    February Recap – $2,000 Milestone Reached

    This is my recap for February.  I hit a personal milestone of over $2,000 affiliate revenue in a single month, and considering February only has 28 days, I’m extremely happy.

    I miscalculated how long I’d be aware for in Birmingham/London and Frankfurt at some international tradeshows (I was away for a full 2 working weeks as opposed to 1) which means I didn’t have as much time to work on my affiliate stuff.  Overall though I did get a lot done and managed to get a new site off the ground.

    What Did I Get Done in February?

    Firstly, I launched a new site, iphonegambling.org.  I know I stated at the beginning of the month that I didn’t plan on starting anything new because I wanted to focus on investing in my existing sites, but when I saw iphonegambling.org was available for registering I had to pick it up to go alongside my successful iphonebetting.org site.

    Although “iphone gambling” isn’t exactly a massively popular keyword (less than 400 hits), the fact that I can build a website ranking for its phrases in less than 2 weeks and make $xxx per month really makes it worthwhile.  It’s already ranking around 5th in Google.com without hardly any effort.  Making new sites constantly re-affirms my network too and has NUMEROUS advantages when it comes to link building, SEO and leverage for getting better deals.

    I already have a couple of other mobile gaming domains which I plan to monetise in the future.  Overall I think that mobile gaming is going to become a lot more valuable in the months to come (particular casino/gambling/sports betting).  I don’t think that mobile poker will ever take off to be honest.

    Success with my Spread Betting Site

    I mentioned some problems that I had with my spread betting site in my January affiliate blog.  It wasn’t receiving as much traffic as I expected for its keywords so I decided to try and geotarget the site to UK in webmaster tools.

    I’m happy to report that after geotargeting my site to UK users my traffic has increased massively. In actually fact, when I look at my stats now I see that around 95% of my organic serp hits are from Google.co.uk.  If anyone’s thinking about working in the spread betting market than there you go – you HAVE to be ranking in Google.co.uk to get traffic.

    I also made my first CPA on my spread betting site this month after finding that my domain WAS ranking for some popular keywords after all.

    I Negotiated High CPAs at Two Casino/Poker/Sports Betting Programs

    Something that I’m genuinely proud of this month was negotiating CPAs at two programs in gaming that don’t normally provide CPAs.  One of the CPAs I negotiated was actually double on one of my existing sites which means my revenue for that site in particular will double.

    I also had an AM want to offer my up front payment for placements on three of my newer sites which I’ve never been offered before.  Sadly however, I declined since I’m either not working on some of the sites (receive little traffic/seo which would inevitably lead to a one month trial being cancelled) and the other site was picking up a lot of US traffic and the room in question was non-US.

    For the first time ever, I also found it really useful having a “network” of affiliate sites to use as leverage and impress AMs with.  It seems that they are much more likely to work with affiliates on CPA deals that possess a network of sites capable of promoting a range of their gaming products.

    Built Traffic to my Instant Games Site

    My aim this month was to get my online games site up to 3rd for its main keyword.  I failed to do this but I did still built a lot more backlinks and increase my traffic to around 600/month.

    Pathetically, I still haven’t put any affiliates links on to this site yet and I’ve already seen tons of players trying to downloading rooms with error pages.  I’m leaving a lot of money on the table here so I plan on getting these up ASAP!

    New Theme on PokerBankrolls.org

    My new theme on pokerbankrolls.org was implemented earlier this month.  I’m happy with it overall and it was a very good price. There are still one or two customisations and changes that will be made to it though (particularly with regards to CTAs).

    I didn’t get around to adding CTAs to all of my unner pages, although after checking my GetClicky analytics I found that there wasn’t much traffic going to these pages anyway so my time was better spent elsewhere.  I’m actually getting a lot better traffic from Bing and Yahoo compared to Google at the moment which is funny.  I’m still trying to built this up slowly but now I have CPAs at some uk online poker sites so it should make more income next month.

    Increased US Traffic to my iPhone Betting Site

    I mentioned in my February affiliate goals that I wanted to build US traffic to my site and promote one or two US-friendly sportsbooks on my iphone site.  This went ok, US traffic only makes up around 25% of my traffic and I managed to pick up a handful of players at Sportsbook.com.  The deposit rate is a lot lower than UK rooms however.
