Blog SEO Tips

Search Engine Optimization abbreviated as SEO is a technique which is employed for the promotion of websites, web pages or even blogs. By following the principles of SEO we can greatly increase traffic to the site, and thereby increase the revenue generated by that site. SEO optimizes certain elements of a page or blog so that it can easily be read by search engine crawlers who constantly scan the web for new and popular content. According to the level of optimization, the page gets preference in search results which will help the site to receive more traffic. SEO for a blog is a little different than SEO for a traditional website -Blog SEO puts more focus on getting the attention of the reader searcher by giving them a taste of what they can find in the full article/post.

Keyword Research:

cipro generics

There are many keyword research tools available which give the blog writer multiple keyword suggestions that include (in order) all of the phrases that people most commonly  search for search for. We strongly recommend the Goolge Keyword Tool as it is probably the most accurate, and is also free. Keywords play a keen role in the SEO work. We target the keywords that will give us the greatest traffic increase to the site – keywords should always be selected with this goal in mind, while making sure to stay relavent to the blog and its content.

Blog Title and URL:

Try to add keywords or the words which are relevant to the content of the blog in the blog title and if possible add them in the URL. Ensuring your keywords can be found in each of these areas will greatly help to push your blog to the top of the results when these words are searched. The URL you are using for the blog should be meaningful; it should not simply be a collection of your keywords in URL form – remember that getting to the top of the results is just the first step, you still need searchers to click on your site and the only way to encourage them to click is to give them a good synopsis of the content that is on the page.

Updating Content

Updating content is one of the single best ways to boost your position in search engine results. If you have had a website for a while now and are wondering why your site shows so poorly in the results, this is often one of the primary reasons. If your site is a blog, then you should try to add at least 2 new posts a week. If your site is not a blog, you might want to consider adding a blog section. You can also easily create some automatically updating content by adding a twitter feed or an RSS feed that pulls data from other sites in your industry. Twitter and RSS feeds can be added as widgets to your home page.

Links to the Blog:

The more links that point to your blog (from other sites that are ranked well in terms of SEO) the more frequently that your blog is crawled and indexed which in turn will cause your blog to be viewed as more valuable. This will take time, but working to generate a few links every week will have a dramatic effect on the SEO of your blog. This site only has around 150 incoming links and is ranked in the top 2% of all sites. That said, top 2% doesn’t mean all that much, we recommend making the top 0.5% your goal. Some links are more valuable than others – the most high value links come from sites who have many links to them, but who do not link to too many other links. A forum for example might have a lot of links to it, but because it is so easy for anyone to post an outgoing link back to their site, the value of a link from a forum can be very diluted. Links to your blog only help you get to the top of the search results, as we mentioned before – make sure the content that is showing up in the results is attractive to the reader or all the SEO in the world isn’t going to get you any traffic. Typically the search engine will grab the first few sentences of your blog post, so make sure these are of good quality and reflect the content of the rest of the post. You can also use the description meta tags on your pages to specify the text you would like to show.

Writing Articles with Back Links:

An excellent way to generate high quality links to your site is writing articles to be published on other sites. By writing an article you can guarantee that your link will be placed on a page that has very few links to other sites. On this website we publish a lot of guest articles from from web masters trying to raise awareness of their product/service by writing articles that include links back to their sites. Visit our Publish Article page if you would like write an article to be published on the site. The article will appear at the top of our home page immediately after publishing. Our front page has a Google PageRank of 3 (for now..) and we link to very few other pages, so this will provide you with a very high quality link to your site and will ensure that your site gets crawled by search engines almost immediately. You can expect that the article (along with the link to your site) will be in the google results within 10 minutes of publishing.

Content of Blog:

The content of the blog should be different, it shouldn’t be like copied from some other sites, articles or blogs. Copying content directly is an excellent way to lose SEO. If content has already been indexed by the search engine one someone else’s site, it will not index the same content again on your site – doing so would create inefficiency for the customers of the search engine so naturally they avoid that. You can take ideas from other sites and paraphrase and reorganize them to create new and better content, but copy and paste will get you no where.

Long tail Keyword:

Use keywords in such a way that it should comprise of all those words which a user normally look for a particular information. Wide ranges of tools are available which will help you to track such keywords. Some of those tools are Sitemeter, Google Analytics, Mybloglog’s. Get long keywords from the mentioned tool bar and prepare a long set of keywords, and try to use those set of long keywords often within the content of the blog.

