Linage for January was down 33.2% compared with January of last year; linage for January of last year was down 24.2% compared with January 2000. Technology advertising was down 40.9% last month, primarily due to advertising declines in computer software, b-to-b e-commerce and personal computers. Financial advertising linage for The Wall Street Journal declined 49.6%, compared with a decrease of 8.1% in January of last year, due to continued softness in wholesale and retail, including advertising from mutual funds, tombstone ads and bank advertising.
