Is the global economic downturn affecting website income?

Has anyone else been noticing a fall in website revenue, and if so, do people generally consider it to be a side effect of the global economic downturn?

I've noticed advertising revenue on a few of my websites halved over the past 6-8 months or so, and I'm wondering whether companies are generally spending less on advertising.

I'm also noticing resistance in driving up sales to my e-commerce sites, and I wonder if people generally have less money than what they did say last year.

I don't think so web marketing is affected by the global recession. Most of the experts and myself believe this is the time when entrepreneurs can survive and make more money by proper marketing and by reducing their prices (not quality).

Definitely !! E-commerce is part of the commerge and global economy so is obvious that what happens in the world makes waves in e-commerce too. Another thing is that the competition is thougher now as more and more people are trying to make a living online as they lost their real jobs so launch websites. (Yeah you may say that on the other hands they may be customers as they buy hosting, services, domains, seo etc) but at the moment I think they are newbies and when you learn you do it using as many free resources as possible.

Why do you think fiverr.com have such a great success now. Isn't unbelivebale what people do for $5 ?! I've got a nice video presentation that would cost me at least $100 if ordered on a profesional designer for $5
