Daily Game

Description

Daily Game posts a new flash game to your blog once per day or less frequently if you choose.
Daily Game will help your blog by:

  • Starting up conversations on slow days
  • Increasing retention since users are playing on your blog
  • Help you get links and improve SEO (your site will gain fresh content and flash games get a lot of links!)
  • Make you money! Use your own ad code to display an ad while the flash game is loading. These pre-roll ads get very high eCPM!
  • Satisfy your readers’ gaming needs!

The games we post are hand picked and guaranteed to attract visitors and improve your blog’s retention.
