The latest comScore data shows that AOL and newly acquired video-serving platform Adap.tv, combined, delivered 3.7 billion ad impressions in September. TechCrunch confirms that's the highest total ever recorded by comScore. YouTube, by contrast, generated 3.2 billion ad impressions last month while privately held BrightRoll ranked third with 2.8 billion impressions.
Should Google investors care about this "loss"? Not really. YouTube remains of the Web's most influential platforms, and a surprisingly effective mechanism for launching original programming. Google will keep profiting so long as that remains true, Tim says.
