Imagine this: You’re out and about for the day, maybe you go for a jog, then head out to run some errands, meet a friend for lunch and buy groceries. But halfway through your day, your phone dies. This happens to all of us at some point. Phone batteries just can’t seem to keep up with everyday use, especially for smartphones. You probably use your phone for scheduling, email, basic web browsing, music and maybe video in addition to the traditional tasks of calling and texting. Wouldn’t it be great if you could find a system that could charge your phone on the go and maybe make you a bit more environmentally friendly in the process?
SEO Moz’s 2011 edition of their Search Engine Ranking Factors documents highlights several new factors Google has begun using in search ranking. Some of the big changes from recent years include increased importance in domain-level brand metrics, page-level social metrics and domain-level keyword usage, in addition to a higher focus on content and relevancy. Other factors, like anchor text in external links and exact keyword match domains have decreased in effectiveness while cloaking, over-optimization and being linked from pages penalized by Google produce a negative response.
In recent years, the advent of mobile device applications (i.e. “apps”) has simplified nearly every aspect of living. Through said apps, one can now unlock their car, stream their favorite music, create an interactive grocery list, play a song on a virtual piano, and accept a credit card payment- all from their phone. It was only a matter of time before the mobile app platform technology was applied to help music festival attendees organize themselves and get the most of their $250 ticket.
