Although the banner ads seems intersting however we all know that no one is going to pay you $173 per hours and it tends to get annoying when it flashes on every website or web page you visit, distracting you while you are busy with something else.




Smileys are great! Expressing feelings through smileys is a wonderful way of communication. What irritates internet users is that when this banner appears on the screen, it automatically plays a sound and you tend to act like a rocket scientist trying to figure out where the sound is coming from. Also, if you are working in office and this banner ad appears with the sound, well, no comments…it’s a personal opinion altogether!
