    Guest Blogging is best for Casino Niche. I can Help in getting HIGH PR links ( PR 8 DA 90 ) for your casino Niche if you believe in making Authority Casino website.

    I know the site you mean, it's a fantastic resource for gamblers, I myself use it from time to time and it's a great example of how a gambling site can obtain natural links

    Could somebody explain me the meaning of a crash and burn site? Do you mean like offer something impossible like in the direction of a scam in order to pull lots of traffic? Sorry for my ignorance here...

    I used to be in the casino niche using PPC ads for traffic.

    The problem I found with SEO were the keywords.. it really seemed there were only a few big keywords and they were so obvious, like 'online casino' or 'casino'

    Even 'best online casino' was very very low search.. so unless you're targeting a ton of long tails then I think you'll find it hard..

    When you guys say spam and repeat - how many keywords are you targeting? The big ones like 'online casino' or lots of longtails?

    Yes you are right, people who gamble, tend to just want to gamble, they are not interested in what you write on your website.

    So you have to give them what they want, and that is gambling. To keep users on my main sites and giving them what they want, I iFrame free play casino games onto relevant pages. For example, if I write an article about roulette, I will iFrame a roulette game at the bottom of it.

    In the casino niche, I recommend you get links from other casino sites only. I have seen some inexperienced competitors lose their rankings because they purchased bulk blog comments (you can tell from their backlink profile)

    Notice the sellers name WINK* Get in the btc/ltc niche it's pretty good and growing. I did this a few times. But instead of turn and burn. I try to put time into things and really make a valuable site. I had two other members help me with that site but they lost steam and it was unorganized but it still worked and I stuck with it and ended up alright but consuming more time then i needed as I found myself playing poker in my game room every day. Decided to sell to kill the addiction lol

    After the recent updates I have struggled to rank casino sites with spam. Most of the services in the marketplace will not rank for anything competitive. I have tried most of them and what works best now is the niche related blog posts. Even the big online casino brands are buying these.

    I think the best approach to start with is: a few radical quality local directory links and about $500 worth of niche related blog posts. This should get you in the top 20 for terms like "online casino Australia". I would stick to CPA in the beginning because median player values are quite low compared to average so if you can take $150 per player you will have some safe cashflow to reinvest and buy more links.

    From there you can start sending contextual homepage links from your private blog network. Then once you start ranking in the top 5 I would reinvest into more niche blog posts and start targeting narrow keywords like "online casino" and "Casino Online". This strategy is expensive but it works. If you have any alternative strategies please let me know.

    The best way to rank in the casino niche is to use long tail keywords. Phrases containing at least 4 words give you more chances of ranking, especially when used as the title and once in the article body. You do not need to stuff the articles

    When I see this a guy like this ranking #1-2 for a few money keywords:

    casino.jpg

    It tells me it's not too hard. ;)

    OP, do your keyword research. No need to compete for the big terms that everybody else is trying to go for.
    Be where the competition is not.

    And as far as your original post is concerned. Yes, build a private blog network. It gives you the most control/power.
    It can be as risky as you want it to.

    If you don't have the funds or can't find the domains, then simply buy some from the BST, there is no shortage of link sellers there:
