Frequently Asked Question #262. Why are there ads on LiveJournal? How do I remove ads from my journal?

Advertising is displayed on LiveJournal to certain account levels to support site operations and to ensure that there is an account level available to users free of charge. In exchange for viewing and displaying advertising, Plus Accounts gain additional features and storage space in a manner similar to Paid and Permanent Accounts.

Removing Ads

It isn't possible to remove advertising on LiveJournal other than by changing your account level. The only way to ensure that no advertising is ever displayed on your journal or profile page is to upgrade to a Paid Account. Additionally, users with Paid Accounts who are logged in to LiveJournal see no advertising anywhere on the site.

Customizing Ads

LiveJournal's goal is to create innovative ways for users to interact with advertisers, while showing ads of the highest quality. You can select your ad categories, which help in displaying ads that are relevant to you. You can also choose where ads display in your journal.

Prospective advertisers

As a prospective advertiser whose ads fit LiveJournal's ad guidelines, you can email lj_ads@livejournal.com about advertising and promotional partnerships.
