So, i am debating…. and would appreciate some feedback.
Is it better to list just a few sites on your webpage …
is it better to sign up with as many affiliate programs as you can find and promote all th casino and poker rooms affiliated with those affiliate programs?
I can think of some adv. like people find your site because they were looking for the casino page …found yours… then went to the page they were after..

With my main site i sold i had 4 reviews on front page and a total of 16 in the reviews section, that worked very well for me, i also had over 100 pages of unique gambling related content. People new to gambling online dont want to be overwhelmed with reviews, sites full of reviews work for some but me personally would never go that route.June 8, 2007 at 8:05 pm #739162AnonymousInactive
I prefer to have a lot of reviews on my site. Of course I have several programs which I promote better than others on my site.June 8, 2007 at 8:15 pm #739164AnonymousInactive
Personally, I would only promote casinos that pay me. There is no point in joining and promoting as many affiliate programs as possible if program #1 doesn’t pay, program #2 is full of predatory terms and conditions, program #3 has dodgey statistical reports, etc… It would just be like rolling up money and smoking it :rasta:
The other thing is that if you sent a player to a casino that didn’t pay them, then chances are that player won’t be back looking for other recommendations from your site again.June 8, 2007 at 10:09 pm #739172AnonymousInactive
I would stick with casinos you know and can speak about authoratatively. If thats only a few then so be it. I prefer to have a lot so it spreads the players and revenue out – less risk. But if it results in lower quality or “promotional” reviews, it could work against you IMO.June 9, 2007 at 6:55 pm #739203AnonymousInactive
thanks for the sound advice. I think for now ill stick to the 5 aff programs that i think are solid.
How about promoting the affiliate programs to get a share of sub affiliates?
Are those a good idea? do they generate i good source of income or is just promoting the casinos and poker rooms better time spent?

It depends. Personally I believe it is better to join more than one affiliate program and do a review on it and then I think it would be better to know go to beyond and signup with to many as the less you are with the more you can focus on them. The more you have the harder it is to reach your minimum payout levels on them all.June 9, 2007 at 7:46 pm #739206AnonymousInactive
so trueeeeeeeeeeeeeeee about min. payout. That got overlookedJune 9, 2007 at 8:35 pm #739208supervinceMember
Having a lot of reviews can be a great benefit. Many people will search for reviews before they deposit at a casino. So if you have a lot of reviews and they are ranking well for the term “
review” then you will have a lot of pages bringing in traffic. Even with the bad casinos, you can write a review telling people why they should NOT play at that casino then recommend them a better casino.June 9, 2007 at 9:44 pm #739211AnonymousInactive
Don’t put all casinos you can find on your website. Try to test the casino, before you will put it on your site. Select 10-20 brands of which 4-5 place on your homepage and the rest in reviews section. Make sure to sort casinos from best converting to worts.June 9, 2007 at 9:52 pm #739212AnonymousInactive
Depending on your website, there’s also minimum payouts to keep in mind, I probably have about 20 accounts with revenue that is below the minimum payout amount.
I do like to have A LOT of reviews, because I want the search terms.. however, it does lead to my visitors having a lot to choose from, and some of the programs that don’t get enough exposure end up with a deposit or two that I never benefit from.
