to get it back with some support from our community.

Are the Kontera ads the ones associated with the double underlined links? Are those what you would like to get more action on?
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Yes, its the double underline links inside the main body of the forums.

Please don't abuse it though. Just be responsible. They can detect if you are "spam clicking" like a whole bunch of clicks in a row.

actually it's a single lined linkie until you hover over it then it turns into a double lined linkie and a little popup caption ad pops up. they are based on keywords throughout.. well, i've seen them virtually everywhere, sprinkled throughout posts. for instance, in your own post the word "firefox" was turned into an ad for me (i clicked it, btw [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":smile:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"smile.gif\" /] )
