    I am not suprised by the increase in percentage, as i think that online advertising is in some way different to the main advertisments on the TV.
    I think this because online you can find totally different websites than you see on TV and they sometimes seem to be cheaper than the shops you would usally see in citys and towns.
    That price online might be just right for most people.
