    Default What I learnt at LAC 2014

    I am starting this thread as I feel there is not a lot of sharing of knowledge post an event whether this is through discussions or in a conference session and it means many people miss out on some really interesting learning. For example the post I made here on parallax sites https://www.gpwa.org/forum/ranking-n...ds-216217.html

    Another nice little take away was around the fact that "brand" is a big part of the algorithm now so the key is to act like a brand.... For example create a proper contact us page with a phone number, name, address etc. Look at the brands that rank they have these where as very few of the low ranking affiliates do. Create a proper privacy policy and Terms and conditions, look at your link structure coming in, for example look at a big brand and 95% of their links coming in will be their brand, variations of it or stuff like click here, not keywords.

    There were heaps more tips around this but I have forgotten them however I am going through the conference videos and will post tips as and when I have them

    Oh and some interesting stats on the finance market

    Average first deposit for an FX trader in Oz is $3,000!!! and in Europe $2,500.... For binary its $300 but further deposits tend to be much higher.
    On average FX sites are paying $150 for just a lead through Google PPC
    3 Trillion $ traded on FX a day. Sometimes 4 Trillion..
    35% of FX trades are focused on the Euro Dollar trade
    Binary market is generating around $40 million of deposits on a monthly basis
    YouTube cannot meet the demand for quality FX education videos

    I have loads more on this space as super interested in it but will have to dig them out

    I sat in the session where this information was given. TBH a lot of the info was complete BS or irrelevant. For example, he neglected to say that a large majority of the FX traded is done by hedge funds and actual governments through banks so it does not represent anything valid for actual FX trading. Also, they did not mention that many (most) Forex companies don't even put the trades through the OTC and keep them in-house... much like binary.

    He also mentioned that on average a binary affiliate doing rev share would get 45-55% rev share as a standard. That's a complete joke as there are NO binary companies that give anything even near that, let alone having that as the industry standard.

    Also, the binary market generating $40M in deposits monthly is purely speculation as they have no way of knowing what the real numbers are.

    Rick, you can't keep these hot sites all to yourself, you know.

    Guess that makes me the lame-ass.....

    Direct links to porn sites will always be edited when found. (besides how else can I reduce others from finding out)

    I think those of us who look at those sites are already familiar with most of them anyway
