Determine Your Website Keywords (Search Terms)

by Danielle Murdoch @ Created by Danielle

Most people think that Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is a thing to do once your website has been built. However, I beg to differ. It all starts with your domain name and stems down from there into your headings, page content and images. You should know beforehand what website keywords you are wanting your website to target before you even start writing content and the website gets launched. Today we are going to talk about how you can determine your keywords to help you focus your website content and ensure you get an overall picture of the type of content you are going to create and not end up repeating the same keywords for each page.     This is the fifth blog in the “How to Prepare to hire a web designer: blog series” If you have just joined me, maybe you would like to read the first blog

WooCommerce SEO tip: prevent duplicate title tags

by Danielle Murdoch @ Created by Danielle

Your page title (the one you see in the browser bar) is undoubtedly one of your most important sources of SEO keyword juice. Your page title reflects the one true the title of the current page, and it is not easily obscured from search bots, so Google quite naturally lends a lot of weight to it. Conversely, if you have multiple pages with the same page title, you are making it harder for search engines to distinguish between pages and to figure out for what search terms the page is relevant. Products with duplicate titles If you run a webstore that sells multiple versions of the same product, it can be hard to avoid duplicate title tags. For example, a website that sells gem stones may sell multiple blue sapphires. The owner of the website can get more specific, like Australian blue sapphire, but there is a limit to how

 About Remaintenance Service We are developers and designers that love working with WordPress. We found that almost every WordPress website suffers from the same problems, like: Outdated versions because of theme or plugin conflicts Lack of a maintained backup system No consistent checking of uptime or performance No protection against hackers and viruses Let’s face it: maintaining a WordPress website can be a hard and tricky job. It distracts website owners from running their own websites and in the end costs them heaps in lost revenue. Even most WordPress professionals find it a chore. That is why most maintenance contracts only include problem solving when you request it yourself. That makes no sense! You get a maintenance contract so you don’t have to worry about your website functioning correctly. Now you still have to look for the problems yourself.

How to Do a Cartwheel

How to Do a Cartwheel

by @ How to of the Day

The cartwheel is a basic gymnastics skill that will strengthen your upper body and help you work your way up to more advanced moves. There are two basic types: the front-to-back and the side-to-side cartwheel. With the side-to-side cartwheel, you'll start and end in the same direction. Performing the front-to-back cartwheel will land you facing the opposite direction in which you began. The front-to-back is the most common type of cartwheel. To learn either type you’ll need to find a safe environment in which you can practice placing your hands and feet in a way that’ll propel you forward and upside down.
