As we have learned in the introduction lecture, ad banners are ignored but still induce costs. Performance decreases in presence of ad banners. As Jakob Nielsen found, there is another drawback: Users also ignore elements on a website that are relevant, but look like ads. (Relevance for the user, not the marketing department).
