The Economic and Cognitive Costs of Annoying Display Advertisements
December 01, 2014
In the online display advertising industry, advertisers pay publishers (websites) to run display ads that users (website visitors) see alongside other content. Online display ads are graphic images that can vary in size, shape, animation, duration, and more. Display advertising is a large industry. In 2012, display-related ads garnered revenues of more than $12 billion in the United States, or 33% of total online advertising revenue (Interactive Advertising Bureau [IAB] 2013, p. 12). Online advertising itself brings in approximately as much revenue as broadcast television and more revenue than cable television, radio, and newspaper advertising (IAB 2013, p. 18). On mobile devices, display ads are predicted to soon overtake search ads (Gartner Inc. 2013). Many of the world's most popular web destinations, such as Google, Facebook, CNN.com, and Yahoo!, are almost entirely funded by advertising, much of it display advertising. Online display ads are often annoying. So many people want to avoid seeing online advertisements that there have been more than 200 million downloads of one ad blocker alone.1 From an economic perspective, these annoying display ads are interesting because they can both make and cost money for publishers. They make money directly because advertisers pay publishers to run ads. They can cost money indirectly when annoyed users abandon a site, leaving the publisher with less traffic and ultimately less advertising revenue.
