Neither am I, but they make money right along from them. Same as here, and I rarely click on an ad here.
Yes ad impressions earn them money and it doesn't matter if you don't buy! Furthermore, not everyone can afford two things such as a computer and a cellphone. The easiest and cheapest way to get people online is through mobile and google dominates that too with youtube, maps, search, and email! The next billion people to get online are more likely to get online via mobile than on a desktop. Also because android is everywhere even with cheaper models and cheaper tablets and people have access to everything they basically need such as surfing, facebook, pictures, youtube and general usage. A computer is overkill for many people who just use it for very basic typical fun use especially senior citizens, uneducated people and kids.
