The Great Web Advertising Debate

Written by Michael Bloch

What happened torepparttar World Wide Web?

The answer is atrepparttar 101108 end ofrepparttar 101109 article........

One ofrepparttar 101110 most common debates around is over web advertising.

Some sites that you visit have so many animated banners that it looks like a shooting gallery! Others will throw up 20 windows of ads when you try to exitrepparttar 101111 site. I call these tactics "scumvertising". I know of a number of people who have stopped usingrepparttar 101112 World Wide Web due to scumvertising. Some say, "The Internet should be free of advertising!"....

.... pardon? Why?

The very nature of life on this planet is dependant on advertising. A pretty big statement for me to make, so here's a simplified justification:

Inrepparttar 101113 animal world,repparttar 101114 strongest survive. The most aggressive,repparttar 101115 most brash ofrepparttar 101116 species will haverepparttar 101117 tendency to be most successful in reproduction.

Inrepparttar 101118 plant world, some plants use elaborate ornamentation to assist in their reproduction. Some flower perfumes are so strong, they can be detected from miles away which attractsrepparttar 101119 necessary insects to assist in pollination.

Inrepparttar 101120 world of business, those organisations who attractrepparttar 101121 most paying customers grow. The ones that hide their candle under a bushel, no matter how goodrepparttar 101122 product or service is, will die. Successful businesses advertise. They userepparttar 101123 World Wide Web to do so. They pay others to display their ads which creates income for thousands of web masters. The ads also generate competition amongst businesses. The victor inrepparttar 101124 competition gains sales. The sales generate employment. The competition leads to lower pricing and refinement of product.

OK, sorepparttar 101125 comparison is taking it torepparttar 101126 extreme; but we seem to be living in a society of rampant consumerism, where we want everything for nothing if possible, and we want it now. If it wasn't for advertising, such as seen onrepparttar 101127 World Wide Web:

- my computer would have cost more and I probably wouldn't have it -repparttar 101128 commercial software on my computer - as above - my internet connection - as above - freeware would not exist inrepparttar 101129 levels available today - I may not be able to afford to offer as much information as I do to others - for free

Without advertising on our sites,repparttar 101130 World Wide Web would be elitist - available to onlyrepparttar 101131 rich,repparttar 101132 government and academia. The Internet andrepparttar 101133 World Wide Web, while having it's pitfalls as any human system does, is probablyrepparttar 101134 best thing to happen to our species in a very long time. And it has been onrepparttar 101135 back of advertising thatrepparttar 101136 WWW has grown atrepparttar 101137 phenomal rate it has.

In stark contrast, my dreams ofrepparttar 101138 perfect world dictate there would be no need for advertising as money would not exist - but in my perfect world there would also be no need for computers. I loverepparttar 101139 Internet, and computering in general, but I would trade it in any day for a world without crime, pollution and crowding. The Internet has provided me with a living, computers helped me to emerge fromrepparttar 101140 gutter and to learn to exist in our society. I now not just survive, I thrive. It has allowed me to communicate my message to an audience of thousands, and to learn many valuable lessons in life from others.

The World Wide Web is slowed down by advertising you say? Yes, that's correct. But not as slow as needing to leave my premises to go torepparttar 101141 library to carry out research. It's not anywhere as near as slow as usingrepparttar 101142 postal service to deliver documents.

Internet connections are too expensive - Yes, there is still more room for improvement. But it's not as expensive as calling Interstate or International viarepparttar 101143 telephone to get technical information for products; and at least you can print out your results straight offrepparttar 101144 screen. Connectivity equipment, telecommunications services and Internet access has dropped incredibly in price overrepparttar 101145 last 5 years. How have these price drops occurred? As a direct result of advertising. Think about it based onrepparttar 101146 model I mentioned earlier.
