In the case of cost per mille/click, the publisher is not concerned about whether a visitor is a member of the audience that the advertiser tries to attract and is able to convert, because at this point the publisher has already earned his commission. This leaves the greater, and, in case of cost per mille, the full risk and loss (if the visitor cannot be converted) to the advertiser.
Smartphones will grow the second fastest, at a 9 percent CAGR (increasing by a factor of 1.6). Connected TVs (which include flat-panel TVs, set-top boxes, digital media adapters [DMAs], Blu-ray disc players, and gaming consoles) will grow next fastest at 7 percent CAGR, to 3.2 billion by 2022. PCs will continue to decline (a 2.5 percent decline) over the forecast period. However, there will more PCs than tablets throughout the forecast period and by the end of 2022 (1.2 billion PCs vs. 790 million tablets).
This initial estimation of potential IPv6 traffic is based on the assumptions that IPv6 device capability, IPv6 content enablement, and IPv6 network deployment will keep pace with current trends and may even accelerate during the forecast period. Considering the interdependence of these variables, forecast assumptions could be subject to refinement as our analysis continues.
Cost per mille requires only that the publisher make the advertising available on his or her website and display it to the page visitors in order to receive a commission. Pay per click requires one additional step in the conversion process to generate revenue for the publisher: A visitor must not only be made aware of the advertisement but must also click on the advertisement to visit the advertiser's website.
In addition to the Internet Health Report, several major Internet backbone providers have Web sites that post hourly or more frequent statistics on how fast data is travelling on their backbone lines and the percentage of data packets that are being lost. Our table summarizes these sites, the information they provide, and how often they are updated.
There were a total of 864 breaches with a total of nearly 34.2 million records exposed as of the month of September in 2018. The number of records exposed per data breach averaged 39,554 year-to-date in 2018, according to 2018 Identity Theft Resource Center, with the highest number of records exposed in the business category. Average cost of a lost or stolen record continues to increase, according to the IBM Security and Ponemon Institute 2018 Cost of Data Breach Study and it is globally $148 in 2018 compared to an average of $141 in 2017. The extensive use of IoT devices increased cost by $5 per compromised record. The United States and Canada have the highest per capita costs of data breaches, at $233 and $202. India and Brazil have the lowest per capita costs, at $68 and $67 respectively.
As in the case of mobile networks, video devices can have a multiplier effect on traffic. An Internet-enabled HD television that draws 2 hours of content per day from the Internet would generate as much Internet traffic as an entire household today. With the growth of video viewing on smartphones and tablets, traffic from these devices is growing as a percentage of total Internet traffic. Share of PCs to total global Internet traffic will decline to 19 percent by 2022, down from 49 percent in 2017. Smartphones will account for 50 percent of total global Internet traffic by 2022, up from 23 percent in 2017 (Figure 5).
Some merchants run their own (in-house) affiliate programs using dedicated software, while others use third-party intermediaries to track traffic or sales that are referred from affiliates. There are two different types of affiliate management methods used by merchants: standalone software or hosted services, typically called affiliate networks. Payouts to affiliates or publishers can be made by the networks on behalf of the merchant, by the network, consolidated across all merchants where the publisher has a relationship with and earned commissions or directly by the merchant itself.
