    The first colors of AOL. Was it green and white or blue and white?
    When Yahoo had free classified ads. Oh the money made on that was amazing.
    Free AOL web pages for members
    AOL chat rooms
    Homestead websites!
    The AOL download directory
    Slingo on AOL
    What else?

    Geocities. and downloading off Napster with a 56k modem and the connection would get interrupted so you had to start the three hour process all over again for just one single music track.

    I remember Yahoo auctions, where they let you sell just about anything, and as far as I remember there were no listing fees. I made my first online cash there selling cigarettes and tobacco from Spain to buyers in the UK where cigs were more expensive.

    ETA: And "under construction" pages that had dozens of moving gifs plastered all over them.

    And paying almost $40 for my first domain.
