    Thumbs up SEO Expert Gary Beal Joins GPWA Forums

    I'm very pleased to announce that SEO Expert Gary Beal will be participating in the GPWA forums. His name in the forums is GaryTheScubaGuy.

    Gary is a well-known and respected SEO expert in the online gaming industry. He spoke at the GPWA conference at EiG on September, the GPWA conference at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas at the end of November and also at the GPWA conference in London at the beginning of November. And this year Gary spoke at the CAP Euro conference in London and the AiG conference in Macau.

    Most recently, at the Casino Affiliate Convention in Amsterdam last week, Gary ran a well attended marathon session on SEO lasting three hours. Gary has also, until recently, been an active contributor at CAP on SEO topics.

    As part of an increased focus here on SEO, we have also made some changes to the organization of our forums. Previously we only had a private forum for SEO discussions in the private GPWA University section. We have now created a public forum for SEO topics: Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and have moved the private SEO discussion forum to be a subforum within the open SEO forum area.

    Please welcome Gary to the GPWA forums!

    GPWA Executive Director, Casino City CEO, Friend to the Village Idiot

    This is most likely the best news you have announced in a very long time Michael, not that I am downplaying prior announcements (so don't start a flame war).

    I met Gary last year in Barcelona, his knowledge is more than I could even dream about. A super guy, willing to help out, forgotten more than I will ever know. So happy to see him joining us!

    Welcome Gary! Can't wait to read your posts!

    Michael,
    Seriously, I agree with Chips 100% on Gary. I've been following his blog and comments he's made and feel he really knows what he is doing AND si willing to share his knowledge. That in my book makes him an extremely valuable member to the GPWA community.

    I've noticed that his knowledge is based on his experience and not on popular opinion. I really like that.

    The second announcement is that you have created another SEO forum that is open to me! That makes a big difference of where I spend my time posting and contributing as well.

    So.. thanks for making GPWA that much better quality site.

    Default Thanks All!

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Its good to hear back from people that I've helped whether directly or indirectly.

    SEO isn't rocket science, there's just a lot to take in and you're only as good as your network and your constant testing and collaboration with others that test.

    I've been a Moderator over at SEO Chat for 5 years now and even though its a dedicated SEO forum, you would be surprised how many contributors post theories and unsubstantiated propaganda, which is then believed by many and implemented, even though no one had ever tested it.

    So that's where I come in.

    If you hear something and wonder if its true or not feel free to post it or shoot me an email. I will test it if I don't have an answer or haven't run it through some trials.

    I'll probably cut-and-paste a few article I have written previously (but updated regularly) like my Top 12 SEO Tips for 2007 - 2009, link building 101 and Geotargeting. I'm sure some of the members missed it in the GPWA Mag or the conferences and they are a great place to start.

    I can't promise I'll get to it right away, but if you would like me to take a quick look at your site or you have problems that can't be sorted, feel free to send me a PM with your URL and your concern and I promise I'll have a look.

    Finally, I'll be starting a thread specifically addressing the tools (the FREE tools) that we use daily and another addressing Geotargeting. I'll post the tool, what it does, what I use it for and answer questions about them. These will allow you to do your own SEO if you're on a tight budget for this type of thing.

    The Geotargeting thread is because it is the biggest thing to happen to affilaites in a long time and its important to understand how it works, although it can be confusing. It will allow you to target soft markets almost immediately, but it need to be used correctly.

    Thanks again for your greetings and nice words. I've done this for a long time because I love the feedback that you all have given like the comments from WagerX, wagerprofits and Chips. The best part is when someone comes back excited about their new rankings, and approaches me at a conference saying thanks.

    I work for many of the3 big guys, more SME's, but my heart is with Affiliates because having been one, I know that the chips are stacked and you need everything you can to remain successful.

    So let's get posting!

    I'll start the geotargeting thread now!

    Welcome Gary!

    I sat next to Gary on the way to CAC a couple of years ago as I am lucky to live in the same town and I have seen him talk quite a few times at various conferences.

    He is a great guy and will add great value to the forums.

    Gary, we need to go for that beer we keep talking about!

    I have to agree.

    I recorded Gary's SEO session last year in Amsterdam or London (can't remember) on my MP3 and listen to it for tips now that I finished my site and have to do that part.
