    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advatange by promoting/advertising their games to our users and receive feedback/reviews from those members that try their games out. We support developers of all kinds from RPG developers, sim game developers to virtual pet site developers. We want to see more games in our industry come across more success and that's why we try our best to release as many guides/articles regarding online gaming development as we can.
    We're unlike other forums in our industry because we try our best to be there for our users no matter what and give them advice whenever they ask for it. Running an online game isn't an easy task, but with our many resources that we've built since 2011, you'll learn a lot from our online community. Please don't ever be afraid to ask a question on the forums because if you never ask, then you'll never receive an answer to your question and you can only improve by asking other users for help/advice.
    We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are very frequent visitors on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We also allow game owners to sell their game in our general marketplace
    In early 2011, we decided to make a comeback to the internet because in 2010, we had a minor setback and we had to re-launch without any content, but with a lot of time, patience, hardwork and effort, we've managed to rebuild the Virtual pet list community into something better than it was before. We actually registered our domain name on November 4th, 2004, but we were only a directory then and all we had was a basic comments system for users to post things on their favorite games..
    So, what are you waiting for, why don't you join today? If you have any problems figuring out our security code, then here's a hint, it has millions upon users and has been around since 1997.
    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of different games listed, so we're pretty sure that you may find some games that suits your needs as a player of sim games or virtual pet sites.
    If you're still curious about a certain game that you'd like to play, then please check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have worked in this industry.

    I am looking to start advertising BooPets at the end of February as we'll be coming out of beta round about then.

    I have seen Project Wonderful bounced around VPL as a way to advertise but I struggle to understand how to successfully advertise through them and also how I could/would measure how successful it has been/is.

    Can someone perhaps offer some insight or perhaps offer advice on other advertising platforms?

    Regards, Paul.

    I am planning to stop using project wonderful and find an alternative advertising. I am not satisfied with their methods. Unlike with other advertising companies the ads stays up 100 per cent of the time whereas with project wonderful, only advertiser will bid on the cost you ask for lowest as 0.05p per click per day. Most bidders will bid average ads for couple of days and you will likely to have empty ad boxes if nobody bids on it. I have seen other sites with empty ad boxes.

    Sorry I should clarify and say I do not wish to display ads on BooPets - I wish to advertise BooPets.

    Should I look at alternatives like FaceBook?

    Regards, Paul.

    Project Wonderful does seem to bring me in a steady stream of clicks, but it's not a huge number. I can spend, say, $25 over a month for only in the region of 200 unique click throughs. The view rate is very high though, so there is exposure, but not a good conversion rate. Of course that could be my banners, as opposed to the advertiser :)

    We had a thread about this before here Using prokect wonderful to advertise or sell ads.

    Basically, if you're advertising on PW - target the pokemon and comics sites.


    I believe the following users here also use Project wonderful
    @Keith @Zarabeythe @Slashmaster @Emma and possibly a few others. I think they can better explain the network.

    I'd be interested in knowing other people's click conversion rate for comparison, so I can tell how much mine sucks

    When you used PW to advertise, how many new users did you actually see? It's cheaper to advertise on PW than it is to advertise via Google adwords and/or facebook ads, but if you have the money to advertise, all methods are opened waters.
