We have all heard about banner blindness. Are low click rates evidence that display ad campaigns have not had any impact on consumer behavior? Or, does online display advertising work in a similar way to traditional offline advertising with multiple exposures over time being needed to effect a change in consumer behavior?

comScore released a new study examining the effects of display advertising in Europe.
