When I first heard of the Million Dollar Wiki I first thought of the milliondollarhomepage. You know the story some dude sold pixels and made money. Hell I even dropped $100 on it for 1 pixel that you cant even see. To my surprise I did get a few hits from it…. not many but a few.. It was more for just to say “I was apart of it” more then anything else really.

So I heard about this site called Million Dollar Wiki and my first instinct was … ya… right another pixel page. But then a few weeks back John Chow wrote about the page and how he was seeing some nice traffic from it. I still was a little hesitant but I just keep seeing more and more people investing in this thing and I thought… damn maybe this boat is going to float after all??

So last week I purchased a page for $100 for Free Ringtones. In about 10 minutes I received a reply with my user name and password. I logged in and made my page… took about 30 mins or so (most of the time was spent getting images). I have spammed edited wikipedia enough I was familiar with the wysiwyg editor to make my page. If you haven’t used the editor it takes a minute to get used to some of the functions but its pretty easy to learn.

SO what to put on my page…. Well I wanted to do 2 things.
1) I wanted to make a post that there REALLY ARE FREE RINGTONE sites out there where people can get there ringtones for free.

2) I wanted to drive traffic to my free ringtone site.

So I made a basic review site but of course I listed my Free Ringtone site as the first one and its the only one with a hyper link… Some may think this is sneaky… I say smart. ufeelme?.

I set this up last Thursday then I kind of forgot about it. After all… the site owner says the pages will be online for a MINIMUM 15 years. This was something I was not planning on coming back to for a while.

So this morning I was looking at my Nextpimp statistics and low and behold… it had sent almost 180 unqiue visitors of which 2 purchased a premium membership to the website. Now the Nextpimp Premium membership is $19.95 per 6 months and it auto renews… so if these people stay on board for 2 cycles I already have almost broke even in… 4 days superhot! Now I don’t expect this to happen much but one thing is for sure – I will for sure get my money back.

So I wonder where the traffic came from… I looked for a “new sites” or something listed but could not find one. Then I checked out the forums and wow there is a lot of people talking in there. This thing might be a hit after all. A lot of the people talking in the forums area all talking about how they are making money from there million dollar wiki page.

The dude who owns it has sold almost 500 pages…. which translates to 50k! Being the site started about a month ago I would say thats pretty fricking good. unlike million dollar homepage I have actually gotten a measurable return on my investment.

Here is the bottom line. People are buying great keyword related domains everyday on this site. Are you going to take a chance for only $100 that you missed the boat on your niche? I am not.

  1. Its definitely not a site thats going to last forever, since its basically all a free ad, but I’m jealous of his success already.

  2. They allow reselling the pages so that could make for some interesting arbi results for anyone clever enough to grab popular keywords/phrases before anyone else.

  3. What a clever idea! The links will be worth it as their pagerank gets up there and it looks like their alexa rank is under 25k… sign me up

  4. Reselling a page? hmmm. I wonder how that’s going to play out. Will it last for 15 years? I wonder about that too. I think a lot about the future of the Internet. Will we even have domain names in ten years? Will TV and Internet be one? If so, will that turn the Internet into another entity that is controlled by big media?

  5. I remember when his website first started. My first visit there and he had sold maybe 3 pages. I thought to myself, this thing is NEVER going to take off. Then social bookmarkers and a couple of A-listers got a hold of it and boy did it take off. I’ve been proven wrong… yet again :).

  6. thats a pretty awesome deal to already have 2 signups and 180 visits froma site that just got crankin.

  9. I bought a site but haven’t made anything yet. Mine is the “Dating Site”. Lots of clicks but probably just from curious people who are thinking of buying.

  10. I tend to doubt when someone says “permanent link” or in this case “guaranteed 15 years”… it does not sound real, plus like the million dollar homepage, it can be a hit for a few months, but then the traffic collapses and in a year or two from now no one would remember or visit. It seems that everyone wants to use the gimmick of “million dollar”, but I think people are more cautious nowadays and won’t swallow the bait so easily.

