Do You Need Automated SEO Submission Software?

It’s a query that comes up quite often in the world of web marketing: should you be using SEO submission software? And unfortunately, I haven’t got a really clear answer for you – my answer is yes, no and it depends. Not the most succinct answer in the world, but I do have terribly definite reasons for giving it. Don’t worry, I could explain exactly why I think that way about SEO submission software and what I mean by my mysterious answer.

We’ll commence with the ‘yes’ answer. Yes, SEO submission software can be helpful. It will help you boost traffic to your website and get a higher ranking on Google and other search engines. Automated submission tools can also take a lot of work off your hands, automating things that would have taken you hours and making the full process a lot simpler. If your aim is to have a profit-making site, and you need to enhance your search site ranking quickly, then SEO submission software will be worth the monetary investment.

The ‘no’ answer is applicable to people who either aren’t ready for automated SEO software or do not have the money to spend on it. If your internet site is a hobby, or if you don’t care about your traffic levels or being found in the search sites, then you don’t actually need SEO submission software.

If you don’t have any budget for SEO submission software, and your site isn’t going to be a profit making venture for you ( although the discussion that every site may be a profit-making site could be made ) then you do not need to use SEO submission software either. what you should be doing is doing your research and learning everything that you can do to enhance your SEO without having to buy SEO submission software – you’d be confounded at the quantity of things that you can do to improve your search ranking by making a few straightforward changes.

There is a choice not often talked about, but one which should be considered. What kind of sites does the automated SEO software build links from. There are some real differences here. Some automated software seems to be built on the basis that each run of the software will be building new pages, on new accounts and often on new sites as old ones get burned out. Other SEO tools seem to go for better quality links and from places where the same account can be used over and over again. There are benefits to both extremes. The throwaway link building tools seem to be able to be more fully automated and thus may suit less skilled users, perhaps employees working at low cost, the other extreme takes more user input in order to get the details of the submissions right.

The ‘it depends’ answer directly is related to the quality of the automatic SEO software that you are planning on using. It relies on the quality of the SEO submission software itself. Don’t just buy the very first thing that you find. Do your research – make sure that you find a product that works for you and your internet site. You either need something in particular focused towards what you are trying to accomplish, or you want to find SEO submission software that’s sufficiently flexible to be customised to be precisely what you want it to be.

Buying Suggestions For Mobile Phones

Recent studies have suggested that mobile buying has increased by almost 6 percent since last year and the population of mobile owners would reach near to five billion people by 2015. This meant good news for companies who are just beginning to venture into the cell phone market as they would have the opportunity to cash into the increase in mobile buying trend.

However, this means that the consumers are more likely confused regarding the number of features that these carry and these change depending on the manufacturer of the mobile phones. For several years these phones have stopped being a means of communication as people have started going for phones which have high clarity cameras, a range of apps and music/video players which can carry an array of different codec. Hence, in order to ensure that there are no confusions and regrets regarding the phone that is being bought or being gifted to another individual go over the below mentioned phone buying guide which details some basic questions and choices of mobile phone buyers.

How Much Can I Afford?

The cost of the phone can vary depending on the fact that a person might buy it in one go or go for the contract of pay-while-going plan but the thing is that the latest advancements come with a good price. However, the things which can enhance or reduce the budget are the accessories. The common accessories sold with phones these days include a simple headphone set, battery charger, USB cord (if supported by the phone) and the phone itself. There are some items which the user can look over if the budget is good enough.

However, it is prudent to only buy which are worth the use as there are a lot of things which a normal buyer might not have heard of and seeing them can be interesting for the first time. These things include a car charger, a battery with longer life or another battery to spare, memory card, Bluetooth adaptor for computer connection, Bluetooth headset, a better set of earphones, a car hands free kit, desk stand for businessmen, carrying cases and covering packs.

What should be chosen if being in touch is a Priority?

