At last, Google has finally accepted casino gambling related sites into their AdSense programs. I’ve been building casino affiliate sites for as long as I can remember and these were the first insight I had into affiliate marketing.
The trouble is with the casino and gambling niche is that visitors to your site normally have two sign up to the casino and place bets to play poker online before you make any money. However, now that Google is allowing AdSense to be displayed on casino and gambling sites it means that you can get paid per click. So what this means is that even though your site may only get a little bit of traffic it means that it’s a few less steps for the visitor to complete before you make money.
I received an e-mail from Google today explaining this, however, it would appear that the AdSense ads are not allowed to display casinos or gambling related products in however I’m sure Google will have demographically targeted the ads. I’m confident that Google would have thought this out and I’m sure that the price per click will be worthwhile.
So does this mean for me?
Well, it means that my dormant casino sites that have not touched in a few years will get a new lease of life and will be making a little bit more money. Even if it is only a few pence a day from AdSense.
AdSense is now growing to be one of my biggest earners in affiliate marketing, eBay Partner network used to be absolutely sensational. Ss far as my earnings were concerned I used to make the most amount of money from eBay, the since the changes to eBay and generally eBay. They are making it a lot harder for affiliate’s to make money.
It is just a quick post to let you know the news and to fill you in. Maybe this will get your mind going and maybe you’ll start making money from Sbobet on your gambling affiliate sites now.
Be pleased to hear from anybody is making money from AdSense on the gambling sites and be keen to find out how much they’re making per click.
Enjoy the rest your weekend.
Glad to read this update! I know a bit about Google Adsense being strict on their rules regarding their ads. I think they don’t even allow websites that has PTC affiliate links to use Adsense ads so those website owners tend to look for other ways to earn from their websites. Goodluck to your new means of earning!
there are lots of ways to make money online without having to use adsense or one single affiliate program :-)

Im honestly surprised google has been so hesitant to tackle the gambling niche so far. It seems to me that along with adult entertainment gambling is one of the most lucrative areas for advertisment on the internet today.
I know I don’t understand why for so long that they didn’t allow it. I wish it was available when I was heavily involved in the gambling niche but hey ho never mind :-)
Sharing other peoples work will not lower your authority, that’s a common misconception. Some blog owners try and not to link to others because they are selfish and do not want to let their readers leave their websites. And blog commenting is a really good way to increase trafic. Just so people can join in with the conversation and stay for longer, that’s the best reason.
As long as your adding value with your content then you will be ok and if adding value means linking out to another site then that is what needs to be done… It will work out fine in the end :-)

I am running a entertainment site. Will Google allow adsense on my site. please need help.
I can’t see it being a problem but the best thing you can do is go directly to google and ask them… that way you know for sure and they can guide you in the right direction….

Hi Danny, thanks for telling this. I myself run a casino related site and this seems like a good news, however, what are the disadvantages of this ad sense to my site? It can’t be all that good, there must be some disadvantage of it.
To be honest I cant give a proper answer as I have not tested this, but from my experience you would make more money from offering affiliate offers. However you would have to weigh up the pro’s and cons and do split testing to see what is going to add more value to your site and of course how its going to effect your bottom line…
A few pros straight off for having adsense on your casino site is the high cpc and so you make money whether the user deposits money or not… ie pay per click. I down side would be that you miss out on those $200 sign up bonus commissions :-)
All I can say is test test test

Another example of hypocrisy from Google I don’t know if the associate about their rules why don’t they imply that on their own company first?
