    No, not quite. They would most likely be the next company acquired by Microsoft. I can see it now... Search results brought to you by Google, A MSN service.

    Just advertisers finally getting smart about their buys.

    Generic advertising buys (tv, etc...) are great for branding, but there is no way to tell whether someone bought a mustang because they saw an ad on CBS at 3 am or whether bought a mustang because they read an ad in Car and Driver magazine.

    With Internet campaigns you can tell exactly what ads are producing and which aren't and save a heck of a lot of previously wasted ad spends.

    AdBrite would be nice if it had a similar array of advertiser and results, but given that it doesn't, most sites I use it with make far, far less.

    That would be true if type-ins, repeat traffic, cooking clearing and branding didn't apply. Tracking with an internet campaign is _better_ but it is by no means a science. All results have to be adjusted for if you want accurate results.
