SEO for Small Business Owners in the Digital Age – Part II of III on Local SEO

Keep introductions straightforward. Assuming you take a stab at composing a presentation for a title that as of now has one, you are likely best to allude to what’s as of now been laid out about that title.

  1. Understand what a publicist does

A publicist generates and manages publicity for companies, brands, or personalities – such as celebrities – as well as for their work, such as books, films, or albums. This can entail a website, often, that is your client’s publicity and work that they contract you to manage. A celebrity would have tremendous reach on social media, typically.

If your clients include celebrities, that’s fabulous! That would mean real squirrel.

  1. How to manage your PR

a) Social media is a great way to connect with other thought leaders

noun
A person whose views are considered authoritative and influential on a given topic.

People who do the same as you are a good bet to try to network with. If you are respectful and confident, it is possible that another thought leader with greater reach could help you extend the reach you have yourself.

b) Create your content and share it with relevant hashtags

? Google Alerts: My go-to service. I don’t believe that I’m required to be a brand, but many users feel that way. Google Alerts are invaluable to me for discovering how brands that matter to me are discussed with references back to Google

c) Respond to timely topics in the news

Many YouTubers, as I’ve observed, create videos based on news stories in their niche that people are talking about. I imagine the same is true on other platforms. If you can do good work in the short time following a timely news story, you may get further ahead than you thought.

d) Consider using free trials of content marketing and social media tools

I did this by starting with DrumUp six or seven years ago. DrumUp finds trending web pages based on keywords you provide. It’s been exciting to feel that I can be a voice on Twitter and Facebook.

e) Your brand’s social media strategy depends on the platform you choose

For example, how you use hashtags is much different on Facebook than it is on TikTok. This is a major theme to cover- – you will need to practice.

Sometimes only two or three platforms for social media are enough for a business. You can do more with less.

f) Social media is tremendous

You know that of course, it is. I worry about the future of it, but I want everything to work out.

g) Google Analytics

Google Analytics is one of the most popular digital analytics software. It is Google’s free web analytics service, that allows you to analyze in-depth detail, about the visitors to your website. It provides valuable insights that can help you to shape the success strategy of your business.

Despite not having the kinds of responsibilities before me that would require Google Analytics, I may have to work on learning how to use it.

  1. Why you need content promotion strategies

Your engagement is significant in that people should be responding affirmatively to your content. You should build a mailing list of people you can reach by email, even if you ignore this advice. If you have a product for sale, like an ebook, for a small price, you can make a bit of money if you advertise your ebook to your audience with a mailing list.

  1. Get your audience to do the promoting for you

Empowering perusers to share is extraordinary.

  1. Drive traffic to your website by providing quality content and by being an active commentator on blogs, social media sites, and forums where your target market hangs out

There is another piece of this article to go. AI played a major role in generating this article.

SEO for Small Business Owners in the Digital Age – Part I of III on Local SEO

What if there were a way to get the press and media outlets all over you?

Growing your small business’s website traffic can be tense. Thankfully, SEO is a challenge that you CAN overcome! Small businesses look for many things when searching for an SEO company, including Features and benefits of SEO services; What are the best features or tools?

How does the contract work?

  1. No Keyword Research

I am referring to how successful you will be without keyword research. Lots of people know that Internet traffic is invaluable. Your reach depends on how you use SEO.

SEO is search engine optimization, which means keywords that help search understand your page. The best SEO will help search engines to rank you favourably.

a) Write a blog post with the wrong keyword, then write another one incorporating the keyword at least twice.

For years I deliberately utilized “wrong” keywords. Let me clarify.

I had some idea of what made proper SEO, but I liked the idea of borrowing keywords. I was able to do this because the website where I download free stock photos includes lists of keywords.

When I finally decided to conform, what got me on the path was a free tool I discovered that can search the text for relevant keywords. I love it!

Did that solve my problems? Well, no, because my blog became somewhat of a fail even with an improved approach to keywords.

