Million Dollar Homepage

Wow, this guy is selling advertising one pixel at a time to pay for his college education, and he’s already raised enough for three years of study. There are a million pixels available for a buck apiece, so he calls it the Million Dollar Homepage.

  1. I actually got an ad on

    A lot cheaper. Kind of a knock-off, but that million dollar kid is greedy.

    Comment by Jason | September 22, 2005

  2. Okay, Jason wins.

    … Something :-)

    I love this. Who will top it? Will it be Million Nickel Homepage? Million Quarter Homepage? Million Two-Dollar Bill Homepage? Million Canadian Loonie Homepage?

    If you can’t find Jason’s add, its the stylized “S” about 30 blocks down and 20 blocks accross.

  3. You know darren is not the first to talk about this guy. I read it on blogs at least 3 weeks ago.

    Comment by Shane | September 22, 2005

  4. I never said he was, just that he was the first one to point me that way. Did you blog it?

    Comment by Nathan Weinberg | September 22, 2005

  5. I’ve written a small PHP program for you to have your own million dollar ad right on your blog. It’s freeware, and I hope it will turn some bloggers into millionaires. :)

    You can download it here:

  7. There are a whole slew out there of these Million Dollar Homepages

    as well as some country oriented ones for Dutch and German speakers.

    Comment by Shaun Lessey | September 23, 2005

  8. Free is an excellent price, but I’m not sure I’d want to put the work into it. I’ll try to top it with something else. ‘Try’ being the key word, but I think I have a creative twist on it. I’m selling squares on a map of the U.S., with a separate map for personal websites at only $20 a square.

    Comment by Bob | September 23, 2005

  9. Well, if a buck seems like too much for a pixel, how about half a buck? For 10 years, no less. Until 2015.

    Only $0.50 per pixel!

  15. Here’s one that is similar but it gives back to the advertisers, or at least to the lucky ones. .25 cents a pixel. It’s the first one with a PRIZE???

    Comment by Powerstar | September 25, 2005

  16. re:Million bucks puzzle,
    Sorry, I don’t get it, do i have to hang around for 10 hours just to see the question? :-S

    Comment by James | September 25, 2005

  17. Here´s another one, they seem to take a more professional approach to selling pixels judging by their layout and all.

  26. This is just way too funny, I found yet another knock-off site ad they are getting BIG traffic numbers too.

    Comment by Jodi | September 28, 2005

  27. Surely none of these rip offs will get any business?

    Who wants a 10×10 pixel slot on an unknown website anyway?

    Comment by Alan | September 28, 2005

  28. I have an ad on - cheaper, but this is only for eBay sellers.

    Already had some traffic from it… nice one!

    Comment by Terry | September 28, 2005

  37. The Chinese Million Dollar Homepage????? has been so successful that it catches eyes of not only English speakers but also people of other nations.

    A Million Dollar Homepage in Chinese( was launched last week, which grows so fast that it was listed on Alexa’s Mover & Shakers (Chinese website) after only one week, whose traffic rank rise up by 4,000%. (

    Even Alexa noticed this Chinese “copycat”, and mentioned its existence.(

    The Chinese Million Dollar Homepage is designed particularly for Chinese visitors and their block/grid (13×13 pixels) is also larger than the Million Dollar Homepage (10×10 pixels) as Chinese Characters are larger than English letters. On the other hand, the price is set for local market, RMB(Chinese Dollar)100 for each, each is a lot more affordable than US$100.

    According to a Chinese blogger, the Chinese Million Dollar Homepage has been very hot among Chinese bloggers, and it’s been also reported by several major professional Chinese ICPs. And the owners wrote on their blog that, the traffic had grown so fast that they had to purchase their own server only 5 days after it launched .

    The Chinese Million Dollar Homepage also has an English ntroduction page(, which promotes itself as a cost-effective way of reaching Chinese market, in which 60 million people surf Internet. It accepts payment in US$ via Paypal and US$15 per block for people who are not able to pay RMB(Chinese Dollar).

    But the Chinese culture is quite different from the Western culture, will it succeed as the English one? Let’s see.

    Comment by tom | October 1, 2005

  40. directory style > instead of a hash of unrelated ads.

    Comment by james | October 1, 2005

  41. We are doing stories about another site that is selling pixels but is growing faster than MDHP. Looks like some public company named In Touch Media group is behind it. Looks like pixel advertising is here for awhile.

    Comment by Broberts | October 1, 2005

  42. Forgot to mention the site in my last post. The url is

    Comment by Broberts | October 1, 2005

  43. I found 4 new pixel sites, they are all using the same script. These give away the pixels for FREE, but you can buy the script
    for less than you pay for one block of pixels on the other sites and set it up on your own website.

