Oh, there is advertising. As I type this I am looking at an ads for astrology, Windows 8 app guides, and marriage records. I also frequently get adverts telling me that if I go onto a certain dating website, I can meet 12 000 women aged 18 to 35. I don't want to meet 12 000 women aged 18 to 35, I am perfectly happy with my husband thank you.
Maybe they're not on the Ask.com app, if you've got the app; however it appears that some people don't have ads on their computers either. Strange...
