     Google has now rolled out a new app rating system on the playstore. The previous app rating system created lot of confusion for the users and it was also a complication for the developers to rate the content as per the rating standard of each location.

So, the company has now introduced a latest app rating system based on the age. Google has made it strict to implement this for all the applications and if any developers misses to implement this will lead to removal of their app from the playstore.

This was the mail we(developers) received from Google :

“Your compliance and participation with the new app ratings system is required under the Google Play Developer Distribution Agreement. In the future, apps that aren’t rated using the new rating system may be removed from the Play Store.”

      When it comes to climbing up the Page Rank list to the top of Google searches, there are two camps: "White Hat" and "Black Hat" SEO, referring to the good guys and bad guys in the tradition of cowboy movies. Black Hat SEO involves practices that are obnoxious and/or immoral, while White Hat SEO practices are devoted to making sure that you're generating genuine interest, and then making sure that potential readers can find you. 

      Search engines, and Google in particular, have caught up with Black Hat practices, and so not only is it irritating to your potential audience, but it will actually harm your Page Rank once the search engines catch on. Therefore, they definitely count as "worst practices." This list will address a few Black Hat techniques that are still getting used, but also some mistakes that those devoted to White Hat practices might not even know they're making. 

1. Forgetting about human readers.

This is the number one biggest mistake you could possibly make when it comes to SEO. Both search engines and human readers want valuable content; the kind that others link to because they genuinely want to share it.

If you aren't thinking about your actual readers, people won't share your content, meaning that you're missing out on valuable links and an increased audience. Think of it this way-- if you put a little extra effort into making sure that your site is valuable to people, they will do your link building for you.

Google is improving its algorithms all the time, and it knows when your site is built to cater specifically to its bots, whichwon't do you any favors.
