Interesting sponsors

So Linden Lab is patiently trying to squeeze some needed cash by placing ads on their websites. Ciaran Laval seemed to have been the first to notice that Google Ads now appear on many of LL’s websites, and Hamlet Au picked up the story, quickly followed by many others. At least two forum threads on the official SL forums are discussing this.

And guess what? Residents, as expected, are not happy. But for all the wrong reasons.

Where do the ads come from?

This is the tricky bit. Linden Lab is certainly still “experimenting”: some people can see the ads, some cannot. They seem to appear at the main site, at the Dashboard, and probably elsewhere too. When you see an ad by chance and refresh them, they disappear, which makes many people wonder if they’re really seeing them at all!
