  2. 2. Q2 2010AdoTube In-Video Ad Format IndexAdoTube serves ads on over 5k+ publishers sites and serves over 50MM to 75MM in-video ad impressions per week.This format index provides an overview of the effectiveness of our many different in-stream video ad formats over 2009, Q1 2010 and Q2 2010, with some preliminary Q3estimates.Procedure:We collected and analyzed data from a sample of 1.2 Billion impressions deemed tobe statistically relevant, taking advertising verticals, video content, and type oftargeting into account. This was then split into four distinct categories: Branded Overlay Interactive Overlay Standard Pre-Roll Polite Pre-Roll®Additional testing of Polite Pre-Roll vs Standard Pre-Roll was conducted as blind A/BTesting over 5 Campaigns.The following numbers are based on results derived from AdoTube’s Network only anddo not represent the in-video ad space as whole. © 2007-10 AdoTube, Inc. – All Rights Reserved 2
  3. 3. Key Takeaways The Power of Interactive Ads1. Interactive ad format grew from 12% to 33% of ads served by AdoTube from ‘09 to ‘102. The adoption of interactive ad formats has resulted in a significant increase of 59% in AdoTube’s overall average CTR from ‘09 to ‘103. Interactive overlays are 83% more effective at driving click-throughs than are branded overlays4. Testing showed that Polite Pre-Roll® viewers who are interested in an advertisement will be more likely watch through the entire ad and 133% more likely to click-through. Additionally, allowing viewers to hide the ad results in 36% lower abandonment rates for publishers5. Overall, CTR growth for standard pre-rolls has remained stagnant, but the CTR growth for Polite Pre-Roll® has risen dramatically as it has been rolled out. It is expected to jump 133% from Q2 to Q3 2010, becoming 63% higher than the standard pre-roll6. The Polite Pre-Roll® has shown a 7% higher retention rate, meaning that those who begin to watch a Polite Pre-Roll® ad are 7% more likely to watch through the whole ad. Additionally, those who choose to dismiss the ad are able to watch their video with overlay reminders, while those who leave a Standard Pre-Roll are abandoning the video stream as well © 2007-10 AdoTube, Inc. – All Rights Reserved 3
  4. 4. Diversification of Interactive FormatsAs we have continued to expand, we have been introducing interactive formats to helpdiversify in-video advertising opportunities. This has been good for both advertisers andpublishers as demonstrated by significant growth over the past number of months.On average, Interactive Formats (Polite Pre-Roll® and Interactive Overlay) have grownsteadily from 12% in 2009 to 33% of ads served so far in 2010.

  7. 7. A/B Testing ResultsStandard Pre-Roll vs. Polite Pre-Roll®While rolling out our Polite Pre-Roll® format, we worked with selectadvertiser to perform isolated A/B Testing over 30 million servings inorder to see how the less intrusive Polite Pre-Roll® stacks up againstthe Standard Pre-Roll. We found: While less viewers watched 25% of the Polite Pre-Roll® 3% more viewers actually chose to watch through the end of the ad Ad Format View-Thru Rate (25%) View-Thru Rate (100%) Polite Pre-Roll® 46.3% 37.1% Standard Pre-Roll 54.5% 36.0% The Polite Pre-Roll® has A 133% higher CTR.

  9. 9. Actual View-Through Rate:Standard Pre-Roll vs Polite Pre-Roll®While the number of Polite Pre-Rolls® served increases, we expect to see a closer view-through rate to our A/B testing. As for now, it is interesting to note that we are stillseeing a 7% higher retention rate on the Polite Pre-Rolls®. This showcases how thePolite Pre-Roll® is a better option to keep a viewer’s attention if they are interested inthe ad. Additionally, if a viewer decides to dismiss the Polite Pre-Roll®, they will still seeoverlay reminder messaging throughout the video. For standard pre-roll, a viewer whodoes not watch through all of the ad has generally left the video entirely.
