Adverts on the site.
« on: April 03, 2020, 10:03:13 AM »
Hi john have you agreed to have loads of adverts on the enjoy kalkan website or has mine been corrupted. Every time I open the site now its full of adverts which is pretty rubbish. It often starts with an advert then some topic areas the advert then topic areas and so on. I don’t think this is enhancing the site in fact it may be putting people off. If this is something that is necessary is there a way of the individual turning them off. I have clicked on the x but it says about reporting this advert and I don’t wish to do that if it’s something you have agreed to. Thank you Ray.

Nope there should only be a couple of adverts as previously.

Welcome everyones feedback on this as certainly the site should not be littered with adverts, I hate sites that do that!!

Just opened the site and I’ve got marquee hire. Then herpotherm then face shields ads. It sucks. How do I get rid of them. I want to see enjoy kalkan not ads. Cheers. Ray

Thanks for the reply which now tells me it’s not my site that’s infected. I’m a bit paranoid at the moment about items from turkey as since I used the villas wifi. Since then I get 100s of spam a week which could a coincidence or not. I love the enjoy site and hope that this can be sorted or unfortunately I will possibly stop using it. I’m supposed to be in kalkan in September and again in October and really hope this is possible. Our next trip to Paris is early June which will not happen. If all goes well and we stay well we will be really needing to be in the lovely kalkan. Apart from us missing it kalkan business will be terribly hit. Keep well. Regards ray.

My spam box is full of different kinds of birds since using wifi last year in kalkan. They have some amusing names but don’t know the contents as I delete without reading. But just about as suggestive as you could imagine. 😎

Hi All,

I can certainly sympathise when it comes to spam, it does seem that using WiFi in Kalkan does guarantee a mailbox of junk for many years to come! I used to always depend on Vodafone but it looks from other threads they are withdrawing this from us.

As for the Ads on this site, I have submitted a support request with Google to find out what's happening as they shouldn't be as you are describing!

Jon

So the mystery is solved, Google changed to "Auto Ads" by default so they decided the best place to display them ignoring any of my other settings.

Auto Ads disabled, lets see what tomorrow brings :)

Just as a reminder to everyone, Ads bring in very small revenue and help to fund the website (I pay the difference) so please do try and promote EnjoyKalkan to others to keep this valuable resource alive

Thank Jon. That’s so much better. Although there are not many people using the site at the moment I generally take a look each day. Hopefully the new cctv system will still go live shortly but like everyone in business cashflow is king and many may have to draw on savings. If they have any. Our trip to Paris in June is gone but our trips to kalkan in September and October are hopefully still going to be possible. Many in the U.K. will be looking towards a holiday in kalkan especially after the trauma and worry of many who are fighting to keep there businesses alive or worse may have lost someone.  Although my daughter and family only live 4 miles away like everyone we miss seeing them and the kids. Their business is recruitment and of course no one is employing at the moment. They would be horrified to miss their kalkan holiday. It must be a daunting time for everyone in kalkan. Many of them like Hasan the owner of the Baharat who is a great friend has spent a lot of money in making structural improvements to his restaurant over winter ready for us all to enjoy. And the owners of villas updating their properties. Hopefully we will all get through this. Our own business is pretty much the same in agriculture. We are fertilising our fields today so everything has to keep going. My farm is more like a country park at the moment as people are walking through. Cycling through. Coming to see the horses constantly. to get some breathing space. Sorry to have gone off the topic but just taking about kalkan cheers me up. Keep going everyone and keep safe. Regards Ray
