Is there a place where I can see all the ads listed in SO?

When I was reading a question, I liked an ad, then quickly hit the back button. When I hit the forward button, the ad had changed.

Is there a way I can see the ads for a given tag or something?

It's starting to sound like Jeff & Co. need to build an ad gallery.

Then you could put more ads in the gallery! $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

  • Ha. The above 'ad gallery' link is dead. Only Stackoverflow would remove a page that showcases their advertisers to people that actually want to see ads. So disrespectful to the advertisers that paid you.

You could always refresh a whole bunch of times to see that ad... I'm kidding, please don't do that ;-)

But, we were thinking of putting together a "sponsor gallery" of sorts that listed out all of the sponsors with a brief description. Kinda in the vein of what we have on the every-now-and-then sponsor appreciation posts at TDWTF: http://thedailywtf.com/Articles/Sponsor-Appreciation,-Emptiness,-Empty-Support--More.aspx

There are some pretty cool companies that sponsor the sites.

    If you weren't aware, this guy is actually the Ad Manager (or whatever you want to call him) for SO/SF/SU

    @Tom, I actually prefer "Ad Sultan". Though, for some reason, "the ad guy" has stuck. Aug 15, 2009 at 18:00

My greatest pet peeve about online advertisement is relevance - I'm not interested in 99.9 percent
of the ads I see (although the relevance is a bit higher on the trilogy, IMO).

My second greatest pet peeve is that I can't get back to the 0.1 percent of ads I'm interested in, because I already clicked a link or hit the back button, and I happened to see one out of the corner of my eye while the browser was refreshing.



You could visit the Unofficial Meta Stack Overflow Stack Overflow Ad Gallery. If it's not there, it would be greatly appreciated if you could add it at a later time.

  • Dead link now; has the post moved or is the list completely dead?

  • @sarnold: deleted by Jeff Atwood♦ Jan 28 '11 at 6:58. There seems to have been a big change in the ad serving server, so most, if not all, the images linked ceased to work.
