The past couple of days there's been a traffic spike from our Million Dollar Homepage
ad. I'm seeing a similar spike in traffic from the pixel ads we've bought from other sites where this pixel advertising information page
is the landing page. There appears to be a renewed interest in pixel ads. Looks like that's because Alex Tew (who created the Million Dollar Home Page) is close to reaching the million dollar mark. There's another wave of press covering the story. Example: Unique Site Nets College Student $1 Million
. That's one nice feature of pixel advertising versus search engine advertising - you pay a fixed amount yet if the press continually picks up on the story, you get waves of traffic but don't have to pay per click fees for the increased traffic. I still don't think pixel ads are as effective as search engine ads, but I do see the appeal, particularly for sites targeting a broad audience.Technorati tags: pixel ads,pixel advertising,alex tew,million dollar homepage,advertising,marketing,million dollar home page
Note: I'm trying more Technorati tags in this post. Don't want to include too many. Have been using 5 as a max. What's good tagging etiquette? More tags? Less tags?
