If you are looking to get a smartphone, there are only two real choices with regards to what software that Image result for app store vs play storephone will use. There is Apple with iOS and the App Store and Google with Android and the Play Store. Both have their pros and cons and, in general, a lot of choosing between the two comes down to preference. Saying this, it cannot be ignored that Apple does things better than Google and Google does things better than Apple. To some extent, the Google Play Store is better than Apple’s App Store, even though the App Store has been around for longer than the Play Store. Here are 5 reasons why.

 

 

You Can Find Apps Easier

A problem with Apple’s App Store is that when it comes to searching for an app, apps will only appear in search results based on the keywords the developer added to be searched against for their app.

Compare this to Google, where they are contextual and utilize all of the content of the app (e.g. title, description, category and more), and it is light and day. You are far more likely to find the app you are looking for in the Google Play Store than the App Store.

 

 

Android Apps Are Cheaper

Due to the fact that the competition is more fierce on Android, this has pushed the prices of apps down. This means, like for like, apps are generally cheaper on Android than they are on the App Store.

 

 

Apps Are Provided With More Information

Before downloading an app from the App Store, the only information you get about the app is with a description and a few screenshots. Inside the Google Play Store, they have exactly the same, but a more indepth description of the app. As well as this, there is the option to show a video of the app, providing even more information, before purchase, as to what the app would be like to use.

 

 

Google Play Apps Work With More Devices

When you download an app from the App Store, it depends greatly what device you have. There are some apps made just for iPhone, with others designed just for iPad.

Google’s Play Store has all of the apps available, no matter what device is wanting to download it. This means Android users have the whole Play Store to download apps from, unlike what is the case for iPad users.

 

 

More Developer Friendly

It is a notorious fact that Apple is extremely difficult when it comes to accepting apps into their App Store. They have strict rules that developers must abide to for the app to show on the App Store. On the other hand, Google has made sure their ‘rules’ to getting an app in their Play Store is more lenient. This provides the incentive to developers to fund more time into developing apps for the Play Store, if they know they won’t get rejected.

Of course, a major key component to the success of the blog is the content itself, so that traffic arrives to Image result for blog postthe website. Another area that is often overlooked is the area around a blog post. Yes, web users come to a website to read the content on it. However, if you utilize the space and area around the content, you can capitalize from the traffic by getting them to do something extra on top of reading the content. With this, here are 5 tips you can do to utilize the area around blog posts.

 

 

#1 Email Subscription

If you have content hitting a specific target audience and topic on your website, then it is worth setting up an email subscription to market to your web users. This is typically best to add after the content. That way, if the web user is pleased after reading the content, they have the option to continue receiving your content by email.

 

 

#2 Social Media Sharing Buttons Floating

It is a great idea to promote social media sharing on your blog posts, since this will enable your blog posts to gain more traffic for free, with the potential to go viral.

A way you can do this is by implementing social media share buttons to the left hand side of your content. This tends to be a space not used for anything. By having them float, the web user will always have the option to share your post socially.

 

 

#3 Advertising

Although this won’t directly benefit your website, in terms of keeping web users on it, it will generate revenue for your website. The best locations for adverts propagate around the blog post, since this is where the web user’s attention is. Adverts above/below the content, as well as in-between paragraphs inside the content – these all work well in generating a high CTR.

 

 

#4 Related Posts

If you are not keen on email marketing or advertising at the end of blog posts, then you can put related posts in the space instead. It is common for web users to click off a website after getting what they want: information from content. By sticking related posts at the end of blog posts will entice web users to continue reading about the same topic, increasing the time they are on the website and the number of pages they visited. In general, the longer web users are on a website, the better.

 

 

#5 Floating Search

The problem with sidebars is that once the web user scrolls down the content, the widgets scroll with the page and disappear. This is why it is a good idea to have a floating widget, such as a search bar. This is exactly what I did with poemanalysis.com. From doing this, it enables web users to search for any article on the website without leaving the current page.

