Nuffnang and its mysterious "nn_network_s" Span ID!?

The HomeBiss blog is a Glitterati member of the Nuffnang blog advertising community and the blogger behind it has placed a leaderboard (728x90) ad unit at the bottom of his blog. Something strange happened last week and the blogger is not happy. The strangeness has something to do with Nuffnang’s mysterious "nn_network_s" Span ID.

The blogger invites Nuffnangers to take a good look at the following screenshot.

Nuffnang and its mysterious "nn_network_s" Span ID!?

Other than that Nuffnang ad, what else do you see at the bottom of the HomeBiss blog? Do you see that mysterious white boxy square, right below that Nuffnang ad?

For your information, that mysterious white boxy square is generated by the following code:

<span id="nn_network_s">

<iframe frameborder="0" style="border-top-width: 0px; border-right-width: 0px; border-bottom-width: 0px; border-left-width: 0px; border-style: initial; border-color: initial; width: 1px; height: 1px; right: -100000000px; " id="tframe" src=""/>


The above code is not the blogger’s doing and it does not exist in the HomeBiss blog template. The code is generated automatically by the Nuffnang ad code during loading time. Bear in mind that you won’t be able to see that mysterious white boxy square if you specify a specific container with absolute width and height clearly specified for your Nuffnang ad code.

That mysterious white boxy square first appeared last week but the blogger couldn’t recall its exact appearance date but he’s not happy with it at all. That mysterious white boxy square looks damn ugly and it messes up the appearance of his blog. The blogger sincerely hopes that Nuffnang will take a closer look at their ad codes and do something about that mysterious white boxy square.
