How To Make Your Website More Panda Friendly

The recent Google Panda update has raised the bar not only for SEO experts but also for web designers. It’s getting tougher and tougher to rank well and that means that you really have to pay attention to all designing and Google ranking factors. When we do this, search engines rewards us because we are rewarding our audience and providing them with the information and experience they are looking for. The following points will help you to make your website panda proof:-

1.Content is key:The Panda algorithm update emphasizes providing assurance only on websites that contain unique and useful content. This will help users better find content relevant to their search. If you provide web page content that is unique, relevant, high quality and preferably 1000+ words, your site will likely be rewarded with improved rankings and therefore, increased traffic.

2.Above the fold design: Narrowing your header images, removing header banner images and pushing more content onto the top of your site will help with Panda.

3.Web Page indexing: A website with more than 100 web pages and maximum pages indexed by Google would be considered as a Panda friendly website.

4.Page rank: Page rank is still one of the most important factors. PageRank is an independent measure of Google’s perception of the quality/authority/credibility of an individual web page. It does not depend on any particular search phrase. Google conveniently reports this as a number from 0-10 (10 being the best).

5.Check your Domain registration: Domain registration for five years helps to enhance authority points. This is a small tip, but every little bit helps.

6.Webmaster tools: It enables webmasters to get a better idea of what Google “thinks” about their web sites, how the Google “spider” sees them, and what improvements could be made.

7.Social media proof: Google Panda takes social media trends seriously and content that is loved by social media sites like Twitter and Facebook gets better position in search engines.

8.Optimize for Fast Load Times: Avoid flash, single background images in the website. Google tends to favor sites that are snappy, quick, and fast.

PokéVision Help Pokemon Go Players Find Pokemon From Home

PokéVision is a tool that Pokémon Go players have been searching for in order to make their Pokémon Go playing easier. PokéVision makes Pokémon Go hunting easier by interfacing with a Google Maps type of interface that, at least in theory, allows users to type in their address in PokéVision and see where nearby Pokémon Go goodies exist. As of this writing, the PokéVision website is not making Pokémon Go hunting easy due to the Pokémon Go servers either being down or under a heavy load.
“The Pokémon Go login servers are currently unstable or offline. Scanning may take longer than expected until issues are resolved. You can only scan once every 30 seconds. Unable to scan for Pokémon, retrying in 30 seconds. If this continues to fail then the Pokémon servers are currently unstable or offline.”

PokéVision would be an ideal way for Pokémon Go trainers to plan their hunting trips, instead of leaving their homes and wandering around aimlessly until a Pokémon character pops up on the Pokémon Go app. While some who love Pokémon Go might consider using PokéVision cheating, others might consider PokéVision more like a travel agent.

Learning where the best Pokémon reside prior to leaving home via the PokéVision website could help a person determine they’d like to visit five locations, for example, and therefore, plan their trips accordingly. As seen in the above photo, players appear at the India Gate monument in New Delhi, India.
PokéVision describes the benefits of their website as listed below.
“Find all Pokémon near you (or a selected target location) in real time for Pokémon Go. Pokémon nearby will be marked along with their appearance timer on the map. These are real time Pokémon locations, meaning they are currently live and can be found exactly at the marked spots.”

PokéVision is a Pokémon tracker/locator for the mobile game Pokémon Go. It uses the Niantic API to grab the location of all Pokémon near your (or your selected location) and display them on the map in real-time; this means if it is displayed on the map, you can go out and catch them! Note: Rarer Pokémons have a shorter appearance time so they might despawn; make sure to be quick and keep an eye on their timers!”
PokéVision gleans their Pokémon Go information from the Pokémon Go developer Niantic in order to help PokéVision users find Pokémon Go rewards throughout the world. As reported by Express, PokéVision originally extracted Pokémon Go information directly into their website.

PokéVision is an add-on for browsers that aims to make Pokémon Go playing easier, but PokéVision can only be as stable as Pokémon Go itself, which means PokéVision isn’t always stable.

Pokémon Go cheats like the third-party tracker tool that is PokéVision, which is being called the best for tracking Pokémon Go information. When PokéVision and Pokémon Go work correctly in concert, they are cutting-edge.

The enhanced interactive map that is PokéVision offers real-time Pokémon Go hunting. PokéVision also makes Pokémon Go playing easy for players to utilize when it works. PokéVision aims to take away the difficulty of Pokémon Go playing. The theory is that PokéVision means Pokémon Go players don’t have to walk or drive to a far location, only to discover nothing good near them.

