The owners of those website platforms make part of their income from the adverts, by monetizing the Web traffic going through them.

Aerojet.co – Ways of Delivery

The Aerojet.co website and its ads could be delivered in various ways. One of these ways includes third-party installation setups. Without your awareness, the adware can be put on your computer system with the third-party installer setups via bundled programs and freeware. Installers could be set by default to add more content with the main software in the installation. To prevent any unwanted components from installing is easy if you find a Custom or an Advanced settings menu. You should be able to deselect content there.

Aerojet.co advertises itself across the Web space and many sites can display their ads. Banners, pop-up and pop-under adverts might be utilized to invade your computer device if you are not wary enough. Visiting websites of unknown origins or such that seem suspicious is another way for delivering the adware, while also using redirects on such websites. Browsers that can get affected are the following: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari.

Aerojet.co – What Does It Do?

Aerojet.co is the main page for an advertising platform of the same name. Lots of advertisements and redirects will be pushed by it while you try to browse the Web if you have applications tied with Aerojet on your PC. The platform and all programs connected to it are considered adware. From the snapshot displayed below you can view the main page of Aerojet.co:

stf-aerojet-co-aero-jet-adware-ads-main-website-page

Viewing the promotional text that is used to advertise the platform, it can be deducted that there are other similar websites and platforms affiliated with this one, which will also push adverts. On top of that, search engines with browser hijacking capabilities may be installed. Targeted advertisement content will inevitably follow as well. In other words – nothing will be better, contrary to the things promised on the main page of the Aerojet.co website.

In case your computer machine has any software installed, related to Aerojet.co, you will witness a big amount of advertisements on sites that you visit. If your browsers have an extension, add-on or some plug-in associated to the adware, you will experience a multitude of adverts. You could be redirected to web pages which can be partnered up or affiliated with the owners of the platform.

Advertisements pushed by the platform can show one of these texts inside them:

  • Ads by Aerojet.co
  • Advertisement by Aerojet.co
  • Ad by Aerojet.co
  • Advert from Aerojet.co
  • Powered by Aerojet.co
  • Brought to you by Aerojet.co

Redirects could be in the form of advertisements, or that of in-text links. The Aerojet.co platform will spread them and place them on websites to generate Web traffic and spread targeted content that website owners sponsor to be placed there. The online traffic which is gathered can be turned into real money by using a pay-per-click scheme.

The advertisements can be of mixed types, but all of them will have the same purpose – to make revenue for the website platform owners. Advertisements associated with Aerojet.co can be shown around the Internet as pop-ups, in-text links, pop-unders, banners, interstitial or transitional adverts. Other ad types are not excluded from showing, as well.
