Now that many papers have an online presence they should have more, not less advertisers available. The customer/reader is accessing them via the internet the customer/reader can purchase goods via the internet as well. In the physical paper it makes less sense for a product sold online to be advertised, so that market is probably nil.

My local paper does advertise brick and mortar local shops on their website, meanwhile Amazon.com reports its best-ever holiday season. I see zero, non-local advertisements on my local papers website.

It turned out to be a mistake." He has now made the application free by posting a registration code, and plans to open-source it."

Often statistics are used as a drunken man uses lampposts -- for support rather than illumination.
