If it helps with de-bugging, there's no such ads on my iMac screen .....

I get the eBay ads at the bottom of the page. At least they are Brit bike related. Not annoying for me at all. Probably generates a bit of revenue. Try the Ratnet site. Ads are sneaked in all over the site totally unrelated to motorcycles. The site is painfully slow and crashes my older iPad. At the time I checked, the ads come in from 134 content marketing companies which is part of the performance problem. When they moved their platform to a content marketing model, all members had to re-register from a link sent to the email address in their profile. My email was with Hotmail, which was phased out by Microsoft, so I could not re-register and rather than set up a new account, I abandoned the site. Much more satisfied with Britbike!

The e-Bay column in the bottom is placed there by me.
All adverts on BritBike has always been about british bikes so non related exposure don't exist here.
For sometime now I tested this and showing Triumph, now BSA Motorcycles.
I put it at the bottom only so whenever someone scroll down they will see it.

I'm going to make further tests but it will also be at the bottom.
btw its not pop ups its part of the page and will not pop-up in a separate window

It looks good to me however using iPhone it will shrink and be put on the left side that must be a bug.

Morgan,

Advert panel is centered at the bottom on my iPhone, iPad and Windows XP laptop and Windows 7 desktop. When you bring all the different devices, browsers and versions including OS versions, screen sizes and screens changing from horizontal to vertical, keeping things aligned as intended becomes a difficult puzzle. Where I used to work they had whole departments testing pages with developers constantly fixing alignment issues. It has become a real can of worms with all the mobile devices.

Its probably my old 5S that is just to old I will check it on a newer iPhone.
The column at bottom is 300x750 just to suit smartphone, its not for large screens but again its at the bottom to create as little buzz as it can

Lol! Don't judge by my phone, my iPhone is a 6! Almost as old as my 70 Triumph.

Content is king. Screw the CSS. Your site is just fine.

Might be "re-targeting" ads

Hey Allan! Don't fret, I plan on using my iPhone for as long as I can. Shouldn't be a problem since I don't get any calls since I retired. I have more old things than new. Still have a pair of Levi's that were made in the U.S. Against my protest, Wifey forced me to get some new undies and socks recently.
