The Importance of External Links

-1x-1As a cutting edge SEO Salt Lake City company what would you say is the best way for a web site to achieve a high rank in a search engine’s listings?

 

BF : The most effective method for a website to increase its search engine listings rank is to obtain external links.

 

What exactly is an external link?

 

BF : Simply put an external link is any hyperlink on another website that links back to the primary website.

 

Why is this important?

 

BF : External links pointing to a primary website are important because they are an easy and objective way to measure how popular the primary website happens to be.

 

So website rankings are determined primarily by the number of links pointing to them in combination with specific search terms?

 

BF : Primarily yes, but there are other factors at play as well. For example, if the linking domain is determined to untrustworthy then it will likely not help to augment the primary website’s rank.

 

What factors determine whether a website is trustworthy or not?

 

BF : A website containing nonsensical or spam content is typically flagged by web crawlers as untrustworthy. Also websites designed for the sole purpose of embedding a link to a primary website is also likely to be labeled as untrustworthy.

 

Are those types of websites easy to spot?

 

BF : It depends on the content. Many Utah SEO companies employ freelance writers to create content. When content is created by a person it is less likely to be flagged as spam by a search engine web crawler.

 

What other factors come into play?

 

BF : Web crawlers also look at the popularity of the referring website as well as the content relevancy relative to the primary webpage it links to. There are many other factors but the ones we have so far discussed are very important in terms of SEO.

To Name a Few Scents…

Improving Lives One Dirty Sock at a Time

organizing 2I am sitting here with a woman who works for a cleaning service Vancouver and I will start by asking her why do we even need to clean our homes?

 

CL : There are health reasons I suppose. If you are constantly breathing in dust and other air born pathogens your breathing and over all health will be negatively affected.

 

You sound like you don’t believe that is the most important reason for someone to have their house cleaned.

 

CL : That is highly perceptive of you. Yes, I believe the most important reason for a person to have their house cleaned is the psychological benefit.

 

Psychological benefit?

 

CL : Yes. When a person has their home cleaned especially by a maid service Vancouver he or she begins to achieve a certain peace of mind. I very much believe this.

 

How did you come to this belief? Was there a specific situation you experienced that revealed this to you?

 

CL : There was no one specific incident per se. I would just say that after many years of cleaning other people’s homes I have come to observe the effect it has on them. I sense more than anything that an aura of peace descend upon the person and their entire demeanor changes.

 

Why do you think this is?

 

CL : I think it has to do with the cleanliness but also with the fact that everything in their world has been put in its proper place. They know where to find things. They know that the burden of cleaning their world has been lifted from their shoulders.

 

That is pretty profound.

 

CL : It is profound and that is why I feel no shame in the work that I do. I know many people look down on house cleaning as menial labor. But I see it as a personal calling. I am improving the lives of people one discarded dirty sock and dust bunny at a time.

 

Successful ASVAB Preparation

flowersEvery candidate for enlistment in the United States Armed Services must take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery or ASVAB test prior to enlistment. This is true for each and every branch of the United States Armed Services including the U.S. Army, the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Marines Corps, the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Coast Guard as well as the U.S. National Guard. The ASVAB will test each candidate’s qualification for enlistment as well as determine which occupation within the United States Armed Services would be the best fit for the candidate.

 

Most successful candidates for enlistment prepared for the ASVAB by taking the ASVAB practice test. Taking the practice test will prepare the candidate for enlistment both by making them familiar with the test format as well as preparing them for the various subjects covered by the ASVAB test. The subject areas covered by the ASVAB test include (1) General Science, (2) Arithmetic Reasoning, (3) Word Knowledge, (4) Paragraph Comprehension, (5) Mathematics Knowledge, (6) Electronics Information, (7) Automotive and Shop Information, (8) Mechanical Comprehension, (9) Assembling Objects as well as (10) Verbal expression. The ASVAB test includes both a standardized, computer test format section and a written test format section.

 

When a candidate for enlistment into the United States Armed Services prepares for the ASVAB test by taking the ASVAB practice test he or she will likely substantially increase the probability of a successful outcome. It is possible for a candidate for enlistment into the United States Armed Services to preform well on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery without having taking a practice version of the test, however, it seems likely that most successful candidates do in fact take multiple versions of the practice version. For this reason and for this reason alone it is highly recommended that any candidate for enlistment prepare for the ASVAB by taking the practice ASVAB test.

An Interview with a Cleaning Lady

bathroomWhat’s the weirdest thing you have ever experienced while working for a cleaning service Vancouver?

