Five clicks to get back to the previous page in Topix, that is.

Geeze, got enough monetization going on?

Everytime we go to read a reply, they put interstitial pages to tracking/ad-management sites called 'bluekai'(twice!),'exelator', and 'adblade' so it takes 4-5 clicks of the back button to actually 'go back' to the previous page.

Don't you 'just' love Topix?

Clem 'i' had to look-that-one-up!

monetization ~~ Website monetization is the process of converting existing traffic being sent to a particular website into revenue. The most popular ways of monetizing a website are by implementing Pay per click (PPC) and Cost per impression (CPI/CPM) advertising. Various ad networks facilitate a webmaster in placing advertisements on pages of the website to benefit from the traffic the site is experiencing.

PS:'i' guess it's about like company's paying for email addresses=?=

Topix would be a total waste of time if it wasn't from the bits of edumacation it provides now and then.

For the most part I'm computer illiterate and I don't understand all those letters. IE, URL etc., nor am I very good at reading text.

I do know what it's like to click repeatededly because it's not responding quick enough for my liking at 98wpm. Dang Games!!

I'm laughing reading your replies and I think it was QQ that once said ... "These people haven't found a date yet?" Lol
;~)
