Asus Transformer Pad

Keyboard

A frequent complaint amongst those gaming on a tablet – even hugely successful ones like the iPad – is the absence of a physical keyboard. Thus, the option of using a docking keyboard with all Asus Transformer Pad models makes the gaming experience a bit easier. The users have the luxury to get connected through the docking keyboard and enjoy unlimited gaming all day long.

Screen

This varies depending on the model you choose, but the more expensive Transformer Pads – like the Infinity, boast a screen size and image resolution that will have even Apple getting nervous :P. The all new stunning 10.1 inch of screen size is something amazing for the gamers.

Enabling Online Games

Bigger screen size and a powerful processor are the key factors in bringing good quality to the games. Many modern games utilize increasingly sophisticated and immersive graphics; meaning the quality of screen size and resolution very important to the overall experience.

Striking Attraction

The all new TF700 comes with a striking amethyst gray finish color. The metallic back with the silver color embossed on it gives a stunning look to the device. The tablet also comes in Champagne gold color. If you think colors will intrigue and will capture your interests apart from the gaming intentions, then TF700 can be the best pick for you.

Processor

The upgrades to the original Asus Transformer (the Prime and the Infinity) both feature quad core Nvidia processors which provide gamers with virtually unbeatable graphics and processing power, making them ideal for playing 3D games – whether it is online casino ones or any other type. This processor is available with all models of the Transformer Pad now, including the budget price 300 model. Infact, this is the only product to boast a 1.7 GHz CPU and has the capability to support the PS3 and Xbox controllers.

HDMI Port

The Micro HDMI port of TF700 and some of its other Asus versions helps the users to connect the device to monitors or big screens. It helps them to play the games and enjoy a unique experience. You can get them connected through the wired PS3 or Xbox controllers. USB compatible games can also be played. It even supports gaming through dongle devices. So, what more is awaited and it’s time for the gamers to jump into action!!!

Games

This has been a key area where all Android devices have always been lagged behind by Apple, but more of the popular iOS games than ever are now available for Android as well. In addition, really good games are starting to be designed for Android devices like the Infinity in particular, such as Zen Pinball THD.

Google store is stuffed with brand new games that are nascent when compared with the popularity of its Apple counterpart. However, the Android games are all set to give a tough challenge to the Apple games.

The transformer pads come with amazingly sharp and clear images even on big screens when connected. It is the perfect device for the full time gamers and the money you spend on this device is rightly justified.

Do let us know what do you feel about the Transformer Pad tablet range by Asus!

Recovering From A Google Penguin Attack

It’s tough but it can be done. I have known many blog and website owners simply giving up after the Google Penguin attack. Panda was bearable in comparison. This post is about how you can survive and recover from this massive web-cardiac failure.

Google Penguin Update - Web Spam Algorithm

Cleaning up your act

Google Penguin is about spammy stuff – both content and inbound links. Recently, a friend of mine had to undergo the surgical operation of cutting out spammy content. Let me tell you that it’s painful. In some cases you have to rebuild the entire lot.

To begin with, it’s necessary to understand what spammy actually means. But here lies the paradox. No one really knows what’s spammy. Is putting your keyword in title spammy? If the keyword is both in web page and title, does it mean spammy? No one really knows and therefore it’s better to tread on the cautious side.

This means drumming down your SEO to a level that it’s no longer SEO – it’s pure content. Don’t ask me what happens to keyword density and stuff we have been learning till now. Simply forget the past and unlearn quickly. Read this article to find out if your site has been hit by Google web spam algorithm update.

Delink all your spammy backlinks

This is easier said than done. I have tried this and let me assure you that it’s almost impossible to get rid of backlinks. I tried writing to the website and blog owners, begging them to remove my blog from their hugely popular sites but to no avail. What do these guys gain anyway? Nothing.

Meanwhile there are rumors floating around that creating dubious backlinks for your competitors has been an SEO strategy. Simply put a few backlinks of your closest competitors and watch them sink down the search pages. Frankly what can you do if someone else adds backlinks of your blog on spammy  sites?

There is nothing stopping anyone from doing it.

But there are some things you can do about bad backlinks. First of all, you must get out of directories and article submission sites. They are the most dangerous as far as Google Penguin is concerned. Even this can prove to be tough but can be done. For someone starting a new blog, it would be advisable to avoid directories totally.

In our hurry to start hitting the first page of Google search results we forget one cardinal principle – nothing happens in a jiffy. A fruit has to come from a flower and this takes time. Don’t rush things. Even if you are planting backlinks, do it at a reasonable pace. Don’t put a hundred backlinks in a month. You are putting out red flag for Google.

