Abstract: This article presents a structural equation model framework that supports the quality of online advertising. This framework is composed of a hierarchical structure of criteria and subcriteria and makes use of structural equation modelling approach to develop the final framework, which depends on the critical factors that affect the quality concept of the online advertisement. To validate this framework, we performed a survey based on a questionnaire and a sample of 200 World Wide Web users. The results confirmed the framework validity and rotated factor analysis supported reduction of the original model to an online advertisement quality-scoring framework, which involves eight composite quality criteria.
Keywords: internet advertising; quality criteria; factor analysis; structural equation modelling; user requirements satisfaction.
