Internet Advertising Terminology Guide
These terms and definitions are commonly used with the internet and particularly in regard to internet advertising:
Advertorial: A combination of ad and editorial typically found on content sites such as EB.
CPM (cost per thousand): The cost of 1,000 ad impressions. For example EB charges $25 per 1000 banner 468x60 impressions (with a minimum spend of $2,500 or 100,000 impressions).
Click-Through (ad click): The act of clicking a banner, or other ad, which links the user to the location of the advertiser's choice (typically the advertiser's Web site).
Clickthrough Rate: Sometimes referred to as "ad click rate," this is the percentage of ad views that resulted in an ad click (calculated by the number of clickthroughs and ad attracts divided by the number of page views - or impressions - x 100)
Content Sponsorship: An area of content sponsored as a distinct entity often by a single advertiser as opposed to banners rotating with individual advertising messages. Often the content will reflect the nature of the advertiser as well as the nature of the target demographic.
Cookies: Electronic ID tags sent from a Web server to a user's browser to track and record their Web-surfing patterns, i.e., ads clicked on, products purchased, sites visited and the user's origin. This can enable the site to provide more personalized information to be served upon a return visit to the site.
Eyeballs: The number of people who see an ad or web page.
Flash Ad - a format of internet advertising which can be implemented on banner, leaderboard, medium rectangle etc - usually gives the ad greater scope for creativity and art direction (other format includes GIF/Animated Gif)
GIF / Animated GIF (Graphic Interchange Format): The most common file compression format for banner ads and most other pictures on the Web. An animated GIF is created by combining multiple GIF images in one file. The result is multiple images, displayed one after the other that gives the appearance of movement. Research indicates that animated banners are more effective than static banners, generating higher ad awareness, recall, and click-through.
Impressions: Number of times an internet advertisement is downloaded and then seen by web site visitors.
Neilsen (AC Neilsen Netratings) - an international 3rd party internet site measurement company whose methodology of web site traffic is considered internet standard worldwide. (EB subscribes to AC Neilsen Netratings and quotes our site traffic according to their statistics)
