New rating service for GPWA members
The GPWA is launching a new service that will allow members to rate iGaming sites, affiliate programs and software vendors. The service lets you define rating categories so you will be able to rate iGaming sites using your own terminology. It also allows webmasters to share opinions about sites and programs. For example, when a webmaster rogues Grand Prive, he can use the service to let others know he's done so. And the service will link back to the portal page where he rogued Grand Prive, giving him SEO value. Follow this thread for more info.Recognition for November's active members
