The first-time visitors to the Yahoo!
Finance blog, which is owned by Yahoo!, tend to be younger people looking for a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to get an idea of what they’re paying for, said Katie Koehler, senior director of product at YAF, which operates the blog.
The blog, like Yahoo!, allows users to post and track their spending and purchases, with a few key differences.
These include identifying information, such as your IP address, and providing a unique cookie identifier to advertisers who wish to target them, according to the company.
A few users have complained about the advertising on the blog, but many say they have been happy with the way it’s been set up.
Yahoo has said it is looking into complaints about its advertising on Yahoo!
posts and a Yahoo!
spokesperson said the company is reviewing its advertising policy.
Koehlert said Yahoo!
may change its advertising guidelines in the future.
“They may have to revise that,” she said.
The first post on the site appeared in October.
The company also says it is experimenting with ad-blocking and tracking cookies.
But many of the complaints are about a single issue: the adverts are all from a single advertiser.
has taken the easy way out and just made the ads,” said Koehnert.
Yahoo Finance, which sells products and services including personal finance, investing, and stocks, also runs a popular ad-free forum, Yahoo Finance for the People, where users can post and discuss how they’re using the site.
But some critics say the Yahoo Finance forums don’t allow users to discuss the ads.
Yahoo Finance for The People, which features a list of the most popular ads for Yahoo!, has had a rocky start.
The forums, which are operated by Yahoo!
employees and have a large user base, have not allowed users to report negative comments and users have been posting anonymously.
On Yahoo Finance’s Facebook page, the post “This Is Not Us” says: “YAF has removed Yahoo Finance from their marketplace.
This is not Us.”
But the forums are not the only issue with the site, as other Yahoo!
sites have also seen negative comments.
Forbes.com’s Yahoo Finance blog is one of the site’s most popular.
On Yahoo Finance: Yaf Finance is owned and operated by YAF.
It has been for a long time, and we’ve been working on improving it.
Theres a lot of work to do.
You know, we are not a good company, and there are a lot more people that work there than there are posts on the Yahoo forums, and so we have to figure out a way to make things better.
