People pay you money to advertise on the game.

Actually the site pays you money to add the game, and people pay the site to let them put advertisements on the site where your game is at.

i once saw at a local job agency a job for game tester. they paid 500 euro for the testing of the game killzone.
it sounds very easy. but to actualy get that job was very very hard.
you almost had to be a full journalist

So if you submit a game to the site, you get paid!?

Yes, you do. Think about it: the more games are on this site, the more ads will be on this site, the more money this site earns, so it would only be fair that they pay the developers!

If a website (AG) has more great games posted in, the website gets paid from ads, and you get paid from people playing the game, and adding it.

As a business that hosts the games, we have banner ads, sponsored games (they pay us to have the game on the site), "site skins" which is an ad on both sides of the main web site content which is otherwise just blue right now. These are the 'bread and butter' of our revenue and why we hate hearing that users are installing ad blockers. We also sell iPhone/Android games, etc., too...

That income pays to keep the web site online and running quickly, it pays the salaries of several employees, and gives us money that we can turn around give back to the game developers for making quality games. This is usually called a "license fee", and as I understand it, it's a one-time fee that we pay to the game developer. As part of this process, the game developer puts our "clanging swords and shield" animation into their game's preloader, and maybe add other features like online game save, high scores, etc. through some extra library code that we make available to you.

There are other ways to make money in a game too aside from license fees: you can have advertising inside your game (though we're less likely to add the game to our site if there's some other advertising built into it), or you can sell "premium content" through a "microtransaction" setup where we can collect money from users IF THEY CHOOSE to pay money for it.

It's likely they were of poor quality and not much could be changed to make them significantly better to be added to this site.

Submit your games to sites like Kongregate and if you get scores of at least 3.0/5 by a couple thousand people then consider submitting it to armorgames.
