Infomercials Invading the Web.
OK, I know that there are ads on almost all websites these days. That's how we're able to have a "free" internet. But now I've noticed that some "articles" are actually infomercials.
I have Yahoo.ca as my home page and there's usually the latest news at a glance, but for the past couple of days there was a link that looked like a story, but was actually an infomercial.
Today, there was a link to the following on the front page of Yahoo Canada.
The other day there was one on Winter Tires, but it was also a Canadian Tire informercial. Edit - found the link in my History.
What do you think of this trend? Is this something recent or have I simply missed the previous ones.
