Online Ad Spending Expected to Rebound 10.8% in 2010

Fueled by a quicker-than-expected uptick in the U.S. economy, U.S. online ad spending is expected to rise 10.8% to $25.1 billion this year, according to a new forecast from eMarketer.

The firm’s previous estimate in December had forecast just a 5.5% increase. “Relatively healthy economic gains, along with the ongoing shift of marketing dollars from traditional to digital media, have contributed to the double-digit increase,” the firm wrote in the report.

Large search engines are projected to garner 58.5% of all online ad spending this year, with online video advertising to account for a third of the new incremental ad spending expected to surface through 2014.
