T-Mobile Ad

Postby Shapley » Thu Mar 30, 2006 10:41 am

I have a new one for you.

Twice today I've visited the Beethoven.com website and, instead of getting your website, a T-Mobile ad has come up in the middle of the screen, nothing else. The Address at the top indicates that I am at your website, so it's not a hijack. It appears that the ad loads and then prevents the rest of the site from coming up on screen. A 'refress' will bring you site up without the ad.

It doesn't make me want to buy anything from T-mobile. :mad:

So can you get b.com on your T-mobile?

I had that happen to me once yesterday. I blew back and through it without checking anything.

Annoying.

The lengths marketing/advertising people will go to in order to hook 1 sucker out of 1000 people they harass...

Check today's Dilbert cartoon. Dogbert claims to have won the Marketing Biathlon: You ski up to people who won't buy your crap, and shoot them.

I'd have been dead ages ago.

Hello,

Sorry for the trouble. I looked for a TMobile ad in our ad serving software but couldn't find it. Could someone try to email me a screen capture of the ad and I'll send it on to our providers and see if they can find and fix it? Thanks! clarsen@beethoven.com

Chris,

If it recurrs, I'll try to capture the screen and send it to you. I've not had a recurrance since posting the message.

Chris,

I've had no recurrence of the T-mobile ad. However, I ran Spy-Bot after I posted that message. It's possible that some ad-ware program lurking in my computer was guilty, as Spy-Bot removed a couple of items.

I'll let you know if shows up again.

I also experienced the ads a couple of days ago, but they haven't returned.

No clue. Sorry.
