100 Billion Ads Served: Major Landmark For AdMob

100billion.jpgAdMob, one of the pioneering companies in mobile advertising, passed a major milestone last week, serving its 100 billionth mobile ad.

Having launched just 3 years ago, this is a sign of the explosive growth that mobile advertising has undergone.

AdMob’s, vice president and managing director, Thomas Schulz, said: ‘100 billion ads served is an exciting milestone for AdMob as a company, but also testament to the fact that the mobile phone is now becoming a mainstream advertising medium.’

AdMob has changed and grown a lot of the past, and in some respects, their growth has been a mirror of the key trends and changes in the industry:

  • focusing on banner ads in 2007,
  • adding a mobile analytics product in 2008,
  • aggressively supporting the use of iPhone apps for marketing starting in 2008, and
  • adding special support for the Android platform in 2009.

The AdMob network now includes over 7,000 mobile sites, and over 2,500 mobile applications.
