A buck a pixel makes a Million!

Click for a bigger picture Read a story in News.com that Alex Tew, a 21 years old student from a small town in Wiltshire, England sells pixels, the tiny dots on the screen that appear when you call up his home page. (What would you and I do with those infernal pixels? Look at that boy’s ingenuity, man!)

The home page of his web site appropriately named as Milliondollarhomepage.com, “now looks like an online Times Square, festooned with a multicolored confetti of ads.”

Advertisers who have bought (really!) chunks of 100 pixels or more have discovered that they were receiving actual valuable Web hits for a fraction of the cost of traditional Internet advertising.

So far they have bought up 911,800 pixels.

So he is only a whisker sway from a Million $$$.

Hey, leave some green to the greens!

    If I was the kind of person who bought pixel ads, and let me stress I am no such thing because it’s so untargeted, I might go for something like companybattleships.com which seems to have some quite nice programming behind it and is doing well on Google for “pixels for sale” and “buy pixels”.
