With virtual reality headsets one of the must-have tech gadgets of 2017, we are at the point in gaming technology where the new technology is becoming affordable to the mass market. Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR and HTC Vive are all dropping in prices to something reasonable for consumers to afford. Now that VR is now affordable, this means the market is literally flooding with new games for consumers to try out their VR headsets with. Without further ado, here are the most exciting and anticipated games of 2018 to work with virtual reality hardware.

 

 

The Walking Dead VR

One genre that has really excelled at VR is the horror genre. Games such as Resident Evil have proven to Image result for walking dead vrbe great hits with VR and it looks as if The Walking Dead are looking to jump on such a bandwagon. Although not much has been released about this horror VR game, it is currently in the works and will utilize the story and zombie apocalypse environment to get the user right into the action.

 

 

The Inpatient

Another horror game, The Inpatient works on the ‘butterfly’ effect where every decision you make will affect the outcome to the story. With extremely good graphics and a sense of horror where you control the story, quite literally, this is a game that will get the best of people scared.

 

 

Ace Combat 7

The majority of games that head on over to VR are generally first person horrors or shooters. However, with Ace Combat, you are high in the skies as a pilot having duals with other jet fighters over beautiful scenery. This is a very different game to the rest of the VR games out there, making it a game that has gained a lot of excitement.

 

 

ARK Park

ARK Park is an adventure game where you are inside a dinosaur environment, similar to that of Jurassic park. The visuals are stunning and be able to transport yourself into such an environment (such as one with dinosaurs) is something many consumers will enjoy.

 

 

Bravo Team

Bravo Team is a first person shooter that utilizes co-operative play online to shoot your way through a European fictional war. Although it is by no means a Call of Duty replacement, it is one of the few first person shooters that really lives up to the limelight of being a solid first person shooter for virtual reality.

 

Whilst there are some other very exciting VR games that are coming out, it must be said that the market is still very small with VR games. Such games the consumers would love to see include:

  • Call of Duty VR
  • Fifa VR
  • Guitar Hero VR
  • Grand Theft Auto VR
  • Uncharted VR
  • Assasin’s Creed VR

As a first time website creator, it can be quite daunting trying to understanding all of the terminology Image result for google search consolethere is associated to websites and search engine optimization (SEO). One website that is extremely valuable to a website owner is Google’s Webmasters Search Console – this is a website which allows you to look into all of the statistics of your website that are associated with Google’s search engine. However, without knowing what each of the terms means, it can be quite useless. For this reason, here are the main terms explained that you will find in Google Webmasters Search Console.

 

 

Google Webmasters Search Console Terms Explained

Accelerated mobile pages, or ‘AMP’, is the term given to pages that are accelerated for mobile and can be loaded instantly from anywhere. AMP greatly reduce the load time for mobile pages.

Crawl errors are the errors which Google encounter when it uses its robots to sift through your content to index it into the search engine.

CTR is an abbreviation for Click Through Rate. It is the percentage of web users that click onto your search results in Google upon viewing it in search results.

Position refers to the position of your search result, on average (since organic position depends on many factors), for your content pages/posts.

Rich cards are structured data, in the form of boxes, from websites, that display information directly n Google search results, in response to the query searched. This can include lists, recipes, clear answers and more.

The Robots.txt file is a file that a website has to tell robots crawling through websites how to crawl through the specific website. Google Webmasters search console allows you to fetch as a robot to make sure the robots.txt file works and can be read properly.

Sitemaps are an .xml file that a website has to clearly display to search engines every page that is on the website, along with a weighting as to how important the page is. It can usually be accessed by typing ‘/sitemap.xml’ additionally to the home address URL. Google displays any errors and warnings associated with the sitemap, such as not being able to see links on the sitemap loading or changes in how many pages are indexed.

Soft 404 error is the term given to a page that cannot be found or is missing, whilst there is no official 404 server status code to make clear that the page cannot be found or missing. When soft 404 errors appear, it is a good idea to make sure they return 404 errors.

The Queries listed illustrate what web users are searching, using Google, to find a organic result to click onto your website. Next to the query displays how many clicks the query gets, within the given time frame.

With Android Oreo been the most up to date version of Android for nearly a year, it is that time for anImage result for android p name update to the Android operating system – welcome Android P.

It is currently called Android P due to the fact that the candy or sweet confectionery has not been officially released, yet. Likely contenders for this include Pancake, Popsicle and Pastille.

Although Android P does not come with any new major updates, there are a lot of incremental innovative updates which will come as a welcome to all Android users. With this, here are the top 5 Android P new features.

 

 

Settings App

Although it seems that the settings app changes with, pretty much, every iteration of Android that is released, there are some nice touches to the new settings app for Android P:

  • All of the icons are big, round and colorful circles.
  • There is a search bar to manually search for any setting at the top of the settings app, which is cleaner in how it looks.

