  1. Not sure if I find that statistic particularly convincing – and in any case the real test would be the conversion rate and ROI from the different ad types. Generating visits is an interesting metric, but unless it is backed up with information on conversions, brand recognition or other numbers that show value, it could just be costing money.

    Personally, I find video ads no more effective. The better ones need a click to play anyway, while a site with video ads that auto play or play on accidental mouseover tend to make me want to leave the site.

    I wonder if you could measure how many of those clicks were near misses of the stop or mute buttons?
