Ads

Somehow I doubt I'm the only one that will think the horizontal row of Google Ads for "Web Blog", "Travel Blog", "Add Blog", "Blog Trends", and "Blog Tools" are actually content links on the site. Fuck lame ad formats designed to confuse people!

tricky
Ad formats that look just like content or navigation trick the user into clicking and get high click-through rates, but in the end, being tricked into something or not getting what you want or expect backfires and just serves to give the advertiser, the site and ads in general a bad name.

It pisses me off too.
