Why such a limited amount of Vids?

ASA really talk to these guys, I thought this was a great product and even the people on CNBC was waiting to hear what G was going to do about Y Tube to really make some money. Now Im sure that you guys apparently are paying $$$ to the video posts but Jeez I have a site about golf and golf products, there are over 1,000,000 vids about it on You Tube and I am getting videos about a stupid man in a Darth Vader Suit.

Whats Going On, when are you guys going to get that on the ball.

So guys i then take it that there is no way to preview the You Tube Adsense Blocks, before I put them on my site then?

And perhaps even more important, Google will show the same ad multiple times to the same visitor.

Why show the same ad ten (or even more) times? If the visitor did not click on it the first five times then it would be a lot smarter to show a different (text based) ad. A bit of diversion would be nice and much smarter.

--edit--
I see this topic is about Youtube. I'm talking about image-ads :) Sorry

As the saying goes, pioneers are the people with arrows in their backs. :-)

As for showing the same ad repeatedly, that's called "frequency," and it can be both legitimate and productive if the goal is to build awareness. (Not all ads are direct-response ads.) That's why you'll sometimes see the same TV commercial twice during the same station break. It may be annoying, but apparently it works.

hehe, never heard that one before.

I agree its a proven formula in advertising, kind of like the salesman that keeps on talking after you've said no thanks.
At the same time you would think the opposite might be true for some industries.

It's easy for Google to lean on the tv business model for advertising wrt frequency, but I'm not sure it's going to be the best idea. It might seem like an internet glitch!

We have different expectations online. The internet is more like an office to me than a living room. I don't mind watching commercials from a couch, but I'm really not interested when I'm at work.
