Promoting Casino Sites

I was not very familiar with online casinos before I joined the Cpayscom2 Online Casino SEO Contest, I would never imagine that people were playing casino online!
Anyway, after spending some months on the contest (and also winning second on MSN) I have learned a bit about how online casinos work but unfortunately it's not very easy to promote these type of sites.

1 - Gambling/casino sites are not allowed in almost all the major directories, you still can submit to DMOZ though... but you'll have to wait for months before an editor reviews your website
2 - Not many people are willing to link to casino websites.. and those online casino websites having top rankings most probably will hesitate linking to a new casino site.

So, the best solution I found that you can promote your online casino site is to buy links from other sites (online casino or other related) this will increase your link popularity and also your traffic if you buy links on high traffic online casino sites.

Been A While Since I Last Posted

It was not very nice of me not to update on the contest that ended on the 1st of February
I finished second on I know if I had put a little more effort I'd have reached 1st place but bloglines guy is also a very good seo guy.

I've also received my rize of $2000 for those who were wondering if this contest was fake :D

Cpayscom2 Online Casino Winners Not Announced Yet

I am visiting announcement page since yesterday, they haven't accounced the winners of the cpayscom2 online casino finals yet. I hope they'll announce it very soon, I am eager to see me listed there haha. And congratulations to all who won, on msn, google and yahoo.

Only Some Hours For Cpayscom2 Online Casino SEO Contest To End

As am writing this post there's only

0 days, 12 hours, 41 minutes, and 34 seconds
Remaining Until End of Competition

It's actually 1:25 am here in my country, so they'll check when it will be around 1-2pm here.. I think this is going to be my last Cpayscom2 Online Casino post.. well maybe I'll post a last one when the cpayscom2 contest will officially end.

I was thinking what I can do with this blog which concerns Cpayscom2 online Casino only when the contest will end, maybe I'll throw some more casino banners. Don't know yet if I'll get the time to market the blog later on, anyway we'll see.

I don't know why I have the feeling that no one is very excited to know who the winner of Cpayscom2 Online Casino contest will be, there's no suspense.. The first prize will definitely go to bloglines, #2 for Dondor etc etc

Hmm it was a cool experience for me to participate in the Cpayscom2 Online Casino SEO Contest, I really enjoyed it even if I didn't put enough time in it.

J-8 For Cpayscom2 Online Casino

Yes, only 8 days left for the date we are all waiting for... Everybody must be working real hard on their

Cpayscom2 Online Casino

websites/blog these last days to try to have a chance to win the Cpayscom2 Online Casino SEO Contest. Dondor is back in the race at #2, bloglines is still #1 (he's using his "leftover" links for previous carcasher contest he wrote, that guy really amaze me, he surely know what he's doing, wow if he keeps his ranks till the end he's gonna win in all $12000, $10,000 for being #1 on, $1000 for and another $1000 for yahoo). As for me am not even sure of keeping my actual 3rd rank on Nowhere to be seen on yahoo and google neither for

cpayscom2 online casino

... my bad luck eh. Anyway Cpayscom2 Online Casino is the first and last SEO Contest am participating in, as it requires too much time and after working so much on this you get nothing... hmm maybe some fame but well the Cpayscom2 Online Casino was mostly for getting links to some casino sites so no fame for the winner.

There's another contest that recently started, globalwarming awareness something is the keyword. You'll not see silly posts by "sexy girl" in that contest (LOL) :P good luck to all those who are participating :)

Now let's talk a bit about that recent google PR update, that must be the most stupid update ever, my Cpayscom2 Online Casino blog homepage is 0 but I've got some posts who has PR2 or even 3, how come?

Ok, so here are 5 reasons why google sucks.
1. how come msn has only PR9? :eek: must be because it doesn't have enough backlinks from high PR pages. (stupid)
2. why you need adwords when websites like wikipedia rank in the top 10 for many very competitive keywords, it's because google loves when you pay, yeah google love your money. Now don't come and tell me wiki is a resource site and bla bla, do you think someone who's looking for a web design company really care about wiki? or is wiki offering website design service.
3. however hard you try you may never rank well unless you have lots of $$$ to spend on links (google love it when you spend your money to buy PR! it's their biggest invention after all)
4. Google directory = DMOZ = corruption
5. pffft am so depressed today, feels good to talk shit about google. ok to make it harder to read this part i'll make the font smaller. BTW I love MSN, haha j/k

This must be the silliest Cpayscom2 Online Casino post I've ever written, yaay it's my 70th post, wanted to make 100 by the end of the contest but I've not posted for more than a month... I wanted to reach 2000 visitors by the end of the contest but this also will not be possible I think.

