Been awhile since an update
Posted on November 7th, 2020

I added a new advertiser to my website that many of you may have noticed. It would have probably been smart for me to post an update about it sooner since I did it a few months ago but I've been busy. I know the ads are more than there used to be but I have tried to avoid using any annoying ones.

My personal rule is I won't run any ads on this website that I wouldn't want to personally deal with myself. On mobile that includes the annoying drop down video ads that you see on wikipedia's that are almost impossible to close with hitting the X and I am kind of against the video ads that pop up on the bottom too.

If you hate the ads you can yell at me a variety of ways, posting on my youtube would be one. Any video, doesn't really matter. I know that's archaic but I haven't looked into a Disqus replacement yet. It's been a busy year and I apologize for not doing an update sooner and not being able to ask for your feedback in a more professional way. Hopefully in the upcoming future I will be able to grow this website into something more as it's currently run by a single person as a part time job and it has the potential of being much more. For that to happen though, I would need to focus on guide writing and delegate other tasks to employees.

Oh yea and they're banning boxers from World of Warcraft now, so that's a thing. That gives me more time to spend working on Almar's Guides though! *shrug*

Almar's Guides is finally Mobile friendly!
Posted on May 22nd, 2020

I have been putting off completing a mobile layout for my website for literally years since I thought it was going to be way harder than it actually was. Thankfully, it wasn't. As of right now-- Almar's Guides.com now has a mobile responsive layout that works for phones, tablets and desktop.

If you find any bugs with this layout or encounter any problems on phones, mobile or desktop please post below in the disqus section to let me know.

Google Ranking Changes
Posted on May 8th, 2020

So I noticed that many people are landing on the front page of my website and coming to my website directly now that Google has deranked me from the top of Google. You may be curious why this happened, as was I, it appears as though Google is giving higher rankings to people they deem "authoritative" sources. This is purely my theory/speculation but I have some anecdotal evidence to back it up.

Many of you may have already heard of this happening on Youtube for the last few months, it appears as though it has now moved to their search engine as well. This is purely my speculation but I believe this is what happened because Gamespot and IGN rank over me, as does Gamefaqs, despite how out dated the content is -- even in some instances where they only have blank pages for content. Example, if you google Persona 3 Social Link Guide, I am now at the top of the second page whereas IGN has a mostly blank page and gets ranked third. More evidence for those curious; Lufia 2 Game Genie Codes (Gamefaqs at the top over me).

This will most likely spell the doom for many smaller content creators/bloggers as almost everyone in the world uses Google. If Google decides to filter the information we can and cannot see in this way it won't matter if the content you create is good or not. All that matters is whether or not Google deems you authoritative or not. That's what will get you to the first page now.

I'd strongly recommend people to start using duckduckgo.com or even bing.com as well as google from here on out. Both of these are search engines which don't willy-nilly rank content from sources they deem authoritative.

WoW Classic
Posted on April 4th, 2020

I hope everyone is well and staying indoors during the Coronapocalypse going on out there. During the last few weeks I have been busy compiling information for WoW Class Guides, such as Macros and Consumable Lists as well as useful Addons for each class. I'll be adding more information to these pages over the next few weeks as well. They aren't really creative guides so they're easy to update - they're just lists of information.

The Witcher 3, Final Fantasy 15 and WoW Classic
Posted on February 9th, 2020

It's been awhile since my last update! I've been quite busy these last few months and finally have something to show for it. As the title of this update says, I have completed Witcher 3 and some Final Fantasy 15 guides. I'm only ready to release the Witcher ones to the world, I still need to edit the Final Fantasy 15 ones then I will update this page.

The Witcher 3 Side Quest Guides

The Witcher 3 Story Quest Guides

Final Fantasy 15 Side Quest Guides

Along with these guides, I will hopefully be updating/adding more WoW Classic Guides soon. I plan to do some raid oriented guides and later most likely some Boxing Guides.
