Keywords are the words that web surfers enter in search engines like Google, Yahoo! or Bing - with the probable intent of finding products to buy, useful information, news or things to entertain. You'll want to optimize your website for effective keywords that might bring you lots of targeted visitor traffic from the search engines.

Brainstorm broad terms that are related to your business, products and services. These words are going to build your keyword core that you will further use to create a list of keyword phrase combos to optimize your site for.

MMO Search 2014: Life as a New Pilot in EVE

On Danger Blog

I got a bit in to what makes EVE different from other more traditional MMO’s in my last post. In this post I plan to cover a bit more of how you actually play EVE and some of my initial impressions of the game. If you already know how to play EVE, most of this post won’t be that interesting to you I imagine (but do feel free to still read it). I won’t be going in to every detail about the game, but I hope to hit on some of what I consider the major points of interest. As I stated in the previous post EVE is in many ways a sandbox MMO where users are free, or certainly more free than other MMO’s, to play the way they wish. I’m certain that there are cool things you can do in EVE that I’m not even remotely aware of. Keep in mind that EVE is still a video game with limits and restrictions though, so you can’t do everything you ever dreamed of doing in space. But let’s start from the very beginning: being a brand new pilot in EVE.

EVE Character Creation Screen

In the beginning of EVE you start by creating your character (avatar), like in many other MMO’s. The character creation tool allows you to pick from four different factions, choose your family background within that faction, and gives tons of tools to alter your appearance. The character creation tool is quite robust in EVE, and you can adjust down to the fine facial details if you care to (and even your pose, eyebrow height, and smile for your game icon picture). In games I tend to pick the stock character models or hit random until I find something I like, but having all these options available is never a problem. The race you chose does confer certain bonuses to your ships (what types of weapons are best for instance), but most of the game is spent in a ship so the impact of your appearance is somewhat limited (aside from your in game icon).
