    Default Hi There! Newbie Question

    Hi everyone,

    I just joined the forum! My main skill set is within SEO and I was wondering, what channel tends to drive the most traffic to your sites? I'd assume it's mainly SEO? as PPC costs are exceptionally high.

    Any advise is appreciated

    Thanks,

    In addition to PPC being extremely high, most sites can not use ppc since there are some restrictions to using PPC when advertising gambling and gaming properties.

    Yes SEO is the main source of traffic for most gambling affiliates.

    I totally agree. The last time I used PPC search engines, I was getting useless hits from dodgy, spammy, orphaned pages.

    A lot of people get into this business with the mindset that its easy.. that they will rank for the keywords they want or they can just buy them, Most of the keywords that you do want you cannot purchase, and ones that you can are so expensive it's not worth while.. Social media traffic for me doesn't convert but I do seem to pull backlinks from it, Then we have SEO...

    If you want traffic you will have to work for it, Some people do this part time others sit in front of a computer screen 16 to 18 hours daily 365 days per year, Depending on what you want to achieve is down to how much work your willing to put in.

    Then we have the Spam sites.. I noticed a few today cropping up for the UEFA.. these are dedicated thin sites full with aff links that are quick to rank but usually tumble in 6 weeks...

    And then you have another easy option of buying a established site.. but anything that pulls traffic and converts is usually top dollar.

    I appreciate the advice, I know the SEO industry well and anything worth ranking for definitely takes some dedication. I wonder how many people actually do this full time as opposed to a trickle of traffic here and there on a part time basis

    I am afraid you will find many (positive) maniacs working the most insane hours.. I am one of them.. There is a thread here, about how much time is spend on working etc. In order to get even close to getting anywhere near to being a bit close to the top, you need a hell of a lot more than 'part time'..

    Competition wise: There are quite a few big boys out there, and once you've dealt with them, there are the hackers who rank, rank and rank, and then, if you manage to out rank them, you'll also find oceans full of aspiring gambling affiliates all wanting a slice of the pie. That's why I am saying: Part time won't do anything. You need quite a few extra sails on your boat for anything in the gambling niche. I wish you all the best of luck with it though, hoping you'll become successful. It can be done. Go with quality. Take it serious, and your returns / rewards shall be equal. Believe you can do it. Set a goal. Then: Work hard. Work harder than most others. And you'll see results sooner rather than later.
