What always irritated me was bloggers that would post a stock photo before any post.  I don't mind if it's a photo taken by the author that relates to the post, but something obviously stock is just daft.  But for a couple of years it seemed like that is what bloggers did.  Seems to have died out or I'm hanging with a different crowd.


(Remind me to tell you what I think about ads in the middle of an article sometime.)

I believe videos have a slightly negative valuation by many/most? visitors.
I think it depends on why people visit a site. What task are they trying to complete?

Video & music dominate entertainment. But in terms of just getting specific goals accomplished they can certainly get in the way. That said, many product sales pages have review videos & even things like buying a boat or such could be seen as lower risk if a person can get a video of watching the thing run, a walkthrough tour of the boat to see its condition, etc.

I hate videos. I've lately figured out I need to dial it back as I'm spending 15 minutes looking for a text answer instead of watching youtube for 2 mins.
