    I suggest if anyone is disturbed by the antics of certain casinos (e.g. Jackpot Factory below) trying to game the search engines, they report them via the Google page:

    Report the offenders here:
    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    Here are Google's policies:

    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    Which prohibit 'misleading or irrelevant words'

    If we keep on top of casinos using spam techniques like this, then they should learn their lesson and it should stop.

    Here's some examples of the kind of content that should be reported to google

    You must register/login in order to see the link.


    Promoting the smoking of marijuana [a coffee shop in Amsterdam is a place to purchase and smoke cannabis]:

    Spamming DOES NOT PAY.

    Please report a spammer today. Google WILL remove the sites from their index.

    Unfortunately to some it does. Hence the number of rubbish cloaked websites filling the search engine results. You report one to google/yahoo/msn, another ten appear in their place.

    The Casinos need to lead by example and ensure their affiliates do not engage in this practice. Many reputable programs do police their affiliate network, but others ( Mentioning no names, you know who you are! ) turn a blind eye to this practice and some even directly partcipate in it.

    No wonder the Online Gambling Industry is regarded by many search engine optimisers as a bad neighbourhood.

    Still time to report them to Google...

    I'm amazed they haven't removed the links. If it was my multi-million dollar business, I would get all the web people I had and not let them go home until they were all gone.

    Amazing incompetence.

    It is amazing how many casino operators cannot afford proper online marketers. One would think they have the means as they are successful. But it seems that the moment they start tasting money they loose all their intelligence and become completely blinded by their greed. The majority of casino operators unfortunately have to rely on their employees to make things work for them as the owners of these establishments only have the ability to look at figures and very often have very little if any knowledge of online marketing.

    What I see happened here is perhaps a case of them employing an idiot SEO or outsourcing their SEO to a company that clearly do not know what they are doing. The reason I say this is the fact that the brand names was used by them. I mean risking the actual branded website to be banned is a completely idiotic thing to do for any business that want's to stay in business.

    The irony involved is that if they did structure the online marketing strategies correctly they will probably kick major butt. SEO is powerful yes but only if implemented correctly in conjunction with the other online marketing techniques. They are doing it completely wrong. Someone in their operation is without a doubt taking decisions that will hurt this company in the long run. I think they need to smell the coffee and sent this person on an online marketing course.

    Unfortunately we have to report them to Google and educate Google to automate detection processes within their algorithms and probably get their site banned in the process.
