    Smile Top-Online-Casinos

    Hi there guys, this will be my first post here at GPWA....hope i'll get to know you guys a whole lot better!

    Anyways, I own Top-Online-Casinos

    Iv had the site for a little over 2 years now...Iv managed to accumulate a little over 300 pages of unique content, and around 300 reciprocol links etc. Iv submitted to many directories and SE's....but believe it or not, this site hasnt made a single dollar! I only get around 20 hits or so...and thats abt it (from being part of the web-ring Gamblersbliss created). None really targeted to anything! I assume its more webmasters just surfin around at my site. Does anyone here have any advice on how to get more hits? Or any advice at all?!?

    Regards

    I can 't say that I understand it. Gamblersbliss has always created beautiful sites that should make money but without visitors, I cannot see the point. Both Topboss and myself have commented that we would love to buy one of his sites, they are truly excellent.

    My advice would be to drop the shroud of "casinos, online casinos, and casinos online". That is a mantle worn best by BIG .com and .net sites. Go for terms that are far less competitive. Spend a few pounds at wordtracker and find some terms that target new casinos, new games, and yes, even best casinos and so forth. Do NOT target free casino cash or free casino games. I have 2 .co.za's that rank VERY high for these terms and I can get LOADS of visitors and almost no conversions. My slots site targets those people who specifically want to play 5 reel slots, or new slots, and even the casinos I review. Far fewer hits for each term but at least your visitor gets what they were looking for (your site should contain content relevant to that) and your conversions will improve.
    Have a wonderful day

    thanks for the advice. I just dont understand why the site isnt getting hits....I mean....nothing!!! Many dont believe me, but this is a sad truth. 99% of all the other guys get hits and make cash, using same methods as well as keywords etc...

    I dont know....feel like quitting this. However, feel there is somewhat potential. I just dont know what to do anymore. Its just been such a long time of doing endless content and links, yet no benefit at all, u know...?

    I feel for you man. Have you thought of leaving that site be for a while and starting another one? Like you I'm a bit stumped as to where to get traffic from, since I'm sandboxed on google, yahoo doens't like me much and msn changed things last week with its new update! But i think you have a really nice site though.

    Im actually thinking of doing a whole new site. Just using the content, but changing template style and all. Making it look simple like most sites. And when I do reciprocol linking, Il only look for sites with PR4 and up.

    Im seriously sad abt this whole issue....just dont know what to do anymore

    Just stick with it... I've struggled for years and just this year started making anything. Every month this year has been a little better... And the only difference is the SEO work I've put in.

    Thanks for the reply, Ricardo.

    I think I realize your problem. I highly doubt your site, as it stands now, will ever make any money because it needs A LOT of work.

    Email me at spdrus@yahoo.com --if you want to make an arrangement for help.

    Unfortunately, my advice is not free.

    It's a beautiful website, better than 95% of the portals out there including my own.

    The only way to get real gambling traffic is by SEO. Therefore you need to get more links to your website. That is all there is to it.

    Casino Ranking, thanks for the complaments. The thing is...i dont know what to do now. First one tells me that my pages need to be optimised, then another says, no, its more links i need...but I already have around 300+ reciprocol links. Many sites our there dont have this many links, yet that have many hits. What u got to say about that?

    I was also told back at Winneronline, that linking to, too many sites isnt that good...google will look at me as a site linked to a bad neighbourhood of links.

    anyways, is it the pages which need to be optimised or the links....cause theres enough links,

    300+ reciprocol links is hardly any, you need to get way more, there's them many affiliate sites now and with more and more popping up that the number of links will continue to rise, for example 4 years ago a site would only need about 300 backlinks with the words online casinos now a sites needs thousands to rank for that word. There's two choices, either be very carefull how many sites you link to and make sure there relevant and only make mininum money or hammer the links and gets thousands and rank highly for a while and make serious money. Work on adding fresh content regulary, aim for 300 link exchanges a month and never pay anyone for advice, all the info you need are on these forums and for seo sites like webmasterworld and seochat.

    I think we are all right - except for anyone telling you that you will never make any money. If you are willing to invest the time, you can make money - dont let anyone tell you differently. If you didn'thave anything of value, why would anyone want to buy it?

    SEO has two sides that I worry about... page optimization and link building. I personally focus on page optimization because if you page is optimized for the wrong keywords (or not targetted keywords at all) it doesn't matter how many links you've got. You've got enough backlinks to get top ten positions for second tier keywords - it will not drive tens of thousands of hits, but hopefully enough to start signing a few players a month up. SEO is a big job and rather complex managing keywords, links (quantity, quality, and keywords within each link), page content, etc.

    Of course I think that you should do some onpage optimization. But I also believe that the bulk of your time should be spent gathering links. I'm not trying to sounds like I'm an seo wiz, but looks up online casinos, casinos online, casinos, or internet casinos on yahoo. casinoranking.com is listed in the top 5 for those keywords.

    The only reason I am listed high is because of the backlinks. At one point it was showing over 40 000 links. At the moment it is over 17000. Not all backlinks are considered equal, backlinks from other websites that rank high obviously count more than links from an unknown geocities page.

    Hi r1card0,
    I don't know about anyone else, but your site loads extremely slow and I have a fairly fast connection. Could this be part of the problem?
