Watch Gossip Girls Online ( is another site crammed into posting episodes for a particular show, and judging by the look and url - this looks to be another site intending to drain every last dollar from fans of this particular show. To start off with the site is crammed with ads - banner ads, flash ads, fullscreen ads and in-video ads. The obvious point of the site is to drive some quick traffic to the episodes and reap rewards on the numerous ads being placed in front of the users eyes.

The videos listed all appear to work and are hosted on sites like ZShare, so they're reasonably fast but also suspect to be removed within a short amount of time. To the benefit of the site, they also provide alternate links to other video hosts carrying the episodes which is a good touch and the saving grace of this site. Some links were outdated or already dead which is important to note.

Navigating the site is difficult as there's no obvious or clean sign as to how to get to older episodes. Or at least it wasn't made obvious, it's a shame that the navigation wasn't easier on this site and also that the sheer number of ads on this site make it unusable, or else it would be quite decent.

Watch Gossip Girl Online tries to stuff one too many ads in your face, and while many of the episodes work - the lack of proper navigation really makes it difficult to use this site. Even if you manage to navigate the site, the sheer amount of banner ads, flash ads and in-video ads make it extremely annoying to use and load. The main reason this site fails is that they added fullscreen ads, which coupled with all the other ads make it unusable or just not worth visiting.
