Excessive Ads in the newspaper that looks effective

If you are reading the online version of the major newspapers in our country, you would surely fall to a clickbait trap. The format of the homepage are in squares or rectangles for the headlines of the news items. But mixed in the squares are also some ads that are in squares that you will mistake for a news report.

The newspaper with the largest circulation earns so much from the paid ads considering the many readers would click on the “sponsored” ads that are mixed with the news headlines. There’s also a pop-up sometimes and all secondary web pages have more ads. It makes me wonder if the newspapers are now earning more from the ads than when there was no online version yet.
