Re: Only bots click ads

Display advertising is only one of the kinds of ad that Google sling.

The ads at the top of the search page and the entirety of Google shopping are the real winners for Google as they don't need to pay the publisher/creator any ad revenue.

And I can tell you that real people definitely do click on ads, unless these bots have very deep pockets for all the stuff they keep buying.
