Blip videos ALWAYS show the same ads

Got issues with the main site, blogs, or forums?

I've been interrupted with literally the same ad THREE times in one video! I know this isn't your issue, but do you have any idea why Blip doesn't serve a wider variety of ads? It's really boring to have to watch the same one over and over, and Blip's support page is only for "producers"... :(

It's a personal conspiracy against you, they want to annoy you as much as they can because they're evil like that.

I believe for the most part, the types of ads you get are determined by your region.

Correct. Say, like, during political season (oh boy, here we go) you can expect to see ads of people running for governor or senator in your area, if not presidential campaigns. In North Dakota, since there was a clear-cut winner in the presidential race in that state, the only ads you'd see on YouTube were for either Heidi Heitkamp or Rick Berg in a senate race.

That's just one example. You could see stuff like an automotive dealership or whatever. It's all based on the region you live in. Some ads play more than others because they paid for more airtime, in more specific circumstances during a specific time slot. Yes, even on the Internet.

Hope that clears any confusion for ya!

Well, yeah, I figured they'd do location-aware ads. I'm just saying, on YouTube, for instance, I at least get a different ad each time one pops up. On Blip, I get the Same. One. Every. Time. Does Blip just not have all that big an advertiser network or something?

Probably not. Blip's heydey was years ago, and I imagine its ad pool isn't as strong as it once was.

Do they go to Blip, ISP, or a third-party advertising agency for something like that, though. Slightly curious.
