[Support] Guide to Fix Vanguard Disabling Mouse & Keyboard on Startup.

Im not affiliated in any way to Riot Games i'm just the guy who found a fix for this.
The Vanguard blocks your Mouse & Keyboard due to a driver called Interception driver, this is used for a lot of different programs from splitting keyboards into controllers to mouse accel. So to fix it all you need to do is
cd
then
cd "command line installer"
install-interception.exe /uninstall
Thanks to FaceIT AC team for this fix, it used to happen to me on their anticheat.

Introduction to Kalevala Casino

Tailored to meet the demands of the Finnish audience, Kalevala Casino is home to fast and safe transactions, which include several different banking methods. This brand, along with two more well-positioned in our directory, operates under the umbrella of affiliates which are specialized in delivering interesting promos.
Supplied by some of the most renowned content producers, this hub proudly displays multiple games. From freshly-baked titles to all-time favorite hits, the operator made sure to cover everything, so to be interesting to as a range of clients as possible.
The fact that their name…
…actually represents a 19th-century work of epic poetry from Karelian and Finnish oral folklore and mythology is already intriguing enough to inspire us to explore this brand thoroughly.
Stay with us to find out more about this entertainment facility which claims to be the right place for people from the Land of the Thousand Lakes.
Tip: The Standard Customer Due Diligence (CDD) will be applied when accumulated deposits reach 2000€ in a time span of 180 days.

Kalevala Casino Games

When we say BTG, SYNOT, Pragmatic Play, Evolution Gaming, Eyecon, Booming Games, we don’t have to elaborate a lot about immense quality hidden beneath all those names. And these are just some of the creative factories whose content can be found in Kalevala Casino’s library.
Which games can be found in their portfolio?
Slots and JPs: Book of Dead, Piggy Riches Megaways, Immortal Romance, Gemix, Vault of Anubis, Wheel of Wishes, Grand Gems, Multifly!, All-Star Knockout, Wild Krakatoa, Jewel Scarabs and many other releases.
Table Games: Caribbean Stud, Casino Hold’em, Red Dog, Texas Hold’em, etc.
You see…
…when we said “everything”, we meant within the limits of slot games, as other categories are either non-existent or equipped with a minimum selection. We haven’t discovered any Baccarat, BJ, Roulette, Video Poker, and all those player favorites which are usually available casinos-wide.
On another note, one can test the games in demo mode, prior to making deposits. Also, the lobby is neatly arranged, allowing punters to find the desired title quickly.

Kalevala Mobile Casino

Having a unique story inspired by epic poetry is the first step to draw customers’ attention- but how to keep them interested?
It’s far away from a complicated science…
…as it boils down to single detail- cross-platform optimization. And Kalevala Casino made sure not to miss it.
Wherever you are, whichever device or operating system you use, you will be able to browse this platform smoothly. Of course, provided that a loyal company of reliable internet connection is by your side as well.

Mobile Games

Thanks to a highly intuitive and easily adjustable interface, the ease of navigation will be the same as it is on desktop. The wealthy assortment of digital one-armed bandits will look equally simple to explore, allowing you to activate your favorite game while out and about.

Loyalty Program

Unfortunately, we have encountered no precise information related to any scheme with incentives, but we did discover the following statement:
“The maximum daily/weekly/monthly withdrawal amount depends on the payment method You have selected and on Your loyalty status.”
>> Play for Free Now <<
We won’t play any guessing games…
…that’s for sure, but at least it gives a hint that there may be some special incentives. However, what it takes to unlock them and which are the rules to follow is still unknown.
What compensates this lack is an introductory package, tied to the first three deposits. It depends on the amount of money one decides to place. Moreover, there’s a possibility to collect iron and gold coins while playing and when the meter is full, these credits can be used to purchase bonus spins or even real money.
“Before opening an account with Kalevalakasino, we ask that you kindly familiarise yourself with the Terms and Conditions below. Knowing the rules and agreeing with them ensures your casino experience is as smooth as possible.”
Quite a coincidence, isn’t it?
That’s EXACTLY what we ask you as well, not only for this specific brand but for any other which has caught your attention. Only a thorough understanding of all rules will minimize the possibility to end up in an unpleasant scenario, and most certainly maximize the chances to have a memorable experience.
Referring to their interest…
…in customizing services for Finnish clients, it’s interesting to mention that this jurisdiction pays special attention to gambling-related marketing content on TV and radio ads. Finland’s Police and Transport and Communications Agency, Traficom, are some of the institutions dealing with illegal ads prevention.

Conclusion

Remember the “umbrella” we mentioned at the beginning? Well, the other brands belonging to the same group include LuckyDino, CasinoJEFE, and Olaspill, of which the first two have received numerous positive comments from the community.
So, what about this brand, where does it stand?
As for the pluses, the versatility of slot games surely deserves high grades, and the registration package looks fine as well. A solid assortment of player protection methods is among the bright sides, showing that the venue does put efforts to create a safe environment.
There’s a decent number of banking options, such as Nordea, Aktia, Pop Pankki, Handelsbanken, etc., as stated-all enabling instant processing time.
However…
…some significant reinforcement in the form of more types of release would certainly be a nice addition to this Malta-licensed facility. More detailed information regarding the Loyalty scheme and better selection of promo packages would add more points as well.
Until those weak points are corrected…
…we could say that Kalevala Casino is an average brand, with plenty of room for improvement. Surely, there’s always a practice mode to take a closer look and decide whether what it has to offer is what you are looking for.