    This is the main one here

    Then a copy of that one is here

    The next two are for members of and, you must be a member of those sites to get pixels

    Looking for even more :), what a great idea!

    Comment by Jeff | October 2, 2005

  44. I made a list of all the copycats I can find with their site stats and whether they are making money or not:

    And I got even more copycats coming to leave their site addresses in my comments section..

    Comment by Yuna | October 2, 2005

  45. It’s so hilarious, I have eaten my shoe already, how people actually buy pixels. :I
    Well, if they can buy pixels, they surely will buy bricks! lol

    pssssttt: plz don’t tell anyone

    Comment by Moonjunkie | October 2, 2005

  46. You can buy pixels/blocks from the site and add your own banners/ads which contain link to your own page.
    There is 1 million pixels in site and you can deside which place you purchase.

    Comment by Mike Blakely | October 2, 2005

  47. I’m laughing at this whole internet trend.

    Comment by jason | October 2, 2005

  48. On this site you can buy 1 pixel for $1 each. But half of the proceeds are going to the hurricane relief funds in the U.S. This is a great idea, i rather pay money for ads that are going to a good cause instead of someone who is paying for college or needs some new socks!!

    Comment by John | October 2, 2005

  49. this one is the first i have seen that will post your pixel image after confirming your payment. I guess it is the New and Improved version. Wish politicians can come up with creative ways to erase the defecits.

    any way here is the link:

    Why didn’t i think of it first?

    Comment by henry | October 3, 2005

  50. Over at Yuna’s place, we’re having a discussion about how Alex Tew seems to have created a new genre of website.

    My own “spinoff” site is called “The Friendly Neighborhood Home Page.” I am trying to raise money to buy a home.

    There are a ton of sites popping up, but I think that the more creative spinoffs have some chance of success. It’s still very early.

    Comment by Jim | October 3, 2005

  51. here is my website.
    I am trying to raise money for special causes. It is the same concept, money for pixels, but part of the money will be used as donations to the causes listed on the site.

    Comment by Jayson Lindahl | October 3, 2005

  52. Okay so the site ( is getting traffic, which is good! But no one is inquiring about buying space … is there something everyone else is doing that I am not????

    Thanks in advance!

  57. One of the original pixel ad sites:

    Cheap ass pixels and proceeds go to the Red Cross!

    Comment by OMP | October 3, 2005

  58. I decided to drop my spinoff site. Refunds were issued. There are just too many people jumping on the bandwagon, and I didn’t want to be locked into hosting a mostly empty page for 5 years. It was really just something I was testing the waters with. It turns out that the water is getting too crowded with sharks.

    My url now forwards to a list of current “Million” clone sites. It’s a wiki, so anyone can edit the list if they know of new sites.

    Comment by Jim | October 3, 2005

  59. Take a look at “The Auction Homepage”. This site has more potential than all “Million Dollar Homepage” look-a-likes! My opinion is auctioning banners on Ebay is going to make this site’s traffic sky rocket.

    The website address is:

I also gave full credit to Alex on my site with a link to his site.

All advertisers, past and present are listed on the Sponsors page as well. Web site owners can also compete for text link placement via monetary donations.

  123. I decided that if Alex can sell pixels to help pay for college then I can sell pixels to help pay my mortgage ;)

    An added bonus is I’ve only got 350,000 pixels (700×500) so all advertising is visible above the fold.

  146. An unfortunate tale begins to unfold,
    now the winter is here and the weather is cold,
    an unlucky lady due to circumstance rare,
    has lost all her clothes - her body is bare,

    she surely will perish I hear you all cry,
    get laughed at, get ill, arrested or die,
    It’s a sad situation, I’m sure you agree,
    It could happen to you, it could happen to me.

    The reason I’m bringing this problem to light,
    is because you can help her right here on this site,
    With a couple of clicks you can alter her fate,
    and dress her with pixels before it’s too late,

    Any pixels you buy - just a dollar a block,
    can be linked to your site, where people will flock,
    to see who is helping this girl in dispair,
    by donating pixels - for her to wear.

    It surely shows that you don’t need to build a site, you don’t also need to do SEO.. or so.. and still you can make $ on Internet.

  178. News from

    ‘a Devon business with global ambition’

    Date: Monday 16 January 2006

    Australia asks Devon Designer for Help

    Devon internet businessman and web designer Alan Wheeler has launched an innovative web advertising service which has already attracted an international company to sign up.

    Bovey Tracey based Mr Wheeler has also been asked by Australian charity ‘Hope for Children’ to help them design and set up a similar web-based advertising service.

