Sounds like a pretty silly question, but I am trying to make ads or banner ads for my blog that adblockerplus would pick up on? In the past I would just make a jpeg banner and link it, but the ad blocker didn't block it and the number of ads resulted in too many back links to a single domain hurting my site.
The problem is, I have a blog that i use to push traffic to another site or mine. This would be like somebody operating tshirtblog.whatever and using it to send traffic to tshirtstore.whatever where people buy products. Before I had a ton of articles about certain tshirts and those articles would reference product pages on my store. BUT what I noticed was that I had too many links to my one store and it was bad SEO. Now I removed all those links but still want to encourage visitors to go to my store through a banner ad in the blog's sidebar.
I believe if Google knows it's an ad, there to make money, they don't punish the blog owner for it even if that banner is on the sidebar of every page?
So simply put, I want to make a banner. Normally I would just make a jpeg banner and link it as href= but Google sees that as x-number of backlinks to one domain. Not good. :(
I do know there are sites like buysellads that allow you to submit ads for blog owners to use and you can earn money from clicks, but that is kind of silly if it's my own site I'm sending traffic to. I guess my question is, does adblockerplus simply look for coding from sites like buysellads and other ad resources to block their content and/or is there something I can ad to my banners like specific coding so Google treads those banners as ads and not just normal back links?
