Video Ads Audience on the Rise

Video Ads


How many video streaming and video sharing sites can take pride in being among the world’s top ten sites one year after they launch? Not many, so VEVO has a lot to celebrate. The site, available only to users from the US and Canada, is a music video website – joint venture between Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, and Abu Dhabi Media, and with EMI licensing its content to the group without taking an ownership stake.

comScore ranked VEVO third in the US, after Google and Yahoo sites, with an audience of 50.6 million viewers in December. AOL, Inc. maintained the fourth position with 48.6 million viewers, followed by Viacom Digital with 45.9 million.

More than 84.6 percent of the U.S. Internet audience viewed online video, and video ads accounted for 16.4 percent of all videos viewed – an amazing number, showing a clear trend in online advertising shifting from traditional campaigns, to a richer media.
