Are there any bingo webmasters here? And when I say "bingo webmasters," I mean webmasters who run bingo portals to the exclusion of other types of gambling sites. Plenty of people operate bingo sites in addition to their poker and casino sites, but I'm curious if anyone here specializes specifically in the bingo niche.
I've read that the bingo niche isn't as profitable as the other two niches, but I wonder if that hasn't changed after the hub-bub with the shutdown of the poker rooms. Not that I think the poker players from Full Tilt and PokerStars fled to the relative safety of the various bingo sites online. I'm just wondering if the poker affiliate market got so tight suddenly that bingo became more attractive in comparison?
So speak up, bingo webmasters.
i have only just seen this thread im not sure how it passed me by.
I have been 95% in bingo marketing for around 2.5 years now, i decided to move away from poker and move into another niche. 2.5 years ago the bingo market was wide open even for a noob affiliate trying to make his way. i quickly realized i could obtain first page serp positions for a fraction of the cost to relative poker terms. My site quickly gained authority and momentum within google, i ended up selling my site for mid £xx'xxx about 15 months ago. I thought it would be easy to bounce back quickly then google started changing and panda updates coming out and not having an authority site anymore, it become much harder. I have finally got a site back to where i was before the sale.
Randy i think bingo is very profitable, i have personally found it more profitbale than poker and casino. I havnt had sites as big in poker or casino so its hard for me to compare. I dont think the poker players have come over from full tilt to play bingo.
The UK bingo market is becoming a very tough market now, as more and more sites appearing all the time. The player values are lower in bingo but i think the conversions are better so it makes up for it.
Thanks for that post, suffolkpoker. That's interesting stuff. I had some small-ish bingo type portals back in the day, but I never took it too seriously. I might look into the market a little more closely now.