Why was this? The search engines must have detected my attempts to rank higher. A bias was clear.

6 months later: Indexed pages are low and bounce rate is high; try to do better for next time.

It will be most worthwhile for me to blog if my blog has a relevant theme. I do this for fun, not to bring home the bacon. I put the time in at it here and there, thinking the outcome may be interesting.

b) After July 24th, 2018, Google AdWords became Google Ads.

There are three distinct campaign types available today under the Google Ads brand, including Search, Display, and Video. Search ads are text ads that are displayed among search results on a Google results page.

Display ads are typically image-based and are shown on web pages within the Google Display Network.

Video ads are between six and 15 seconds and appear on YouTube.

With Google Ads, you can find out what searches are happening on Google, and how you can capitalize on that web traffic. In the interest of full disclosure, I’m not a business guy, but I know if you are trying to earn profits, Google Ads is a tool that can help you out quite a lot. I’ve only looked at it enough to gain a layman’s understanding.

c) Plug in some keywords that relate directly to your content in the search

Keywords interest me and I’ve been interested in them since 1996. I can remember learning about them in school. They seem intuitive, but something tells me that they are not.

An SEO company will offer to put your business on the front page of Google. They help customize a client’s website so that its SEO makes it attractive to search engines like Google. A “problem” I’m having is that my SEO isn’t great.

In fact, if you are reading this, maybe you have an idea of what I could do to master some traffic to my blog. At the end of this part of my exposition on SEO, you could leave me a comment if you have a suggestion or other feedback.

This article I’ve written will continue soon, in two more parts.

World Economic Forum – Are They for Real?

According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), to successfully create a digital ecosystem, organizations need to adopt three core principles: becoming open, interoperable, and decentralized. Now, why would they claim this? What is their reasoning?

Before we can even begin answering that question –

  1. Why do you need to listen to the World Economic Forum?
  2. What is a Global Risks Report?
  3. Is it that important? Do I have to read it?
  4. Can it help me in my business and life?
  5. Are they making all these big moves based on data compiled from surveys or reports from some “experts” as they claim on their website www .weforum .org? That’s Davos Agenda.
  6. Why do you need to listen to the World Economic Forum?

On YouTube, Russell Brand made the point, a few days ago, that you weren’t invited, was you? He was illustrating that the conference doesn’t have your interests at heart, even though your leader in the world may have been there herself. Don’t you and everyone else pay state tax revenue?

Russell Brand works hard of assembling the 10,000-foot view.



BBC
Russell Brand: Society is collapsing – BBC News
  1. What is a Global Risks Report? The World Economic Forum (WEF) released its Global Risks Report 2022 recently. For seventeen years running, each year the Global Risks Report series tracks how risk experts and world leaders in business, government, and civil society perceive global risk.

The world’s best risk experts examine risk in five categories: economic, environmental, geopolitical, societal, and technological. I can remember learning about risk management in economics 101 in college, and my brother Josh once was heard to joke around about its significance. He’s also told me not to joke.

An example of an economic risk might be a nation’s gross national product losing value. About environmental risk, we’ve heard a lot, but it is how endangered species, for example, literally die off and no longer exist, which is not something everybody likes to acknowledge. All of us are men and women, and none of us are gods.

Those animals that cease to exist do matter. Everybody should understand that. Next, geopolitical risk has a clear example, right, in how Russia decided that Ukraine belongs to it.

You know it’s a nightmare. Societal risk, the next risk, is like Covid-19 killing people. Technological risk is like ByteDance giving teenage girls Tourette’s Syndrome, by addicting them to scrolling through TikTok.

Examples like these could be, I am guessing, in the WEF Global Risks Report. If I had more time, I would read it, other than looking over this year’s preface this week, but I’ve heard about it from a few thinkers. It could change the lives of everybody.

