Big Problem Solved :)

For those of you that have come to my blog recently you may have noticed ads. I put a small, not very noticeable widget on my blog. The widget said nothing about using my site to advertise for other companies. The other day I pop on to check out my blog and boy did I get a surprise. I was flashed an ad for porn!
Wow


I just could not believe it! Anyone who knows me knows that I do not in any way approve of porn. I did fix the problem. The widget was from rankwidget.com and I do not recall ever reading where I gave my permission for the ads. Removing the widget stopped the ads.

I do have to thank a couple of people for their help with fixing this problem. Stacy of My Thoughts talked with me over the phone and used her computer( faster Internet service)to pop all over looking for the same problem on other blogs. She sat and read through a lot of blogs and comment to help me come up with a theory to the cause. I also want to say thank you to the very nice lady at clickser.com. Their ads (nice ads, not smut like the others)were also coming up on my blog and I left a message with them to ask why their ads were there. The very helpful lady told me that I was correct and it was rankwidget that was causing the problem. She suggested that I remove it so I no longer get the ads.


I am just happy my blog is back to normal. I want to warn everyone that rankwidget will put ads on you site that you do not want. I do want to say thank you to everyone for understanding.

I'm just glad people have figured out what was causing this. I have little kids and things popping up on "safe" sites all of the sudden. Not just yours but a couple other blogs too.