The big worldwide web is an amazing opportunity for businesses to capitalize on. At the very minimum, Image result for businessevery business should have a website to point their web users to information about the business, or to even land a sale or conversion on the website. The problem comes with the website lacking elements which should be there, especially for websites for businesses. With this, here are ten elements every business website should have to make it successful.

  1. Business address – There will be a lot of web users accessing your business website just to understand where you are in the physical world. For this reason, make it clear what your address is. This is typically done at the footer of a website.
  2. About page  – It is always interesting to know about the history of a business and how they have got to where they are today. This is what the about page should include.
  3. Phone number – If you have a phone number for you business, you should keep this close to where you place the business address. Think of this area (typically the footer) as the electronic business card of your business.
  4. Store opening/closing times – Web users need to know when you are opening for work and closing too, otherwise it is difficult for them to plan to visit your store in person, or understand when you are open to talk on the phone.
  5. Social media links – Social media is a must for businesses and it is a good idea to promote your social media platforms on the website to attract a following for your business.
  6. Map location – Although the address should already be on the website, having a map location of where the business is might help web users that have a poor sense of direction and is pleasing to visually see where the business is located on a map.
  7. Image of the store – It is always a good idea to stick an image of the front of the business on the website, to illustrate to web users what the business looks like in person. This can help entice web users to visiting it in person.
  8. Contact page/email address – The website should enable web users to contact the business by email or a contact form. Many of the queries web users have do not always require visiting the store or calling a phone.
  9. Description of product or services – If the business sells a product or service, then this should be made clear in a section of the website.
  10. Reviews/customer testimonials – Depending on the reviews you have, you can have a section dedicated to customer testimonials. This works to give web users confidence in converting for you.

With a few websites that generate their revenue from advertising, I have opted to use Ezoic since they Image result for ad revenue indexhave turned out to get the best results out of my websites. What is interesting, recently, is that Ezoic sent an email explaining how the summer rates, and advertiser budgets, can affect how much publishers make from advertising units on their websites. It is an interesting topic, considering that many people think that if their website starts making less money, it is their fault – wrong! Sometimes, it is out of control, and what I am about to tell you is an example of just this.

 

Straight away, it is a good idea to keep up to date with Ezoic’s Ad Revenue Index. This is an index which states how ad revenue is against time, with 100 representing the highest ever day of ad revenue in history. If you have a look at the trend recently, you will see that it is constantly increasing.

 

What is interesting to know is that there are mainly too factors which influence the Ad Revenue Index value:

  • Lack of spending budget – It is common for ad campaigns to not spend all of their budget in the first quarter. When this happens, they pump more money into the campaign towards the end of the quarter to compensate.
  • Start of a month or quarter – Ad campaigns are generally budgeted for every month or every quarter. At the start of each month or quarter, it is common for the ad revenue index value to decrease, and pick up again towards the next start of the month/quarter.

This year is a little special, in the sense that it is the start of the month and quarter on June 1st. As well as this, it is on a bank holiday weekend. Since ad campaigns are still manually controlled, this might mean a drop in the ad revenue index that is slightly bigger than the norm.

For this reason, we can expect to see a drop that is somewhere a little over 15%, since this was the size of the drop from last year.

 

Unfortunately, there is not much we can do to stop this: for bloggers, it is out of our control. There will be a drop in your CPM which will impact how much you make per 1,000 visitors.

There is a work around to compensate for this drop – publish unique high quality content! I know it sounds obvious. But, by compensating with more traffic, the drop in the ad revenue index will not be as noticeable. This is generally why it is a good idea to focus on publishing content around such times where there are drops, such as the start of each month and quarter.

Getting traffic from your blog posts can be a tough task at times. You might have created the most Image result for image blog postdesirable content. However, depending on how you structured your content, as well as many many other factors, will affect how much traffic you receive.

An area that is often overlooked in blogging is with including images in blog posts – bloggers concentrate too much on perfecting content rather than adding images to their content. To make clear how important images are to blog posts, here are some reasons to include them in your content.

 

 

Image Search Engine Traffic

From including an image in your content, you automatically open your content to the wonderful world of image search engines. This is the same as normal search engines, but for images. You might not think you will gain much traffic from this. However, talking from experience, some of my most successful posts have received the majority of their traffic from image search, rather than content search.