MY STORY (this will inspire aspiring entrepreneurs)

Hey guys,
I want to tell you guys about my story so that you guys keep pushing and going towards your goals and never give up. I'm not advertising or selling anything, I'm remaining anonymous, I just hope that someone finds something in this story for help and inspiration.
Anyway, I'm 34 now, I'm not from a rich family, I'm actually from an immigrant family, and I grew up in a pretty modest household.
I was messing around most of my youth. My parents sent me to a community college to study Engineering, and I wasn't studying very well. I was lazy, not really motivated, so anyway I had a pretty shitty GPA and 2 years later I ended up dropping out, it was an awful period of my life, but anyway... A bit later, a friend of mine got me a job at sea (like on the actual ship as an able-bodied sailor kind of thing). So I was working there up until I turned 27.
That sounds kind of dumb, I know, but it did bring the money to the table, and I would spend around 1 month in the US and then about 5-6 months at sea... Anyway, at the age of 27, I got really sick and tired of that life and I quit. I had absolutely no idea what to do and what goals to pursue.
I joined a local manufacturing company as a tech support person. That was my first office job.
Simultaneously, I kind of started considering going back to school, but 4-5 years seemed daunting. I decided to go to a so-called full-stack web development bootcamp, it's kind of like an accelerated program that teached you how to code within like 3-6 months. Found myself pretty good at it, I was enjoying it.
In contrast with most of my fellow student at the bootcamp, I had landed my first coding job even before I graduated that bootcamp, which was a major accomplishment for me. The company did like affiliate marketing/lead gen software, so I learned a lot about the industry and my skills increased.
Fast forward 2 years, I landed a new job, already almost as a senior developer. That was funny, because I was just a regular sailor some 3-4 years ago at that point. I never told anyone about it for some reason. I mean I never told colleagues. This next company also was doing similar kind of software... I learned a lot about the industry, and then after 1 year of working there, I decided to start building my own little app in my own time (while working for a company).
It took me around 1 month to finish a functional first version of the app, and then I started marketing it relentlessly. What I was using was cold email, cold calling, I ran a PPC campaign, I created a wordpress website to educate consumers about this little app, so I did literally all fronts.
At that stage, my life was pretty crazy, I would get like 4 hours of sleep per day or even less. That was very crazy.
BUT I DID FIND MY FIRST CLIENT AFTER ABOUT 3 WEEKS OF DOING ALL THIS.
I WAS SO GOD DAMN HAPPY! LITERALLY SOMEONE WOULD PAY A MONTHLY FEE FOR A LITTLE WEB APP BUILD BY A SAILOR PRETTY MUCH.
That however made me believe, I REALLY CAN DO IT. Anybody could. So I kept on doing that, just keeping on selling that first version and working my job simultaneously for about 4 months.
At that stage I had 9 paying clients, I had enough to just quit the job and focus on the business 100%.
So I kept running like crazy, advertising, tweaking code, maintaining instances of clients (like their directories on the server pretty much), again sleeping like 4 hours per day after quitting the job.
At that point, I understood that I can't just keep doing it alone... There's just no time. You can't NOT SLEEP at all. it's just impossible. So I hired 3 people at once and rented out some small office space...
That somehow. I don't know how, maybe because the people who I hired were BETTER THAN ME, I have no idea, but from that point on, our growth was crazy. My hired programmer said my code was absolutely terrible, he refactored it and made it nice, and added features, and the marketing person did marketing so much better than I did...
Now, this thing is still very much alive... We've been in business for over 4 years now... We have 1/2 of a floor of an office building in downtown LA now, it's like literally renting out like half of the floor, and it's absolutely insane. I do however know what made it happen. I kind of thought about it, because I know a lot of people just can't do it. I did it the first time I tried.... Let me share the points that I believe were the game changed.
  1. I JUST WOULDN'T STOP. LIKE IF THERE IS NO RESULT DAY AFTER DAY, I JUST TENACIOUSLY KEEP DOING THIS THING LIKE A GOD DAMNED RABBIT, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, CALLING AND EMAILING, AND JUST LIKE BEING SO EXCITED THAT I COULDN'T EVEN SLEEP EVEN THOUGH I WAS SLEEP DEPRIVED
  2. I JUST WOULDN'T GIVE UP, LIKE FOR SOME REASON, NO MATTER WHAT, NO MATTER HOW BAD IT IS, I JUST DID NOT GIVE UP, I DIDN't SAY 'NO IT'S NOT GONNA WORK, I JUST KEPT GOING UP AND UP AND UP', LIKE I WAS ALMOST IRRATIONAL
  3. HIGH ENERGY LEVEL, I LITERALLY DID LIKE 4 HOUR OF SLEEP, AND TO BE HONEST WITH YOU I STILL DON'T GET MORE THAN 6 HOURS OF SLEEP, AND I NEVER HAVE A DAY OFF, I NEVER EVER HAVE LIKE A COMPLETE DAY OFF LIKE EVER
So my advise just set a goal, and just say to yourself: I WON'T STOP, NO MATTER WHAT, I WILL JUST KEEP PUSHING LIKE A GOD DAMNED BULL, WHETHER ITS REJECTION, WHETHER YOU THINK WHAT YOU'RE DOING DOES NOT MAKE SENSE, JUST KEEP DOING IT, JUST DO IT EVEN CRAZIER AND HARDER... AND I Believe you will pull it off

6,000 Word guide on Local biz SEO + list of 2,190 websites that accept guest blog posts + 800 SEO terms mapped out on a HUGE infographic, + other SEO templates.

