Why aren't video ads available as a format via AdSense. Does Google just want them for YouTube and select publishers? Seems like Adsense has become even lower on the publisher checklist for advertisers.
Personally, I agree that video ads are super annoying. But come on, they are quickly becoming (if they haven't already) the standard in mobile ads. It seems odd to me that they are not even a option (that I am aware of). Google appears to be fully focused on YouTube and their rival Facebook when it comes to advertising. I feel like AdSense is almost a completely forgotten about program to Google in terms of the "future". I know it still brings in easy money for them. But it just feels like they know it's fading out and they are more than cool with that because they've found several other ways to monetize. It's like they are breaking out with you and just don't have the backbone to tell you.