 

 

Encourages Social Media Shares

Social media is a great platform to gain traffic to your blog posts. You can share content effectively on most social media websites and it will get a certain level of engagement. Adding an image and it will, no doubt, increase quite a bit. This is because the introduction of an image into a blog post allows social media websites to show the image in the social post, making the social post immediately more appealing to look at and share.

 

 

Aids Readability of Articles

It is often said that an image can portray a thousand words. A 2,000 word article can look quite boring to web users, regardless of what the content is about. Through adding an image into the content, you can help to break the content up, as well as contribute to the content with a contextual image. This makes using an image a win-win situation.

 

 

Reduces Bounce Rate

The bounce rate of a blog post will naturally reduce with the introduction of images into the content. This is because images are more digestible, with regards to information, than text. There is seemingly less work for the web user to do, giving them less reason to bounce off the website and exit the page.

This is particularly effective for images above the fold of a website, where the image comes first before the blog post or just after the introductory paragraph.

 

 

Ultimately, there are very little reasons to not use images in blog post as opposed to using them. For this reason, I hope you take away with you the insight of just how much of a catalyst including images in blog posts can be to generating your blog posts more traffic.

Whether you like it or not, the automotive industry is heading for electric self-driving, or ‘autonomous’ Image result for autonomous carscars. The popularity of manufactures like Tesla proves this enough, where all of their cars are electric and have the capability to self-drive on certain roads (such as highways/motorways). However, is self-driving cars really a good idea? There are definitely many benefits to autonomous vehicles. But, there are equally problems associated with the new technology too. To discuss this, here are some of the main pros and cons to self-driving cars.

 

 

Pros to Self Driving Cars

  • Safer Roads – The vast majority of crashes that happen on roads are because of the result of human error. Introducing self-driving cars will naturally make the roads much safer, taking human error out of the equation.
  • Insurance decreases – Car insurance generally increases year upon year due to crashes and other factors. If the number of crashes reduces, then the cost of insurance will naturally reduce too, helping motorists to save money.
  • Lives saved – The most fatal accidents that occur with vehicles consist of going into the back of cars, along with head-on collisions. Autonomous, and even ‘half’ autonomous cars prevent such accidents from occurring very effectively. This should reduce the number of fatalities.
  • Reduced fuel consumption – Self-driving cars can have the capacity to ‘platoon’. This is when cars follow very closely to each other, with information being fed in a network between the cars (so they can break and accelerate simultaneously). Due to slip stream, this can reduce fuel consumption significantly.

 

 

Cons to Self Driving Cars

  • Cost – Self-driving technology does not come cheap, and Tesla proves this exactly with the price of their cars.
  • Accidents still occur – Although self-driving cars reduce crashes, they do not eradicate them completely. There is still areas for improvement.
  • Who’s at fault? At the moment, self-driving cars have deemed it the driver’s fault for accidents involving cars self-driving. However, is this always going to be the case?
  • Hackable – Self-driving cars will, no doubt, need to have internet access whilst driving. When this happens, there is a chance of hackers being able to hack the system and potentially control the car, which has happened already to some cars connected to the internet.
  • Weather impacting safety – On a dry sunny day, self-driving cars might be perfectly fine. However, when cameras are cold and frosted over, or there is fog, and severe weather conditions, how will the cars work then? Are they just as safe? If not, how do manufactures aim to make them just as safe, regardless of the weather?

 

Ultimately, there appears to be just as many questions thrown up as answered with autonomous cars. Fortunately, we are still quite some years away from the first fully autonomous vehicle. In the meantime, car companies will continually push technology to reach the end goal of having a car driving you from A to B automatically.

It is not uncommon to hear of games becoming very popular. We have had many of the Call of Duty gamesImage result for fortnite become very popular, as well as Fifa being an instant hit for many people. However, for the past months, all of the attention has been on a new sort of game: Fortnite Battle Royale. With over 40 million active players and billions of views generated from the game play on YouTube, Fortnite has become a sensational hit globally. What is Fortnite and why is it so popular?

