Top 50 Interactive Agencies / Web Firms

This data comes from Advertising Age’s 2005 rankings. Yes it’s a bit old, but still interesting to see how the large Web companies stack up. Some might be surprised to see New York firms outnumber California firms on a technology related consulting list, but keep in mind that much of this business is rooted in traditional advertising agencies that have morphed or spawned “interactive” agencies.

    Seems about right – but would like to see some more recent data. I think Razorfish/AvA and Sapient have gone back and forth battling for the top spot for years. Agency.com and Oglivey are more traditional PR firms I think – although it looks like this is just including OgilvyInteractive – otherwise their revenue number would be much larger.
