About The Illumiblocki
About The illumiblocki

The illumiblocki gained deep roots as the former Crane & Dragon PBBG site dating back to November 23rd, 2007. It was in fact, the first wikidot site that I built. Since then there have been several incarnations of the website with the last version dating back to November 2014 and the most current version launching in November 2017 to include a new domain. This is the 5th major update to the original site and marks the 10 year anniversary of the site.

To Promote PBBG's

The primary purpose of this site is to promote PBBG's, otherwise known as browser based MMORPG's. There are plenty of sites that promote MMO's, most of them get a lot more traffic than this site. But this site is specialized and has strict rules restricting what can be top ranked.

So while other sites try to list all MMO's, this site aspires to present you with only the best, and within the PBBG sub category. This means that a very high percentage of visitors to this site are getting exactly what they are looking for, while a very low percentage of visitors to more popular sites are having a hard time finding what they are looking for. This is due to the fact that PBBG's found on more popular sites get buried within 1000's of pages while the same games are featured on this site. For example, I cannot compete with the very popular onrpg.com site, yet most of the time, I can generate more clicks to a web based MMO than a site like ONRPG. This is clearly shown by comparing a shared bitly link between both sites, as seen to the left.

The image above is a screen grab from bit.ly showing the number of clicks gained for the Eldevin PBBG over the course of about a year. It very clearly illustrates how a small site like mine can remain relevant when compared to a much larger community site. This is why many users, including myself, visit both mainstream and independent sites.

PC Games

As another function of the site, the 5th version will also include a list and review of my all time favorite PC games. This is something that I've been wanting to do for some time now. Rather than have a second site for PC Games, I decided on an unholy marriage of the two; PC Games and PBBG's.

Discreet

For the attentive, there is a discreet and third function of this site that is somewhat hidden. I'll leave it in your capable hands to investigate and resolve this function.
