According to Adobe, Facebook ads are 51 percent more relevant than Google’s display ads. Many of those Google ads run on YouTube.

In short, Facebook’s click-through rates are up 35 percent from a year ago. The big takeaway is that chief marketing officers increasingly see Facebook as a strong Google counterweight. It’s worth noting that Google is still growing with click through rates up 25 percent from a year ago.

Adobe’s analysis is based on more than 900 billion digital ad impressions as well as more than 23 billion referred social visits.

Other takeaways:

North America leads the globe in search marketing spend with gains of 17 percent from a year ago.
Bing’s growth in paid search spend surpasses Google in every region but North America. This growth, however, is off a smaller base.
Smartphone cost per click growth is flat for the third quarter.
