U.S. Internet consumers favor targeted ads: Study

When asked whether they would rather see Internet ads for random or generic products and services, or ads for products and services that reflect their interests, the majority of Zogby survey respondents (40.5 percent) said they would rather see advertising directed toward their interests, while 16.1 percent said they would rather see ads for random products and services, and 27.6 percent said they would like both. The findings underscore the popularly held belief that many people still want serendipity in their content offerings, and not just news and information tailored to their preferences.
