If We All Paid THIS MUCH, We Could Have the Internet With No Ads

Posted August 22nd, 2014 @ 5:41am


Pretty much every website you go to is jammed with ads . . . and while we've all gotten GREAT at ignoring them, the video ads that play or block what you're trying to read are impossible to avoid.


So . . . would you be willing to pay $168 to make them go away?


Last year, advertisers in the U.S. spent $42.8 billion on Internet ads, and there were approximately 254.3 million Americans on the Internet.  That means the average American web user is worth $168 to advertisers.


In a new survey, 98% of people say . . . no, they wouldn't pay $168 to have the Internet ad-free.


The survey also found 63% skip the ads before YouTube videos as quickly as possible and 16% use an ad blocker.
