Why doesn't the status bar change?This feature changes the browser's status bar to display a certain string when you move your mouse over an ad. To prevent phishing and other malicious attacks that mislead visitors, most browsers by default no longer allow this functionality. The browsers will show the full link/URL that the visitor is going to click when the mouse hovers a link. Therefore, we do not recommend using or relying on this feature for your ads.