  11. Congrats to the dude that started it. $50K in a month is amazing!

    Also if only 500 page have been sold there must still be a whole swag sweet keyword rich URLs up for grabs.

  12. I hadn’t actually heard of it before this post. But I decided that I’d like to give it a shot, I bought the page for the City I live in, that should give me some leverage for local businesses and linking. Who knows….

  13. All it takes is that first boost by a few big names! Unfortunately, that is hard to come by for many folks, including myself haha

  14. Dude you’re gonna single handedly make that site big. You should have asked for a stake in it before making this post 😉

  15. I want to buy one because it wouldnt be that hard to break even, Im just not sure which keyword to go with that will still be around and valuable in 15 years.

  16. Hi Shoe, Thanks for this. That is cheap advertising for 15 years. i have wasted a whole heap in newspapers over years, and the ads only last a day and they’re in the bin.

  17. Can’t get adult themed keywords. But there is a nice list of keywords on the site on the very top in the middle.

    I don’t know how long it will last either, but it definately has a better model then MDHomepage – with people behind the site and content on pages. It will def last 2 or 3 years and that’s all you need to make a great claim in it. If the reselling of keywords go big – it will last a lot longer.

  18. I signed up and after an hour and a half still have no user name and password. How long did it take to get yours?

  20. The shoemoney effect is on again. It looks like he sold 80 pages already today. Hope you are getting at least a 30% commission on signups from your blog!

  22. Sign ups are done manually – so with 80 sales in one day – Graham will busy all afternoon setting up your accounts. I don’t think he will be attending classes today:)

  23. Oh Thanks! I didnt know it was a manual process.

    Congrats to his success on making over $8,000 today phew.

  24. I just bought the personal-finance page there yesterday to see if it will drive traffic to my financial blog. It took about 3 hours to get my login info and I just threw up something there today, at least temporarily til I figure out how to best use it.

  25. Just checked out that page and found the web directory aviva or whatever it was called, bought a listing on there.

    As far as ring tones go, I wish people would realize how easy it is to make your own :/

  26. I bought “Coupon Codes” after reading John Chows review. Everyone has told me that I wasted $100.00. So I have been trying to prove them wrong. So far they are right. I haven’t made any money back yet. But I guess I have 15 years to do so!!!

    Thanks for buying a page. Maybe it will boost my traffic!!

    http://www.milliondollarwiki.com/Coupon_Codes

  27. I would think Google would look at this site as “paid links” and eventually penalize them.

  28. […] finding out about the Million Dollar Wiki from this blog, the Shoe has dropped $100 to secured the Million Dollar Wiki page for Free Rigntones. It looks like Shoemoney has hit on […]

  29. If you have a small advertising budget you should get a Million dollar wiki page to act as a bridge page (I think that is the right terminology for it). I got the page Money Making Blog last month and I have already had good traffic coming from the page. Or if you just want to monetize a single page you could do that with your wiki page. $100 is chump change for anyone.

  30. damn ! shoe should be guru or something, I just read the blog and got caught buying
    2 wikis, now I hope this thing will generate enough traffic to have me make my money back 🙂

    thanks for the tips.
    I know it’s not Question Session, but I only read this “make money” blog,
    anyone has other good readings to suggest ?

  34. Holy crap nuts… Actually, I never heard of such a thing until reading this. Sounds like a steal

  35. For those sitting on the fence about this, why not give it a roll? Think about it, two big name bloggers in ShoeMoney and John Chow have bought in. Yeah, they are self promoting but due to this self interest, they will KEEP on advertising for the MDW, which increases traffic for all and creates a spill over effect onto your page. I bought the Stock Picks page which I just feel compelled to mention 😉

  36. For anyone that is still sitting on the fence, you have two big name bloggers like ShoeMoney and John Chow who bought it. I think the day after John blogged about it, MDW sold 70 pages, and now 80 pages with ShoeMoney. This is exactly why I bought my page Stock Picks page. This is indirectly free publicity. It’s in their best interest to blog about it and they will create a spill over effect onto your pages…

  37. I baught a page, havn’t heard back from it yet, but I am very excited about the posablities. If nothing else, it will be a huge directory. Anybody know of simular sites?

