I’ve seen a few ads where i was tricked. I thought i was clicking one thing, but instead found myself on a different web page. These tricky copycat ads are annoying, but guess what, it works. If you have a certain internet moral code you wish to follow, don’t read this post.
What are copycat ads? I guess copycat ads are any type of ad that resembles a different ad. Usually they’ll take the form of message boxes or video clips. Recently i’ve been noticing entrecard widgets that aren’t entrecard widgets. They got me. And the guy who designed the ad did a great job of tricking me. Very annoyed and i’ll probably not visit that site again, but hey, he got a click from me.
Entrecard has created a little chain dropping community. These chain droppers just keep clicking the widget and dropping cards. Why not have some fun and design an entrecard widget sized ad and link it to a porn site or something. Great practical joke! This won’t make you any money, but it’s pretty rock and roll if you ask me.
