Search Engine Optimization?


Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website or a web page in search engines via the "natural" or un-paid ("organic" or "algorithmic") search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search, academic search, news search and industry-specific vertical search engines.
Search engine optimization. (2011, October 31). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 22:22, November 29, 2011, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Search_engine_optimization&oldid=458278713

What Is Search Engine Optimisation?

In simple terms, Search Engine Optimization, often referred to as SEO,  is the process of increasing the amount of traffic (visitors) to a web site from search engines via intuitive or natural search word matches. These 'matches' are referred to as 'keywords'. The basic aim is to create a website that contains enough 'keywords' in it to allow a search term to match the words within a web site, the earlier a site appears in the search results list, the more likely it is to get more visitors. Optimisation is not only aimed exclusively at words,  targeting different possible types of searches include: searches for images,  local services and business searches, or industry, product services with in specific search engines is also an important strategy.


Owning a website is like owning a grain of sand. Each grain of sand, when combined with other grains, eventually creates a beach. Only a very few proportionately settle on the top and become visible. This sounds very similar to the World Wide Web - I think?

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is a cost effective promotional tool and sometimes helps to get your grain of sand noticed and might be the answer for generating more sales or visits.

Is your business a Social Network?


A small business is a business that is privately owned and operated, with a small number of employees and relatively low volume of sales. Small businesses are normally privately owned corporations, partnerships, or sole proprietorships. The legal definition of "small" varies by country and by industry, ranging from fewer than 15 employees under the Australian Fair Work Act 2009, 50 employees in the European Union and fewer than 500 employees to qualify for many U.S. Small Business Administration programs.

Society is a network, business is a network, families are a network...

Description unavailableWhen you ride a horse your body has contact with the horse’s body. If you really get a good contact with a horse it feels like your spine is conected to the horse’s spine, a thought to turn right feels like it happens imediatly, you feel as one. This is a bizzare feeling but is an example of an organic plug in network. This feeling can be reproduced in a small business context. FaceBook ect. did not invent ‘networks’!

Using established networks can be an important way to achieve growth in small, medium and large businesses. If you get it right the flood gates will open and visitors will come flooding in! Sales will increase and your profile will soar. It is important that a robust strategy is created for a network sales campaign to succeed, achieve this and you will create a formidable and powerful tool.

We are all now all very aware that the success of a website depends on a myriad of variable factors. One stratagem employed by Optimizers is to 'sell the brand' via social networking sites. One of the main distributors is Twitter - if you already have an account you will be aware that the posts placed are 99% twitter shit. There are however more niche networking sites.

Get noticed, make your web site work for you – don’t let your web site be your master and you the slave. Make your investment of time, money and heartache pay. Achieve brand loyalty.

What is a Solar Panel Made of? #Green and clean #Taunton #business

Solar cells are primarily made of silicon and do not contain any corrosive materials or moving parts. Silicon makes up 27.7% of the Earth's crust and is the second most abundant element after oxygen. The silicon wafers' surfaces are infused with minute amounts of impurities primarily Boron or Phosphorous in order to promote the production of electricity. Other materials used in solar panels are - Outer surface: Glass. Electrical Contacts: palladium, silver, nickel, or copper. Panel Frame: Aluminium.

What is Photovoltaic energy?
Photovoltaic energy is produced when sunlight is converted into energy with the use of solar cells or semiconductors. As long as the solar cells are exposed to light, they will produce photovoltaic energy with a minimum of maintenance. This energy is also environmentally clean, quiet, and safe. The term "photovoltaic" has two parts: photo, a Greek word meaning light, and voltaic, a reference to electrical energy innovator Alessandro Volta.

 

This initiative to create 'green websites' isn't a marketing ploy; we should encourage responsible environmental practices inside the office and practice them outside the office. Many of our clients feel just as strongly.

North Devon Web belongs to a network of websites that host in a green way. We can offer hosting deals for businesses based in Taunton and Somerset. North Devon Web is helping to prevent the release of 2,660 metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere each year by hosting on ‘Green Servers’ – as a result, the network’s energy efficiency is equivalent to planting approximately 2,390 acres of trees, not driving 6.1 million miles, or removing 510 cars from the road.

