GPWA awards 125th Seal of Approval.
The Gambling Portal Webmasters Association (gpwa.org), formed in May 2001, is the only professional organization of its kind, has announced a landmark with the award of the 125th "Approved Portal Seal" to one of its member websites.
Steven Corfman, GPWA Fair Gaming Advocate, said during the announcement, ‘The first 125 awardees deserve a big congratulations! It has been wonderful to see the program grow so rapidly since its launch less than 3 months ago. Players are looking for sites they can trust, and honourable webmasters deserve to differentiate themselves from rogue operators. The Seal of Approval program provides the distinction these webmasters deserve, and gives consumers the information and assurance to make critical decisions about who is reputable and who to skip past. We are excited about this important milestone and look forward to continued growth.’
The purpose of the GPWA Approved Portal Seal is to inform players that the designated site is managed independently of the sites it provides information about or promotes; that it respects and upholds copyright standards; that it does not send spam email, use unethical search-engine-optimization techniques, or promote or display pornography; that it provides consumers with information extending beyond banner ads and links; and that it acts professionally and respectfully in its business activities.
Through the GPWA, affiliate program managers, portal webmasters, and their 4,000+ members are able to communicate with each other and share information in over 80 forums, with 25,000 threads and 180,000 posts.
