Internet advertising has always been a real frustration of mine. I can deal with the subtle ads on google search pages, and a picture of a Chevy in the corner of news articles, but the whole blinking, audible internet ads of late as well as the bars at the bottom of every online video I just can't stand. I don't think I'm the only person that feels this way. Why did ads get this way? Surely annoying people isn't a very effective advertising technique. I have often found myself navigating away from sites with these kind of ads just to avoid annoyance. I think I would be less likely to buy the product the ad is promoting after encountering the ad, so how is it supposed to work? Youtube used to be fairly ad-uninfected, but of late it has caved in order to be able to give more money to it's video posters.
