March 26, 2011 - Earth Hour : Bloggers Unite

8:30 PM Saturday March 26th, 2011 UNITE

This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming.

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney. On that day 2.2 million people and more than 2,000 companies turned off the lights for one hour to take a stand against climate change. 

A year later Earth Hour became a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries participating. 

Landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, CN Tower in Toronto, Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.

People of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. 

27 March, Earth Hour 2010 became the biggest Earth Hour ever, in the history of man-kind. 

128 countries and territories joined together and united in a global display of climate action. 

Again, iconic buildings and landmarks from Asia Pacific to Europe and Africa to the Americas turned off their lights. 

People around the globe, from all kinds of lives, turned off their lights and united, together to celebrate and contemplate the one thing we all have in common – our planet.

Give Your Site A Boost, And Your Visitors A Great Treat With Game Treat !

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of GameTreat for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Web site publishers and bloggers have always been struggling with the problem of  how they can lower their 'bounce rates' ( the percentage of visitors who enter the site and "bounce" (leave the site) rather than continue viewing other pages within the same site).  Bounce Rate tells you how effective the entry page to your website is. A high 'bounce rate'  means visitors leave your site immediately without  surfing deeper into other pages in your site. On the other hand, a low 'bounce rate'   means the entry page to your site effectively moves the visitors to surf more pages and dig deeper into your site.

Well, here is one good news for all of you! Game Treat Web App offers a unique way of engaging  and making visitors stay longer on your site! It is an online gaming application which can be easily installed on any site!  

man surfing webOrdinarily, web surfers easily grow weary after surfing the web for hours just looking for sites that catches their fancy. More often than not, after the first few minutes on the web, surfers tend to merely skim through sites ... bouncing from site to site ... stopping only and lingering longer on sites that may have attracted them a little - to investigate. This is where Game Treat Web App will prove to be an invaluable tool for publishers and bloggers. logo

Game Treat Web App allows site publishers to set up high quality game content right  on their web sites ...FOR FREE! 

The high quality game content on your site offers weary surfers a break from their otherwise boring surfing routine. Properly installed as a stand alone page in your site, the Game Treat Web App is a sui generis tool for engaging your visitors. It will encourage them to go at least a page over the entry page! Not only will this lower your site's bounce rate performance, the quality online games offered by Game Treat will also cause visitors to stay longer, with further satisfaction making them keep coming back for more! A whole new way of   developing repeat traffic and a horde of loyal followers!

Here's another plus for you!  Game Treat Web App has built in social network plug-ins which allow your visitors to share their game scores on Facebook and Twitter! Your visitors will be able to interact with other users of this application in other social networks... thus exposing your site to a whole new world of vast potential visitors!  

Here's more reason to install Game Treat Web App in your site ...Game Treat is an ad-supported application ...and with the ads published by this application on your site, you will  earn a traffic-based revenue share! How is that for a closer?

Installation is as easy as ABC!  All you need to do is GRAB the code from the Game Treat Website; EMBED the code in your site; and start ENGAGING your visitors! (Registration required!)


Let us take another look at how installing Game Treat Web Apps on your site will benefit you!

  1. It will definitely decrease your 'bounce rate' and increase user 'stickiness' for sure!
  2. It will help your site retain visitors longer by boosting user dwell time in your site!
  3. It will give your users a reason to keep coming back for more as the games encourages repeat traffic all the time!


There are three installation options you can choose from:
full size format game treat
You may opt to have a full size web format. This comes in either a 960x730 or 800x770 iFrame which you can install as a stand alone web page in your site.   I personally prefer this option because the visitor will have to follow a link within your site to access it. However, you need to provide ads and links to the App within your site!
game treat launchers
Or, opt for the Game Treat App Launcher! The App Launcher format is ideal for installation on your side bars. It does not contain the App Player itself but rather when clicked on, it launches a Full Sized App which then hovers, or "floats", on top of the web page. It is available in 5 different sizes, each with differing features.
single game treat format
Or, opt for the single game format! This App format allows you to offer just one game at a time, in 2 possible ways:
  1. A single, permanent game (can be changed periodically)
  2. "Game of the Day" - A single game, refreshed daily from your choice of game genre or channel.




Whichever way you may want to install it, Game Treat Web App will prove to be a powerful user-engagement tool for your web site! But, like any other tool, it will not serve its purpose unless you use it well. Which means, it is not enough to merely install it. You need to advertise it. You may even start a blog contest to promote its use! The limits of its usefulness is only the boundary of your imagination!
