For the past two years I’ve posted details of upcoming Call of Duty titles to my blog. However I’ve decided to change things for the upcoming Black Ops 2, which is due to be released at midnight on Tuesday 13th November, 2012.

There are a couple of reasons for this.

Firstly, I need this website to be more “blog like”. Whilst I am an affiliate marketer some of the posts surrounding the original Black Ops and the more recent Modern Warfare 3 were blatant advertisements and don’t really fit what I’m trying to do here.

Secondly, the posts did pretty well in terms of hits and subsequent commissions but they could have done much better in a more appropriate surrounding. People buy games from games shops, right?

For some time now I’ve been sat on the domain and figured now would be an ideal time to put it to good use. The question is whether or not I can get it ranking really, really quickly.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

To start the ball rolling I’ve posted a couple of specific posts, How to get Black Ops 2 on release day along with Black Ops 2: standard vs hardened vs care package editions.

In an effort to improve the site’s ranking for Black Ops searches, I’ve thrown up a load of content covering a range of topics. An obvious starting point was some gameplay footage. No doubt people want to know whether or not they can quickscope in Black Ops 2, so I ‘ve thrown up some sniper footage.

Even though Black Ops 2 isn’t released for another month hardcore gamers will be trying to work out class set-ups, so I’ve included a complete list of perks as well as suggestions for the best weapons & killstreaks from people who have played the game early.

I’ve even tried to cover the more obscure questions like “can I have a gold riot shield?”. Well, you’ll be pleased to note, you can! Unlike previous Call of Duty titles, Black Ops 2 allows players to add custom camos to all weapons.

I’ll be adding Black Ops 2 content right up until the official launch, after which I will switch my focus to gaming headsets, both surround sound and stereo, for the PC, PS3 and XBOX. In addition, I’ll look at some technology specific to YouTubers, such as capture cards.

Finally, I’ve noticed that my conversions on image links are higher than their text equivalent, so I’ve cobbled ¬†together a load of banners, like this one:

  1. Mini update:

    The cheapest place to buy Call of Duty Black Ops II is… Tesco. Not surprising really, is it? If you pre-order the game via Quidco it’ll cost ¬£32, almost ¬£15 less than if you were to buy from GAME!