PokéVision is only one of several third-party apps or websites that allow Pokémon Go users to garner more Pokéballs via their app. At times, Pokémon Go trainers have reported that PokéVision worked better than Pokémon Go itself.

PokéVision could help Pokémon Go players like the above Japanese high school students playing the game in front of the Zojyoji Buddhist temple in Tokyo.

Turning Your Android Device On Without Pressing Any Buttons

Wouldn’t it be fascinating if your phone’s screen switches the moment you pick it up? Believe it or not, there are a number of applications which do exactly that! These apps are developed to ensure that Android phones’ screen lights up without having to press any button. Although this feature is a small addition to your smartphone, it is quite an intriguing one. Not only can it be used for convenience sake, but can also be a lifesaver when your power button isn’t working. Here’s how:
The Gravity Screen Off App:
This app detects your body movements with the help of your phone’s sensors which provide the app with position and proximity information. Thus, this feature is able to automatically block the screen the minute you put it in your pocket and light up on its own once your phone is in your hands. So helpful, right?
Pocket Sensor
This app is able to recognize that your phone is in your pocket. The first option you see is the pocket sensor and it also lets you set an angle on it. If you move the phone below the set angle, the screen will go off. There’s an option to set an angle as high as 90 degrees and as low as zero. Once you select your favoured angle, tick the ‘Any Direction’ box. In case you change your mind, all you have to do is deselect this option.
Table Sensor
With this option, your phone turns its screen off when you put it on a flat surface, face up. There’s also an option to change the angle of the table sensor if you wish to. Although, you will have to deselect the ‘Any Direction’ option before changing it.
Proximity Sensor
In this part of the settings, the app provides the user with two different options. Either ‘Turn Screen Off’ or ‘On by Proximity’. All that’s needed to be done to activate your screen is swiping your hand over the phone to stimulate the proximity sensor.
Turn Screen On By Motion
You will find a range of options to choose from, for example, turning your device on when it moves, or even when it faces upward. This choice, although, might not be supported on all android devices and the app gives the user a pop-up notification in case the phone is not compatible with it. But worry not, as you can always use the proximity option to turn the device’s screen on.
Keep Screen On by Motion
This feature prolongs your screen’s display timeout by detecting even the tiniest movements you make around it, without even you having to touch the phone. It allows you to set the sensitivity level, which ranges from 0 to 100. There is also a Booster option available which, once enabled, gives you a quicker response.
This application even offers other features like vibration, notification settings, disabling your lock screen and lots more. The Gravity Screen Off app has got it all covered. Have you experienced it yet?!

Pokémon GO Fan App Attracted Almost 300 Thousand Trolls in 3 Days

I write this post humbled. In some ways, I have learned more about human nature in the past two days, at least insofar as it relates to smartphone users and Pokémon, as I have in my time as an entrepreneur studying and working in the field.
The learning curve has been pretty steep, but the lessons valuable and, I believe, can be used by entrepreneurs and marketers who want to take advantage of unconventional PR opportunities in the future. It’s also pretty hilarious.


Rise of the Follow-On App

Apple’s fast new approval process is letting developers and marketers take advantage of flash trends that have a major impact on App Store search results like Pokémon GO. Approvals, which used to take around a week, are now often happening in less than 24 hours, meaning you can find complimentary use cases and put a rough product out there before the trend dies down — in fact, staged launches in other regions can prolong the “release effects” of huge titles for weeks.
Of course, we weren’t the only ones to realize this and take a ride on Hurricane Niantic. GoChat, the first local messenger service to pop up for Pokémon GO — released by a savvy beta tester a day before the headliner itself — reportedly saw over one million downloads before the young developer was undone either by his servers or his bank account and removed the app.
This was the first in a number (I’m guessing hundreds?) of applications hitting the app store to fill real or perceived gaps in the GO experience. Following GoChat, other in-app messengers were quick to jump on the distinctly lacking social functions of Pokémon GO and provide a way for “trainers” to communicate with other nearby users on the hunt.