    His web-service enables businesses to buy a square of pixels, on the web page. Customers click on the coloured pixels and are immediately transported to the advertiser’s web site.

    With each block of 100 pixels costing just £60 (60p per unit) it is, believes Mr Wheeler, one of the best value advertising and promotion options for businesses of all sizes and a potentially valuable boost to tourism related services.

    And, in the longer term, advertisers could end up bidding for space on what is being described as internet ‘real estate’.

    Mr Wheeler, aged 42, said “It’s a quick and easy way for people to find a service or firm and it also gives competitive advantage to the businesses because, with the millions of web sites available, this will draw potential customers to them much more easily.”

    “Without a doubt there are people globally willing to pay for quite gimmicky advertising solutions. The internet is a fast moving place with over eight million web pages added on a daily basis. For a website to stand out and generate sales it needs to stand out from the rest,” he added

    Last autumn university student Alex Tew set up the Million Dollar site and since then has been overwhelmed by the success of a venture intended to raise enough money to pay for his way through university.

    Alan Wheeler’s is, he says, the next big step in the concept because, in effect, businesses are ‘leasing’ virtual real estate on the web to promote their businesses.

    Launched just two weeks ago, has already won the backing of international business Optis Europe Ltd, an operations management company, which is using the site to promote its business.

    With more customers advertising it is, says Mr Wheeler, inevitable that like real property, some of the pixels on his site will become increasingly valuable for their ‘owners’ as more business is generated.

    However, the last 1200 pixels, or advertising blocks, will eventually be auctioned off in support of the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, said Mr Wheeler.

  179. I couldn’t believe that there is now a pixel site for cool pages at:

    It is the first of its kind! It’s also at a basement bargain price of $0.10 per pixel.

    Comment by Richard | January 25, 2006

  180. GetLessDebt takes the new pixel advertising format and targets it to Debt Consolidation websites. Instead of having random, untargeted advertisements GetLessDebt creates a forum or directory for users to connect to several different sites relating to debt. Debt Consolidation, Refinancing, Mortgages, Loans, Credit Reports, Christian Debt, Credit Counseling, Bankruptcy and anything in that realm.

    Comment by Andrew | January 29, 2006

  181. I like what Alex did with the million dollar homepage, but I found it very hard to see the ads. That is where I found this site called Banners Bring Business at that sells ads in the form of banners. Now instead of just a 10×10 block for $100, you can get a 88×31 banner ad for the same price and people will actually get to see your ad and what you are trying to get across. I think it is a good spin off on a quality idea.

    Comment by Jake | February 1, 2006

  182. I bought the big target in the centre of the MDHP, the daily response has been absolutely phenomenal. We’re just glad that we got in there early and took the chance with spending quite a lot of money on it. With regards to copycat sites - I’m looking for something with even 10% of the initiative, to no avail.

  184. […] In Nathan’s post of Sept. 21st last year, there are 183 comments, and most of them are promoting a thing like Million Dollar Homepage, be it with another name. I’m not quite sure this one will be ‘it’ just because they named it ‘mobile’. […]

  190. Jobless Boy Launches A Website To Sell 10,000 Jeans On The Internet!

    USA jobless boy has set his sights on earning himself a million dollars after thinking of a simple idea of selling brands new and used jeans on his homepage
    He had been thinking of ideas on how to make a little extra money for himself but some of his ideas either never worked out or were just far too ambitious.
    So far there are 28 jeans sold on the homepage which has netted him just $1300 but as visitors grow and more people hear about the site, no doubt more jeans will be added and he will progress towards his target of 10,000 jeans on his homepage and one million dollars in the bank.

    Some numbers have the special property that they cannot be expressed as the product of two smaller numbers, e.g., 2, 3, 5, 7, etc. Such numbers are called prime numbers, and they play an important role, both in pure mathematics and its applications. The distribution of such prime numbers among all natural numbers does not follow any regular pattern. A proof that it is true for every interesting solution would shed light on many of the mysteries surrounding the distribution of prime numbers.
    Since the late 1960s, with the advent of computers, there has been a shift of focus from finding a mathematical formula to devise an algorithm that can test for primality of a given number. Testing of primality thus became an important problem in theoretical computer science. If an algorithmic solution to the problem posed is found, then an executable computer program can be written.
    Check algorithmic solution here:

    Comment by MoneyOrBox | May 31, 2006

  202. I believe that Alex’s site still generates some indirect value for advertisers at least by improving their visibility in search engines. It has a PageRank of 7 and many still continue to add links to it (by the way, this article has just added one link). So, getting the link from website with such a high PageRank for as low as 1$ it is clearly a reasonable investment. Good luck to all the copycats :)
