It looks very nice and it is free for devs. But what can you say about its traffic? I see this: http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/http%3...ph&r=home_home Does it make any sense for devs to make their games free if this calendar has such a small traffic rank?

All publicity is good publicity.

Besides, it's good for building up reputation and for gamers as well.

Agreed - but it is the chicken and the egg scenario - this site was just started recently and you don't have instant traffic to a site. It takes time to build up traffic and awareness of a site existing. Also, I am not sure how Alexa works, but don't you have to have their toolbar installed which basically communicated back to them about your sites visited, etc (I coul dbe wrong)? Only the owner of the domain can provide real traffic stats - that would be interesting to compare to Alexa's stats

Here is another one just starting - http://www.todaysfreeapp.com This one allows you to request a date to be featured so that you can be featured on the same date as another site you may have already signed up for.

You are right john. Traffic is too low compared to other calendars but still i think it will grow.

I signed up with http://www.todaysfreeapp.com also. I'm in an unusual position in that I'm trying to drive traffic towards, what is essentially already a free app (my free app has a limited number of high score submissions each month). I'm going to make the app "free" server side by offering 999 minutes of free online play.

The thing is, I think it's important we support these kinds of sites - the new ones especially. I think we all understand the value of exposure.

You scratch their back and they'll scratch yours!
