Are You Stressed and Overthinking Content Marketing?

It’s simple, right? You write blog posts, post them and sit back wondering how they’re being received. You’ve been producing great content regularly, but your beginning to wonder about the promotional buy windows 10 key aspect. Is your content marketing effective?

It’s true that creating engaging content and measuring its effectiveness is an obstacle every content marketer faces. While content marketing can do so many things for your business, it’s possible that your stressing over it too much. To make sure you’re getting the most out of your work – and not losing sleep at night – consider the following ways you can fix any content marketing issues:

Don’t Overthink Things

Setting unrealistic goals can make you feel as though you’ve failed. Not every piece of content will be perfect and earth-shattering, nor does it have to be. Concentrate on other objectives for your content; it should be useful, insightful, engaging, etc. Ultimately, you want to connect with your audience.

Create a Strategy

Like anything else in your business, content marketing needs a plan. Creating a strategy will help you quickly decide what content to focus on and what needs to be rejected. Don’t waste your valuable time on things that don’t really matter. Start by asking yourself the right questions:

  • Who are you trying to connect with? Identify your audience, and learn what they are worried about.
  • What are you trying to achieve? You want to sell more, but how? Brand awareness? Customer education?
  • What are you wanting the results to be? Track metrics, and adjust your efforts as needed.

Utilize the Right Tools

According to Vice President of Culture and Experience, Katie Burke, “It’s not enough to just pick some tools and hope they solve all your problems.”

When integrating platforms, a company must also invest time into learning about them; this includes identifying and finding the talent required to use them. For many companies this can be a bit scary – it means big changes within the organization. Just make sure that your spending is resulting in improvements.

“If you’re going to make the investment, commit your organization to finding solutions that fit in with your content strategy and integrate microsoftproductssettlement seamlessly with your other platforms,” says Forbes contributor, Mary Ellen Slayter.

Choosing the right tools goes beyond content marketing; it’s important for every aspect of your business. For example, your choice of business funding really does matter. Whether it’s tailored to your specific needs or not ultimately affects the success of other areas – like content marketing. When seeking options to fund your business plans, consider the options a high risk provider like First American Merchant can offer you. Be open to researching all of your options, and devote the time necessary to do so thoroughly.

Above all, whether it’s business funding, content marketing or choosing a platform, make sure you’re focus is on value. If you do that, you can’t go wrong.

Holy Trinity Church, Barnstaple
Website Directory
Image by Robert Cutts (pandrcutts)
The most striking feature of this church is its tower. To quote from a Devon County Council website (about half way down the page):–
"Holy Trinity church, originally built in 1847 (Mackintosh, architect), has a very handsome tower in the Somerset style, but the rest of the church had to be rebuilt in 1868 because of bad foundations and is dull."

An article about Holy Trinity in the August 1845 issue of the Gentleman’s Magazine, which can be viewed here, confirms that the architect was David Mackintosh – and gives the proposed height of the tower as 156 ft. The description of the church given in the article suggests that, at least at the time it was built, it was far from "dull".

In Sussex Parish Churches John Allen writes these words of Mackintosh:–
"David Mackintosh (c1815*-1858/59) was a Scot, who signed himself in 1847 as ‘Architect of Exeter and London’ on the plan of St Margaret’s, Ifield submitted to the ICBS. In 1850 he was at 11 Verney Place, Exeter (White’s Directory of Devon). The 1851 census lists only Christina Mackintosh there (born in 1801/02 in Scotland), but a surveyor and builder of the same name in lodgings at Barnstaple (born in Edinburgh), was presumably the same man on his travels – he had designed Holy Trinity church there in 1846. He worked extensively in the county, mostly on the restoration or reconstruction of churches, one of them in the romanesque style, but also designed at least one large house. He died in Exeter at his home in Verney Place."

The Gentleman’s Magazine and Historical Review of July 1859 records on page 318 (14 lines from bottom right) the death at Verney Place, Exeter, in September (presumably 1858) of David Mackintosh, esq, architect, aged 42. This is reasonably consistent with his having been born in 1815 *.

Mackintosh was responsible for the restoration of the Church of St Michael and All Angels, Heavitree, Exeter at about the same time as his work on the Holy Trinity. The tower of St Michael’s is probably entirely his work as it looks pretty similar to that of Holy Trinity. The church is described in Exeter memories.

Another church in which Mackintosh’s influence can be seen lies 10 km or so west of Holy Trinity. St Margaret’s, Northam, was in a sorry state in 1853 when Mackintosh was hired as the architect in a project for its restoration. In his article on the church which may be viewed here, David Gale confirms the date of his death and adds that he died from "the effects of inflammation of the lungs." The photo of St Margaret’s which can be seen on the Northam website shows that it too has a tall tower, though it’s not as tall as that of Holy Trinity – and it was built several centuries before Mackintosh’s time.

At Stoke by Hartland, 20 km further west of Northam, yet another example of Mackintosh’s restoration work can be seen. His involvement with St Nectan’s Church in that village took place during 1848. Read more about the church here and take a look at Robert Frost’s comprehensive photographic record of the church.

I believe that the Grade I listed church of St Mary and St Martin in the parish of Chudleigh, Teignbridge also in Devon was yet another Mackintosh restoration. The evidence for my belief is here. As Alan Rosevear’s photo shows, the tower is not in the Mackintosh tradion at all. It must be part of the original structure.

Greinton House, in the village of Greinton near Ashcott in Somerset, is certainly a Mackintosh design. When built it was within the grounds of Greinton Church but it’s now a guesthouse and is on the other side of the main road through the village. There’s more about it here and there’s a photo of it here.

Mackintosh also had a hand in the restoration in the early 1850s of the building known as Affeton Castle in East Worlington, Crediton, Devon. In fact it isn’t really a castle, just a gatehoouse – though a very imposing one.

Perhaps the most important building designed by David Mackintosh is the Mariners’ Home in Greenock. It’s stated here that the architect was Robert Macintosh of Exeter. But there’s a reference here to a 19th-century lithograph which shows a view of Sir Gabriel Wood’s Mariners’ Asylum, Greenock with, printed on the base, ‘David Mackintosh Architect Exeter’.

And from where did Mackintosh get the inspiration for his towers? Maybe it was from the Cathedral of the Moors in Widecombe in the Moor, South Devon.

My thanks to John Allen of Sussex Parish Churches for allowing me to reproduce the passage about David Mackintosh (3rd paragraph).

Robert Cutts, January 2010.

* Evidence has come to light which suggests that David Mackintosh was born in c1802 rather than c1815. RDC, April 2012

We all know that when opening and running a business or potential money making website online requires much active marketing and advertising unlike opening a brick and mortar shop. When you open a physical store you can bet on getting potential customers free of marketing cost. Your store has a location either near or by a street or within a market setting such as a shopping mall. This means that no matter what someone will pass by or notice your shop from a distance. Is marketing therefore not required? Not quite, it is still highly suggested. A business owner wants to develop paths not only to direct curious prospects to their domain but also to develop a reputation and to inform the public with more details about their product or service before they even set foot in the store itself.

Now let’s enter the World Wide Web shall we? Cyberspace. That’s right, for marketer’s the key word here is space and the web has lots of it. The internet is virtually unlimited when it comes to space. Therefore here when you put up your shop via website, you can’t count on anything even human coming by without marketing involved. Sure there are highways, streets, and paths but they’re not even close to the new website’s front door. Unlike in physical reality, here we have to construct our own paths and roads. Most of us can’t even dream of building a highway leading to our websites so we pay for marketing products and services that secure little streets to these massively busy highways such as Yahoo and Google. We network outward with paths and dirt roads to other websites that reach out and spend countless hours working through ways of making contact without having to spend more than $ 10 or joining any terrifying paying subscription agreement. This is reality and in it we lose and usually we lose a lot if we are to get to where we need. It must be known that we will lose or success will not just be out of reach but left behind and forgotten, which is the ultimate downfall of a great idea.

There are well known approaches to scraping out small paths to the everlasting traffic of cyberspace. We light our candles and spotlights to attract others by writing articles such as this one or releasing cheap press statements. Webmasters join social networks and directories to form a trust and of course another path that is open to all, yet being too ambiguous to drive enough force for curiosity. Lame attempts are conducted daily to gain links that point back at our sweat and headache driven websites that have earned certain appeal. And for what? To connect with these major highways like Google by digging out frail streams that poke into their mighty river.

Yet let’s not shun and hide our eyes at these approaches of pulling traffic from elsewhere. After all isn’t human traffic a concept that cannot be bound? Don’t we all have the right to be heard? Damn right we do!

So how can we take the game plan to the next level? A network is required. A network not for the individual, we have enough of those out there. No we need a network for our foundations, a network of ideas and platforms, a network of websites. I?m not speaking here of a simple directory as that is a database where websites are not connected in any way and only really push the money earning power of the directory’s webmaster. No, it is a time to take an approach on a true website network. A networked directory where each website even though original to its core, helps its neighboring websites in a clear “one for all an all for one” strategy.

How could a true “one for all and all for one” type of website network interconnect in order to be effective within the marketing sphere? The answer lies within the subdomains. A website?s subdomains tend to share in the Alexa rating and Google page rank. All that is required for a true website network to work is a single domain name that hosts webpages that each individually dedicate themselves to a particular website. Various webmasters of the websites provide content or the webpage code itself and it is uploaded under the root domain. It is each webmaster?s responsibility to optimize what they provide to the website network as it is so on their own website.

A website network can be a remarkable tool that can build a powerful extra number of streets to a website. Joining the network is easy cost free and with more education on the matter provided as a bonus. Kidawa is such a network and as it reveals its plans, lessons will be provided for webmasters on how and why to optimize their networked webpages. This is a chance to learn and grow while saving the dime for other necessities. Treat your website. Share it, talk about it, and submit it. It is a world where it matters much on who you know and what you know. We can all use help at times, so why not help others as they help you.

Kidawa.com is the true one for all and all for one strategy to get more real traffic to your website. Submit your website for a free completely customizable webpage.

Australasian Law Awards gets some entertainment and wow factor with Human Statue Bodyart judge living statues at Sydney Town Hall…

The ALB Australasian Law Awards is the premier awards event for the Australian and New Zealand legal industry. It brings together under one roof more than 500 in-house counsels, private practitioners and industry leaders to celebrate excellence in the legal profession, recognising individuals, teams and companies for their outstanding achievements.

For the uninitiated, ALB stands for ‘Australasian Legal Business’, which is a leading trade publication from Thomson Reuters.

Last Thursday the awards came with some extra excitement and wow factor.

The legal world collaborated with the creative arts arts and entertainment world, as Sydney based Human Statue Bodyart created and provided 4 human statue ‘Living Judges’.

The prestigious event was so large that it took up two rooms. The human statues were in the ‘Vestibule’ room, while dinner for hundreds of guests was served in the adjoining ‘Centennial Hall’.

As far as we can ascertain, it was the first time that the Law Awards (or any other legal entity in Australia), has used human statues, living statues, or even done anything with bodypaint. From the excellent feedback received, it will not be the last time that the awards or legal sector in Australia uses statues from Human Statue Bodyart.

It’s understood that Thomson Reuters was the prime organiser of the event.

Bell Gully welcomes recognition at Australasian law awards…

31 May 2013

The best way to advertise your website is by writing articles and submitting them to article directories. Each article should include a URL in the author’s resource section that allows readers to click to a web page of your choice – preferably a page that expands on the topic of the article.

This benefits you in a number of ways: The article is published on its own page in each directory and each gives you a back link to the URL quoted in the resource. The published page can be listed on Google and the other search engines in the same way as any other web page can be, and many of these appear on the first page of Google for the keyword for which the article has been optimized.

However, that’s assuming that the article has been properly optimized for the keyword, and that is a skill in itself. Many good writers have no idea how to go about optimizing a web page using good keyword density and latent semantic indexing principles. LSI, use of keywords and the use of semantic relevance to indicate the relevance of a web page to search terms used by search engine users is a skill that has to be learned, and part of that is understanding how search engine algorithms work. Professional article writers understand, but others have to be taught these skills.

Readers of the article also have the opportunity to click on the URL if they like your article and want to know more, and furthermore, other webmasters are permitted by the directories to copy the article for use on their own websites, assuming that they retain the author’s resource section, complete with your URL.

Writing articles, therefore, enables your web page to be advertised in a number of different ways: on the directory itself, on another person’s website and through a prominent listing on Google, Yahoo, or any other search engine assuming that it has been effectively optimized. You can submit your article to an unlimited number of directories or ezines, and the more that accept it for publication the better. You need not change it for each, though it helps if you do. It’s not necessary though.

You can effectively advertise your website by writing articles and submitting the same one to as many different directories as you can. Google will not punish you, but over time will start to drop those listings where the article appears elsewhere. However, that takes time – several weeks, and you can compensate for that by writing at least one article a week.

When writing articles, however, it is best to write a slightly different version of each for each directory or ezine, and so avoid the duplicate content penalty. There are ways to achieve this easily and quickly, although many ‘article spinning’ techniques can produce articles that make little sense, or read badly and can do more harm than good to your site.

Trying to do that manually can be difficult, particularly if you have a number of websites to maintain. Writing articles can become a chore rather than the fun it should be, and you will eventually see your web pages drop down the listings till they disappear altogether. That will certainly happen if you submit the same article to every different directory and ezine.

The answer is to have your articles written for you by an article ghost writer. You pay the ghost writer to write your articles, but in all respects the article is yours. Your name goes with it as author, your URL is in the resource and you own the copyright. If a writer keeps the copyright, then don’t pay them since they are writing on your behalf, not selling you their article and retaining copyright.

A professional ghost writer can rapidly write several versions of the same article, and if each paragraph is written in a different way, you can mix them all up to provide loads of different articles.

There are no doubts at all that the advertising you get through article marketing is far superior to that from having your website URL listed in a website directory, or from quoting it in forums. Writing articles gets your web pages noticed by readers who have an interest in the topic of your article and who are likely to click through to your website.

Make the landing page a squeeze page, and you can capture their names and email addresses, and so keep in touch with them by providing free tips, courses, free eBooks and the like, and then, occasionally, offers for your products.

That is the best way to market your products and your website, and writing articles is the only way that some people use to advertise. Apart from the cost of the ghost writer, it is free and very effective. Writing articles and using article marketing as an advertising technique makes sense since it has repeatedly been proved to work, and brings you a far better return on advertising costs than most other advertising techniques.

Pete is a professional article ghost writer, and for more information on how to make money through effective use of article marketing visit his website at Article Services where you will find details of how writing articles can benefit you and get more exposure for your website and your products.

Right Order to Follow For WordPress Developers While Moving A Website

As WordPress developers we have to always face a simple process frequently and that is moving a WordPress websites. Albeit this not new thing for most of us who are well experienced, but its certainly for those who are entering in this field right now. Therefore, moving a WordPress website is a daunting task for a novice WordPress programmer since there are plenty of chances to commit some minor mistakes and have to suffer.

There are myriad of cases that we have to move WordPress websites and some noteworthy common cases first of all include the shifting from local server to hosting serve at the end of our WordPress website development. Here is we usually keep our website in the local sub-directory on the hosting server as most of the hosting providers offer this facilities. Once WordPress development is finish and we need to test our WordPress website on the web we have to shift our website from sub-directory to root directory of the hosting.

In another scenario we have to move the website from local installation or from our computer to remote installation means on our hosting. Finally we have to doing moving of website from one hosting to another hosting that is better in quality and price than old one. That is okay for a experienced WordPress developer to do this task, but for a novice developer, she should keep following instruction under consideration always in such moving.

Backup

In any case of moving you should have the backup of your website before you start shifting because there are chances that you commit some mistakes and you may lost files or data from your original website directory. Now, when you take backup you need to take backup of theme files, you uploads, your plug-ins, extensions or components as they may be useful in any emergency and finally your database.

Database Backup

Generally database backup in not simple copy and paste thing, but you have to use some tools to do that. These tools are phpMyAdmin which is widely used in all hosting, Sequel Pro in case of OS X, terminal commands, A MySQL desktop client and a backup plug-in like WP-DB-Backup, which will email your database as backup. We generally need to do some changes while we are moving website so a as good WordPress developer you have copy your database and add a suffix-old on its copy then you have to start editing the original database.

Sub-directory To Root
As stated above WordPress programmers have to perform this act frequently so if they are using a parent and child theme structure this process becomes extremely simple as you don’t have to move anything as this method will work on a standard installation of WordPress and applicable for most of the frameworks. Of course, you can go straight forward in some cases like multi-site installations or the sites using Genesis as a framework. The best aspect of this method is that it finished within moments and its speed is depending on the setup, means your choice during installation.

Silly me: after the iPhone 3g had been out for a full week, I thought I could stroll right into the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue & 59th Street in mid-town Manhattan, and simply buy one without any muss, fuss, bother, or delay.

But when I arrived at 11 AM, I found a line of approximately 150 people waiting outside in the broiling sun, not seeming to move forward at all; it turned out that the Apple store "concierge" folks were letting them in in groups of ten, when the previous ten had been taken care of. When I asked the woman how long she had been waiting, she said, "Four hours" — she had arrived at 7 AM, having already determined that the AT&T stores were sold out throughout New Jersey and Connecticut.

Well, I’m a gadget freak and a Mac fan, but there’s a limit to my passion for such things; four hours was just too much. So instead, I decided to take a bunch of pictures of the people who were in the line. Of course, I have no idea whethere the people queued up in front of Apple stores in other cities (or at other stores here in NYC) are similar to this group … but I’m inclined to think that they are. And if that’s true, then the demographics of this group — in terms of age, gender, nationality, ethnic groups, etc. — is particularly intriguing. I saw only one guy dressed in a corporate uniform of suit and tie; Apple may be trying to break into the "enterprise" market, but that’s not who was standing in line for all those hours in the sun…

Are you looking to increase traffic to your website? Does your online business need more exposure than it’s currently getting? To jump start your business and see your number of online visitors skyrocket, try using an online website directory service.

An online website directory service is a website that features every type of business imaginable. From dog food to florists, all of the business websites are neatly categorized into headings and subheadings.

The category system of organization helps the online website directory to be as user friendly as possible. It offers up a wealth of information in a manner that is easy to understand.

It is important for web surfers to find the information they desire quickly and easily. Website directories are constructed to make a visitor’s experience convenient and hassle free. The pleasant experience a potential customer encounters when using a website directory will directly affect their overall impression of your business.

If you are affiliated with a directory that is well-designed and easy to use, it makes your business look professional. If you are listed on a sub-par site that is cluttered and chaotic, it will make your business look unorganized and give a bad impression to your potential clients.

Often, the best online website directory service is one that listens to the needs of its visitors. For instance, if a web surfer sees that a new category is needed for a certain group of businesses, the website should make it easy for them to submit their suggestions.

After all, their ease of use on the website translates into web traffic for their valued advertisers. Make sure the online directory you choose to list your business with cares about the satisfaction of their visitors.

Many online website directory services also allow their users to rank and review the websites they frequent. If you have a particularly good website, listing it on a directory service is a must. It will earn you the positive feedback that your online content deserves.

Another convenient feature that is offered by a good online website directory service is a search tool. Imagine if a potential client was looking for your website through the directory, but couldn’t remember the exact name of your business. The client could simply go back to the directory and type in as much of your business’ name as could be remembered.

Because there are far fewer competitors listed in an online website directory than in a huge search engine, clients are far more likely to find your website again. In this manner, an online website directory service makes you easier to find online than lots of the competition.

In fact, some directories offer more than a simple, standard search feature. The best directories offer an advanced search option, sometimes called a power search, that allows visitors to search by a person’s name, e-mail address or business category. This is very useful if a potential client can remember your e-mail address, but not your business’ name or phone number.

Often, you can add your business’ website to an online directory service for free. The directory will provide you with a back link to your website at no cost to you, just like registering your domain name for free with the major search engines. So, if there’s no charge, listing your website on a directory is a no-brainer.

New York Public Library #5
Website Directory
Image by an untrained eye
April 13th, 2006 – New York, United States

When I visited New York in April 2006 – I like to try to get there at least once a year if I can, so invigorating and exciting do I find it – I had hardly taken a photograph in six months. I wandered the streets looking for the iconic (or, failing that, the stereotypical) Big Apple shots, and though I half-heartedly took one or two snaps of a young man leaning against a wall on 5th Avenue playing the saxophone, with the Empire State Building looming in the background, I found I hadn’t quite got my street photography mojo back. It had taken me a long time to get up the courage to take candid shots in public back in Geneva less than a year earlier, and not having done so for so long, I reverted to my natural discretion and self-consciousness.

Eventually I decided to give up and went into the New York public library behind Bryant Park, where, ironically, an exhibition of street photography was being shown. Once I had been round the exhibition I explored more of the magnificent building with its astonishing grandeur and gorgeous artworks. Finally, exhausted – I had walked over 120 blocks in the day – I sat down on the bench opposite the one in this picture with the intention merely of resting, only to have my photographer’s instinct ignited by the arrival of a young Japanese couple.

This and the next photo of the couple in black and white may not strictly speaking be considered street photographs, but to me they represent the best I have so far achieved in the genre.

You’ve built a brand new website for your business and you’re really excited. However, you have to do something to get the word out and you’re not sure what to do. You know that you can post flyers all over your town or simply tell your friends, but that’s not going to do much for you. So what are you going to do?

Well, you’re going to start with a website directory. The website directory is an effective way to combat the always changing algorithms of search engines and to really get an edge on the competition. Basically, you need to do all that you can to ensure that you are marketing your site correctly and a website directory is going to help you do that. You’re going to be able to battle some of the hardships of Internet marketing is you use a directory to get the word out.

Using the directory

Another thing that is special about submitting your website to a website directory is that you get a free back link to your website. The back link is very important because the more links you have on the web, the better off your site is. This means it is going to be indexed by search engine spiders.

You see, search engine spiders follow these links to your site and then they index your site. The more links you have out there, the more your site is going to be indexed. This means that you’ll show up higher in the search engine results when someone searches for what it is you are offering your customers and potential customers.

As for how the directory works, it is a place in which the websites are compiled into categories. They are also divided up into subcategories to make searching easier. Because these categories are divided up into subcategories, the search engine spiders recognize them. Needless to say, these directories are visited by search engine spiders more than many other sites. This is because of the quality of the back links. The back links are of a high quality at these sites, which is why you need to utilize a website directory.

Choosing the right website directory

Choosing the right website directory doesn’t have to be difficult. There are some things that you have to look for in order to make that determination. Those things are:

To pay or not to pay – There are pay directories and there are free directories. Determine which is best for you. Free directories still provide you with that back link. It is true there will be a lot more sites posted there, but they are effective.

Check the page rank – Check the page rank of the website directory. That way, you know that it is a popular site. You can also check into sites to see how they are growing. If a site is growing, then that is a sign that it is a popular directory that is emerging. You definitely want to get in on that.

Look at both general and specific directories – You want to do this because both can be effective. You can post on a specific directory and post on a general directory. This will broaden the exposure that your site gets.

You don’t have to be restricted to just one website directory. You can use all sorts of website directories. This is important in getting those high quality back links that will make your site successful. There is not a rule anywhere that says you’re only allowed to post your website to a single website directory. If there were, then it would be impossible for a lot of sites to be successful on the Internet.

Submission options

You also have submission options. These options are manual, using submission software, and using a directory submission service. The directory submission service may use software or do it manually. However, there are article directories out there that will not accept submissions from software. They want to ensure that real people are doing the posting. Many of these directories have real people approving the submissions, so it is hard if they have to approve thousands of submissions submitted by these software programs. It happens, but it is a good idea to do it manually. If you don’t have time to do it yourself, look into the directory submission service.

How to maximize the benefits

It isn’t enough to simply post your website link up on a website directory. There are ways in which you can maximize the benefits. It will be worth your while to follow these tips so that you can make sure that you profit from your efforts:

If you’re submitting to more than one website directory, you need to vary your description. Don’t use the same description for every directory.

Make sure the text that accompanies your website link is really good stuff. That means you want it to draw people in. You want them to click on your link. Believe it or not, people browse website directories, especially if they’re looking for a website that focuses on certain material.

Make as many submissions as possible to website directories. Make sure they are directories that you can track back easily. Make sure they are easy to manage as well. You don’t want to go for directories that are hard to follow.

Make sure that you choose directories that will also allow you to submit the links to your inner pages. This allows for better indexing and will also allow more people to find you.

After this, you might as well give your website a pair of running shoes. This is because it is going to take off like wildfire. It is going to run like the wind. It is important that you be prepared, because the moment you start submitting your site is the moment that it enters the race of website popularity.

Australasian Law Awards gets some entertainment and wow factor with Human Statue Bodyart judge living statues at Sydney Town Hall…

The ALB Australasian Law Awards is the premier awards event for the Australian and New Zealand legal industry. It brings together under one roof more than 500 in-house counsels, private practitioners and industry leaders to celebrate excellence in the legal profession, recognising individuals, teams and companies for their outstanding achievements.

For the uninitiated, ALB stands for ‘Australasian Legal Business’, which is a leading trade publication from Thomson Reuters.

Last Thursday the awards came with some extra excitement and wow factor.

The legal world collaborated with the creative arts arts and entertainment world, as Sydney based Human Statue Bodyart created and provided 4 human statue ‘Living Judges’.

The prestigious event was so large that it took up two rooms. The human statues were in the ‘Vestibule’ room, while dinner for hundreds of guests was served in the adjoining ‘Centennial Hall’.

As far as we can ascertain, it was the first time that the Law Awards (or any other legal entity in Australia), has used human statues, living statues, or even done anything with bodypaint. From the excellent feedback received, it will not be the last time that the awards or legal sector in Australia uses statues from Human Statue Bodyart.

It’s understood that Thomson Reuters was the prime organiser of the event.

Bell Gully’s 18-partner Corporate team was named New Zealand Deal Team of the Year at the 2013 ALB Australasian Law Awards held at the Sydney Town Hall on Thursday night.

The awards offered recognition of Bell Gully’s work on many of the leading transactions in 2012. The firm advised clients on all four of the transactions named as finalists for New Zealand Deal of the Year, including Vodafone’s acquisition of TelstraClear, Haier’s acquisition of Fisher & Paykel Appliances, the sale of AMI Insurance to IAG and the Fonterra Shareholders Fund IPO. The Fonterra IPO, which involved a number of New Zealand firms, won the New Zealand Deal of the Year category as well as the Australasian award for Equity Market Deal of the Year.

Last night’s wins reflected a total of nine finalist nominations for Bell Gully, more than were received by any other New Zealand law firm.

Roger Partridge, Chairman of Bell Gully, said the strong result reflected the firm’s ongoing efforts to deliver outstanding value and service to its clients in a competitive market.

"In a market where there is considerable choice, clients consistently select Bell Gully to advise on New Zealand’s biggest deals. That’s not just because of the value we add to our clients’ transactions, but a reflection of the trust they have gained in us as we have helped them and their businesses succeed day-to-day.”

"This result is a testament to strong client relationships, and we’d like to thank our clients for their ongoing support.”

The ALB awards recognise the key transactions in Australia and New Zealand in 2012 and the legal excellence among the firms that advised on them. The finalists were assessed against criteria including deal value, complexity, breadth and the degree to which the work involved groundbreaking, original legal techniques and structures.

Users become aware of that theses web directories provide helpful information listings, considering them useful and accessible.

There are thousands of topics or subjects; each subject usually includes other categories and links. Internet is all about information like a library. The web directory acts as a small shelf in the library that holds huge number of books or information on various topics, therefore, the website directory that is for links and categories are very significant as people like searching information, it will be more important when it is utilized for traffic generator.

Generally speaking, a web directory is to offer information about anything. All types of subjects and topics are easily to be identified.

To be considered as a good quality web directory, there are several things we have to consider. Firstly, the directory reliability and reputation come to our eyes. Some directories are existed for years, while some only appear for few months. Secondly their content must be apprehensible and relevant to their subjects; no financial sites can be listed on gaming directory. Thirdly, their content must be up-to-date and reviews regularly to ensure the quality of listings.

As now, there is huge number of web directories on the net and even more to come out daily, it is for the best to do a thorough research of web directories you want to add your links to. You have to select the one with well-organized, function properly and updates regularly.

Traveling is not the only subject a premier web directory can cover. If we were to give a few examples they would certainly include appealing topics such as: arts, games, news, real estate and recreation. Science, shopping and society are also enclosed in the same place, helping to the development of what is lately called as ‘link building’. It represents an effective strategy and it is a known fact that some of the web directories may hold up to 10000 different categories and sub-directories.

Some people may realize that the Net contains of too much information and surfer will feel that it is very hard to find the exact information they want. The fact is that if the information is presented in an organized manner, people not only do experience difficulty but also they will find it is usefully of various topics and willing to visit again in the future. Most of them will suggest their own websites, building links pointing to their websites and increase popularity.

Australasian Law Awards gets some entertainment and wow factor with Human Statue Bodyart judge living statues at Sydney Town Hall…

The ALB Australasian Law Awards is the premier awards event for the Australian and New Zealand legal industry. It brings together under one roof more than 500 in-house counsels, private practitioners and industry leaders to celebrate excellence in the legal profession, recognising individuals, teams and companies for their outstanding achievements.

For the uninitiated, ALB stands for ‘Australasian Legal Business’, which is a leading trade publication from Thomson Reuters.

Last Thursday the awards came with some extra excitement and wow factor.

The legal world collaborated with the creative arts arts and entertainment world, as Sydney based Human Statue Bodyart created and provided 4 human statue ‘Living Judges’.

The prestigious event was so large that it took up two rooms. The human statues were in the ‘Vestibule’ room, while dinner for hundreds of guests was served in the adjoining ‘Centennial Hall’.

As far as we can ascertain, it was the first time that the Law Awards (or any other legal entity in Australia), has used human statues, living statues, or even done anything with bodypaint. From the excellent feedback received, it will not be the last time that the awards or legal sector in Australia uses statues from Human Statue Bodyart.

It’s understood that Thomson Reuters was the prime organiser of the event.

Internet is getting bigger, competitive and more mainstream day by day. Businesses have realized that internet is the new frontier of sales. Every business big or small is joining the internet bandwagon. The first step for any company to establish it’s presence on internet is to get a website. While getting a website is an important step the things do not really end there. There are millions of websites on Internet clamoring for people’s attention. Most of the websites are anonymous and rarely get to see any visitors. Any traffic if any is accidental or through offline means. The most effective way to get traffic is from search engines like Google & Bing when people search for product, services or information related to your business. Getting traffic from search engines is not easy either. For that you need to be on first page of Google search results. Intrigued on how to be on the first page of Google search results? Read on to find the answer…

Content is king: I know this sounds clichéd, but is the truth. Over the years, I have seen many websites with solid content towering above other websites. There can be many reasons. Google and other search engines appreciate good, informative and unique content. Other reason is that unique and interesting content attracts other websites. Webmasters and bloggers often cite excerpts from websites with informative content and link back. This automatically increases inbound links which is so crucial for Google while calculating a website’s worth. Good SEOcontent writing gets traffic from back links as well as from good positions in search engines.

Relevant Keywords: A website should have keywords relevant to its content and business so that it can rank on search engines. Keywords placed at appropriate places and with correct density can ensure that search engines associate your website with the relevant keywords. If you are selling Halloween costumes then keywords related to Halloween should be placed in the title tags of all pages and in the content. Search engine robots will glean information from your website and deduced that your website is about Halloween costumes and rank you accordingly.

Directory Submission: An old and much abused trick but still relevant. Whatever, SEO consultants may declare; directory submission is still important step for brand new website. Directory submission ensures free one way links and induces Google bots to crawl your website more regularly. Do this at least when your website is new.

Article submission: Article submission is perhaps the most important activity. It costs nothing but few hours to write good article and submit it to top article directories. Your website get not only steady stream of traffic from articles but also high value backlinks from content rich sites.

It surprises me that people don’t take advantage of local free directories when marketing their website. In Perth, where we are web designers we have a list of directories that we use all the time that are free.

The quickest way to find local website directories is to enter a few key phrases into google and look through about 10 pages of results. Look for website directory sites and put them into a list. If they show up in the results then Google thinks they are important. You could also type in key phrase and then the word directory after them e.g. plumber directory, That will likely display more sites. This list below is for people in Australia but using the logic above you will easily find the best local directories.

All of the following website are the names followed by DOTCOM DOTAU. Due to the rules associated with article directories, I can’t list the websites so that you can click on them. Anyway here they are:-

1 yellowpagesonline – They provide a free online listing although that doesn’t include a link back to your site but there are plenty of people using it for search purposes and we have been listed in a free local area guide which can also help with phone calls. They will of course ring you soon afterwards trying to upsell you to a paid listing, but you can politely refuse.

2 Hotfrog – This is a business directory in many countries and is used by many people to do searches but is also a favoured website in Google results and provides a link and gets you indexed fairly quickly as well.

3 Comeonaussie – This site is not as well known, but I have found that in many instances a listing appears within Google with the site listing within an hour. In a few low competition areas you can even be on the front page of google with just a comeonaussie listing. They also place you in 2 additional sites for free when you register.

4 Truelocal – This site is affiliated with yahoo local search and is referenced often in Google maps as a citation. You can even add reviews to make the listing stand out more as well.

5 Aussieweb – This takes a while to get listed but seems to show up in the results within a month or so.

6 Localbusinessguide – This is also often a good directory that seems to be growing larger as time goes by. It can be a bit patchy in the search results at times but it is free, so you can’t complain.

7 Dlook – This seems to work well in the eastern states of Australia but the people searching for web design business in perth with this directory is low.

8 Business – Only recently has this company come to my attention, but there is a big company behind it so I expect that it will continue to grow in stature.

There are always more directories to be found out there, but that should help your website along initially.

If you or your business needs help with online directories, talk to a Perth Web Designer 9350 9392 or visit the Perth Web Wizards website to get lots of information about Web Design and what it can do for you and your business.
