    Ok, first of all no one is allowed to laugh as I am pretty serious about making a million dollars from a website on which I have spent good 3 hours today.

    On ***** they were discussing about a guy who made $1million in 2005 by selling pixels on his website named 'MillionDollarHomepage'. Each pixel was sold for $1, making him $1m by selling a million pixels, and all of it was earned in less than 6 months. He claimed that it will be a history. People started buying pixels from day 1 as the idea was quite unique and interesting.

    Many people tried to copy the same idea and failed. But why? I really couldn't understand why. But when you ask people this question, the usual reply is that the idea wasn't original that is why it didn't work.

    But I don't agree with it; thus I have recreated this similar website from 2005 named 'AnotherMillionDollarWebsite' :p

    Same idea, same design but different time. Do you know why it can really work now? Because tendency of it getting viral is way more in 2015 than it was in 2005, making it way more important in terms of driving traffic for links on the pixels sold. :D

    In 2008 a report on Branded3 by Patrick Altoft says:

    Some of you might be wondering how do adverts look on Million Dollar Homepage. Here is a small proportion of the full pixel grid:

    Thanks :rolleyes:

    Keep us posted. They say history is cyclical, the question is whether you're in the cycle

    That is why I didn't post the URL. I will post the actual URL in SEO - Link Building (Market Place) section soon.

    The real question is : How do you plan to drive traffic and make it go viral?