  1. Is it that important? Do I have to read it?

I don’t think you want to read that any more than you want to read the Terms and Conditions of Instagram or TikTok. My sister, Kaitlyn, I’ve heard make a point like that clear, but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t think about it. You probably want to know that there is a powerful alliance around the world, with an interest in the new world order.

Did my sister and her husband know that? I don’t think they did.

  1. Can it help me in my business and life?

Not really. It means that the new world order is structured something like Dark Ages fealty. If you are a street vendor, you might make more money, because you’re potentially given additional authority to provide shoppers with distinct and necessary goods that they want.



Medievalists.net

I am not trying to worry people, but the writing’s on the wall. If you don’t want to work, you might accept universal basic income, free money to spend on renting commodities that you want or need. Merchants will have a role under this structure where they control people’s buying habits.

A problem is that they will be reporting everything you buy, compromising your freedom. Rather than involving you in the decision-making process, state assessments will be defining and predict what is going to happen. That is one way it resembles the Dark Ages.

Until the Renaissance, scholars sought to periodize history and influence how future generations would remember them, I have read. I’ve heard talk about the situation that has got me feeling like I should be a little concerned.

  1. Are they making all these big moves based on data compiled from surveys or reports from some “experts” as they claim on their website www .weforum .org? That’s Davos Agenda.

It’s countries surveying what is happening all over the planet and making expectations. It would put the government better in control. Russell Brand has, lately, again reminded his viewership that we’re supposed to be democratic.

Politicians should take their cues from citizens, Brand helps point out, not this potential for a new world order where everybody is dealing with undue government measures. I guess it should be clear that Brand is a successful comedian on YouTube whose channel might get us out of a mess.

In any case, Brand’s point isn’t exclusively to go against Davos, which he has been accomplishing for a long time.

I think Brand’s thing is that ordinary people can make intelligent decisions the same as people working in government (for example, politicians), and Brand doesn’t want a world bereft of qualities that lend themselves to being a decent place to live. Like if we let art stop, music and theatre come to an end, and we begin to live in a fealty-oriented Dark Age, it would not be a great civilization to be a part of. It would mean things like literature getting pointless, as nobody would be in a position to add to it, and media becoming state propaganda, instead of the assistance that digital media provides to things like democracy, human rights, and journalism.

I don’t think it would be a good idea. We would have the industry beneath Big Tech, and we wouldn’t be able to use it, even though it’s cheap to run, and as powerful as astronauts at NASA taking a shuttle to the moon. In 1969, contrasted with what even our youths naturally grasp, everyone with a cell phone and Internet access can explore enormous data momentarily.

You don’t grasp what Russell Brand is saying or talking about when you think of him as a comedian and (probably) a sex symbol. That’s fine, but it’s worth taking an interest in what he does, as Brand is dismissive of the World Economic Forum and critical of many discussions that indicate corruption or unfairness for the poor, or advantages that Big Tech and Big Pharma exploit to control people. He is on YouTube, and his videos are monetized, so that’s his career these days, but as a populist voice, he’s funny, and he’s good.

Brand’s interest in knowledge kind of grows, but it’s always going in the same direction, and his perspective, which he might deny he is giving you with his channel, is always in favour of a social change in a direction completely different than the Davos Agenda. From the fact that he has only one YouTube channel, you can infer that he has to distance himself from being the leader of a social movement. He will not be let off the hook unless he keeps mostly within the rules of the YouTube community.

I’ve never heard him say that a video of his was taken down, and I don’t think YouTube would want to do that to him, since he and his team are only a few people doing YouTube. He’s a virtuoso. Wouldn’t you say?

Thanks, Mr. Brand.

I started with the subject of this story, about associations zeroed in on being open, interoperable, and decentralized. I arrived at this question with the help of AI. Open means authentic, transparent, and inclusive.

These are good principles to follow. However, I am not sure that the WEF is sincere in saying that. I’ve provided above an idea of what Russell Brand says the agenda of the WEF looks like.

It’s open like thieves hiding in plain sight. Interoperability is conceivably a legend. Do you know who made that point loud and clear?

