    Question Do you maintain a database of online gaming sites?

    Many affiliates keep a database of online gaming sites. It might just be in the form of a few well-organized spreadsheets that you used to keep track of sites you work with, or it might be a large and elaborate SQL database.

    For this week's poll I ask if you keep such a database, and also about how many online gaming properties you have in your database.

    Besides voting in the poll, be sure to make a post explaining some background information about your gaming properties database and the information you track.

    Casino City started maintaining a database of land-gaming casinos back in 1995 when we launched the website CasinoCity.com. A few years later, when online gaming sites came into existence we added them to our database as well. That database has grown to be huge over time. I just checked, and right now we have 4,005 open gaming properties in our database. But that is actually the tip of the iceberg, since most of the online gaming sites that have opened over the past 20+ years are now closed. Counting closed online gaming sites, we currently have 14,840 online gaming sites in our online gaming properties database.

    In terms of actual data in our database, that spans the spectrum. Included is owner information, affiliate program information, software providers, games offered (we have an even larger database of slot games). deposit/payment methods, bonus offers, countries of operation and license information, and lots of demographic information including volume of traffic and the share of traffic by country.

    We think of ourselves as a database company, always have and always will. That perspective precedes our involvement in the gaming industry.

    Just check by catalog SQL DB, we currently have 410 of brands, 151 programs, and 7,616 games.

    We actually start building that DB to give our clients (affiliates) a better experience. so if an affiliate is looking for a brand to promote on DE he will have a list in few seconds.

    sometimes google rank you on a page you didn't expect to be ranked, usually a random slot you review, and you start seeing real traffic on that page. then you need to start looking for a brand that has that game on is list and accept players from your targeted market, payment methods, etc...

    having said that, without the operator side (casino and game software) corporation, it's impossible to maintain such a list.
    -casinos are getting close on a monthly (weekly?) basis.
    -old markets are getting closed and new markets opened
    -having the games list on the website is not enough, you need to know if the operator is licensed for that market, new games arrived on a daily basis

    we plan to solve it soon, by giving the operator access to their properties on our backend.

    Currently, we track data of 150+ online casino data.
    The main priorities are restricted countries and payment methods as we use GEO targeting on our pages. We track other relevant information for players, like websites, languages, game providers, currencies.

    Even the biggest affiliates convey inaccurate data on their websites, updates are yearly at best, which transfers to poor UX. My team and I. We are looking toward to build the right database service product for it; it's at the begging stage.
