|PayPerPost just bought Performancing. I tried all of Performancing's products at one time or another, and I was never really impressed by any of them. Their Firefox extension is a good idea in theory, but I never really had much success with it. I tried Performancing Metrics when Google Analytics wasn't allowing any new users. Metrics has a few good features and displays statistical data pretty nicely, but like any external web statistics program, it resides on a server other than my own, so it increases page loading time. On a positive note, I liked it better than Google's product because it displayed statistics much more intuitively for me. For some reason, Google Analytics is like trying to learn Chinese. I tried Performancing Partners for a brief period during my AdSense trials, and I came to the same conclusion as with every other web advertising scheme: Companies won't buy links on my site because my site is too small. This means I don't make money with web advertising. As for the Performancing website in general, I have one major complaint: The main guy (Nick Wilson) is a horrible writer that needs to discover the magical art of spell check. Words like "contraversy" can be pretty easily corrected by some artificial intelligence.
And I guess that's what it all comes down to. I keep hearing/seeing press about the things Performancing is doing, but I can't bring myself to respect a website, a company, or a person who can't spell.
