Around 8 years ago, I was doing some research for my monthly college assignment, sitting in an Internet cafe working on an old computer with an awful Internet speed, wondering who on earth is so dumb to put all that information on the Internet for free. I mean if it takes me hours to note them down, it might have taken them days to put that up. Anyways, fast forward to 2012 when I became that dumb person to put all the information for free and now I get the irony. I am a food blogger, who researches and prepares recipes, take photos while cooking, then edit those photos and publish them. And then go share it with the world. Image Credit: kevineats.com Its heck of a job but I love it. I love cooking recipes and getting appreciation for it. And my blog helps me in getting that. Plus I make money while doing all that because I get a fair amount of traffic. But it was not always like that. For the good part of 2012, I skipped the last and the most important task of sharing my recipe … [Read more...] about Not Blessed by Google, Still getting 150k Monthly Visitors on my Blog.
SEO is a very big, deep sea. To fully understand SEO, we should know some basic SEO terms. Crawling and indexing are two such terms. If you have been in the web world for a while, you’ve at least heard the words: Google Crawling and Indexing. These are the two terms upon which the entire web world depends.

You know one reason (or perhaps the primary reason) why people prefer an iPhone over Android is that you get the best quality hardware and software from Apple with apps like Siri, iMessage, FaceTime, etc. that’s not available for Android. That’s not all! You also get the first-class versions of all official apps by various vendors. As you probably know few apps by Google work better on iOS than Android. When Google released Maps for iOS, several sources claimed that Google Maps for iOS is better than Android version. And this report suggests that Google’s apps run better on the iPad mini than the Nexus 7. So it really means that you don’t have to buy an Android phone for the sake of apps. When you buy a phone you’re really investing in its ecosystem. And that’s the primary reason why people say they’re switching to Android or iOS instead of mentioning the brand name of a phone. Today, I’m going to feature an app for each default app by … [Read more...] about 30 Great iPhone Apps By Apple And Its Even Greater Alternatives
