Gaming and Advertising

Two of the most common things people do over the internet is gaming and advertising. Only a few people know that online games is one of the most effective way to promote or advertise. The more people who will be playing a certain game the more popular it will be. And when it would be popular to a certain age group, ads along with the game will run along with the popularity of the game.

A good example of this are Facebook applications or games. You will notice that there are a lot of Facebook applications that adds Google ads and other type of extra advertisements. In this way there are three ways on how the ads could be popular as well as the game. 

First, if the ads are connected or related to the game, there is a big possibility that the ads would be clicked since there are a lot of online gamers that are looking for new games to play. That is why most games or applications online attach ads in in games and applications that is related to the game so that the attraction for "clicks" in the ad would increase. Relating the ads with the game has been done not only in online gaming but other type of online applications, articles, blogs and many more.

Second, the number of views in the ads would also increase. Online games are played by people everyday that is why people would "accidentally" or "intentionally" view your ads since it is attached to the game. This is not cheating since advertising is done in a way that people would have more chance of seeing it by placing it at the right place and at the right time.

Third, there are online players that would take a break in playing games for quite some time. And if so, they would be able to find other things to do by the help of the ads attached to the game. It is quite difficult to imagine since people have their mind set on the game but they don't realize that when a game is "loading" or he game have some "tutorial" section it gives way for online players to read the ads surrounding the main browser.

That is why it is also advisable for online entrepreneurs and promoters to hook up with games since it helps a lot with earning online. Placing your Google Ads on certain game related blogs or online game applications is really helpful since there are only a few people who are doing this. If you would try to visit, you will notice that there are a lot of views in that forum but there are no ads. This is a good example on how you can target views and clicks by finding popular sites that could help you advertise your business.
