Why I don’t show ads?

Since April 2021, I have stopped showing javascript based ads (including the likes of Google Adsense, Ezoic etc.). The reason was to provide consistent, clean and fast access to gauravtiwari.org. These ad services not only hurt the website performance but also track you down on what you are browsing. While I cannot control what you’ll do on external sites, I can handle your privacy rights on my site.

In addition to above reason, there are two more reasons to not show Adsense ads: Core Web Vitals and revenue.

Google is using Core Web Vitals to influence ranking of webpages. Using Adsense ads negatively impacts page load and thus hurting web vitals.

In addition to this I have noticed that the affiliate revenue drops with Adsense active. This maybe due to too much distraction and slow page load, but whatever the reason, Adsense hurts affiliate revenue.

So, we’re better off without Adsense.