Reddit Intro
This is an intermediate SEO guide. It's not super vague, but I'm also not trying to go into great detail on the more advanced techniques used for highly competitive keywords. The only thing really missing here is more information on Silos and the super basic shit you can find LITERALLY anywhere.
My goal with this guide was to provide SEO guidance for any local business as it grows and evolves. For example, you don't need a full-blown SEO strategy when you've been in business for 4 days--you can, however, benefit from having a GMB listing or single-page website.
If you want basic stuff:
Ahrefs blog post on local SEO
Moz Local SEO checklist
How is it laid out?
It starts with the most important stuff someone should be doing right from the start. Then it grows and expands with the needs of the business. It also tells you the exact pages you need to link to and where you should put the keywords to "optimize" them.
Quick note:
For the most part, any SEO optimization that is not located in this guide can easily be done through the Yoast SEO plugins. They don't give the greatest advice, but it's better than paying someone $1,300/mo to do everything Yoast tells them to do.

Intro

This is the ultimate guide to building and ranking a website. We don’t just want a website to rank though, we want to turn it into a lean, mean, lead-generating machine. My personal philosophy around business and marketing is to pick the low hanging fruit first. I start every effort as close to the sale as possible and build processes to take advantage of as many sales as I can as I move further away from the sale. What I mean, is that I always try to focus on the smallest efforts with the biggest results.
I have a feeling this is still going to confuse a lot of people. Let me give you an example: my cabinet painting company’s content.
Most people in the small business space are focusing on writing how-to guides because they think this makes them seem like an “authority” in their industry, I create case-studies. I take before and after pictures and write little stories about the projects. When someone is looking for a how-to guide, they’re looking to do it themselves. That’s not the type of traffic I want to bring to my website. That type of traffic isn’t going to convert for months--maybe even years!
Someone looking to see if you’re the right fit, on the other hand, they’re going to be looking for proof that you can do what they’re looking for. They want to see that you’re in the trenches providing the services that they’re wanting to eventually purchase. They want proof. This is why I write little case-studies about our projects and not “how to paint cabinet guides”. This isn’t the only reason I do this either. Think about it. How often do you go to a small business website to read a how-to guide? Never. You always big the big, well-known, brands with huge nationally/internationally ranking websites that you could never compete against.
So, why in the world would you want to spend time and effort making something that no one will read? That’s the question every business owner should be asking themselves. Now, I don’t want to say that it’s a totally useless effort. I’m mostly just pointing out that it shouldn’t be your main focus until the time comes when you need to make that type of content. Always start with the sale, and move backward to create a process that helps turn traffic into sales.
Now, let the fun begin.

Content

Intro

I break all content into 3 different types: conversion, engagement, and trust. Conversion content, focuses on the immediate goal of turning visitors into sales. Engagement content focuses on drawing the customer in--to read more, click more, and dive deeper into the website. Trust content focuses on showing that you’re a credible resource of information, products, and services.
Content is a huge part of your SEO as well as your ability to turn traffic into sales. Now, the problem is that these 3 content types all interweave between themselves to support and improve each other’s ability to convert website visitors. Many businesses become confused and unsure about where their priorities are when it comes to website content. They read lots of guides online, but most of those guides cater to affiliate marketers or bigger companies that have a much bigger audience.
SEO will bring traffic to your website, but it’s not an automatic sales machine. People don’t just instantly buy whatever you tell them to buy at the drop of a hat. You need to create processes that gently lead them down the path that you would like them to take. This path consists of several different stages, but those stages aren’t definite. Some people move to one stage at one moment in their decision-making process, then move right back to the very beginning.
This part of the guide will go over those processes that help convert traffic. However you will find that throughout the entire guide I will be explaining how to bring traffic to the website so it gets converted.

Google My Business

GMB comes first

Your Google My Business listing is the single most important web asset that you can own as a small business owner. This should always come first. Before you have a website, before you advertise, before ANYTHING. Why? Because it contains all of the most important content elements in a 3rd party system (more trustworthy) AND it brings visitors to your business.
I would say that the biggest reason for getting this set up first though, is because you want to start getting reviews as quickly as possible. Your reviews are a huge part of being able to convert traffic into sales. Typically anyone that finds you through online advertising via Facebook or Google ads, will go look at your reviews and website before contacting you. I call this the background check. People want to feel like they’re making the right decision. They don’t want a bad experience and they don’t want to be scammed.
It’s also probably one of the single most important factors in local business SEO. Without your GMB listing, it will be very difficult--dare I say--impossible to rank without it. I guess it’s not impossible, but it would really fucking stupid not to have it.
There’s already plenty of guides out there on how to set up your Google my business listing, so I’m not going to go into very much detail on the basics. What I will say, is that you need a cheap option for reminding people to give you a review. SMS (texting) has been proven to have an increased ability to get people to write reviews. The problem with this is that a lot of review or public relations software services that provide text reminders cost a lot of fucking money. Instead of paying $400/mo on Podio or Birdeye, use Hopfu.

