    I just noticed how bhw banner is a school example of how not to make banners. It says "CPM in this position NOW!!!"
    Caps NOW with 3 exclamation marks, really?

    Maybe what he wants is the attention? Cos I don't think anybody will be on BHW and be absent minded... not with all the awesome ideas and free tools floating around. BHW IS AWESOME :D

    I don't think it even matters. BHW has so many users, they could put a picture of spongebob with 3 exclamation marks and it would still work.

    I would like to see your evidence of why the banner doesn't work.
    I would also be interested in seeing what banners you think could increase clicks/conversions.
    Would you care to make one?
    I would like to see an expert at work.

    The thing about "school" is that they do not know fuck-all about anything in the real world. If BHW us doing a marketing technique, then the school needs to re-write it's curriculum in order to reflect what the current industry standard is.

    Further, when confronted with a disparity between what's being done in the real world, and some theoretical concept that you think you remember that you learned at some point in the past from underpaid government socialists that have never had to actually earn a living in the competitive real world, you choose to invest your faith in them, and not in the real-life example of internet marketing, as the standard by which all other marketing efforts should be.

    This says something about you. Who you are, and what you are, and what your limitations are. To me, it indicates a "herd" mentality, someone that cannot think outside the box, and desperately runs to the safety & security of the dumbed-down drones of the retarded herd every time the real world fails to adequately mimic your indoctrination and programming. You do not seek knowledge or truth, and by extension independent success; instead you seek validation and affirmation, and are willing to sacrifice anything and everything in exchange for the safety of not being required to think independently in order to compete and survive. Worse, it's not just you. It's virtually "everyone" that is manufactured into this prefabricated construct. It's an empty suit of standardized thought patterns and pre-programmed emotions that you volunteer to put on and wear for the rest of your life. The blue pill. And it's the reason why we are programmed by the mass-media, cowed into submission by the surveillance state and accept the parasitic label of "consumer" without a shred of shame nor loss of dignity. We (meaning "you") eat and excrete shit. And that's all you do.

    LMAO! I don't think the BHW owner is too concerned about what some people think of the exclamation marks.

    They probably should teach at this banner ad school that before a certain ad network put out the "no fun allowed" sign, the highest ctr was achieved by a banner made in mspaint consisting of "don't click this" scrawled with the mouse in black on a white background. Think outside the BOX!!!!!

    You're so fucking incapable of conceding to a mistake and incorrect observation that you'll pointlessly defend an even more pointless thread with a lie.

    Regardless, the space before the exclamation marks is incorrect and rather annoying, though you failed to point this out in your OP anyway - another mistake, I suppose, but maybe he added the space once he saw your thread.
