The third quarter 2010 revenue estimates were announced today by the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) and PwC US.

This vibrant, innovative industry is creating jobs and contributing to the growth of the U.S. economy.”

“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 consumer behavior towards the internet and away from traditional media.”

Display advertising Plunges by 14%

Display advertising still battling » Adotas: "Total measured advertising expenditures in the opening quarter of 2009 plunged 14.2 percent versus a year ago, to $30.18 billion, according to TNS Media Intelligence.

This follows a 9.2 percent decline in Q4 2008 as the advertising recession accelerated in the new year. But, according to TNS, Internet display expenditures grew 8.2 percent as telecom, travel and local retail advertisers expanded their online marketing programs.

“The ad market declined significantly in the first quarter, overtaken by a collapsing economy which prompted consumers and marketers alike to shut their wallets and conserve,” Jon Swallen, SVP Research at TNS Media Intelligence, said in a statement. “While there are hopeful signs of general economic indicators bottoming out, the advertising sector still appears to be lagging behind. Available data from second quarter shows ad expenditures tracking on a comparable plane to recent months"

Microsoft test marketing " Self Serve Ads" to take on Google "Adsense"

It seems Microsoft is in tearing hurry these days. After the reports of Microsoft trying to take on page rank . Techcrunch reports that Microsoft has also started to test market one of its self serve advertising product.

The self serving marketplace is dominated by Google adsense and Yahoo Publisher network. For the uninitiated self serve advertising allows any publisher to run ads on their web properties without a need to a formal partnership program or a need of having a advertisement sales executive support.

The pilot project on which Microsoft is working is similar to Google AdSense is a very exclusive and limited beta program that lets third-party publishers add Microsoft's contextual ads next to their content.

reports that the pilot test marketing began on 21st July.

It remains to be seen how Microsoft tends to wean away adsense publishers which has been the undisputed ruler of self serving marketplace where web websites along with nondescript blogs compete with each other for the share of advertisement pie..

No word on how Microsoft will get more money to these sites than what is offered by Google today but they are not requiring exclusivity: “You may also use Microsoft ads on the same sites and pages as Google ads as long as you do not have a specific exclusivity agreement with them.

Putting ads on third parties is a controversial product, since advertisers expect the kinds of click throughs and conversions that they get from search. Earlier this week Google was sued for fraud because ads placed on parked pages weren’t producing results.

Microsoft has recently struck a few deals regarding contextual advertising, the latest one being with Rodale, the owner of various health, wellness, and fitness web properties.
