Google has begun the test for displaying adverts on the mobile version of its popular video sharing site YouTube.
The search engine behemoth is working to develop an apt mobile interface for the purpose, and purported that a number of users access YouTube through their mobile devices daily, however, most of them access using iPhones.
The company stated that it would run a test for showing ads on some selected pages of the YouTube mobile websites in Japan and the US.
YouTube’s mobile services were introduced in January this year, and allowed its users to share and enjoy the videos while on the move.
Product Marketing Manager for YouTube, Christine Tsai said, “This is our first step in testing the mobile advertising for YouTube – it will give you a new way to interact with content on the go”, and it would help the company in analysing the linkage between video viewers and advertising.
