Will it hurt my rankings if I add a gambling site to my server. I want to try and sell some traffic to one of those online casinos. I want to setup a seperate doorway domain and push the limits but not spam. Well, even if I do spam so what.

Will this new "Spam" domain hurt the rankings of the other 8 sites I have on the server?

If it's got it's own IP you don't have to worry about it but I would be careful about the spam unless you are willing to possibly lose the domain.

Hi oilman/ Mike

I will just use one of domains I have lying around and if I get banned it is no big loss. As long as this would not affect my main ecommerce sites which are riding high in traffic and.These other sites each have their own domain but are all on the same server. Well, at least for the moment. The doorways I use of course will have different titles, keys, descriptions and content to certain extent. I guess it is not as spammy as those computer generated doorways I used when I first started.

Mike, on the $90000, are you talking about that guy offering $7500 a month for a top listing in Yahoo for "online casino"? That is one tough phrase and there are literally hurdreds of category submissions with Online Casino in the title.

I am thinking about this but I kind of like of like the idea of being paid per visitor sent. He is offering 60cents per visitor but I think he may go a little higher.

Shouldn't affect your other sites at all really. I've done some casino spamming in the past and it never affected the rest of the sites on the same server. Having a different IP address for each domain under a set IP block should work fine.

>casino traffic to another site

We did the same thing with the casino traffic but stopped it because it just didn't work out too well. Not because of the traffic, just because the guy didn't like the search referrals that much. You will really want to spend time on building your target keywords. Some of the casino/gambling terms just don't pull in as much traffic as you would expect. This is usually why people pay so much for the traffic.

Make sure you really know what this guy wants before you go through with it. Some of these people ask for the incoming user to go through 2 or 3 links before they will pay you for them.

Thanks Msgraph

I will spend some time on the keywords and see if I can find the perfect ones. Useful info on the 2 or 3 links before they pay. I will make sure that I am paid as soon as I have delivered the surfer to their site.

Hi All

Cyberbear, doing exactly the same thing as you.

Should launch our gambling affiliate site within the next three weeks.

We are going for a revenue sharing deal (players net revenue) which I know can be hell of a dangerous.

But, I figure that if you get it right and get qualified traffic it could work.

If the guy doesnt play ball, one can always sell the traffic to one of his competitors.

Any tips on tracking and the mechanics of the onlne casino industry would be useful!

Please do not spam you don't need to.
Do not sell your gambling traffic. Go for a percentage, some casinos will pay on the gross, but most pay on the net.

Hi Folks

I am about to start on a casino site and am wondering if anyone has noticed that most casions use frames. All my sites are non-frames and doing well and this will be my first framed site.

Here is my question. Is there any benefit to using frames in optimization over a non-framed site? I have been reading that Google and Ink are no longer reading the NoFrames tag. Thanks.
