English, Spanish and Russian. We operate even on holidays, and we are always avail- able to help anyone. Our site is focused on online poker and we try to include people who have been playing online poker by themselves, or have been the industry for quite some time. So we assure you that our service, promotions and support is always the best. We are also very open, and we don’t hide anything to earn money or to give players less than 100% correct information. Trans- parency is crucial for us! How do you decide which casinos to pro- mote? For my team and me, it is vital to work only with big and serious companies together. Trust, transparency, and respect are critical, but unfortunately, not everyone has these. It may be hard to believe for some people, but we are not only focused on money. We wouldn’t promote a casino or poker site if we noticed their activities aren’t right. Again, before we decide to work with any casino and promote them, we test the site first as a normal client. We also check the func- tionality of the site’s software, the service, the promotions, and how long it takes to withdraw money. These are the first few steps. If all is fine, we contact someone from the affiliate team to put up a good deal with us through email. But we are also mindful on how fast we receive a response. If it takes, for example, one week to answer an email, it is already a bad sign. For me, it is very important that we always have a contact person who is reachable — in the best case by Skype. How big is your operation? Altogether, we are seven people, but only five are working actively on YourPokerDreamat themoment. Do you gamble online? What about in brick-and-mortar casinos? Never online, but very rarely in a normal live casino while on vacation, for example. How often do you get to see and interact with other people in the industry? Do you still attend con- ferences? I am in touch with a few guys that I’ve known for many years. We keep in touch through Skype and meet maybe one or two times a year because we live in different countries. Usually, I don‘t attend affiliate conferences anymore. I participated in the one that took place in London (last year), but only because I was also on vacation there. SEO is a very complicated and sensitive topic . Everything can be going smoothly for three months, but it may go bad later after a newGoogle update , that’s how it is with SEO and Google rankings . 57 G P W A t i m e s . o r g
