Russian Internet Advertisers Ranked
The MindShare Interaction agency has calculated that $369 million was spent on advertising on the Internet in Russia in 2007, representing 97-percent growth. Automakers and cellular providers led the way, spending at least $2 million each. Those sums exclude VAT and creative and production costs. Contextual advertising (commercial links generated by a search engine) exceeded media ads (banners, pop-up windows and so on) $210 million to $159 million. MindShare Interaction is an Internet advertising agency with a 15-percent share of the market. It was acquired by the British WPP holding in 2006, although general director Dmitry Ashmanov retains a blocking package.
MindShare compiled a list of the top ten Internet advertisers for Kommersant. In the absence of a permanent independent monitoring agency, it used its own daily review of advertising on 120 websites. Budgets were calculated using official prices with a 30-35 percent discount calculated in.

The Video International analytical center estimated last September that Internet media advertising in Russia in 2007 would amount to 4.1 billion rubles (about $164 million, counting VAT) and ZenithOptimedia estimated it at 4.32 billion rubles (about $171 million, counting VAT). At Megfon, they estimate that the cost of Internet ads will rise 30 percent this year.
