Blog is short for Web log. Blogs are publicly
available web pages,
with personal views and links expressing
the opinions and observ-
ations of a particular person, usually on
a specific topic or theme and

the personality of the author.
Blogs are online diaries/news forums that
feature links to news items
and stories from across the Internet’s World

to a web site from users
who saw (viewed) ads promoting the site

and message will impact
the user to visit a site at a later point
in time versus at the moment the
ad is served on a page. Many advertisers
that are tracking ROI based
on “views” versus clicks are finding views
can generate a much higher
ROI on a desired activity.
