    Interesting read, the article claims that a majority of people click mobile ads by mistake, costing advertisers tons of money for unintentional clicks.

    That's a good point of view. But they're getting traffic. It's up to the advertisers to convert them.

    HAhahahah Toatally true and the Biggest spammer for affiliates right now is ImBuzz . IMPO i Dont think Mobile marketing is smart for the cell companys or the phone makers Samsung HtC and the rest ..Advertising is cheezy no matter how its done. Thats why everyone makes a big deal out of Superbowl commercials. They want to watch them because they are new and crazy but nobody is waiting to see what MT Dew is going to text me next. And thats why Informative helpfull blogs make more money than Sales Pages..IMPO...:D

    Yep, the mobile platforms are a great scam right now, they pay out app developers and pubs by cpm and charge advertisers tons of accidental clicks by cpc.

    This is very true. I've accidentally clicked on ads while trying to scroll down a page. Sometimes it's an image ad and I don't realize it isn't static until I accidentally click on it and it opens another page.
