Online ad spending continues to surge
Online advertising spending will increase 144% over the next five years, from $6.6 billion in 2003 to $16.1 billion in 2009, according to a forecast presented in late July by Jupiter Research Senior Analyst Gary Stein at the Jupiter/ClickZ Advertising Forum Conference & Expo 2004. Online advertising spending is expected to rise to $8.4 billion this year. Much of the increase is being fueled by paid search, which is projected to grow at a compound annual rate of 30% over the next two years. Display ads and online classified ads are projected to grow more than 25% over the same period. Stein predicted that by 2008, online ad spending will be about even with magazine ad spending and, by 2009, "it's going to pull ahead."
