Hi, folks!

I have a little doubt that I'm a little confused.

If I have a technology blog and I want to create a post about "Multiplayer games", should I make a post for Android and another one for iOS, or directly a single post that includes all multiplayer games from all platforms?

What would be the best in terms of SEO?

    Like many things "SEO", it comes down to how people are searching. Are there a significant number of searches specifically for multiplayer games for iPhone (or iOS) and also for multiplayer games for Android? If so, separate posts.

    Thank you for your response!

    I definitely think I'll do two separate articles. I hope this doesn't create a long-term problem of keyword cannibalization.

      Well, if you are going to write exactly the same thing for both posts and just switch the word "android" with "iOS" don't bother. In that case, you'd be better off writing an article that outlined the games you could play on both devices.

      If there are device-specific games, you could ALSO write two more articles - one for just Android-specific games and one for iOS-specific games. Then, at the bottom of your original "both devices" article, say some thing like ... "Wait there's more! Not every multiplayer game can be played on both devices. Here are some great multiplayer games that can only be played on Android devices [link to article] and we've got another article that shows the multiplayer games just for iOS [link]."

    Get the answer by doing a keyword analysis for both options.

    Rule of thumb: the more specific the keyword, the more targeted the traffic

    I'm glad you clarified that Dave. Well done!

    If the differences are surface-level and not detailed, you can organize them in the same blog instead of creating two separate guides.

    Just a single post on all platforms will do. I think we are talking about omnichannels here.
