    It is with much regret that we announce that Matched.co.uk has closed.
     
    Matched has been running as a beta experiment for some time and, after much careful consideration, it has been decided not to progress the project to the next stage.
     
    As a result, Matched will not be accepting new sign-ups and will no longer be assigning adverts to its current publisher base.
     
    If you completed your last payment run before November 19th 2008, you will still be paid, but please note that no future payments will be made after this. Therefore, we recommend that you remove any Matched ads from your websites.
     
    Thank you very much for being part of the Matched.co.uk experience and we wish you the best of luck for the future success of your websites.
    
    Thanks,
    Matched.co.uk
    Wasn't surprising really as they were paying out like £20 or something a month per page that you had a banner on with a max of 6 or something.... so newbies made a site got accepted and then made loads of money over and over again with different versions of the same site that they didnt really try hard with....

    Damn I didnt know they were paying that high, I would have had their ads on all my websites on every page. Fuck it, I would have hacked into everyone elses websites and put their ads on their sites as well lol

    It was either a scam or a bad business model. Awhile ago I signed up with them and got ads accepted on a few of my sites. Never got paid, emails to the admin were ignored. I'm glad to not only see the site go away, but all the crap ebooks that people wrote about it.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.
