First of all, thanks to everyone who replied to my question. I read a couple of articles on this and the more I read the more confused I got, which is not surprising since I am old and set in my ways. I don’t do TECH and that is apparent on my blog. I try new things and just when I think it’s safe to go back in the water….yikes! A new rule arrives. Here is the gist of it as far as I can see, and of course I am nearsighted:
Most of the articles that popped up were from businesses wanting you to purchase their app. Probably the reason it’s popping up so much in WP for me is because I block cookies and ads as much as possible.
I complained about this when I had to upgrade my email account on yahoo, one I’ve had since 1999. I lost old addresses, now have a cluster of new ones mainly businesses which I never contact, and always ads in my inbox which blocked as spam, keep reappearing. Needless to say I am terribly disappointed in their new format and when asked, tell them so.
You can teach an old dog new tricks if they want to learn, but what if they don’t?
