I am always fascinated by niche Flash gaming portals who gain quite a number of visitors, and I already blogged about a couple of case studies like a math gaming portal: 4 steps to turn your Flash Arcade site into a two million visitors/month portal and a solitaire portal: How to made a popular niche Solitaire Portal site.
Today we’ll focus on another gaming niche, oriented to games which can be played by two players simultaneously on the same computer: two player games at 2pg.com, run by Italos Marios who started the project in January 2013 and focuses the attention in 2 player games.
The idea of publishing games which can be played with a friend, a family member or your little sister or brother has made the site constantly growing from a modest 1-10 visitors a day when it was launched (remember: less than a year ago) to a niche leader of over 10k unique visitors a day since and reached over 500k visitors last month.
The clean and good looking design with games designed for a specific target made this Flash gaming portal a success.
To keep site popularity increasing, 2pg.com publishes from 4 to 10 new games every month and it’s also sponsoring games in the $250 – $2,000 range so if you developed a two players game, get in touch with Italos through this page.
So the main ingredients for a successful niche gaming portals are:
* A clean and addictive design
* A wise selection of games
Hope to see more niche portals inspired by this case history.
