^Very cool

"Back off, man. I'm a scientist."

Your theories are the worst kind of popular tripe, your methods are sloppy, and your conclusions are highly questionable! You are a poor scientist. Especially if you think the moon landing was faked.

I'll be sure to use the widget if I ever buy from Amazon.

If I may suggest (and hopefully you're not too terribly angry at me at this point), text-based ads tend to work fairly well. Google uses them to great effect, since they're unintrusive enough for sorts like me who cannot handle moving elements on an otherwise static page, but are still quite visible and able to draw the attention of users.

I've had trouble with google adds downloading trojans on to peopels computers.  Those "Click to virus scan" even when you x them out they try to download something adds. Not sure if they ever fixed it, but i'd rather not find out. 


Yeah Google can be as bad as any other for spyware etc. Like I said - in an ideal situation we'd just host all our own ads from game publishers and the like so we can be sure what we are displaying but unfortunately it isn't that easy to get them on board - something we are working on though.

You had that one Trauma center one. Any word if they would advertise with VGChartz again?

Oh, I usually don't use amazon, but if I do, I'll go through here. Also, I thought it was really cool when I first saw it.

If you drop a PS3 right on top of a Wii, it would definitely defeat it. Not so sure about the Xbox360. - mancandy

Well the company that did the Trauma one went under and we never got paid for it so bummer there.

There are other companies out there who do similar stuff though and we are looking into it all...

Bump for those who were not around this weekend.

How much do you get for every game we buy? How about for hardware and music and stuff?

I've already spent over $100 through this, I'm happy to wait a few days for games if it means site improvements and more importantly site growth.

Its 4% right now (see ioi's earlier post) but it can grow to 8% with greater volume.

For it to be a reliable indicator of hardcore purchasing patterns Vgchartz people (collectively) would need to buy 100s-1000s of items per day