Social Bookmarking :

Submit the URL of your blog and your post, along with its content, to social networking sites, which will definitely help the blog to be crawled by the search engine a bit faster. The social bookmarking of the blog will help the blog to get a good ranking on its chosen keywords and help to boost the blog to the top of the results. Links from social bookmarking sites are the easiest kind to get so make make sure to take advantage of them. They are not quite as high value as say, a direct link from the front page of a major website, but they are fundamental to building site SEO in the early stages of any blog.

These are just a few way in which you can boost the SEO of your blog. Good luck! Post any questions in the comments below.

iPhone 5 Specs & Release Date

The iphone 4S release is expected today (October 4 2011) at 11:00 PDT (2:00PM EST)!

So far from today’s conference the features highlighted on the new iPhone are:

Now Confirmed Features on the new Iphone

  • The new iPhone will be a 4S model and not an iPhone 5 (good call CNet), though it still has plenty of cool new features.
  • It will have a new dual core A5 processor in it, apparently twice as fast as the iPhone 4’s.
  • Graphics will be 7 times more efficient in the iPhone 4S than the 4.
  • There will be a new antenna system to correct the reception issues.
  • The camera has an 8 megapixel sensor, can capture higher than 3264 x 2448 resolution and shoots 1080p video at 30 frames per second.
  • Today’s presenter not get specific if the iPhone was 4G as the standard seems to have wide boundaries but did say the new iPhone will have 5.8 Mbps upload and 14.4 Mbps download speeds.
  • The new iPhone will be both GSM and CDMA making it easy to bring it across borders.
  • Siri made it into the phone in a pretty large way. Rumoured to be called assistant, the app lets you speak pretty much anything into the phone and get an answers back. For example, if you want to know if there is a type of restaurant in the area you can simply ask your phone exactly that and it will give you the top 5 listings from Yelp based on your spoken parameters.
  • In the United States the phone will be 16GB for $199, 32GB for $299 and 64GB for $399 under contract. It will probably be about the same price in Canada.

Compared to the compiled rumours below it looks like the analysts were pretty close!

  • NFC Technology – The new iPhone 5 supports NFC technology the one which is used in Google’s Flagship Android phone, the Nexus S. With NFC technology, iPhone 5 will have extremely high data transfer rate between two devices.
  • Slimmer and lighter – The enclosure for the iphone 5 (or 4s) will be much more economically spaced, allowing for a slimmer and lighter iphone than it’s predecessor.
  • New Smart and brainy iPhone – Now with the new iphone5, you can even get answers to your questions like: What is the phone number of nearby hotel, Dispensary, taxi company? What Italian restaurant is nearby?
  • Facial Recognition – The iPhone will be able to identify  its owner through facial recognition. The phone can be unlocked and begin to function after recognizing its owner. We’ve seen similar technology in laptops when logging on to windows via face recognition. It no doubt come in handy for other apps.

  • iPhone 5 Camera – The new iPhone 5 will have an  8 megapixel camera and can record full HD video (720p we expect) with a capped recording time of 25 to 30 seconds. The camera is equipped with a Omnivision OV8820 sensor.
  • Case – The iphone enclosure will be slimmer and lighter than the iphone 4.
  • Battery Power – iPhone 5 comes with an awesome battery that exceeds the life of the 3G by 14 hours – 7 hours over 4G which makes it perfect for heavy use.
  • iPhone 5 Screen Size – 4.0 inches (scratch and shatter proof) Apple will be removing more of the nonsensitive borders on either side of the screen, reducing the size of the home button and possibly increase the size of the phone itself.
  • iPhone 5 Processor – The Iphone 5 will be powered  1.2GHz Dual Core Qualcomm wireless baseband chip.
  • iPhone 5 provides you with a variety of email alerts and notification. You can now assign alerts for different emails as well.

How iPhone 5 is different from iPhone 4?

  • The processor used in iPhone 5 is a 1.2GHz dual core processor which makes it faster than its former version in the iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4 had a complication regarding the antenna issue, attenuation in receiving signals, dropping off calls etc.  will be completely sorted out with iPhone 5.
  • The battery backup of iPhone 4 is high enough to last up to 48 hours despite of its heavy use. With iPhone 5 we expect no issues regarding the battery life. It will have an extended battery life of 14 hours on 3G and 7 hours on 4G with a stand by time of 600 hours.
  • The hardrive will be larger on the iPhone 5, a range of sizes will be offered up to  around 64Gb.
  • iPhone 5 is expected to have a 8 MP camera, an upgraded from iPhone 4’s  5MP,  to capture high quality pictures and videos.

iPhone 5 Release Date

The iPhone 5 is expected to launch sometime in the middle of August 2012 in the US and shortly after that in Canada. Most analysts are calling for a Canadian release date of October 1 2011 to Telus and Rogers.

