Understanding SEO a crucial skill for web developers


The data society that has developed around the web provides us with many career and business opportunities. These opportunities are only as good as the skills you can provide to meet the modern demands of businesses and entrepreneurs. Don’t think in a straight line when planning and structuring the growth of your career.

The more skills you develop and can apply, the more useful you become in this age of data. One of the biggest mistakes a professional can make is when they limit their knowledge and understanding. Have you thought about improving your knowledge of search engine optimization and how it can be applied into the framework of web development?

You’re miles ahead of the competition if you have.

Let’s take a closer look at a few more reasons for diversifying your skills with optimization and to expand the value you bring to the table as a professional in web development.

Development of any kind requires that you provide written coordinates that then end in an expected outcome. These results are rarely straight forward; you often need to make adjustment after adjustment to achieve the intended outcome. The same is true for creating web projects and seeing your objectives come to fruition. The work of optimization requires a continual adjustment.

You never truly know how things will render until you write the HTML code and then see how your website turns out. This troubleshooting process is why you should consider diversifying for your skills. Knowing just a little more about search engine optimization gives the code you write greater trajectory.

You can then formulate more in-depth theories by being able to process the steps search engine optimization is intended for but that are often given to someone else.

What we know about online marketing brings both optimization and HTML together into one seamless bundle. You can peak your search optimization strategies when applying them directly through HTML. Being able to render anything through common web browsers requires this language.

The reason optimization holds ground is demand, it plays a large role in setting the standards of how marketers are allowed to work. The protocol of the search algorithm forces marketers to play by a game of words, and these methods have thus built the foundation of many processes online. There’s no escaping search engines as a result, and why you should seriously consider using them.

Being a high-profile professional will call on your ability to meet demands or to excel beyond those expectations. Doing this provides you with more opportunities and the potential to increase what you’re worth. Sitting on the sidelines when it comes to search engine optimization could be a factor holding you back. Don’t let it.

A professional’s work relies on the demands that consumers have and our ability to go beyond those standards. Doing so is also about working on a competitive level that many in web development can’t reach. Providing web development along with a clear understanding of how optimization works makes you a valuable asset for contextual link buiding.

Search engines can be complicated machines if you don’t have the knowledge-base for them. Having this knowledge gives you a broader presentation of skills to use to your benefit. An effective resume provides a client or employer with a thorough look at the work you can do.

You must provide a work history to also show what you’ve done, and being effective with search engines becomes a plus during the job hunt. Don’t be discouraged about learning new skills and presenting a wide spectrum of abilities. You never know exactly what will make you stand out from the competition or what an agency is looking for.

You will only improve your optimization coding if you can already write in HTML. The knowledge you acquire about the search engines will allow you to bring your HTML and link building to a higher competency. There are specific areas in HTML that can be endlessly improved on as long as you brush up on your optimization.

Getting the most out of search engines does require an impressive depth of understanding and best done through an SEO agency. Don’t regard search engines as a superficial component in how web development can work. You must take the basics and continue to build upon them by establishing an effective strategy.

Strategies will provide your clients with results and a clear view as to why optimization works and why you need to incorporate it for them

Here are the basic steps you want to master when applying effective strategies:

– Keywords:

There are a lot of misconceptions about how keywords work and how important they are. Just think in terms of themes. You want to set themes for your clients’ websites and then have those themes further expanded on through high quality content. The search engines will then categorize that site based on the fundamental words used.

– The First One Hundred Words:

Every page should leverage keywords within the first 100 words. The first sentence is also optimal, but you want to take advantage of the crawling that the engines undergo. This process is one where web technology scans the first one hundred words to get a gist of the theme and to confirm that a platform follows that theme.

– Title Tags:

These tags turn into actual headlines that will appear on search engine result pages. These headlines need keyword optimization. More importantly, they need to speak directly to the reader and to peak their interest for optimal results.

The above are just a few key areas to maximize your search engine optimization through. The central point to take away is that diversifying your knowledge will provide you with greater opportunities. You’ll be able to offer greater results and to build a track-record that can’t be refuted when expanding your career.

Consider that expansion now, and create a brighter future for your dreams.


