Graphics Unleashed Web Site Updates
We've made a change to the site in the past few days that will probably immediately be obvious to anyone who visits fairly regularly. The Google ads at the top of most pages have been removed. We have also removed some of them that weren't at the top of pages. No, they have not all been removed. Part of the reason that some remain is it will take more time to remove them and some we are testing to see if they are worth keeping.
Most visitors will initially rejoice because rarely does anyone want ads on a page. Yet it is the income from those ads that helps to support free content and/or the costs of maintaining a site. For a site of our size and the traffic that visits, the cost is quite expensive just to keep it running.
Since we know many of you will appreciate the decrease in ads, we have to ask you to help us keep the ads away. By removing them, we lost the income they generated. Show us your appreciation by occasionally buying something. It doesn't have to be expensive as we have well over 1000 products that cost $5. Of course we wouldn't mind it you bought something expensive. Heck, you could even suggest to someone else that they buy something. Every little bit helps!
Along with the big changes at the top of the page came a big change at the bottom of most pages. We have a box that allows you to buy software. The box underwent a major redesign and has links to a lot of popular graphics software. In the case of the links for Corel and Adobe products, you are buying directly from the respective companies. If you click our links, we do earn a small commission on the sale. So if you are planning on buying some software, we sure would appreciate if you could click our links. You will always get the best prices available from Corel or Adobe!
There was one other big change and that was the additional of the "Follow Graphics Unleashed" buttons to both the top and bottom of the page. Many of you reading this post are regular readers and you may already subscribe to the blog via e-mail. If you don't subscribe, please consider it. You'll get one e-mail each day with all posts from the previous day. There are also icons for become our Facebook fan, my Twitter follower, a Google+ follower, a LinkedIn subscriber, our YouTube channel and shopping at the Amazon and Corel stores. Please consider following us at the various social media outlets and use the Amazon and Corel icons if you plan on shopping at either location.
While another change isn't as visible at first glance, we've also done a bunch of updates in the drop-down menus at the top of each page. Hopefully you'll be able to find what you need faster. Thanks for all of your support and I hope you appreciate the changes we've made!
