Many websites don’t stand the test of time because they run into financial difficulties. Snazzywin is struggling, but I will do all I can to keep it alive. I’ve made decisions, that in retrospect, weren’t the right decisions for this website. I listened to “experts” who told me to jam more and more into each post, but often, much of what was included in the posts, was a duplication of the official rules. There is a search engine penalty called, “duplicate content” and this can actually hurt a website. When I breakdown the rules for you, the bots that crawl the site daily, see all of that duplicate content as something they’ve already seen on another site (usually the official rules, themselves) and they discount the content as all “duplicate.” When this happens, it hurts the post from ranking in search engines, so internet searchers don’t find the Snazzywin posts (they would need to look on page 2, 3, 4…) and it lowers the overall domain authority of the website. Snazzywin almost never gets a free visitor anymore and we used to be ranked 1st for everything to do with instant win games. I have to pay to be seen in search engines and have just about run out of money for that. I used to pay for Twitter and Facebook ads, too, but have totally run out of money for that.
The truth is, all this website was ever supposed to be, is a list of the instant win game links. I really just wanted a list (for me) to be able to play from and I couldn’t find a good list at that time, 2009, so I started this one. The blog or “comments:details” section was added, just so you could comment when you win or if you have a tip, trick, or code you’d like to share. It was a huge mistake, on my part, to start including all of that additional detail. As is evident, I almost never have time to play the games, myself. While it made the website super easy to get the information, without having to visit the official rules, it was taking way too long to post games (sometimes in excess of 30-45 minutes for a single instant win game.) This was always a recipe for disaster for a small website, like this one.
I also want to share with you that there will be some weekdays when you won’t see updates. I will try to make it uncommon, but I only get to see my husband two days a week. Sometimes, that involves me driving down 3 hours to see him on a weekday and turning around and driving back the next day. Life is all about compromise. I cannot live in the city he works due to breathing issues (it’s very smoggy) and he cannot live here in the sticks for his profession. I can take the city air for no more than one night a week and he often only has one or two nights a week to spend here, so there it is. Remember, we are renovating our fixer upper, so the one or two nights per week he is at home – you can guess he’s working hard on this house. He really wants me to visit the city once per week, and I really want to. Let’s see if I can juggle all of this and keep the website updated.
I will do my best to get the games on here FASTER. The faster I get them on here, the better it is for you and me. If anyone wants to take the initiative to bust out the prize breakdowns or any other details in the comments, go right ahead. Just be aware, your comment will be held in the moderation queue if you include a link. I appreciate how others have offered their time to help with the content portion, but this is still a for-profit and I cannot work you for free. I can only work myself for free, but like I said, if you want to post in the comments, go ahead. I have ZERO problem with you including game details and other pertinent information in the comments, if that’s what you want to do. You’ll probably get a ton of upvotes in Disqus.
Thanks for your understanding and thanks for making Snazzywin a fun part of your day.
Best of luck in the games,