  38. With the payback periods most people are reporting sounds like it is still worth the risk.

    I really don’t see why Google would though.

    […] Then ShoeMoney hit. Good old ‘Shoe bought a page on the Wiki. So is Shoemoney more influential than John Chow on the internet? Undoubtedly, the answer is yes. Today Shoemoney wrote a post about the Million Dollar Wiki, and his page for free ringtones. Well, the Million Dollar Wiki sold 120 pages today, netting Graham a cool 12,000. These sales are undoubtedly thanks to Shoemoney, and it’s almost twice the number of sales John Chows post riled up. […]

  40. hmm … alexa rank 25k after a month. How is this possible ? What advertising method did they use ?

  41. Thanks Shoe we will also try our luck on Million Dollar Wiki.I hope after few days this pages do rank in google and drive huge traffic.

  42. Hmmm that was a good investment?? How about sponsoring a car for my Blogging the Movie dot Com site. John Chow just bought one.

  45. If they nuke this site they would have to nuke all the paid directory sites too – including yahoo’s paid directory.

  46. Well the hype wanted me to test the waters myself. So i throwed 100 USD and bought a page called http://www.milliondollarwiki.com/Online_Money today. I recvd. my details within a hour.

    So the next question was what to put on it. So I decided, I will use the page to run contest with cash prizes. And lets see how much traffic it actually produce and the quality of the traffic.

    When in doubt, its always better to try! Its a matter of time, u could easily recover that amount with a couple of clever tactics.

  48. yeah, i decided to go for it too, just for the heck of it. http://www.milliondollarwiki.com/Search_Engine_Marketing. Was pretty easy to sign up and not too bad getting the ad code in there.

    I’ll sit on it for a bit and see what happens.

    One caveat: you can’t sell your page until Graham sells 10,000 pages. That might take a while….

    Folks we have to mount a serious marketing campaign to get a return on our investment!

  49. Looks like an interesting site. Will have to look into it & see if it can bring some real traffic.

  50. OMG. I am so pissed off. I bought the payday loans one over 24 hours before you and I received no information.

    I have the paypal receipt and everything. :@:@ What the hell Milliondollarwiki?!?!?!?!

  51. But where does the traffic comes from??
    I can’t believe that site can bring you more traffic than Squidoo which is free.
    Is it PPC traffic?
    Tried a couple of search for some keywords and this site never ranked in the first 100 results in Google.

  52. […] getting in this industry need to stick together.  Sure, it’s awesome to get a link from an A-List site – but how realistic is that these days?  It’s NOT easy.  But it should be easy to get links […]

  53. Although Alexa doesn’t mean much… this Wiki will get tons of hits in the coming months. I bet major news organizations will mention it a few times, plus bloggers like Shoe giving it some love. It’s a unique idea, it will bring in quite a bit of traffic (for now anyway)

  54. This is nice idea but i still wonder does that get so much traffic in long run or it just dies or how much people will trust the sale letter (the page) and make a purchase as the idea reach masses most of the people will know it is paid one.

  55. […] first reading about it at shoemoney’s blog, this looks like the first original copy of the “milliondollarpage” […]

  56. The Million Dollar Wiki is actually an ok ‘knock-off’ idea of the original. All of the other ‘knock-offs’ have literally just been carbon copies but this actually does have something new to it. Can’t believe I never thought of it.

  57. And it’s a pretty safe bet that page rank will find its way to the site in the next update with all the link love this site is getting!

  58. […] is what i am hearing around on the internet from quite many days. Big bloggers like Shoemoney and JohnChow blogging and talking about it, people making threads on Digitalpoint like this. Well i […]

  59. I think domain names will still be there 🙂 Once enough investment has been made in a particular technology it becomes entrenched and makes it painfully difficult for the marketplace to transition to anything else. Look at how tough it is to kick the gasoline habit in our autos.

