    Just wondering, am seeing girls in bikinis in banner ads on BHW for the past few months. Sex sells, yes. But it looks very unprofessional and on top of that, childish to use girls to attract people to click on ads. Looks like BHW is turning into Plugrush or something........annoying+destructing at it's best either way.

    Adblock plus stays on from now on.

    If I had a service I would use something cool in an ad like a dude in a black fedora boxing a panda(to represent google).

    With all the studs around here, and most making money, what else would an advertiser do to woo them, easily too? :)

    Hmm... Btw, do you think the "cunning :)" advertiser is testing someone who is on lifelong nofap campaign?

    If the ads are still running then clearly people are clicking on them. Know your market I guess.

    Lols, it's like you saying what a girl is doing in Shaving cream ad in television. It's no porno or anything, it's just people read most hot ad on site even if they have no idea what that ad is about, So to attract it's most perfect practice. Otherwise a Black dude with panda in his hand or head, clicks ratio will be lower as compared to a hot girl with Hummingbird in his hand will attract more clicks.

    Very true mate. The last thing I want is dopamine dose by these bikini girls just when I want to work. Also OP, use ublock. Far more lighter and faster.

    As with anything, each to their own I guess. Whether it works or not, people can use whatever works. Use an oiled up man if you want...

    90% of the services in the marketplace are crap, run by people that have no idea what they are doing.

    So, they see one person do it and they all follow right behind.

    T0mmy was the first to use bikini girls in banner ads. Now everyone does. There are also banners claiming 3,000 clients/USA awarded search agency (with no name of the agency - guess someone's mom gave them a gold star - does that count?)

    Some BST threads used a movie theme...now most do. (PS - someone needs to jump on the Entourage theme quick...that will be the summer hit. Come on, Vince, Johnny Drama, Turtle, and Ari Gold level SEO packages will sell like water in a desert).

    It's an easy way to weed out the people that are not creative and just follow the crowd. If they copy advertising techniques how good is the SEO they provide...because THAT is where you need to be creative (or just outsource to fiverr and make lots of moniiieezzzz).

    what's wrong OP? You don't like the hot ladies? Get yourself some adblock then!

    RKs thread actually makes zero sense lol I mean the biggest recurring companies online advertise and they advertise hard! Sex sells.. As mentioned above we have been using then for almost 2 years now and people associate speed rank with them.. Only sad thing is everyone has started to use them now too, as always no originality, but heh makes for nice browsing ;)
