Well sales have seemed to slow down quite a bit. I think it will be several months before it fills, which is better for advertisers because they get more time.
If you're the one who posted in the top left, it certainly works out for you ... nice job hybrix
Say No to Crack - humor and randomness for all ages.
Alexa rank has started falling, sales seems to be more slower.
pixelotto completed its life?
I don't like how they've added the frame on top of all the advertiser pages telling you if the click counted for the contest. The purple's such a strong color it takes your eyes away from the advertiser site. I had to add a bit of frame-busting code today.
Thanks for the heads up Dan. I just added auto frame busting to my site too.
I had high hopes for Pixelotto but unfortunately it seems it will never live to see it's potential.
So our ads will sit there for 12 months and then there will be a contest that nobody cares about by then. Let's hope this is not the case.
Anyone getting traffic from there? and is it 'good' one?
Hmm...Not so great for people buying pixels...99.99 percentage of clicks will be just to win a Million, not to buy anything from your website.
Dan, how many pixels did you buy?
Just one block; 100. I chose the position and color I thought most likely to result in clicks:
OK, let's see if my logic is flawed.
At $140,000 Alex has sold 70,000 pixels. Dan gets approx 70 clicks day. If each sold pixel gets 70 clicks/day then that is 70*70000=4,900,000 clicks/day. Each registered visitor is allowed 10 clicks per day so there are 4.9million/10=490,000 visitors per day to Alex's site. This is assuming that a 10 pixel ad gets 10 times the traffic as 1 pixel ad. Even if Dan's sweet spot gets twice as many clicks as the average ad that still means 250,000 visitors/day. I don't see the flaw in my logic but the numbers seem too big to be real.
Ignore the pixels, count the number of adverts because those are what people click.
There are 398 adverts. If each advert gets 70 clicks per day then that is 70*398=27,860 clicks/day. Divided by 10 means there are 2,786 visitors per day to Alex's site.
I suspect that the reality is that the number of people who click one advert is massively more than the number of people who click 10, but I'm just guessing.
I hope this fails, truly I do.
Nothing personal to alex but we are about to see another onslaught of imitation websites "oh joy"
2,786 sounds much more probable. I should have counted ads not pixels...and it means I have much better odds of winning the million.
I personally wish Alex luck because he'll need it more than his original MDH idea. I feel lightning doesnt strike twice.
It would have been wonderful if he came up with a web 2.0 equivalent of the idea where search engine strategy and keyword relevance (the heart of google's success) would come into play. At least this will give advertisers more of an incentive as well as increase their SERPs ranking. But I guess we beat him to it
Dan, tagspage doesnt offer permanent listing (MDH & TMDA). Which makes it no different to any regular link brokering program running on a tag cloud.
The whole reason MDH was successful is because you get to own your spot forever (minimum 5 years if my memory serves me correct). This new pixelotte is more focused towards renting of the space and clicking frenzy of course.
Correct me if im wrong
