  • Targeting the ads to a shadowy Internet population and measuring the success of ads is challenging because failure of a banner ad has many overlapping causes. Sources of failure are: poor design, poor placement on Web page, poor choice of Web site for placement, poor choice of Web pages within a Web site for placement, poor dynamic qualities with respect to repeated page views, poor customization tying banner ad to Web site where placement occurs, and inadequate oversight by the hosting Web site. Seasoned Web surfers grow weary of banner ads that disguise themselves as interactive components of a Web page, for example, offering multiple-choice answers to a question, only to have an interactive click result in being transported to another Web site.