Mutahar, the YouTuber behind someordinarygamers, alluding to Meta’s metaverse, said in a recent video about whether Meta will prevail that it is basically not going to be interoperable with rival metaverses. A comparison was made between the interoperability of video games between rival systems. The metaverse is being discussed more and more every day, and I think there are two general realities in the metaverse that are relevant.

One is Meta’s metaverse, which is probably at least a couple of years away before its potential is realized, and the other is, I think, sort of Web 3.0. The basics of Web 3.0 is that it’s the Internet of Things. Neither of these accounts of the metaverse is comprehensive, but I suspect since I’m learning a little about the metaverse every day, which is just a drop in the bucket, that the best way to anticipate the heyday of the metaverse is to consider both Meta and Crypto.

I am not just not sure that there won’t be an endgame for either foundation of Big Tech. Decentralized is a buzzword that applied to bitcoin. I don’t think cryptocurrency is going to wind up decentralized, but nice try.



Encyclopedia Britannica

Jack Dorsey’s exit from Twitter illustrates how innovators in the cryptocurrency space will likely succumb to frustration and exhaustion, as he possibly did. The long and short is that the WEF is lying. They are borrowing from the best of the technology industries and laying waste to its potential.

That’s really what Russell Brand has picked up on and is critical of. Those kinds of lies could do a lot of harm to people who are lucky enough to live in the free world.

Write about what motivates you. #bloganuary

Since I understand that social media is the reality for most of the first world, I am reasonably immersed in social media. My favourite YouTubers, whether they’re creating content specifically for YouTube or bands who are bringing out new material or old material from the old days when people like that did something fantastic, make me feel strong. The love for tech is naively formed, perhaps, but keeping in mind that the biggest firms, like Meta and Alphabet, would like your data, if not every single tech company, watching favourite creators become YouTube stars makes me feel strong most of the time.

I feel strong when a savvy TikTokker post turns out to be a great video, scored with some piece of music I’ve often enjoyed.

I feel solid when a companion or relative accomplishes something advantageous, since I like great choices, and not terrible. I can be a useful individual.

I feel strong when nations and their people stand together. Although I usually feel as though I am the spy in the back of the meeting of revolutionaries, heading for the gallows if I am caught redhanded for my true allegiance, I do enjoy when people with a common background come together. That can make for an extremely strong encounter.

A smart piece of writing, or other great content, makes me feel strong. It feels good to share trending web pages to Twitter and Facebook when I think they can provide food for thought. I feel strongly about posting on the Maple Lawn Facebook page for my father’s business.

Hi, it’s Patrick, Maple Lawn Cemetery’s Facebook page operator.

Wednesday‎, ‎January‎ ‎19‎, ‎2022 12:06 PM

I feel strong being with my girlfriend when she is happy with me. A relationship like our own strength is the main strength I have, considering that life is not a practice run. I would rather not hazard losing her warmth and care.

Taking part in a blogging challenge like WordPress’ bloganuary makes me feel strong 🙂

How would you describe your favorite photo? #bloganuary

When I was young, when a girlfriend and I went to the regional butterfly conservatory, I took a photo of her smiling and seeming happy while seated in the semi-tropical environment. I took it with an old-fashioned camera. The negative is likely lost, and the photo has begun to curl. I was happy to think of it, though, when I read the prompt from WordPress.

Nowadays, I have a Sony camera that I take pictures with, from the time of Windows 8. Looking through the photos app on my desktop, I remember a photo dated the afternoon of one Wednesday in September 2014. It’s a photo of the field near the building that used to be a church, and which belongs to my dad, most of it being maintained by him and a few others. I had a FinePix Z1, and it was easy to get the photo. You can see the clouds peeking through the trees are a little bright, and the sunlit grass of the field is a little bright too. By then, I’d had a couple of years’ experience of being self-employed. The riding mower in the background is how I cut the grass every week.

