I am planning of creating a free software in upcoming months. I also wants to monetize my advertise my software by different forms of advertisements. These are:
A) PPC advertisement on web site: This will be much like Google Adsense for websites
B) PPC advertisement on software downloader : This will be much like Cnet spotinstall and one will display one or two ads during the software download.
C) Advertising through software module: This will be much like OpenCandy.
No, more ads will be displayed during software running. So, my question is how the user will react to these ads. Will the user feel them annoying? Does this make my software a adware? Are chances are high that user will abort download be seeing ads in the download manager?
