The Secret of the Million Dollar Homepage's Success

We couldn't be happier with the sudden and unbridled success being enjoyed by the Million Dollar Homepage. We heard about it a month or so ago, shortly after launch, then one of Nick's threads reminded us again at the end of last week. Anything this original and ridiculous deserves our full support.

In the buying guidelines, however, we did find one particular request that stood out:
Images must NOT be animated (imagine how messy the homepage would look)


Avoiding animated graphics keeps the Million Dollar Homepage looking professional

Um ... yes. We certainly wouldn't recommend any sort of graphics that detract from the grandeur of the existing static images.

Im not sure if you knew this, but the owner of the site acutally paid over $10K to have a PR professional promote the site.

...money well spent it seems.

It did seem to have some extra juice behind it.

the mass newspapers' interest certainly helped. after each 'news' item, it got 50,000 more buyers. i think it was all hype.
