4 Tips for Ecommerce Search Engine Optimization
When it comes to getting the most out of an ecommerce site, the key is getting your site noticed. The truth is that no matter how great your products or services are, your ecommerce site won’t be successful generating sales if your customers can’t find it. This is where search engine optimization or SEO comes into play. Here are four tips you can use to help you optimize your ecommerce site in order to boost sales and increase revenues.
#1 Having Proper Website Structure:
The number one thing that ecommerce website owners and developers can do to maximize the exposure of an ecommerce website is to make it easy for search engine spiders to gather information about the site for indexing. The reason that this is so important is because most customers aren’t going to find you by typing your URL directly. They are going to rely on keyword searches. Having your website properly indexed will ensure that your website will appear higher in search engine results pages.
#2 Using Unique Descriptions:
While it may seem a bit tedious, having unique product descriptions for each and every product on your site will set your site apart from all of the other websites selling similar products. Search engines will often look at these sites as more valuable than those that simply regurgitate the same old descriptions.
#3 Get Product Reviews:
Getting authentic product reviews are a great way to get exposure and increase the visibility of your ecommerce site. Encourage product reviews however stay away from paying for your reviews as both search engines and customers can tell the difference between organic reviews and those that have been paid for marketing purposes. Not only will these reviews boost your site’s reputation, it will also add additional keywords to your ecommerce site that will increase your chances of appearing in more search engine results lists. In addition, product reviews adds fresh content to your site, which has long been known as a great way to boost a website’s search engine ranking.
#4 Using Long-Tail Keywords :
SEO that is focused on keywords and phrases will not only not get your website noticed; it can sometimes get your ecommerce website banned by Google and other large search engines. Google has created a new algorithm to rank all websites and no longer places emphasis on websites that rely solely on keywords to establish authority. However, using long-tail keywords has the ability to ensure that your e-commerce site shows relevance for your target audiences, but will also help you avoid being ignored or banned.
These tips will help with your ecommerce SEO efforts and land it higher on search engine results pages, which is ultimately tied to how successful your e-commerce site is. By tweaking a few pieces of your ecommerce site, you can considerably increase your visibility and your sales in a matter of hours or days.

Americans love their smartphones almost as much as their cars. According to the Pew Research Internet Project, 90 percent of adult Americans have a cellphone of some kind as of 2014, and 58 percent of adults own a smartphone. Smartphones are as ubiquitous as cars in America, so it should come as no surprise that there are many great smartphone apps to help drivers maintain and improve their vehicles. Here are some of the best smartphone apps and tools to help you maintain your car and even improve its performance:
Car Maintenance Reminder Lite
The Car Maintenance Reminder Lite app allows users to input their car's make, model and year in addition to their last common car services. This includes fluid replacements, tire rotations, alignments, oil changes, and even windshield wiper replacement. Car Maintenance Reminder Lite is calibrated to estimate your daily driving at 15 or more miles a day, and calculates your estimated maintenance needs based on that estimate. When time thresholds are met for various maintenance needs, the app sends you an alert, letting you know when you need new tires, oil changes, etc. Finally, Car Maintenance Reminder Lite allows you to log important notes about your car, such as part numbers, and can track the needs and notes of multiple cars at once.
Dynolicious Fusion is an app that can help you fine-tune your car and detect when your performance is waning. By using the iPhone's built-in accelerometer, Dynolicious Fusion measures and logs automobile performance—measuring your vehicle's zero to 60 acceleration, measure braking speed, turning force and can even use this data to calculate your vehicle's horsepower. Dynolicious Fusion records and tracks this information almost as accurately as some of of the most sophisticated testing software and by measuring your car's performance before and after any modifications, you can compare the results to quantify improvements. The Dynolicious Fusion app also connects you with other car enthusiasts through its built-in social media tools so you can get instructions from other users for all of your maintenance and improvement projects. Finally, the Dynolicious Fusion app lets you create logs and share photos of your projects over social media so you can show off or get advice from other performance enthusiasts about your projects.
Torque Pro goes one step further than most apps by connecting directly to your on-board diagnostics port, giving you a powerful diagnostic tool. Torque Pro can read your CO2 emissions, provide acceleration information and read transmissions temperatures. Capable of checking your car's performance and alerting you to engine issues, Torque Pro also allows you to create custom dashboards that can provide information and measurements as you drive. Best of all, because Torque Pro gives you direct access to you car's on-board diagnostic software, you can find out exactly what the check engine light is actually referring to and even turn it off when you become aware of the problem. Getting an engine diagnostic from a mechanic can run you $100 or more, and being able to turn off that haunting orange light on your own is well worth Torque Pro's one-time cost of $4.95.

