Top 7 Free Android Games

This is a guest post and today our author is Shelly Flaherty, in this post she explains about the top 7 free android games. See How to become guest author in Spice Up Blogging. There are hundreds of brilliant games now available on the Android Market, so many in fact that you sometimes have no idea which ones to actually bother with. We’ve tried and tested out a whole bunch of them for you so you can download only the best of the bunch directly onto your Android phone. There’s something for everyone on here, so you can guarantee you’ll be able to find one you’ll love. Some of these are mighty addictive, be prepared to invest some serious time into chasing high scores!

1. 4 Pics 1 Word ★★★★★

The name of this app pretty much describes exactly what it does. You are given four images, and a selection of jumbled up letters. These images all are related in a way that will be connected via a word, and you then go on and spell out the word once you get it using the letters provided. Some are very easy and don’t take much brain power, but trust us these get more cryptic and trickier as you go on. You may have seen screenshots of this app appearing all over Facebook of people struggling with harder puzzles, be prepared for a lot of head scratching with this one.


2. Guess The Movie ★★★★★

This is one of our favourite apps on this list, and a must have for any movie buffs out there. The app shows you simplified versions of original movie posters and then, of course, you ‘Guess the Movie’! Just how good do you think your knowledge of film is? There are multiple difficulty levels for those brave enough. Believe us, some are head slappingly frustrating and will have you shouting “I should’ve known that one!”  It’s a really fun and intelligent little app.


3. Coin Dozer ★★★★

Remember those irritatingly fun arcade machines, where you drop in the 2p and hope to see the precariously hanging sheet of other 2p coins get pushed off the edge? You’d often win a plastic cow or an edible bracelet, but they were still worth every £1 you ended up changing in and pumping in them? This is just that, but in mobile form, and will thankfully leave your pockets jingling with any change you may have in them. With cute little virtual prizes for getting enough coins pushed off the edge, this will provide endless fun. Also great for parents who’s little ones are kept occupied by your smartphone.


4. Temple Run ★★★★

One of the more well known apps and a sensation in mobile gaming is Temple Run. If you don’t know what it is, or haven’t heard of it before – it’s time to get downloading fast. Without a doubt possessing an addictive quality, you have to swerve, jump and manoeuvre your way through a treacherous jungle, collecting power ups and coins as you go alone. It gets notoriously difficult and leaves you constantly clicking the replay button. Not to mention there are creepy temple beasts constantly behind you, waiting for you to trip... Don’t be dinner!

Download/More Details

5. Vector ★★★★

A slick and sleek little game where you’re on the run from the minions of the totalitarian state you’re determined to break free from. With nifty intros and a James Bond-esque style, you have to slide, vault and sprint your way across rooftops of a dystopian city. A really all round ‘cool’ game, visually pleasing and packs enough content to keep you playing again and again.


6. Jurassic Park™ Builder ★★★

Based around the massive films in the Jurassic Park™ franchise, this app may be small but packs a big bite, a ‘Velocir-app-tor’, perhaps? With the chance to build your own Jurassic Park right from scratch this is a very Sims like little game. With the chance to hatch, grow and look after your own dinosaurs could you really ask for more? It is great for kids who, unfortunately, aren’t allowed their own pet T-Rex.

Download/More Details

7. Diamond Dash ★★★★

Another biggie in the app world, and massive popular is Diamond Dash. Encompassing the same addictive and fast paced action as Temple Run, this game is a favourite for all. With an arcade style interface, the aim of the game is to match coloured blocks as fast as you can. A twist on Tetris, we would say, and who doesn’t love Tetris?

SEO: Why keyword rankings are becoming harder and harder

This is a guest post and today our author is John, in this post he explains about the SEO expert is working. See How to become guest author in Spice Up BloggingGoogle and other search engines are always on a prowl to develop new strategies and come up with more updates to enhance the online search experience of their visitors. The increasing number of searchers on these search engines made every digital marketing company realize the value of getting a ranking on these pages. Thereby, the commencement of the process of search engine optimization took place. So let us first understand what exactly SEO is. SEO stands for search engine optimization, which is the process of getting a ranking on the 1st page of the search engines for the targeted keywords. 

There are various search engine optimization methods followed by any digital marketing company today, mainly the internal process and the external process. The internal process includes making the site of the client SEO friendly in such a manner that it gets the ranking. While external process mean where the marketing company or the client itself gets written various articles, blogs, press releases, etc. and giving backlinks to the targeted keywords. However, the external process is where the digital marketing company can experiment a lot and can explore new horizons to make the process more effective. One such discovered horizon is the social media arena. 

