Seeing the same ad over and over - a suggestion

I have been seeing the same ad again over and over, at least 20+ times and I dismiss it instantly. This is a waste of my attention and a waste of the advertisers BAT.

An idea to improve this: Could Brave keep and internal count of how many times an ad notification has been dismissed without being clicked, and if this exceeds a threshold, such as 5 times, that ad is never shown again?

Hi @sonicdream,

Thanks for your post, and for the feature suggestion. I’ll be sure and pass this onto the team!

Thanks @sonicdream for the suggestion. Actually the browser does currently try to “cap” the number of times an individual ad is shown. Some still are set by advertisers to show a few times a day. What we are looking to do is improve the delivery algorithm, and make sure a certain amount of time appears between each ad so it doesn’t bother users as much. Hopefully we will roll these out in the near future.

Great info, thanks. I think you are already on top of things and the system will only get better. This makes me feel comfortable about my investment.

Thanks @sonicdream for your support! We’ve tried to capture better behavior in these two issues we are planning:
