What is iGaming SEO
iGaming SEO is the process of improving the visibility of your gambling or casino website's organic search listings, to generate more visitors, convert them to customers and ultimately increase revenue.
Due to the nature of the industry, some of the common iGaming SEO challenges include:
- Optimising website speed
- Prioritising a mobile-first approach
- Relevant and SEO-friendly content strategy
- Google penalty removal and recovery
- Identifying and removing spammy backlinks
How do we help iGaming brands?
Regardless of whether you are new or experienced within the iGaming industry, our technical SEO team at SALT.agency will ensure a bespoke strategy backed up by technical implementation by our team of specialists.
Our team of experts has years of experience within the iGaming sector and will develop and integrate a technical strategy that will best suit the needs of our clients.
Why should I invest in iGaming SEO?
The iGaming industry is highly competitive, with many brands opting to pay their way into appearing at the top of search results for high intent keywords.
Investing in an iGaming SEO strategy can help with a long-term digital strategy in generating free, organic traffic for a sustained period.
For any of our iGaming clients, a technical audit is the first point of call; members of our technical SEO team investigate the existing website's performance, site structure, and architecture. This allows us to identify and share website issues such as site speed, mobile usability and current backlink profile that may be impacting your current SEO performance.
Once identified, we prioritise the existing issues and make sure we incorporate suitable technical solutions into our bespoke roadmap.
As part of any iGaming SEO strategy, we perform a full audit of competitor websites - direct and indirect - to identify weaknesses and opportunities for our clients.
A typical competitor technical audit includes - but not limited to - identifying main keywords, backlink profiles, on-site content, and reviewing external marketing activities impacting competitor websites.
There are many reasons why we see iGaming clients looking to implement a website migration; whether that's to build a faster website, update to a newer CMS, fix website architecture or move to a new domain name for branding or acquisition purposes.
At SALT.agency, our team has performed numerous successful website migration types. Be it to change URL structure, most server or hosting provider or change website platform completely; we can get it done.
Producing and publishing content for iGaming websites can cause many issues when it comes to making sure it is both SEO and end-user friendly.
Ensuring that content is up to date for time-sensitive events or making sure there is enough supporting content for graphics-heavy product pages are common issues for iGaming websites.
Our SEO content team will work to develop a unique content strategy to ensure that both on-site and off-site content fully supports the long-term technical SEO strategy.
Historically, many iGaming brands have been guilty of using a spammy SEO strategy, - whether they are aware of this or not.
At one time, purchasing backlinks, keyword stuffing or similar forms of SEO spam would be a quick and cheap strategy that would see an improved organic performance. Yet recent or significant drops in organic traffic may be attributed to previous malpractice.
As part of a technical audit, our technical team will investigate and resolve Google penalties and thoroughly review the backlink profile to prevent future issues.
As iGaming brands grow, we often see clients expand into international markets targeting different GEOs or languages, who wish to maintain their SEO performance in additional markets.
Our highly technical team of multilingual SEO consultants are vastly experienced in international SEO, having worked with a range of clients from around the world.

We’re entering into our 3rd year of partnership with SALT during which time they have provided us with invaluable support which commonly extends far beyond their obligations.
This is a team so driven by their passion for SEO that they do not hesitate to go the extra mile time and time again. As we enter a new phase in the development of our website we only see more involvement for SALT in helping us achieve our goals.
Working with Reza and the SALT team was a game changer for us. From a business perspective, our website inbounds more than doubled over a period of 6 months with relevant, highly targeted traffic. Reza and the team took the time to understand our very niche, technical space to give us specific direction on web content, and the results speak for themselves. I’d recommend SALT to anyone looking for a real partner when it comes to SEO engagement – not to mention that the team is genuinely a pleasure to work with. I look forward to a continued partnership with Reza and the SALT team as long as I have SEO needs (which I’d imagine will be for a very long time).
SALT’s dedication to our projects and their technical know-how were superb.
They really went the extra mile and took the time to understand our business, never applying one-size-fits-all solutions. They have added concrete and measurable value to our business.
They are professional, confident, insightful, and keeps up-to-date with Google algorithm changes. Most importantly, they are a pleasure to work with! Looking forward to collaborating with them again in the future.
