Following their success in the U.S., we're rolling out video units over the next several days to English-language publishers in the UK, Ireland, and Canada. If you're not already familiar with video units, they're embedded, customizable video players that can enrich your site with relevant video content while enabling you to earn extra revenue from the relevant, non-intrusive ads that accompany the videos.

Very nice. I love the video ads!

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.

Does anyone in the UK have these enabled in their Adsense accounts yet?

hmmmm ...... more cr4p on the average page to wade through to get to relevant info...

Probably convert quite well though... shame cos we ain't never going to get any competition over here at this rate - which ultimately is bad for everyone - especially Adsense publishers!

I don't get the video ads unit. Are they content or ads? If they are content, can we put them in a page alone without additional content, which is prohibited with the other ads? And if they are ads, where can you actually place them considering how huge the format sizes are?

Video ads are a strange hybrid, especially when you can't even predict what the video will be. I tried it once but the video content wasn't relevant at all (I don't blame their targeting, the ads were great, I would blame the lack of videos for my topic).

I just don't know what to do with them. Is it a solution in search of a problem?
