    Adblock will block it,
    And you'll get an antivirus notice on your website after a short time.
    Many video hosting websites did that in the past (Don't know if still doing it) and they got some bad reputation for it.

    Oh, and it's not worth it if you don't have a lot of visitors and they should stay for a long time on your pages

    There must be better ways to monetise if you’re site is receiving traffic.

    I tried in some time back, the returns weren't very good with 100-200 users a day. At this point I don't think its something you should pursue, as the damage in terms of speed and reputation of your site is not worth the return.

    i even doubt that it would be profitable with the speeds you can gather, and users will leave rather soon. at least those are my 2 cents

    Your 2 cents is also the same amount OP would probably make per day.

    Ever since a GPU algo was developed for Monero CPU mining hasn't been profitable.
