At one time, e-commerce retailers found it crucial to join one of the major online malls
-- such as Yahoo! Shopping, Lycos or Excite -- if they wanted to have any chance of
success. But times are changing as portal sites de-emphasize shopping and consumers find
other ways to access their favorite stores on the Web. "The virtual mall doesn't take the
place of the strip-shopping center that people drive to every week," GartnerG2 research
director David Schehr told the E-Commerce Times.

Good article....but how is it that no one ever mentions anything about Quixtar.com? One of the top 5 or so most successful "Portals" that pays you to shop & refer. Is it because that they don't pay a dime for any advertisement? hmmm?
just a thought...

Is native advertising good for journalism?
Yes -- It's a reasonable source of additional revenue for media outlets to support their traditional editorial efforts.
Yes -- Paid-for articles can contain useful information, but readers might bypass them if they look too much like ads.
Maybe -- But only if it's clearly labeled as paid-for content.
No -- I don't trust any information from media outlets that cloak paid-for content as objective journalism.
No -- Native advertising is confusing and devious, and it threatens the fabric of traditional journalism.
I Don't Know -- I don't understand what native advertising is.
