Natural News eliminates all ad networks (including Google), announces new 'privacy secure' advertising system for 2016

News websites

(NaturalNews) Natural News readers love the fact that to this very day, we do not run auto-play videos, pop-up ads, pop-under ads, animated ads or other obtrusive, annoying ad units. Now, we're adding something else to that list: No more ads from ad networks!

(This means we also have new opportunities for quality sponsors... see below...)

Ad networks like Google or Doubleclick For Publishers (DFP) track your web surfing behavior and collect profiles of that behavior in order to target you with a barrage of ads. When combined with your search engine history, this data is used by corporations like Google to build shockingly detailed, complex psychological profiles of your private habits, likes and dislikes.

For the last two years, we've been working on a solution here at Natural News to eliminate all ties to ad networks and provide a cleaner, more private and secure website experience for our millions of readers. And now we've done it!

As of one month ago, we successfully eliminated advertising networks for new articles. (We're in the process of transitioning away all the archived articles as well.) In fact, if you search the source code of our article pages, you won't find any references to Google Adsense or other ad networks. (You'll only see references to the Google+ and other social media tags.)

Now, all our ads are served locally, by our own servers, where we maintain full control over those ads and can absolutely eliminate animated ads, auto-play video ads, pop-up ads, etc. Combined with our strict ad quality policies, we now have what many readers consider to be the cleanest, least obtrusive ad system of any major online publisher. (Don't you just HATE auto-play video ads? I do too!)

Ad blockers don't block our ads

Because we no longer use ad networks, nearly all ad blockers no longer block our ads. Ad blockers are rapidly rising in popularity across the 'net for good reason: Most websites throw an obscene number of intrusive, annoying ads onto their pages, practically assaulting visitors with so much garbage that you can hardly navigate their sites. (Washington Times, anyone?)

But here at Natural News, we only serve static ads from our own quality controlled local servers, so most ad blockers don't block our ads.

For sponsors wishing to reach a quality audience, this is a real breakthrough in online advertising. And for readers who want a quality, respectful article browsing experience, we deliver that, too!

We've totally eliminated inappropriate ads that used to slip through

Because we've also ditched all ad networks, we have simultaneously eliminated all inappropriate ads that used to slip through those networks.

For example, from time to time some network would show a pharmaceutical ad to some readers. Even though we systematically blocked pharma ads, new ones would always creep into the mix despite our best efforts to eliminate them. But under our new system, such annoying ads are a thing of the past.

New opportunities for sponsors

Now that our new "homegrown" ad system is fully in place, we have new advertising opportunities for sponsors... and a whole new ad department to handle ad placement.

Ad placement is also much simpler now: Instead of buying impressions, sponsors reserve calendar placements on the site's ad spots.

It gets even better: We've also rolled out our new ad system across all the website properties we publish, including NewsTarget.com, Bugout.news, Twisted.news and dozens of other sites that are all growing in popularity.

This is all controlled from one central coordination system that I personally designed and had engineered over the last 18 months. The system scales to an almost unlimited number of new websites, which is a good thing since we're launching another 100 sites (or so) this year.

Your privacy is protected at Natural News

Now that we've eliminated all ad networks from our website, large online advertising networks can no longer track your surfing behavior on our websites.

This is a huge deal for your privacy and protection, and I believe it's the wave of the future when it comes to online surfing and advertising.

Online readers do NOT want to be snooped on by ad networks while reading articles! And we've taken determined steps to eliminate those ad networks for good.

So enjoy reading Natural News, and know that we are constantly working to protect your privacy while respecting your web browsing experience.

No wonder Natural News continues to grow by leaps and bounds! (Facebook likes are up to almost 1.7 million and growing daily...)

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
