The list, compiled by analytics company iSpot.tv, looked at "earned online engagement," made up of online activity, or the digital share of voice compared to other ads; social actions, such as tweets, shares and mentions; and the number of times an ad had been viewed online via Facebook, YouTube and via iSpot.tv, where someone explicitly requested to see a particular ad.
