Google Video Ads

According to the Inside Adwords blog, Google are soon going to give Adwords advertisers the ability to show video ads on the Google content network. This is a fantastic development for both Adwords and Adsense users.

Site visitors are becoming all too used to text and images ads - to the point where they instinctively ignore them. This is bad news for both the advertiser and the publisher. Video ads provide a new means of attracting visitor attention. The only catch is Google video ads do not play automatically - they display a static image that has to be clicked to start the video.

Still, can’t wait till it is released here in Australia. :)

    It’s probably better they don’t autoplay. The ads are probably going to be pretty large files.
