Google Play is Google’s Android Market where you can buy and download mobile apps from. Android apps are on the rise and today there are so many different kinds of apps catering for various needs such as entertainment, lifestyle, business, gaming and so on. The popularity of the Android Market, now coined as ‘Google Play’ has been growing tremendously over the past year. With over 25 billion downloads, Google Play is the place to go for the newest, coolest and amazing collection of apps.

Speaking of gaming, the website is flooded with thousands of games and some can be so addictive you’ll just want to spend all of your time trying to get to the next level. One such game is FlaTank – A retro 2D Tank Maze War Game, which is available for free download. With over 72 5-star ratings, and above 20000 downloads, this game is undoubtedly very entertaining – especially for those who fancy war games.

The concept of the game is simple. All you have to do is work your way out of the maze while killing all the foes you meet with ammunition. There are lots of levels to get through and so it can keep you busy for a while. Do have a look at the website at this link, and tell me how it was! 🙂

Content is the key when it comes to improving search rankings. The greater the amount of relevant and fresh content that’s on a website, the greater the chance of search engines providing results that enable people to find your site. In a competitive market where Google is favouring regularly updated sites, it’s no longer enough just to perform SEO; you need to proactively build your website’s presence. Keep Google coming back by giving it what it’s looking for: more content updated regularly.

1. Make the news. In order for your site to rank at the top of Google, you need to ensure it’s the best resource for your industry. You can do this by adding daily news and articles. This provides regularly updated material for the search engines, which is exactly what they’re looking for.

2. Generate discussion. Having a blog on your site will give you the chance to express your expert views and opinions of your industry. It also gives readers and potential customers the opportunity to respond, generating discussion and user participation on your site.

3. Add more pages. Each time a page is added, it provides more criteria for the search engines to find. This increases its chances of being indexed and, if combined with updated and new content, will push your site up the search rankings.

4. Check your style. Content should tell the reader what the benefits of your service are. Sales information won’t encourage return visitors and won’t attract the all-important search engine spiders, but thought provoking and newsworthy comments that’s updated regularly will.

5. Go universal. Google doesn’t just list text in its results any more. Videos, images and other formats can be indexed if they’re relevant, so don’t forget about them when putting your content together. Regularly adding content that encompasses universal search will help you get into Google News results.

Hope these tips are helpful! Please do leave comments on other ways of carrying out SEO the right way!

Ever since Google disclosed in January that Internet intruders had stolen information from its computers, the exact nature and extent of the theft has been a closely guarded company secret. But a person with direct knowledge of the investigation now says that the losses included one of Google’s crown jewels, a password system that controls access by millions of users worldwide to almost all of the company’s Web services, including e-mail and business applications.

The program, code named Gaia for the Greek goddess of the earth, was attacked in a lightning raid taking less than two days last December, the person said. Described publicly only once at a technical conference four years ago, the software is intended to enable users and employees to sign in with their password just once to operate a range of services.

The intruders do not appear to have stolen passwords of Gmail users, and the company quickly started making significant changes to the security of its networks after the intrusions. But the theft leaves open the possibility, however faint, that the intruders may find weaknesses that Google might not even be aware of, independent computer experts said.
