  • • Which type of website will suit our requirements > Static or Dynamic?
    Ans: A static website consists of a series of HTML files, each one representing a physical page of a website. So on static sites, each page is a separate HTML file. When you visit the homepage, you are viewing the actual homepage file. Even if two pages contain a chunk of identical content (like a footer), they both contain two versions. So, if you want to update the footer, you must do so twice, once on each page. This is fairly straightforward and it’s how all websites were built during the early years of the World Wide Web. A dynamic website uses server technologies (such as PHP) to dynamically build a webpage right when a user visits the page. Basically, what happens is the user goes to a certain web address and the server finds a bunch of different pieces of information that it writes into a single cohesive web page, which is what you see. Dynamic pages are the pages that change dynamically. Dynamic pages can change every time when they are loaded without making any changes. Dynamic web pages can also change their content based on what user do, like clicking on some text or an image. If the information stored in the database changes, the web page connected to the database change accordingly and automatically without human intervention. Dynamic sites are great for image galleries, online calendars or e-commerce etc. The dynamic Websites usually cost more to develop, as they require more complex coding and a content management utility needs to be developed to help you manage your Website information. But in the long run dynamic Websites are cost effective and easy to maintain. Many clients do a combination, having some dynamic areas such as a product catalogue where they have to change information or pictures regularly, and leave other pages such as contact information as static pages.

    1. Number of Downloads: the more downloads you get the more credibility the algorithm will give to your app and the more ranks you will win.
    2. Download retention: Its good to have many downloads, but if people download your app and then uninstall, this will negatively impact your rankings.
    3. Download Growth: it is said that the proportion with which downloads increment with time also boosts your rank.
    4. Total number of Reviews and Ratings: the more reviews and ratings your app (total and current version) has, the more it will weigh in the algorithm.
    5. Average Rating: the global average rating of your app. Of course the Play Store wants to offer the best quality content, so 5 star apps will rank better than 2 star. Good ratings will also encourage users to download your app, further boosting your ranks.
    6. App usage statistics: how frequently your app is opened and used. If people download your app but never use it, you have less chance of reaching the top ranks.
    7. App Update frequency: Apple wants the App Store to always provide fresh content. Therefore, apps that are regularly updated will be favoured by the algorithm.
