Project Wonderful

Project Wonderful is an advertising service created by programmer and webcomic author Ryan North[1][2][3] headquartered in Toronto, Canada.[4] Though it is not specifically designed for webcomics, they do make up the majority of its users.

Concept[edit]

Rather than paying for clicks, Project Wonderful is based on the purchase of time on a website. Advertisers bid on how much they feel time on a website is worth in an "Infinite auction".[5]

Usage[edit]

Many webcomics, including Awkward Zombie, Loading Artist, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal,[6] Questionable Content,[7] Qwantz,[8] MS Paint Adventures,[9] Sinfest,[10] Dr. McNinja[11] and A Softer World[12] use Project Wonderful as an advertising service.[13]
