Reviewing the Subway Surfers Online Game

The Subway Surfers online game is a third person runner game and is similar to Temple Run and various other games like it. However, it is still a unique game in itself and is definitely not your average Temple run copycat. Although similar to Temple Run, it has its own features and unique story with fantastic gameplay, brilliant cartoon graphics, reward and progression system which keeps you going, various characters and its highly addictive. In fact, it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see other games like this down the road being referred to as ‘Subway Surfers clones’.

Positioning a keyword on the first page in a week

Positioning a keyword on the first page in a week

It’s been a couple of months participated in the SEO contest conducted by foro20.com using the keyword seoveinte. 10 days before I knew the existence of this contest, and I decided to test what would happen if involved, knowing full well that it was impossible to position the web between the first, there was no possible days to overtake websites with good seo specialists behind.

The end result came on a day that Foro20 organized in Alicante, on July 11, 2014, and the result I got was very satisfying and surprising at the same time. In Spain and in Mexico I was in 7th position, in just a week I had reached the first page of Google with a keyword with high competition (short-term, of course) So how did I do? I’ll explain what I did and what worked for me:

Optimize the post

Before taking the post, I made a sketch of how I wanted the post and how could optimize it to the max, in order to create the perfect SEO post . Using H1, H2 and H3 tags, keyword density, images and videos, bold, internal and external links etc. I could make a good post respecting all the standards, although it is true that in recent days I desvarie a little desperate, I admit. In the coming days I will explain how to create a perfect post for your blog.

Maximum interaction in social networks

As you can see, the article has more than 900 interactions, and in just a week. If you do a comparison with my other articles you will see that is not normal. Not that the article was so good and that people share or retweeteara, what did it mostly is doing some SPAM, focusing on Google+, earning more than 500 +1. The technique we use is the “classic”, upload funny or quite possibly they share images, and add in publishing my post.

This way I got a lot +1, comments, etc. people who shared This is not right, and never have more used, but it is important to get the top positions quickly push (but not only get interactions in social networks) to other social networks I used a website that gave me love and retweeteaba content that indicabas automatically, something I have not used more.

Positioning a keyword on the first page in a week

Links to my post

I got several connections to the PA (I do not talk about PageRank, as I said in my previous post: PageRank ) and DA quite high, so I got some good backlinks with keyword Seoveinte . I think he’s been the foundation of success (to position my website on the first page), get good backlinks to the keyword that interested. I think today, having good contacts in the online marketing makes your SEO strategy is a success or a failure.

Important also internal links, creating a special widget and a direct link from the home page and create a new category, the target word Google seoveinte knew I liked and it was important for my web 😉

Updating the post

This Wednesday, two days before the contest ends on SEO, updated the date of the post to tell Google which was a new post and try and appear in the top positions. Honestly I think this was unsuccessful, however, I tried.

Conclusion

It is clear that not only are these 4 points that made me reach the first page, there are other known factors that affect SEO, but they helped a lot to find a spot in the top 10. Also, I think I missed a bit of time and especially a good 301 redirect that gave a big boost to the web. While it is true that my domain is young and has a very high DA, which, I do not think that a redirect would finish in the Top 3, but you will never know. Anyway, I was very surprised to position the keyword on the first page in a few days. And I learned from those who were in the top three, which I think is the purpose of these competitions, learn from others and especially from your mistakes.

From here take the opportunity to give my congratulations to Luis Villanueva who was the big winner.

Responsive design or mobile app?

Responsive design or mobile app

The use of smartphones is becoming more widespread among users. It is estimated that in Spain alone there are 26 million active devices. To this must be added the emergence of tablets, devices that are slowly moving to laptops and desktops.

This means that it is increasing the number of people accessing the Internet through their mobile devices.

Strategy for the mobile environment

The data network access via mobile devices means that companies are facing a major issue. Looking for full adaptation to the mobile environment by users, what options are to adapt to such an enterprise web environment?

Of course we have to get users to navigate and interact with the web in comfort and with all the options you would on a PC version. And for this there are two main options which choose: responsive design or mobile app.

Responsive design or mobile app

Applications for devices

One of the main advantages of device applications is that they can adapt perfectly to phones and tablets, offering just what version we want the user to enjoy from your mobile device. This “functionality as” the biggest of its advantages. Besides charging the app is faster than in the case of responsive sites as well they explain in the blog Yeeply specializing in application development platform for mobile devices.

The disadvantage of creating a specialized app for our company is the download you need the app itself, which can slow some users, and the updates that you have to be prepared for it to adapt to different operating systems. The cost of this option is greater than that in which we see now. Technology and software are upgraded day by day. Now data processing, batch processing, industrial process system are well developed and controlled by software. camo is a  great name in this field who provide number of industrial solution software.

Design responsive

This is the easiest option, but is also the most limited. A responsive web design that gets through the HTML layout, display the same content adapted to the screen size or platform that the user is using.
As we say is the easiest option and therefore the most economical, but instead of content optimization is not perfect and performance slows. The problem with this solution is that the content is not custom-built for mobile
