    Question Do you rank online gaming sites?

    It is pretty common for affiliates to provide some sort of rank for online gaming sites. Sometimes pure numeric rankings are given, sometimes stars or other symbols are used to rank sites. Sometimes multiple different ranks are provided for sites.

    Besides voting in the poll, be sure to share your thoughts around ranking sites. If you don't rank sites, is it because you don't believe in ranking sites, that it is too complicated, or some other reason. And if you do rank sites, please share the factors you view as most important in ranking sites, how much effort you put into ranking sites, and how important you view the ranks in terms of the content you provide to your visitors.

    We do rank the gaming sites in our website. We use a multi-dimensional star system (yeah, pretty fancy way to say ) like this way:

    We consider this very helpful to the players, and also is a good way to show that our website is independent from the gaming sites (not only saying that the room we promote is the best one )

    We do rank sites. Ranking Criteria is the sum of: Best Promotions, Customer Service Quality, Popularity and Members Voting.
    We also do a Best Casino Sites List based entirely on what members voted (so the site/s with most positive votes shows in top).

    Gambling Grumbles (where you resolve your any gambling related complaints)

    Hi -

    We do, though could definitely do it better and actually thinking of removing them!!

    For me rankings are better than stars which tend to become window dressing. If its a ranking system with meaning that can easily be understood then its worth doing. If its just marks out of 5 and everyone gets 4 or 5 feels a bit pointless and loses credibility.

    In lists icons or 3 bullet points with stand out features of a casino work better for me. They mean more.

    In my case, ranking casinos is the main feature of my website. The final average rating of a casino is based on other 8 avg ratings. Complex one but objective. My rating system is dynamic. When adding or removing a casino, ratings of all others change. I'm always curious to see the ranking after added a new casino. Currently I have just a few, all being my aff progs, but soon the ratings range will be diversified.

    We do rank sites as well. Our ranking is based on trust, payment methods (both in variety and speed of withdrawal transactions), promotions, customer support, and game quality and usability.

    At the end of the day, we need to promote sites that provide the best service and products.

    I don't have a five star rating system for the casinos listed on my sites just yet, but I am considering doing it soon so I can get a better idea and understanding of what people are looking for exactly. This is something that everyone should consider implementing on their sites. GPWA has an excellent rating system for its threads.

    Yes, we rank casino sites. The rank number depends on the bonus offer, how trustworthy is the site, how fast are the games and the quality of the support.
