I filled out the survey, but I must say it was very bullish on the industry. There was no option for flat spending or declining spending. I mean, our company was bigger in 2005 than we were in 2004 but our spending on paid placement declined, because keyword prices declined. I really don't expect paid ad spending to rise in 2006 (although our billings will probably rise), but the survey didn't give that option. The lowest projection you could give was 10% increase.

Yep, this definition is lumping all the different types of service providers together in one, which imho clouds a lot of issues
