Whats up with youtube ads

by 9 comments
I notice almost all of the vids I pull up now have 30 sec ads
preceding them

I refuse to watch them and you cant go past the ads

I think this is a prime example of Googles arrogance and stupidity
killed the golden goose

would not be surprised if youtubes traffic plummets

    I Hate that
    It is really forcing people to watch their ads
    Just like cpalead gateway

    Some will say, but they must make money too

    Yes that is right, But damn, we run from TV To Youtube

    At least in my country I can skip the ad once I get to 5 secs of the ad.

    Yeah, some ads you can skip after a couple of seconds, others you can't.. Youtube is filled with ads now. =/

    I want to watch NBC news here in Manila
    online
    every story has a 30 sec ad preceding it

    but the ads lock up
    so it takes 5 minutes for the ad to play sometimes

    so now I go to yahoo news
    it has no ads

    I refuse to surf online and watch 30 sec ads I cant turn off

    Hello guys! I began trying to make a little side cash online and joined Warrior Forum back in 2011. In 2012 I was making Adsense Micro Niche sites and also Amazon sites, always focusing on keywords that I could grab an open .com domain name for. I had many flops, but did have an amazon site that did well and make me about $100 a month on average. I got excited and began writing more and more articles, creating more and more sites. Eventually my marriage hit a rough spot because my wife was upset I spent way to much time on the computer so I walked away from the micro niche site world... Fast forward 4 years, the marriage didnt work out anyway and I wish that I would have never left, I now feel like I have so much to learn all over again! Are Amazon sites still a decent way to go? I woulnt ask for anything to be spoon fed to me I know that is a huge pet peeve for many forum members, but any suggestions or just pointing in a general direction would be greatly appreciated!

    What would you write on your blog when you haven't even launched your product? I looked at 10 blogs and saw that most of them wrote about 'How they achieved and X metric' (non-relevant to the product), culture and other stuff when the whole idea is to gain more 'beta interests'! As a marketer, what will you do? In other words, what will be your content marketing strategy?
