How Article Directory's changed their tune

Some history to AD's and how they got that way.

All due to the model of trying to make money from advertising. Got to love this stuff. Some people do make money off ad sales and clickthroughs...

SiteProNews :: Webmaster News and Advice :: The Clash Of Titans: Article Directory Owners Vs. Automated Article Submission Services: "The Clash Of Titans Things really began to change in the AD directory ownership game a few months into the project. Directory owners began to realize that in order for them to profit from their article directories, they must do something that brings readers to their websites and encourages loyalty from their site’s visitors. Since most article directories rely on advertising to drive their revenue stream, the directory owners had to do something that the other directory owners were not doing. They had to distinguish themselves from the masses. The AD owners who have survived the early explosion of AD sites have generally taken the attitude that they should focus on “quality over quantity”. This one step has set the goals of the software developers’ article distribution systems and their customers (quantity over quality) in conflict with the best interests of the article directory owners (quality over quantity)."
