The top Do-it-yourself SEO Tips you need to know (Part 2)

  1. DIY Public Relations

Although link authority is one of the main components of SEO, purchasing links is forbidden by search engines like Google and Bing. As a result, public relations come into play. If you have your own PR representatives, work with them in order not to invalidate their efforts. If you’re doing it yourself, please read on.

Google advises site owners to build obliging websites that they want to tell their friends about to visit over and over. This is Google’s answer to the question “how to get more links ethically?”

You should produce content that must be targeted to different segments of the media. Then, these contents will become conversation starters with different sites, as an enticement that let them write about or link to.

  1. Build Your Social Media Network

Join Twitter and at least one other social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn. Joining social media helps you to connect with your customers and offers a number of audiences for your content.

The top Do-it-yourself SEO Tips you need to know (Part 1)

Search engine optimization (SEO) is not advertising, but it still costs time and money. If you have the money but don’t have time, an SEO agency or consultant is an option. But if you don’t have enough money, use these do-it-yourself SEO tips to improve your organic rankings.

1. Master Keyword Research
Always begin with keyword research, don’t assume that you know what consumers want.
You may understand your industry jargon clearly, but your prospects might use different words and phrases to refer to your services or goods. Keyword research provides an understanding of the terms that consumers use to find your products. It also helps to judge the demand for them.
The best keyword research tools offer a quantitative demand score that helps define the relative value in directing each keyword theme. There are many popular free keyword research tools such as Google Trends, Keyword Shitter; AdWord & SEO Keyword Permutation Generator; Google Correlate; Keywords Everywhere.
2. Understand Your Competition
Search for the most important products and services you offer and note the top ranked websites in the search results, those that have the same business model with you and also the ones that don’t have the same one with you but compete for the same searches.
Also, remember their reviews and remark their social media activities to discover what their customers think unlike what you hear, or not, from your own.
3. Plan Your Site
By defining what consumers want and the keywords they use to find those products and services, identify your website to address those search queries.
Use long keyword themes which are longer and more specific in blog posts and FAQ pages.

4. Optimize Your Site
The next step is to optimize your site for search engines, accessibility, and performance. Website optimization is the process of using controlled experimentation to increase a website’s overall quality to drive business goals. If your website ranks highly in search engine results, is easy to use and loads quickly, it can help to increase your traffic and prevent user frustration.
5. Produce Regular Content
You don’t need to post content every day but publish your own content regularly, maybe weekly or at least monthly updates. New content is an important factor in keeping site visitors interested and coming back for more, so it will lead to higher search engine rankings. When writing new content, remember that each page should have at least 350 words.
Content does not need to be text, it can be a video with transcripts, or photographs with short textual descriptions.

What Exactly Is Internet of Things (IoT)?

Internet of Things, or simply IoT, is essentially a system of interrelated mechanical and digital machines, computer devices, objects, people or animals that are provided with UID’s (Unique Identifiers) along with the ability to send data over a network without the need for human-to-computer or human-to-human interaction.

A thing within the Internet of Things could either be an animal on a farm with a biochip transponder, an individual with an implant such as a heart monitor or a luxury vehicle with built-in sensors to notify the driver of oil levels, tire pressure, or assist with parking. Basically, it can be any man-made object that could be allocated an IP address and is capable to transfer data over a network.

Organizations in a broad range of industries are utilising Internet of Things to operate much more efficiently, improve decision-making, better understand customers where they can provide enhanced service, and increases the overall value of the organisation.

How Internet of Things Work

An Internet of Things ecosystem basically consists of smart devices that are web-enabled and utilise communication hardware, sensors, and embedded processors to act, send, and collect data they need from their environments. The IoT devices will share the data they collect from sensors by basically connecting to an Internet of Things gateway where the data is either analysed locally or sent to the cloud.

In some cases, these IoT devices will communicate with other devices that are related and will act on the information they receive from each other. The IoT devices perform most of the work without the need of human intervention. However, people could interact with IoT devices. For example, to give them instructions, set them up, or access the data. The communication, networking, and connectivity protocols used within these devices that are web-enabled greatly depend on the applications deployed.

Enterprise and Consumer IoT Applications

There are several applications of IoT in the real world, ranging from enterprise IoT and consumer IoT to industrial and manufacturing IoT. These IoT applications span across several verticals, such as energy, telco, automotive, and more. For example, in the consumer segment, smart homes equipped with smart applications, smart thermostats, and connected lighting, heating, and electronic devices can easily be remotely controlled by smartphones, computers, or other mobile devices.

In healthcare, Internet of Things provide loads of benefits, such as the ability to closely monitor a patient and use the generated data to analyse it. Smart buildings can rapidly reduce energy costs by utilising sensors to detect the number of occupants in a specific room. Businesses can use IoT to switch on air conditioners when a conference room is packed with people. IoT systems in agriculture can assist in monitoring soil moisture, humidity, light, and temperature by using connected sensors.

Benefits of IoT

There are loads of benefits to organisations that utilise Internet of Things, for instance:

• Improve customer experience
• Monitor overall business processes
• Save money and time
• Enhance the productivity of each employee
• Adapt and integrate business models
• Generate more revenue
• Make better decisions in the business

Top 6 Internet Tricks and Tips

The internet is a powerful and vast resource that can be extremely overwhelming for users, especially those that are inexperienced. Below you will find our top 10 tricks and tips for using the internet as well as an internet browser.

Tabbed Browsing

Tabbed browsing is available on all internet browsers, and you can take full advantage of it every time you are on the internet. While browsing a site or reading an article, you might find a link that looks interesting to you. Any link that you find interesting can be opened in a new tab which won’t interrupt your reading. To accomplish this, simply hold down CTRL and left-click on the link with your mouse. You can also open a new blank tab by pressing CRTL and T simultaneously.

When you enter an internet address, there’s no need to include the www or http:// in the address. For instance, if you want to visit Guru of Tips, you simply need to insert guruoftips.com. To make things even simpler when you visit a .com site, simply type guruoftips followed by pressing Ctrl+Enter.

Switch between web page fields much faster

If you are filling out an email, first name, or address, you can switch between each field by simply using the Tab key or by using Shift+Tab to switch back a field. This is extremely handy and much faster than clicking with your mouse in each field you wish to enter information.

Know your shortcuts for Internet Browsers

There are several shortcut keys that you can use while using an internet browser. Below you will find our most recommended shortcuts.

• Press Ctrl+L or Alt+D to position the cursor into the address bar.

• Holding down Ctrl and pressing – or + will decrease and increase the size of the text. To reset the text, simply use Crtl+0.

• Press Alt + left arrow or the backspace key to go back a page.

• Press Ctrl+R or F5 to reload or refresh a web page.

• To make the browser full screen, press F11. To return to normal view, press F11 again.

Use the full potential of internet search engines

Get the best results from every search. If you are unable to find what you are looking for, try adding quotes to your text. For instance, searching for ‘internet tips’ without adding quotes will return results with ‘internet’ and ‘tips’ anywhere on the web page. However, should you search for “internet tips” with quotes, you will only receive pages with “Internet” and “tips” next to each other.

Use alternative browsers

Most users will simply use the default browser that’s already installed on their computers. For instance, most will use Internet Explorer when using Microsoft Windows. However, there are several fantastic alternatives that come equipped with various features, and they are free to download. Some of our favourites include Opera, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome.
