    @Oli Hi Oli thanks for the clarification.

    Completely understand what's happening - I analyse tech investments as a full time job so understand how search rankings work, and that all those writers don't pay for themselves!

    If you want to keep it under the radar maybe find some way to keep reposts off of the front page "recently popular" ranking also (although I guess the fact its gets onto there shows your SEO is doing something right).

    Have to say I do feel a little shortchanged when I do click through a results hoping for some spanking new EG content (but I guess that's a backhanded complement), so do be careful how much you do this suspect there may be some inadvertent downsides.

    And keep on publishing the good stuff!

    Jonathan

    @Your-Mother Personally I prefer Jonathan Pryce. Particularly in Miss Saigon, although that may be somewhat controversial.

    @Your-Mother Meh. How come so many non-Danish dudes keep on playing Hamlet?

    Why are you clicking through on a Nvidia 1060 article multiple times? Are you in the market for a GPU? Or do you just click on and read literally every word EG publishes?

    There are certainly some forum users who seem to recycle the same old posts.

    Are the goalkeepers in this year's PES realistic enough to spend their time adjusting the nets and putting their gloves on?

    He went all rapey and admitted he pays for sex. He then threatened to bum several members so a mod bummed him away from our merry forum.

    Yeah pretty much your last suggestion.. EG have really good hardware coverage so - as someone who is both a game enthusiast and tech investor focused specifically on hardware/semi companies - I would definitely want to see every new they put up. Even if it deals with older gear they can sometimes provide refreshing perspectives - I would put Techspot and Anandtech into the same category also (although parttly cos AT are often just so damn late w their reviews!).

    Dude 1) it's not free. Your paying for it with your address clicks 2) clicking through and reading old content takes up my time which also isn't free in that I could be doing something else with it.

    Word on the street was also that he was really really bad at games. Especially Warframe.

    He would have great at Titanfall 2 if the developers had completely redesigned the game around his many and varied deficiencies like he wanted.

    He was impressed with the pay structure on warframe. It reminded him of paying whores to play with his winky.

    How hard is it to admit that Craigy done goofed up when he tried to deploy his new portable version and it corrupted the dates for a few entries in the back end database.

    Nobody is going to believe some far fetched 'google ranking' story like that!



    I smell a cover up!
