    Its a unique concept, but surely the idea of advertising is 'get the product out there' - effectively show it off. With your website, why would they pay for a 'dot'; when the consumers have no idea where it leads. Advertising has historically worked best when it has been targeted towards a specific audience.

    I hope I'm not being overtly critical. :rolleyes:

    You could always try, posting links to it onto other forums, just like you're doing here.

    set a building on fire. Act like you're just a witness. Get interviewed by the media. Tell them the name of your website. There, advertising.

    This has already been done http://milliondollarhomepage.com/. Also, you need a page wrap/container so it centers your website to the middle of a browser window.

    Lastly, how is this really any different in concept to that of stumbleupon?

    Well, I thought it would be fun for the viewers. Just click a dot and see where you end up. It also eliminates any kind of "discrimination", because the viewers don't know what they're clicking on so that eliminates the stress of making an appealing logo etc.

    Go to Amazon and look up books on website/internet marketing, buy them and read them. I'm serious.

    You can read reviews before you buy to make sure that the books are not a complete waste of time.

    I do it all the time for whenever I need to learn anything new. I did some cold calling in work recently so I typed cold calling in to Amazon, bought a book on it, and it really honed my technique.

    Everything you need to know is out there somewhere, in a book. You just have to find it. And if you can't find it, congratulations, you've just found a gap in the market to write one.

    Basically a crappy version of "Buy a pixel on my website" dude, you might get it off the ground due to gimmickery but I have my doubts.

    You seem to be lacking knowledge in marketing, read a book.