 

CL : I do not feel comfortable answering that question. I feel like I am betraying the confidence of the people whose houses I clean.

 

Okay. No problem. I don’t want you to betray a confidence.

 

CL : That’s fine. Actually there is not that much to tell. Nothing exciting anyway.

 

Can you describe a typical day cleaning a house?

 

CL : Well, typically I clean between two and three houses a day. Usually the home owners are there when I arrive. A lot of the time however, once I get there they leave to run errands or some such. I think me being there makes them a little uncomfortable and that is the real reason why they choose to leave when I get there.

 

Have any of the home owners ever admitted this is the reason why they leave?

 

CL : No. That would be pretty awkward if they told me they were leaving because I made them feel uncomfortable, don’t you think?

 

Come to think of it, I guess you are right. Do the home owners trust you to lock up the house after you leave?

 

CL : Some do. Some conveniently arrive just when I am about to leave. Others tell me it is okay to close the door and leave it unlocked.

 

Do you think that working for a maid service Vancouver is difficult work?

 

CL : It can be at times but I got used to it. It is a little boring actually but I can get myself into a zone where it does not bother me most of the time.

 

Does the incentive of being paid deal with those types of issues most of the time?

 

CL : Yes. Of course. I know that I am being compensated for the work I do. This motivates me to get the job done and do a good job at that.

A Conversation with a Cleaning Lady

cleaning productsSo you are a cleaning lady? Is that correct?

 

CL : I am but I do not approve of that label.

 

What would you rather I call you?

 

CL : You could call me a house cleaner I suppose.

 

So you object to the term “lady”?

 

CL : It seems a little sexist or misogynist frankly.

 

I certainly did not mean it that way.

 

CL : I understand. We’re transitioning as a society in terms of values and sexual stereotypes. The language is lagging behind a bit so you cannot be blamed for using the wrong terminology during this time of transition. It is a fact that I work for a cleaning service Vancouver and it is also a fact that I am a lady. You said nothing untrue. There was no intentional falsehood or derogatory labeling I am sure.

 

Of course not. I was simply trying to establish the fact that the person with whom I am conversing is a woman who happens to work in a house cleaning Vancouver capacity.

 

CL : Well I think we have sufficiently established that fact. Did you happen to have a follow up question or are we done here?

 

I’m sensing some hostility here.

 

CL : Honestly, I feel a little hostile right now. I object to being labeled in general. I am a person and I have an independent existence which is separate from my occupation. My job does not define me as a person in other words.

 

I never said that.

 

CL : Yes, but you implied it.

I…

 

CL : I’m going to cut you off there. I know you’re going to deny trying to put me in the cleaning lady box. Maybe you did and maybe you didn’t. Maybe you did it unintentionally. If that’s the case what is the point of getting into an argument about it?

Is working from home to good to be true?

 

 

-1x-1

 

Working from home is most peoples dream come true.  But is working from home really a dream come true or is it going to be a waking nightmare.  Working from home scams can be found on the news all the time.  However there are many reasons why working from home could be the greatest thing to happen to you, that is if you do it through a legitimate company.

One in five Americans work from home at least once a week.  Most of those people are happier with their home and work life balance.  They find that being at home lets them be part of the fun that is going on at home.  Working from home appeals to certain groups of people more then others. Parents would rather work from home so that they can be part of daily workings of the family.  Military spouses prefer working at home, this could be because it is easier to work at home with all the moving around.  Retirees like working at home.  This allows them to bring in some extra money if they are unable to drive into work.  The last group are those with disabilities for pretty apparent reasons.

What are some motives for working at home?  Well the first reason is avoiding a commute.  This for lots of people is the biggest reason to work from home. This allows people to work at a great job and also live where they  want.  Working from home gives people more flexibility within their schedules. This allows parents especially to be apart of kids extra activities.   Studies have found that working from home increases productivity.  This could be a good selling point if you want to talk to your boss about working from home.   Working from home saves families money.  From gas in the car to paying for daycare money spent decreases.

Now with all this information that you have, you may be ready to talk to your boss about working from home.  Before you do that thought there are certain fields that have more working at home positions.   Healthcare is first on our list.  There is always a need for healthcare professionals. Medical transcribers work from home and some medical billing specialist work from home.  Education is the second field.  It really doesn’t matter what aspect of education you are in.  Lessons or tutoring most often takes place in the home.  The final field is sales and marketing.  This should be pretty easy to figure out why.