Home Page

Home page comes second

EVERY business needs a homepage, and you can get away with a lot more than most marketers are willing to admit--with a single-page website. So don’t ever think it’s an all-or-nothing type of situation. This simply isn’t true.
This also doesn’t mean that you should forever have a single-page website. As you start growing, so should the number of pages on your website. If you don’t have the time or money to build a formal website, just stick to this. I would say that it’s good to have a website though. You shouldn’t try and skimp on this. If you want to be seen as credible and charge higher prices than your competitors, a website will go a long way in making this happen.
Here is everything you should have on your website to not only improve your ability to convert traffic but to start a good foundation for your SEO efforts.
Here’s a list of everything you need. Below you will find descriptions.
-Condensed information
-Core offer
-Small contact form
-Sticky phone #
-Clear USP
-Logos/badges
-Real images
-No more than 3 reviews
-3 step process
Use this image for reference:
What is condensed information?
What do I mean by this? I mean that you should really only have blocks of text with no more than 100 words. Brief descriptions or explanations of anything that’s important for people to know. People have short attention spans and despite what everyone says, content length does not dictate a website’s ability to rank on Google. Context is key in ranking and too much content CAN destroy your ability to rank for the specific keywords you’re trying to rank. Not only that, but no one fucking cares and won’t read any of it. Remember the goal is to convert--not just have people visit your website. If you create small bite size chunks of information, then people are more likely to actually read the information. If they’re reading, then they’re engaging. If they’re engaging, they’re more likely to convert. Keep it stupid fucking simple. Make sure you have condensed information about the services you offer on this page.
-100 word chunks of information.
-Have a hierarchical tag (H2 or H3) on top of the information chunk with a topical keyword.
-If you have more than 1 page, link to the other pages that the info chunks talk about.
-1 link per information chunk.
-Copywriting is not an informational chunk.
What is a Core offer?
Your core offer is the offer someone accepts right before a sale. If you’re a smaller business, keep it to this. As your business and website grow, you can add a supplementary offer for anyone that isn’t quite ready to take the leap on your core offer. For most service businesses, your core offer is consultation/assessment/audit/etc. For a product based business, this is a “visit us”, or a “see our products” page, if they can make purchases online.
-Offer closest to the sale. Ie. Estimate, consultation, visit us, etc.
-If a bigger website/business, then create an offer for traffic that isn’t ready for the core offer. Ie. ebook, newsletter sign up, etc.
What is a sticky phone #?
A sticky phone number is a sticky bar that has your phone number on it. A sticky bar is a very small banner that follows the user as they scroll up or down on a website. Phone calls are proven to sell (literally--it’s been proven) 1000% better than forms. So getting phone calls should always be top of mind. It’s even better if you have a cute little picture of yourself next to the phone number with your name. This makes them feel more comfortable by thinking they know who they’re calling when they dial that number. Also, local phone numbers are TWICE as likely to convert than 800 numbers. It also goes without saying that you should make your phone numbers clickable on mobile. This is done with a tel:123-456-7890 link.
-Sticky bar with phone #.
-Put a cute little picture of yourself with your name next to the phone number.
-Local phone numbers convert better.
-Make your phone numbers clickable on mobile.
What is a small contact form?
For the love of all things holy, quit making your contact form super fucking difficult to fill out. You don’t need people’s zip codes, street addresses, blood types, or their mother’s maiden name. If you’re using Neuro-linguistic programming or compliance psychology to improve your conversion rate with a multi-step form, then you can start with a less threatening ask and end with their contact information. Compliance psychology has seen increased conversions of up to 76%, this however does not mean that your small business will benefit that much. The idea behind compliance psychology is if you can get someone to take small actions, they’re increasingly more likely to take big actions. If you want a multi-step form, you can use Leadformly or Jotform.
-Keep it super fucking simple. Name, number, email--nothing else.
-You can increase conversions with multi-step form with less threatening questions to qualify traffic before you get to the core ask (contact info).
What is a unique selling point (USP)?
You should always try and have a unique selling point, but when you’re a small business that isn’t making innovative wakes in your industry--this can be pretty fucking difficult. You can usually find a unique selling point by learning about your target audience. You can read good/bad reviews and learn what your target audience likes/dislikes, then take it to the fucking extreme. Do they complain about a project taking too long? Offer the “Holy hell done in just one hour” package. A company by the name WOW-1-day painting did this. Not everyone is that creative or capable of creating a unique selling point though. So what do you do if you’re one the unlucky majority? Just clearly state what you do or how you benefit others. Best place to do this is the headline.
-Can you come up with a usp? Put it in the headline.
-Not sure if you can? Read reviews of likes/dislikes, then take it to the fucking extreme.
-Least creative person in existence? Benefit or “We do X” in your headline.
What are Logos/badges?
Logos and badges are used for social proof. Social proof is used to build trust and credibility. It shows people you’re trusted by other people and companies, so you should be worthy of your traffic’s trust. The more credible your logos and badges, the better. Use Facebook and Google reviews over Homeadvisor’s, because they’re more credible. However, if you have a Homeadvisor or Upcity badge that shows how awesome you are, then use that too. If you’re a business to business company, then use the companies you’ve worked with. If you’re not solely business to business but offer commercial services, then add the logos of the businesses that you’ve helped on your commercial service page.
-Review badges/logos for social proof.
-Use awards/badges when you can.
-The more credible, the more betterer.
Why shouldn’t you use stock images?
Don’t sacrifice your looks for your ability to convert. Stock images do not promote trust, in fact they do quite the opposite--ESPECIALLY for local businesses. You want to be real and tangible, not fake and unreal. There’s often this saying that many marketers use, “ugly websites convert”. It’s true to a certain point. Huge businesses have nice looking websites and they convert really fucking well. There shouldn’t be any question that a good looking website can convert. BUT they can look good and still be real/tangible. If you want stock images, go hire a photographer and take real photos of yourself and your store. If not, do the best you can to make it look good and still use real photos. Real photos might look ugly, but they convert.
-You want to instill trust. Stock images instill distrust.
-You can still have a good looking website with real photos.
-Ugly real photos will still convert better than good looking stock images.
Why only 3 reviews?
Because people don’t trust narcissists. The more you talk yourself up, the less people will believe you. It’s well known that businesses buy fake reviews. The better it makes you sound, the less people are going to believe it because they think it’s fake. Use clear and concise reviews that preferably talk about your unique selling points or the benefits that you offer people. If you’re advertising, it’s even better if you can get reviews that specifically talk about your core offer. Also, use real people images, not that fake stock image shit. That’s the biggest way to turn people off after having read your awesome review.
-Less is more.
-The more it’s tailored to your audience or offer, the better.
-DON’T USE STOCK IMAGES
What is a 3 step process?
3 step process, uses iconography to explain your process moving forward. The less mystery that people have to experience the more comfortable they feel taking action. If you have a 3 step process for your core offer or for your service, the better people will feel about taking you up on the offer or buying your service. This follows Miller’s law. I don’t want to go into too much detail, but less is more. Keep the steps concise.

