    Hmmm, I wonder to what extent Google will be able to enforce this...ALL auto-play videos regardless of format and where they're hosted etc??

    I heard this recently.

    I think that is actually great. This will reshape the way people market online. It is freaking annoying to go to a website and have all of these ads autoplay without your consent. You are the one making these advertisers the money, the least they could do is be respectul! Come on advertisers!
    At the beginning, I thought making money online with a blog was super super hard. Not anymore. Learn the art of making money online blogging - step by step - HERE.

    Probably not too bad for us.

    I will stress the importance of text based adverts in your site. They take up less room AND convert better.

    Also if you've got a tonne of adverts on your site you're probably doing things all wrong and should be thinking about making your own products.

    This is an interesting step. I'm curious to see what companies and people will do to adapt.

    I just took a look by loading up a handle of pages with auto-play videos, and they all still auto-play just fine... I wonder if for now people will only have the option by logging into their browsers settings area, and manually setting this up?

    This is a great development, actually.

    It will push publishers to SELL through CONTENT-based conditioning and persuasion.

    Google is doing the Internet a great favor by cracking down on those obnoxious ad types

    Well, Google Ad blocks may be in place but I am confused what would really happen to the publishers who earn from advertisements. Also, if that would impact the various online advertising models or not? Since it is next to impossible to block all kinds of internet advertisements online without impacting the business.

    Well, it provides you the perfect opportunity to go back the plain old text-based advertisements. Also, you can also give organic SEO a try. Since many of the online marketers are moving towards FB & Google Ad Words advertisements, it leaves plenty of room for the organic SEO experts.
