Web Ranking and Bookie Trust
At BML we have given them a safety rating of Likely Safe which means your balance are probably safe. We base this rating on our personal assessment, and you can read more about safety ratings here.
We also take into account externally verifiable ranking factors. We can grab a reasonable amount of information about this sportsbook from publicly available information on the internet.
The load time for this site is 179.85 seconds, which is a quite high load time and could be cause for concern. That’s read over a high speed internet connection – your load time will likely be higher.
Now we should look at when the domain name expires. Obviously, when you’re putting your trust in a bookie, a domain that’s set to expire quite soon isn’t a great sign. In the case of Betfred it expires on 20th Feb 2018, which is in 110 days time. That seems quite short – it will expire in under a year.
So what’s the Alexa rank? Well, it’s produced by Alexa (parent company: Amazon) and gives you an idea of a website’s global popularity. The lower the rank, the more traffic the site gets. So how does Betfred do? Its Alexa rank is 29,460 which is quite low – Betfred is a popular site and that’s a good sign.
In judging a bookie’s trustworthiness, we also like to look at a domain’s authority. There are various services that provide insight into the authority of a domain, and we combine a variety of them to produce a custom score, out of 100. Betfred scores 63 which is is an extremely high authority score indeed – this has to be one of the most linked-to bookies on this site.
Having looked at all these stats and put them into a custom algorithm – along with others not mentioned here – we can give Betfred an overall web trust rank of 63.92/100. It sounds like an average rating – but that’s very high for a web rank and means this is one of the most trusted domains on BML.
Betfred has received a player experience rating of Average. This indicates that Betfred provides players with a decent and stable experience, without shining or delivering anything particularly distinctive.
The Bottom Line
We’ve gathered loads of stats on Betfred and we put those together to create an overall rating. We call this the BML Rank and it produces a very accurate guideline to the quality of a boomaker. It takes into account everything from their web authority, to the number of products they have, to their player experience rating. Betfred’s BML Rank is 75.60 which is an excellent rating. This is a top bookmaker.