-Your service process, ordering process, core offer process, etc.
-Less mystery = more confidence
-More confidence = higher conversion.

Product or service pages

Product or service pages come 3rd.

As your company grows and expands, you need to grow your website. Product or service pages are normally for engagement content. They answer many of the questions that your website traffic has about, well, your products or services. This is not true for any e-commerce businesses, but this guide isn’t for e-commerce--it’s for local businesses. Again, this is why so many business owners get confused. There’s so much information out there for e-commerce and affiliate marketing, but nothing for the local biz.
Your product or service pages should be organized under a /services/ or /products/ parent page. If you don’t know how to do this--Google it. You also shouldn’t have any more than 3-4 core services. Too many times do I see local businesses put every single possible service in the navigation and that’s literally the dumbest thing you can do. There’s a little something called decision fatigue. This is why landing pages don’t have navigation and they only have one offer, instead of many offers. It’s also why salesmen limit the amount of options they give you by saying things like, “are you available this afternoon or evening?”.
It works.
It also works for SEO. Too many stupid supplementary services confuses Google and can causes it to choose the wrong things to rank. Instead, you should have supplementary services under their closest related core service. What exactly do I mean by this? Okay let’s do an example. Let’s say you’re a painter. If you’re doing it wrong, your service pages will look like this:
Services
-Door painting
-Interior painting
-Face painting
-Murals
-Wall painting
-Metal trim painting
-kitchen painting
-Fence painting
Your URLs for sake of explanation will look like this: Website.com/services/face-painting
Instead of doing that, do this:
Services
-Interior painting (h1)
--Doors (h2)
--Kitchens (h2)
--Indoor Murals (h2)
-Exterior painting (h1)
--Fence (h2)
--Metal trim (h2)
The reason this works is it adds more context to your core services and helps Google to understand what you offer. It’s also better for the customer experience. You can add small descriptions for each supplementary service with before and after pictures. You can also compare and contrast the supplementary services, level offers (good, better, best qualities), FAQs, etc.
Your /Services/ parent page should have descriptions of your core services, FAQs, and all the other important stuff that your customers need to know.
Your product and services pages are also a really good opportunity to add some story-telling and branding to your website for added kick of conversion probability. Give people an inside look of your shop and show pictures of you performing the services or making the products.

This is the description that shows up in search results under your SEO title. Keep the keyword to the left as possible. Can’t think of a good description? “Looking for a {Descriptor} {Service}? {Unique selling points/benefits}”
Takeaways
-AGAIN keep everything simple.
-Less is more.
-Write content that helps them make a decision. FAQs, Comparisons, Before/Afters, case studies, etc...
-Nothing shady with a clear ulterior motive like, “why you need to hire a X”. That’s fucking stupid and no one believes you.
-Link to relevant information. Pricing, portfolios, and service areas/locations are relevant to your product or service.

