[quote="Rich":f1boqoiy]I think that a lot of people looking for a game creator would ask/post on a community they frequent, look for a comparison website or article outlining various solutions, or explore indie communities. A lot of our hits are referred from such means. Some users will type in things like 'game maker' and such, Game Maker itself has these keywords covered, which makes tapping into those searches very hard.
(Our hit breakdown shows 170 hits from people googling 'Construct' in the last week, up from 50 or so only a month ago in a week period)[/quote:f1boqoiy]
[quote="Rich":f1boqoiy]What can we do to increase rankings for things 'blind searchers' so to speak will type in?[/quote:f1boqoiy]
I know what to do - You must prepare the RIGHT CONTENT
[list=1:f1boqoiy]well written site[/list:o:f1boqoiy]
[list=2:f1boqoiy]Right titles. For example your current title is:
[code:f1boqoiy]<title>Scirra: Home of open-source game creator, Construct</title>[/code:f1boqoiy]
It's to descriptive. Description meta tag is for that.
Title you want to have must have less characters and words. that makes it stronger. For example.
[code:f1boqoiy]<title>Free Game Creator - Construct</title>[/code:f1boqoiy]
[list=3:f1boqoiy]Keywords/key frazes in right tags and in right places[/list:o:f1boqoiy]
[list=4:f1boqoiy]Right site names and good links[/list:o:f1boqoiy]
[list=5:f1boqoiy]And few other minor thinges but importand too[/list:o:f1boqoiy]
Oh and create sub-domain 'construct.scirra.com' or even better one with insted of construct you could use 'game-creator' or 'game-creation' or even ' game-maker'. Under these domains you would keep everything construct related. Under scirra.com you could keep only scirra related informations.
And there is more to know...
