What is Pixel Advertising
The basic premise of pixel advertising is to create back-links from a popular web site to a lesser know web site.  The popular web site will have a higher Page Ranking (PR) and has a common topic with your web site.  This back-links will bring good traffic to your site and drives visitors and customers to your web site. The pixel ad over time will form a picture that develops into a mosaic art work.

Pixel advertising is a single purchase and last for a year and are sold in 10 x 10 pixels.  A pixel is picture element that makes up an image.  Hundred’s to thousand’s of pixel can make up an image. 

The Balloon Entertainment Grid is made up of blocks that are 10 x10 pixels (px).  These are very small images, but the image is not the main importance.  What is important is the back-link for a high PR site to your site. The 10px by 10px is the minimum format, since this is logically the smallest usable space. All the blocks bought commonly must form a square or rectangle.

Customers can purchase consecutive box to forum a large banner ad to make their advertisement standout in the mosaic picture.  These people will be noticed much more quickly and may receive more clicks going to their web sites. 

Graphics images that are creative will draw onlooker to investigate the image. Upon entering the pixel image a large image (alt tag) associated with that pixel graphic will be displayed.  This makes it easier for both the advertiser and the customer do quickly figure out what is being advertising.  Along with the image a description and URL is displayed.

Pixel advertising is just in its infancy. So it’ still too early to tell where it may lead, but for as little as they cost, the pixel advertising is probably money well spent. It is after all a drop in the bucket from an advertising costs standpoint. At the least, it will add to the collection of inbound links that all sites need to be successful.

No Adult Image or Content
No adult content of any type, including images, depictions or links to adult web sites will not be tolerated. If an advertiser modifies its link after approval and is found to link to adult content, it will be deleted and all payment issued will not be returned. Violation of this term forfeits all monies paid.

Box Size and Location Determines Cost
First determine the size of the pixel ad.  Each block represents 10 pixels in size.  If you decided in a pixel ad that is 3 boxes wide by 3 boxes high (3x3) then that is a 30px X 30px graphic image. Total of 9 boxes will be used.  If the boxes are $1.00 each then the cost is $9.00.

Resizing Image
The Balloon Entertainment Grid has the capability to resize a gif image. Looking at the example below you have three Order Pixels links. The navigation bar (Gray bar, white text) and the second link located in Here is what you can do. These links will require you to have an gif image designed to the exact size. This option is good for beginners or newbies who are not highly computer illiterate.

The Image resizing option is located in the middle example page. You have 0 pixels on order Order Pixels. This URL link allows you to first select the number of boxes and location. You will click on each box to activally select the the location. If you choosing 30px X 30px (3x3 boxes) you will have to manually selcted each box in that group.

Once you have selected the boxes (pixels) in the grid. Contune to check out/buying the pixel space. You will have recevied the space and will have to wait for conformation by mbd2.com to approve the order.

Once completion of the order you will go to Manage My Pixels. A grid will be displayed and you will see your reserved area in red. Click on the red box and a browse - upload option will appear. Find your gif image on your hard drive and upload the image to the server. The gif will automatically resize to the purchased grid size.

Pixel advertising sites introduce people to web sites that they never would have heard of before.
Some pixel images (pictures) will intrigue visitors to look at them and try to figure out what that image is.  These intrigued visitors will stare intensely at the image and will click on the image because of curiosity or based on your alt tag.

Seemingly a bunch of random stuff?
Well, let’s think about this for a second ... the pixel advertising sites are attracting "early adopters”. Early adopters like to have the newest gadget and the coolest sites. So, it stands to reason that some of these same early adopters might stumble across the "next big thing" or “fade” on your site.  Thus, quickly becoming popular and people will spread the word and drive hundreds to thousands of visitors hourly to your site.
