The Jimquisition: A Tale Of Casinos And SEO Juice

How exactly do less scrupulous blogs get deals with casino websites to lace their articles with unsubtle advertisements?

Who is pulling the strings, what sort of money changes hands, and what exactly are Casinos looking for when they ask for “SEO Juice?”

The Jimquisition went deep to blow this mother.

I guess Brash Games and other outlets that accept deals to write inane articles for the purposes of holding masked links to gambling sites can still take pride over having more relative integrity than Digital Homicide at least. According to darklordjadow1’s last DigiHom recap, their (now-replaced) .ninja site was basically just a wall of ads and a bunch of link buttons purporting to link to their bundle giveaways but really doing nothing more than reloading the page and all of its ads, making the entire site nothing more than a ploy to desperately milk as much ad revenue as possible.

Why do people trust casino slots to not be rigged? Or any slots for that matter.

I remember during Totalbiscuit’s total bitch-slap of the CS:GO Lotto situation last year that he was ranting about how those types of people were reprehensible for not disclosing basic shit and for not attempting to get “real sponsors.” So I think Jim’s outro is really topical and that his future JQ stuff about the necessities of sponsorship and how it could be described as “on-the-level” will be really important to lay out there.

Jim, I’d let you fire streams of blood-flecked semen into my eyes, but (this comes from a place of both love AND pedantry) friends don’t let friends say ‘hence why’ on t’internet.

Mining some dark veins with that “nicking your dad’s credit card” bit, Jim. Too real. On-topic, I’m of a similar mind. I find advertorials and so on a little distasteful, but as long as it’s clearly disclosed as such, I don’t begrudge anyone using such an arrangement if that’s what they need to do to get funded. No-one’s forcing me to read/watch it, and if it funds independent content I do want to read/watch, then I really have no room to complain. My one concern is this: gaming is used to refer to playing video games; it is also used… Read more »

I literally laughed out loud when I saw they put a whole $100 price tag on your or any other’s site’s integrity and credibility.

You’d have to be quite sad and desperate to so completely sell out, for so little.

Hoping for Life Hacks. Was not disappoint.

EDIT: Oh it even says the bonus content is Life Haxz. I suck at reading.

For charities the first that comes to my mind is the Red Cross. I don’t actually know much about them, but saving lives always seems like a noble cause to me. There’s also ones for helping the poor, such as Goodwill and the Salvation Army, but I don’t how they work regarding donations. In my area, there’s a church called St. Vincent de Paul that runs soup kitchens (which I only know about because I had the misfortune of needing their services at one point), but I don’t know how wide an organization they are. There’s hopefully someone running soup… Read more »

I nominate the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for the charity donation, Jim.

So….Barney has at least seen enough of your website to know you don’t do categories. Yet he somehow missed the folder marked “various toss” and the search bar labeled “root through my garbage.” If he has seen those he was probably thinking something like “What a charmingly off the wall fellow.”

Oh great, online gambling and apps. For the modern person, who wants to abdentmindedly waste a buck or two their daily commute and then wonder where all their money went.
I’ll stick to the casino on Forfeit Island in Lufia 2, thank you very much. A shame they stopped putting slots in Pokemon, though.

Jim, Jim, Jim… I am very disappointed. I think a lot of people probably missed it, it was pretty subtle in the video, but how could you. How could you have sunk so low….

As to have not told us that Pogs for Boglins had moved to JuicySlots(dot)com before today!? Were you trying to keep all those sweet sweet boglins to yourself you naughty boy. I for one will be going over to JuicySlots(dot)com right now to play a few of their many, many wonderful games!

All I got out of this episode is that, somewhere online there’s a Mummy-themed casino game where I can line up five Brendan Frasiers. Brb, blowing life savings.

Just a small note. South Africa and South America is not the same place. 🙂

Although at this point I think South America has better internet than us. 😛

1.) Great episode, really interesting.
2.) Charity – RSPCA. I love animals.
3.) Can someone explain to me how having these links in pages helps with search engine optimization? I’m totally out of the loop on these things with no idea how it works, really.

This was actually quite informative, and interesting. You know what else is interesting? Playing the slots in the hopes of winning big! Over at Juicy Slots you can find over 200 different slots to cater to your particular taste. It’s really a shame that such skeevy marketing is a thing in this day and age. All the more reason there should be stricter control over advertisement and disclosure laws. If you’re over 18 years old, you should check out Juicy Slots! Why work when you can win big! I have to wonder though how many took it out of desperation,… Read more »

Uh, I get that Juicy Slots thing was a bit, but there’s actually a google play store app called Juicy Slots, Jim. I hope that doesn’t lead to some misunderstandings.

Whole thing reminds me of 419 scams and scam baiters. Basically when you get a scam email trying to get your money somehow (Think: “Nigerian Prince left you money, give us your bank info so we can send you it”) people will purposely answer and string them along. This would often make them jump through absurd hoops or use internationally known actors/references that any moron should catch immediately for comic effect and waste the scammers time and money in theory making them less efficient at their scamming while producing a few laughs. So…yeah these people come off as horrendous scammers… Read more »