Indiscriminate direct business mail

First page of a 1928 direct mail marketing adv...Companies that attempt to generate sales entirely through indiscriminate direct mail, cold calling or email campaigns are going to find the going tough. Unique leads for your niche market are the best leads and by targeting the people who really need your product you stand a better chance of getting the positive response you require. It is important to know who your clients are. Read more…

It has been the fashion in recent years to abandonn direct mail (using the traditional postal mailing service) in favour of online marketing and email campaigns. Companies are however returning to this marketing tool and being more creative using shaped flyers. These not only get the recipents interest, but in some cases businesses are doubling response rates.

If you scatter gun 100,000 people with unsolicited emails you will probably create a negative image for your business - bought email lists are not as effective as somebody saying "I'm interested in your product". Have a look in your own inbox for proof this approach does not work. Do you deal with the unsolicited direct (spamming) marketers and do you trust them? Do you read all the junk mail that drops onto your doormat? If you send out of 10.000 emails you might get a response from less than 1% of them - there is a possibility you might not get any quality leads at all.

Sitemap - Generation for Business - Green options


Google introduced Google Sitemaps to enable web developers to publish lists of links from across their sites. The basic premise is that some sites have a large number of dynamic pages that are only available through the use of forms and user entries. The sitemap files can then be used to indicate to a web crawler how such pages can be found.

Google, Bing, Ask and others support the Sitemaps protocol. Having a sitemap enables the biggest search engines (and the smaller) gain easy access to your updated page information. Sitemaps do not guarantee all links will be crawled, and being crawled does not guarantee indexing. However, a sitemap is still the best method of getting a search engine to learn about your entire site. XML sitemaps have replaced the older method of "submitting to search engines" by filling out a form on the search engine's submission page. Now web developers submit a sitemap directly, or wait for search engines to find it.

The art of business? - WordPress

Is blogging the promised land? Exclusively for those with the will power, stamina and creativity to make it into a powerful, effective sales tool?

Blogging is that naughty puppy you bought from the dogs home – a whimsical error of judgment. It was a good idea at the time but now a few months on you are still dealing with the crap and as it grows it needs more and more attention and more and more food to sustain it. You can’t plan a vacation until you have sourced and paid for its care in a kennels – you can’t leave it alone for more than a few hours in case it gets up to mischief. The naughty puppy has become an uncontrollable beast that needs to be returned to the dogs home or destroyed with a lethal injection or a bullet to the head.

The Nude in Art

Olympia

What shocked contemporary French audiences of the late 19th century was not Olympia’s nudity, nor even the presence of her black maid (the black female was regarded by 19th century Europeans as a savage, a nymphomaniac – to have a white woman naked with her maid clothed was a provocative statement). Olympia’s confrontational, erotic gaze and the symbolic references to her as a courtesan (demi-mondaine): the orchid in her hair, her bracelet, pearl earrings and the oriental shawl on which she lies, which are symbols of wealth and sensuality. The black ribbon around her neck, and her single cast-off slipper mark her as a temptress.

Sleeping Venus (Giorgione)
The painting was inspired by Titian’s Venus of Urbino, which in turn refers to Giorgione’s Sleeping Venus. Olympia’s authoritative hand (the model was Victorine Meurent) covers her nudity (same as a Page 3 girl) as if to emphasize her independence, sexual dominance and her status as an object of desire. Manet replaced the little dog (symbol of fidelity) in Titian’s painting with a black cat, which symbolized prostitution. People have suggested that she is looking in the direction of a door, as a client barges in unannounced.

Gerhard Richter - Tate Modern

 
They say that wine matures with age and without doubt the later paintings of Gerhard Richter are his finest. His ability to travel through art history and create and respond to his own history is remarkable. To learn skills and then have the confidence to morph them into another methodology is a difficult thing to do. The paintings Cage (1) - (6) 2006 are without doubt in my top 10 list.


