    I like your site. Looks nice.. and really fresh. I always enjoy seeing the CherryRed casino banners. They've got an excellent graphic artist.

    You asked for recommendations on your site?

    Well, the only thing I would suggest is dropping the link exchange script for a few reasons.

    First of all, the "direct link exchange" in my opinion is dead. IMO Google has long ago discounted reciprical links. What I suggest is to do a three way link exchange where there are no direct links from your site pointing to a site pointed back to you. That way the exchange is closer to an organic exchange. I suspect it won't be too long before Google catches on to the 3 way link exchanges, but I think they'll still have value in the short to mid term future.

    Secondly, using a script for reciprical link exchange is going to attract the poorest of poor website masters. Do direct face to face exchanges with strong forum members, and not anonymous free-for-all. I did exactly what you are doing now with your script. I found that 90% of the webmasters who signed up for a recip link removed my link within a month, the other 10% within the month after that. Even trading links person to person on V7N.com and DIGITALPONT.com was dissapointing. Everywebmaster I dealt with there had my so called "permanent" link exchanges reomved within 6 months fter the deal. Or they sodl off the sites and the new webmaster didn't honor the agreement)

    Thirdly, don't have a link farm "link pages", where the links are all found on a few pages. That doesn't look organic, and I reccommend avoiding that. What will be more affective is embedding the links in your content. Also, require your link partners to do the same. This is much more organic, and has more "value" for both the exchange partners.

    Fourthly, I'd prefer 10 solid high quality links on relevant pages, then 100 free for alls. I get better SERP'S. Also, take into consideration that the inbound links to content has to increase proportionaly (minimum).

    Why? well. I think that when Google tries to find the "valued" sites, they are using a "website model" that has reasonable organic growth. When I think of SEO, I try to assimulate the characteristics that model might have.

    At least that's my way of thinking about SEO.

    PM me for a link exchange offer, I'll do it!

    Cheers!

    I saw that you are copying word for word from other sites. (Wikipedia).
    You wrote,

    "Blackjack's precursor was vingt-et-un ("twenty-one"), which originated in French casinos around 1700"


    I found the same exact phrase in Wikipedia, and one other site.

    Copying others sites is a big no-no in the affiliate world. You'll find swift strong reactions against that sort of thing in the gambling community. Webmasters spend a lot of time generating content and value every word.

    So, buckle down and write your own.

    On the link exchange request page I recommend widening the table or div for the form a bit. A few of the form fields are wider than the white table and therefore look a little out of place....

    Also, I see that you require a minimum pr1 to echange links with you, and yet your own home page pr is 0.

    Normally I do not perform many exchanges with those who require minimum pr values since pr is not what it used to be and pr is not always a good judge of a quality site and certainly NOT a good judge of an honest webmaster who will keep your links active for the long term.

    Plus your form doesn't explain whether the page with the backlink must be at least a pr1 or the home page of the website we are linking from must have the pr1.

    You have taken one of the best actions you could do to get started by joining the forum here as well as a few other top Gambling Industry Association forums.
