Here are some of our statistics showing where we get most of our new players from. We just wanted to share it, and if YOU have any similar stats, please post them. It is nice to see where people get their players from These stats are taken from about 2000 new player characters.

21/13 Mudconnector
21/12 Topmudsites
02/07 MudMagic/Kyndig
15/14 Web search
02/26 In review
32/18 Referred by player
03/07 Other

Here, the first number is a percentage of how many of the new players that are choosing that option as referral. The second number shows how many of those players that achieved at least level 10 (in percentage).

For us, it seems like the most new players that actually stay and play the game, comes from the "word of mouth" of our pbase.

We have been running a banner at mud magic, but the results were awful. We are running a banner at topmudsites for a few months back. Mudconnector seems to produce a lot of players without having any real "paid" advertisement over there. We did run a month with a banner, but the results were minimal.

Enjoy.

I haven't tracked any official stats for my mud, but from word of mouth I'm a bit suprised player referals and mud connector don't make up a higher percentage.
