Frequent Ohloh users will already notice a big change: bigger, more blatant ads. Implementing more ads has been on our todo list for a while, but I kept putting it of – until now.
Our beta frontend had a lot more ads and we got some feedback that some of them were too subtle – some ads were interspersed within the content too well.
I took that feedback at heart when adding them back now. They are more blatant now. Frankly I’m still trying to get used to the bright leaderboard at the top of most pages!
We’ll be running some ad-based experiments over the next few weeks so we’ll likely move the ad formats/positions. Meanwhile send any feeback to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have concerns or ideas to help us out on that front.
