Google advertising continues to boggle my mind


Even though their ad share slipped ever so slightly in quarter 4 last year, they still pulled in over $25B.

I can't believe people click on so many ads. I mean, who is actually clicking on these damn things? I noted before that I don't even see the ads, but it seems many do.

I'm so stunned by this that you may have noticed I've started experimenting with AdSense on my various sites and blog feeds. (Apologies for the visual pollution – I intend to pull them off after a few weeks). Just what motivates people to read and click ads? I can't believe it.

I understand ads in Search result pages (since you are actually looking for a provider). But all those ads cluttering up sites – it's just ridiculous.
