*********************************

This young man and woman seemed to be writing a computer program, or perhaps building a website, as they sat in a shady area off to the side of the people waiting in line … I didn’t get close enough to them to see exactly what they were up to …

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Increase Website Traffic With a Bang

Increase Website Traffic With a Bang

You’ve got that perfect website. Maybe you built it through hours of toil and effort. Or, maybe you paid a hefty sum to get a pro to build it for you. Whichever, your goal is to increase website traffic to your site. Whether you want to earn money from your site, or inform the public on an issue dear to your heart, you want that traffic. How do you get it? What are some tips to increase website traffic?

Tip one:

Get listed in the major search engines. How to do this? First and foremost, have competitive keywords. This means keywords that get lots of searches. There is a golden ratio of searches to websites that compete. Programs that educate you on keyword optimization are excellent to learn just which keywords work best. However, if you don’t want to put out that money right now, just be sure to choose one that has lots of requests, but ones with the least competing sites. Sometimes, keyword phrases are best for this.

Also, to stand a better chance of getting a listing, and better yet, a high listing, in search engines is to make sure you have good content. Fluff will not work. Don’t stuff your content with the keyword phrase, but do use it periodically throughout your content. Again, there are ebooks and programs that give estimates of the best keyword saturation, which just means the number of times the keyword appears in every hundred words. This varies from guru to guru, but you can do searches and find out what saturation is recommended to increase search engine traffic and as a consequence increase website traffic. You could then use the one recommended most, and do your own tests to see which works. There is a happy balance between too rich a keyword saturation and too weak. Either is not effective.

Tip two:

Another important point in the game to increase website traffic is linking to your site. The more links to and from your site, the better your search engine ranking. Also, the better the sites linking to you and that you link to, the better your ranking. There are techniques to help obtain good links, which can also be found in ebooks and website promotion programs. You can also search and find some free information as well. Some gurus think this is the one most important aspect to getting search engine traffic.

There are also many free and paid link exchange/promotion programs. Just be prepared with these to have to promote someone else’s link if they promote yours.

Tip three:

Web directories are another method to increase website traffic. In this method, you get listed into a website directory, or ring. When someone surfs to a website in the directory or ring, a link is shown to click to other websites that are in that ring. Of course, you need to be sure to be targeted well and join a well-targeted ring. You don’t have to have the exact same content, but just be sure they contents relate and are not offensive to the rest of the ring. You don’t want to be promoting hunting products in a webring that promotes animal rights. Yes, they relate, in that both deal with animal hunting, but they are on opposite sides of the table. You don’t really want the traffic that the animal rights ring produces.

Tip four:

Article directories are another method to increase website traffic. In this method, you submit articles to the directory and they use their traffic to promote your article. You have a resource box at the end of your article directing people to your site. These may be articles you have written or that you have paid others to write for you.

The key here is to have excellent titles, content and to write an excellent resource box. Make sure your resource box contains good keywords. Include a strong call to action as well. Again, there are ebooks and programs out there that teach you to write good call to action lines and good headlines/titles.

Tip Five:

Be prepared to spend a little money to increase website traffic. Ebooks and programs are mentioned throughout this article, but they are a wonderful, inexpensive source for information and education. True, some can be quite pricey, but other are in the less than $ 10 range. Of course, there is also free information on the internet. Still, the ebooks usually explain in more detail the points you find for free.

Another area where you should be prepared to spend a little money is in your content. If you can write good content consistently, then by all means do so. However, if you need more content than you feel confident providing, hire a good writer to write articles, ads, resource boxes, and other material for you. Some are very inexpensive, doing an article for $ 5-10. Others charge more. However, the pricier writer is not necessarily the best. Offer a small assignment of five or so articles as a test, check what you get from them, then decide whether you want to use that writer or not.

With just a small investment of money, and somewhat more in time, you can increase website traffic. After all, if you have an excellent website and no ones come to it, have you achieved your goal? Probably not. Do what you can yourself, spend whatever money you can budget, and watch that traffic grow.

