  1. Hi all! I posted about my site to help developers earn more from web games using adf.ly here: Adf.ly was never the end goal and lately the quality of their ads have become far worse. So I decided it was time to create my own alternative, specifically for gaming! https://my-ga.me My-Ga.me is a URL shortening service which will allow you to make some extra money when sharing gaming URL's and perfect for sharing your own games. If you sign up you can create custom link for making a perfect url for your game. It's also a good way to get gaming traffic at a low price at only $5 for 1000 unique visitors. Thanks! -iDev
  2. Hey, I appreciate your input on this again. You are right with contract work and sponsorship but that being said I can't think of a way to tie that into the platform currently. Adf.ly boasts above a $2 cpm which isn't bad at all. It's not an end goal but it's an improvement compared to other web platforms. That being said you can also ask for donations and patreon subscribers as well as turn adf.ly ads off. Giving you more ways to earn and more choice. I want to explore more ways to help developers earn, work exclusively with an ad network or set up my own network in the future. You have to walk before you can run. That being said if you do have any ideas please let me know!
  3. Hi All! I'm a single indie game developer who has released games on steam, android, itch.io, gamejolt and kongregate etc. Though I felt like I hit a problem when it came to monetizing web games. I found with mobile games, advertising was the best way to earn. So of coarse earning from ad's with your small HTML5 games should be the best way to earn from web games but sites like kongregate only give you on average 25% of ad earnings. While even though I personally love Itch.io for selling games, you can only earn from donations when it comes to web games. Leaving you with the only option of hosting the games yourself, which means you are alone in driving traffic to your games. So I set out to not only design a platform that allows developers to earn from ad's (adf.ly ad's). A platform which is easy to use, quick to sign up and allows you to instantly publish your games online. A platform which is 100% mobile friendly allowing players to play your games on far more devices. Best of all, you will earn 100% from your game's players. https://play.idevgames.co.uk The play arcade is completely free and allows you to get your game online and start earning within minutes. It is the simplest and quickest way to start earning from your games with ad's. No need for API's, it's all built into the site. Also I want to make the point that I do not earn anything from the site currently, I built the platform originally for my own game's and because this was something that I wanted from a web based platform. I will also never charge for this service or forcefully take a percentage of your ad earnings in the future. The site is still being developed but is fully functional with some pretty cool features too, like: Embed your games easily on any site and still earn from every player Allow your players to give you donations through paypal Allow your players to subscribe to your patreon Turn off ad's at any time and turn them on again... Even choose the frequency your ad is displayed People can review your games Publish your games to the site instantly Keep your game private when testing The site is growing everyday and I hope you decide to take a look. Thanks, -iDev
