The Digital Advertising Market


So how many of these billions are yours?

How Google Makes Its Money


Online Vs. Print Ads

So what do you guys think?In your experience which brings better business?Or does that depend on the product/service or the customers?


Here’s a nice bit of multi-faceted irony for you: On Thursday, Canada’s Globe and Mail newspaper ran a print ad for Google’s (directly competitive) search advertising business.

You know who needs a haircut? People searching for a haircut,” the ad reads. “Maybe that’s why ads on Google work.”

The ad was tweeted by media reporter Steve Ladurantaye with the caption, “An ad for Google ads in today’s Globe demonstrates the value of print ads, yes?”

Google’s ad ran in both the Globe‘s print and digital editions, as well as in the National Post, the Globe‘s main competitor, Ladurantaye tells us.

Impolite, funny, probably overdue.

Inc. magazine tagged Mr. Cashmore — 26 and with a net worth estimated as high as $95 million — as “the Brad Pitt of the blogosphere.” Gawker called him “the planet’s sexiest geek.” He currently sees Lisa Bettany, a photographer and entrepreneur. And like a matinee idol, he has a sultry air that has even become an in-joke among techies. An anonymous Twitter account called @hotpetecashmore is dotted with tweets like “Am I the only one feeling hot, hot, hot tonight? — Pete.” But Mr. Cashmore did not make it on his looks. He started Mashable in his bedroom in Aberdeen, Scotland,at age 19, and for a time some tech insiders joked that he was the “Loch Ness Blogger,”because so few in tech circles had actually laid eyes on him. Those days are over. Mashable now attracts more than 20 million visitors a month, and this year, Mr. Cashmore made Time’s list of the 100 most influential people, as well as the Forbes “30 Under 30” list.
