Internet advertising revenues in the U.S. reached $9.26 billion for the third quarter of 2012, making the quarter the biggest on record, according to the latest IAB Internet Advertising Revenue Report figures released today by the Interactive Advertising Bureau and PwC US. These figures show an 18 percent climb year-over-year, in comparison to Q3 2011's $7.8 billion. In addition, they mark a 6 percent increase over the Q2 2012 figures of $8.72 billion.

Of the report, IAB President and CEO Randall Rothenberg said, "These historic investments in interactive point to the strong results that marketers are receiving from digital marketing. It is a highly effective medium for interacting and engaging consumers, who are no longer passive, but are active participants in contemporary media online, through social media, and on-the-go with mobile."

Will this growth continue? Will native advertising contribute to it? Mobile? Thoughts?
