Get rid of the ads, and focus on real news, not fashion, sports, gossip. Yahoo is currently looking more similar to a tabloid rag. Remove the non newsworthy items, which are 90% of your current content. You must have a bunch of puberty aged staff deciding what content to publish.
The way you started placing a large ad in between the big headlines at the top of your page is beyond tacky. You have enough ad revenue from the ads between the articles so why do you feel the need to add even more and even larger ads now? Are you trying to advertise how desperate (or just greedy) Yahoo is for ad money? Have some consideration for your readers who come to your page for news, not to be bombarded with ads. If you keep adding more and even larger ads you may lose your readers all together.

You allowed a company Broewas.com advertise for a sale on Brooks shoes. This was a scam. Why doesn’t Yahoo verify that the companies that they provide access to on their sites are the actual company and not a scam? If you can’t be trusted to do this then I will have to use a different search engine. I should be able to trust what is on your site.

I appreciate the facts you post but what you post as headlines is extremely unsettling. I know this post won’t be read, and that of course one person shouldn’t change what you do. I appreciate the facts, and the honest headlines as hard as they are, but I cannot run a business when people associate me with some of the things I’ve seen when I go to the yahoo page. I do wish that everyone at the Yahoo family is safe and healthy, and wish you all the best.

If you are paying by the ad watched please check Lucky Cat and Happy Scratch. During their "daily tasks " I had to watch 97 copies of your ad. 91 of those were sequential. It seems you are being screwed over by these companies.

Yahoo is a middleman.
if your home page is looking like a tabloid rag it's because of your selections for news sources that Yahoo provides to you

I couldn’t even finish watching a video on a news article (that started by running an ad) before another ad came on to interrupt the video I was very much wanting to see but can’t because having your newsfeed page set up as a “floating page”(so an ad can occupy the space behind, between an fill any other space that might not have anything else filling it up) isn’t enough advertising for you to make your money?!? I get that you may be considered as one of the “not so big” forums but my gosh(!!) do you really NEED all that advertising?!? A 3minute video is interrupted for goodness sake! Perhaps if you need the money that badly that you need to subject anyone trying to use your application to get their information, you should consider what other options are out there that’ll enable you to continue existing but for the love of God stop ramming advertising down our throats (anyone who’s anyone would opt to avoid it all together if they could so you’re really just chasing people away with a really big AD! and stop making me have to sign in every time I move to a different area of your application, after I’m done with this I’ll be redirected back to login and then try to find my email (where I’ll probably have to login, or at least prove its me) again! GEESCH!

No ads would be great. A bigger x so I can. Close it would be an improvement. That I now have to tell you 2x that I don't give a s. about the ad is highly annoying BS.
I'm about done with yahoo.
Going to start using my other email (not promoting any other service, so it cant be banned).
I'm just getting to the point where I'm done with yahoo just that much...
Sick of the bandwagon posts, bs celebrity stories, and the RIDICULOUS ads that you cant get rid of.
Maybe you guys should start negotiations with the national enquirer. Two peas in aa pod...
Mariquita Perez-Shade commented
You guys must be getting really desperate. It used to be that I would only see the ads in just a few small areas. Now, I see huge ads all over the news feed!! I can't even enjoy you guys anymore because you have gotten money hungry through posting all these ads!! Ugh!!!!
1. Please stop all the stories on all the (especially the obscure) celebrities and what their kid did, what they wore, or what their best friend status is.
You are CHEAPENING your editorial influence with this foolishness.
2 on the same token, you "Ads" are just as ridiculous as well. You are the National Enquirer of the internet.
I used to count on yahoo for accurate news.
Now you're as bad a facebook...

Video ads need work
Joseph Hymel commented
Every email I open now has an ad section st the top of my email. It more specifically is a deal from WISH. it was enough to have a banner ad above my batch of emails but now inside every email is a WISH deal. I cant shop it. I detest it. I want to just scream. Stop it. Stop it. Stop it. STOP IT.

Stop promoting one party over another.

There is so much negative news, so why do you find it necessary to weave CBS’ “Evil” promotion Within paragraphs and stories. I find it offensive to have to see that image.

Your allowing your customer to get ripped off by tool ads. Control your ******* used car sales ad reps or I am gone. Verizon shame on you!
Bryan Prediger commented
There many many bugs that’s been reported dating back 2 years. Very little has been done to find and correct. From what I can tell there mostly related to ads. I reported one that involves the overlay on mobile. Where you stroll down the page and it runs over an ad. It corrupts placement of other controls on the page. I’m starting to think your programmers aren’t capable of going through the messy source code that they’ve created. It’s no wonder that bugs stay in place for years. Scrap it along with the programmers and start a new.
David Walters commented
I agree! Focus on real news and stop with all of the celebrity gossip and fashion articles. Also, stop bombarding me with pop-ups. Lately, every article on yahoo that I click on activates 4 or 5 pop-ups. I have been a Yahoo user for many many years now, but if this continues I will stop using Yahoo and never look back.

When i click on a story it pops up a page that says about.blank and i have to exit it. Then when i click back to the homepage it pops up again sometimes multiple times. It does it on every story. Im about to quit going to yahoo.
