Question Why don't Coca-Cola/Pepsi/Ford advertise on the net?

One thing I've always wondered is why companies like Coca-Cola/Pepsi/Ford advertise on the internet?

These companies spend billions of dollars on advertising but seem not to have taken the internet to heart. I realise they can't sell coke cans via the net, but what about branding? That's why they sponsor major sports events.

Other companies which spend billions on television advertising are for washing powder, cleaning products etc. etc.

If various multinationals with such products started buying banners, it could give a much needed boost to the market!
