WordPress As An Arcade Games Site

I’ve always wanted to build a games site with WordPress and I’ve got loads of ways that I can do it and even have a few reports stashed on my hard drive half done but….. they all require a bit of that stuff that I don’t like to do too much of …..yes WORK!

But I’ve found an easier way to build an arcade games site with WordPress.   A new arcade games plugin has been released that makes it a cinch to build a site and start your own online games site.

To prove how easy it is here are the steps that you need to go through to build your own onlines games site with WordPress

Install WP on your own domain
Choose a pretty theme
Install Arcade Games WordPress Plugin
Sign up with Mochiads .   After you sign up you will be taken to a “welcome” page to add your domain etc.  Be sure and scroll to the bottom to get your Publisher Id that you will need for Arcade Games/Settings in your WordPress dashboard
Configure Plugin

Or just watch the vid that demonstrates it.   By the way, I made my games site in less than 10 minutes including recording the video below.   I had never used the plugin, read the instructions or any thing so if I can do it – so can YOU!

Finally, make sure you do your usual seo, theme customization and the like and of course reward yourself for your hard work by  playing WordPress games on your very own site :)

Oops almost forgot to mention…. it’s not all fun and games Mochiads has an affiliate program as well for you to earn some moolah :)

Now back to fun and games … I mean work :)

    Pretty cool tutorial but you should assume that not everybody has a hosting with Cpanel (you used FileManager from Cpanel), maybe a ftp client would have been better :).
    Adding games automatically is great and all but there are loads of websites that use mochimedia games feeds, that results in duplicate content, which is not good for SE rankings.
    Anyway, you did a great job at explaining how to set up the plugin and your aussie accent is a plus.

    This wont hurt much on website lag right? I guess not. I`ll try doing this and host it on a better hosting service provider, just to make sure everything will work fine.

    Cheers idic

    The code is for the thumbnail images to display properly and is set out in the read me file for the plugin.

    What is the code that you entered before the blog posts would display? Its approx 6:50 in the video.

    Thank you kindly

    I guess that would depend on how many games you have on your site. I’ve already disabled my plugin. I just used it on a test site so I can’t help you with the bandwidth that the test site would have used. You could try asking http://www.mochiads.com/ for more information on this

    How much website bandwidth does mochiads consume. I want to add this plugin to my wordpress site, but since its hosted on a shared space, I am worried about its bandwidth and CPU memory consumption

    Try using it without the thumbnails or contact the plugin author and see if there has been a similar problem reported.

    I am trying to get the Arcade game plug in to work, and while you’ve had an easy time.
    I HAVE NOT!
    For the life of me it isn’t working. I’m receiving the following error message