Wednesday‎, ‎September‎ ‎3‎, ‎2014 1:59 PM

It meant a great deal to me, and I’m afraid some of my enthusiasm has waned. I surmise I’ve run into burnout. I do enjoy maintaining a tiny presence on Facebook for the cemetery. It’s the core of my dad’s business, and I do a lot of other social media that isn’t all geared to Maple Lawn Cemetery, which is our cemetery, or about Catholicism, or anything else like that. For example, I am participating in these January writing prompts because they are fun for me, and they are making January more fun than it would have been.

My better half nowadays is magnificent. It’s not the girl from the butterfly conservatory, but what can you do? I don’t think she characteristically wants her photo taken, but maybe I’ll ask her again.

I hope you like the photo.

Are there any causes you’re passionate about and why? #bloganuary

It wasn’t until I wrote the bloganuary writing prompt for January about being inspired by someone that I realized how highly I regard Russell Brand’s social criticism on YouTube.

Who is someone that inspires you and why? #bloganuary

Writing my viewpoint made me see that some of Brand’s observations are making sense, and must be to a lot more people, too.

I think Russell Brand sees a transition to a world of smaller and better-knit communities, a more ideal world where the individual flourishes and the community meets the needs of all. When Brand refers to his understanding of how such a world might look, I start to think he’s onto something.

Brand’s other channel, Awakening with Russell, is geared to meditation and devoted to helping people look inward at themselves to begin to recognize what’s there.

It would be perfect if we lived in small communities where our wants were satisfied, yet we could rest assured that people everywhere else likewise have what they need. There would be no warfare. The world is a little like John Lennon described in the lyrics to his song Imagine.

I don’t think Brand wants a tough commute and a grind behind a desk with only hazelnut coffee or the like and a donut or danish to start the day. I’m sure he doesn’t.

It seems like his values are that of a gentleman who holds others in high regard. His videos praise his viewers, and he makes fun of concepts like the metaverse, Mark Zuckerberg’s creation for remote workers. Brand doesn’t think that’s the right direction for people to go in.

Oftentimes, Brand pokes fun at established institutions and is cautious of totalitarian-leaning change that right-wing speakers employ in an attempt to control individuals more efficiently.

I think Russell Brand represents a cause I could get passionate about.

What is one life lesson everyone can benefit from learning? #bloganuary

Everyone has the same shot at the same time in their lives. Fortune favours the bold, and I remember working locally in sales and my manager, a lightweight, middle-aged lady matched against my early thirties or mid-thirties, called out, “Didn’t your grandmother teach you that?”

The lesson was both spoken and fated to be a memory, until tonight. The subject of a day-to-day example is hard for me to compose. I almost feel as though I should read something new. I didn’t know I would find it so hard to write a post about the question of what every person needs to learn. I thought I could write of love, or perhaps family, but I didn’t settle on either of those topics. I remember what my sales manager asked about my grandmother, and I knew that was probably the best lesson the lady would give me.

It was a seasonal job, mostly year-round. I exited it discretely by failing to call up the office, at the end of December. Some well-timed holiday wishes and I might have stayed employed there. A call a little too late, and I saw I’d been too optimistic. The same opportunity was present for everyone who knew to call. I was too late, and it wasn’t owing to my ability to do the job that it became kind of a fail for me, it was realizing that perhaps I’d better settle in or I would be left behind. It was a two-part lesson.

The second part is to go the distance and make an initiative. Two notes: draw on whatever positive direction you were sent. Once situated, continue and you’ve got a cue to aim with.

Thank you, WordPress, for the January writing prompts.

Share how you overcame a challenge. #bloganuary

Photo by Words as Pictures on StockSnap

A difficult challenge for me to face was smoking grass. I started smoking pot with my friends when I turned eighteen. We had a lot of fun putting on the tunes and lighting up.

I was mostly in it for a good time, but it upset my mother. At the time, it was illegal. When it came time to go to college, I stopped, but I missed it.

