Multi-Million Dollar Homepage


Multi-Million Dollar HomepageAlex Tew, the fellow behind the famous Million dollar homepage is about to try his luck again with a new site. Earlier Alex made a million dollars in a little over 6 months by selling single pixels on his site to advertisers for $1 each. I wonder if lightning will strike twice, Or more likely if people are bored of this pixel stuff and will dismiss it as "old hat".

Alexs' new site, Pixelotto, Will use practically be the same idea as the MDHP where people buy pixels to advertise on except this time instead of buying each pixel for $1, it will cost you $2, Then a $1 million prize will go to the person who clicks on the right advert. It seems Alex knows that the idea is old, So will try to attract visitors by offering them the chance to make a million by clicking on peoples adverts.

Either way I'm not fussed if this makes Alex another million or if it crashes and burns, But i have a feeling lightning isn't going to strike twice on this kid. He had a great idea once, But when you try to ride your luck you tend not to be so lucky twice.

The thing is though, These people aren't visiting your site because they are interested in your content or products. They are visiting your site because by doing so they might win $1M.

It's useless traffic. Useless traffic that has cost you a lot of money.

I have to agree. It's not about the number of uniques you get, but what those uniques do once on your site. Those poeple are likely only clicking to win the money and not really interested in your site.

The pixelloto idea though might work, though, since a lot of people think just having traffic makes it all worthwhile. If enough people are sold on the potential traffic as untargeted as it is lightning could strike twice.

I'm still hoping all pixel sites just go away.
