| 1 Comment

United States Internet advertising revenues hit $6.4 billion in the third quarter of 2010, representing the highest quarterly result ever for the online advertising industry and a 17 percent increase from the same period in 2009. The third quarter 2010 revenue estimates were announced Wednesday by the Interactive Advertising Bureau and PricewaterhouseCoopers Media. "Advertisers are shifting more of their brand messaging online, accounting for this welcome surge in a difficult economy," said David Silverman, a partner at PwC. "This trend reflects the accelerating shift in consume behavior towards the Internet and away from traditional media," added Silverman.
