FUDBusters: Rumors of Internet Slowdown Are Greatly Exaggerated
When: The survey was released July 6.
FUDFactor: The burst of the Internet bubble--and the demise of pet food sites, metals e-marketplaces and thousands of other dot-com aspirants--was supposed to have marked a new era of slow Internet growth.
FUDBust:The dot-com bubble may have burst, but the Internet keeps expanding. Netcraft cites four reasons for the recent surge: more affordable Web storefronts for small businesses; the proliferation of blogs and the accompanying purchase of domains for branding purposes; continued speculation in domain names; and strong online advertising sales. Whether it's due to these reasons or some new phenomenon, one thing is clear: Internet growth is still booming.
