That's 3 topics in the past day, all people trying to get us to go to their game's page and upvote it/thumbs up it/share on facebook/etc... I'm confused why they think this site is a good place for such advertising though. There are a few dozen visitors daily, vs. the hundreds you can find easily on YouTube and other sites - I suspect those users would also be more naive and quicker to support the products simply because a marketer asked them to.

Sometimes the users here like to play PC games so we fit the target audience.

Well it helps with google searches by making the link more visible.

I used to advertise by making accounts on message forums, and putting in my signature, links to places I wanted to get better google results.
I would then just make the font white, or super small so it wasn't even visible.

They don't have to be visible to people, just to web crawlers.

It worked pretty well actually.