The Shining Lights of the Jewelry Business: Beckoning Changes and Premises

10672_1532001446_Jewellery Making.jpg

For men and women alike, looking good and leaving the right impression on others is an important part of modern life and jewelry has always been a non-debatable part of such an effort. Jewelry business has thus remained in the spotlight throughout the centuries, making it possible for people of all income levels to purchase products that make them shine. Ranging from simple gold and silver items to more sophisticated products, such as emerald, jade or pearl jewelry, the market is always full of options, making it a matter of financial capability and market access for people to acquire products in accordance with their taste and preference.

E-commerce is a field of business that has gained significant amounts of acceptance and popularity in recent years, leading Tirath Kamdar to found TrueFacet, an online platform that enables jewelry buyers to connect with suppliers of high quality and pre-owned items. Coming from a jewelry dealing family, Kamdar teamed up with his partner Chris Chan to utilize his past endeavors with hedge funding to kick-start the project in 2013. Kamdar believes that the main problem in the market with respect to efficiency is that prices fluctuate from one store to another, making it impossible for the customer to develop trust in the market’s dynamics. The TrueFacet algorithm enables sellers to either place their products on consignment or directly market them to buyers, while the built-in trading software enables users to trade items for credit. Housing 28 appraisers in the US currently, the system also has a strict counterfeiting policy, requiring a TrueFacet certification of authenticity before allowing any seller to make sales or receive payments. TrueFacet developers work with the appraisers in this pursuit, keeping a close eye on the authenticity and quality of the products being sold over the platform.

Jennifer Fisher Jewelry is one of the most successful upstarts in jewelry business in recent years and the company’s success has gained the New York based designer a respected voice over competitors. Fisher was introduced to jewelry business after her son Shane was born when she could not find unique jewelry items to signify him, leading her to design her own pieces dedicated to him. Entering the custom jewelry business, Fisher took notice of the ‘personalization’ trend in the market for which no large establishment was producing any products. As her customer base grew, she began to spend more time on design and artisanship to add quality to her products. Developing a more serious business strategy, Fisher divided her accounts in various New York stores to sell her brass items separately, while also starting her own e-commerce site and a showroom to sell her finer jewelry products. This strategy increased her sales because interested buyers knew exactly where to go to and what to look for, finishing their purchases within a couple of minutes. As the brass pieces continued to dominate prestigious stores and outlets, the showroom and website promoted her more personal and artistic pieces to add more value to her charm as a unique designer and producer of jewelry.

More success stories are to be found in the market and Adina Kamkhatchi is a recent addition to innovators in the field. During her college years at Brooklyn College, Kamkhatchi grew interest in jewelry but could not afford high quality items and did not wish to settle down on low-quality ones just because they were cheaper. Using $1,000 of her own money, she bought supplies to start her production at her parents’ house, initiating ‘Adina’s Jewels’ in the process. Upon completing a sufficient number of pieces, Kamkhatchi began to sell her products going from door to door in New York City and eventually decided to sell them at a local hair salon in her neighborhood. Her business took off and turned into a multi-million dollar revenue generator in only four years, leading her to open a store in Brooklyn, start a website selling 600 different types of products online, using celebrity friends such as Ariana Grande, Emily Ratajkowski and Gigi Hadid posing with her jewelry for the company’s catalog. Meanwhile, her brother Mayer’s addition to the company strengthened the marketing aspect of her business, as successful blog promotions led to an incredible number of 140,000 authentic followers on the company’s Instagram page, consisting of actual customers aged between 18 and 34.

Edtech on the rise with A.I.


Education is always a consistent topic in the media and in general. With each passing year, other aspects of life go in and out of focus. Not every industry continuously receives such immense attention, but education is one of the most prominent aspects of most of our lives. As such, it makes all the sense in the world that we are constantly talking about it, forever watching the industry evolve and realign. Today, technological disruption has found its place in education.

Even universities have kick-started fully-integrated websites to bring more traffic – and, hopefully, more enrolments – to their campuses and online course intakes. Now, they do it all, from searching for an accredited search engine optimisation company to help them make the most of their digital impact, to using their websites to brilliantly showcase the latest tech that makes them different from the other universities that students-to-be may be considering.

Technology has found its way into practically every industry in the modern world, but with education the burn has been slower. A sector that was built on the most traditional of foundations, education was not at first accepting of the technological advancements that were being offered to enhance the industry. Technology in education (or, EdTech) has been making waves in recent months. Though the concept has slowly been making its way into the scopes of reality for a few years, it has just recently burst through the ceiling and risen yet again to new peaks.

