    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and we're the largest forum in our industry. We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are quite active 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've been opened since 2011, however, we've owned our domain name since 2004 and since then we've grown and expanded quite nicely. What are you waiting for, why don't you join today?

    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of games listed that you can try out and possibly enjoy. If you're still curious about a game to play, you can 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 done work in this industry as a whole.

    How can I help promote Virtual pet list?

    Well, there are a few different ways where you can help us promote VPL!

    1: Tell your friends about us and have them tell their friends about us.
    2: Place a link to VPL in your signature on other forums such as:
    4: Know of a blogger? Ask him/her to write about VPL and link to us somewhere in the blog post.
    5: Did you want to post a blog comment on another blogger's website? Comment back with a link to VPL and while providing quality content relating to the blog post.
    6: Do you use Twitter or Facebook? Follow us on Twitter @virtualpetsites and like us on Facebook Virtualpetlist.
    7: Tell your friends on the pet sites & sim games that you play. You can tell them via messaging, on the forums/shoutboxes or via profile comments. The more people we attract, the better off we'll be in the long run.


    8: Link back to us somewhere with our very own text link!

    9: These banner ads can be placed in your signature on forums on pet sites or sim games that you play and on your profile.

    Re: Ways to promote Virtual pet list!

    Those are some great ideas. Other things you could try are rewards for referring users. I'm not exactly sure what type of rewards, but you could potentially setup rotating advertisements, and for every say, 5 people you refer you get 25 clicks. The actual numbers would obviously depend on traffic. But I see pet site owners as the primary people (Not necessarily the only, of course) who will refer in mass amounts, and I think this would appeal greatly to them.

    I could set something like that up for you, as well (programming-wise I mean, for example to track/count clicks/views).

    There's a viral marketing tool by Mike Filsaime called Traffic Zombie, that is unique and would fit the bill for your needs.

    Take a look at it, and let me know your thoughts on it.

    I'd like to try it on a few of my sites as well, so maybe I can help you out.

    Oooo, well maybe we all could post something on our online accounts(that allow us). I have done it with FB and I am planning to do it, on a few VPS I play.

    Re: Ways to promote Virtual pet list!

    Do you have a button style image, rather than a banner? I'm thinking something in the 100x32 format that is ideal for putting at the bottom of pages? I have a number of links like that on Grophland already and could happily add one for you.

    What site is it from? We can remove it if we're not allowed to use it - or better yet - what's the site's contact information? What image are you talking about exactly?