 

 

What is Fortnite?

Originally, Fortnite was a game for online players to defend themselves against zombie waves, similar to the Zombies mode with Call of Duty games. However, after a change of direction by the creators, Epic Games, Fortnite looked to capitalize on the Battle Royale game mode.

Battle Royale works as a mode of game where players are shipped into a map, with the aim to be the last man standing. Players can roam the map to find guns, health ups and more. Within a certain time frame, the map is shrunk, and then shrunk again and again, forcing players to confront each other until there is only one player left – the winner.

Fortnite is slightly different in that it has a cartoon-style, whilst you can destroy the map with your axe. From this, you can gain resources you can use to build into stairs and walls.

 

 

Why is Fortnite so popular?

Fortnite is the game of 2018 it seems. With huge success on PC, PS4 and Xbox, Epic Games have even made a Fortnite version for the Nintendo Switch. There are now rumors of Fortnite coming to iOS and Android.

  • It’s Free – Any game that is free is going to become a hit, regardless of how good or bad it is. The fact Fortnite is a really good game really gives those that own a PC, PS4, Xbox or Switch no reason to not download the game.
  • Huge Map – Fortnite: Battle Royale comes in a huge map, that is adapted over time by Epic Games. For example, a month ago a meteor crashed into the map changing the map slightly. The great thing about a large map is that it takes quite a long time to explore the map – a Battle Royale makes it possible to do just that.
  • Different strategies and tactics – Battle Royale is an effective game in allowing the player to adopt many different types of tactics to win. Where should you parachute in? Should you camp? How to deal with conflict? There are many ways to play the game.
  • Cartoon style – Because the game is a very ‘cartoony’ that does not show blood and is quite ‘goofy’ in some sense, it is great for all sorts of ages.
  • Building – The fact that you can harvest the map of resources, to build your own walls and stairs, makes it different from other Battle Royale games. This effectively also adds to the tactics, where players can quickly build walls as barriers to bullets.

Writing the most amazing content in the world will only get you so far online. A lot of the SEO effort, as Image result for post titlewell as getting the web user’s attention, comes in the title of a blog post. An effective blog post title has the potential to get the web user’s attention, as well as work towards pushing the blog post up search engine results page (SERP). With this, here are four tips to writing a blog post title that will encourage web users to click onto it and increase the post’s ranking.

 

 

Use Numbers

Numbers are an extremely good way of making a blog post title more clickable. For example, ‘How to Get Your Blog Posts Ranked on Google’ is not as appealing as ’99 Ways to Get Your Blog Posts Ranked #1 on Google’. Numbers make it possible for articles to become quantifiable, whether that is how much help they can provide or to tell the web user how long it is going to take them to read the content.

 

 

Stay Accurate to Blog Post Content

An extremely important point to a blog post title is that it should never lie about what the content is about. The blog post title should link directly to the content, so that the expectations of the web user are met when they click onto the link to the content.

If you try to oversell your content, then what you will find is that your blog posts gain a high exit and bounce rate, from the web users clicking off from a lack of clarity between the title and content.

 

 

Shorter the Better

Google automatically puts a limit as to how long titles can appear in SERPs. Of course, you should never exceed such a limit, since this will cause the end of the title to appear as ‘…’, causing the title to potentially not make sense in SERP.

Even with this limit, it is recommendable to keep your post title as short as possible. As well as looking more attractive in SERP, keeping it concise will help to give an impression that your content will be concise too, which the majority of web users like.

As a general rule of thumb, a title between 8-12 words is around the sweet point for clicks and social shares. Any shorter than this and it is likely the title won’t be accurate to the content.

 

 

Add 1-2 Keywords

The title is important to the SEO efforts of your article. For this reason, you should look to include around 1-2 of the main keywords from your content into it. From doing this, the SEO of the article towards such keywords will naturally increase, helping for your article to rank higher on SERP. A higher ranked article will then have more chances to be clicked onto by the web user.

