AdoTube serves ads on thousands of publishers sites, serving 65MM to 90MM in-video ad
impressions per week.
This format index provides an overview of the effectiveness of our many different in-stream
video ad formats over 2009, Q1 2010, Q2 2010, Q3 2010, and Q4 2010.
We collected and analyzed data from a sample of over 3.5 Billion impressions deemed to be
statistically relevant, taking advertising verticals, video content, and type of targeting into
account. This was then split into four distinct categories:
•  Branded Overlay
•  Interactive Overlay
•  Standard Pre-Roll
•  Polite Pre-Roll®
Additionally, we broke these results out over 17 different verticals to analyze performance on
an industry by industry basis.
The following numbers are based on results derived from AdoTube’s Network only and do not
represent the in-video ad space as whole.

From 2009-2010, the number of ads served grew 191% to 3.5 billion ads total. The
number of campaigns served in 2010 grew 281%. This growth was propelled by both
returning advertisers, as well as a large influx of new advertisers. Advertisers leveraged
AdoTube’s engaging formats, along with targeting and optimization tools to lower the
overall number of ads needed to be served per campaign by targeting.

As the overall pie grew, Pre-Rolls lost their dominance falling in Q4 to 30% of ads
served. In their wake, newer Interactive Formats have grown explosively, and now
account for 50% of ads served. The most surprising story to come out of Q4 is the
bounce back of the Branded Overlays, which rose back up to a healthy 20% of ads

While interactive formats continue to grow in prominence, engagement rates have
tended to stay steady at a phenomenal 21.6%. Even as they have saturated inventory,
1 in 5 viewers still seem ready to engage. By simply being in the video stream,
engagement rates are 7 times higher than similar rich media display benchmarks.

Standard  Pre-­‐Rolls,  where  15  second  spots  filled  60%  of  Pre-­‐Rolls  served.

 Q4 saw the start of a big shift and a broadened base of verticals investing in Online Video
Advertising. CPG made a huge push along with new entrants such as Travel, Fashion, & Finance.
Even though Entertainment and Electronics verticals ran more campaigns in 2010 than 2009, their
overall percentage fell dramatically year/year due to the addition of newer verticals.

This highlights how Online video itself has broadened its audience base beyond young male techies
to a burgeoning ecosystem of viewers with advertisers eagerly following.
