HUKD Blog is now acting as an Advertisement Space

Does anyone else agree with me that HUKD is changing?

Dealspwn, Playpennies and now bloomin Mobot.net ......when does it end. One is for gaming, one for kids an now one for mobiles, whats next groceries? Lol

I thought you couldn't advertise other sites on HUKD that profit - is this not what's happening with  Dealspwn, Playpennies and Mobot.net? By going through the links it profits that website, just like what the Deal links do for HUKD

I myself am getting fed up with all these external sites being advertised.....was never like this before. Don't get me wrong tho, I love reading what's being said in Bitterwallet, love some of the story's which are rather amusing at times. I thought Blogs were just articles for reading or am I wrong?

Hukd blogs = Advertisement space

If your not happy use another website. Simple really!

It's their website they can do what they want with it. Doesn't really bother me, bitterwallet is quite amusing though.

bitterwallet is ok, the rest aren't very good, but meh... dealspwn is a shame, could be lots better. playpennies is just for the dolers.

doesn't really bother me - i block all the adverts using adblock elements.

But the blog part is fastly becoming a 'mini hukd'

isn't a blog meant to just be articles, story's etc?

Not sure if I'm missing the point here but going by the size of hukd it must cost a fair bit to keep it running. We don't pay anything to use the service so surely can't complain about advertising being used to fund the site.

Should there be a separate area then for advertisement and Blog material?
#8
websites are made to make money

so are a lot of blogs

Ah I thought blogs were just for reading purposes, articles, story etc

nope....advertising ultimately along with ad words etc. can still be interesting....my girlfriend follows http://ohsheglows.com/ its grown considerably and she gets heaps of stuff sent being so popular, can turn from a hobbie into a business

Corrected that for you X)

Their better articles are ones that aren't just rip-offs from other sites....or where they've tried to expose a scam or take up some consumer issues from this site.

You should look a bit more into how this site is funded. Advertising is not needed imo.

But I can honestly say I've never read a dealspwn or bitterwallet post, never even heard of the playpens one

its all about online advertising now. HKUD and other blog sites just adjusting to new times thats all.
#14
If you don't like the site, start your own.

I can understand the ops point the site has changed its ethos significantly over the years. The strapline for this site still is "deal anarchy from the masses" not advertising TO the masses.
#16
it definitely takes away from the clean ad free sort of image this site had.....soon it will turn green and feature paul nikkel smiling smugly in the top left corner

*shudders*

adblock it.

Tbh its hardly in your face OP - just a small menu - when you compare it to the mess over on MSE with ads all over the place - its hardly worth complaining about
