If this is the case, why would they do that?

Thanks for enlightening me!


Hi, I can't comment on this specific case, but sometimes websites ask to be taken off the whitelist again. This can be due to a variety of reasons, for example when they change ad formats, placements or size and don't want to be bound to the Acceptable Ads criteria anymore.

Adding in-feed text ads on Yahoo Answers.

Proposed filters:
Code: Select all
answers.yahoo.com#@##ya-center-rail > [id^="ya-q-"][id$="-textads"]
answers.yahoo.com#@#.dmRosMBAdBox
answers.yahoo.com#@#.dmRosMBAdBorder
answers.yahoo.com#@#div[id^="dmRosAdWrapper"]

https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20160731135239AAouISr

Advertising type:
Sponsored text ads below the question and between answers

Additional Technical Information:
None

Concerns:
Unlike other in-feed ads, the ad is not a separate feed item but is placed at the end of a feed item. Therefore the top unit may be perceived as too large.
