P1P Chats | A Conversation on the SEOmoz Rebrand

Editor’s Note: The opinions in this piece don’t necessarily reflect those of Page One Power as a company.

This isn’t a news piece. You can read about the Moz rebrand and get the news right from the source.

We’ve been talking about the change from SEOmoz to Moz all day at the office, so we figured we’d share our thoughts with you. This conversation between Cory Collins, my friend and colleague, and I was conducted via Google Docs. He sits in the cubicle right next to mine, so the hilarity is not lost on us. It’s just easier to put it down into words this way.

Industry Headlines: Mashable Says Social Media Ad Revenues to Double By 2016 [REPORT]

By , originally posted Monday, Nov. 26, 2012 via Mashable

Good news for those who believe social media advertising revenues will be crushed by mobile: A researcher is estimating that the category will double by 2016 to become a $9.2 billion business, in the U.S. at least.

BIA/Kelsey projects a 19.2% annual growth rate for the next four years for social media ads. The researcher believes that so-called native ads like Facebook’s Sponsored Stories and Twitter’s Promoted Tweets will lead the growth. Such native social advertising will grow from $1.5 billion in 2012 to $3.9 billion in 2016 for a 26% annual growth rate. BIA/Kelsey predicts that FacebookTwitter and others including StumbleUpon and Tumblr will be able to command higher prices for the formats.

Even the oft-derided social display ads — the ads you see on Facebook’s right-hand column or the banners on YouTube — will also grow from $3 billion in 2012 to $5.4 billion in 2016, which amounts to a compound growth rate of 15.2%.

The report’s sunny take contrasts a bit with a pervasive belief that the growth of mobile will torpedo overall ad revenues. For instance, Facebook’s stock fell as low as $17.55 after the company went public at $38 as investors punished the company for its perceived lack of ability to monetize its growing mobile audience. But even Google, which has anticipated the mobile revolution, has seen its average cost-per-click fall as mobile takes a bigger slice of the overall pie.
