I wasn't talking about porn sites, just news and info. I visit digg, myspace, youtube, and gardening sites mainly. thedailypage has more ads than any of them which wouldn't be so bad since they are small but the animations get really annoying. The constant movement is a distraction. You can set a gif to cycle as many or few times as you want. The ones that get my attention are the ones that have long waits before or between animations.
Are madison.com, channel3000.com pr0n sites? (Wait...don't answer that)
But seriously, click on the links I posted, you know, right above your post. Go ahead. Tally up the ad positions and sizes.
I do not think my point could be more straightforward.
OK, with me now? Just for fun, let's go to one of your fave sites, www.myspace.com.
The ENTIRE PAGE is an ad for the Batman movie. There is an inline video component set to autoplay. The bg image is like 1200x1800.
Seriously, you like that better?
