What’s going full circle. Ad heavy is bad to nothing but ads.

Some websites have gotten so mobile-first they’re essentially unreadable on a large desktop monitor.

Going on an optimistic note, the great team at Bing lately shared a promotional code with me to offer new advertisers a complimentary $100 ad credit. Bing Ads clicks are a great value when compared against Google AdWords. You can access this coupon today via the next link:
