About the Advertising

As you may have noticed, we recently added a little advertising to BibMe. We did this not because we’re trying to be greedy or annoy anyone, but because, unfortunately, there are some real costs involved in hosting and maintaining BibMe. We sincerely hope the advertising doesn’t offend anyone, if it does please let us know. We’re going to be experimenting a bit over the course of the next few weeks to try to determine the best approach. We may end of scrapping it entirely. Happy Citing! Ben Tucker

  1. I don’t think that you should put advertising on BibMe because it will take away from every good thing on BibMe. It could also distract users from their topic and what they are actually doing.

  2. Hey, if you guys had a donate button, i would be more than happy to chip in. This site has saved my arse plenty of times…and if you ever go premium, sign me up!

  3. This is a wonderful service. As far as I can see, it’s the only one that handles Chicago format, which I am required to use. Advertising is no problem. I’d also suggest making your donate button a bit easier to find…I only stumbled across it by accident. I don’t think anyone would mind if it was part of the template for your main pages.

    Thanks again!

  4. all of the advertising makes my compute very slow!! so thats why i try and not to visit this website that much!! i go to a better website for bibliographies. but if you guys stop the ads then i will visit more often. but i still LOVE this website!!!! (sometimes) just kidding

  5. The ads are barely even noticeable unlike some services. Great service. Keep up the good work!

  6. Are the ads still there? I don’t see any. Maybe my Firefox plug-in is blocking them ^_^.

  7. Hey!

    Just wanted to express my appreciatation for this site!! Whom ever thought of this is brilliant!!!!

    Thanks Bibme People!!!!

  8. I definately agree with the other posters about the DONATE button. The advertisers do not bother me at all. This site has saved me hours of time that I would have wasted. Everyone at my school uses this – THANK YOU SO MUCH.

  9. This is the best site I have found for citations. It has helped on everything, from research papers to homework to extra credit. BibMe probably saves me about 10 minutes for every internet and citation related assignment. I hardly ever notice the ads, so add more if you need to! My whole school uses this site, too. Thanks a bunch!

  10. this site is sooo awesome. I just found it the other day and I so dearly wish I had found it earlier!! I am a severe procrastinator, and now I don’t have to worry about citting in Turabian formatt for history!!!!! And I can sve it!! This is a wonderful cite and I will recomend it to all of my friends!!!!!!!

  11. This site is very helpful….it makes homework assignments easy!!!

    Thanks For The Site!

  12. Echoing the comments above, the ads are no problem at all. In fact, if you need help making money on this site without letting it get annoying, let me know. This isn’t spam, I promise. But I use your site a lot and maybe that would be a way for me to give back a little.

    Thanks again,

  13. Thanks so much for making this, totally saved my life for a project three days late 🙂 I am definatly recommending this site to all of my friends! And the adds are no problem at all cause it’s just such an awesome service.
    I hope to donate in the future 🙂

  14. I have learned to tune them out, most people do it just like with commercials. I however agree that ANY website should be able to make money without people screaming at them over it.
