Creating a Succesful Arcade Gaming Site

This has got to be the type of site I am most experienced with, I probably think this because I own the flash gaming site No Games Allowed. These type of site’s are not easily made without some sort of cms (content management system), or custom scripts. I made mine with pure html and I don’t think I’ll ever make a site like it again. It’s just way to much work for the average person to handle. I suggest buying a script, or learning php and making your own script. Site’s like addictinggames.com or heavygames.com are making the big bucks from their gaming site’s now, but it would be very hard for anybody to start a website now, and then begin to compete with addictinggames. The point is, any website has the potential to earn good sums of money, but there are just so many flash gaming sites out there these days. I seriously see them all the time, being bought, sold, or traded on various webmaster forums. Your site will have to be unique, and you’ll need to know how to advertise it.

So here’s what you do:

Of course, your going to need a host. It’s always best to get paid hosting, but there are a very few free hosts that will work for this site your making. (yurx.com)
We’re not doing this manually, it is way to hard and time consuming, what your going to need to do, is buy a custom content management system, specifically for flash gaming websites. An alternative to buying one of these scripts we be to take the cheap way out and try one of the various crappy free scripts out there. Like avarcade or phparcade? I’m not quite sure, they’re OK for what they are (free) but nothing works as good as a paid script.
Now your going to want to use the script on your website, customize anything you need to to make your site look good. Here is a list of things users like to see in a flash gaming site.
Games On the front page: Games have to be close, it helps so visitors don’t stray away from your page before they even get to the games.
Bright Colors: People have always said that dark colors on a flash gaming website don’t really compliment the site, it should be bright, cheery, and fun like the games on the site.
No pop ups: Ok, so this is something that may stump you, since most of the big flash gaming site’s have popups, why shouldn’t you? Addictinggames, Heavygames, and any of those other sites that have popups, only have them because they are established… I assure you that any new gaming site that comes up will not get away with having pop up ads. They are a nuisance and they keep visitors away from your site.  スマホゲームアプリおすすめ
No Complications: Gaming sites with unnecessary complications just mean more work for you, don’t go and add a forum, or a blog… people are not going to participate in the forum, or read your damn blog on a gaming site. All they want to do is play the games, and that’s just what they’ll do!
Unique Feature(s): There are a bunch of flash gaming site’s out there with the same script, and absolutely nothing unique about them! You want your site to be the one people go back to instead of those other generic sites, so give it some special feature, or features.
Search Box: People want to be able to find the games they’re looking for, and having a search box will definitely help them with that.
Descriptions and Text: Without any descriptions or text on your site, there’s not much for the search engines to index in their systems. So make sure you describe all of your games, and whatever other content you have on your website.
4. Ok, so back to business, after your site is all designed and optimized for your visitors to enjoy, your going to want to upload some game packs to your site, which you can find for free all over the internet. just search for “free game packs”
5. Now put your ads around the site where you think is best, make sure you have your ads in frames if they are anywhere near your media. I think it is against certain ad networks terms of service to have ads out of frame near the media.

6. Submit your site to directories, advertise on forums, do link exchange, whatever you have to, to bring internet browsers to your site to play games!
