Statement about Removal of Google Ads on Connoisseur Magazine US and UK by the Publisher & introduction of Membership system to enforce login
-Why We are ditching Google
-Removal of Google Ads to enhance User experience and extricate ourselves from the Google ecosystem
-Statement by Connoisseur Magazine Brand Custodian and Publisher, Axel Ritenis
After receiving numerous complaints and negative feedback from Readers and watching our Traffic drop significantly in recent months, We have slowly come to the realization that Google Ads negatively impact the overall user experience and potentially damage our credibility and traffic levels with high bounce rates.In addition Hackers are weaponizing Google Analytics and SEO systems and SiteKit to damage and deface our websites.
-Constant malicious Bots and hacker attacks used to disfigure our sites by hackers found to be part of the Google ecosystem
Sadly like many other sites, We are getting attacked by the Chinese and the Russians,..for obvious reasons, BUT now to top things of,.. We have also come under constant attack from Bad actors with malicious attacks disconnecting our Google AdSense plugin (SiteKit) and Google and SEO Analytics systems. This is regular and constant interference by well-organized and sophisticated hackers,..who are weaponizing the Google echo system against us,to disrupt our ability to post and share fresh content.
Consequently, in the interests of enhancing User experience and because of the negative experience with the Google Ad and SEO systems, We have decided it is no longer viable to expend time and energy in maintaining a cumbersome highly technical, and intrusive Google Ads System on our site that is not secure and highly vulnerable to malicious hacking any longer.
