SEO The Game 3: Meta Dash

By | Content Marketing | No Comments

Play MetaDash: SEO The Game 3 and correctly set your meta tags in your HTML before Googlebot comes along.

NetVoucherCodes.co.uk launch their 3rd installment of the SEO games series. Following in the footsteps of Donkey Cutts and Chuckie Links, MetaDash: SEO the Game 3 aims to gamify the process of setting your index / no index meta tags before Googlebot arrives at your site. 

With the recent news that robots.txt is celebrating its 25th birthday and that Google is withdrawing support for it from September 2019, we thought it was time for another game! :) From September, you will now have to set your index / no index meta tags in your html, so you better get dashing!  You can read more about the Google changes here: https://www.seroundtable.com/google-noindex-in-robots-txt-dead-27824.html 

MetaDash, as per previous SEO games lets you choose your SEO Hero. You can select from Rand Fishkin, Danny Sullivan, Barry Schwartz, Marie Haynes or Will Reynolds. You then have to set the correct meta tags for each directory. They start with no settings, jump on the button once to set to no index and twice to set to index. Only the root directory should be set to index. You can leave the root grey, but you wont get as many points or have the chance to gain an end of level bonus.

Managing Director Steve Barnes who’s had a few plays of the game said “It’s actually quite addictive. There’s some strategy to it in setting the correct meta tags whilst waiting for the robots to arrive. Then you need to keep a close eye on when 2 are coming at once to a particular directory”.

“We hope our latest game raises some awareness before the Google changes come into play in September this year”.

Zxill gets Greenlit on Steam!

By | Gaming | No Comments

Zxill is the first title of our in-house indie development team Polyquest and will be published by ZX Digital. We’d like to say a huge thank you to everybody who voted for the game and we’re looking forward to announcing early access details in the coming months.

We asked Nick our games development manger what this means to him “I feel honoured that the community has given us the opportunity to bring Zxill to fans of the fantasy, adventure and RPG games I grew up with. The idea for Zxill has been something I have wanted to do for a long time, not just from a developers perspective but as a gamer I have wanted a game like this for years. It’s just great to hear that a lot of people out there feel the same way.”

In the mean time you can find out more about the game on Steam. Exciting times ahead!
