    Exclamation Targeted traffic to the merchant, and more.
    Hello, guys!
    I am new to the affiliate industry, but I have a couple of websites, which I'm making money with. I'm currently using AdSense, so I havenít felt the interest in using affiliate programs, before now.

    I understand the whole business and how it works (pretty much). But I've got some questions I hope one of you guys could answer .

    1. I have a poker site, but I'm not having any ads on the site, but I'm planning on writing some comments about a couple of poker networks and buying some targeted traffic. Is the poker industry very over saturated, or do you think that doing this could work?

    2. Which are the biggest affiliate networks/which should I choose? If I, for example want to use CJ, do I have to have a website to get accepted? Or can I get accepted with a website that has little or no traffic? The plan in that case is to ship targeted visitors from let's say AdWords directly to the affiliates webpage/landing page.

    3. Is there a good affiliate network that accept that I ship the traffic to the merchants webpage/landing page (like leave your telephone number to get a free ring tone-page).

    So, summed up:
    * Is it possible to make money with a poker site? Should I ship the targeted traffic to my poker site, or should I ship it directly to a poker site (like the bonus page on the poker site)?

    * Which affiliate network should I use. Do I have to have a well visited webpage to get accepted in these? Any suggestions on a network where I don't have to have a site?

    * Is there a good affiliate network that accept that I ship the traffic to the merchants webpage/landing page (like leave your telephone number to get a free ring tone-page).

    Hope you don't find my text too confusing, and that you'll help me.

    Best Regards!

    How can I miss you if you haven't left. You desire to get into the poker game without a stake in the game. Won't work in a casino ... but online you can trick traffic if your an adept spammer and traffic con-man.

    Thank you for your reply!
    Hmm, okey, so I see. Using PPC-visitors and ship them directly to the merchants casino/poker network is regarded as SPAM?

    Is linking the traffic to my poker page (making my own landing page) the only alternative? Or if not, is it the best idea? I have a full content poker page as we peak, but I mean using the casino-review page as a landing page.

    Edit:
    Sorry for my misspelled title and my bad english.

    Develop a complete site to school online Poker players as to winning strategies. The natural SERP traffic will come from that content. Then leverage that content with PPCSE traffic and Adwords clicks. Finf a network who specializes in promoting Gambling sites vai affiliate links. Those running the gambling sites are adept at playing the PPCSE game and spotting junk click traffic.

    It's a violation of the Terms of Service to run Adsense on sites that have anything to do with gambling - even if they're only *about* gambling.

    I'd suggest pulling the Adsense ASAP (like yesterday) and find some alternatives to protect your interests long term. Just develop some worthwhile sites on other topics if you want to run Adsense and stay in the program. If you get kicked out it's permanent.

    Yep, I know. I wasn't making myself clear on that point. I use AdSense on other pages not related to gambling.
    But I'll be planning to launch a landing page on my poker site with different casino reviews/bonus page.

    Is there an affiliate network (not related to gambling) that does accept people with no site, or low traffic sites?
