Google’s latest change in algorithm – Penguin 2.0 – was released on 22nd May 2013 and continues Google’s efforts to reduce the reach of spammy, poor content websites. So, what can you do to improve your SEO while making your website as reader-friendly as possible? The consensus is that a website built around high quality content, user-friendly, descriptive links that help navigation, and consistent use of social media can’t go far wrong. Of course, SEO is a competitive area and small businesses are often forced to play second fiddle to the big players, for whom Google may show more tolerance of suspect SEO tactics, simply because the company has an established reputation. By having a regularly updated blog or grouping similar content in the same section of your website, you can help customers access the information they need quickly and easily.
I’ve read quite a few online articles recently that make keyword research sound almost underhand or seedy.
In my experience, if you’ve found the right keywords for your business, they will occur naturally in your copy anyway.
Look at your website’s structure – is it easy to navigate or do people have to dig around your site to find what they need? Not sure where to start with keyword research? Ask your customers what words they would use to find you online or describe you to a friend. Remember to use your keywords in title tags, meta descriptions, alt tags and file photo names.
I always recommend using internal links in your blog posts if you’ve written about a related topic in the past. You’ve probably heard different advice about external back links from other websites to yours.
Since Google’s Panda and Penguin algorithm updates, poor quality back links should be avoided like the plague. Change any boring ‘Click here for further information’ links to descriptive and informative links that include the kinds of words people will be using when they search for information, i.e. Find opportunities to feature as a guest blogger on other websites that share the same target audience as you. Social media gives you an exciting opportunity to engage in conversation with your customers. One of the reasons I always advise clients to identify their ideal customer and their core brand messages is that it’s easier to be consistent across different platforms if you’re clear about what you want to say. Not every social media platform will be right for your business but it’s a good idea to find out where your ideal customers are hanging out and build a consistent presence on two or three key platforms. Approximately 46% of my website traffic comes in through social media and a significant proportion of enquiries begin with the sentence, “I’ve been following you on Facebook for a while and I love your posts…” This is the power of social media. Post a link to your blog on your social media platforms every week – you can even pull out bits of the content to make useful sound bites for Twitter or Facebook, for example. Can people easily share content they like to popular social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+? As I mentioned in my recent article about why getting to the top spot of Google shouldn’t be your only focus, attaining high page one rankings is a competitive arena.

Disciplined, well organised and extremely hard to break down, Newcastle have rarely looked like conceding throughout their six-game winning run, and aside from tipping over a Richard Dunne header, Tim Krul was barely tested against QPR.
In return, Wijnaldum has been quick to praise McClaren’s input throughout pre-season, with the Yorkshireman’s experience of the continental game enabling him to establish a strong rapport with his club’s overseas contingent. The actual story is one of trying to find somewhere safe to live for some poor INNOCENT young children, not whether some "concerned " residents feel slighted.

A home win against the same opponents and a victory away to bottom club Sunderland are Darlington's only wins in their last 14 games, having started with four wins from the first seven. He and Chris Rushworth quickly removed the home openers and it became 49 for three when replaced Arshad and struck with his fifth ball. The game was notable for the second-half appearance of Downing, with the England international kicking off his second spell at his hometown club in an attacking central-midfield role.
With the rest of the Boro squad currently on a training break in Marbella, it remains to be seen whether Downing heads straight out to Spain or remains at Rockliffe Park ahead of his new team-mates’ return next week.

While the West Nile virus is not new to Maryland, health officials warn people to take precautions when heading outside to parks or to the beach, especially areas where there might be standing water. However, even though the opportunity to return to Teesside after a two-year spell in London was a powerful attraction, Downing insists he would not have rejoined Boro if he did not believe they had a realistic chance of promotion. Dad, Ian, is director at the family-owned Barkers Furnishing Store in Yafforth Road, Northallerton, where earlier this year Hannah, along with brothers William and Thomas, cut the turf to get a £3m expansion of the business underway.

LIVING HISTORY— Chicano Park’s newly-restored murals are brighter and bolder than ever before say artists and afficionados from around the world. Todd Stands, an SWC adjunct photography instructor and accomplished artist, helped restore the murals and chronicled the process with his camera. Stands photographed the entire 18-month restoration, often climbing three-story high scaffolding to get the right position. Students worked on “Undocumented Workers,” inspired by one of Schnorr’s trips to Afghanistan. Stands said many original artists who could not help restore the murals themselves came to watch or had family and friends assist, he said. Nancy Curry, a Mexican-American Studies teacher at San Ysidro High School, said she was inspired by the experience. Chicano Park mural restoration projects were honored with the Grand Orchid Award last fall at the annual Orchid and Onions Awards ceremony at the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Arts. The mission of the Southwestern College Sun is to serve its campuses and their communities by providing information, insights and stimulating discussions of news, activities and topics relevant to our readers.