Strategies followed for SEO
The conventional SEO process is separated into two major parts i.e. the white hat technique and the black hat technique. The white hat strategies are more reliable and the ethical means of doing the SEO of any site. While the black hat strategies is more about tricking the system to get the desired results, even if it means to adopt unethical or inorganic methods. 

What is Google looking for?
However, the most important fact to ponder upon is what exactly it is that Google wants? Rather than doing things which are not accepted or unethical and get results, it is always wise to concentrate on what Google wants and act in accordance to the requirements. The main aim of Google is to bring to you (the searchers) the data and information that they are looking for effectively. Thus, they want real and relevant content with concrete and focused information on the said topic. If Google fails to give you the information that you (the searcher) wants, then it is not really doing what it is meant to. 

The effects of Penguin Release
Although SEO in itself can be defined as gaming the search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. to get a ranking, there are yet organic ways to do it. SEO is dying – you may call it a rumor or fake news, but the new “Penguin release” (the technical identity as given by Google) by Google proved it to be true and real. This new update or change in the algorithm was a good lesson to the ones who used inorganic techniques to get rankings as it identified and then dropped the rankings and listings of such companies. Now, Google has decided to focus and emphasize more on social media activities like tweets, likes, reddits, shares and Google’s very own 1+. Thus, more emphasis is given to comments, follows and the number of views too. 

This means that Google believes if you are connected with some entity on the web, it will be real and valuable to be noticed and known by the searchers too. It is now believed that if a digital marketing company is promoting any content of its client on social media, it has to be real and relevant with having very trivial chances of it being fake or unreal.
This makes it simple to understand that all efforts apart from designing, videoing and writing content which is relevant and original, are counterfeit and forged. 

What is the POA? 
It is simple and understood. Just invest in something which is real and relevant so that it generates the results that you estimated. To be a reputed and known digital marketing company update yourself with the latest trends and ensure to follow white hat techniques to get rankings.

Importance Of SEO In Creating A Website

This is a guest post and today our author is Vanessa, in this post she explains about the SEO expert is working. See How to become guest author in Spice Up Blogging.For any kind of online commerce, search engines are perhaps one of the most useful tools. Without search engines most websites would hardly be accessed. However, with online commerce augmenting, the race to appear topmost of search engine listings is implausible. Thus in today’s world, especially in cities every organization requires hiring a SEO expert with familiarity and high-end understanding in using these SEO techniques and practices at a niftier level to get the required outcomes for the website.

The SEO expert has their lobes stuck to the business channel. Due to this reason, these people are the first to recognize when there is an occurrence of change in search engine systems, and how these fluctuations could disturb the webpage’s optimization. A SEO expert is also the person who gets knowledge of the positive execution of fresh SEO strategies first. This sort of exquisite information may be gathered directly from it. Conversely, a non-expert would require hours of study and research before they get adequate and satisfactory fallouts.

Before beginning the optimization of your website, the SEO professional will assess the state of your current website. It is a piece of cake for them to recognize the zones of the website that require splurging, so that the probabilities of high search engine standings are indeed high.

A SEO expert comprehends that fulfilling SEO schemes is not a one-time mission. Therefore, the professional is willing to spend time evaluating reports and assessing prevailing SEO plans. The owner of a corporation is already loaded with his/her own accountabilities and has less time to disburse on search engine fallouts and charts.

The SEO expert is also aware of common schemes used for refining page ranking. Thus, they are aware of all there is to know about the usage of suitable keywords and expressions. They also outshine in the execution of supplementary SEO-friendly deeds such as article submission, etc.

Other such things like web advertisings, pay-per click supervision, documentation and practice of the better key phrases, press release optimization, and RSS Feed advertisings are also done efficiently by SEO specialists that you may appoint. A SEO professional is also knowledgeable in social networking. Thus, he can help you hitch the clout of social media.

To assist their clientele to overcome rivalry, SEO professionals also go through the SEO tactics applied by the competitors. They also have a fair impression of SEO optimization approaches like issuing beneficial web content and so on.

Thus, a specialized SEO expert can be employed either hourly or weekly or even on a monthly basis. The payments can be made according to the corresponding arrangement. This may not only help you save a lot of your time and money but also assets and resources.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Design And Its Features

This is a guest post and our author is scott Garcia, he explains why upgrade to windows 8 is necessary. See how to become guest author in spice up blogging. The Galaxy Tab lineup of Samsung is being really large – there is the Galaxy Tab 8.9, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, the Galaxy Tab 7.7, the Galaxy Tab, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, and now the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is less expensive than the previous versions and it runs Android 4.0. The price of this tablet is $249.99. Nook Tablets, Kindle Fire, and BlackBerry PlayBook are the real competitors of this product. Let’s find out more about the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.

