What’s the value of a Google review to you?
It may not seem like much, but a simple review on the world’s top search engine site can be the difference on if you’re at the top of a search engine page or the bottom when internet goers are searching for companies in your vertical.
Continuously gaining new reviews is a proven way to not only increase your visibility, but also your ROI. We’ve jotted down five reasons why Google reviews should be a priority for you and your business.
1. Helps your search engine optimization and visibility
Google tracks the activity of ratings and boosts the businesses who have a large quantity of high ratings, as well as ones who have a high number of ratings because it recognizes those businesses that try to engage with their customers.

One can make an argument that search engine optimization is a company’s most important asset. A business can have a flashy website with the most enticing visuals and products that are top of the line, but it’s all null and void if no one can find their services through a quick Google search.
In fact, 95% of web traffic goes to sites on the first page of a Google search engine results page (commonly known as SERP). Information like this is why being one of the first results on a search is so key for businesses.
So, how can DevDigital help clients increase their web presence? By offering them the most comprehensive SEO options in the state of Tennessee.

Competitive gaming has taken off in popularity over this past decade. The rise of competitive gaming genres (battle royal, first person shooter, sports, etc.), as well as dedicated streaming services and rising social media gaming stars has created this new craving for structured formats and events that revolve around these competitive video games.
Our clients at Guaranteed Gaming have a website, where gamers are looking to scratch their competitive itch and find various tournaments to enter. Not only can gamers sign up for tournaments for the game of their choice once registered to the site, but they can also wager in-site currency on themselves, or possibly others.
We sat down with DevDigital’s Cody Landrum, the project manager who oversees the development of the site, on how the site came about and the unique features it offers gamers.
DevDigital: Have you built a website like this...
With the growth of DevDigital, now entering its 11th year in business with over 1,500 projects and over a million programming hours logged, there has been a need for the company to expand its staff. The undertaking of more projects means more programmers and specialists are needed at their company in Vadodara, India. However, as more complex projects are started, DevDigital has decided it has needed boots on the ground in Vadodara to help oversee the various databases and provide guidance on some of the information created by these projects.
The company hired Micheal Hunt March 1 for the role of Senior Data Architect and IT manager. As Senior Data Architect, Hunt will design schemas for DevDigital’s databases, oversee training for data access and storage, set policies related to same, and direct Database Administrators.

March Madness has arrived! It’s that magical time of year where friends, family, and coworkers gather together to fill out brackets for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, hoping to correctly predict as many correct outcomes as possible for bragging rights.
Correctly scoring the best bracket is no simple task. The odds of scoring a perfect bracket are one in 9.2 quintillion. But like Han Solo famously said, “Never tell me the odds!”
Although a perfect bracket might be out of the question, there are still plenty of ways to manipulate the data in your favor when filling out your bracket and trying to figure out what upsets to call and to avoid. Listed below are a few data centers that implement some advanced analytics you can look to during your quest for creating the optimal bracket and that one shining moment.
It’s back! We touched on Adobe’s analytics campaign last...
DevDigital has been working around the clock to upgrade its PHP servers and migrating those upgrades for 500 customer websites.
To some, PHP (formally an acronym that stood for personal home page, but now stands for hypertext preprocessor) might seem like outdated programming and a thing of the past, thanks to some of the newer programs that have come out. However, we are still massive advocates of using a scripting language that has been around since 1995.
Below are a few reasons why we’re continuing to go with PHP for our primary programming and server needs.
1. It’s still universally used.
PHP provides coding to a massive number of websites across the globe. A lot of this can be attributed to Facebook being its most prominent user, but there are also plenty of Fortune 500 companies, such as Lyft, Slack, Tesla, Yahoo!, and Word Press who rely on PHP for their scripting. In fact, a...
The Super Bowl is widely regarded as one of the most globally-watched television events every year, and one of DevDigital’s clients, Glow Motion, played a big part throughout the weekend for Super Bowl 53.
Glow Motion, who puts together interactive LED lighting displays and installations for sporting events and concerts, was asked to create such installations for the halftime show featuring Maroon 5, Travis Scott, and Big Boi.
Mitch Ballard, one of DevDigital’s founding partners, was on site in Atlanta to help oversee the procedures. He is also the global sales manager and handles day-to-day operations for Glow Motion, so he played a big role in putting everything together.
If you watched Maroon 5 play, you may have noticed the LED beach balls bouncing around the crowd. Those were a product of Glow Motion, and there were 100 of them in total that night. 950 custom LED panels were also...
DevDigital is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed the building of Fast Track IT’s internal bidding and auction system.
Founded in 2006, Fast Track IT is an online auction marketplace where retailers can bid on various items with one another that they are interested in purchasing. Like any auction site, the user with the highest bidding is awarded the item. Fast Track’s inventory is stocked with items “for less than retail or to sell as an asset liquidation solution.”
“(Fast Track) was running on a legacy system with Filemaker for their lotting and other IT needs,” said DevDigital’s Director of Operations-India Viren Bhavsar, who oversaw the production of their auction system.
“They were using third-party software and paying way too much for subscriptions on both FileMaker for lotting needs and Maxnet for their auction software respectively. We moved them away from...
