    GamingBooth Arcade


    I would appreciate it if you would please review my arcade, GamingBooth. We have over 5,000 games and we're slowly building a very quality arcade site. What do you think?

    Thanks!

    It is a nice layout, the red works really well.

    As a "normal" user, one of the things I want most from a Flash games site is some sort of guide as to which of the 5,000 games are "best". Are the games listed on the front page the "best" games?

    With so many competitors publishing the same games, what do you do about duplicate content issues?

    The games on the front page are the most recent games added to the site. To help guide our users to the more popular games we have sections on the left side of the page. They include:
    Hot Games (games with over 100 plays)
    Popular Games (the top 10 most played games on the arcade)

    Really there is almost no way to fight 100% against duplicate information because for the most part all of the games have titles that they are best known by and we really shouldn't change that. I've been trying to write unique "descriptions" for the games, but haven't been able to complete them all yet.

    Thanks! I've been trying to add more and more quality games. The template still needs some work, but it's coming along nicely.

    Sounds time consuming.

    It is, but it'll help with SEO which will help bring in more traffic. Well worth it

    Great template! I like it!

    It took a while until I spotted the Popular Games section though. That's usually the first thing I look for... a "Most Popular" section.

    Great site with a twist of visual overload. For example:

    I saw your outline on the difference between hot games and popular games, but what is the advantage of having both menus? Less is more. Why not replace one with a small ad space?

    Other than the columnal limitations, is there a reason your current ad space is at the bottom of the landing page vs to the right like it is on your internal pages? I know webmasters tend to minimize ads on landing pages, but this placement may not add much value. Consider removing one of the existing menus and replacing it with ads.

    News page: The font for more news doesn't quite blend into the rest of the pages colour and font scheme. This font selection makes it seem cluttered. I don't know if this was a deliberate effort to make that section stand out. Consider achieving a more uniform look by placing it at the bottom of the current news article.

    Do you really need Top Members, Links, Statistics, and Friends listed on every page?

    Hope this helps! Your site is dangerous! I <3 a lot of the games you've listed!
