I guess if your an uninformed person that only gets their "reviews" from ads then you may buy a lot because of ads but I think most people here research everything from toasters to headphones to cars to CPUs. So they are not that effective to us.
Ads usually have a low 2% rate of clicking and even less sales, but they are effective at creating the brand awareness. For example I didn't know G.Skill existed until I saw an ad on HWC, I've done some research and now all my PCs have G.Skill installed, but I didn't click on the ad.
