Top 10 Online Advertisers according to Nielsen/NetRatings

Nielsen/NetRatings compiled a webads spendings ranking thanks to data provided by AdRelevance. Though Nielsen/NetRatings´ last podcasting/blogging/advertising .pdf report legitimately provoked a little uprise amongst bloggers (see for instance: Loic Le Meur, Robert Scoble, Frank Barnako) for its lack of podcasting spirit acumen, I believe several things were rather interesting in this release.

What I´d like to point out to show not only crap is issued in Nielsen/NetRatings´ last podcasting/blogging/advertising .pdf report is its interesting Top 10 Advertisers by Estimated Spending table. Not that I feel like analyzing which kind of company would be most likely to waste its marketing budget online, but I believe Nielsen NetRatings´table lacked a Cost per Impression column. So I added it:

What may be drawn down from this table is that online advertising campaigns are largely optimizable: for instance, NextTag spends 10% more than Skype in online promotion, but generates about 3 times the impressions Skype advertising campaigns do. These are undoubtedly figures e-advertising professionals should study thoroughly to make sure they understand the way online spendings ROI could be optimized.


  • Jeremy, it seems you're reading the report a bit wrong. The 54:31 min number for Google says that on average, in June 2006, one of the 96,785,000 unique visitors, spent a bit over 54 minutes (not seconds) on Google's various sites or applications (not only the basic search page, but including, I believe, for example, gmail and gtalk too).

  • Many thanks Kari, you´re totally right. I removed my Time Spent on Websites analysis which appeared, thanks to your comment, to be unaccurate. I apologize to my fellow readers for the inconvenience.
