We lost Gary Beal this year aka garythescubaguy. I – like so many others – was shocked to hear of his passing, it seemed like I had just spoken to the guy. He was a fixture at most of the affiliate conferences in the days of yore giving advice on SEO and website security. He was also posting regularly in our Webmaster section of the forum on SEO tips and how to make your site secure. He left the industry for a couple of years, but I saw him again at the SiGMA in November 2017, and he was excited about getting involved with the industry, and with Casinomeister once again. We were planning to revamp the Affiliate Webmaster section with up-to-date tips and tricks every webmaster needs to know. He was a prolific and knowledgeable writer and had a lot to say.
And now he’s gone.
Our condolences to his family and loved ones. Gary was a pretty fascinating guy. He is sorely missed.
