I was equally excited about 10 years ago when I first saw a banner ad. That level of excitement has dramatically diminished within a few days thereafter though. Since then I maybe clicked 10 times (once a year) on a banner ad. 8 times out of 10 I left the destination website within 5 seconds. I never bought anything either.
But hey, it doesn't prove anything ;).
Wow! 10 years ago? Hmmmmm...10 years ago I had no idea Google existed nor what a banner ad was.
Well, the level of excitement hasn't died down for me yet. I think having video ads is just such an awesome thing.
Maybe it's cause I'm part of the You Tube generation?
First there was Gen - X
Then Gen - Y
Then the Pepsi Generation.
Finally, Youtube. <-- I think I'm here.
Those video ad units are the ones that resemble You Tube vids, right? =-\
As far as clicking, I don't click much either if at all. I'm already 'blind' to a lot of online advertising.
