AllAdvantage offered participants 50 cents an hour to download a view bar on their browser with a constantly changing rotation of banner ads. AllAdvantage was a great company for high school kids who wanted to make $100 a month, but failed to impress advertisers who didn't see the value in such a poorly paid demographic. The company paid out most of its $150M venture capital to kids surfing the Internet, while failing to attract advertisers. The business model never had a prayer.
