Well, downloading lively now, if it's anything like SL
then maybe setting up a storefront may aid PR and
TR. Can't see how much anything can do me any hurt right now
with zero PR.

"Lively" is such a new offering [webmasterworld.com] that no one would have enough time to talk about real-world results.

When it comes to PR, that only comes from your backlink profile. If adding Lively functionality ehlps earn your site more more natural backlinks, that can help PR. But links will mostly be based on what you do with Lively, and not the mere fact that you've got the technology.

Here's a link to the Lively Welcome page [lively.com].

I assume, when they say "Add your room to your site," that it's really hosted somewhere by Lively.

I remember talking with various animators in the 90s who envisioned VR stores on the web as the ultimate portal. The idea might still have legs.

Just an idea....

I'm sure it could be done well in some instances, but IME a virtual store front would make for a less efficient and streamlined user experience than plain old web pages. It's hard enough making a 2D site that is easy to use for 95% of your users.