Got very serious? Never mind, check out this funny take on Hitler’s reaction to Google Penguin.

Conclusion

Google Penguin carries a mean bite. Once you get bitten, you are mauled. Recovering from its dreaded bite is tough and a long process. It takes time and effort to get back on your feet.  But it has been done and you too can do it. Best of luck!

This is a guest post by Victor. Victor is an avid blogger and likes to talk about blogging,  SEO and other related issues.

The Subtle Difference Between Google Panda And Penguin

There seems to be a tsunami of Google attacks on unwary and unsuspecting blog and website owners. Those who have escaped the fury are a happy lot. Those who got mauled are wondering what hit them. Most people assume that the Panda is the culprit mainly because this update has been in the news. But many are unaware that the new Penguin update is more dangerous and ugly. Check out our earlier posts about the Google Penguin Web Spam Algorithm update below.

 

Google Panda and Penguin Algorithm Updates

The Good Old Google Panda Update

I call it good old Panda update because it has been around for some time now. Other than that there is nothing good about it. Google Panda update went after blogs and sites which provided poor quality content. There is a complex algorithm which calculates the quality of your content and it seems that it works well except in a few cases. Google says it’s worth sacrificing these blogs and sites for the larger good. The blog owners would tell you a different story. Anyways the last known Panda update was on 19 April 2012.

The remedy for escaping this update is to keep your site filled with great content. Another reason why you may have been victimized is because you participated in some link exchange or link network. It’s always good practice to get backlinks from reputed sites and not from link farms. If you already have links from doubtful places it’s time you purged your blog from them.

The New Google Penguin Update

This is the latest weapon which Google has launched on blogs and websites. Google Penguin Web Spam Algorithm update attacks all spammy sites and eliminates them from the search results. If you are smiling because you are confident that your blog doesn’t fall in this category, you might as well wipe that smile off from your face.

Many nice and excellent websites have been struck down by Google because they suspect that these are spammy. Even over optimized sites have fallen prey to Penguin. The worst is that Google will not consider re-indexing your site even if you prove that your site is genuine. This seems to be a new kind of nepotism about which you can do nothing except prey to your respective gods.

If you have escaped the wrath of Penguin, it’s still not time to sigh and sit back. You must actively reconsider all your content and SEO strategy. If you are a lover of SEO it’s time you fall out of love. It’s simple – either you kill the over optimized content or be killed. Go through your website or blog carefully. Find and erase all traces of optimization. Let your content look natural. You must forget about keyword density as well – 2% keyword density is now history. It’s the Title, keywords, positioning – everything which is coming under the Penguin scanner.

Conclusion

Google wants to make its search the best. In this endeavor, it’s going hammer and tongs in eliminating poor content. Google Panda and Penguin are attempts in this direction. As blog and site owners, we must either live with the updates or face consequences.

If your iPad is running too many apps and you are not able to see them all on the bottom bar, swipe your finger across the bar and all the apps will be displayed.

15. Display The Bookmarks Bar In Safari
Safari doesn’t display Bookmarks by default on the iPad. Click Settings on your home screen, select Safari, and then slide the Always Show Bookmarks Bar switch to ON.

I hope that these quick tips will help you get the most out of your iPad. Direct your browsers to our dedicated Apple Gadgets and iOS News blog.

Three Ways I Promote My Technology Blog without Spending a Dime

Over the years, many people have entered into blogging in a rush and after some time jump out of it as a result of frustration. The reason why they are frustrated may be because of lack of traffic or some other things such as the end result which is money – since many of them started blogging for the purpose of making money faster.

When I got started with blogging on my technology blog, techatlast, I never thought of making money neither did I have any plan of promoting the site to get daily visitors coming to view my blog. But one thing I can remember then was that, I would make proper use of blog commenting by leveraging much on dropping my website links on different websites every day without getting tired of doing it.

Free Website Promotion

I have given in this article, three steps I used to promote my blog without spending a dime. And you can use that same technique too. Before you jump on to read those, do have a look at the below articles which have helped other readers in promoting their blogs:

I comment on other blogs very effectively

One of the powerful techniques I used when promoting my website was to submit more comments on other websites in my niche. I made sure that I visit more than ten websites per day and commented on each one of them before leaving for another – I do read the posts before submitting my comments because this is where many failed it.