Bristol and Avon Family History Society

The Bristol & Avon Family History Society was formed in 1975 to encourage the study of family history and genealogy in Bristol and what was then the County of Avon. It aimed to provide contacts between members, both by regular meetings and through a quarterly Journal, and to assist one another with problems encountered during research work.

The Society now has over 1700 members. In addition to a Research Room and this website, we also publish indexes and other research aids, and sell books, magazines, microfiches and other items of interest to both members and non-members.

The area covered by the Society is the City of Bristol and the former County of Avon. This includes the southern parishes of Gloucestershire, the northern area of Somerset, and the City of Bath. We are in the south-west of England, about 100 miles west of London.

We have members living all over the world. Many members do not live locally, but have ancestors who came from the area. Other members are living locally, but their origins are in other parts of the country. We feel all can benefit from belonging to the Society, as it consists of a friendly mixture of complete beginners, very experienced family historians and professional genealogists.

A – Z Bristol Street Directory Set 1871

What a quality directory does is human reviews of available websites to determine their quality and if the site meets directory standards list them in the most relevant category to the site content. When directory visitors are searching for sites based on content they will find relevant sites and be directed to them. This will result in direct traffic to your website. This results in increasing your sites reach and exposure to internet traffic.

When you increase the number of quality inbound links to your website through directory submissions, it opens more doorways to your website for traffic to find you. This traffic is more relevant which means higher conversion rates along with more visibility.The increased link popularity you achieve with quality directory submissions will also help you gain better search engine positioning for relevant searches. Directories of quality are frequently crawled by all major search engines which will quickly find your link, follow it and index your site. By having a listing there your site will gain exposure to all the major search engines. Increasing the visibility of your site to search engines on quality directories will mean more frequent indexing of your site to pick up new content and improve search result rankings for those relevant terms.

If you use relevant keywords in your link text without spamming your link building efforts can be amplified as the keywords within the links will be seen as relevant to the content of your site and result in higher rankings for those relevant searches. That means the traffic that is directed towards your website will be targeted towards your sites content.That means by submitting your website to quality web directories you can brand your websites products and services by using your brand in the anchor text of your links. Just like with targeting keywords, this targets and builds company and brand awareness to your clients and customers.

Some of the most popular directories are dmoz.org, dir.yahoo.com, botw.com, and google.com/dirhp. Depending on how serious you are about the improvement of your website presence submitting to all relevant website directory is a smart investment. The end result will be a higher page rank for your website as well as improved website traffic.

Directory Submission not only gets traffic to our website but also increases page rank. If you website’s page rank is good, search engine sends more traffic to your site, more people link back to you and also page rank is the fame and value of your website. Directory submission increases lot of backlinks to our website. This is also one of the way to increse link popularity to your website.

There are three types of Directory Submission

1. Submitting to General Directories: In this case we just submit our website to general directories who might be dealing with different products. This kind of submission is not much recommended since for good page ranking your link back should be with the relevant webiste as yours.

2. Submitting to Niche Directories: In this case while submitting we select the website to where we want to submit and also we select the particular categories under which our website is best suited. This increases quality traffic to our webiste. For example: If our website is dealing with online music and our website is listed in the category of Real Estate then noboy will visit our website even though they see our link. On the other hand, If our webiste is listed under the category of Entertainment then there is high chance of visitors to visit our website since the visitor is surfing the Entertainment category and they see our Online Music link which comes under Entertainment. This kind of submission is recommended by most of us.

3. Submitting to High PR Directories: These days many people are not only concentrating in submittitng to directories but also high page rank directories. This is because the kind of traffic you get depends upon the page rank or popularity of the directories where you webiste is been submitted. If you submit your website to high page rank directories then you have highest chance of getting more quality links, more traffic and also good page rank to your website. While updating page rank search engine not only takes in to consideration the number of links but also the page rank of the link as well as relevance of the link. This kind of submission is highly recommended.
