Hi all,

I am curious does traffic seem down on moparts these days? I know it is the summer and all but it seems this place is not as active even compared to previous summers.

I'm getting the same feeling. I suspect Fakebook is behind some of it.


Wife says too many cars, liquidation coming soon......

Yeah, I am guessing Facebook or twitter even is taking a bite.

People are leaving because of infolinks. It's pretty much impossible to view Moparts on a cell phone.

Example linky

I thought I saw that slow decline lately increase a noticeable amount right after the "cage match" sub forum came back on line, but that maybe confirmation bias on my part. work

Infolinks didn't magically install itself on Moparts.

I’ve been avoiding it because of that too for a couple years.

But yesterday I just downloaded the Ad Block Plus app and no more pop ups.

So I’ll be here more.

But I come for the knowledge and experience people bring. If that’s weak, the less I’m here.

For those of you looking for a way to deal with the advertising overhead, here are a couple of solutions I've been using for some time now, this is PC based, using Firefox browser (but for the most part the add-ons are universally available for multiple browsers):

1) NoScript
- truth be told, you can run this with the default config, but the more advanced stuff is not for the faint of heart, I'm an IT guy, so I absolutely love the controls otherwise

2) uBlock Origin - Firefox, uBlock Origin - Chrome
- very simple interface, the visual 'dashboard' allows you to turn off anything annoying with a 'point-n-click' type of an interface, so you literally load the page, then use a pointer to tell the add-on which parts of the website should be disabled, in other words: point to the add and KILL it!

Feel free to PM me if you want any extra info on these. Again, PC based solution, haven't tried this on any of my mobile devices because I simply can't stand trying to do this type of stuff on a tiny screen!

That is what I think. Slowly killing the goose that lays at least some dollar bills.

So you WANT traffic to drop another 75%?, the 50% Doc contributes, and the 25% that are brave enough to respond? laugh2

For years I thought it was going to be a bigger deal.

Finally bit the bullet...

Ad Block Plus turned out to be really simple on my Iphone. Should’ve done it a long time ago.
