Sites like myspace have become massive on the net. Is there anyway of promoting casino affiliate sites in there, that doesnt look cheap and nasty? Do any of you promote your sites in sites like these and get players?June 11, 2007 at 11:53 am #739301AnonymousInactive
My opinion: thats that can give the US goverment more fuel. Myspace is predominantly a “younger” activity. I know there is adults using it at an increasing rate. But according to ZDNet under people under 24 make up over 46%. Almost, 1/3 of those are under 18. Why would one want to advertise on a community where 33-40% of people using it are under gambling age? For the other 50%? Maybe, but just dont look right and adds fuel to the fire in my opinion. US Government seems to take a hard stand on advertising questionable activities to minors (even if its a possibility). Take the tobacco industry for example, whens the last time you have seen a Tobacco commercial? Not since the 70’s I guarantee you.
My answer is Yes. I have seen some cheezy gambling pages on Myspace. They dont look good and they are there obviously just to get people to click on the affiliate banners. Pretty low in my opinion, again its just mine. Sort of like a person who once posted here who feels it necessary to spam Yahoo Answers with his website and aff codes. That too I feel is pretty low and ethically questionable. But what can you do?June 11, 2007 at 3:47 pm #739321AnonymousInactive

I have a gambling page on myspace. Only a few hundred friends though because I dont pay it much attention.
You can make a very cool page if your good with css. You can cover up the entire default layout with your own as long as you comply with the terms. You cannot cover up the advertising banner on the top and you cant cover up the navigation or your account will get suspended.June 11, 2007 at 10:31 pm #739341
I think I will be giving myspace a miss. Doesn’t seem that profitable.June 12, 2007 at 1:08 am #739355AnonymousInactive
It’s doable, but you’re pretty late on that one, been played to death, they’ve cracked down hard, and myspace users are numbed to solicitations, etc… IMO, time’s better spent finding the next opportunity and trying to get in earlier.June 12, 2007 at 10:10 pm #739457betprizeMember
it’s easy to use third party tools to spam myspace, but it’s not really our target market.
and that’s only if you wanna be known as a spammer … so don’t do it!
but reagardless, myspace is the internet’s trailer park!
anyone run any scratch off sites? lol.June 13, 2007 at 8:37 pm #739549AnonymousInactive
I agree with Rob472 that you can make a really nice site with MySpace. Just check out this one for travelocity: http://www.myspace.com/roaminggnome However, I do not think that just putting a couple of affiliate banners there will work for you.
Besides, the increasing number of MySpace members, leads to an increase in bandwidth used, which slows down the servers and may result in a “Server Too Busy” error message for some users who are on at peak hours. It happens very often throughout the day.June 13, 2007 at 8:50 pm #739550AnonymousInactive
Myspace is only good for one thing, a free inbound link.June 13, 2007 at 8:54 pm #739551supervinceMember
Thats a good looking layout. I wonder how much they paid myspace to allow them to cover up the advertisement banner at the top.June 14, 2007 at 11:35 am #739595
Its good for that business but the casino business I am not so sure, like earlier mentioned it is predominantly teenagers and early 20’s they will book holidays for gap years etc but gamble not so sure.
