I get it that the main point is to get traffic and visitors. Tons of them!
But then I thought to myself: "Dude, who the f*** clicks on Google ads?"
I mean, even if I get one thousand people to visit my site every day, I don't think that more than 3 or 4 of those guys will click on the ads!
People hate ads, people avoid ads and people are blind to whatever banners or text ads are there.
Even if you color blend the ads well into your page, people will still ignore them and will not click on them.
And this goes for the text of the ads too - no matter what the ad says, no matter how smart it was designed, people are trained to ignore it.
I really don't know any people who click on ads and I have been on the internet for many years.
I know it depends on the niche and all that but an ad is an ad - in its essence it is trying to shove something down your throat and people would install all kinds of ad blocker plugins in their browsers just to avoid seeing it.
So, who really does click on ads? Are the clicks accidental?
I know this sounds like a complete newbie/moron question but hey, I'm still not convinced that 1000 visitors per day will get you any clicks.
