Is Pixelotto Paying For Hits?

Alex Tew’s newest idea? to make a million dollars; and an equal opportunity millionaire for a viewer with an itchy finger. For readers that are unfamiliar with who he is, a bit of bio may be in order. Alex gave birth in 2006 to an idea of selling pixels as a means of advertising; it was new, interesting and fun for hundreds of thousands all over the world. For some merchants, it provided new, yet short lived exposure. The MillionDollarHomepage is a collage of random pixels depicting images with messages provided by the owner. The idea truly provides a unique form of advertising.

Many others (copy cats) have tried to duplicate the pixel concept and collect a million dollars; either for a legitimate purpose or simply as a get rich scheme.
ShopFromHomepage was conceived over 6 months ago as a means to locate local business in various metropolitan cities for the benefit of all who are looking to shop local. The idea of creating an interactive map with the ability of offering a general message and a company’s website were ideal. Location and company information are available 24 hours a day. Utilizing pixel technology seemed the best solution offering cost effective and finite advertising.

Several key elements separate the two websites: Pixelotto provides the developer (Alex Tew) a million dollars and once again offers random advertising from Soho to Beijing. The merchants now have increased odds of receiving traffic to their site through the introduction of a lottery. Users will click on random images at a minimum pace of 10/day to be eligible. One of the setbacks is the traffic is not targeted: it is comprised of people with the goal of participating in a million dollars.

Where ShopFromHomepage differs is it offers quality/targeted traffic in specific geographical locations for merchants and customers. Advertisers, for as little as $100.00 now have an opportunity for customers to find them through local city searches. For the price of a one day newspaper ad, a business can be profiled for one year; small businesses that have not had a previous budget can now advertise their location and quite possibly block out the competition due to the finite real estate available.

Pixelotto will generate curious traffic searching for a million dollars while ShopFromHomepage has targeted traffic searching for local solutions.

Of course you do, 2,000 of us clicked on your site for a chance at the million bucks. Do your stats say how long these visitors stayed at your banner? was it 5 seconds or less? if so, that was us.

I went to Pixel-whatever, and I don't get it. They randomly expose your ad, for which you pay good money. Is that right?

I still don't get it. They PAY for this?

Why not just pay SFHP a pitiful $100 and get constant exposure in your market niche?

Father Felony, now you see some of the forces of evil that SFH has to deal with. Providing the best service for the advertiser and we the customers has been blinded by greed.
Advertisers fled to Pixelotto to buy traffic made with spam and what a hefty price they pay: it must be some good spam! and again, is it any wonder why big business rules? They can get it for free.

What amazes me is that the pixelotto guy has already sold $200,000+ worth of ad space. Nuts. Maybe he'll let me buy 1 red pixel smack in the middle. Then I'll link it to a site that just says:


Or something like that ;)

Anita, is there now any doubt why so many businesses fail? They do not know how to advertise. And what's worse, they actually paid Alex for intentional SPAM!.
Perhaps prospective Pixelotters have read that they are really getting clicked on this deal! If you want to buy an ad in 1 of my cities; we can help you make a statement.
