Its good to see from 20 ad networks in 2008 starting we have seen only 10 ad networks survive or grade with 1 Network play missing which is more of a publisher representation business then a network. As a network is suppose to ad some kind of targeting or technology value to both advertiser and publisher – hence didnt make the grade.
