NBC and Yahoo are two top winners in the Olympic Game because more and more people move their behavior to see online video.” Yahoo’s Olympics site averaged 4.7 million unique visits each day through Aug. 18, according to Nielsen Online. NBC, owned by General Electric (GE), had 4.2 million in the same period, says Nielsen, which tracks Web site traffic.” It means if any firms do their advertising on these two website, there are more than 4 million people see these advertising each day.

Next year, growth will slow even more, to 14.5%.” The eMarketer senior analyst David Hallerman says that the economy problem due to online advertising will not grow in fast recently.
