I am another website owner who is unhappy with the advertising banner. I have been told - and in principle I accept - that free uCoz websites include an advertising banner. What I think is deplorable is that uCoz allows featured adverts to have fake "Close" buttons that take you to the advertiser's website.
I draw your attention to the following extract from the Wikipedia article on “Pop-up ad”:
Fake close buttons
Users of websites and web applications continuously experience unwanted pop up ads through the course of their normal interaction with a web browser.[7] Ordinarily users respond by dismissing the pop-up through the "close" or "cancel" feature of the window hosting the pop-up. Because this is a typical response, some authors of pop-up advertising depend on this, and create on-screen buttons or controls that look similar to a "close" or "cancel" option. When the user chooses one of these "simulated cancel" options, however, the button performs an unexpected or unauthorized action (such as opening a new pop-up, or downloading an unwanted file on the user's system). Because the technologies for web development and design allow an author to draw any kind of "simulated" cancel option imaginable, some users refuse to click on or interact with any item inside a pop-up window whatsoever.

I am currently exploring the attitude of Trading Standards towards such ads which are unquestionably deceitful if not illegal.

I am fully aware that uCoz provides a narrow vertical "Close" button beside these ads. I believe uCoz has a moral responsibility to make these buttons more conspicuous, because the average site-visitor is far more likely to notice the fake "X" in the advert itself.

LinearMan, I have forwarded your concerns.

IAM, there is only one required ad banner on uCoz websites that can be removed only after upgrading to a premium plan. The pop-up banner can be disabled for free. If you have any other ads on the website, please provide a screenshot, so that we could look into the issue.

IAM, thank you, I will forward the info to the person in charge. Also, does the redirect website open in the same tab or in a new tab? For me the ad on your website opened in a new tab, and I could access your website by switching to the original tab.

IAM, BlueBoxAlpha, one more thing - there is a timer in the top left corner, and once the countdown is complete, it is replaced with an X. It should close the ad.

Sunny,
Thank you for forwarding the concerns I raised in message #3 about banner Ads with fake "close" buttons and the real Ad-close button being too inconspicuous.
Can you also forward the suggestion that the banner ad be linked to site headers, so that they scroll up with the web page. To have them fixed on the screen makes them a source of annoyance which surely alienates potential customers from what they are offering.
