Hey guys/gals,

I was browsing BlogCatalog just minutes ago to see what people in the blogosphere write about our lovely community & the themes here… AND I was served this Google Ad that you see below.

TF Ad

Is this really a TF ad? Because if so, I must say… interesting approach you guys have :)

This is the page where I saw the ad.

Might be a referral link. I was thinking about doing it with some unused ad credits I had.

I didn’t know that www.themeforests.net exists.

well the fun part is that it goes to themeforests.net AND you navigate basically the same themeforest.net site – sort of like in an iframe (because all links are the same, no “s” at the end of themeforest)... plus, there’s no ref id at the end of any link…

I’m hoping it’s Envato’s ad, because I don’t think they’d allow such promotion…

Funny – probably a referral link, not a bad idea though :)

Yeah, it kinda shocked me at first.

However, if it’s not Envato’s campaign – do you guys allow such promotion? ‘cause this gives me some cool ideas :D :D :D

EDIT : the link “This is the page where I saw the ad” seems to be redirecting to the main page :|

I wouldn’t think that it’s our ad, but I’ll check. I’ve never heard of the plural ThemeForest. :)

Just an update that we’ve disabled the account of the author who created that link.
