I saw this a few months ago and decided it was a stupid project which would never get any serious money. Oops.

Of course now the wall is filled, I imagine his pageviews will drop like a rock as everyone forgets about it. But I doubt he cares, and I doubt anyone on the wall seriously thought it would be a good place to get clicks-through.

Apparently it ended up being a good deal for them. They got an insane number of pageviews for relatively cheap.

He's made his money, why should he give a toss ? Unless he gave guarantees of availability of course. (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4621158.stm)

What I don't undertsand is why would anyone go to visit a page made entirely of advertising?!

How can it work?

If something gets big enough and gets enough media coverage (like this site has) people visit it and the advertisers want to be on the site when it does.

Apparently every advert is getting at least 100 clicks a day.

But I still don't understand, who wants to visit a page made entirely of adverts?

18-01-2006, 10:14:32
People who have read about it and want to see it for themselves.

That is fucking stupid. Say I was sad enough to visit it just cos I'd heard of it, why then would I scroll down it till I found an advert I wanted to click??

Most of the 'adverts' aren't actually adverts, they are little pictures and things so you don't know what they are for.

I haven't been to the site but I saw a picture in the paper and I was wondering "ooh, I wonder what that one is".

18-01-2006, 11:17:30
See? even those who wonder don't even bother to pageview, leave alone clicking.

18-01-2006, 11:21:48
I might have done if you could click on the link from the paper.

18-01-2006, 11:32:42
then you turned the page, and both the info and the interest were erased from your shnort-term memory
