AbstractThis study used spillover effects and reversal theory to examine the influence of banner advertising on the attitude of the host website. A total of 146 volunteers were recruited for an experiment. A computer program and an eye-tracking device were used to record and analyze participants’ eye movements, and a psychological scale was used to measure the participants’ attitudes. The results showed that the negative attitudes generated by banner advertising do spill over to the host websites, which in turn negatively affects the website. When viewers have negative attitudes toward the host websites, their fixation time and revisit intention of the websites will be significantly reduced. These findings encourage advertisers to plan advertising strategies and provide valuable implications for banner advertising and websites.
