Do you make significantly less money since it's prohibited in some european countries?

      As far as I know, in France and Spain (and I think there's another one I don't remember) they can only play with french/spanish players. Did that impact your average number of referees/month?

      My number of referees/month was very low already before this started, so I don't know if it got worse or not... For someone who refers more people it's easier to see :)

      Yeah, I understand. What method do you use to advertise us and where? :) We can always give you some tips and see if it improves.

      In general, regulated markets such as France or Italy boost poker locally, as even state-owned operators join the fray etc.pp.

      As you refer to PokerStrategy.com, this should not be a problem - as our French and Italian websites also offer free money / deposit bonuses for the local poker rooms!

      When having mixed geographic traffic, make sure you advertise our root URL, http://www.pokerstrategy.com/#uXXXX.

      Reason: without a language sub-domain, we will detect the customer language automatically & redirect the player to the right language/landing page.

      I put the link on youtube videos. I had a video getting 2k views a day, and in total I was getting like 6k views/day on all my videos, but the accounts got closed because of copyright infringement :( That's why I started getting so few referrals, now I only have some videos (not copyrighted this time).

      Hmm if I don't use the root URL won't TAF count french and italian players?

      Ideally, you should always use the root, i.e. http://www.pokerstrategy.com - as it re-directs players depending on their Geo-IP/Browser Language.

      If a French or Italian get redirected to the respective language versions of PokerStrategy.com, they also have local free money offers available etc.pp.

      By the way: SP/head is higher in France and Italy than the average.
