PITA: Pain In The Ass: I know that websites needs advertisers to see total page clicks in order to justify being advertisers. This however does not
change my annoyance with most of the free content sites these days. Why am I annoyed? I can't seem to click on an article just once, I have to click
on it several times.
I want to see a picture gallery and each picture is it's own page. This results in tons of extra clicking on a site rather than just a relaxed read.
This tactic is used by sites like PopSci, Cracked, Alernet (they at least give you a read full article option) and many others.
Do the advertisers not see through this tactic? Why do I have to click 40 times to see 40 pictures? Or six times to read a single page article....
All that being said I still appreciate the free content and a few extra clicks are worth keeping it free. Still annoys me though.
