Below, you will find a chronological order of events which brought the 10milliondollarpage.com / 10mdp.com to become what it has become today.
When we first started our journey, we chose our own unique size for the popups. It was 350 pixels wide x 100 pixel high. It was like this up until today.
After doing a fair bit of research on advertisement sizes, we decided to go with a more common ad size - 300 x 250. This ad size is very well accepted by advertisers and consumers and would blend well with our site as well.
We initially had the popups being a bit transparent. The reason behind this idea was to allow the consumer to still see the other GRID images at all times. But after mulling it over a bit, we decided to show the ad with no opacity changes. It could have led to some confusion to the consumers if an underlying GRID image bled through a popup. So we have removed the transparent popups.