So with all this how do you if a business is real or not?  Start by doing tons of research into the company.  Look for reviews on the company or ask people that may have worked in the company. If it is a real company you should be able find things about it on Google or Yelp.  If you are looking for a company that allows  people work from home right off the bat then you could always join Scentsy or another company like it.

Live the Unlimited Dream and Join Scentsy

Mouldy_ClementineTo live the unlimited dream is precisely what it means to take the plunge and join Scentsy. Think of it as the act of becoming one with Scentsy. Allow yourself to become engulfed by Scentsy. Of course what I am speaking of is joining the Scentsy Salesforce. Which means I am talking about flexing your entrepreneurial muscle as it were. In doing so you will surround yourself with the sweet smell of success as well as the sweet smells of the all the products that Scentsy has to offer.

 

I know what you are thinking as you read these words that I have written. You are thinking that this is all too good to be true. You are thinking that the decision to join Scentsy sounds good in the abstract but once a person has joined themselves to Scentsy a whole new reality will set in. I suppose it may be true that the thought of selling Scentsy’s products is in fact a different thing altogether than the act of selling Scentsy’s products. But cannot this be said when comparing the thought of doing something and its actual execution?

 

Never has an act been accomplished that has looked the same as in its stage of planning. There is no shame in it. Heavens no! Life is a journey that we all set out upon with grand dreams. Sometimes we fail and sometimes we accomplish what we set out to achieve. But never does the achievement perfectly match the initial dream. This is especially true if the dream is as unlimited as the dream to join Scentsy. But in reality there is no need to worry. This is all for the best. What makes life exciting is its lack of predictability. Where would the excitement reside if the execution perfectly matched the dream?

Living With Roommates in Weber State Housing

One of the many challenging aspects of college life is the experience of learning to live peacefully with a roommate. There are many ways to deal with this challenge while living within the Weber State housing system. Probably the most important gesture that can be made by a roommate to maintain a peaceful living situation is to speak openly and honestly about any potential problems. Although roommates might be reluctant to step on the toes of each other at first, not being able to fully and honestly articulate your needs will lead to resentment festering under the surface. There is no way that festering resentment can ever give rise to a peaceful living situation.

 

On the other hand it is also important for roommates to maintain a certain degree of flexibility. Nobody can ever get what they want all the time and people occupying the same living space especially need to be able to compromise willingly from time to time. I say compromise willingly because when one compromises begrudgingly this will also create an energy of festering resentment. In order to compromise willingly the compromise must be made with an energy that is secure in the knowledge that over time the compromises will even out to both party’s benefit.

 

Finally, it must be acknowledged that some roommate situations will never be ideal. In some cases roommate that cannot get along must come up with rules that will define each roommates obligations relative to each other. Some roommates living within the Weber State housing system might choose to spend as little time possible with each other. Some might choose to separate entirely. For example, one might stay in the dorm and let the other leave to find an apartment. In some situations the only solution is to grin and bear it. In most cases, however, roommates tend to find a solution that is mutually beneficial.

 

Questions to Consider When Choosing a Wedding Venue

wedding_33When young couples intending to marry investigate the various wedding venues in Salt Lake City there are many competing factors to consider and evaluate. The first and most important factor to consider is whether the wedding venue fits within the couple’s budgetary constraints. Many times couples feel compelled to exceed their budgets because the wedding is such an important life event and the money issues can be sorted out at a later date and time. This would be a mistake, however, because money issues are a major cause of marriages breaking up statistically speaking. As such, it would not bode well to begin the wedding on the wrong foot financially speaking.

Another important factor to consider when choosing a wedding venue is what are the specific rules that the wedding venue requires adherence to and whether that fits with the couple’s vision for their special day. For example, in Utah especially there are many rules and regulations concerning the serving of alcoholic beverages. Wedding venues in Salt Lake City may have further restrictions upon these state imposed restrictions. Accordingly, it would probably be a good idea to investigate these or any other restrictions the venue might impose prior to entering into a contract with a prospective wedding venue.

Finally, a couple investigating a wedding venue should also consider whether the location will actually accommodate the number of people invited to the event itself. This consideration goes beyond whether the venue is large enough to accommodate the number of people invited but also whether the venue has the facilities necessary to accommodate the special needs of the people invited to the venue. For example, if the venue has a lot of stairs it might not be ideal if many elderly guests will be attending. Obviously, these three paragraphs merely scratch the surface of the many factors to consider when making this decision.
