YouTube starts mobile ads in US and Japan (no word on Canada yet)

YouTube started running display ads on select pages of the YouTube mobile site in the U.S. and Japan. Another revenue stream to generate cash and increase their mobile market share. This is our first step in testing mobile advertising for YouTube  – it will give you a new way to interact with content on the go, while allowing us to learn how video viewers engage with mobile advertising. YouTube for mobile continues to grow exponentially, and today, people watch hundreds of millions of YouTube videos every month on mobile devices.” Now that the iPhone, Instinct and Diamond are here perhaps a Canadian date will soon follow.
