How to Build a Profitable Poker Website
Some of you may already know me, but I’ll tell my story from the beginning. I guess I started out
as a computer gamer. I had my new computer, a fast internet connection, and
Counter-Strike & Unreal Tournament – I was online during all my spare time and having a blast.

And then, one day, I thought I’d give online poker a try. I had been hearing about online poker, already knew
how to play Texas holdem poker (or so I thought!!!), and being an avid poker fan, Vegas fan, and blackjack fan,
I thought this would be an interesting endeavor.
Well, online poker ate me up pretty quickly, I lost my entire bankroll… but I was hooked. I would never play
Counter-Strike or Unreal Tournament again. My online time would forever involve book of ra kostenlos spielen poker.
Being one not to accept defeat that easily, I studied online poker websites and
read several poker books, switched my game from limit Texas hold’em poker to no limit Texas holdem poker, and re-entered
the arena with greater determination. I had lost $700 during my inital learning period in the first
half of 2003. In 2004, I made over $10,000 in poker.
I know this really isn’t that much, but playing low-stakes poker
on limited hours…well, who couldn’t use an extra $10k?!
I had figured out how to consistently win in online poker – specifically, how to win at the no limit
Texas hold’em ring game. I had tried out different poker games- Sit & Go tournaments, multi-table tournaments, limit ring/cash
games, and found I was most profitable at the no limit Texas holdem ring game variation. I had
worked on my poker strategies and figured this out around August of 2003.
That’s when I decided to put my experience and knowledge
online and develop a poker strategy website to help others learn the game. I partnered with one of my
friends who knew some HTML and search engine strategies, and together we started a poker website. I was
now a poker webmaster.
Even though I was still relatively new to the game of poker (and still am!),
I was consistently profitable, every
month. I put everything I learned, everything I knew, into my poker strategy website.
People started to visit
it. I gave them what little poker advice I had, posted real hold’em hands that I had played,
critiqued other players’ hands,
and tried to deliver real value. More visitors came. We had to take on more help from the webmaster
perspective, we had another
friend join in to support us. Around this time, we started creating poker affiliate relationships
and posting poker affiliate
links throughout our website. I played at certain online poker rooms, honestly liked them, and so mentioned them.
were my favorites, so we posted our affiliate links to those poker rooms, and visitors started
to join! The more poker content we put on the web site, the more poker traffic we received,
and the more visitors
clicked on those poker affiliate links and became poker players at
Eventually, we started venturing out to other poker rooms, playing in some of the newer poker rooms,
writing up our honest opinions of those poker rooms, and then set up those poker room affiliate programs.
Soon, we had a dozen poker room affiliates, each of them collecting poker players through our website (although PartyPoker and
EmpirePoker would continue to be our favorites and the most popular with our visitors).
We also linked to Amazon.com and
and sold our recommended poker books and poker chips.
What started off as a fun exercise learning how to write HTML and a discussion of my winning poker strategies
became a money making website that would rival my own poker profits!!! I still play online poker every month, but
now those revenues are matched by my poker website revenues. Being a poker webmaster is as profitable as being
a good poker player!
I spend all my free time playing poker, writing about poker, and working as a poker webmaster.
And now, well, welcome to my latest creation. Just like how I’ve learned to play profitable online poker and created a website to
teach that, well now I’ve learned how to create a profitable poker website and become a poker webmaster,
and I’ve created this website to help teach this!
So, is it really worth venturing on and putting in all that effort into some sort of affiliate marketing
website? Absolutely. I’ve recently quit my regular 9 to 5 job, and am now working full time as a poker player
and as a poker webmaster. Poker affiliate programs are paying for my mortgage. Isn’t that worth looking into? LOL,
you bet it is!

sense as you progress. I write from true, personal experience so you’ll know what to expect. And as you decide

be a poker webmaster and build a profitable poker website.
You can do the entire thing yourself, with some HTML knowledge (or HTML partner),
legitimate poker knowledge, and solid effort. This poker affiliate guide website will teach you
everything you need to know to do it yourself and be your own poker webmaster.
