You asked for it, and Tripod delivers! Our members have let us know that
they'd prefer to have ads placed directly onto their pages, rather than in
a separate pop-up window. In response, as of January 31, Tripod will begin
embedding the ad served on your Web pages. This ad will be slimmer and faster
-- and soon it will even blend with your page's background!
Better still, you have the choice to keep an embedded ad on your page or
retain the current pop-up style. You make the call! If you find you don't
like the way an embedded ad looks on your page, you can always switch back
to the pop-up. After logging in, just visit the "My Account" page at:
http://www.tripod.lycos.com/service/welcome/preferences/ . Then, under the
Advertising heading, click on "change ad type." Feel free to experiment and
see what you like best.
Embedded ads will ensure that your site looks more professional, and may even
reduce the loading time on your page. Visitors will also be more apt to stick
around longer on your site, because they won't have to deal with closing or
moving your pop-up ads. We're pleased to offer this additional option for your
homepage, and we're confident that you'll be pleased with the change! It's
another way for us to thank you for using Tripod.
