Something strange going on

Various random words throughout the site appear highlighted in yellow. When one hovers over them there is an ad for blood pressure fixes and a 'click' box. This includes the word 'visited' from my top bar welcome area, but if one clicks to go to another Fauna area the yellow highlight disappears and it is no longer a link.

I'm not seeing this, either on Firefox with a fair amount of privacy protection on board, nor with a stock version of Safari that I just used to look at a dozen or so ads.

Sounds creepy, though.

I don't see it on Chrome with uBlock Origin either.

That new service, InfoLinks, I am using is putting in those orange underlined links in text. Appears they just pick words at random and usually point to something also completely random.

To show the difference between the above and an embedded link made by the author of the post -> Pop-up ads!

Yes, I know. But if InfoLinks is willing to pay me to display those linked text thingies that go nowhere, who am I to argue with them? It is up to them to point them to a paying advertiser. I am just providing the web pages for them to be displayed on.

In any event, they seem to be quite non-intrusive, comparatively, and I think I could even change the color of them somewhat. But I think making them stand out such that people will soon figure out what they are may be better than trying to hide them in any way.
