I just heard Google Adwords brings in $28 billion per annum. :eek:

Does anyone ever click the ads on Youtube videos?

I click ads when I'm searching for stuff of relevance to buy, but when you're watching a video?

I don't even notice what they are for most of the time. I close them before they even get chance. That said I have noticed over the last couple of months the google adds have been much more relevant/dynamic/interesting to me.

Never, except the X in the top corner.

Yeah, about 6 months ago (I think) Google changed the TOS so that instead of just serving context-relevant ads to the content on the page you were viewing, they could also serve ads that matched stuff you'd previously searched for.  A cunning move, really.

Speaking of ads, the Mercedes-Benz Vito ad on the bottom of this page really got my attention!

It's disturbing how accurate Google ads have become, on the bright side as a future advertiser I can't complain.

Well, they're not Google Adsense, they're what's known as remnant ads via a 3rd party.  Occasionally they're nonsense, but they're mostly structured to be relevant to the demographic - in this case many folks browsing here own/run businesses, and which may require Danny The Vito to deliver. :p

Schyeah, sometimes I'm just innocently browsing porn, they show an ad for the latest Android Tablet and *boom* the boobs are no longer interesting.

I never click on Googls ads .......for some reason I expect the organic results to be more relevant.

Too expensive as a user, Facebook ads are very eye catching, cheap and effective, ....they do work.

I will use Adwords again just having a rest from them for a while.
