Ad network’s to get more money

There’s good news for ad-networks across the globe. A recent study conducted by Collective Media reports that 75% of the interactive agencies and advertisers who took the survey are looking at increasing their allocations to ad network by 5% while the remaining 25% said they would be looking at increasing it by 15%.

While the research is skewed towards the US , if trends are to believed then India should be looking at something similar. It will provide a respite while at the same time a further need for innovation within this domain in India. The Indian landscape is getting a bit crowded withe the number of players already on the scene though , all things taken into consideration, there are but 2-3 which can provide the scale and reach advertisers are looking for.

Google Acquires Doubleclick

Google has agreed to cough up close to 3.1 Billion USD to acquire Doubleclick , one of the which is heavily into display, video and banners ad’s.

The move is clearly an attempt by google to move into the promising display advertising arena and simultaneously create obstacles for Microsoft entering into online search. The merger of these 2 giants will undoubtedly provide humongous servings of inventory to advertisers across the globe.
