Million Dollar Home PageMost should have heard about the Million Dollar Home Page, i just went to look at it briefly, it is totally sold out and i have a headache after looking at the bunch of million pixels.

After the success of Million Dollar Home Page, there are many copycats replicating it using a commercial pixel script. However, these copycat sites lacked the initial novelty and most have failed.

Few months ago, a student, Graham Langdon, at the University of Connecticut implement the idea of MillionDollarHomePage into a wiki script, Million Dollar Wiki, making the first pay-per-page model of a wiki. His purpose is to raise money to pay off his college fee and to give him the resources to open the a bar in Boston.

After reading the post of Million Dollar Wiki at Shoemoney, i have the feeling that a lot of these paid wiki sites are going to pop out in the webmaster community. Indeed, i just chanced upon a site, One Buck Wiki, through the commenter here. One Buck Wiki is similar to Million Dollar Wiki except it is cheaper 😀 and seems more successful with its marketing. I just bought a page to try it out. Although it started as one buck a page, the price of the page gradually increase as the number of pages sold increase.

I feel that it is more worth it to purchase a page in such sites than at those pixel sites. Dont think anyone is really going to click at those mini pixels.

Anyone can easily setup such paid wiki sites, however, it is how well such sites can market themselves and help the whole paid wiki pages there to increase their exposure that matters and differentiate themselves from other similar sites. If you have tried such sites, feel free to let us know your result.

Well, actually the OneBuck wiki has been quite late on the scene. Million Dollar Wiki has got a whole lot more marketing than OneBuck.

Here are some paid wikis:
Million Dollar Wiki
OneBuck Wiki
Million Euro Wiki
Five dollar Wiki
Enwikopedia

Just search their names on Google if you want to go to their sites.

There is still money to be made with wikis. But they should target a niche not just free for all pages. Covering will give each page much more value. And if you think about it a little bit there is alot income to be made without having to sell 1000 pages.

you have a nice idea! a niched paid wiki. it could work very well if you have already have strong niche community. setup the niche wiki… provide some useful wiki articles, then email out to the advertisers that they can have a page there :)

It’s always hard to follow a success like Million Dollar Home Page. I’ve seen other copycat sites, and they forget that the novelty was one of the biggest selling points.

The wiki sites are, IMO, a waste of money. The idea of a niche wiki makes so much more sense. Now, who’s gonna run with that idea?

Never understood these kind of sites. What are the advantages for me if I buy a spot there? NONE.
no traffic no nothing. Sometimes I wonder how people can be so foolish

Money can still be made with wikis. However, useful niche must be taken into consideration. Otherwise, it would be difficult to make really out of it.

None of these projects will work without an enthusi- astic teamwork atmosphere in the group promoted by every facilitator available. ,

Now-a-days it is as safe in the mattress as it is in a bank. At least with the mattress you have someone laying watch over it.
