  • Yes. But I think Megatronx meant that you haven't used commas to separate keywords, what is a rule for "keywords" field.

  • I remember reading that essay as im from Finland too and if I remember right he had done some work with isometric engine in Construct?

    Of course kewords are not magical, and they doesn't even matter much thise days. Description has got bigger influance on the indexing. But 'good links' and right content obviuesly are the most importand.

    Link to this board and/or your Construct projects on other forums, in the form of a sig link or game announcement threads, etc.

    If you see any "Looking for game making software" threads out there, mention Construct.

    The more (reputable) links that Google can track back here, the higher the rank will get.

    Don't spam, though. Spam is bad. Just bring it up when it comes up.

    And for linking from the sites or blogs, use links that have good 'title' tag and should use right keywords we want to position scirra.com. For example

    <a id="game-engine" title="Free game creator" href="http://www.scirra.com/game-creator/construct.php">Game Creator</a>[/code:2uuuekq1]
    ( There has to be a '/game-creator/' folder made in the future, for the upcoming site. That's the SEO structure )
    
    And here are the templates you can copy/paste if you want
    [code:2uuuekq1]<a id="game-engine" title="Free game creator" href="http://www.scirra.com/">game creator</a>[/code:2uuuekq1]
    [code:2uuuekq1]<a id="game-maker" title="2d game engine" href="http://www.scirra.com/">Free game engine</a>[/code:2uuuekq1]
    [code:2uuuekq1]<a id="2d-game-creator" title="2d game creator" href="http://www.scirra.com/">2d game creator</a>[/code:2uuuekq1]
    
    It is importand to place the link at the begining or at the end of the post/paragraph, becasue that's where it has got the biggest streangth.
  • You're right, it does seem to be a rule. I hope the big search engines are smart enough to grab them anyway until the new design.

    BTW. Ash said that you'll will be happy 'with the static site still'. However your current site is in PHP. If you'll like my design, i'll do it in php anyway, because in the future it will very helpfull when you will want to change something in the navigation bar.

  • It's PHP, but I don't think we use PHP anywhere currently really. It'd be useful for includes though yeah.

  • ... It'd be useful for includes though yeah.

    Exacly. Including menu and footer it's 'must be'. I'm not shure about the content... is your server running with Apache?

  • Good product sells itself. It doesn't really need the aggressive marketing tricks; it is not a bad product after all.
