IAB 2016 Digital Ad Spending

There was an interesting report released by AIB Europe in late June where it showed the meteoric rise of digital spending across Europe in 2016. The topline was that digital spending in Europe grew by 12% in 2016 compared to 2015m with the market now worth €41.9 billion per annum. The big mover was “mobile display” which grew by 53% in the year and it accounts for 33% of the ‘display’ market.…

ABC E Numbers December 2013

Interesting numbers from the ABC, but this time it’s their ‘e’ numbers. Ever since The Sun went behind the paywall, with moderate success, we’ve kept an eye on web traffic for The Mirror to see how it fairs without that competition.

They’ve had a decent month breaking through the 2m mark, but still a good bit to go catching up with the Guardian and The Mail. But there was some buried information in the ABC release.…

It slipped into the ABC email, hoping to remain unnoticed perhaps. But along with the monthly ABC’s was the website audit for independent.ie for August 2013.

Unfortunately this audit is not directly comparable to their previous audit as the sites under scrutiny are different.…

Irish Online Newspaper Readership

I normally keep a tighter rein on the outpourings of comscore, but have been sadly remiss of late and missed two gems from an Irish perspective- it’s a sad reflection that we have to look to a US based organisation to get some solid figures on Ireland.

The research was conducted in September 2013 and shows that eight out of ten Europeans visited News & Information site in September. The Nordic countries lead the way taking the top three spots, followed then by Ireland with 96% of Irish internet users visiting a News & Information site that month. It interesting to note that we are passionate about news consumption - so long as it’s free!…

Comreg Data 2013 q2

The latest Comreg statistics were released and as usual, throw up an array of data, too much to be all consumed here, but for a quick scan of the numbers I have taken out some of the salient points.

As with the data every quarter some of the numbers can be a little confusing, solely down to the rules pertaining to the data collection. For example we have a mobile penetration of 118% in Ireland (more mobiles than every man, woman and child in the country).
The reasons for that is that they are based on SIMS which are also used in mobile broadband and the way the data treats 'live connections' with a connection still considered live three months after cancellation.…

Stuck in the ABC data yesterday was the web data for rte.ie and interesting reading it makes. The audit is for October 2012 and we have comparative data for October 2011.

The state broadcasters site is visited on average by 443,000 unique browsers (roughly equivalent to people) every day and 4.…

Rise in Tablet Usage in Ireland

News research from Eircom under the eircom Household Sentiment Survey(eHSS) shows an absolute trend in terms of smartphones and tablets.

They estimate that the penetration of Smartphones is currently at 50% of the population, which is slightly at odds with the figures released by ComReg in March. They estimate that there are roughly about 2.3m smartphones connected in ireland, whereas the eHSS have this figure at 1.…

Tablet adoption in Ireland

Some of the great theories in economics (and finance) are predicated on caveats that allow the theory to be conclusive, but in reality would not necessarily be the case. Take for example the theory of the Capital Assets Pricing Model (if you haven’t heard of it you can thank yourself lucky). One of the pillars of the original theory is that all “players” in the market share the same information! Yes, indeed.…

The October RTE web stats dropped in today showing that the broadcaster had a 6% rise in daily traffic over the year although its daily page impressions were down close to two percent- more volume, slightly less engagement. But, on average each person looks at about eight pages per visit.   

Curiously, their streams were down substantially, with the average daily AV plays dropping 34% in the year.…

Latest data from Comscore shows the state of the Internet in the European region.  It shows that in the European region nearly 400m people went online in June 2012 and spent, on average, just shy of 26 hours online during the month.

In our own case, Ireland had 2.8m people online in June 2012 who spend on average just over 20 hours online.…