It is much similar to the 7-inch Galaxy Tab. The back of the tablet is a matte grey plastic, and it is pretty comfortable to hold. The ports and buttons have been laid out much like the Galaxy Tab 7.7. On the right side there are power and volume rocker buttons. There are two stereo speakers and the headphone jack on the top. You will find a microSD card slot on the left side.

The 7-inch display with the resolution of 1024 x 600 is fine, but it is not a match for 1280 x 800 Super AMOLED Plus display. The bright screen of Tab 2 has great viewing angles, and it is very responsive. It is prone to fingerprints and glare. 

As it runs Android 4.0 you will get pleasant experience of utilizing the OS. It is now much easier to open and close apps, and scrolling has been improved significantly. Also some of the major apps have been improved. The browser zooms and pinches better. The TouchWiz UI skin performs very well. The quick-access menu has been expanded. A little bit of changes can be found in the keyboard. 

Though the tablet experience has been improved with the help of Ice Cream Sandwich, the problem associated with the lack of good Android apps remains the same. Some apps are increasing, but they are very limited. Some of the popular apps include Grand Theft Auto, Evernote, Dropbox, Amazon Kindle, ChatON, AllShare, Game Hub, and Media Hub. The benefit of using Dropbox on Tab 2 is that you will get free Dropbox storage of 50GB for 1 year. Peel is one of the best preinstalled apps. It is a visual TV guide which can even control your home theatre stack. 

We must admit that the camera of Tab 2 is not so good. There is no autofocus, which means you will get very unfocussed and blurry images when you shoot anything farther than four feet. Even the in-focus shots are noisy and soft. And the video quality is also dark, noisy and poor. 

Battery Life and Performance
The Tab 2 includes the 4,000mAh battery. During our test we found it lasted for 2 days with regular use. The Tab has been powered by the 1GHz dual-core TI processor and 1GB of RAM which is sufficient to run any tasks efficiently. 

Good things about Samsung Tab 2 7.0 include long battery life, light and thin, runs Android 4.0 and inexpensive. And the bad things include terrible cameras, lack of good tablet apps and poor displays.

Jump From Windows 7 To Windows 8 - Benefits Of Upgrading To Windows 8

This is a guest post and our author is charles, he explains why upgrade to windows 8 is necessary. See how to become guest author in spice up blogging. Its time to install Windows 8 on your PC! The Start up screen featuring Modern UI is what distinguishes Windows 8 from Windows 7. Well, this is not the end! Windows 8 OS has many other latest features to offer to you besides its revamped interface. Cloud service for account sync, novel ways of personalization of the desktop, multi-monitor settings and so on, are some of the primary enhancements of this operating system.

This recent invention of Microsoft’s operating system offers a set of new tools whose correspondent feature is not available in the Windows 7 OS. Let’s check out the features…

Revamped Multi-Monitoring Settings 
Microsoft has added a number of improved features in Windows 8 for enhancing the settings of multiple monitoring. With every display, you can enjoy different backgrounds and taskbars. You get all the new features in the traditional desktop. The Inside-edge detection enables you to have access to the Running Apps and Charms bar. Whereas in Windows 7, you can either get the displays or treat more than one monitor as one single display area.

Storage Spaces
This feature is an improvised version of the older Windows Home Server. With the help of this, you can manage the external as well as the internal storage drives like one huge drive known as the storage pool. The additional advantage of this feature is – all your data is duplicated in multiple drives in ‘storage pool’ for creating redundancy when there is single drive failure.

Picture Password
This is areal new thing for the new operating system. It’s really boring to use the conventional rule for password with alphabets and numbers and characters. Windows 8 brings an innovation in the password; it offers you the support for picture password. For creating a picture password, you have to select any of the photos from the image library and make three gestures on it by combining taps, straight lines and circles.

Automatic Change of Window Color
There is a new feature in Windows 8 for automatic adjustment of window color in traditional desktop to comply with the background image. For instance, suppose you have the picture of the sky, the taskbar and window changes to blue color. Again, in case you have image in brown hues, taskbar and windows will turn to brown. So, now you can beautify your desktop as you want!

Speedier Startup
The boot time in Windows 8 is much faster than Windows 7. Thanks to the latest hybrid system Microsoft has introduced in this new OS. In this new hybrid system, there are processes of hibernation and cold boots. The use of multiple cores with parallel to boot delivers less time in starting up of the operating system.
These and many more such advantages can be enjoyed with Windows 8 OS. Install this operating system and have a great time computing in a user-friendly interface! Once you start using Windows 8, you cannot use any other operating system. It’s a bet...

About The Author: Charles Hall is a computer expert. He is eager to use the new Windows version but before that he intended to collect all kinds of information regarding it. With Windows operating system support he is convinced of using the new OS.
