Yahoo: Enough with the Ads in RSS

April 5, 2010

I have RSS feeds and news alerts setup across a lot of different web sites for a lot of different words and phrases. A lot of those alerts are setup for U2-related stuff, you know, because I work on this little U2 site … and this U2 concerts site, too.

One of the feeds I track is a Yahoo News Alert via RSS for any articles that mention “U2.” That feed, for the past two or three days, has suddenly started showing Yahoo ads. Ack!


Seriously, Yahoo … this is beyond annoying. Make it stop. Yesterday, please.

    I’ve seen it all over other RSS feeds, but that is site specif- not RSS agitator generated.