The information in this article is based on the most reliable rumors we found. Final specs will likely differ, but this list gives us some good hints as to what we can expect.

Workouts and Live Fit Tips

First and foremost, this article is meant for people who are looking for a place to start and seeking out pointers. For people who are looking for a routine, stop reading now, I am only providing some do’s and don’ts based on my personal experience. What works for me, may not necessarily work for you.

Before you start, you should determine what body type you are, there are basically three main body types, ectomorphs, mesomorphs and endomorphs. The ectomorphs are the hard gainers, small frames, small shoulders and petit muscles (I would consider myself to be in this category when I first started). The mesomorphs are the lucky guys, these are the easy gainers, the hard bodied and naturally athletic people we all strive to become (in the most modest way possible, I would consider myself one of these now). And finally, the endomorphs; these are the bigger guys, big boned, round and soft muscled.
This article is aimed towards the smaller scrawnier guys who are looking to put more muscle and definition onto their frames and get some strength along the way. If you are looking for tips on losing weight, this may not be the article for you. . .however you can still get some pointers on where to start, so it wouldn’t hurt to read.

● Eat properly.
There is a reason why every live fit article you will ever read says the same, its true.
I curbed junk food and excessive drinking when I decided to work out. I know it sounds hard but it becomes habitual once you get into a routine of it, then it becomes second nature for you to avoid bad food.  Since carbs are you bodies main energy source, you should eat these in the morning, lots of fruits and vegetables so you burn these throughout the day and stick to meat in the evening, this will give you the protein your body needs to build and repair muscle.
I avoid the typical 3 meals a day, I eat smaller meals more frequently throughout the day (on average about 5 or 6). The reason for this is because your metabolism works like a furnace, the more you keep fueling it (with small meals and snacks) the more it burns (fat) and provides energy for you. Also, this is a minor detail that many people miss but CHEW YOUR FOOD! The smaller your food is, the more surface area there is for enzymes to catalyze their breakdown.
● Invest money into it (sort of)
This is kind of misleading but let me explain. You don’t need fancy supplements or pills to get in shape. If you show me a person who takes two pills a day vs. a person who runs two blocks a day I will bet you the latter is more in shape everytime. What I mean by investing money is that I personally found that when I bought supplements such as multi-vitamins and protein I was more motivated to workout simply because I put money towards it and didn’t want it to go to waste.
● Get into a routine and get a partner!
Honestly once you’re into a routine you find yourself out of place when you miss a day of working out. Start early in the day as possible so you get it out of the way and always go on Mondays, this will start you off on the right foot for the rest of the week. Also, workout with a partner if you can, one who is the same strength and fitness level as you preferably and you will motivate and push eachother. Plus it is invaluable to have a spotter on a bench press.
● Do body weight excersices and do a high intensity run to start your workout.
When I first started working out, I could not do a single pull-up or a single dip and this was extremely discouraging but you just need to be persistent and you’ll get yourself above the bar in no time. Your body has this amazing ability to adapt and become stronger as long as you put enough stress on it. Now pull-ups and dips are no problem and I use weights to increase the resistance. I recommend body weight exercises because  they don’t target specific muscles but rather groups of muscles together (I always found that the gymnasts were the most defined people in the Olympics) . Also, do a short but intense run to warm up to get your whole body started, don’t get yourself too tired or you’ll be dead  for the workout.

● Don’t workout in groups
Avoid this at all costs, I found that when I did this, there was a lot of just fooling around and talking as opposed to working out. If you can get a group of people that are determined and focused then it wouldn’t be so bad, as long as you can avoid taking long breaks in between in set.
●Avoid machines if you can
This is essential if you want to build muscle. Sure, you can lift more on a machine, but you’re restricted in your movements and you don’t use your stabilizers as much. Also, I’ve been told by a personal trainer that you’re prone to serious injuries using the leg extension machine and squatting on a smith machine. Why go through all the trouble with for fewer gains? Just stick to free weights.
●Don’t Give Up!
Sure when you first start, you can’t lift as much as the regulars at the gym, but everyone had to start at some point. You just need to get over that fear, and trust me, nothing will motivate you more than seeing some gains when you look in the mirror.
●Don’t slack off
I can’t tell you how often I go to the gym and see people just slacking off and not working hard. If you’re at the gym to workout then stay focused and give it everything you’ve got, otherwise you’re just wasting your time.
●Don’t stick to a routine
This is important because once you stick to a routine your body adapts and then it plateaus and you don’t get any gains. Change up your exercises often and don’t stick to what you’re comfortable doing, get outside your comfort zone and challenge yourself.

