How to Play Xbox Live games on your windows phone

If you are a fan of the smartphone, then you must have heard of the Windows Phone. This is actually an operating system created by Microsoft and is basically a sequel to their Windows Mobile platform. The best thing about this smartphone is that it is created specifically for users such as yourself who like their phones technical and easy to use at the same time. They also created a user interface via a design language called Metro that has little to no negative effect on the hardware which operates it.

This makes this phone ideal for gaming! Yes, you read right! What if you knew you can actually play Xbox Live games on it? You can download all of them from the Windows Phone Marketplace.

How To View Your Profile

You can also take a look at your Xbox LIVE gamer profile, your friends’ profiles, messages and even customise your avatar using on your Windows Phone by following the given steps:
  • Tap ‘Games’ on your Windows Phone.
  • Flick to the left until you find your avatar and then select gamertag.
  • Go left to have a look at your friends, accomplishments and any messages you may have.

How to Invite Friends for a Game

If the Xbox game that you have requires a second player to play it, then you can also invite other players (like your friends) to play with you via their own consoles or Windows Phones. This feature is particularly useful for turn based games in which players have to play one by one and when you have no idea when your turn will come. So, to avoid a panic attack, invite your friends by:
  • Tap the ‘Games’ option on your Windows Phone.
  • Select the game you’re interested in.
  • Tap the multi-player option if the game requires more than one player.
  • Read and follow the on-screen instructions which will allow you to invite your friends from the contact list or email addresses saved in your smartphone.

As soon as you complete this procedure, your friends will receive your game invite through their own Windows Phones. This will also include instructions telling them how to join in on the game via their smartphones or online.

Charotero now exchanges link to BC Bloggers

In order to increase my daily blog traffic, now exchanges reciprocal links on BC Bloggers. BC Bloggers is a links exchange programs made especially for blogs. In order to be enclosed in a links exchange program you will need to put a BC Bloggers banner link in your blog.


What does Link Exchange means?

According to Wikipedia, a link exchange is a confederation of websites that operates similarly to a web ring. Webmasters register their web sites with a central organization, that runs the exchange, and in turn receive from the exchange HTML code which they insert into their web pages. In contrast to a web ring, where the HTML code simply comprises simple circular ring navigation hyperlinks, in a link exchange the HTML code causes the display of banner advertisements, for the sites of other members of the exchange, on the member web sites, and webmasters have to create such banner advertisements for their own web sites.

Benefits of Links exchange Program

·         Increase cost per click in most search engine. The advertiser cost increases.
·         Reciprocal links continue to drive traffic for as long as the links exists. It's true that you can not expect the same results as from the major search engines, but then again, there are no ongoing costs.
·         Free traffic,  the traffic that comes from established links is essentially free
·         Popularity in search engines
·         Participate in reciprocal link exchange gains a stable links.
·         The more links you have, the greater the "branding" effect for your name
·         A well-structured links page can actually be used to bring people back to your site.
·         Unlike pay-per-click search engines and banner ads, links take only limited management time once they are in place. This is the opposite of pay-per-click, because when you are spending money for each click, you need to constantly stay on top of both your bids and your volume. That is a hidden but very real cost of pay-per-click banners and ads. To assist you in managing your links, our site offers GI Link Manager, free for the downloading.
