Niche Blog Friday: Ads Gone Bad March 19, 2010

This blog is hit or miss but as it is fairly new I think it shows great promise. I was led to this blog from Information Today, in an article discussing the inefficacy of online advertisements. What I found most interesting was exactly what this blog monitors – the humorous and unexpected results of ads based solely on textual content of the web page. As the about page states, “AdsGoneBad.com is a collection of bad contextual ads, poorly placed display ads, viral videos mocking ads, and anything else that makes media buyers, planners and anyone working in the online advertising industry just scratch their head and chuckle.” Check out the whole blog here.

I agree with your take on this blog – kind of hit or miss, but showing promise. I think it will improve in quality as it gains notoriety, and people start submitting ads gone bad. I like the concept, but it seems like something really hard to find enough good examples to populate an entire blog without a big team scouring the net for hours.

It’s kind of creepy how often these strange (mis)matches occur in my web wanderings. I don’t usually save my screen caps though!
