Ad spend shifts from print media to Internet

According to statistics published today by the Interactive Advertising Bureau and Pricewaterhouse Coopers, revenue from online advertising rose to a new high in the first quarter of 2011. Internet ads for the quarter materialized $7.3 billion, a 23% rise over the first quarter last year. The number is a slim drop from the fourth quarter of 2011, which saw $7.45 billion in online ads. Still, the increase over Q1 2010 highlights the return of digital ad spending after the recession, as well as the lasting shift of ad money from print media to the Internet.