Being in touch or communicating is not just limited to talking and it usually encompasses being available for every individual all the time. The primary need is for the voice calls which are why it is prudent to check the voice clarity and volume level provided by the phone. Also, check if it has speaker phone ability as well if desired. This thing should be noted that voice calls have already gone third generation with the introduction of video calling which allows the individual to video chat with the person he/she is calling. Read more into internet connections later for this.

Then there are the SMS and MMS services which allow you to send texts, files, clips and audio files from one phone to another. Some phones also have IM function which allows an individual to SMS chat with one or more people simultaneously.

As for being available all the time, the battery of the phone plays a major role in it. This is calculated by the battery life and it is served by two different parameters – standby time which offers how much time the phone would work if let loose after being fully charged and then there is talk time which tells how much time the phone would work if the person talks on it the whole time. This should be noted that it would discharge continuously and won’t recharge again after a certain time (which can also be enquired from the phone dealer or seller).

Being available on the road would require the need of a car charger which is usually plugged in the place of the cigarette lighter and a wired earplug or wireless Bluetooth headset through which an individual can talk while driving comfortably. One can also find meeting features enabled in which the phone is silenced automatically and the callers are even informed regarding how the caller wishes to be contacted (for example, just by SMSs).

What should be chosen if staying informed and organized is a Priority?

Many people buy new phones because their older ones don’t have the features that are listed in the newer ones and better internet facility and new apps are the two most noted of these features.

Internet: The basic internet browsing service in the older phones was that of WAP in which the sites were customized or simplified to fit the phone. Then there came GPRS and EDGE which provided users the ability to browse WAP pages at a high speed or to see the ‘original’ web pages. These are much better for sending emails, IMs and other online activities and the users are just billed for the data transferred. The EDGE service is faster than the GPRS when it comes to transfer speed.

The third generation technology has come in the form of 3G phones along with Wideband CDMA. The best feature regarding this is that the user can transfer data while talking on the phone but the 3G networks are low in number as compared to GPRS/EDGE. These technologies sometimes also come with WLAN and Wi-Fi service that allows the phone to work with modems and routers. Do ensure that the phones chosen with these services do have good sized screens because browsing on small ones can make things illegitimate and frustrating.

Apps: As for the applications, just go for a JAVA phone as all the latest and sophisticated applications are based on this platform. Most of the new phones these days come with the software pre installed.

What should be chosen if looks are a priority?

A lot of phone buyers have gone for cells which just looked good but it is important to not be swayed by any of this as this phone(s) might not be easy to use. If looking for a phone which can make a style statement, then go for a brand which offers good resale value. The basic looks can be interchanged for phones that flip or slide as opposed to the usual bar form. Moreover, color cases should be considered by buyers with low threshold for boredom.

What should be chosen if Camera functionality is also desired?

Nowadays, it is a lot easier to go for a phone which can also be used as a digital camera. Most of the mobile phones are included with camera option but not knowing the specifics can be a problem in the future. The specifics are mostly attributed by the camera resolution. The earlier phones had VGA cameras which had lower resolution or picture quality/size while the newer ones come in the range of 1.3 MP (mega pixel), 2MP, 3MP, 5MP and some phones even have more. People looking for a handy camera should try to go for 2MP or above. Some other specifications include the sensor of the camera (time delay in picture taken) and the lens used. The latter should be of good quality and from a very good brand to ensure longevity.

These phones can also be used as video recorders or camcorders while MMS service should be included if you desire to send photos and videos from one cell to another.

What should be chosen if MP3 playback is also desired?

Most of the new phones come with the service of MP3 playback but the earplugs that are sold with the phones mostly aren’t good enough. Hence, ensure that there is budget for better headphones and the socket is a standard one otherwise only similar brand headphones would have to be bought in the future.

What are some other things that can affect the mobile phone choice?

The most important thing to look for is that the phone and its keypad should be usable. People not comfortable should either go for phones that support both or the ones that just have the keypad in them. Young buyers might desire games in their phone but that is easily covered through JAVA application software.