 

 

User Interface

Google has updated some areas of the user interface to make it have a new look, whilst in some other areas by making it cleaner looking. Examples include:

  • Moving the clock from the right hand side of the top menu to the left.
  • The quick settings, when sliding down, are blue and rounded.

 

 

Volume Controls

When changing the volume, many people complained of the bar at the top of their smartphone appearing, usually disrupting whatever app they were in. This has been fixed by having a volume pop-up appear next to the volume buttons, helping users to understand easily as well as which button refers to volume up and down.

 

 

Quick Settings

As already mentioned, the visual look to the quick settings has changed with the icons being rounded and blue. Instead of swiping to the left when you have too many settings, it is a infinite vertical scroll down to see the remaining settings in quick settings. This helps to make it cleaner and easy to access all of the settings too.

 

 

Notch Support

Although this is not really a feature for the public, it is definitely something very useful for developers to use.

Notch support is a way for developers to see how their apps look on smartphones with a notch, which can be customized as to how large or small the notch is. This gives a very good indication that some 2018 Android smartphones may increase the screen size through having a notch, similar to the iPhone X.

 

As made clear, there are no sudden changes or big news surrounding Android P – it seems a very nice cleaner iterative step over from Android Oreo, for which was already a very good mobile system software.

After blogging for several years, I feel I have enough experience to pass on some wisdom to the restImage result for blogging 2018 of the community. I have had some brilliant start-up websites that have blossomed into something amazing. At the same time, I have had a few websites that have completely failed and have had to bail out of altogether.

As a keen SEO expert, I like to keep up to date with all things SEO, especially since a lot of my websites that are very successful rely on extremely good SEO. With this in mind, here are some blogging tips to take with you into the rest of 2018 to make your website’s organic presence larger.

 

 

Always Add Meta Descriptions

There is sometimes the tendency that if you gain, for example, a ‘green’ SEO light from a WordPress SEO plugin like Yoast, there is no need to further improve your post for SEO reasons – wrong! Just because your post got a ‘green’ light does not mean it is perfect by any means.

An area that makes a big difference for which people leave if they get a ‘green’ light for SEO is the description, since it is usually one of the last changes made, in terms of SEO to an article.

Regardless of what lighting system you receive for your post, always make sure your meta description is changed, so that it best reflects your article’s content, whilst luring the web user into clicking to find out more.

 

 

Check Your URL Generated

The vast majority of bloggers, when creating a blog post, let the software/platform they use to auto-generate a URL that fits with your title. The problem is that this does not always bring with it the best SEO:

  • Blogger likes to leave out connecting words such as ‘a’ and ‘the’ from the title into the URL. This can make a URL not make sense.
  • On the other hand, WordPress leaves everything in, which can make the slug of your post too long – a long slug impacts SEO negatively.

 

Proofread when Blogging

I cannot stress just how important it is for you to proofread your own work before publication. If you decide to not proofread, you are at risk of there being typos and sentences that do not make sense. Google can pick up on typos and web users will click away from articles with lots of mistakes, reducing the SEO of the post further.

 

 

Don’t Force Keywords

If you are making a relevant and good post, then the keywords should flow naturally into your sentences. There is a tendency to force a lot of keywords into the first paragraph for SEO reasons. However, too many keywords can work against you, so it is simply better to let the keywords flow naturally throughout your content, without using any force to get them into sentences.

It is definitely beneficial to use plugins for WordPress, such as Yoast, to help improve the search engine Image result for seooptimization (SEO) of a post. However, good SEO should come naturally – I guess the best way to phrase it is that you cannot polish a turd. You cannot give bad content good SEO. To have good SEO, you first need good quality content above anything else.

Taking this into consideration, here are some techniques you can look to adopt into your articles online to help improve the SEO of them.

 

 

Internally link 2+ Times

Internal links are vital to good SEO, since it produces a ‘spider web’ of links for which Google and other search engines can easily find your content and the content you linked to easily. The more complex the web, the better the SEO of your website and content.

On top of this, internal linking can help reduce your bounce rate by getting web users to click onto more pages on your website. This, in turns, also helps your SEO since the less people that click back to Google search engines, the better the ranking your content will get.

 

 

1,000+ Words Works Best

In general, the longer the content, the better the SEO. This is because the longer the content, the more content there is for Google to process and decipher what your content is about. This means the contextuality of your content to search phrases from web user increases, improving the ranking of your content.

Longer content also tends to go into more detail, which helps the web user too, since it improves the chances of the web user finding something that they did not know before or something they find useful to read.

 

 

Adopt a Sensible Structure

The structure you adopt for a blog post is crucial to the SEO of the post. If you write your posts using the standard font ‘paragraph’, then you will have a limited amount of SEO.

