How often do you click on banner adds while surfing the net?
Google adsense pays per clicks. But is anyone clicking on banner adds these days? Or have we grown accustomed to simply ignore them?
If something interests me I click it for sure. Sometimes I click on random ads to help out fellow hubbers as well.
I actually never click on Banners or ad's while searching the web, because many are simply just misleading folks to places of dangerous malicious content. Especially those of unknown origin, and on a site that's known to be malicious in nature itself.
To be quite honest, I almost never click on adds. Whether banner ads or text ads, especially those double-underlined words in an article. Those are the ones that present annoying, distracting ads that rarely have anything to do with the "real" topic. Perhaps my aversion to these ads is due to the fact that I am a person who uses online marketing to generate income, so I naturally "ignore" ads because I know what they are there for.
In my opinion, I think that if anyone clicks on ads at all, it tends to be either people who are easily duped by deception and marketing tactics, or children who don't have the money to buy anything any way.
If you think about it, the only people who make any money with pat-per-click ads are the companies who place these ads like Google, Facebook, etc. The sad thing is that out of the billions of dollars spent each year on this kind of advertising, the return on investment (ROI) is so low that those who pay for it are just getting ripped off. I know this to be true because I used to pay for ad placement with both Google and Bing, and I ended up spending 10 times as much as I would make.
I don't click on any banner or ad unless it is of interest to me. Senoritaa, if Google detects your clicks a false clicks, you are not helping hubbers or anyone, because google will shut down their adsense account.
I rarely click on the banner adds, though I will say that If I am supporting a trusted site, I will occasionally.
I never click on banner adds. All too often these cause some type of problem such as a virus
So if nobody is clicking on these ads, how is Google making billions of dollars every year???
I would really love to get stats on this and understand who exactly is clicking and what is our return on investment when we invest in this
I use Ad Blocker for Firefox. I've never clicked on ads before I started using it, but now that so many are either annoyingly flashy or play loud audio, its just better to use this.
Online banner ads and/or text-link adverts are almost as annoying as commercials on television and paid-advertisements on the radio. Nobody really likes 'em, but they help pay the bills...
I am always afraid to click on these adds because I am afraid i will get a virus or something. However I have clicked on them before if I recognize the company or the information interests me.
Great observation! Somehow I rely on these ads for some revenue but without clicking on any myself. SHHH! Do not tell Hubpages this lest they catch on.

Can it go against Google rules if they have deliberately done this thinking they are helping you? I am worried because I just had a comment posted saying "thumbs up and adsense."

Here's something for you guys to consider, and I am simply reiterating a comment I made on another post. You need organic traffic to your Hubs! Why? If you are using adsense, or any other monetization method on...
