    are certain affiliates harder to "find"?
    hey guys what up

    I'm still kind of new to the whole merchant thing
    i started on a different area and i had no problem locating good and serious affiliates but im currently working in the gambling area and i find it hard to find serious affiliates on that field.

    at first i upgraded our affiliate program to match all the "Big Sites"
    but still i find it hard to get serious and good affiliates

    any 1 here encountered that problem with gambling or other fields ?

    any solutions ?

    imho your site is too new
    Visitors by Country:
    Turkey 17.6%
    Israel 13.7%
    Austria 6.8%
    India 6.6%
    Colombia 4.5%
    Chile 4%

    Serious affiliates have built relationships over many years.

    Due to all the new laws against gambling online it's going to be hard to find good affiliates willing to promote such sites. I know I wouldn't.

    It's in English and looks like a US .com site to me. Not sure how you can say it's not targeted to US players.

    Who are you targeting? What countries do you expect to get affiliates from?

    the site is not located in the u.s and has no authorization to work with u.s players.
    but it is an international site offcourse, so I'm targeting it to Europe, Asia, Australia and south Africa.

    Is it safe to assume that you're working with an affiliate network that has a strong International affiliate presence then? Perhaps you might want to broaden your program to other international networks or look into switching.