In fact, I missed my friends–I was away from my home at school. I thought I would feel better. My first semester of college was challenging because I lived in a dormitory, and my friends got drunk often.

On the weekend, they would go out to the bars in packs, and while I was smart, I lacked study skills. I spent a lot of those weekends reading and writing for school. I felt left out and lonely.

In fact, it became hard for me to stay sober–I had to work at it. I was a little scared of ruining my chances for a career. While I had a general art & science diploma from college, I had emotional difficulties–back home in my parents’ house, the best work I could find was telephone sales work, which was disappointing after putting so much effort into earning a college diploma.

The jobs I got were boring and eventually disappeared in favour of lounging about, back on the reefer. While I made the decision to quit, I actually had to count the days until the habit dispersed. It’s said that it’s not a physical addiction, but I had trouble putting an end to it.

Smoking pot was one challenge I overcame–I liked partying with my friends, but no one stays young forever. I don’t have those same friends, as they went their separate ways. I can kind of guess the element that was the bond for all of us to keep thick as thieves.

What does your ideal day look like? #bloganuary

What’s extravagant is an incredible night’s rest, perhaps nine hours to re-energize.

Morning coffee is excellent, typically several cups. Taking a look at my YouTube menu in the morning helps shape my inner world. Watching videos, whether for entertainment, information, music, or an intersection of all these stops (!), is a great way to handle the early hours of the day.

I wouldn’t be satisfied without making time for TV entertainment. I enjoy single episodes like people would watch in the golden age of TV, before home videos and streaming video took over. I like, for example, an episode of Riverdale on the Netflix service, or another series that happens to have my fancy. While I don’t live on Netflix, I often make Netflix a go-to for streaming entertainment.

The BBC soap Eastenders has had a long, rich history going back to 1985, so I like to watch it if I want traditional television. My eighth birthday was that year, a time in life when family and friends are especially important. Since I’m now an adult and more prepared (than an eight-year-old), I appreciate following the stories in Eastenders. My rule of thumb, though, is only one episode per day.

Many days I like to put an hour into Twitter to get a fun peek at people’s hot takes and trending news. I even automate tweets, when topics I am interested in exploring come to light in the hands of capable writers. I occasionally edit the Facebook page for my dad’s cemetery business, which we run together. Sometimes I am specifically required.

https://www.facebook.com/LouthUnited/

I check a few TikToks, likely of the more original variety, often at least twenty of them. They are usually only a few seconds long.

Perhaps best of all, I chill with my girl. Having that bond is important, I think. Even if I devote a lot of time to technical pursuits, a human element can be supremely important.

Thanks for asking, bloganuary!

What do people incorrectly assume about you? #bloganuary

I think people sometimes assume that I’m confused. There are many times that my mind is not on matters at hand.

Photo by Matheus Ferrero on StockSnap

I also deal with an array of difficult situations. This month I updated my Twitter bio to include the phrase, “Avid problem solver.” It is meant as a joke. It doesn’t really strike me that funny, but it says, I guess, that I don’t mind obstacles. What people might take it for, as in what it’s about, is that I am kind of a rearranger, you might say. I look at what we got, and I try to improve upon it.

The reason people might not see that in me is that I can be a little brooding over life situations that are difficult for me. I’d say that a lot of the time, I am a happy person, but when the walls start to close in, I sometimes feel my best recourse is to get outside this place and to let a solution come to me. A hot shower is second to this.

I am a playful person, but I feel that I encounter irony frequently. The real-life sort of irony is kind of comical for me, and I don’t always have someone to share it with. Sometimes I am just admiring situations that are at hand in other people’s lives, and I feel better than it isn’t happening to me. But to even think about it, that’s the confusing part.

Many people, I suspect, desire mindfulness and self-awareness, compared to being in a state of confusion. I am not about getting confused, but confusion does occasionally happen. I am just trying to keep my mind on the job. I want to believe that I don’t appear to be confounded.

I have a good sense of humour.
