    Good article.

    A thought: If the is indeed a trend to opening new ad windows when you visit a site then, just as people flip off a tv channel during commercials, people will avoid those sites that display too many ads.

    I think that internet advertising is a powerful medium, alhtough i think that stocks like yahoo where greatly overvalued which is why they fell.

    I don't think they were too far overvalued when they were at 35-70. Why? They are profitable, this is a key focal point. They are a good stock and a good buy right now. This is just the current state of the market that we are seeing.

    (Don't want to turn this into a stock discussion! lol - just thought I'd post this )

    For specific or niche` items net ads are great.

    But for general public items, IMO the results so far are skewed. The people who regular surf the net don't any way represent the general public. No way to tell if a general ad campaign is really reaching the people they think they are.

    I think what we are now seeing is true value, and the crash was not true but inflated value collapsing to normal levels. I mean, last year anyone with an idea could get VC cash, now you have to do very well just like any normal business.

    Necrom: Of Course! lol

    Poly: I don't really agree. In the stock market at any given time there are overvalued stocks and times when a stock is hit too far down. YHOO, CPQ, and SUNW are cases of that. Like I said, its the current state of the market, which is awful. Hopefully, the fed will cut rates and help us out a little bit.
