Guide to SEO the Google Way

A Beginners Guide to Search Engine Optimization (SEO) the Google way

I don’t claim to be an expert on Search Engine Optimization (SEO), although I have been writing content and building websites for some years, so I decided to write a beginners guide to SEO. In this guide I’ve documented some of my findings and lessons I’ve learned. Technology is constantly changing and search engines are being optimized and altered to find the best true content on the web.  By true content, I’m referring to the content that is original and interesting and not just created in an attempt to make money and trick search engines into better rankings.  Google is the largest search engine system used today and is the focus of this article, although the lessons learned here should affect your ranking in most search engines indexing your content. You can find information and announcements from Google on their Webmaster Tools blog related to their search engine technology, what to optimize and more. ...

The Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11 Is Flexible In All The Right Ways

I have had the honor of being a Technology Author for about 3 years now and it has been a blast. I have reviewed app, products, and even done a few editorials. After these 3 years I have learned a few things and have made my share of mistakes along the way. From what I have learned I have decided to start a little segment here on AndroidSPIN called “Writer’s Block”. This is where I will talk about tools that are available to writers from all walks of life and put them through the paces of what I think are a standard in this field. I do not claim to know it all and this is my opinion of a product that I have used personally for a month. This will not be a standard review as I will not be going into great detail about specifications I will use ...

Seagate 600 Series SSD Photo

Instant performance boost with the Seagate 600 SSD 480GB

We use all sorts of technology to write articles, hack and root our devices, play games and any technology that helps us do this better is fine with us. That’s why we are taking a look at the Seagate 600 SSD 480GB. It’s amazing how much storage technology hasn’t significantly changed for a long time. Computers and smartphones keep getting more and more memory and memory gets smaller and smaller, but computer hard drives have always been the throttling point of many products. The evolution of mechanical hard drives has finally reached a point where solid state memory is starting to replace them. No more tiny motors and magnetic platters holding your precious data and failing every couple of years. Solid State Drives or SSDs are now becoming a viable option as prices fall and speed and reliability increase. Laptops are the main concern as they are inherently mobile devices ...
