    I will call Google about the UK stuff and report back. You gave me the idea, I will return the favor.

    So there are no decent PPC SE's that allow gambling? Heh, what a great time I picked to give some attention to my gambling site.

    SEO is not my thing, and I don't trust outside firms for affiliate stuff like this. I would rather invest money into my business than time and frustration from SEO.

    Has anyone had any luck with paid banner advertising on websites? Or even print ads? I am willing to dedicate cash to promoting this, I just want some guidance in the right direction. PPC was great, but I see that appears to be a lost cost, so I need to move on.

    Any print magazines? Websites catering to this crowd? Something scalable with a good return? The only way I know to promote gambling was through PPC. I didn't find other advertising methods to be a problem with RX or Porn- but gambling I'm not sure where to go.

    If anyone has any ideas they'd rather PM, maybe we can work something out. I will spend cash, but it needs to be as targeted as possible, and all the good SE's are not long-term ideas (if they haven't killed the gambling stuff immediately).

    Thanks,

    Try google.co.uk.
    Google advised me directly in an email that they were removing casino ads regardless of the country. I hope this means they've changed their minds! That would be good news indeed...

    I've had results from GoClick, 7search, FindWhat, Kanoodle, and eSpotting.

    FindWhat is pulling gambling ads soon, so I'd check with them before starting a campaign there.

    GoClick sent me a bunch of crap traffic, but gave me a huge partial refund (I didn't even have to ask for it), then the amount of traffic I received got very small. But I do see some conversions there.

    7search converts but not well. Lots of crap traffic.

    Kanoodle converts, but barely. And their editorial team is insane.

    I have high hopes for eSpotting, but so far have seen very little traffic.

    Bottom line regarding the 2nd tier PPC's: Be very very careful and test test test.

    BTW--I've also tried a couple of the gambling specific PPC engines and saw horrible results through them. Bettorsearch.com and Searchgambling.com were the ones I tried.

    Has anyone tried CasinoFetch.com?

    Boy Randy, you sure ruined my Sun Morn. But I still appreciate your input.

    sucks to hear your luck with the other PPCs.

    I was just sent a letter from Overture telling me I need to add more funds. Wonder what's up with that?

    Does anybody know what Findwhat's policy will be on gambling ads? do you think they'll let us run out our accounts and then shut it down? ifso; perhaps a wise move to load up on your account this month.

    what do you think? worse case scenario; we won't lose our money, right? they'd send it back to us?

    I have heard this same rumor about Findwhat. Can anyone here verify that Findwhat is discontinuing online gambling advertisements. Thanks!

    Here is Google's reply to my question about allowing foreign sites and what implies a "U.S. site":

    At this time, Google AdWords does not permit the advertisement of online
    gambling websites. Related content is also prohibited from ad text and
    keywords. To be as consistent and fair as possible, this is a global
    policy, applied to all online gambling advertisers and affiliates, both US
    and non-US.


    As a business Google must make decisions regarding the advertising we
    accept. As stated in our Terms and Conditions*, we reserve the right to
    exercise editorial discretion when reviewing AdWords ads created within
    the program. This only concerns our advertising and in no way affects the
    search results we deliver. Google offers broad access to content across
    the web without censoring results.

    Google determined to drop ads from online casinos by the end of April. It simply despite this, the ads can still be found lurking on Google. Google explicitly cited this as the reason for their pullback.
