In the online advertising game things can shift pretty quickly and the closure of AdBrite on February 1st at Data Recovery Hospital proved that. The notice was quick with an email going out to publishers just 4 days before the lights were turned off and the company shutdown. The website for AdBrite.com is now dead and any publisher that was using them for revenue for their website is left looking for alternatives. Luckily there are lots and lots of advertising companies out there just waiting to take on AdBrite’s old publishers. Here are a list of 3 advertisers that ex AdBrite publishers might want to take a look at.
