New research indicates that the ten biggest Internet firms took 99 per cent of gross online advertising revenue last year.
According to Marketspace findings seen by Ad Age, the top ten also attracted 70 per cent of total online ad outlays.

The Internet is basically a set of web pages linking to each other, and when search engines like Google decide how to prioritise sites in their search results, they take into account various factors.