All in all, this is just my advice and you swallow it how you want, what works for me won’t necessarily work for everyone else. In case you’re wondering yes that is me in the picture, I wish I could show you a before picture but trust me, I was tiny. I’m not big but its an improvement!

The application on smartphones is of the largest interest, but television displays are also a future development idea. These displays produce a higher refresh rate than their OLED counterpart, while consuming less power for equal display quality. Can’t wait till this hits the market! Any other applications that people would like to see these used for?

Megapixel Marketing Scam

Don’t be fooled by claims that cameras with more megapixels are better, it’s not true. This is just a gimmick used to convince people that newer camera models with more megapixels are better than older ones.  Picture quality and picture resolution are two different things that camera manufacturers and salesmen often exploit to capitalize profits.

The camera industry has relied on the megapixel as a measure of quality;  that more is better. Sure, this would be important if you were to blow up the image, but the image quality itself is determined by the lens and the skill of the photographer. With a better lens, more light can be focused onto the sensor which gives sharper and more saturated images. And of course, if you know how to manipulate light with a camera then your photos will turn out better than someone with the most expensive DSLR  who doesn’t know how ISO, shutter speed and aperture correlate.

Here’s another way of looking at it;

“A megapixel is one million tiny colored dots in a photo. It seems logical that more megapixels would mean a sharper photo. In truth, though, it could just mean a terrible photo made of more dots.” –David Pogue.  For those of you who don’t know who David Pogue is, he’s a technology columnist for the New York Times but he’s better known for hosting the show, “It’s All Geek To Me” . He ran a test in which he took a series of identical photographs with a 5MP, 8MP and 13MP camera. He then posted the 3 pictures on a wall in Union Square Manhattan and for 45 minutes where dozens of people were asked to rank picture quality with respect to megapixels. Only one person managed to do so correctly.

So, if you’re going to get scammed by pharmaceutical companies claiming they have an effective weight loss pill, or if you’re going to get tricked by cosmetic companies who promote anti-aging creams, do not; after reading this article be fooled by the Megapixel Marketing Scam.

Easy Stereo Guide | Car Head Unit Installation

So you bought your first car and now you’ve been considering getting a new stereo deck with flashing lights and all the bells and whistle. Expensive? Maybe.  But if you read this guide you can learn how to do it, save money while doing it, and get that sweet stereo you want!

Firstly, car head units come in the standard size called “DIN”. This size is meant to fit all dash spaces, and if you are removing a larger head/stereo unit you can purchase a head unit dash kit that will fit over your new head unit, while hiding all the gaps that would now be exposed. Dash kits can run anywhere from $6 to $40, but be careful! I suggest to BUY ONLINE because most kits include parts for dozens of other makes and models which you will never use at all!

Now, the head unit. We suggest although it matters what your stereo sounds like, buying online will get you the best bang for your buck! Two of the FSB staff here learned this guide from experience and purchased $70 head units! They included front AUX IN for any input, CD player, BLUETOOTH A2DP Streaming and CALL features, a FRONT SIDE USB as well as  more presets than you could ever handle. Any brick and mortar store will cost you at least $100 and doesn’t come close to all of those features. Great buy! (comment if interested in head unit store!)

Next we suggest (before you buy anything) find an online guide for your make and specific model that explains step-by-step ho to remove the head unit. A simple google search of make model head unit removal” should do the trick. Some cars are trickier than others (mainly Japanese makes) so figure this out!

Once you have removed the head unit, find a wiring diagram online that corresponds to your car. FSB highly recommends

Unlike other wiring diagrams, they guide by the pins that are connected rather than the wire colour. I found that some head units have different wire colours than are widely described online, but knowing which pin is which saves the hassle and uncertainty.

Once you have a good wiring diagram, DIN dash kit, and head unit picked out, get it all together and install! New head unit will include a connector that you splice to your existing wires then connect to the unit, put it all together, and voila! Make sure you disconnect the battery before any installation or removal of pre-existing head unit.