This technique, after some weeks, made it rank higher on Google on countless of keywords even without a targeted keyword. If you can use this method, I’m very sure that you can get good result as fast as possible.

However, one thing you must have in your mind is that, spamming other blogs in your niche with irregular comments can hurt your reputation. So, don’t attempt to do it that way, read all articles before you submit your comments on them and it will surely work for you as well.

Also Read:

I share my website offline with my friends and other people

Another method I used to promote my website without spending a dime while also protecting my reputation is by telling my friends and family members to visit my blog. They visited the blog and from the information that most of them got from my site, they kept on sharing the information with their friends and loved ones. That action from my friend’s friends helped me triple my traffic overnight.

It is not every time the internet. You can use offline techniques in generating traffic for your website instead of focusing only on the internet because the internet is already filled with many options. And you need to be smart enough in order to get the best of results.

I use social media site consistently

Social media networking sites have proved to be a perfect place for getting quality traffic for years. It is because millions of people visits those websites on daily basis, and the tendency of making money from such a medium is very certain – that is why many big companies spend lot of money to advertise there because of the result they get on their investment. I also made use of that medium by engaging my readers and followers on Facebook and Twitter with coupon and freebies offers which helps me in driving some percentages of them to my blog. And you can do likewise on your blog to drive more visitors to your website.

Also Read:

Techatlast was officially promoted virally by taking advantage of the coupon reign then, by offering people free discounts on products and giveaways on social networking sites like facebook. And they can access those coupons from anywhere they are worldwide – and mind me, it worked for me.

Following these three steps, you can promote your website without spending a single dime, except little time you will use. Website promotion is very simple if you know how to do the right things at the right time.

Do share your experiences and challenges that you’ve encountered when you did promotion for your website so that others can learn from them and I shall surely reply to some of your requests and comments as well.

The main useful usage of twitter is to share latest informative and interesting links on the internet.

Many people use twitter every day to share link of their latest blog post in order to get people that can come to the site to read the article. The large percentages of people that are on twitter are mostly bloggers because they have a lot of useful information to share with the world.

As a blogger, getting your website in front of as many people as possible should be your main concern. Therefore, that is why it is very much of imperative to know what to do to make sure that people get to know your website every day, every second and every minute of the day. You must do all you can do to make sure that your website become popular because that is one of the assurance that you can get more traffic to your blog in the future to come.

If traffic is your greatest challenges as a blogger, moving out of your comfort zone to drive traffic to your blog is the next available escape route for you because without traffic, your site cannot succeed online.

You might have been wondering how you are going to use twitter to promote your website with discount offers! You don’t have to worry much about this because getting traffic depends mostly on one term, which is to add value to people’s lives. The moment you start to add more value to other people’s lives, you will start to enjoy your success because it will pay you in the long run.

Check Out: A Simple Tactic to Write Blog Posts that Go Viral

The first time when I first started my coupon and discount promotion blog, YouLoveCoupon, I was unable to promote my website offers to people effectively because of the lack of knowledge of doing the job. My site became a barren in terms of visitors for months. Nevertheless, the moment I started to share discount and coupon offers like gravity defyer and 48hourprint to my followers on twitter, everything began to change for the better and the site started to experience traffic spikes on regular basis with the use of Twitter marketing technique.

Driving traffic to blog from twitter profile timeline is not an easy task though, you need the required skills like using the right marketing word and some other things to raise people’s curiosity to learn more about the free offer you are sharing with them on the site.

I have carefully outlined below three steps to use twitter to promote your blog or website with discount and coupon offers without spending much money on search engine promotion.

Follow the trend

The first secret that I found useful when I first started using the technique I am sharing with you is that, I make sure that I follow all the trends about the world and make proper use of it to promote my coupon and discount offers to make people come to my blog.

I followed many people on twitter in order to attract them to read my blog by signing up for my offers.

Following the trend in this sense means, that, to know what people want and then try to share a link to a resource post on my site that shows them how to get it at a discounted price.

Share your message with the right word

Another thing you need to take proper care of is the use of words. When it comes to marketing on twitter, there are different types of words you have to ignore and there are words that are supposed to be included in your tweets to make people to consider checking your offers. By understanding this word, you can be very much sure of impelling more people to your blog.

Do not spoil your timeline with bamboozle offers

Any offer that you know does not mean that it is worth promoting – you had better avoid writing anything about such because people that will come to your blog from twitter will have to click out of your site if they later get to know that the offer is not genuine. By following this, you can retain your website integrity and that will increase your traffic from twitter.
