Sponsored Posts—the green adverts you see to the right—engage our readers through relevant and up-to-date information provided by our sponsors. Highlight your product or service with fresh content and associate your brands with the most trusted name in poker media.
It is perfect for company blogs, press releases, software news and a variety of other promotional announcements. Instead of the same boring rotating banners ads that users are trained to ignore, our Sponsored Posts are engaging, constantly updated and useful to our readers looking for new information.
If you have a blog, we can pull your Posts in automatically through your RSS feed so your Post will always be fresh. If you don’t, don’t worry—just email us whenever you want to update your message. You can even host press releases on pokerfuse.com if you prefer.

How often can I update my Post?
With the UNLIMITED option you can update it as often as you like!
How does the Full Page Press Release work?
You provide us with the press release (including up to 3 external links to your web page) and we post it on our site. The headline of your Sponsored Post will link directly to the press release while your company name and logo still link back to your site.
Have a blog and want to automate the process?
Great! You can link your blog via an RSS feed to your Sponsored Post and update your Sponsored Post at your convenience.
Need to promo your product but dread the writing process?
Let pokerfuse take care of that for you (additional fee).
Do my posts have to be on my site? Can’t I just send you the info to list?
Sure! Just send us the headline, text. links and logo along with when you would like it to be posted and we will do the rest.
When will my latest post be published on pokerfuse?
We can schedule your Post to be published anytime you wish. If you are using our RSS system to update your Posts, our system monitors your feed and imports new Posts every ten minutes.
How much of my post will appear on pokerfuse?
The full article headline (maximum 80 characters) and approximately the first 200 characters of the plain-text body.
How many links will go to my site?
There are three links for each post. In the event you choose to have a press release hosted on pokerfuse.com, your company name will still link to your site’s home page but the headline and the logo links will be directed to the press release where you can have 3 additional links pointing to your site.
