The site actually use to be ranked in the top 3 for most of those searches. Would be cool if you help get it back there.

Also the 22,000 for Warcraft 2 search is probably a lot of people looking for the sequel to the Warcraft movie. It has invaded our searches I notice it a ton on twitter when I am scouting for players.

Awesome! Anyway, It should be pretty easy to get to #1 within 3-6+ months, for these terms and others. Ya just have to find war2s or other person(s) willing to put in the work. The good news is, out of a handful of top SEO practices, backlinks is one of the most effective ones and with that method you don't have to give site access to the people who do it, so you could actually have any and all war2 community members do backlinks. You would just want to be tactful about it, and not overdo it as google is always looking for spammy/artificial methods. 

Also, #1 gets about 2.5-3x as much traffic as #3 (just rough numbers off the top of my head, idk the exact statistics). So #1 should absolutely be the goal. The second part  that comes along with SEO, which matters greatly, is the website needs to be opt-in friendly -aka designed in a way that gets as many emails/downloads as possible. Right now it's a good site, but there's a whole host of reasons that might lead people to visit it and not actually submit an email nor ever complete the download and log on. No good having great SEO, if your site doesn't convert well.

Also, it's important to note, that every single one of these terms mentioned is considered "low competition" according to google. That means most of this stuff would be easy to rank.

Understanding that there's no real money in Warcraft 2 means that nobody is going to fight for the google traffic - so getting to #1, #2, or #3 on google for the largest volume / highest quality search terms for Warcraft 2 should be relatively easy for us.

You need to do SEO - specifically things like creating backlinks for site authority, and site optimization to make google happy). Either do it yourself for free, or hire it out for $500-800 per month. If you want to learn SEO, I can help you with the fundamentals and then point you in the right direction to take it to the next level.

Also, Adding a live chatbox program to the bottom right of the site will probably do wonders. If someone is available to talk to people, you'll get more downloads / new players this way. Also, if you aren't available to talk when they're on your site, they'll still potentially give you their emails.

You also need an opt-in form right at the top of the home page to get emails / phone numbers. Why? You're missing out on a lot of new players due to the "longish" process of downloading, installing, and figuring out how to log on and create a new name probably. Your website's current opt-in method seems to be only one option - "download the game". You need two options 1) Download the game. 2) Get in contact with us via email or phone.

You need a "contact us" page where they can email / call on the website. For a phone number, use a Google Voice phone number and forward it to your phone.

Also, if you haven't done it already - you need to edit the warcraft 2 wikipedia page to somehow mention the .ru site and link to it. Wikipedia's warcraft 2 page is getting large traffic.

if you're still serious about increasing war2 traffic mousey, lets talk sometime on discord.

I used a Google analytics platform to see what type of monthly search volumes google is getting for Warcraft 2 related inquiries.

On average 210 people search google each month for "Tides of darkness"

"warcraft 2 online" gets an additional 320 google searches.

heres some more:

590 for "warcraft 2 tides of darkness"
390 for "warcraft 2 game"
140 for "warcraft tides of darkness"
480 for "play warcraft 2"
1,000 for "free rts game"
140 for "warcraft 2 units"
210 "play warcraft 2 online"
22,000 for "warcraft 2"

Imagine if server.war2.ru was the first, second, or third website all of these people saw when they searched these terms. Imagine how many of them would then click the link to our site, and then how many might download and try the game.

This is only a small list of the potential popular or high quality searches people are doing each month for warcraft 2 or rts games in general. If you guys have any other terms you think potential new players might be searching, just let me know what it is and I'll search it for you and get you the numbers back. If you advertise on google or you are a potential google client, you can also do the searches yourself through Google Keywords Planner in your Adwords account.

Anyway, as you can see, there's a decent amount of traffic -  specifically, thousands of people searching for Warcraft 2 every month on google.

How do you capture this traffic?

If you are willing to pay, you can run pay per click ads on google (aka adwords), or pay someone to do search engine optimization.

If you would rather get this traffic to your website (server.war2.ru) for free, learn best SEO practices and then put in the time, or find someone in the war2 community who already knows it and is willing to put in the time.

If done right, it would be highly likely that you steadily get lots of new players every month through SEO.

If you ban trash talking, Swift will stop winning games in chat lobby and get raped 24/7.

Lol. I’ll still beat ya!

nooooo tk, how did it come to this! in his defense a "i cant play anymore because i can't use the pc because im in physical pain" quitting thread is def slightly more legit than a standard quitting thread.

try drinking tons of water tk, like make sure to cram down your 8 glasses every single day, there are tons of common aches/pains/ailments that actually boil down to inadequate water consumption!! it's a super easy thing to do & reversal of symptoms can be dramatic (completely resolved my chronic falkenitis)

Get an ergonomic chair and a bucket of ibuprofin or something... hell just get your spine removed - it'll be ok  ;)
or this  :thumbsup:

I wonder if that’s what fixed my wrist problems too...

I don't like WH being harassed anymore than I like you harassing/bullying Tora and others.

Just the same, that wasn't me showing up to laugh at you. Albeit, you are easy to laugh at. Sentinels comment could have applied to just about any number of things and it still would have been funny to me. Your narcissism and emotional stability aren't working in your favor here.

Also, stop trying to exacerbate what was said for the convenience of your silly vendettas. It weakens your anti-bullying cause, and also makes you a bad person and a bully for doing so. Me laughing at Sentinel's comment, or even if I were to laugh at your response to your friend  being bullied (which I didn't), does not mean you get to position me as being pro-bully.

That's clearly from a different thread. Nice try.

Also, you're a huge narcissist to think everything is about you. I wasn't responding to you, nor laughing at you. I still find that comment of Sentinels to be very funny.

I introduced myself into this thread because you brought me up in a negative manner, as you always do. I let you know that you're dumb for thinking I'm "jason767" and you overreacted, as you always do. I'm maintaining that you're a very bad person whom is a compulsive and pathological liar. I have no interest nor any potential gain in trying to reason with an insane person who is hellbent on fabricating slanderous fables and pulling people into her toxic presence.

Identify these "lies".

I'm not toxic. You are.

Find me one person I've attacked randomly and not defensively.

You showed up to laugh at me before jason showed up, and if tk thinks it's you, why shouldn't I think so since you two have a long history together.

I'm not putting the time into combating a habitual liar who will just build on top of her lies if someone argues with her fancy imagination. Also, I did not show up in your thread prior to you bringing me up. You should stick to what you do best, which is inventing lies that aren't immediately disprovable unlike the one you just put forth.

You are insane, pathological and slanderous. Just leave my name out of your posts entirely and witness how quickly you never see me mention you on either platform.

If you put as much effort into valueable activities as you put into showcasing what a combination of the rarest mental disorders makes someone look like, you could be the savior of humanity...

I love mcdernerds