Service area/location pages

Service area/location pages are 4th

This is when you start doing SEO. Going to keep this super simple. Do NOT put your service area/location pages under a parent page, unless you’re in multiple states/countries.
Just do this: website.com/city/
Don’t be a trasy wanna-be SEO expert and use: website.com/service-in-city/
Content:
Typically these are going to be like your homepage, but they need to double down on material that converts. These pages SHOULD be attracting people that are the most likely to convert, therefore, you should treat them as such.
-Core CTA
-USP
-Before/After
-Real photos of real people
-Skimmable service points (that link to service pages)
-Logos/badges
-3 step process
-3 reviews
The big thing here is you should try and tailor everything to that specific city as much as possible. Use pictures you took in that city, use advertising copy that relates to that city’s audience more than others, etc…
A lot of people think the content can’t be the same between the city pages. That’s a fucking lie. You can just switch out the city and you’re good. Not recommended, but it’s not going to kill your SEO. In fact, all of my city pages have the same exact meta description, content, anchor-text, keywords, etc-- and they’re all on the first page. I even changed things up on 2 pages, just to see if there would be a difference. NOPE. No difference in ranking AT ALL. In fact, there’s a lot of myths in SEO and I’ll cover some of them later.

About Us page

About Us comes fifth.

Your About Us page really only supplements everything that we’ve covered up until this point. If you have all the other stuff and don’t have this page, you’ll do just fine. The same goes for only having another page’s preceding page if you’re a smaller business. Again, as the business grows, then you should add more to improve your ability to convert. The bigger you are, the more the smaller nuance stuff is going to matter. The smaller you are, the less effect it will have.
Your about us should have the following:
-Our team with pics and bios
-Credentials with PDF link to your proof of license, insurance, and/or certifications. No one does this, they just say they have it--this will set you apart.
-Company story (what inspired you to run the business)
-Company Mission (why you continue to run the business)
Why is About Us important?
The about us section is important because of a little psychological phenomenon called familiarity or tribalism. People who feel like they know you, tend to like or approve of you. They’re less likely to discredit you, which is why so many parents have a hard time believing their kids turned into criminals. If they’re less likely to try and discredit you and they like you, they will buy from you. Especially if you have some kick ass content on your About page.
I’d quickly like to address hypocrisy
Don’t be a fucking hypocrite when you’re writing your mission statement. If you aren’t about customer service, serving people, making the world better--don’t lie about it. It’s only going to hurt your brand. If you’re really that much of an asshole that this stuff doesn’t actually apply to you, then spin it differently--just be honest.
Easy to follow framework for a mission statement
A lot of people know this idea, but haven’t read the book. This is Simon Sinek’s company mission framework. Start with why (your core moral/value). Next, explain how you benefit your customers. Finally, end with what you do.
Here’s an example:
I believe most content sucks ass and I want to change that. I’m not a great writer, but I can still do this by going into great detail AND explaining why you should do the things I’m telling you to do. Above all else, I’m just a badass content marketer.
How to write your business’ story?
If you want to go all out, then do this: start with your hero (you) going on a journey, that finds a guide, faces a big decision, then triumphs over evil by doing good. You don’t necessarily need to do this, but it definitely won’t hurt if you do.
Here’s an example:
I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur, but didn’t have the confidence to really go through with it (relatable hero on a journey). One day came across an opportunity like no other--my friend was selling his business (the guide)! I bought it from him in hopes of getting my feet wet in the business world. It was a steep learning curve to say the least and I faced a lot of adversity like quitting my job without a single dollar in my savings account (big decision). In the end, despite all my obstacles, I’m here today. The owner of a wonderful business that I can call my own.
It’s even better if you can really make pain palpable.
Why you should use your real credentials
Don’t just say you’re licensed, bonded, and insured. Whip it out and slam it on the table. Show them that you actually are. Not a lot of people will even look at this stuff, but anyone that does will be impressed. You’re different, you’re real, you have nothing to hide. With proof comes confidence and with confidence comes spending. Upload the PDFs to your websites media storage, then link from the about us page to your certificates and licenses.

Takeaways
-Keep it real.
-Keep it short, but take them for a wild ride.
-Start with your why, explain how you benefit the customer, end with your what.
-Tell your story like a fucking boss.

