Online advertising is a fickle thing. It accounts for 20% of the ad industry’s total spending, and over 90% of revenue for the internet giants Google and Facebook. That said, no one seems to have any idea whether it actually works.
That uncertainty reached a new high this week, as Google announced that 56.1% of ads served on the internet are never even “in view”—defined as being on screen for one second or more. That’s a huge number of “impressions” that cost money for advertisers, but are as pointless as a television playing to an empty room.
This is not a big revelation. The web metrics company ComScore reported last year that 46% of online ads are never seen. Spider.io, an ad fraud company acquired by Google in February, has pointed out that a large portion of ads are “viewed” only by robots, revealing that one botnet of 120,000 virus-infected computers viewed ads billions of times, running up the tab for advertisers without offering them the human eyeballs they sought.
Still, the acknowledgement by a heavyweight such as Google that ad viewability is a problem could shake up the industry by delaying possible IPOs of ad companies and requiring new ways for advertisers to gauge the effectiveness of their ads.
The nineteenth-century retailer John Wanamaker famously said, “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted. The trouble is I don’t know which half.” In this case, it’s the obviously the half that pays for ads which are never seen, and now advertisers are looking for new tools to figure out which those are.
It’s worth noting that Google made this acknowledgement of the deficiency of the model it has profited richly from while also offering a new model to advertisers: In July it introduced its Active View product, which measures only viewed ads.
GIC Rates : the online destination place for the best rate around. Guaranteed Investment Certificates. The Canadian GIC Market is worth over 730 billion and is a money maker for top banks. A recent study shows that the average account is worth over $60,000.00 and the majority of assets are with big banks at low rates. The review in Money Magazine explains that most people are getting burned when they turn to the safety portion of what should be a balanced portfolio. GIC is the bread and butter of the major banks in Canada.
This will all change by perception and over time. The highest rates paid are from some of the smallest companies, trusts, credit unions, caisse populaires and near banks. Few people know this and fewer people take advantage of it and stick to the big banks and pad their pockets and lessen their own.
It’s perception and decepti0n; how long will it be until there is an even playing field and a more efficient marketplace. Those that need to step up, monitor and manage this metamorphosis are still sleeping at the switch. The independent deposit broker will change the way things happen just like the mortgage broker used to be the lender of last resort and now is the go to facilitator.
GIC rates will become more and more competitive when the banks realize they are losing market share with the same old low rates when new and secure institutions will give out better rates for more and better business. The public will lose millions in lost interest in the meantime as the banks have no interest in marketing this GIC Industry Secret.
MONEY Tip: Use a registered deposit broker and get the best rate around for a personal or business investment account.
