We have announced a brand new FS million dollar pixel ad web site. Which could be a earner for all flight sim web sites. What we are trying to do is advertise as many flight sim web sites on one page.

There are 1 million pixels for sale at just $1 per pixel. With a 5 year guarantee advertising this could in fact give you millions of hits on your web site. We are adding our web site on all top 100 pixel web sites and flight sim web sites.

The concept of million dollar pixel ad websites first started in 2005, with the unique idea of the Million Dollar Homepage. Originally set up by Alex Tew, a Wiltshire student who wanted to raise money to fund his education, these advertising pixels were sold in 10 x 10 blocks, with $1 for each pixel. This made it easy for people to get advertising, and the novel concept of the website took off in no time at all.

Very quickly, the Million Dollar Homepage had become a massive hit online with people checking it out from all across the web. At one stage, it was the 127th website on the famous Alexa ranking; it really exploded, and each company must have got some good advertising from it!

This rendition of the same idea, made to work with flight simulation websites, was well received at the time of its creation and provided the same novel idea for flight sim websites to hold up. It carried various different banners for some of the top names in the industry at that point, and was seen as a mild success until its closure.

The idea is such a unique and interesting one that it’s easy to see how it took off in the first place; after all, it’s very simple to see how such a unique and effective plan could make a bit of extra revenue for everyone. Got an idea of your own to try this out? There is a vacancy in the flight sim market!

This is a novel and unique way to get involved in the community, too, so if you want to try and take on something like this the idea itself has become massive; many websites in various different genres are now taking this idea further than ever before. 

Download iconDon't forget... We have a huge selection (over 24,000 files) of free mods and add-ons for FSX, P3D & X-Plane in the file library.  Files include aircraft, scenery, and utilities  All are free-to-download and use - you don't even need to register.  Browse on down to the file library here.
