To be honest it seems a little bit to pointless...
But at least you got me adding up your counter... ;-)

I don't like the mix of link and text in the same style (menu), I think you should change the style of the info "Launched : 01.11.2005..." to the right on the menu line.

Nothing much else to say. 8 adds sold at $8 a piece gives you a total of $32 ?

Also two people paid $4 for an ad ...

Lol. Talk about original thinking. Honestly, I think you need a contest or a major fad to suddenly get that many hits. Not sure how your bet works but autosurf traffic exchanges and search engines are great free ways to get visitors, especially with as much space as you have on the page. You may want to tell people a little more about the bet (how you decided on the hit number, when the bet ends, etc.,) to make it interesting. A neat little site...good luck!

Personally i feel its the same idea as http://www.milliondollarhomepage.com/ and all the other sites like that, but not as good ?

I dont want to be mean or anything, but i feels like a direct copy of that idea?

Hm, direct copy?

In what way? It is in a completely different direction than that page.

By the way I have recieved some suggestions and comments via email from various forum members, so I have redesigned the page.

You like it better now?

Cheers

Am i really the only one that thinks those idea's are the same and the second is just not as good. Im 100% sure you took your idea from there, your footer text and a lot more is identically to that site.

Its ok if you got the idea from there, saw the guy was making a lot of money and tried it for yourself too, loads of people did just as you did.

I just dont understand why you would say its not even the same because it really is?

When I read this I thought it was kind of a cool thing to bet your friends. I would make the page look a little more interesting, though. Maybe move the links at the bottom over to the left or right and change your page colors to be more eye catching. You might get 2 pageviews from the same person. I also agree about making your page searchable.

well done, very good website, nice idea


what about lessening the width of your pages, no one wants to scroll sideways to see the contents. i know u got ads to show, can be shown by increasing the height of the page

what abt adding a disclaimer

apply for google adsense

True mate,

not everyone is Australian...

But almost everyone likes beer! So that can associate with that!

Right?
