It's funny how we choose to reflect fondly of the past and completely ignore all the bad things we had to overcome to make it this far. I remember pay for inclusion, a handful of weekly- maybe monthly visits from search engine spiders, black hat cloaking, almost no money to be earned from advertising (assuming you were lucky enough to be accepted in the first place), outrageous hosting fees and domain prices, and the list goes on. The playing field is much more balanced today with the opportunity for greater rewards, although the field is a lot more crowded. You just have to work harder to stand apart from the crowd.
