For those who came in late, Display advertising is advertising on the internet that appears alongside content on web pages in many forms, shapes and sizes varying anywhere from plain text to rich interactive multi-media banners. These ads are “published” on websites with the intent of inducing a reaction from the user (in the form of clicks, interaction with the banner or simply gathering attention) that will eventually benefit the advertiser.
