History of creation of the site Wise Geek
The Wise Geek website (wisegeek.ru) was launched in October 2017. Initially, it was created for people who cannot imagine their life without modern devices and gadgets. From the very beginning, we aimed to fill the site with only expert content.
But success came when the Empires & Puzzles article was written. The chief editor of the site has accumulated a lot of experience and secrets of passing this game, and he decided to share them with other players. October 2017 was a turning point in the history of the site’s development.
From that moment on, it was decided to focus on mobile and computer games. There is a lot of scattered and unconfirmed data on the Internet. In our articles, we tried to give readers only the necessary and useful information.
Our team started to grow. We did not just review games, but formed detailed guides to help in their passage, with tips and secrets from experienced players and our specialists.
From the very beginning, it was decided to focus only on the quality of the site and content. We made a fundamental decision to abandon deceptive SEO technologies for website promotion. We are confident that people and search engines are able to value a quality site highly, even if it is young and not as reputable as its competitors.
Site principles and editorial policy
All articles must strictly comply with the editorial policy of the site. When preparing them, we strive to adhere to the following principles:
1. Usefulness. The article should be of use to the readers. It should help both novice players and experienced gamers in passing the game. Images should not only illustrate the content, but contribute to a better understanding of what is described in the article.
2. Completeness. There are many sources of information. We strive to collect as much data about the game as possible, and not be content with just a few sources.
3. Expertise. There are many opinions in the game world that can contradict each other (who is better to play for, how to level up correctly). The game can be played in many ways, and each of them has the right to life. We strive to understand the rules of the game and describe the most useful information for passing it. We do not provide advice that is harmful to players. We do not write about hacking games, mods, cheats and other deceptive technologies.
4. Registration. All articles should be well-prepared and structured as much as possible. The design should help readers find the information they need faster.
Partnerships and ad integrations
In July 2018, we were noticed by BlueStacks, a world leader that created a free emulator for running Android games on a PC. From that moment on, the Wise Geek website became their official partner.
As part of our partnership, we have carried out advertising integrations for many popular games:
In May 2019, our site became a partner of Alawar, one of the world leaders in the development, distribution and publication of casual video games. Within the framework of cooperation, more than 500 advertising integrations were carried out, including the following popular series of games:
- Lost Lands.
- New York Mysteries.
- Darkness and Flame.
- The Legacy.
In December 2021, our site became the official content provider for the gaming community of HONOR, a leader in the production of mobile phones for gamers. Cooperation involves both the publication of articles already available on the site, and the creation of new exclusive content.
We invite game developers, advertising agencies, companies and services to cooperate. The main condition is that your advertisement must be interesting and useful to our readers. What options for interaction are we considering:
- CPM (cost per thousand impressions)
- CPC (cost per click)
- CPA (pay per action)
Site development and plans for the future
We noticed that some game developers themselves make good guides and tutorials for their games. In January 2019, an article was written on Guild of Heroes, in the preparation of which we used the official developer guides. However, this material is useful only for beginners, so it has been significantly revised and supplemented with tips and guides from our specialists and experienced players. Thus, a new section was born on the site, articles in which were based on the official guides of the developers.
With the growing popularity of the site, we began to notice that visitors from different parts of the world visit it. Many used automatic translation systems. Therefore, in September 2018, the first article Empires & Puzzles was translated into a foreign language. Subsequently, we translated almost all the articles of the site into many languages of the world so that residents of different parts of the world could familiarize themselves with our site.
Our team conducts experiments on a regular basis. If the result is positive, then the changes are implemented throughout the site. For example, like our colleagues, we made comments on the site. But, due to the large amount of spam, insults, quarrels and intolerance to other people’s opinions, we decided to refuse the opportunity to comment on articles. And this freed up our time and energy, which we directed to the development of the project.
Site development plans:
- Make selections with games of various genres: strategy, adventure, role-playing, racing, puzzles, etc.
- For the announcement of new articles, we plan to create groups in popular social networks: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
- Translate the entire site into other languages of the world.
- Change the block with the authors of articles by adding a photo and a description of the author to it.
- Search and testing of new directions of site development.
These documents inform visitors that the site collects some information about them and their behavior. The information is necessary for the correct operation of site statistics and advertising systems.
This need is dictated by the legislation of many countries of the world, as well as respect for the site users. On each page of the site, we inform that when viewing the site, the visitor is obliged to take into account these legal documents. If he refuses to accept them, he must immediately leave the site.
