Well seeing as it is so very easy to accidentally click on ads particularly if you use a trackpad or they are designed to deliberately catch you out, click through rate may not always be that relevant. However apposite ads such as for cigars on a cigar review site or bikes on a bike review site are certainly going to get deliberate click throughs as they are the people who want to buy that product, so they make perfect sense.
The Google ads that advertise what you have already bought or searched out or even simply glanced once by mistake a month ago however are simply irritating. And Adsense ads can be very inappropriate at times too with a car ad appearing on an anti car blog say. Ads do make Google a fortune though.

So do the ads make decent money for your cigar site then, as that's where they should work very well.

Indeed Internet ads work. Companies like Epson and Phase wouldn't advertise here if they didn't. There is a direct financial correlation. Do you imagine that the people who run corporations are that stupid?

I'm certainly not saying there isn't money to be made by running ads or that I am against it on LuLa. I'd simply run an ad blocker if it was an that much of an issue.
But I do doubt their usefulness at times, Google ads with or maybe because of all their tracking seem to consistently advertise the wrong products to me.
Phase One would be daft not to advertise on LuLa as this is where a lot of people who are interested in Phase One hang out. Deciding whether their ads on here make the difference between buying a camera or not is the tricky part.

Hmm, let me think... Yes, I actually do think they are stupid. Here is a link from Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_business_failures with a long list of business failures.

Good point. My experience of people in boardrooms [of multinationals] is that they seem more like children squabbling in the schoolyard at times, than smart grown ups.
