@brinked Let's compare the ads on blogcritics.org to the ads on slashfilm.com (which wasn't hit)
#ads on Blogcritics content page: 6 (not counting Amazon affiliate)
#ads on Slashfilm content page: 4
Both sites have ads mixed in to their content area. Both have ads above the fold.
If you mix in the Amazon affilliate links on Blogcritics, they do have a LOT more ads than Slashfilm. But the ads they do have are all positioned in pretty much the same places.
Both have really heavy non-content areas at the top though... and actually I'd say Slashfilm's non-content area at the top is a lot bigger than Blogcritics.
