Phasing out ads
by on Saturday, July 26, 2014  (2 comments)

Ads have been on HillRunner.com for a long time. Most of us have probably just grown used to them and don't even notice them. I had them around just to help cover costs and they served that purpose for a long time.

However, now with the coaching service offered, costs are covered. I think the ads take away from the site and the financial benefit just doesn't seem significant enough to make them worthwhile anymore. So I decided it's time to do away with them and save everyone's eyes from that annoying clutter.

It's possible that an ad or two will remain on select parts of the site but most of the site, if not all, will soon be ad free. I already took away the most frequently seen ads. It's possible that some of the ads will be replaced by promotions for the coaching service but, for the most part, they will simply be replaced by content that will be more meaningful to all of us.

I hope you appreciate this change and it helps make HillRunner.com a more friendly site to visit.

Oh good! I always wondered why one of the 5 foods you should never eat is a banana. Now I can enjoy my bananas without wondering why I shouldn't eat them :-)

That banana ad was so annoying and I couldn't get rid of it. Block the site that ad pointed to from appearing here and the same ad pops up pointing to another site.

Anyway, I hope you like the ad free (other than the treadmill chart for now at least) site. My reasons for doing away with the ads go well beyond the banana ad but I know that's one I'll be especially happy to see much less of.