The best content tends to have a structure that follows something along the lines of:

 

Opening introduction paragraph, which is full of keywords and introduces the article briefly.

 

Heading 1 – this is the largest heading you can use to add importance to such text

Heading 2 – if you need another title below the first, then Heading 2 is what you use

Use bullet points when you:

  • Need to list things
  • Make many points
  • Lay out content clear concise

Repeat such a structure of headings and content until the last paragraph, which should be similar to the opening paragraph and used to conclude the whole article, potentially providing food for thought for web users to converse in the comment section or share the article.

 

Headings carry SEO weight to them, so are important to identifying the ranking of an article. This tends to be why headings are usually keyword dense in articles.

When it comes to choosing a smartphone, you can bet your bucks that you will choose between two Image result for Apple iOS vs Androiddifferent operating systems. There is the Apple eco-system with iOS and there is the Google eco-system using Android. Of course, there are other operating systems for mobiles but the two mentioned already are the biggest players, dominating the market.

The problem arises with which one to go for. iOS is good for different reasons as opposed to Android. For this reason, here are some thought starters to help you decide which mobile OS is the better and the one you should choose.

 

 

Simplicity vs Complexity

In general, iOS is deemed the simpler of the operating systems with Android being more complex. This tends to be the case considering that you are able to dive into the root of the system and install apps which provide yourself far more control over your smartphone, on the whole.

For some, though, this is not a welcome addition. Complexity is not always better and iOS is a good example of that, where keeping things simple and sweet helps to make an OS that works well.

 

 

App Restriction vs Open Source

Another key area that separates iOS from Android is with each app store. Apple has very tight restrictions on what apps are allowed into their app store. On the other hand, Android has very slack rules to their app store, and when apps are not allowed, it is an open source platform so it is possible for 3rd parties to still make apps and have them installed onto smartphones – a great example of this comes with betting companies.

 

 

Hardware

There is key differences between the hardware of iOS devices to Android devices. On paper, Android devices tend to be much more powerful. However, since the hardware and software has been developed by two separate companies, the extra power is loss in inefficiencies. When you look at Apple devices, they are always very smooth and quick, due to being made under one roof.

It should also be noted that there are many more Android devices you can choose from as opposed to Apple devices, from the likes of Google, LG, Samsung, OnePlus, Nokia, Blackberry, Huawei and more. For this reason, there are far more options.

 

 

Pricing

Apple is notoriously expensive when it comes to iOS devices, with the latest iPhone X breaking the $1,000 barrier. On the other hand, Android devices come in a wide range of price ranges, from $100 all the way up to $1,000. For this reason, it is far easier finding an Android smartphone within your price bracket than it would be to do for an Apple iPhone.

For the vast majority of you out there, as much as it is interesting for you to see what new phones come Image result for smartphones 2018out, you will always stick with a certain make, usually the successor from the smartphone you already have. For example, someone with an Apple iPhone 7 is likely to get the iPhone 8 and so on. For the majority, this is fine for them. However, if you really want the best smartphone to suit your needs, taking some tips when it comes to purchasing a smartphone might actually make you realize that there are better alternatives out there. Here are some tips to purchasing a smartphone in 2018.

 

 

Understand the Yearly Smartphone Cycle

The first step is to realize that smartphones are released on a yearly cycle from companies, following a structure similar to the one outlined:

  • January – This is when CES (Consumer Electronics Show) happens and sees a whole bunch of mid range phones released.
  • February – This is when MWC (Mobile World Congress) occurs, releasing phones for all tiers (upper, lower and middle tiers).
  • March – April – During this time, Samsung release their Galaxy S line smartphone, LG with their G line, Huawei for their P line and Motorola for the Moto range.
  • May – July – During this time, a release comes from OnePlus.
  • August – September – A time of the year that can be deemed the busiest for smartphones, this is where the iPhone, Samsung Note range and Moto Z Force update are released.
  • October – November – This is when the Google Pixel line is released, with the LG V series, another incremental OnePlus update and the Huawei Mate range is released.

Tip: Update your smartphone August onwards. This means the early smartphones are a little more discounted, whilst you can see new smartphones from the like of Apple, Samsung, OnePlus and Google.

 

 

Make a Decision Matrix

A decision matrix is a way of deciphering, with numbers, what you care about most. It can be done via table format where you:

  1. For the far left column, list what you care about with a smartphone (e.g. screen size, battery, features, software, camera etc.).
  2. In the next column, add a weighting scale from 1-10 as to how important each of the pointers from the list are to you (e.g. camera a 3/10, battery a 7/10 etc.)
  3. For each of the remaining headings, you have a different smartphone (e.g. iPhone X, Google Pixel 2 etc.).
  4. Rate each smartphone using the rating list you created. Multiply each value by the weighting.
  5. Whatever smartphone gets the highest score in total wins and should be the one you should buy.