It's the second most expensive piece of furniture in most people's homes. Subscription packages cost an extra $50 to multiple hundreds of dollars a month. It's known as the boob tube, idiot box and the electronics baby sitter. It's the one device most people feel they can't live without. It's the television.
Statistically, the number of hours you watch television per day has a direct correlation on your weight and how it fluctuates. A 2006 study by Raynor and colleagues found that subjects who watched the most TV (3 or more hours per week) gained an average of 9 lbs per year. Those subjects who decreased their television watching naturally increased their physical activity and lost weight across the board.
The verdict on television's effect on a healthy lifestyle seems pretty grim. However, in recent years, there had been an upsurge in the popularity of healthy lifestyle programming. These shows fall into three broad categories: weight loss, healthy cooking and stress relief.
Weight Loss The Biggest Loser is a debatable member of healthy lifestyle programming, this show and others like it take overweight contestants and have them compete against other similarly obese contestants to accomplish their weight loss goals. The Biggest Loser has gained worldwide popularity with iterations of the show taking root in Brazil, China, Israel, Netherlands South Africa and Sweden.
The US version, currently shown on the NBC network, is a team based competition where contestants are weighed on a regular basis. At the end, the team that has lost the most weight wins. This show and shows like it have their pros and cons - while the show can be praised for providing examples of very overweight people who can and do lose a significant amount of weight, the show is also reviled by weight loss experts for being too strenuous and focusing too much on the end prize money and not enough on healthy weight loss habits.
Food is a very popular subject for television shows - there is even an entire network dedicated to it. The Food Network offers viewers their choice of "food porn" ranging from cooking competitions like Chopped and Cupcake Wars to reality shows featuring real restaurants like Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives to cooking how to shows like Barefoot Contessa. All have their own draw and offer their own varied contributions to healthy lifestyle programming.
One Food Network show, Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger, is an example of “healthy lifestyle” programming, as it shows viewers how to prepare quick, easy food that is high in neither sugar nor fat. The host, who is also a dietitian specializing in nutrition and health, focuses on showing viewers how to substitute “convenience foods” with real, whole foods in similar amounts of preparation time. The show also offers techniques for eating healthy even in challenging situations like at the office, in restaurants and on vacation. But of course, the tips shown on this program only work if viewers apply them to their own lives.
This is perhaps the most surprising category of healthy lifestyle programming. This category is the most subjective based on the viewer. A favorite comedy can provide relief from a stressful day by allowing the viewer to laugh. Not only does laughter feel good, it also triggers physical changes in the body; laughing lowers blood pressure, reduces stress hormone levels and boosts T-Cell counts, potentially stopping a cold from setting up in your body. Luckily these days between online streaming, on demand, and smart phones, we’re able to take our favorite gut-busting shows with us anywhere and watch them any time.
Everyone's sense of humor is different and different people will be drawn to different shows, but shows like The Big Bang Theory on CBS are an example of programs that provide a release vis a vis an unusual collection of humorous characters.
Television is a tool, and viewers who watch mindlessly will inevitably gain weight while being exposed to hours of senseless violence. When used strategically, however, it can be used to improve the viewer’s health and provide relief from the day’s accumulated stress.

Mobile gaming has become a legitimate competitor to console gaming systems, with emerging mobile technologies closing the gap. In fact, Frank Gibeau of EA told Games Industry in a recent interview that the iPhone 6 is on par with next-gen gaming consoles. Here's a look at some of the technology that is making the iPhone 6 into a contender in the next-gen gaming market.
One of the most notable advances from the previous generation of iPhone to the current generation is Apple's new Metal software. Debuting alongside the new iOs 8 operating system on the iPhone 6, Metal allows programmers and software developers easier, more direct access to the total computing power of the iPhone platform. Previously, the IGL software Apple utilized was seen as overly abstract, and many developers felt it inhibited their ability to take full advantage of the iPhone's processing capabilities. According to Apple, this new development software will eliminate many of the performance bottlenecks that previously were found in their traditional graphics APIs.
Metal is primarily aimed at game developers who are hoping to push the boundaries of what is possible on the iPhone. There's even a new SceneKit game development platform that will enable casual game developers to get their feet wet with the new Metal API and test out what the new iPhone 6 is capable of. Major gaming consoles like the Playstation 4 have many top-of-the-line games available for them, but the next few years may very well see the emergence of a new breed of mobile gaming. Software plays a major part in what makes the iPhone 6 an agile competitor in the world of gaming, but hardware plays an equally large role.
Metal would mean nothing if it didn't have hardware to run on, and the iPhone 6's hardware is Apple's most powerful to date. The iPhone 6's new 64-bit A8 processor is a huge leap beyond the A7 processor: Trusted reviews points out it has a 25 percent processing speed improvement and 60 percent graphical processing improvement over the A7. Built on desktop-class architecture, the A8 is coupled with an M8 motion coprocessor that reads data from the various sensors in the iPhone, enabling better power usage and performance even when devices such as the GPS and barometer are operating. The A8 is far more power-efficient than the A7 was, allowing users to play much more graphically intense games over long periods of time without sacrificing frame rate or processing speed.
The A8 is as powerful as it is because it utilizes a 20-nanometer process, working with two billion transistors to deliver performance that edges past previous iPhone benchmarks. Testing by GSM Arena found that the 1.4GHz dual-core A8 processor scored 21,204 points on the Basemark X GPU test, compared to the A7 processor's 20,254 points.
While it currently pales in comparison to anything available in home gaming consoles, it is important to keep in mind that all this power fits in the palm of a gamer's hand, and that's worth sitting up and taking notice. While saying that the iPhone 6 is on par with a system like the Playstation 4 might be a bit of hyperbole, it's easy to see why professionals in the field of game development are extremely excited about these new developments in mobile gaming technology.
