In the first six months of 2017, online ads paid for by the provincial government generated $2.5 million in revenue for Alberta’s government.
Online advertising costs were $2 million.
That’s the second-highest monthly increase since 2010, according to data from the Alberta government’s online advertising department.
That’s also the first time in nearly two decades that the province’s online ad revenue has surpassed provincial government revenue.
The province is expected to receive more than $3.4 million in federal funding this year for online advertising.
The provincial government says online advertising is the fastest-growing revenue source for the province.
The province has had to deal with an increasing number of advertisers that have switched to other platforms.
The Alberta government says the average cost per month for an ad on the provincial site is $1.67.
For the federal government, that number is $3 for a three-minute ad.
For 2017, Alberta’s online ads generated $1 million in the first month of the year.
It also generated more than a million dollars in federal advertising dollars.
Alberta’s online revenue has been growing faster than the provincial revenue for decades, but the province has not been able to keep up with the national rate of growth, said Brian Geddes, the executive director of the Canadian Association of Advertising Agencies.
Albertas advertising revenue is expected increase to $6.5 billion this year.
Geddes said Alberta’s ad revenue is growing faster in some areas than others.
In the downtown core, which includes downtown Calgary and downtown Edmonton, the provincial ad revenue grew more than three times faster than provincial revenue.
In some parts of the province, Alberta has struggled to keep pace with online advertising trends.
The provincial website only has 4,000 ads in its library, while the federal site has more than 50,000.
Goddard said that means it’s difficult for provincial governments to provide a complete picture of how the industry is changing.
For example, while Alberta has historically been the leader in online advertising spending, the province is now expected to overtake other jurisdictions in online ad revenues by 2018.
