It’s obvious that commercial action on the internet is
growing at an ever
-
increasing rate. It’s going through
the roof
-
just like his stock price!(Para4)

The use of idiom “go through the roof” here aims to
emphasize the rapid increase of the advertisement.
The rate of growing of commercials is compared to
that of the well
-
known Netscape’s stock price, thus
achieving the effect that the writer expects.
