Casino Listing Re-direct

9 replies • Last post

I made the mistake of typing in casinolisting.com instead of casinolistings.com. It re-directed me to Club World. CL-Ed, have you thought about having a misspelling of some of the popular casino sites and re-directing them here! lol In the very least it might save someone from losing a lot of money!

What a great idea LuckyMe. It would safe alot of people some grief especially if they are starting out and don't understand bonuses. I know this site saved me a lot of confusion cuz I was getting so perturbed when I asked for payouts and was told ...We subtract the bonus amt and such.

Well, maybe CL-Ed will see this and think about steering some traffic this way. Smile

That is interesting because I don't get instantly redirected. Maybe its because you are American. Instead I just get a page of links to casino sites. There are lots of affiliates that do that sort of thing - put up 100s or even 1000s of crap one page sites and hope to earn money from people who find them and click through to a casino as a referral.

As for registering mis-spellings of other popular sites and redirecting them here, I don't think its a good idea. There have been court cases over that sort of thing where people have registered mis-spelled domains of well known brands or businesses in order to catch typos and ended up in trouble. Its one thing if you are showing people a one page site with links on it that you can afford to lose, but its another when you have a comprehensive site like ours that has taken years to build.

Now it sends to me to a list of casino sites too, but it didn't before. I have misspelled many sites before and couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. I was kind of irritated once I figured out what had happened, because I felt I was being tricked. One such site was my credit card company. I'm so glad I didn't enter any info.

What I meant was to list a name similar to the rip off casino sites so that people could learn the truth about them. I certainly don't want you to tarnish your name. I know you've worked very hard to get this site to where it is now. I know I would be happy if I was going to www.losemoremoneycasino.com and ended up here and learned the truth about a casino that I was about to deposit money in. Maybe I didn't explain it well.

It seems many people come here AFTER they have lost money searching for more info on the rip off casino. I was thinking if they came here first (even if it was a re-direct) then they would be thankful for you saving them money. We have seen many people who come here after losing lots of money.

I know that you know best what works for you CL-Ed.

What I would give to have had something like Goggle.com back in the day. These simple sites would have been a gold mine if you could have sold them when up and comers were launching.

I remember when White House.com was something you would stumble upon when doing a high school art project and see some nekkid people. Thankfully they got out of that and just put up a links page (I looked). I used to think it was hilarious, but as a parent can see where I would be pretty upset if my kid went there while trying to do homework.

My uncle used to cyber squat on names in the late 90's and he made some good money doing it.

I can remember when the only kind of research available was Consumer Reports. I used that before buying appliances. I used some car guide before buying a car. Now it's so much easier to get info.

It is, but you have to be wary. I know of people that pay for positive reviews on sites like Amazon or trip taking websites. It drives me nuts now, because I am not sure if I can trust what I read on a review.

You have a good point Slim. I once relied on Amazon reviews of a product I bought. The product sucked once I got it. I think it one of those leaf blower things. It did not have enough power to do the job. I think I've used it twice. It's sitting in the garage. That was a waste of money!

Ed's right.. I used to have a small crappy 10 pages website, that had a microgaming word in its url. After a year or so I received a complaint from Microgaming requesting to hand over the site to them.

I naturally wasn't keen on doing that, but they also filed a complaint with Godaddy where my site was hosted, so they shut the site down.
