SEO Strategies for Your Rakeback Website

By: Thom Kearns

You are an experienced online poker player and have established for yourself a fine rake back deal. You may even have signed up with some poker rooms’ affiliates programs in hopes of becoming a rakeback provider yourself. But you are not where you want to be in this endeavor at this point. What you need is for more players to sign up with you. Here are a few ways to make that happen.

There are more ways than one to manage your rakeback business. One way is to drive traffic to your website by smart search engine optimization. What you need to do then is create a website, build links to the site and sign up new players under your affiliate accounts.

When designing your website, pay close attention to how the search engines will rate it. Obvious, you say? Not when you realize that there is a plethora of sites on the net with duplicate content, irrelevant content, or heaven forbid, no content al all. Don’t let your site be one of these.. Your site will have unique content and unique keywords to gain real improvement in your site’s search engine rankings.

Now that that is done, you need to take on the less obvious and more time consuming task of building the links that will point to your website from relevant sites and pages. Here are a few ways to do just that.

1. Directory Submissions - By submitting your website to directories you score one way links from pages with similar links on them. These links are somewhat related to your website and are fairly easy to obtain. Another advantage is that these links are generally free.

2. Social Bookmarking - By bookmarking your website at social bookmarking websites you will quickly gain more one way links to your rakeback site. You may also be able to drive some targeted traffic if you tag the site properly and others are searching those tags. These links are also free.

3. Blog Commenting - By leaving comments on other peoples’ blogs you can actually generate some fairly high quality links. The key is to leave comments relevant to the actual post that you’re commenting on rather than generic spam. This will get your comments posted more frequently and generate more links for your rakeback site.

4. Article Directory Submissions - Write and submit articles to article directories, publishers, mailing lists and blogs to generate a substantial amount of one way links to your site. These are great links as they are coming from an original article that you wrote. It is essential that the page be highly relevant to your topic and the anchor text is precisely of your choosing.

By building links to your rakeback website you should be able to drive targeted traffic to your site and gain valuable ground in the search engine results pages. This obviously leads to more sign ups and more money in your pockets. The only trick now is not to blow all of your extra cash at the craps tables!
