Banner advertising is the earliest form of online advertising having been around since 1994. While the web has changed dramatically since then, the banner ad has not. There are new sizes and formats that have increased the interactivity and provided new content opportunities within the banner space but the fundamental way the banner ad is sold and measured has not varied much in the last 19 years. Many marketers dismiss banner advertising as expensive and ineffective and in many instances they are correct. However, the problem is not with the ad format but rather the way we measure it.
