I realize that ads help make this site free and I have always put up with them even when the ads take up 75% of the screen (frequently!).

But the Eggland's Best "articles" are a bit much. These are articles that are listed in the "What's New" section and look just like regular SP articles. I can earn SP at the end of them by clicking the “Get your sparkpoints button”. But these are different since the commenting has been turned off. They are blatant ads being disguised as articles and would still be there even if I upgraded to Premium.

Check out "6 Important Things to Verify Before Buying Eggs" (2/11/2020) and "Different Types of Eggs: Which is Right for You?" (2/10/2020). These aren't articles at all, just ads. Hope they understand that because of these "articles", I won't be purchasing these eggs. I'll purchase a different brand of omega enhanced eggs, thank you. And I will never upgrade to Premium if SP keeps it up. Why pay extra and get ads anyway?

I can ignore the ads along the sides and top. It's the pop-ups that also give me funny eye flashes. I am unable to use an Amazon Kindle, I see a flash every time I turn the page. (I know, weird) It does not happen when I use an ipad kindle app. Go figure, These pop up egg ads are disturbing to my eyes and intrusive.
I did get a laugh when I saw Eggland's Best eggs yesterday at the grocery store.

I use Firefox Ad-Blocker so I don't get the ads. I had problems with the way they tended to become intrusive and taking over the page, but the bigger issue was with the flashing ads causing nausea and migraines. They were worse on SP than virtually any other site I went to.

That's how I started this thread....I walk past them in the grocery store and make a face because of those pop-ups.

If it wasn't those eggs it would probably be something else. Oh well.

I'm super tired of the Eggland's ads. Actually makes me NOT want to buy their product! I use Safari and the ads keep popping up.

I just tried the pop-up blocker.
Apparently, if I log into spark enough times a day, it eventually stops popping up. I tried multiple logins today and it finally stopped.
Thanks so much for all the advice.

Here is the like I have tried to use....so let me know if anyone can do it:

Thanks for looking into this. So very annoying.

Browser:

Google Chrome is up to date
Version 79.0.3945.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I have no idea what incognito even is. I did a search on Google chrome settings and nothing by that name even came up. Did a further search and one must keep asking for it on google and it is only to have google not remember what you are searching. I can open my history and see all my spark history for today and yesterday, etc.

I allow cookies.

Actually, I rarely eat that brand eggs, only when my husband purchases them. It's the ad that has been popping up so very often for so very long. I rarely get annoyed by ads, just ignore them but this constant battering has been making me crazy.

Your site does NOT have the ads that actually cover text so you've got that going for you.

Thanks again.

Linda

Hi,

That really is not the way those ads should work. I checked with our ad manager who said you generally should only see that ad once per day. Would you mind answering a few questions so we can try to figure out why you are seeing that ad so much?

Which browser are you using, and what version is it?

Do you happen to be browsing in “incognito” mode?

Are your computer/browser settings preventing cookies from being written? Please visit this page for tips on enabling cookies for your specific browser: www.wikihow.com/Enable-Cookies-in-Your-Int

.

If you answer these questions our ad team will do some more checking.

I will NEVER buy another Eggland's egg product until they stop this blasted pop up advertising on Sparkpeople. Maybe every once in a while, but every single dang time I change the page? AAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH!