Capitalising on students’ digital habits

The students of today were born in a world where digitisation has been present in practically every aspect of life. From the way that they communicate to the way they excel in their interests, it seems that technological advancement and digitalisation are ingrained in the modern student. The education sector has noted this digital gravitation, and is bringing in technology to appeal to the modern student.

Making learning more interactive

Digital transformation has been slowly but surely making its way into the education sector for some time now. The current EdTech innovations that are making waves in the education industry include (but are not limited to) the revolutionary movement of the digital classroom, making learning sources digital, and working to make learning more interactive. EdTech is designed to cater to the modern student, and the modern student craves exciting and fun interactions that both work with their digital habits and enhance their learning experiences.

The vision for artificial intelligence in education

Artificial intelligence (AI) is still in its developing stages and thus has not made it into the education sector in any major ways just yet. Even so, the future of AI in education cannot be overstated. Robots that teach classes are in the distant future, but having computer-based tutoring methods driven by AI is an innovation that is perhaps not so far away from becoming a reality. This is just one incredible innovation of EdTech set to revolutionise the education sector, but it is one of the most notable.

Additionally, there is the introduction of a chatbot-based principle on university websites that helps students with queries, freeing up the need for long phone calls waiting to speak to someone, or having to go into campus to get advice. EdTech is based on making education easier, the AI is set to be an extraordinary leap towards making that the reality for students around the world.

The fundamentals of web development in 2018


Getting the online representation of a brand is so important to the brand’s potential for longevity, and while most brands have a strong sense of what they want their business to look like, to feel like, to represent, what many lack is the knowledge of how to bring that vision to life in its brightest, most engaging form – this is why web development companies such as Lilo have become prevalent in the industry.

Online presence is all about user engagement. Without web content that is user-friendly, informative, and exciting, most online businesses barely survive. In this tech-driven era, the value of digital marketing companies has never been higher. While clean cut design elements with lengthy coding behind them used to be the primary drivers in web development, 2018 is revolutionising the game, literally disrupting the traditional methods of web development and turning them on their heads. As users become more digitally dependent, they respond more to visual content that is easy to navigate, rather than highly informative but text-heavy web pages. There are four key drivers that, if used correctly, will revolutionised your online brand.

SEO landing pages is an interesting concept because it has changed so much since its initial inception. While SEO has historically been used to satisfy search algorithms (as large blocks of text) it has begun to shift and change in recent times. Google now caters specifically to the user experience, and as such digital marketing teams must rely on more than text-dominant pages if they want their work to rank.

Think of it this way: When a user clicks onto your web page, you have ten seconds to engage them before they opt out. Users typically read 20% of a page, so wasting precious SEO implementation by having large blocks of writing makes no sense. Instead, use the design elements to make that 20% guide the visitor to other areas of the website or other elements on the web page. SEO is changing, and you must now use more advanced design elements than simple text engagement – in a visual world, text is not always enough (especially online).

The power of animation is very much real, and in 2018 it is literally bursting into fruition as more and more online brands are finding it to be of great use to their digital marketing campaigns and overall online presence. Users love interactivity, and animation is the epitome of the concept. As users browse your website, they can feel included in the brand’s story – particularly when they first land on the homepage of your website. Gone are the days that brands used text to convey complicated messages, leaving mass reading for the user. 2018 is all about visual engagement, and animation is the dark horse in the arena.

Users thrive on visual content. While this is not a new concept, it has only recently begun to take shape as a key concept for user engagement. 65% of people are visual learners. It is no longer enough to hope to draw in users with text alone. While text and visual elements can and often do work together in perfect harmony, visual prompts like high quality photographs and videos engage the reader by laying the story out for them aesthetically, making it easier than ever for users to feel included, engaged with, and interacted with.

I’ll say it again for the people in the back: visual representation (both moving and still) is the number one in web development in 2018. You shouldn’t only want it, you actually need it.

