Infolinks in

MashableYesterday Mashable published an Infographic that Infolinks designed and we are very excited to share it with you. It is a brief history/timeline of advertising and its evolution. Starting off in ancient Egypt all the way to today’s methods of advertising on the worldwide web, some of the biggest and most interesting landmarks are documented on this fun and creative timeline.

Do you know that the first print ad was created in England, and it was for a prayer book? Or that the first official TV commercial was in 1941 for Bulova watches? Bet ya didn’t know that the first keyword ad was “golf”! The evolution of advertising has experienced milestones such as the printing press and television which impacted advertising format immensely. However, the internet has revolutionized advertising perhaps the most, and we believe that In-Text advertising is the next generation of advertising. So it was important to review where advertising began in order to better understand we are headed!

Check out the Infographic below and share it on your own site for your readers to enjoy! Don’t forget to add a link back to so they can learn more about the next generation of online advertising…
