Onemillionpages.com is hosting a new contest for an iPod Nano this week. Hidden on one of the 1,000,000 pages of the site is an image of an iPod. The first visitor to find that page will win a 4GB iPod Nano. Regarding the contest Jacob Jenne, co-creator, said, "It's not your average contest: we won't be drawing names out of a hat or judging anything. We're just giving the prize to whoever finds it."

Onemillionpages announced last week that their first contest ended well and an iPod was awarded to the winner. The winning page was 800,102. During that contest, the site reported over 2 million hits including hundreds of thousands of page views. The average visitor to the site looked at approximately 200 pages. "We're really excited about the attention our site is getting," stated Jenne.

The site is supported by a new style of advertising. Advertisers can purchase space on specific pages throughout the site the same way that one would buy space on a billboard. The ads start for just $1 each and remain posted for up to one year.
