The auction eBay for the last 1,000 pixels of Alex Tew's Million Dollar Homepage has ended.

The bids were as high as $160,000 during the bidding time, but at the end most of them retracted. At the end the winning bid was for $38,100.00. Still a nice premium, bringing the overall revenue of the site to $1,037,100. The winning bidder is an eBay power seller.
Alex Tew has initially setup the Million Dollar Homepage to finance his studies. Because of his huge success he is deferring his degree. Why study, if you already know how to make your first million, right? More details on the Alex Tew blog. BBC News also has recent coverage of the pixel phenomenon.

It is amazing how many copy cat sites contact me and tell me how their pixel site is way better and more innovative. I stick to it. There is no way those sites going to be that successful. Still, some of those early copies look like they have sold at least some of their pixel inventory.

The original million dollar homepage has the traffic now to launch anything.
Let's see what will be next from Alex Tew.
