Almost one year ago, I launched a flash games website called PLUGB. After marketing it, I managed to get more than 1000 visitors daily on PLUGB. Everything seemed fine… until the school vacations in the US started.
On December 17, 2010 (the last day before the vacations), PLUGB received 1442 visitors, its record. During the vacations, it received about 100 visitors daily. That was a huge traffic drop. I thought, however, that it would recover when the vacations ended. However, the visits were back to about 800-1000 visitors for one week and then started falling again. On February, it was getting only 200-300 visitors per day. Since then, the highest amount of visitors was 588 on April. You can see our visitors since the beginning here:
But why is this the end of PLUGB? Because I sold it. The new owner is Italos from Italos Media, who also owns many other flash games websites, like GameSting. So, after one year since I started developing PLUGB, it’s over for me. But it is a new era for Italos.
This doesn’t mean that I won’t be doing anything anymore. I’m already working on a new project and I’ll surely work on many others. I’ve already coded flash games, websites and some Python applications. The next step is (probably) a Facebook App, about which I’ll write soon.
