Help a Helpless Blogger! - Help me catch pesky pop up ads in this blog!

Pesky Pop-up Ads or Just somebody not happy with my blog? Please help me find out.

I just received a warning from Entrecard saying I have to make sure I don't have pop-up ads in my blog. I don't notice any pop-ups myself when I access my own blog. However, I am not ruling out the possibility that there may indeed be pop-ups that selectively appear depending on where the reader's ip address is. I know for a fact that Chikita ads do such things. I've gotten rid of my chitika ads months ago because of this. I also have just recently changed my template. But still, I have no way of knowing if pop up ads are still on this blog unless people catches my attention to it. And today, Entrecard sent me this stern email warning!

Add sender to Contacts

Your account 'Traders' Hub' on has been warned. The administrator provided the following message:

Please make sure blog does not contain popup ads - thanks!

Please contact if you have any questions regarding this warning.

PLEASE NOTE: You are expected to resolve this issue promptly. Failure to do so will result in the removal
of your Entrecard account.

So I thought of putting up this Entrecard contest  to get the help of Entrecard droppers who visits my blog. The contest rules are simple. The one who can help me catch the pop up or pop-ups wins 3,000 EC's The firsst one who reports a unique pop-up ad wins and there can be more than 1 winner depending on how many pop ups exists. If you notice no pop-ups please leave a comment on this post just the same, saying you did not notice any pop ups, and you will automatically receive 50 EC's from me. (Your comment will let me know if there indeed exists pop up ads in this blog or not!) If it turns out that there are no pop-ups and nobody wins the 3,000 ec's, I will electronically raffle off the prize among the commenters to this post - with 1,500 ec's going to the first placer, 1,000 ec's to the second placer, and 500 ec's to the third placer. If indeed, there is/are pop up ad/s, I will give an additional 3,000 ec's to whoever can give me a suggestion that will lead to the elimination of the said ad. You may view the page source of this blog or I can email you the html of this site upon request. Contest will run from today March 30, 2009 till April 15, 2009. I will be announcing the winners a blog post on April 16, 2009.  Happy blogging!

Note: The image you see at the bottom right of my site is not a pop-up ad but a static image which I regularly change everytime I have a new post I want my visitors to take note of!

  1. Hi

    They might be talking about the TeleCheck ad on the bottom right of your site

  2. Hi! Just wanted to let you know, I have not encountered any pop-ups.

  3. hi! i don't see any popup.

  4. The only ad I have seen is the one in the corner, but someone may have reported it as a popup. If I were you I would contact someone at Entrecard and see if that was the problem and ask if it's against TOS.

  5. Hello “big daddy Richard”,

    As a money fanatic & forex follower myself I came across your blog a little while ago...I read some very interesting and great articles!

    So I have a little offer for you....

    The company I work for would like to pay you to put a small text link to a credit card site on your site (footer or somewhere). I see you have other deals already and would love to join them on the same better terms?!

    The website is called and we will be launching a new fantastic looking credit card review and comparison service which is free to our customers; let me know your thoughts.

    So let the bartering begin??!

    Oh and keep up the great work!

  6. Remove all the unnecessary things in your sidebar. You have too many things in your sidebar so probably one of them is the culprit.

  7. I tried to leave a comment a couple days ago... I see it's working now! No pop ups that I can see!

    No pop-up encountered. Everything looks fine.
