    Hi

    I have notice that some webmasters are buying old domains (Not Related to gambling) and using it for link exchange.

    for example: they buy a real estate domain with high rank , change the design and show it as a casino site, then they try to sell / Exchange links with it, triangle of course.

    I think it’s a big joke because the rank is fake and have nothing to do with the industry.

    A little advice – when the domain is not making sense, check the doamin at archive.org.

    What do you think about that???

    Yes, this is indeed a trick some webmasters are using.

    Thats why I would recommend to only exchange links with websites that have good Google rankings for gambling related terms.

    I typically only exchange with CAP / GPWA members… and AGD members (of course).

    I do look at all websites, though, and make sure that they are ‘on the up and up’.

    This is really good advice and something I think a lot of newbies fail to understand. You get far more weight with google from a link on a directly related page going after similar keywords and I wish I understood this earlier in the game.

    Edit: Actually let me clarify, I didn’t mean to insinuate that new webmasters don’t know the obvious benefit of getting gambling related links. Only to take it a step further. For example if your going after “poker bonus codes” and have a choice between 1 webpage going after online poker that has 1K incoming links, then another webpage going after poker bonus codes with only 500 incoming links, I choose the second option.

    BonusGeek, James you both right

    That is why I think you should always look for sites that are the most related to your keywords, and of course a honest website.

    Don’t jump on each link that you find…
    1 quality link is worte much more then 10 fakes.

    Many also are blinded by PR value. I had a site that got a pr 7 but i didnt rank well for the main keyword (non gambling) got +-2 visits a day

    heck i dont know why google gave it pr 7!!

    now it dropped to 2 but took 6 months…

    so… pr has nothing to do with traffic

    I agree with casinotime. PR means nothing. We would like to exchange links with good design good content gambling related websites. of course, the honest websites.
