    Default Top 10 Google placement and expected average profits ?

    Hi

    I just wanted to ask what a site in the top 10 for google with a money keyword like :

    online casinos
    poker
    gambling

    etc.

    would expect to turnover on their affiliate advertising per month/year ?

    any webmasters care to share ?

    That's good placement for those terms, but there's so much more that still plays into it that it's very hard to say. Things like your site, your presentation, the casino itself - all those play into what kind of conversions you have, also.

    And then there's always this - The one thing we've learned over the years here at GPWA is that a casino can perform superbly on one site, and not do anything at all on a similar site. We have never been able to figure out why.

    Now, I'd like to know which one of the staff you are and whether or not management is aware of this devious behavoir and/or condones it - and I've written them to find out.

    I can assure you, we webmasters do NOT like this kind of behavoir - it shows you to be untrustworthy.

    Well don't that beat all...

    This is hard enough to do, without someone like that coming in here doing things that are so low down that ...


    Consider them gon from my site...


    It is true that the acts of one can ruin it all for the rest, and here is the PROOF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    No MORE TRUST TO THEM
    It's not the quantity of work you do, but the quality of the work you do, that makes you stand out in a crowd.

    Well, for what it's worth, I've spoken to this guy's manager and I now don't feel this was done intentionally.

    The portal is not owned by Phoenician Casino, but is held privately by one of the primary partners. He hired a new webmaster for it and told him to "go out and learn as much as you can about this biz". The new webmaster here was a little overzealous without full disclosure.

    It's an unfortunate reality that the "trust factor" becomes an incredibly critical element of nearly every situation on the internet. It's something we take for granted when we deal with people on a face to face level and can "read" them physically. For many of us on the internet, tho, it's not even thought about until we're rudely awakened by the deception of someone we thought we could trust; and unfortunately, the deceptive types have learned how easy it is to perpetrate on the internet, where they can hide behind their computer screens.

    It makes it much harder for all of us - people who weren't previously distrustful become that way, and people that are naturally honest have to work much harder to prove that.

    For the record, I've dealt with the management at Phoenician on several issues, several times, and they've always been completely forthcoming with their answers and responses, and I trust that. This situation shook me up, too, but after talking to Dean over there, I'm ok with the fact that this was just a newbie error.

    Can't see a problem with casino owning a portal, Crypto owns WOL and not much complaints around. And casinos have their own sites anyway .

    It was clear for me without Cindy info that this portal is owned by someone big, you can't be new (as onlinegambling seem to be) and own such domain (it must cost pretty much).

    That's why I went to see who owned it.