Web apps pretty much speak for themselves. 89% of total mobile use for most people is spent browsing web applications. While a lot of brands have yet to expand their online presence to apps as well as websites, they must do so to become key players in the game. Users want ease of access, and attempting to navigate a website from their mobile device is often frustrating. A progressive web app will take out the frustration and effortlessly transition it into ease of access – placing your brand at the top of user-friendly concepts and interactivity.

The importance of keeping up with live video digital trends


What used to be just keeping up with current events and consumer likes has been revolutionized by the digital era. The digital age of consumer information is not only beneficial for marketers and advertisers, but it is a great way for news outlets to dissent information to their followers. Essentially, everyone is now a present day journalist. Keeping up with consumer trends is necessary for marketers to understand how to interact with their audiences and direct messages toward them. These types of trends are continually changing, but some recent trends may be the key to digital marketers understanding how to keep consumer interest while maintaining a positive brand recognition. Companies and businesses with a commercial lease agreement can monitor consumer digital behavior behind their own screens by investing in a data analyst to record and present information to the marketing team.

Since social networking is all about updating in real time, it’s important that marketers cultivate a thorough skill set in utilizing live video as a means of communicating with their consumer audience. Some consumers use live video to record events, parades, or special happenings going on around them at that time. For consumers who may have a small business, they tend to utilize live video to communicate what products they are selling. Many multilevel marketing businesses now encourage their employees to utilizing live video as a way of explaining products and interacting potential customers. For some, they use live video as just a way to talk to their followers like a Youtube account. Live video is much more trendy than just recording and uploading videos because not only does it happen in real time, but it also allows the option for other users to interact with the content. They can post or react. The reactions that consumers post may change the direction of conversation from the person posting the video. Often the person posting the live video will read the content streaming in and answer any questions, comments, or concerns that someone has. Businesses aren’t the only ones using online video to gain a trusting follower base, some sites actually post live video of court hearings. Rather than watching C SPAN, audiences may now login to their web browser to view court hearings. Many churches will post live videos of sermons for those unable to attend Sunday morning services. Some orchestras and symphonies will use live video to post their performances. This is beneficial for parents and loved ones that are unable to attend the performance. It’s not just about selling or showing a large event to audiences, it’s about knowing who the audience is and what type of content they want to see. All of these differing ways to use live video can give digital marketers insight on where, when and how to incorporate this tactic into their marketing strategies. Marketers will prove successful in their application and implementation phase of live video if they first foster an thorough understanding of their target audience and the type of consumers they are marketing to.

The importance of embracing technology for security measures


There is no getting around the fact that the world has become more digitally-focused as the years have passed. Entire industries have changed their core values to realign and coincide with the modern world. Where education used to be solely on-campus, it is now available both traditionally and online. The healthcare industry has embraced technology and used it to strengthen its data storage systems and medical outlook.

Businesses around the world market digitally now, having realised the scope for consumer impact is much stronger and widespread online. As industries have evolved, so too have the prospective risks involved with having a business. There is a lot of emphasis around protecting stores electronically, but there are still break-ins that should also be actively protected against.

Thankfully, there are multiple effective security measures that can be put in place to protect your business, including security shutters, built-in security systems, and screen door protectors. The security of most shops is quite high, but for some business owners, it pays to know where to start when it comes to ensuring the security of your story.

Start with the locks

The most obvious security measure should always be locks. Even though it seems like common sense to most people, there are some store owners who either have broken locks they have not bothered to get fixed, or they have no locks in place at all. Simply put, a lock is your first defence against break-ins – thieves cannot plunder your store if they cannot get in to begin with.

Locking the entry points to the building is important, but so is locking any exterior property entry points, such as gates or roller doors, for example. Every potential entry point should have a good quality locking mechanism in place. It is a simple fix, and failure to adhere can lead to break-ins that, ultimately, could have been avoided had the property been locked up adequately.

Turn a light on

Burglars tend to be drawn to dark places where, assuming there is a security camera on the premises, it would be difficult to see them and pinpoint definitively who they are, should they be caught. The logic behind makes sense, as does the solution for weeding out thieves as they approach.

For this reason, leaving a light on at the property is a smart, quick solution that will not cost you an arm and a leg to install or keep functioning. The cost of a single light being on every night is miniscule in most locations, and regardless is still worth it for the peace of mind.

Keep valuables offsite or locked in a safe

Obviously, some valuables like desktops and televisions are not able to be moved offsite every day when the store closes, but for things like the money in the cash register and any bank information that can be easily moved, it is highly advisable to either store them in the safe for safe keeping, or move them offsite when you leave for the day.

Improving engagement a crucial aspect in digital marketing


Social media has dramatically changed the landscape for strategy and how businesses, and influencers engage with folks like you and me. With social media having considerable influence on our purchase decisions and buying behaviour, social media marketing is essential to building your brand and standing out in today’s competitive space.

Australia’s New Facial Recognition Laws – What they mean for you


A Justice Ministry report dating back to 2015, announced the plans by the Australian Government to implement a facial recognition technology. In their report, the government had allocated $18.5 to fund the project which was given an odd name – “the Capability.” The project which was kick-started in September 2015, was anticipated to cross-check millions of faces at a time. The system would use random faces and reference them to up to four registered user images of residents, including photos from driving licenses, passports, national IDs as well as shots from CCTV footage. However, it was shocking that no one was alarmed by the project plans – making the project unveil smoothly.

Developments of the Facial Recognition system advanced in February this year when Peter Dutton, the then newly elected Minister for Home Affairs introduced two Bills to the House of Representatives. The first Bill was to allow for the creation of a Facial recognition system. The other Bill was to enable the Department of Home Affairs to run the program – to help communicate between various intelligence agencies.

Moreover, according to ABC, facial recognition technology is already in use at a Crown Casino located in Melbourne. The system works by identifying important guests (VIP) and banned guests as well. Besides, the South Australian Police is also already using the face-recognition system to look for missing persons.

What this means for you – Privacy concerns

It is, without doubt, a matter of privacy concern – filing faces of each resident is alarming. And as for the privacy counsellors, they will argue that these radical moves are stripping away. Citing testimonies from private groups, John Lawrence contends that the move is utterly inappropriate and a betrayal of fundamental civil liberty of all Australian residents. John also says. “If implemented, it will ensure that the presumption of innocence no longer has any effective meaning in this country. Such an untargeted, mass surveillance database is just the latest attempt by governments to categorise everyone as potential suspects, not citizens.”

According to Singleton Norton, chair of Digital Rights Watch, he argues that the move for facial recognition will require citizens to trust the government to protect user data. In addition, Stephen Banks claimed that people still don’t know the implication so of facial recognition in their lives. He adds his fears that the new era will change the people’s behavior. Moreover, he voices his worries that by the time Australian residents realise what has happened to them, it will already be too late.

Possible data breaches?

In the past, we’ve cited several inter-agency data breaches, including the Australian Federal Police in 2017, the Australian Bureau of Statistics in 2016, as we as the Department of Immigration and Border Protection in 2016 too. All this data breaches happened in the post facial recognition period, implying that the government should have upgraded its security systems by then.

It is shocking at how the government official choose to fight back with worrying statements. For instance, Turnbull when questioned about the possible data breaches on the new face recognition systems, he argues that there is already “enormous amount” of personal data leaked already. According to him, more personal data has already been leaked in the past, than it will in the future – a classic showdown at how much the government cares about your data. “The vast bulk of it is actually in the private sector and most of it, if you think about the amount of personal data, photographs and so forth, that are held on Facebook accounts, I think around three-quarters of Australians have Facebook accounts, so there is a lot of data out there,” Turnbull says.

What are Fake IDs – its effects on facial recognition

Fake IDs always tend to use a fake identity of another person, or details belonging to a different person. In addition, a fake ID can be used to hide the known physical appearance of an individual, by altering their looks and changing their names and addresses.

The practice of using fake IDs has always existed over the years, and no government agency has been able to curb the practice. According to a study, there is a 14% error chance of systems scanning for IDs in a public station, to report a fake ID in use. Meaning, to date we still don’t have an ideal system for eradicating the use of fake IDs in Australia. And until the Australian authorities decide to take action against sites that openly sell fake IDs, then facial recognition system will not be a long term solution.

Setting up a funeral home business: 5 things you should know


As someone rightly said, “There is nothing certain in life except death and taxes,” therefore funeral service-related businesses are always going to be around and in-demand. While it isn’t for everyone, running a funeral home warrant for a special set of skills and personality traits. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median yearly salary of funeral home operators was found to be $52,210, although self-employed funeral home operators may earn more.

If a career in funeral home management sounds appealing to you, here’s a quick checklist of things you should keep in mind:

  • Training and Licensing:
    College mortuary science courses last anywhere between 2 to 4 years, not including the mandatory post-graduation apprenticeship. You will be required to master the common funeral service practices, like embalming, for example. Remember, the training and licensing requirements differ from place to place, so don’t forget to look up the criterion for running your own business in the funeral service industry.
  • Personal Characteristics:
    As a funeral director, you will be constantly expected to be patient and understanding, as most of your clientele will include people who are processing their grief over a loved one passing away. Not only should you be at ease working with cadavers in different states of disfigurement, but should also be sympathetic in your approach while handling a business transaction.
  • Managerial Skills:
    Apart from the usual people skills needed to support multiple grieving clients, you must also have dependable managerial skills to keep the business afloat. You will not only supervise and guide a bunch of employees (mostly in marketing and accounting) to perform various tasks related to the last rites.
  • Marketing Difficulties:
    In several cases, funeral homes are passed down from one generation of the families to the other, leading to a closely-knit, strongly established community of peers who’d be happy to put in a good word for you if they’re treated right. If you’re starting the business from scratch, you will be battling against other niche-specific owners and would require developing an inventive marketing strategy, in order to draw in more business and establish a trustworthy image.
  • Pre-Planning:

Various funeral homes offer extended pre-planning services, where people can arrange for their own funeral when their time comes in the future. Having strong sales skills and being tactful is of prime importance in the funeral service industry. Since most people like to shop around to discover the best deals, you must offer multiple products and services at contentious prices to stand out from the crowd.

Remember, one way to honour the deceased party is to ensure that the wake and funeral as centred on their close family and friends as possible. Pay attention to details, including the deceased’s profession, favourite hobbies, or any particular holidays or place that they enjoyed. Use all of this information to personalize the event, for example, be mindful of the religious symbols you use, or put up a small representation of their pictures/ mementoes of their employment on the funeral notices. 

Lastly, a person’s life (and death) will significantly impact many people, and an ideal funeral service will be respectful of all the parties involved.

Finding a lawyer similar to dating

Navigating the world of law can be overwhelming. This is one of the main reasons you need to find the best lawyer for the situation at hand. The issue is finding a lawyer that you can trust and one that you feel can make the best decisions for you.

Depending on the situation, you could be working with this lawyer for quite some time. Find a lawyer who is easy to talk to and you feel that relates to you well. One way to do this is by calling local lawyers just to discuss what their process is and what they are about. Frame this as a “getting to know you” call so that stakes are low and it can be more conversational.

Lawyers also would prefer clients that they relate to. This overall makes communication simpler and better for both parties. Take this into consideration next time you need a lawyer. Maybe even schedule a time to tour the office and get a feel of how they interact as a firm. Getting the best read you can on your potential lawyer is essential to making an effective decision.

Many law firms have clear specialties or unspoken specialties. There is a wide variety of lawyers that specialize in a specific niche, such as a criminal lawyer, property lawyer, or even licensed insolvency trustee. Regardless, it is best to figure out the lawyers that are best for the case at hand. Law practices such as Maurice Blackburn lawyers are great for anyone in Australia. They have some of the best lawyers in the country, so be sure to look there first if you are in the market.

There are so many kinds of law. This is another reason it is best to find the best lawyer for your case. Finding the best lawyer around might seem like a good idea, but if they don’t have experience in a certain area, this can be detrimental. Pay attention to lawyers who specialize in certain cases. This is a sure way to set your case up for success.

When hiring a lawyer, it is best to be transparent upfront about how much you are looking to spend. It also is essential that they outline their exact costs and what they charge for certain parts of the process. Lawyer fees can get quite expensive. In some more black and white cases, look for some less expensive lawyers who can still win your case easily. This is a question to bring up in your searching process. Speak to officials at the law offices and ask about their pricing options and ranges.

You might be willing to spend a lot more if it is a serious case that you really need to win. This is when you need to be realistic on how much it could cost. Getting a lawyer who is the best of the best can cost a lot, but overall will be worth it because your case will be in the best hands.

Treat lawyer searching like dating. Know what you want and don’t want and be transparent in this process. You will be sure to find the best lawyer for you and your case.