Blog

Blog comes last

Your blog is for SEO. However, you can also use it for case studies and other content that affects SEO less, but converts more. You should definitely focus on the content that converts more when you’re first starting out. As you’re building your business and expanding your reach, maxing out your other marketing channels and moving into the SEO space, then you can start building other content that builds your topic relevance. No one is going to write your how-to guides if you’re a local business. Even if you’re a B2B business like a web designer or whatever, what ends up happening is you attract business owners that want to do everything themselves or will let you do all the hard work, then fire you.
Silo-ing
The architecture of your website is super important for bigger businesses, but as a small business owner, you probably hear how imperative it is for you to do the same. The thing is that the more information your website has, the more you need to put into files and categorize it in order for Google to make a quick understanding of what your website is all about. The smaller the website and the more niche it is, the less important this becomes. However, we’re still going to go over proper silo-ing.
The silo set up
The smaller the business, the smaller the silo--which is good for you! First, you’re going to make categories out of your core products or services. Then, you want to make subcategories with your supplemental services and other related topics. You should have at least 5 posts for every category or sub-category, so make it count.
Example:
Smaller Site example:
Category: /Interior-painting/
Blog Post: /kitchen-painting-guide/
Link: website.com/interior-painting/kitchen-painting-guide/
Bigger Site example:
Category: /Residential-painting/
Subcategory: /Interio
Blog Post: /kitchen-painting-guide/
link: website.com/residential-painting/interiokitchen-painting-guide/
Don’t do this:
Category: /guides/
Sub-category: /how-to/
Why shouldn’t I do that??
You don’t want to use words that are too broad and aren’t immediately relevant to your main category topics. Having the main category as a random, not immediately relevant, the keyword will throw Google for a curveball and tank your rankings. Basically any main category you make tells google that your website is about that category. So if you have Interior painting and exterior painting categories, that tells Google that you have a local painting business. If your main category is "guides", then that tells Google that your website is about guides. But which guides? How to make margaritas? How to make guides?
It's better if you have the main category as /painting/ then have /guides/ as a subcategory, but it's even better to use a word that's more relevant to the topic such as interior painting or exterior painting.
If you’re an affiliate website, then you would turn a page into a category page and add it to your head navigation. For example: /monitors/gaming/best-gaming-monitors-review
Physical silo
When you separate words into folders /like/this/ it's called a physical silo. It's not enough to just tag your posts with categories. You need to put them into folders by going in and adding the categories into the perma-link.
Internal linking:
-Link categories to subcategories
-Link subcategories to individual blog posts.
-Link where applicable.

Dispelling a few SEO myths right of the bat

SEO is full of myths. I think this is because people watch like 3 youtube videos and become experts in their fields. It really is that bad. The other reason for this is people who are actually pretty good at what they do--affiliate marketers/black hat SEOs. Black hatters are people who try to manipulate Google to try and rank with little to no effort. Google is always trying to get rid of them, so black hatters come up with all kinds of ridiculous rules that they think apply to SEO.
Speed optimization
It's seriously not as important as all these nerds make it seem. Divi theme is notoriously hated by SEOs because it's slow. Jokes on them, because websites built with Divi still out-rank them. One of the world's biggest advertising agencies, Strawberry Frog, uses it--as well as many other large companies. Just cache your page with WP Rocket and optimize images with Imagify.
That's literally like 99% of speed optimization. The other stuff doesn't do anything. Google only uses your 'time to first paint' as the only speed metric used in its algorithm. I've literally halved my speed and waited a couple of months of not touching NO INCREASE IN RANKING.
Natural/Diversity
The word ‘natural’ is one of the most overused terms in SEO. So is ‘diversity’. Google is a series of algorithms. It’s not some human closely looking for ‘natural’ links. It would need a really sophisticated algorithm to determine what is and isn’t natural. The hilarious thing is, what most SEO’s call ‘natural’ is a million miles from what naturally really is.
Anchor Text
For starters, diversity is not natural. Neither are exact anchors, LSI anchors and certainly not anchors like “click here”. Legitimate sites have an overwhelming number of brand anchors, followed by url, with a few lsi mixed in. When have you ever been reading a blog post, and you see a link to an external site as “click here”? Or “visit this”? “Click here” is a CTA on sales pages. Not an anchor for external pages.
The only time you’ll see diversity, is where there’s been SEOs at work.
Natural Link Profile
The next thing is, there is NO such thing as “a natural link profile”. What’s natural for a news site, is not natural for a local plumbing business, or a forum, or a blog. So saying you need comments, and nofollow this and that to diversify and look natural is gross over-thinking.
Every type of site is different. Natural links for blogs will include comments. Although these aren’t “natural”, as such, they’re “natural” in that the blog owner isn’t trying to get backlinks by commenting, but rather build their brand.
Basically, there is no overall “natural” link profile. The closest thing you’ll find to natural is that most big sites have 50 to 90% brand/url anchors. Usually brand is the dominant one, but sometimes url.
Google would have to build some sort of topic/site based link profile heuristics and try to determine what’s natural for say “blogs about insurance”, and “forums about insurance”, then “insurance companies”. Then the problem is how does it get the seed lists for all those categories? What if it starts with seeds that had SEOs working on them?
Any SEOs want to argue with me? Argue with Ahrefs instead.
How Google REALLY Works
People grossly over-complicate SEO and what Google is capable of. In a small test environment some interesting things can be achieved, but to roll out such sophisticated algorithms worldwide on their index would be chaos. Look at how much trouble they had with penguin and panda. It’s taken them years to improve, and panda/penguin aren’t that complex.
Google only looks for simple triggers. 1000 new backlinks a day on a fresh site? 80% exact anchors? Penalized.. Extreme cases of things.
The SEO industry is full of hogwash. While the SEOs who spread this ideology have no hidden agendas, they’ve been brainwashed by the industry into thinking all this crap needs to be done. It doesn’t. It’s all crap.

What DOES Work (the only backlinks you need)

Want to know what works? Contextual do-follow backlinks from relevant, powerful pages. You could build 100’s of links, all contextual do-follow, 100% do-follow, no comments, no social, no directory, no article marketing, none of that shit. You’ll rank.
As for anchors. Exact match keywords aren’t needed. Why? Contextual backlinks. Context. Google knows what the page is about. Want to rank for “best hamster wheels”? Do a brand link from an article entitled “Best Hamster Wheels”. I’ve tested this. I’ve seen jumps from page 9 to page 3 from 1 brand link from an expired site. Which keyword went up the most? The one in the title of the article with the brand link.
Want to rank on google? Just create contextual do-follow brand links from articles targeted to the keywords you want to rank for.
The other thing you’ll need as a small business are local listings/citations. You can get these from websites like bright local or Yext.
The truth is. If everyone knew this then all the SEO sellers providing big complicated services with a billion tiers and supreme ultimate diversification would go out of business.
Ranking is simple, but it’s not easy.

