    I've heard back from Jemm Media and here's what they said:

    While our ad server determines your regional traffic it will connect it to relevant campaigns we have in that area, it will also attach more relevant campaigns over time. I would keep the ads running for now and they will improve.
    I'm still seeing mostly Google Text Ads with the occasional banner ad, but I'll give it a month and see how we go. As this company is based in the UK, our UK users should be seeing more banner ads at the moment (please confirm).

    We will be adding new sections to Mobility and re-organizing the forum in the coming months as we expand beyond .mobi. We'll be requesting feedback and suggestions as well so that we get it "right". A section for Mobile Devices as well as Mobile App Development will certainly be added during this "upgrade".

    Now getting a banner for Chrysler deals in California, highly relevant since I'm car shopping for Mrs. Scandi

    That's definitely better than Google Text Ads but I hope we get more mobile-relevant banner ads as time goes on.


    Also, folks, since Jemm Media does not offer Mobile Ads and AdMob requires PHP edits which I don't want to do with the vBulletin code, I've added an ad for my own site on the Mobile version of Mobility while the Jemm Media Campaign runs (I think that's better than the "Advertise Here" link I had before). This isn't the idea, as I'd ideally like to give an Advertiser exclusivity on both the PC version and Mobile version of Mobility, but this simply isn't an option for Jemm Media, particularly since they are an advertising aggregator and not an end-user themselves.

    The same here on my PC in Munich, Germany. Three Google banner ads in English language. Content is changing after renewing the site: HelioScooters .com, DatingDisabled .net (my wife? ), BulkSMS .com, DriverPlex .com, MobilityPass .com ...

    The title tag of "mobility" is probably pulling up the mobile wheelchair ads. I'm not sure if you want to mess with the title tags of the forum, though - I've heard google can penalize a site for that.

    confirmed, just saw a banner ad from Argos (big UK national retailer and online catalogue sales) for pet insurance, which took me to their dedicated site for their pet insurance in the UK.

    Right now there is one really beautiful ad in German language by travian .de. Was curious and clicked the link - a browser game I did not know yet.

    Mobility.mobi will be my prefered place to watch advertisements.

    I "won" a $1000 shopping spree in the tiny town 15 miles down the road.

    Did not click.

    Yeah, I "won" a school shopping spree in San Diego - this must be reading the chatbox too since I said I was driving Little Coast to school. These things are creepy.

    Edit: Now I have seen two more pages of mobility scooter ads.

    If these type of low-quality ads continue, I will not complete the one-month trial with this advertiser. I don't want Mobility to be associated with those kinds of Ads. When they approached me, they told me that their inventory consisted of Mobile companies and I'm not seeing it yet. I'm not interested in Google Ads either.

    This has been escalated to their Managing Director, so I'll be hearing back from them tomorrow and will report back.

    Thanks for your feedback as always, folks.

    Since I didn't buy the Chrysler the scooters are back

    It's inevitably difficult to get relevant advertising like this, is there an affiliate program or programs you'd be interested in promoting instead? At least that way you'd be in control of the content.

    I'm no longer seeing Google Ads and most of the ads I'm seeing are for mobile-related stuff, so it seems that they've fixed the problem for the most part:








    Not exactly high-quality stuff but at least they're mobile-related.


    Is anyone still seeing Google Ads?
    Is anyone still seeing mostly non-Mobile ads?

    approx breakdown for me:
    -80% google ads for mobility scooters
    -20% banners including Chrysler, Progressive auto insurance, and University of San Francisco
    -0% related to anything mobile phone or mobile web

    Right now I see 3 Google ads for scooters.

    Maybe if I buy a scooter, it'll make the ads go away?

    Ha! I am seeing a giant banner for .tel registrations. Oh, the irony... Oh wait, that was Scandiman's thread haha.

    Ok, I got something for a browser game, and then that dumb one that I won a scholarship in San Diego (looks worse than a google ad.) This is the one I see most of the time:



    I saw this one one time, it's more targeted and it's for a hospital review site:

    I just realized something weird:

    Using the Chrome browser (which is what I always use now), the drop-down menus up top show up behind the ad! So for example, I can't see the search box to type anything in. Anyone else seeing this in other browsers?

    I also use Chrome, the drop down menu works fine for me.

    Folks, just a quick update to let you know that I've taken down the Ads from Jemm Media as they were simply not offering the quality nor the relevance I was looking for.

    Thanks for your feedback!
