    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.

    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).

    Re: Ways to promote Virtual pet list!

    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?
