    Do you ever click the ads when searching for something on google.

    you know the ads that come up on the right hand side of the screen when you do a search. I very rarely cick on them. Just wondering how many people actually use them.

    I very rarely click on the Google ads, mostly because I find them irrelevent most of the time.  The odd time I will click on one if it is very interesting or relevant, but I never click on the ones in HubPages (not even other people's hubs) because I wouldnt want to violate adsense terms and conditions.

    i have on occasion clicked on an ad on google, but not that often and  never while on hubpages, can't be too careful with google adsense on hubpages!

    The people that know they are ads probably don't click them as much.. But there is a big demographic that doesn't know they are ads and I'm sure they click on them from time to time.

    Somebody is clicking them.  Google Revenue for last year was $28 Billion.  96% from search advertising.

    Why not click on an ad if they are offering what you are searching for?

    I do it all the time because I know that when I want to find something to buy they will be relevant to my search.  This is different from Ads appearing in the content network on Hubpages.

    Unfortunately the relevancy of Adsense displayed on Hubpages bottomed out when they made all the changes.  Might have a lot to do with subdirectory changes.

    I see a lot of totally irrelevant Adsenses Ads... but the Ads displayed on Google itself are usually very relevant.

    I have clicked ads on the right side of the Google search page. Sometimes also found the link useful.

    I very rarely click on the ads I see while I use google. Sometimes ads leads you to a crappy website and I just stay clear away from those.