Rockstar Games Launcher Indicating "The Rockstar Games Launcher failed to initialize!"


Hi. I started the Rockstar Games Launcher yesterday and it didn't work, stating "The Rockstar Games Launcher failed to initialize!". I've tried everything, reinstalling different states of the launcher, deleting all affiliated folders and restarting, uninstalling GTA V (which kept all game files but made it marked as uninstalled oddly) but it doesn't work. Im really starting to lose hope and patience here. Please help
Specs: GTX 1060 6gb, 16gm RAM, i7 6700hq and 256gb SSD and 1tb HDD, its a portable OMEN HP
With it here are my prelauncher.log and launcher.log

Streaming industry news and highlights - week of May 4 2020

2020 is THE year for live-streaming, and this is THE 183rd edition of The Roundup! We’ve got short summaries of the top stories to get your week started just right, with links to the full stories for you completionists over on the main page.
Before we dive in, The Roundup is coming to podcast form beginning with this edition. Starting Tuesday (if all goes well), you’ll be able to consume The Roundup in whatever form suits you best. Just check your preferred podcast app for "The StreamKick Podcast" later this week. 👍
Stream Hatchet’s Q1 industry report dropped this week and it confirmed what we all kinda knew was the case - 2020 is live-streaming’s breakout year. Content consumption is up 35% YoY and Facebook may be the next streaming juggernaut if it’s growth trajectory continues. Twitch isn’t wasting the opportunity either, as it continues to roll out enhancements to the platform. On the content front, Soundcloud is launching a Twitch channel as more musicians turn to streaming to make ends meet, and Twitch loyalists can expect to see reality programming in their feeds later this year. Let’s get to it! 👇
Reality programming reportedly in the works at Twitch
TL;DR - Twitch is reportedly working on producing a collection of “unscripted” programming that may take the form of game shows, dating shows, talk shows, and sports and music content. According to the report, Twitch is planning to spend anywhere from $50,000 - $250,000 per week on the endeavor, equating to about 4 - 10 hours of content. Also in the report, Twitch specifically disqualified escape room content. Whatever form these new shows will take, viewers can expect to see them air about 2 - 3 times weekly.
Watch Parties earns its own dedicated Twitch directory
TL;DR - Watch Parties are a “social viewing experience” on Twitch in which streamers can broadcast certain titles from the Amazon Prime Video catalog to their audiences. That feature isn’t super new, but it didn’t previously have its own directory on the platform. This week that changed, meaning all Twitch Partners, Affiliates, and US viewers have an easier way to share the Watch Parties experience. And Twitch has made it easy for streamers by including a picture-in-picture feature that puts the video front and center, while keeping the streamer present for audience interaction.
Twitch begins rolling out upgrade to Channel pages
TL;DR - Twitch announced last year it would show some love to its much neglected Channel pages for streamers. Now the first round of those updates is going live over the next several weeks. The enhancements include making streamers’ avatars and hero images more noticeable, and the inclusion of a channel trailer. Streamers will be notified via email about the update as it’s gradually deployed.
YouTube locks in PewDiePie with exclusive live-streaming arrangement
TL;DR - YouTube made the move this week to secure its number one individual content creator along with his 104M subscribers. While details are scarce (they usually are), what we know is that PewDiePie will live-stream exclusively on YouTube - the current home for his pre-recorded video content which has amassed more than 25B views since 2010. It was roughly a year ago that Pewds signed a similar deal with streaming platform DLive, where he acquired more than 820K followers in record time.
Latest Q1 industry report hints 2020 could be live-streaming’s breakout year
TL;DR - Stream Hatchet’s Q1 streaming industry report dropped this week, adding some concrete insights to just how much the industry has benefited from the COVID-19 pandemic. In the quarter, nearly 5B hours of live content was consumed - up 35% versus the same time the year prior. Weekly viewers were up about 70%, with the bulk of that growth occurring as the stay-at-home orders were extended over the past several weeks. Twitch managed to capture 50% of overall viewership, but Facebook made major strides - growing viewership by an incredible 900% in the same period. Two of the most impactful events during the time were the beta release of VALORANT and Travis Scott’s Fortnite concert.
Soundcloud announces new Twitch series aimed at helping musicians grow
TL;DR - Soundcloud is leveling up its involvement with Twitch, announcing this week it would be launching an official Twitch channel. Billed as a “home for all artists, creatives, and listeners”, the channel will feature four different, themed shows airing at scheduled intervals either weekly or bi-weekly. Studio Sessions with Soulection will surface hidden talent available on Soundcloud and give aspiring artists an opportunity for a shoutout. Fresh Pressed will cover new music coming to the platform. Cloud Bar will focus on issues in the industry that affect today’s artists. And Fast Track will challenge artists to create a beat in 60 minutes, which will then be made available for other artists to incorporate into their work.
