Learn about ads on our site and why we have them.
Verified Handles uses Google AdSense to display certain advertisement types in places on our site. We hate showing ads but we have to in order to meet our hosting and server costs.
To ensure your user experience on our site isn't significantly impacted we opt for ads that keep pages simple and clean to allow for easy access to our database.
Ads are primarily served when links are clicked, both internal and external, these are called 'vignette' ads and you can learn more about them here.
As a non-profit we think it's important we are transparent about the earnings we receive from all ad types on our site. To learn more about our finances visit our finance help page.
