TOKYO: Online advertising measurement service AdRelevance, a service from Nielsen//NetRatings, has set up shop in Japan. Its first analysis of the medium discloses a buoyant market - worth ¥19.2 billion ($161.0m; €128.6m; £86.5m) in September alone.

NNR notes that during the month, around 3,000 online display ad campaigns were run, consisting of almost 6,500 thousand banners from 1,254 advertisers. Beauty products were the highest spending sector, closely followed by the food industry, with financial securities and investment lagging in third place.
