See, even a video I was just watching on Youtube just now, the guy said:

> THanks for Surf Shark for sponsoring this video, it keeps the content free.

So that basically tells me that Google™ advertising on Youtube™ is utter bullshit. I have a funny feeling they're (Google™'s) crack-down on ad-blocker is just an internal reaction to a losing battle with their ad revenue streams in the declins from their ad business.

----

As an aside @movq and I were yarning about this before... The reason this form of advertising works so well is "brand awareness". There's some interesting content, and you don't mind that the guy or gal is sponsored by some company and they happen to make mention of it and even go into a special part of their video (_without being annoying about it_). You don't even fast forward or anything because you already like their voice, and they're not being completely obnoxious about what they're promoting, and what they're promoting isn't complete garbage, malware or worse.

I'm willing to get that Google™ is losing ad revenue from sponsored advertising and sponsors of Youtubers.

@prologic I always aggressively jump over this stupid shit and never listen to it. That means I might miss some actual good stuff right after the garbage they advertise. But I'm not willing to seek back.

That sounds like a plausible explanation to me. (Then again, I have little insight into how “making money on YouTube” works. 😅)

Like @lyse, I skip these sections immediately, unless it’s just one or two sentences. If it’s too long, I might just close the tab right away. 🤷
