Kids click on banner ads most according to a research held by Nielsen/NetRatings. What this means, is that we'll now be seeing ads like 'click here to win a free Barbie doll!' or 'Subsribe to our newsletter to get your free Pokemon'...

The banners will start getting larger too, as advertisers will find it hard to squeeze "don't forget to ask your parents before you click" into 468x60 pix.

I'm surprised RJ Reynolds, et al. haven't jumped on this...

Or maybe that's the origin of Cartoon Network's "Powerpuff girls" click ads?

I hate ads because their like commercials they tell things that can depress, and make you mad. especially
those back to school commercials. I saw one today beginning by a teacher saying that she did'nt become a teacher for the money, she said she did it for the kids. And it turned out it was a commercial for office depot. Now whenever I see it makes me depressed and at the same time I laugh its EVIL.
