Approved_icon

Daily Game adds a new flash game to your site once per day in a new thread\post.
The Daily Game plugin will help you by:
  • Starting up conversations on slow days
  • Increasing retention since users are playing on your site
  • Help you get links and improve SEO (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!