Hmm I think this is what happens when you neglect a site, you should constantly be working on your site if you don't want them do drop...

2 Weeks Left for Cpayscom2 Online Casino

Wow it's been more than a month since I last posted in my

Cpayscom2 Online Casino

blog, was feeling lazy and a bit discouraged to post here, don't know what bloglines is doing to get on top just the day of the checkpoints, he surely know the MSN algo well :(... unfortunately for the other contestants...

Anyway, some thought that I was following his steps by not blogging (i.e working in background, e.g getting links and all) but I've really not done anything about Cpayscom2 Online Casino since I last posted (1st of December)no links, no posts, nothing. If you check my backlinks you'll notice there's nothing new in there ;) so please don't accuse me of anything before investigating :p (some know who am talking about)

One thing I don't really understand is how am still #2 without any effort for more than a month??? I think MSN loves me haha!
I won't do anything for the last 2 weeks neither... I just don't want to lose my precious time when we all know that bloglines is going to win the Cpayscom2 Online Casino SEO COntest, Congratulations in advance :)

Another thing I noticed is Dondor dropped completely from MSN search for Cpayscom2 Online Casino, why's that? Anybody can explain please.. Sometimes back I remember his cached date was not showing but that problem was solved. He'll probably get back in the SERP very soon with all the backlinks he has, good luck to you Dondor, I know you've worked hard on your Cpayscom2 Online Casino blog, don't know why MSN removed your blog. Don't know if you're going to read this, Congratulations :) read your blog and you said you were getting married, wish you both a very happy married life.

I'll just post here only if I feel like it. If anybody want to help me I'd be very happy, link to this blog with "Cpayscom2 Online Casino" as anchor text.

Thanks and Good Luck again to all Cpayscom2 Online Casino contestants

Second Cpayscom2 Online Casino Checkpoint Won By Whom?

My calender is showing 2 December here (yeah am GMT +4) and I haven't seen anywhere yet who is the winner of the second cpayscom2 online casino seo contest checkpoint :eek:
Is it Dondor or bloglines? Every time I was refreshing the results were changing, once I will see Dondor number one on msn and next time it is bloglines...

I also checked the cpayscom website but seems the second checkpoint winner has not been announced yet.

Noticed some changes on bloglines blog, he says his ranking is only due to links, well I think he's right now... I'll start working harder on my links than on content...

1000 Visitors For My Cpayscom2 Online Casino Blog

Everybody knows it's too late for me to win the second Cpayscom2 Online Casino checkpoint now, if only that silly msn bot visited my blog after the 1st of December! :D
I wanna congratulate Dondor for reaching the first position and maybe win that second checkpoint too, I am saying "maybe" because we never know what bloglines can do, 1-2 days before the checkpoint, he's too good at these.

I am happy today because I reached my 1000th visitor for my Cpayscom2 Online Casino blog (well at least it's what sitemeter says). Right now sitemeter is showing 1002, while statcounter is showing 1014... what's more accurate? I don't know but I guess it's statcounter. Hahaha not bad for a blog "not actually made for general internet users".
In fact I am getting many visitors who came for my "adding favicon to blogger" post but most are from msn while searching for "Cpayscom2 Online Casino" of course :D

So, only 4 days left for the second checkpoint now, nothing much can be done on such a short time but still I will try my best :) Got some encouragement from a friend today...

It will be silly to predict anything now since I think it's kinda obvious Dondor will win this checkpoint, nobody can beat his 2000+ backlinks in 4 days and even if they could it might very well get them penalized for getting links too fast.

For the months to come before the contest ends I will use techniques that many are not using or feel too lazy to work on, it's a bit silly just to follow what others are doing, since they did it first and they are ranking well with these so it's not sure that their techniques is going to help me.

Congrats again to Dondor for reaching the first place even without msn bots caching your blog again and Good luck to the Cpayscon2 Online Casino contestants... we never know what can happen in 4 days, after all 4 days is not that short.
4 days = 96hrs = 5760mins = 345600secs!! :D

Try your best everybody
