If you find an offensive advertisement and wish to report it, you need to know the URL. Instead of clicking the ad, try these tips to find the URL.

1. Try to see if the URL is listed right in the ad.

As you can see in Image 1, the URL is right in the ad, it says "Recipe.com." If the ad lists a URL like this, that's all you need to report an advertisement. [Of course, there is no reason to report Recipe.com, it's just used as an example.]

2. If there isn't a URL mentioned in the ad, try finding the URL by copying it without clicking the ad.

NOTE: If you are using Firefox, simply paste the copied link. Only part of it is necessary, but if you do not know what part, just submit the whole thing to us.

Internet Explorer:

NOTE: If you are using Internet Explorer, the above instructions will save a file on your computer. [Don't worry, it's just a harmless text file, it won't hurt you.] After downloading, open it with Notepad. See if you can find the URL in there, usually near the top.

3 . If the advertisement is a Flash ad as seen in Image 4, then things get a little more complicated. The following tips are recommended for advanced users.

Chrome users: Try using the "Inspect element" function, then find "param name="flashvars" value="Test.com"" Test.com is the URL.
Firefox users: Download the Firebug add-on. Then, follow these instructions to find the URL.