However,  Azeez Shobowale restored  the confidence of the home side in the 41st minute when he scored the equaliser after he controlled a long pass from Rabiu Ali. Pillars media officer Rilwanu Idris Malikawa disclosed the team will depart Kano Friday for Oghara, where they will face Bayelsa United on Sunday.
Duly impressed by the scores of vehicles she’d seen sporting “Choose Civility” car magnets, my new neighbor recently asked, “What, exactly, is Choose Civility?” As I happily explained it to her, I was thrilled to learn that she already knew that Howard County (Md.) Library System (HCLS) was somehow involved (see figure 1).
Choose Civility is a community-wide initiative that invites everyone in Howard County to choose respect, empathy, and consideration at every opportunity when interacting with others—at work and in their personal lives. Unfortunately, civility—or rather, incivility—has grabbed national headlines much more regularly in recent years. Congressman Joe Wilson’s “You lie!” outburst during President Obama’s health care speech displayed an unmatched level of uncivil behavior in a public setting. While the University of Arizona has established the National Institute for Civil Discourse to “promote compromise among opposing political parties and views,”1 Howard County’s Choose Civility campaign advances civility at the local level. Even before the word civility surfaced with some regularity in the press, those introduced to Choose Civility four years ago were quite taken with the concept, frequently expressing, “This should be a national movement!” The initiative has flourished far beyond our expectations, surprising everyone with its popularity and success. The second is that the initiative fits squarely within our mission of delivering high-quality public education for all ages. Our staff members found Forni’s presentation compelling and relevant on both the professional and personal levels.
Simultaneously, we developed a brand—a look and feel unique to Choose Civility, complete with colors, fonts, and a logo, all set forth for our Alliance Partners in a style guide that potential chapters in other jurisdictions may easily replicate. Choose Civility is a way to celebrate that we are a community that embraces civility, bringing visibility to what is already a key component of our quality of life. Held each October, Choose Civility Week provides a platform to position Choose Civility in the forefront. The entire community then comes together for the week’s highlight, the Choose Civility Symposium (see figure 3). Titled “The Role of Civility in Democracy,” last year’s symposium began with opening remarks from Howard County Executive Ken Ulman and Congressman Cummings.
Following the panel, Forni led a workshop that focused on the youth perspective of the role of civility in a democratic society. While Choose Civility Week generates abundant publicity, we also use a number of marketing tools year-round. In 2009, we produced a fifteen-second PSA that was shown in movie theaters prior to and during Choose Civility Week. In response to the last question, Joan Wangler, representing NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, responded, “Once you notice it, you notice it everywhere.
Our website includes upcoming events, ongoing activities, and Faces of Civility and HCPSS student posters, available for download. At HCLS, we developed three lists of civility-related books for children, teens, and adults. Classes, which HCLS instructors teach at our branches and take into the schools, include Choose Civility classes, such as Kindness Counts for the lower elementary grades. At Howard Community College, we participate in the Friendly Campus promotion each fall as faculty and staff welcome new students, who receive Choose Civility car magnets. HCPSS’s annual Choose Civility poster contest continues to inspire students to focus on civility. As a final example, Howard County’s Rotary Clubs joined forces to sponsor Choose Civility banners, which now hang in all HCPSS high school gyms and are displayed at football fields as a reminder for athletes, coaches, and spectators to choose civility at sporting events. Although more expensive than bumper stickers, we thought car magnets would be an effective (and fun) way to promote Choose Civility, as we thought more people would place them on their vehicles.


Deciding to make it easier for people, we added the website to our design when we placed our next order. Like the “Got Milk?” campaign, the Choose Civility car magnet has experienced copycat versions, spoofs, and parodies.
The HCLS Board of Trustees takes pride in HCLS’s leadership in such an important communitywide partnership. Some of you may be thinking, “How could we possibly take on something like this with all that we currently do?” The answer?
For instance, instead of teaching another Picture Book Parade preschool class, our instructors might instead schedule, “Choose Civility: Be Brave,” with the class description, “Whether a shining knight or a teddy bear, brave storybook characters help children face their fears through stories, songs, and activities. It is true that the public relations staff will require some startup time to develop your Choose Civility chapter, and to plan a kickoff inviting your elected officials, civic leaders, and community members.
It also takes a bit of effort to convene a Choose Civility Board of Advisors meeting, but we hold those only twice a year, and the annual commitment to renew as an Alliance Partner requires that someone on staff generate and send the certificates. We hope you will consider starting a Choose Civility chapter in your area and that you would like to capitalize on the model we have created.

