But before you get to that, I thought I'd mention a familiar Net name that bit the dust earlier in the week. After struggling for months, Alladvantage has finally ceased operations. Launched in 1999, it was the first, and arguably most widely known of the companies that pay people to view ads as they surf. Way back in September last year, I reported that AllAdvantage had not only postponed its planned IPO, but was losing money and laying off staff. I said then that I was pessimistic about its chances of survival, so the news this week came as little surprise. From the AllAdvantage web site: "We are sad to report that the major changes in the marketplace that occurred during the last year now require that we close the AllAdvantage Viewbar and our pay-to-surf, sweepstakes and other incentive programs." The sharp decline in dot com investments and resultant fallout has dealt companies like AllAdvantage a severe blow. Not only are they finding it hard to secure direct funding themselves. Hundreds of companies have closed over the last nine months. Fewer companies means fewer advertisers. Those particularly eager to spend investor dollars were amongst the first to go, making the effect more pronounced than might otherwise be expected. For those those still in business, cash is tight. Advertising budgets have been drastically reduced, in turn driving down ad rates. Investors are demanding accountability from the companies they fund. With limited budgets and a need to show results, traditional Web advertising models with a proven track record will be the preferred choice of most. Though unfortunate that repercussions have been so severe, this tightening-up and weeding-out is good for online business in the long term. Take it as a sign that the Internet is growing-up. If you're an affiliate, AllAdvantage won't be paying you unless credits in your account reach the payment threshold (I assume affiliates know how much that is). Apparently this is stated in the Viewbar Agreement, so I can't comment much, although I don't like it. Visit the AllAdvantage site for further details. AllAdvantage also suggest you uninstall the Viewbar, as it's no longer supported, and may become unstable. Instructions on how to remove the software can be found on the Web site.
