    There will be a history  in   internet advertising from February 1st.Audio ads will be seen in internet.How hubpage authorities are taking this oppurtunity? Many hubbers will be benifited from this. We should combinely request the hubpage authority to allow audio ads
    Friends your view

    Audio ads will just ensure that my speaker is always set to mute! I think these things will sink without trace  -don't the marketers realize that a lot of people surf at work!

    No those are only 5 second ads and area oriented.So hubpage authority should take steps

    I wouldn't just jump the bandwagon right away. I would wait some time to see the reaction of internet public, and then make a decision.

    What Lissie is saying is that many people surf the internet at work.  I did, and I know that if I visited a site and it played music, I would immediately click off it and never go back again.  Because people around me would know that I wasn't working!

    Whether it's only for 5 seconds or not is irrelevant.  Last week, I visited a site that had a frog leaping across the front page.  It croaked.  It was only twice, and I had the sound set low, but still the people around me looked up.  Fortunately, I was visiting the site legitimately for work, so I showed them the site and we had a good laugh.

    I would support audio ads ONLY if visitors had the choice to click on the ad to hear it.  If it plays automatically when you visit the page, I vote no.

    they already exist and have done for a while, you roll your mouse over them to mute them.


    so no... personally i would'nt like to see them, its like they're the adverts are pressuring you to look at them by making a noise. While I'm here I'll say thats why i don't like phones, they're rude,  the ring is like someone poking you in the side of the head going "talk to me, talk to me, talk to me, talk to me, talk to me". anyway rant over im going to bed. I'll probably have a hangover tomorrow.

    If you disable javascript from being run in your browser....the ads won't be run...and the advertiser won't be charged.

    However, as a way to monetize your hubpages...I think it may be a good idea IF you want to opt-in to this type of advertising.

    As it stands now, you can opt in to receive profit sharing of Google Adwords, eBay, Amazon, etc on your pages but there is I haven't found a way to not show these ads (maybe there is)...

    I think this would be a great feature to add IF hubpages gave you the ability to choose not to run the audio ads on any chosen or all hubs.

    What are people referring to by "PPP"?

    I remember coming across some business opportunity called PPP.  I think it referred to as Pay Per Play. It was some sort of pay per click advertising affiliate program much like Google Adwords/Adsense, where the publisher would receive a small fee for an "impression" or audio played in the background every time a webmaster's webpage was loaded.
