For those of you who read an earlier post of mine, you'll understand that my site has AdSense ads and no ads load in IE 7. In fact, I tested another website that uses ads in the same browser and even they don't show up.
I checked my user access log for my website for there seems to be some people still using IE 6 along with other older web browsers but the numbers aren't in the majority.
Now I see from https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/191268?hl=en that AdSense only wants to support IE 10 and up.
In the other post I made, someone suggested I should try to encourage users to upgrade their browser but not in a forceful manner but I'm not sure if that's enough to convert a user to a browser in which they actually see the AdSense ads.
The point here is that I want everyone who visits my website to see at least one ad per visit and so far, IE 7 is preventing that from happening. Installing IE 6 is a joke on XP so I couldn't test in that. Luckily on webpagetest.org a computer in Montreal running IE 8 showed the ads.
I admit I do suck at advertising and I also don't want to hurt real users.
So what would be the grand solution here?
