A brief history:
Set up in 2006 as an Arts and Crafts pixel advertising site and based on the Million Dollar Homepage that was conceived and created by Alex Tew a 21-year-old student from Cricklade in Wiltshire and the original founder of pixel advertising who built and sold out the first Million Dollar Homepage, raising it was said over $1,037,100
Having some success with our version of an advertising pixel site. That alas no longer exists, as, as with all novelties and advertising trends, the novelty soon wore off. We decided to extend our content and links to focus more on what we believe our visitors wanted. Good quality, easy to understand useful content. You will also notice that our link pages are not full of endless lists of links. This is because we try to limit our links to what we believe are the most useful for our visitors. You can learn more about our journey and be kept up to date by reading Our history.
