Amber the Dragon website
« on: January 27, 2009, 10:22:29 pm »

I don't expect you to be interested, because it's not SC related, but...

I'm making a game involving a dragon (the protagonist) fighting an evil sorcerer, Seraphatis (the main antagonist). It now has a website: www.amberthedragon.co.nr

I'm just trying to increase the traffic to the website, so I'll be brief. The website has detailed information on the game, a forum, a news page, and an image gallery.

Nice!

I can think of multiple things this could mean:
1. Nice website! It's really well organized and well-done!
2. Nice game idea! I can't wait to play it!
3. Wow! A forum! Now that's progress!
4. Ok, ok, that's nice. Now can you PLEASE stop advertising your stuff?

I'm fairly sure you meant either 1 or 2 (probably not 4, you would have just straight-up said "I don't think SC fans care about this"), but which one?

I think I meant nice website mostly, that seemed to be the topic of the thread.

I’m not so much into children’s dragon stories, or related games but I wish you all the best.

Umm... If children these days are into stories about a dark sorcerer killing a king to claim the throne, and then the king's daughter seeking to kill that dark sorcerer to have revenge, then I'm worried for them. Wink

Sounds like one of Grimm's Tales to me, actually, which make it older than videogames for sure.

How can a videogame be older than videogames? Huh

Hey all! I need a bit of advice.

I'm sure you can see my Adsense ads, right?

Well, none of my ads have recieved any clicks (none at all). And apparently there've been over 200 page impressions.

Would you say I could do a better job laying out the ads? Am I doing something wrong?

Not if I don't go to your website. Tongue

Yeah - advertising your site to people not stupid enough to click ads.

In other words, there's no point advertising because absolutely nobody clicks on them?

Um, ha ha?

Even I click on ads sometimes.

I didn't even notice the ads fiirst time around, I had to go back and check. I assume Adsense is the same as Google ads, right? Taking a wild stab in the dark, I'd say you have two problems. First off, the smaller problem is that your ads are placed at the end of the page. When people are done reading a section they are just going to click "Next" rtaher than scroll down to the commercials.

Secondly and more importantly, you've either not thought very hard about your keywords or someone else has set them up in a very stupid manner. My GoogleAds on the first page are: "Talking Website Character, Luscious Amber Beads, Baltic Amber Pendants and Amber Necklace". Out of those, only the first one sounds remotely interesting, and I still wouldn't click it. It seems your marketing thinks that "Amber the Dragon" is a site which pulls in people interested in the material amber. I don't think a large percent of your visitors are going to be interested in amber jewelry though.

Keep in mind that I just looked at your first page, if you've more interesting ads elsewhere I missed them.

The problem, as I see it, is that those AdSense ads are attached to a Jaychant webpage. Of course nobody is clicking on them!