 

Ultimately, you should not purchase a smartphone because you like something about it. You should buy it because it fits the needs you have which you care about most. For example, if you like the curved screen on the S9, does that mean it is going to fit the needs you have the most? How does a curved screen fit your needs? If it does not, then the ‘likeness’ around it will ware off very quickly.

Whilst it can be agreed that there are many reasons which point towards electric cars being the future of Image result for electric vehiclethe automotive industry, it does not mean that the new form of powertrain for vehicles is without its drawbacks. This is because electric cars are very new when compared to the traditional internal combustion engine, that has been with us for more than 100 years. With this, here are the main limitations that surround current electric cars in 2018.

 

 

Long Charging Time

When compared to filling up at a gas station, the charging time to charge the electric batteries is still very long, albeit it improving. For example, Tesla and others claim charge up times in around 45 minutes. Although this has improved considerably when compared to what it was before, at hours, it is still a very long time to wait if you are in a hurry to get somewhere.

I guess part of this argument can be eroded due to the fact you can charge electric vehicles at home, overnight. If this is the case, there is a strong argument you would never use a full tank of 200+ miles in one day and not need to care about the long charging time, if it can be done overnight.

 

 

Short Range

When electric cars first came to market, 100 miles was something that was considered a long range for electric vehicles. However, compare that to petrol and diesel, which are usually 350+ miles, it is still nowhere near enough.

Tesla seems to have cracked this by offering a 100kWh battery that can do around 380 miles. However, with this comes a huge price. Therefore, the technology for better range is there: just not at a price available to the mass market.

 

 

Life Cycle?

Due to electric vehicles using lithium batteries, the technology inside such batteries cause them to degrade over time, meaning that the range will reduce until nothing. Most electric vehicles should last till 100,000 miles. However, just how far such batteries can go is yet to be seen.

 

 

Excess Polution

Although green in terms of the fact that electric vehicles don’t emit any emissions when driving, the process to make electric vehicles is extremely polluting, often causing the benefits of electric vehicles to not outweigh the pollution during manufacturing, unless you do an excessive amount of mileage.

 

 

Expensive

As much as electric vehicles are the future, it is only for those that can afford it at the moment. Any electric vehicle is usually around $5-10k more expensive than the petrol of diesel version, making many consumers think ‘is the extra money actually going to be worth it?’ For many consumers at the moment, its a no until the price is more comparable to petrol and diesel vehicles.

When it comes to creating a WordPress website, one of the first things you will have to look for is to Image result for wordpress hostingpurchase hosting from a hosting company, so that the data for your website is actually stored on a host to be accessed when requested by yourself and web users. Choosing what host is best is difficult, considering the fact that sometimes going cheap does not always provide you the best hosting, in terms of customer support, up-time reliability and speed. For this reason, here are some websites you can look to get WordPress hosting from.

 

 

GoDaddy

GoDaddy is, by all means, not the cheapest solution out there for WordPress hosting. However, what you will get is 24/7 support and automatic updates every time WordPress is updated.

As a customer of GoDaddy, I have found the up-time to be very high, hitting most likely the 99.9% they claim. What I particularly like about GoDaddy is the fact that they automatically back up your whole WordPress website and provide plugins to help your WordPress website run.

 

 

HostGator

HostGator is one of the most used websites for WordPress hosting, with over 8 million users going to them for website hosting. They also offer a lot what GoDaddy offer, including 99.9% up-keep time, 24/7 support and one-click WordPress installation. However, just like you will find out with Bluehost, HostGator only provide their packages in the dollar currency, providing question marks as to how effective they will be for other countries and how much extra you will be paying to convert the purchase into the currency that you use.

 

 

Bluehost

Bluehost is one of the oldest hosting platforms for WordPress and is also the recommended hosting platform by WordPress themselves. They also have 24/7 support and even have extra benefits such as free SSL certificate and domain too.

However, it must be noted that, even though cheap, they only accept in the dollar currency, which potentially means Bluehost are more aimed at the US market than globally like, for example, GoDaddy.

 

 

1&1

If you are looking to save on cost with your hosting, then you should look no further than 1&1. 1&1, by far, offers the cheapest solution to WordPress hosting out of all of the before mentioned websites, with prices that are typically 20-30% cheaper. What is good about 1&1 is that the pricing plan is not dictated by the amount of visitors entering on your website, but by by the amount of SSD storage your website requires. For the vast majority of websites, the cheapest plan of 50GB should be plenty of storage.

Putting these good points to one side, 1&1 tends to be not as good for customer service and doesn’t tend to have as good an up-time than the other hosting websites. So it seems to be a trade-off between cost vs quality.

#5 Snipperclips
