It surprises me that it isn't viable to put ads on it. I imagined it would get a lot more viewers than it has done. Have you guys considered running Google Ads for NeoGamr? - I don't mean putting Google Ads on the website but placing ads on Google for the site to get gamers to visit it.


Maybe try get an ad on somewhere like gamespot / steam ?

Or a sponsor ad on twit.tv ? (Don't know if thats even plausible / affordable)

I'm going to throw it out there and tell you that the name sucks. I know there is only one letter missing but it looks odd, and doesn't have a good ring to it, the pronunciation is tragic.. The tag line is stupid also 'where unprofessional journalism looks better' works well for Neowin, why not have it gaming related? ...maybe a slight rebrand might help?

Personally i would just let it be it's own site.

I know a site is all about it's content but giving the site it's own individuality might make it more attractive...

The tag line was updated today "NeoGamr - The home of PC gaming" The name was debated before we settled on it, and I pronounce it Neogamer anyway.

I'm talking to an advertiser at the moment as well.. whatever we do it will have to be worth it.

The problem lies here. Back then when neogamr attached to neowin, i check gaming news all the time. Now that people don't feel like clicking on any external link other than the navs provided by the site or news links. Well, just my thought...

Damn, work proxy blocks Neogamr :(


Yep, sooo true. Nothing we can do abt it!

We'll be covering console hardware on Neowin, so a bit of gaming news will return to Neowin anyway.

Travesty! Neogamr shouldn't only be for PC gaming and console news posted on Neowin... I won't be visiting Neogamr any more if this is the case.

Can't believe you made so little on those ads that filled the sides of the page, I clicked them a few time accidentally lol while trying to scroll down.

I think that site should have a different look to Neowin's frontpage too, and have something 'gamey' incorporated into the Neowin logo.

What made you guys choose the name 'NeoGamr' btw?

I would've gone with NeoGamin personally, Neo-win, Neo-gamin.

/me takes a bow.

This is why I loved Ignition in the development phase, before we started adding any 3rd party code like ads, fb stuff etc. It's lightning fast when it's just our stuff :)

Offtopic - Veteran badge is now blue? I liked silver. The Blue makes me think of DaveLeggs developer badge

How do we tip news? Can we write own articles and send them somewhere?

Wannes, just post your article to 'Back Page News', and if they find it worthy it will most likely find its way to the appropriate front page
