Web Display Ads Attract Fewer Clicks
The New York Times report here on a recent study, by the research firm comScore, that found that the proportion of American Internet users clicking on display ads at least once a month fell to 16 percent from 32 percent over the 20-month period ending in March. And on top of that, just half of those clickers accounted for the overwhelming majority of all clicks on display ads.
