Gmail Tests a Huge Image Ad

Who would have expected to see a giant image ad on Gmail’s sign out page? For now, it’s just an experiment and it’s displayed when you log out from Gmail, but I bet that Gmail users won’t be happy to see it when it will no longer be an experiment. After all, one of the great things about Gmail was that the ads were relevant and unobtrusive. The huge ad for Vistaprint is not relevant and it’s really obtrusive.

“With Gmail, you’ll never see pop-ups or untargeted banner ads. Instead we display text ads and related links you might find useful and interesting.” This was one of the 10 reasons to try Gmail, but it was removed from this page.
