NEW UGLY SPAM ADS ON EMAILS FROM WP BLOGS AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT THEM

Published October 3, 2018 by Donnalee of Woodstock NY

Recently many emails from WordPress blogs have featured big spammy strips of three visual ads on the bottom, completely having nothing to do with the content of the blog it came from, and when I wrote to complain about the the heck is up with that and if they planned to stick them on all our accounts, paid and otherwise, they replied:

‘Hi there,

I believe you can remove the “related posts” or “posts you might like” section from email notifications for your site by disabling the feature in your site’s settings. It can be found under the Related Posts heading on the following page:

https://wordpress.com/settings/traffic/ (put user name here with no spaces after/)

Note: this setting will also disable the related posts section from being displayed below posts on your site’s webpages as well. There’s no way to configuring these separately.

And changing this setting will only effect post notifications for your site, other publishers would have to change that setting for their own site if you didn’t want to see them in post notification emails from other publishers.

If you have any more questions about this feature or anything else on WordPress.com, we’re always here to help!’

I think it’s worth checking your site settings, everyone, if this is of interest to you. I personally don’t keep emails that I usally keep, like ones with lovely photos or sewing ideas etc. if they have this stuff in it, since I do not want it. Good luck with it to all.
