I know many of you have food blogs, I have a wordpress one. Maybe someone can help me out. Recently they just started putting advertisements all over my blog. I do NOT want any ads unless I get paid for them. Does anybody have experience with this and what I should do?<br>
I haven't the slightest. I navigated through my control panel and can't find a thing about it. Any ideas?

I looked this up back in May when I started my blog, and I believe you have to pay wordpress if you want an ad-free blog. I went with blogger because, at the moment, you can make the choice if you want ads displayed, and you get a very small percentage of revenue if you let them do it. But the ads slow down the pages and are ugly and spammy.

Ugh! I already pay them enough. I thought advertisers generally paid you to use your space. That is so backwards!

I don't see any ads on your blog. Maybe they don't put them on there for everyone.

hate to say it, but I just tried going to your blog, and my Webroot stopped me saying it was a potentially threatening site. Not sure why, but when I get those messages, I don't press on to go through it. You may be missing out on a lot of people visiting.<br><br>
and....I just did a google search for your blog using it's name, and it comes up with suspicious instead of safe site. Sometimes certain activites you do online, can cause problems like that.<br><br>
read through some of these articles to find out how to get rid of the suspicious listing....you have to prove to Google it's safe. <a href="http://www.google.com/search?q=what+causes+a+google+listing+to+be+suspicious&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox&ie=&oe" target="_blank">http://www.google.com/search?q=what+...archBox&ie=&oe</a>=

I use a program that tells me in google and when I go to a website that will say if a site is suspicious, but I'm getting a safety approved for your site on my computer. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":huh:"> Also I'm not getting any ads. By the way those s'mores cupcakes look really good <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">

Maybe my webroot is more cautious, as it was coming up on the Google search page as suspicious.

I'm not seeing ads there either. Maybe it's based on location somehow?<br><br>
I think sometimes ads from dubious sources can actually carry viruses and such, so that might be why some anti-virus/anti-malware softwares are unhappy about the site.

I read that too, on one of the goole links, that a third party ad can carry a virus or bad coding, which ends up flagging Google.

Thanks for the feedback- it is locational! I asked my family and some friends to look it up and they are getting ads. But some friends in other states are not. Thats dumb. And its even dumber that the site is now suspicious and most people aren't even getting the ads!<br>
My husband has a web guy who is going to look at it for me. He says he can get the ads off somehow. Yay!

I bypassed my webroot, and went to your blog anyway, I didn't see any ads either, and your cupcakes look good! After I visited your page, I went back to google and typed in your web addy again, and all of your posts came up with the suspicious. I thought that maybe after bypassing the antivirus, and your page was "ok", my webroot would reclassify your listing (for me anyway), but it didn't......sorry....that's a bummer! There's something in the background doing it to you.<br><br>
since you do have ads, read through this page, and see if you broke any Adsense terms of service....I know you're not banned, but it still might be good reading....and maybe before your friend tries removing the ads. <a href="http://shibashake.hubpages.com/hub/Banned-from-Google-AdSense-Common-Reasons-How" target="_blank">http://shibashake.hubpages.com/hub/B...on-Reasons-How</a>

What type of ads are you using?Do you use Google Adsense, Kontera, Chitika or other? Did you install a plugin for this? Or Did you add this manually?
