The million dollar home page is a website created in 2005 by Alex Tew, a 21-year-old student from Wiltshire in England. He created this page with the objective of being able to finance his university studies.
The main page of the website was structured as an image subdivided into clickable areas with the mouse, squares with a dimension of 10 × 10 pixels with a total of one million pixels. Each pixel was put up for sale at a price of one dollar each, which would generate a total income of one million dollars, hence the name of the site. Each purchased area became a link to the advertiser’s site, in the square you could see the advertiser’s motto if you passed the mouse pointer over the area.
Launched on August 26, 2005, the site became an interesting internet phenomenon, reaching a page rank level of 7 which means that it was ranked by Google with one of the highest ratings on the network, also reached the position number 127 on the website www.alexa.com which measures the total traffic generated on the websites.
