The Infolinks Global Advertising Timeline Infographic

A couple of days ago, Mashable published an Infographic that Infolinks (a Goldrock portfolio company) designed. It is a brief history/timeline of advertising and its evolution. Starting off in ancient Egypt, explaining the first print ad in an English prayer book, to the reason for the billboard concept - all the way to today’s methods of advertising on the internet, some of the biggest and most interesting landmarks are documented on this fun and creative timeline. Interestingly, the first keyword ad was “golf”!
