Online gambling mostly uninterrupted

In October, I wrote a couple of entries about how the text link marketplace might change with new US laws restricting online gambling. However I ahve heard from several Americans that many poker sites are still allowing US players as normal:

I dont bet on sports but i play online poker everyday. I still dont get why sites like PartyPoker had to shut down, while PokerStars and Full Tilt are still standing. Not that it matters, because i'm doing very well on the stars right now.

I copied this post from my Giants football message board. Has anyone got more information on these laws or has anyone felt the effects?

Link buying strategy

Recently I started paying $150/month to advertise my web directory on Search Engine Guide. I got good traffic, but sales didn't increase. I felt that taking the $150 a month and spending it on permanent links would be more effective. I ahve my doubts because many other directories advertise there but I'm back to looking for cheap links on webmaster forums, even though most of them don't have the quality I'm looking for.

By the way, I haven't been posting much recently because I've been acquiring links for my sites and for some live action roleplaying games.
