Advertisements can help an owner make money from their websites, blogs or forums. But can actually putting advertisements on your site hurt revenue because people may find these advertisements annoying and leave your website? The thing is that I have visited several sites where they have overloaded the whole website with advertisements all over the place. It's sometimes hard to distinguish the actual content on the site from the advertisements. This is especially true for some download sites so I tend to leave that site straight away. Do you guys think advertisements can affect your views?