Mr Jones’ Graveyard Shift Full Game Review

All I have to say is Mr. Jones’ Grave Yard Shift has to be one of the most overlooked and underrated games of the year! This game has so many elements to it that make it a 5 star game. This game has everything from beautiful graphics, funny characters, comical names given to the graveyard clients, plus it creatively blends tycoon money management, time management, and simulation gaming styles all into one package.

The game starts off with a short story explaining how Mr. Jones and his old friend Mimi came to know each other and explains Mimi’s wish that “Jonesy” come join her in the Caribbean, but, before he can join Mimi, she has numerous gifts she wants to receive before Mr. Jones is welcome to come meet her. Mr. Jones’s faithful canine companion finds a flyer about running his own graveyard, which starts the adventure of running his own graveyard.

The game play concept for Mr. Jones’ Grave Yard Shift is really pretty simple. Customers or clients (what do you consider a dead person needing to be buried?) drive into the graveyard area in front of Mr. Jones house. Mr. Jones must meet them at the graveyard gates and speak with them to discover what kind of grave plot the family would like for their deceased family member. The first clients will only require simple grave plots with simple decorations, but as the game continues, clients will be much more particular about where in the graveyard they want to be buried and what items they want around the grave site, plus the value of the grave plots will start to increase dramatically.

Now knowing the clients wishes, Mr. Jones goals are always the same. First, he must first dig a grave in his graveyard. Second, Mr. Jones must attempt to satisfy the customer’s wishes by purchasing the items requested such as flowers, lamps, benches from the shop keeper and place those times around the open grave. Finally, Mr. Jones must purchase and place a head stone above the grave and engrave it with the family members name to complete the deal. When all these steps are complete, the casket will drop into the grave, a burial service will commence, and finally Mr. Jones will be able to collect his graveyard fees from the family waiting for him back in front of his house.

Each day ends with Mr Jones going to sleep in his house, either voluntarily by entering his house and choosing to go to sleep, or, ghosts will come out at night and if a ghost touches Mr. Jones, he will be transported to his house and forced to sleep for the night. But, before Mr. Jones can sleep, you must decide how much of his graveyard earnings you will give to Mimi’s gift fund to purchase her gifts.

So, some of you may be thinking “Why on earth does this sound fun? Dealing with dead people, graves, grieving families, etc?”, and yes, the games concept is a bit unorthodox, but, Mr. Jones’ Grave Yard Shift has really done a great job of taking all this in stride and making the whole process very humorous, light hearted and entertaining process. The whole concept is so unique; it just begs to be tried out!

The core of the game play really does a great job at mixing tycoon style money earning and management strategies along with time management gaming styles. While the time management aspect of the game is not as critical to your overall success, Mimi is waiting for her gifts, so the longer you take getting her the gifts, the more vocal she becomes about being impatient about waiting. Mr. Jones also has to manage the time it takes to burry each client, usually you only have two days to complete the requested work or you will lose the client and as a result, you will lose reputation points.

The tycoon game play style becomes more critical to Mr. Jones success as you start to encounter new clients with more expensive tastes. Balancing purchasing gifts for Mimi at the end of each day while keeping enough money in your account to make more and more expensive item purchases from the shop keeper can be a balancing act in itself.

The beauty in all these gaming styles is none of them overshadow the other. The game really has no time limit so if it takes you 30 days to satisfy Mimi’s requests or 90 days, it’s all up to you. It allows a lot of freedom in the game while still allowing you to achieve your goals and enjoy the game play at the same time.

Final thoughts; while the idea of dealing with dead people and running a graveyard may seem a bit morbid, don’t overlook this game! I found it to be extremely entertaining and well worth checking it out. The graphics alone in this game can be stunning. For example, stand in your yard in front of your house as the sun is setting in the graveyard and watch the realistic shadows grow as the sun sets, very impressive for a casual game!

I give Mr. Jones’ Grave Yard Shift a solid 5 out of 5 stars for its unique concept, well crafted gaming style blend, and the fantastic personally ingrained into this game. Check it out today!
