    Default How much money you spent per month for seo?

    For your gambling sites, how much money you spent per month for seo?

    On this moment I spent more than $1000 per month for seo for my gambling sites and you?

    Cheers

    Are you talking per site, or grand total?

    humm... how you can have good rankings in google without investing in seo? This niche is super competitive, I think that investments of seo is necessary.

    I spend zip on seo too.

    You'll probably find the majority of webmasters who are serious about making a living from this industry, would rather learn seo themselves than pay someone else. Especially these days with so many cowboys in the seo industry.

    The online gaming industry is a unique niche. Not too many mainstream seo companies or freelancers have the know how, least of which the knowledge to obtain what's required in this niche. Unless you've got deep pockets and can afford to hire someone like https://www.gpwa.org/member/garythescubaguy, your probably far better putting your $1,000 a month to better use and learn seo yourself.


    Cheers

    When you have such a valuable resource as you have here, and other places like Casinomeister
    where top Affiliates and Affiliate Managers frequent and answer questions there is no need to throw your hard earned money away.

    Anyone that can operate in this niche needs a lot of knowledge and contacts.

    The remarkable part is that noobs frequently show up here offering top positions for next-to-nil, and you get what you pay for...nil.

    Just ask questions.

    Indeed 0 seems about right. You won't believe how small and on a first look unimportant conversations here can turn to be serious business relationships, and soon you have every information you ever wanted.

    Plus as someone already said, how do u know now a days if you are not getting scammed. SEO results take time to appear on the surface. And if they appear how would u know it's legit. Questions like that should pop when you spend a grand per month on such things.

    Maybe I'm getting the wrong end of the stick here, I thought the question was how much your SEO strategy cost you, as opposed to how much paid to an SEO company.

    I think that most people here don't use external companies, but there is still an inherent cost attached to SEO - higher value directories (BOTW), software (eg: screaming frog, keyword tracking etc..), press releases (pr-newswire for non-gambling), content writing for guest posts...

    I keep my costs relatively low - probably averages out to a couple of hundred a month between all of my sites (gambling and non gambling) for the things I've mentioned above.

    On this moment I work with 3 seo companies, I spend on press release's for some sites when they have news, others in directories of sites and articles. Also in creative content.

    The last year, I spent much more in seo... more than $5000 per month of spending

    I have bought earlier a few SEO tools which I use more or less regularly. Otherwise I don't spend any money on SEO. I must admit I am too lazy to spend much time on press releases, content writing for guest posts etc.

    I don't know if you're getting the wrong end of the stick ... you're just not accepting the REAL answer from serious money-makers.
    No links bought, no tools bought, no money spent at all on the emperors new clothes.

    The largest laugh that I get from budding SEO experts are the ones that appear regularly in the two published magazines - GPWA and iGB - as they spout their jargonistic SEO babble-speak while puffing up their self-important profiles.

    Google and other search engines are not TRYING to trick people - they're trying to rank things fairly.

    Indeed, this is often shown by the fact that the websites that usually suffer during a new "release" of the algo's tend to be those websites that tried to "game" the previous algo to artificially increase their ranking above the level that their content deserved.

    You CAN spend money on buying links, buying tools, buying space etc, but none of that REALLY fools the search engines or the general public for long. If you cannot generate the content to get truly organic web-links and public interest then you will not make money long term.

    Crappy links on never visited pages - no matter what their artificially inflated PR is supposed to be - is still ... just a crappy link. 1000 social bookmarks that are never used - pointless! A "press release that's rarely read is valueless. And chasing the same keyword that the same tools indicate to thousands of black-hatters .. that's just crazy.

    Concentrate on your content - get it marked up correctly - and get it online. And let the rankings take care of themselves.

    Agreed, which is why you need to pay to get them onto a decent network such as PR newswire, which isn't cheap. But it has to be something that is actually significantly newsworthy.

    I have a new (non gambling) site that is about to launch for which we have hired a UK journalist to write our press releases, and for him to distribute so that it is actually visible. I am also looking into commissioning some independent research.

    Both of these things are intended as marketing rather than purely SEO, but the SEO benefit (from direct and secondary links) cannot be denied.

    Similarly on the gambling side I am in talks with a racetrack to sponsor some horse races (again for another new site). Again this is more general advertising with secondary SEO benefits.

    Well, we do spend money on SEO.

    SEO is difficult to overvalue, and we find it hard to stick a definite price tag on it.. given that OCR is one of the larger portals in the business, with thousands of pages. The SEO value of this is tremendous, and therefore does not come cheap. It's hard to place a price, but we'll spend if it's good for our site
