We’ve been running our ethical advertising campaign for over a year now, and it is starting to show success on making Read the Docs more sustainable.
Over this time, we have only been running ads on Read the Docs themed projects. The primary reason for this is making sure that our display of ads is consistent and doesn’t negatively impact the user experience. We’re trying hard to build a sustainability model that respects our users, and making sure things are well designed and unobtrusive is an important part of this.
