GPWA improves access to Seal preferences
We're pleased to announce that we have rolled out some improvements to the GPWA Web site. First, we've integrated setting GPWA Approved Portal Seal preferences directly into the site navigation through a new "Seal Preferences" link under "My Account." Using seal preferences, webmasters of approved portals can select the size of the seal they wish to display and the default language to be used when the seal is displayed. We've also upgraded vBulletin and vbSEO.

Do you believe in diversifying your affiliate revenue to other industries?
We're all involved in earning revenue through affiliate marketing in the online gaming industry. Most of us focus exclusively in that area. Diversification sounds great, but diversification means focusing on more than one area, and often that is hard to do, and yields worse results than a concentrated focus in one area. What's your strategy? Diversification or concentrated focus? View poll