On top of this, I can count at least 50 guides (perhaps the easiest thing to build) in the US App Store alone that have popped up in response to the light instruction given in the app, or just pure opportunism, or both — I can’t argue with $3.99/install margin over the cost of a Google search (very curious to see how many people opened their wallets for those).
Perhaps the most important and … illuminating … race in this game, however, has been for a location map marking pokémon in a given area. Like the two cases above, it’s based on a perhaps intentional limitation in the Pokémon GO UI, which only gives users visibility in the AR space near their current real world locations and an indecipherable ‘nearby’ feature. Given the intrinsic desire to “catch ’em all”, users were obviously eager to know the location of rare finds in the area …
Crowd sourced Google Maps started popping up first on web and were followed soon after with new approvals into the app store. These were based on a pretty simple principle: open the map up to the crowd and let all the good citizens populate it with their finds. Needless to say, the crowd certainly got involved, but being both unaccountable and of course eager to prove that we can’t have nice things they decided to fill the maps with false sightings and trash (which were subsequently rated into oblivion).

We Get Involved

Given the once-in-a-lifetime PR opportunity we saw (as well as our, um, abnormally high interest in Pokémon relative to our peers), our team at Unboxd decided to take advantage of tremendous consumer and media response with an app of our own.

On top of this, we were fairly confident we would succeed (although the meaning of success here had yet to be defined). Given our existing proprietary codebase from Unboxd and our CTO’s expertise in handling massive scale, we felt we were in a unique position to create a 3rd party app that stood out from the fray — and wouldn’t be crushed under the force of the Niantic wave.
In a single day, code was repurposed and elaborated on to create an interactive map in where users could upload screenshots of the pokémon they were finding, tag the pocket monster in question, and leave a nice comment. Others would be able to search the map and like the best shots. GoSnaps — Share Screenshots of Pokémon GO went live in the Apple App Store on July 14th in the early afternoon. I will explain the events that followed in terms of assumptions made and summarily disproven (with prejudice).
Assumption 1: We would have to tell people about it
Without a single post on Reddit or Facebook, at first hundreds, then thousands, then tens of thousands of people had downloaded the app. This was driven almost entirely by searches for Pokémon GO.
Assumption 2: Given the stated intention of the app, people would upload Pokémon GO screenshots
We are not (totally) naive, but nevertheless we thought a significant percentage of users would be uploading app screenshots or at least Pokémon-related content. We were wrong. At this stage there are 100s of thousands of uploads. Of these, only .5% are real screenshots. If you’d like to see select examples of the more appropriate uploads, check out GoSnaps on Instagram @gosnapsapp and Twitter @gosnapsofficial. For the inappropriate content, please message us directly ;)
Assumption 3: We could manage the incoming content
Likely victims of our own simple UI and the fact that we haven’t required any signup, we were almost immediately buried by user uploads of every kind. The initial reporting system that was implemented, essentially navigating from upload to upload and flagging content, was nowhere near enough to deal with the tons of incoming submissions (many of which paired tags of rare pokémon with, say, the flag of ISIS). Quickly an admin page was put up and AI implemented to sort the wheat from the chaff. Did I mention the chaff already includes over 300 thousand shitposts?

Takeaways So Far

Here’s a few of the lessons I’ve learned and some tactics you can use if you’d like to try a similar PR stunt yourself.
  1. ISIS are as good or better at marketing than the media has suggested. Expect to see inappropriate content early in the release cycle — even before your app takes off. Work on your reporting system while your app is awaiting approval.
  2. Prepare for scale from the beginning. Many users being exposed to your app are not early adopters and are unlikely to tolerate failure without leaving a nasty rating. We are lucky to have a real expert here and still have experienced some delays and difficulties with the load.
  3. Keep the interface super simple. Common sense dictates that the less friction there is in using an app, the more chances you’ll have for early engagement. This applies double for apps riding a significant trend.
  4. The primary driver of traffic in these situations is search and, as such, App Store Optimization should be your first priority. Name the trending subject in your app title. Don’t skip making a few professional-looking assets and screenshots before you go live — when the follow-on competition crowds the results you’ll stick out.
  5. Finally, people love selfies. Moreover, girls taking selfies all over the world think the Snapchat dog filter is cute and worthy of sharing both on and off of Snapchat. I’m not sure how to use this knowledge, but it is apparently an international and universal truth.

What’s Next

GoSnaps’ explosive growth isn’t over yet — we’re still adding somewhere in the range of 100 thousand users every day. More importantly, a steadily increasing number are coming back for more and we plan to make the experience even better for them.
Look out for the next version of the app which will bring list views, better sorting, a clear walkthrough, and a variety of sorting options to our interactive map.
Niantic, if you’re reading this, please direct all future acquisition offers to our head of IR … and no more low-balling it, y’hear!
