I know you posted this a month ago, but if you are there, here are the facts from my own advertising click revenues. Keep in mind that I cannot get anywhere close to 100% fill rate on Google's admob video ads, so I have to mix in text and image ads. The ads play before a game level loads -- initially I was hoping to make money on impressions, not clicks.
Pure image ads: 14.2 cents a click. 3.6% click rate, 28.2% of my impressions, 12.4% of my revenues.
Pure text ads: 19.4 cents a click. 6.7% click rate, 54.4% of my impressions, 61.4% of my revenues.
Horrible Admob youtube video ads: 6.9 cents a click. 3.4% click rate, 9.3% of my impressions, 19% of my revenues.
2% of my revenue comes from impressions, 98% from clicks.
I tried full screen 15 second video ads using other companies like Millennial Media. The fill rate was 40% even in the US, they paid about 4 cents a click, and almost $0 for impressions.
Maybe video IS the future, but no one is paying for it -- fill rates are terrible, and nothing is paid for views (impressions).
I'm not short GOOG but, I will extend my congratulations to those who are. You are right. In my opinion,
the stock should be priced a little under $250.
That was based on Fed QE. All asset prices went in on direction now market is adjusting to the fundamentals. World needs lower oil prices to stimulate the growth. Not every country is at liberty to print the money like us.

Raystock reiterated his downgrade of Johnboy2680 today. For the record he stated that "no one likes an uninformed liar such as Johnboy2680 and we therefore suggest that you discard him as you would all rubbish". Raystock went on to claim that the only people who profit from Johnboy2680's advice are those who do the opposite of what he recommends that one do.
