While the athletes of the 2012 Summer Olympics were running and jumping, throwing and rowing, tumbling and stumbling, swimming and spinning (and sometimes not grinning), Internet users around the world were searching.

We took a look at the searches on the adMarketplace search network to learn which athletes took home popularity gold, which countries stood ahead of the pack, and what sports the world was most interested in from July 27, date of the Opening Ceremony, through the Closing Ceremony on August 12. Here is what we found:

Amid all the bad news about Facebook this week — misstating its Monthy Active Users numbers, its stock price dropping below $20 for the first time (sinking California’s revenue estimates along with it), major executive brain-drain, and its M&A department trying to strong-arm a young app developer into selling them his company — one story in particular stood out because it goes to the heart of Facebook’s advertising business:

Facebook has been accused of delivering non-human Pay Per Click traffic to advertisers.

New York-based start-up Limited Run bought Pay Per Click advertising through Facebook and noticed that only 15-20% of the clicks on the visits it received were getting reported by its website analytics tools. That can happen sometimes since analytics tools rely on sampling and the sample size is not always big enough. But with further digging, the advertiser finally determined that roughly 80% of its Facebook ad traffic came from users who did not accept JavaScript.

We're happy to welcome two new members to our tech team this week:

Shane Sorbello, Sys Ops Engineer
Shane comes to adMarketplace with a background in IT and education and a degree in mathematics and computer science. Alongside his technological pursuits, he is a guitar player and enthusiast with particular interests in contemporary and blues guitar music. Recently, Shane has taken up astronomy as hobby, seeking out deep sky views with a large aperture Dobsonian telescope. Fond of the humanities, he enjoys the short stories of Jorge Luis Borges and Joseph Campbell's comparative studies in mythology.

Mariyan Stoyanov, Software Developer
Mariyan has interests in computers and natural sciences but also enjoys activities such as painting, playing piano (or rather trying to renew that skill), listening to jazz, blues, rock and classical music. Some of the favorite composers, performers and bands are Queen, Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley, Ritchie Valens, Frederic Chopin and Beethoven. He also plays badminton, soccer, basketball and does yoga.
