False and Deceptive Display Ads at Yahoo's Right Media

False and Deceptive Display Ads at Yahoo's Right Media

Benjamin Edelman

 

Yahoo's Right Media ad marketplace features widespread ads exactly designed to deceive. I present ten examples of these deceptive ads, and I critique their unwelcome characteristics. To estimate the prevalence of deceptive tactics, I examine Right Media's own analysis ad characteristics -- finding that by Right Media's own admission, deceptive ads total 35% or more of Right Media's advertising inventory.

It is a Flash ad at the bottom of the home page of Nirsoft that is causing me grief.

 

There are so many neat utilities on that site and I never had a problem before but it seems that the latest Flash update permits these popups so I have installed TurnFlash to disable Flash quickly:
