5 Million GMA Impressions
August 31, 2008
The GameMaker Affiliation Service has now served over 5,000,000 button impressions!
Here are some stats collected through the service on the way to 5 million button impressions. Includes browser/OS usage of people viewing the banners, country reach and total impressions per month.
This data is collected from a large number of GameMaker websites so the information gives an insight into GameMaker users worldwide.

Imagine if you had a dollar for each impression !
Only 0.9 of a credit is given out for each button display – this was originally done to prevent members with popular sites hoarding up a large bank of credits that would never be used.
However I have just realised that this is not mentioned anywhere on the site at all (my mistake), and the service has grown significantly since 0.9 was introduced, so I have now altered it to a straight 1:1 exchange ratio. Apologies.
I’m pleased to report that the GMA affiliation has driven some traffic to my blog.
I curious about something though, the stats seem to be a bit off.
“On your website you have shown 4,506 button impressions…”
“Your banners have been displayed 4,056 times on other members’ websites…”
“You currently have 0 credits in your account.
1 Credit = 1 display of your banner on another member’s website.”
Shouldn’t the Credits be 450?
The stats are hardly reflective of a global audience – people using GM are more computer savvy than the average PC user. The stats for just GMB this month are – 56% Fx, 36% IE.
74% Firefox versus 14% Internet Explorer. Is Microsoft losing it that much?
