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. A good review rating can push your business to the Google Local Pack, which lists the first three businesses near the top...

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.
DevDigital is proud to announce its new and much-improved SEO program geared to giving our clients a market-leading edge over their competition. We have completely reformed our SEO packages and added unprecedented functionality not...
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 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...
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...
There have been many conversations in Nashville recently about how to improve our public transportation system to meet the needs of our growing population. Perhaps you have noticed in the past couple of months an influx of men and women flying around the downtown area on electrical scooters. This new form of transportation was one solution offered by a company called Bird. The company was founded in 2017, and its main vision was to provide a shared transportation system that was environmentally friendly, user friendly, and friendly on the rider’s wallet.
A Bird scooter is the ideal mode of transportation for a person who needs to get to a place that might be too far to walk, yet too close to call a Lyft or an Uber. The user simply downloads the Bird app on his or her smartphone, which pulls up a map locating the closest Bird scooters that are available to ride. After finding a, ...
We’re moving! We are a little sentimental about leaving our beloved office space at the historic Berger building; however, with the ongoing success and growth at DevDigital, we need a bigger space to reach the needs of our team and our clients.
The Berger Building is a historic landmark on Rosa L. Parks Blvd. in downtown Nashville and has been operating as a space for local businesses to operate since 1926. In 2012, we felt very fortunate to move into a building that is on the list of the National Register of Historic Places. At that time, we had only six employees and had not yet discovered the potential of the basement space below (if you’ve attended a DevDigital party, you’ve surely checked out the “best kept secret party room” in Nashville.) Speaking of the “best kept secret party room” in Nashville, in the past six years we have hosted TONS of celebrations and emptied hundreds of...

This is all done automatically through the app, no...
We were thrilled to work with Time Miner to launch their app that is revolutionizing the way professionals bill their clients for their time used with a smartphone to talk and to text. Before this app, professional would have to go through the time-consuming process of billing by making notes with pencil and paper, scrolling through phone records, and recalling phone conversations and text messages by memory to keep up with billable time. Sean Martin and Pierce Schubert had a vision to create an app that is not only easy to use, but also functional for the users. We were honored to work with them to achieve their goal. It is no surprise to us at DevDigital that they were honored at the ABA Techshow in Chicago and voted as one of the top three legal technology startups!
Time Miner launches first of...
