    What are those sites doing that you could do better? What are they not doing? Look at them as a user - what's missing or what annoys you about them? That's your opportunity.

    This isn't entirely "passive" but I don't put a huge amount of time into it. Check prices and availability periodically, researching and adding new content each year ... traffic is entirely organic. (I should do FB ads or at least remarketing, but there's never as much time as I'd like for side projects.)

    those ads were based on the content of the page (page about luggage shows luggage ads) but now everything is personalization and retargeting....you visited this site once so now im going to show it to you every chance i get until my advertisers budget runs out.

    you can check your adsettings here
    https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated?hl=en

    you can also see what gender and age google thinks you are...

    now they have a pay me money and ill show you less ads option

    Its amazing they created an adstorm that people hate and as a solution they allow you to buy a ad free pass..


    talk about having a poison and selling its antidote!

    Advertisers can control that to make it less obnoxious - if they know how (or want to ...)

    Contributer only works with "participating sites." I think I posted something about that here when they first announced it - publishers get compensation from the user's per-page fee.

    yeah I know im not the first to mention it here. hoping more concepts like basic attention coin take off.

    my background is advertising and while I understand may people take action on these ads I also know that forcing them will have a negative and reverse effect.

    On remarketing a lot of advertisers are lazy and don't limit it to a reasonable number of times displayed over a limited period of time. And yes, if people feel too "stalked" they'll never visit again.

    agreed....lots of ad rev wasted on lazy settings or recommended setting in adwords. I do however like the new native ads in adsense.

    AdSense doesnt bother. I visit some websites with ads and have no problem reading the content, but all this shortners and popups appearing each time you click menu or READ MORE do make just close the website and never come back again.
