    I know AskG has god awful content writers but today's blog just takes the absolute biscuit...

    "Did You Know You Can Get Fit by Gambling Online?"

    I am not going to dignify them with linking to the article but my god do they ever use their brains? In a time of super-mad compliance they spew this shite to their readers... Unbelievable!

    Obviously everyone should be getting fit by playing online slots. This might even take off at land casinos soon, Vegas could become the world's best city to lose a few pounds.

    Anyway's, after reading this highly informative article i was totally convinced that i could get fit by playing online slots at any of the UKGC approved (fitness centers) casinos on the sidebar of that article page.

    I also clicked the link "online casinos" within the article and that link goes to a page with many UKGC casinos listed like BET365, Casumo etc where i could obviously get fit too. Who needs a gym membership anymore :rolleyes: xxx.askgamblers.com/gambling-news/blog/exercise-while-gambling/ getting fit at online casinos.jpg getting fit at online casinos 2.jpg

    We're all being forced to jump hoops etc., while AskG tossers out this rubbish. @Casino-Matt - Nice catch, m8!

    I feel fitter, more toned and have more energy just from reading the article. I'm scared to play online as I feel I may get too fit and don't know what to do. World record, Olympics, marathons......the list is endless

    I wish they wouldn't have let out that secret to the masses. Now everybody will be doing it.

    Hilarious "There’s nothing you can’t do while the reels keep spinning without your having to constantly press ‘Play’. Time to stand up again, move the chair away from the desk and bend your knees as if going back to the sitting position" What genius came up with this?

    Probably some genius from Kenya, i hope this article writer they are using is at least 18 years old, They would have the proof of this i am sure :D

    Looks like many programs such as BET365 need to do a full audit on some of their APPROVED partners.......

    I had a look around just to see what new casinos come out lately and who had UKGC seal. And must say I am absolutely shocked!

    I have not linked them just search for them in google and have a look.

    Buddyslots

    Jupiterslots

    Looks like they are run in a basement in Malta by 1 person. Jupiterslots contact email is Phil (1 person??)

    Have max withdrawal of £50 on bonuses with no deposits. If you make deposits all winnings are restricted to £250 this is absolute ridiculous and rogue behaviour.

    Also having worst terms conditions I remember seeing. Not following advertising guidelines set by UKGC!!

    Mrjackvegas

    Lordslot

    Again not following correct advertising guidelines. (I don’t even want to think about terms and conditions towards players have not checked these yet)

    I am starting to think that it is basically UKGC putting all these restrictions on affiliates so they have free hands to make ton of money approving all these casinos by them giving up front payments to UKGC themselves.

    Can someone tell me how UKGC can put on these very harsh restrictions and not even follow themselves allowing all these “basement” 1 person run casinos to be safe for new uk players??

    I better stop here as I am so furious right now after discovering just these newly casinos but will be loads more like this out there. What is your view on all this also hope to hear from Nicola (will try give her a pm if does not come across my post). (ps im posting this at casinomeister as well!)

    In my opinion lawmakers and those who enfore the law are from some other planet. It's about money and creating jobs and influence for themselves. Hence, they give licenses to every idiot that pays for it and they invent new rules all the time, to keep themselves at work and in the picture.

    I also do think that for many programs this is ok. A lot of owners for sure would like to get rid of many affiliates.

    Ok, lets blame "some genius from Kenya" for this stupid article instead of the real author who goes by the name "Milka Mitrovic". She sounds pretty Eastern European to me. :rolleyes:

    The first 2 are from Jumpman Gaming, the second 2 are from Progress Play. Both are low quality cheap as chips white label providers churning out hundreds of generic piles of crap. You can add a few more white label providers into the mix like Cassava and Nektan.

    Any white label providers are running 50+ casinos (some 100+ and even 300+). What does anyone expect to get from these? Why do affiliates promote this dross? No player is going to stick around at these clip joints and soon enough players know what to avoid.

    And I totally agree RE the UKGC. Why with so many complaints do they keep giving these companies licenses? Do they not recognise rogues when they see them? How can they justify one master license covering hundreds of casinos?

    Please correct me to understand WHY they are creating posts like this from a strategical point of view. This is not the first time AG is publishing posts like this.

    In fact one of my previous (Russian) managers wanted us to copy the same content strategy for an affiliate site.
    Topics like;
    Where to park your car before you start playing online slots
    What to eat when playing online casinos
    I have a 700 row long Excel with scraped blog entries like this which was supposed to be translated.

    Who is in charge of the SEO content strategy at Askgamblers?
    Is it the operational team in Serbia or the team from Malta? If it is the Serbian team I draw an imaginary string of connection that this might be an approach of working towards Yandex search engine.

    My Russian managers said "Blyat Casinoer Danmark, this is the cyka blyat bomb content strategy! We will drink fine blyat vodka to celebrate!" but never elaborated why it was such a euro trance hit (but he drank the vodka and showed up hangover the next afternoon...). My own interpretation would be that if you cover all topics ever asked a search engine the crawler would award you with a "content authority mark", but also violating Mr.G's recommendations of publishing high quality posts. So therefor it might be a Yandex SEO strategy.

    They probably think pumping the site full of garbage text will improve the rankings. But when actual people start seeing this crap, their bounce rate will increase, which will negate the content spam campaign.

    It seems to be a strategy to rank for as many different keywords as possible to increase traffic and authority. This
    is a simple minded approach to building traffic.. because even if it does work.. as Engineer has pointed out,
    your bounce rate will increase and most of that traffic won't find any interest in what you are offering.

    Find a way to develop new content or further enhance existing content in order to gain authority with the search engines.
    A constant flow of new content is a sign of authority if that content is seen by visitors and the bounce rates are average,
    meaning that the content is actually an integral part of the web site, and your visitors are interesting in seeing the content.