It shows that you understand your customers’ pain points, the problems you can solve or the ways you can improve their lives. Quality means structuring, writing and designing every aspect of your website with the customer experience at the forefront of your mind. Certainly, Google’s algorithms are (thankfully) spelling the end of poor quality, keyword heavy sites that show no consideration of the reader’s experience. For me, keyword research is all about identifying the words that your customers will use to find you. The search engines don’t just look for the exact words and phrases but vocabulary that is associated with them too. Does it connect with them emotionally? They probably don’t want to know the details of what you do, just what the outcome is going to be for them.
Why not brainstorm some ideas for key topics that you can write about with confidence (or task an experienced copywriter to do it for you), then you can plan to update your content regularly? Brainstorm ideas and then use Google AdWord’s free keyword planner tool to look at whether people are searching for those terms.
Instead of saying something bland and uninformative, like ‘Click here for further information’, a descriptive link such as ‘Decide which of my affordable business blogging packages is right for you’ can help search engine spiders identify what your web page is about (e.g. In the past, people used to pay (often vast amounts of money) for a back link service that bought them numerous links from unrelated websites; it was very much a numbers game.

Because in an increasingly fragmented world where relationships tend to be conducted through social media, civility connects and unites us on a personal level. Choose Civility intends to encourage the conscious choice of civility, which results in lowered stress levels, improved health, and increased happiness. We communicate with our partners, chair the Choose Civility Board of Advisors, and organize Choose Civility Week activities each October.
Incidents from the realms of politics, sports, and entertainment occurred almost simultaneously in September 2009. Early on, the Choose Civility founding partners recognized that one organization would need to take the lead, as is typically the case in any successful venture.
Choose Civility aligns with all three pillars of our curriculum (see figure 2).2 Under the first pillar, Self-Directed Education, our collection includes civility-related materials for all ages in a wide variety of genres and formats.
In addition to the satisfaction of continuing to contribute to the enhancement of our community’s quality of life, we are viewed by all as not only the Choose Civility catalyst, but also the initiative’s epicenter—and center stage is right where we want to be!
While inspired by Forni’s book, Choose Civility includes many civility-themed books, including fiction and nonfiction titles for children, teens, and adults.
Did something happen?” At first, this question took us by surprise, as no incident had prompted the initiative. HCLS provides leadership and direction for the initiative, as well as in-kind support for project and communications management, and fundraising. The Board of Advisors comprises fifteen to twenty business and community leaders who guide the strategic, visionary, and goal-oriented aspects of the initiative. Four steering committees guide, develop, and support the initiative in the areas of partnerships, sponsorship development, event and activities planning, and marketing.
Critical to the success of Choose Civility, Alliance Partners include businesses, organizations, government agencies, and individuals who extend the initiative’s reach to build awareness and involvement.
The Ambassador category includes businesses, organizations, and government agencies that embrace Choose Civility.
Advocates comprise individuals or organizations who wish to be involved and embrace the goodwill and principles of Choose Civility.
Critical for building awareness and sustainable support of Choose Civility, media sponsors provide in-kind support.

Past symposiums have featured keynote speakers, including Forni and former Baltimore Colts defensive lineman Joe Ehrmann, whose remarkable career was captured in the book The Season of Life. More than 300 guests then heard from a panel of civility experts moderated by NPR journalist Korva Coleman.
In partnership with HCPSS’s secondary education social studies division and Student Government Association, we heard the voice of young adults as they crafted a Proclamation of Civil Behavior—ideas and principles of civility to guide their lives. Last year, we asked symposium attendees a series of short questions that were compiled into a two-minute video posted to our YouTube channel.
The site also describes the initiative’s structure, lists Alliance Partners, and provides a page for purchasing magnets and window decals.
These are distributed through our branches and are available through both the HCLS and Choose Civility website, downloadable as PDFs. For example, Battle of the Books, an annual academic reading competition for fifth-grade students, includes a civility component: in addition to first, second, and third place, students win awards for best costume, best team name, best team spirit, and most civil. We also work with HCC by presenting civility-related seminars taught by faculty members at HCLS branches. While supporting student academic success, the initiative also furthers HCPSS’s goal of providing a safe and nurturing environment for its students.
This year’s theme was “Choose Civility on the Web.” Julie Wang, a fifth-grade student from Centennial Elementary School, took first place (see figure 5).

Instead of creating booklists for something else, create some for Choose Civility (even better, save time by building on the ones we’ve developed and posted).
As to Choose Civility Week and the symposium, again, we would be holding a different event (such as an author event) if it weren’t for the symposium; so here, again, the time invested is simply shifted to this priority.
We could be viewed as both catalysts and epicenters in the civility arena, creating community in unprecedented ways.
Then imagine going to New York—or Dallas, Chicago, or Miami—and noticing a Choose Civility car magnet. Mary Baykan, director of the Washington County Free Library and I would be delighted to answer any questions you might have.

It also demonstrates your expertise and the reason yours is the ‘go-to’ company in your field. However, I believe that keyword research is still an essential part of creating a good website. You might think of yourself as a ‘positivity guru’ or ‘change metamorphosist’ but the chances are that your potential customers will be searching for a ‘life coach’. Forget about keyword densities and concentrate on writing relevant content, as well as using keywords intelligently to improve signposting and navigation. People still attempt to create back links by leaving those annoying spammy comments on your blog (make sure you always moderate your comments or use a good spam filter plugin to prevent this). It wants to know that people are commenting on, sharing and linking back to your content because you have something to say that offers value to readers.