  • Confidence trick from the blog of Veronica Henry
    At the weekend, I went to the Gerhard Richter exhibition at Tate Modern. I was blown away, not only by the richness and variation of his work, but also his methodology: sometimes planned and ordered, sometimes random - sometimes both. It made me think long and hard about the way I write, and it occurred to me that the one quality all his work had, however it was generated, was confidence. Here is a man who knows what he is capable of and who is not afraid to experiment and take risks, but at the same time is very definite about what he has to say. Whatever image he ends up with, his voice is always loud and clear. It made me realise that confidence is the most important item in the writer's toolbox. With confidence, you can write what you like and how you like, instead of slavishly following a formula. Confidence, of course, comes with experience, but the danger there is that one becomes complacent instead of pushing the boundaries. Something that Richter was clearly never afraid to do. And that is when genius emerges: when talent and confidence and craft combine with risk.

Map showing location of the Rhondda Valley wit...

Rhondda or the Rhondda Valley lies along the River Rhondda.

During the early to mid 19th century the Rhondda Valleys were inhabited by small farming settlements. In 1841 the parish of Ystradyfodwg, which would later constitute most of the Rhondda Borough, was recorded as having a population of less than a thousand inhabitants. With the discovery of massive deposits of high quality, accessible coal during the mid 19th century the Rhondda Valleys experienced a large influx of financial immigrants.

Solar Feed-in-Tariffs cut drastically in Government review

As of 31st October 2011, the Government has announced that they will be slashing Feed-in-Tariffs for domestic solar installations. Government Ministers have emphasised the need to stay within the allotted budget in the face of falling solar costs, but critics are foreseeing a sharp contraction of demand and an end to free solar financing schemes and social housing projects.

 From the blog of Peter Bright

 

This was taken with a 35mm Pentax SLR in 1974 and manipulated in the darkroom in Stourbridge College of Art and Design. This reminds me of the simple pleasures I had messing about with making images – it is a shame I have become cynical.

There are millions of ‘Art’ viewpoints; some take a position of extreme difficulty or resistance. This position questions everything and is unforgiving. The principal is that artists should look beyond the superficiality of life and expose the core. They should also look at the superficiality of Art and culture and rip and tear at the flesh of its own conception, rejecting Metaphor, Romanticism etc. etc. By implementing such self imposed draconian measures you may be left with a purity of ideas but that leaves little to create or live for.

North Devon Web belongs to a network of websites that host in a green way. North Devon Web is helping to prevent the release of 2,660 metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere each year by hosting on ‘Green Servers’ – as a result, the network’s energy efficiency is equivalent to planting approximately 2,390 acres of trees, not driving 6.1 million miles, or removing 510 cars from the road.
The web hosting industry has a negative impact on the environment due to the energy hungry servers that are used to keep the Internet fueled. We can all try to limit the impact where possible and hosting on a green server is a step in the right direction. More and more people are buying from carbon ethical companies - tackling climate change is an important criteria.

How do you actually write a good ' Art' blog post?

The search for new content is a crucial day to day exercise to show your returning visitors that pages are being updated. This task becomes almost impossible when you have nearly said everything there is to say. Try to re-package your blogs content or your websites information and widen your audience - not everyone reacts to the same information in the same way, some people like to read blogs and some like to read more structured information and content.

We can install, manage and maintain a shopping cart for you. We can also do the same for your blog using one of our favorite tools, WordPress. This free blogging tool is as an easy and extremely effective way of enhancing your web presence and business. To maintain a successful blog it is important to know your subject and to constantly expand your own personal knowledge.  A blog is another marketing strategy used for increasing a site’s relevance, by second guessing what people search for when using a search engine. It is important to write your posts using ‘good’ keywords.

Nancy Spungen left home at age 17 and moved to New York City. She worked as a stripper around Times Square (and allegedly at a brothel as well). She followed bands such as Aerosmith, The New York Dolls and The Ramones. In 1977, she moved to London and met The Sex Pistols. When lead singer Johnny Rotten did not show interest in her, she pursued bassist Sid Vicious and they soon moved in together.

As an 11 year old I watched the first moon landing in 1969. I was mad about everything to do with space travel, I would read anything that was about rockets, cosmonauts and astronauts. Later in my life I shook the hand of a man who shook the hand of my all time hero Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin, that was for me like touching history, if only secondhand (excuse the pun).
