Online ad revenue continues at record levels, rising 25 percent in 2007, according to IAB and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Internet advertising sales are expected to have risen to a record $21.1 billion in 2007, up 25 percent from the previous year, according to a report released by the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
