Pay Per Play Ads

I have seen a lot of talk lately about Pay Per Play ads. PPP are ads that plays a 5 second audio ad automatically to every visitor who visits you site. I guess the company is offering a pretty aggressive referral program, because everybody seems to be pushing them lately.

I personally would not sign up for the network. I find the ads very annoying and would never subject my visitors to this annoyance. But I guess if you had a site where you didn’t care about return visitors, they might be OK.

    I was thinking the same thing. WTF are they offering for referrals?! It has to be something good. I actually signed up and then was like screw this. Not even worth it, IMO. I was just extremely curious why EVERYONE and their mother was promoting PPP.

    I wouldn’t want to annoy my visitors. Plus, their site looks like a 10 year old designed it.

    I have a post about Pay Per Play ads on my blog and, While I agree with you,I also disagree.

    It really does depend on the site your showing the ads on

    If your put them on a blog, Big mistake

    But some sites are suited to them.

    I have to disagree, Marcus. I would hate any sites that have any type of audio ad play automatically. It would always be obtrusive and annoying.

    Not sure if this is a good idea. It would get annoying and distracting to hear some commercial playing when I visited a site.
