Poll: Internet Users Recognize the Importance of Online Advertising and the Value of Self-Regulation

New Zogby survey reveals that users demand ad-supported content, value tools that enhance transparency and choice

WASHINGTON – November 5, 2013 – The more Internet users learn about the protections and choices available to them, the more comfortable they become with online interest-based advertising, according to a new poll conducted by Zogby Analytics on behalf of the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA).

Advertising Week 2015: Celebrate Competition & Content Diversity Made Possible by Responsible IBA

September 22, 2015

In our attention economy - where marketers compete for the attention of consumers - I'm struck how data collection for interest-based advertising (IBA) enables support for a wide range of small publishers and niche content providers, some of whom derive most or all of their income from ad network-supplied IBA.
