In response to a reader request, the Lovefraud Blog offers a new feature—a listing of recent comments. Snippets of the 10 most recent reader comments, sorted by post, now appear in the navigation panel on the left of your screen. This will make it easy for you to read comments, even if they’ve been added to posts from the blog archives.
By the way, if you use the Firefox browser on a Macintosh, as I do, the recent comments feature is not yet displaying properly. Our webmaster is working to correct the problem.
A bigger change, which you’ve certainly noticed, is that Lovefraud is now displaying more ads, and ads with images. Google ads are somewhat of a mystery. Google uses a top-secret algorithm to calculate payments—some days the revenue is more than other days, for no apparent reason. Recently, however, Google made a change in the algorithm, and as a result, Lovefraud’s revenue is down, even though our traffic is up.
In any event, the ad revenue doesn’t come close to covering the expenses of maintaining Lovefraud. Hopefully the additional ads will help.
You’ll probably see a lot of ads for dating websites. This is because Google places the ads based on keywords in our content, and the name of our website contains the word “love.” It is incongruous, given that Lovefraud always warns about the dangers of Internet dating. But the Google robots don’t necessarily get the context, so they serve up the ads anyway. If we see some that are offensive, we’ll block them. In the meantime, feel free to click on the ads—for a hoot. But always remember that with Internet dating, you must proceed with extreme caution. Lovefraud does not endorse any of the dating websites.
We’ll be making a few graphic changes to improve how the ads display. This will take a bit of time, so please bear with us.
We’re also working on another initiative that will offer an important to our readers. You’ll hear more about it in the near future.
In the meantime, Lovefraud will continue to offer you insightful articles explaining the behavior of sociopaths/psychopaths, and helping victims to recover from these predators. I encourage you to comment about your observations as well. I know that I’ve learned plenty from the comments of Lovefraud readers. The Lovefraud blog has become an important forum on this serious personality disorder.
