Million Dollar Homepage

You must have heard of the site that is selling pixels by the dollar. Million Dollar Homepage, the brainchild of Alex Tew. A simple idea that took off after a blaze of publicity... If you visit the Million $ Homepage you'll see that 999,000 pixels have been sold, leaving just 1000 up for grabs! Unbelievable that this ever took off, let alone be so successful. Anyway, the last 1000 pixels is for sale on eBay, presently standing at $35,603. The buyer of this last block is bound to get massive publicity for their site.

Here's an example of burt was refering to in an earlier post about the goldrush and how the people who got rich were the businesses supplying the tools for the people looking for gold...

On the back of the million dollar home page idea, lots of people thought it was an easy way to make money...this site (now for sale) sells a script that allows people to set up their own million dollar homepage site ;)

Yeah Baldy, I saw that one too.

The thing is, all these sales he is pumping everyone up about are during his sites "golden hour". I would be wary of buying it knowing that these sites are a passing fad, and are likely to move into obscurity in a few short weeks.

I dunno, to me it seems like risky money.

Nice find - the guy doing the sales is not the guy that owns the site I reckon. Adi is an intermediary in a lot of sales (and he is very thorough)..

He did offer to help me out with my osC Books sale - but I decided not to go ahead (as his fees were a bit steep I thought)...

Nice guy though - I have purchased a site from him in the past.