No matter what you are trying to market on the internet, you will always need a landing page to point Image result for landing pagecontextual traffic to. The landing page is a hugely important element to internet marketing. Think of the process of marketing something to web users as a line of dominoes. If the last domino, being the landing page, does not fall, then all of the previous effort to that will be futile. The landing page is where the conversion takes place. For this reason, it needs to be well designed in order to achieve a high conversion rate. With this, here are some elements that can make any landing page successful.

 

 

Varying Font Size

The key to a landing page comes with controlling what you want the web user to read first and last. This can be achieved through varying the font size of content on your landing page. In general, you will want:

  • The heading to be the largest font
  • If there is a call to action, this would be the second largest font
  • The sub heading to be the third largest font
  • The navigation menu to be the fourth largest font
  • After that, anything else can be the same size font

From doing this, you make sure the web users roughly read the content in the correct order to entice them the most into converting for you.

 

 

A Large Image

The phrase ‘a picture can tell a thousand words’ is often used based on the effectiveness of what is inside the image. If you use the correct type of image for your landing page, in a central location, the amount of content that is required to entice web users into converting can significantly decrease, helping to improve the chance of web users staying on your landing page for longer.

For example, if you was trying to market a new alarm clock, you could have an image of someone waking up happy in a light colored room with the alarm clock, in focus, closest to the camera – this would automatically portray the alarm clock in a positive manner, whilst allowing the web user to use their imagination as to how the alarm clock would look in their home. The image is also able to sell a feeling, as it portrays a feeling of happiness in the morning when buying the product – the web user wants to be the person waking up happy.

 

 

Rule of Three

The rule of three is a list of three bullet points which work to encourage the web user into converting for you. Instead of having heavy content to explain what you are trying to market, you could use three snappy bullet points which outline the main beneficial features of what you are marketing.

Ever since the death of the Nexus brand, Google has revamped its smartphone as the Pixel, which has Image result for google pixel 2come as a direct competitor to Samsung and Apple, unlike what the mid-range Nexus was marketed as. The original Google Pixel provided flagship specs with the latest and greatest Android operating system, making it a great phone for those that wanted lightning speed and early upgrades of OS. The Google Pixel 2 added squeezable functions, better cameras and a smaller bezel on the XL version.

With the Google Pixel 3 expected to be launched soon, here are some of the things the smartphone will need to succeed and ‘out do’ both Samsung and Apple.

 

 

Bezeless

A major problem with the Google Pixel and Pixel 2 was with the huge bezels at the top and bottom of the front of the phone. Compare this to the Apple iPhone X and the S8/S9 and it makes clear just how behind the screen was on the Pixel and Pixel 2.

In order to compete, it is a necessity for screens to be bezeless, or as close to bezeless as possible.

 

 

Lightning Speed

The Pixel 3 needs to have the latest specs inside it with the latest operating system from Android. Thankfully, this is likely to happen, since the previous two Pixels had exactly that.

Pixel phones are known for being stock Android with beautiful crisp performance – anything but that will be a let down by Google.

 

 

The Best Camera

Google has really upped the camera industry for smartphones with the best rated camera on the Pixel and Pixel 2 at the time. Although there was no dual lens for portrait mode, Google uses AI to blur the background, preprocessing: very clever.

In order to keep up this reputation, the rear camera on the Pixel 3 needs to be the best rated again.

 

 

Wireless Charging

Wireless charging is becoming a thing now, since many phones have removed metallic backings and opted for glass to allow wireless charging. This could happen to the Google Pixel 3, in order to compete with its rivals.

If wireless charging does not come to the Pixel 3, there should be an improvement to the cable charging speed, to make it stand out to something such as the Dash Charging there is with OnePlus.

 

 

Battery Life

The great thing about having stock Android on a smartphone is that the battery life is significantly improved without having any junk and skins on top of the OS.

Google is not known for sticking large batteries in their Pixel smartphones, again, unlike what OnePlus do. However, this is not particularly a bad thing. Google Pixels generally get really good battery life, even with small battery capacities. The Pixel 3 should still be able to last at least 1-1.5 days without charging.