    I’d put my money on domain names sticking around… In fact, I have — I just bought Blog Advertising. 🙂

  60. DANG dude. This sucks. I order the payday loans keyword way before this guy and he forgot to setup my account. Now I file a complaint with paypal, he just refunds my money and refuses to talk to me! >_

  61. Well well well… I had to buy one page also right now… will come back once I put there some text but if it is like you say than it should be good investment.

  62. Also it is good to be in the first row while the site is young enough and there are blogs like yours talking about it.

  67. Damn son. unfortunately, not everyone is having such luck. if you check out the ‘money’ page on the blog you can see only a couple of sites that have broken even. The hype around this seems to be waning a bit, and surely in 15 years, there will be nada traffic (see how much millioindollarwebpage has fallen since launch).

    It does bring hope, but it seems most of the successes are listed as a ‘featured’ page.. didnt check how that works, but yea.. the layout of the site is poor for spreading PR google juice around, as if it was fully filled, the pages for each category will have over 1000 links each on them which means 0 love passed on.

  68. Geez, you are really sold on this idea.

    Makes me think I should start my own ‘million dollar something or other’ and promote it by getting big bloggers to write about me for free swag 😉 no offense and not to say you did that, but it seems to be a really popular topic on big blogs now for some reason

  77. I would just like to post an update and say that I haven’t yet seen any traffic from my page 🙁

    Ahh well, I’ll keep building on it

  78. Some of these sites will never make it. But who would have predicted that the million dollar kid with his simple idea could persuade hundreds, if not thousands of people to believe in his idea? The media craze that followed was a wonderful lesson in PR.

  79. has this project stalled, i looked on it yesterday and the page count hasnt risen?? anyone know?

  81. Yes the thing is dead and buried, it doesn’t even rank for “Million Dollar Wiki” anymore and i was spot on not wasting $100 or even $10 on the thing for that matter.

    BTW Shoe, didn’t get given your page to blog about this by any chance did you lol?

  82. I took the page /Dentist but don’t know how it would be beneficial..
    Just took it for fun.. but their idea is damn rocking!!!

  83. A pretty good idea, the editing seemed a bit difficult but in the end even I managed to get everything working smoothly.

  84. http://www.vo.gs is better .
    i made with the blog shopping 3,35 usd in 25 minutes .
    i also bought 3 pages from wiki but the only problem is that hard to find a regular blog with wiki
    vo.gs vs milliondollarwiki
    vo.gs for me

  85. I blog without a credit card or any other monetary items. It’s all word of mouth, free advertising, and bartering. I don’t even have monetary ads on it.

  86. I had heard of this, but never gave a serious thought to it. Reading your post today, I am feeling like I can give it a shot for $100… wish you could have affiliate link for MDW page, you would have benefited as well if I decide to buy the page…. I am just thinking about the best way to use this page, do you have any ideas or shall I dive into their community forum.

  88. exactly. its all ads, so only advertisers would go there, so the only people that will view the pages are advertisers and curious blog readers. kudos to his success tho

  89. no one wants to link to an ad page, google will never give these pages a high pagerank

  90. I take that back, I guess it’s not all ads… it’s crazy though. dude’s already got over $115,000

  91. you still don’t own your name shoemoney on wiki or myspace you idiot! Can’t afford $100?

  92. These pay Wiki’s are for weenies. I don’t know why you and Chow get so excited about them…They are about as exciting as watching paint dry!

  99. Good spot man! Well done on grabbing that keyword. I’ll be buying a page later on. Thanks for the tips!

  100. i dont think it is such a good investment. I would rather spend that money buying quality blog reviews or banner advertisement rather than gettin a page in MDW

  101. Wow–that is a very good idea. 50K? If he quit now that would still have been a very successful venture.

  102. wow what a great idea! 50k for only a small amount of effort.
    How is your sim card ad going? Is it still converting?

  103. I think Million Dollar Wiki was a great idea. I’m getting my $100 together, and I’m going to buy a page on there to direct traffic to my blog.

  104. Can anyone confirm what traffic they get from this and if they made any money from it?
