On-site Optimization for Law Firm Websites

Filed under: SEO — sketchcorner @ 7:04 pm

In order for law firms to gain a competitive edge in today’s online community they need to adapt an effective internet marketing plan. This includes search engine optimization strategies or “SEO”. SEO can be a challenging and overwhelming task for law firms to try to tackle themselves. It can be greatly beneficial to have lawyer SEO experts handle the task. The technicians and designers at WebShark360 have the skills and knowledge necessary to give your website the added advantage it needs to excel in today’s competitive market.
SEO requires more work than traditional Pay Per Click campaigns. However if it is done well, it can be incredibly effective in getting your site noticed online and save you a great deal of money as well.

On-Site Optimization Tips And Practices

On-site optimization is search engine optimization that takes place on your own website to boost its ranking in the results that come up when people type in searches. Techniques that are used include:
• Code optimization
• Internal structure
• Dynamic content
Code optimization – consists of things such as meta tags, title, keywords, descriptions and robot tags. These are usually not visible to visitors and consist mainly of “behind the scenes” work. Google is constantly changing the algorithm that they go by to determine rankings of sites. In recent years meta tags and meta keywords are increasingly becoming less significant in determining rankings. The site of Alexander Cohen, ESQ could be an example.

Internal structure and Navigation Of The Website

All in all this basically involves how the website is set up and consists of things such as how many clicks it takes for visitors to get to the inner pages on your site. If your website is too deep and hard for visitors to use, Google will pick up on this as well and it may possibly work against your ranking.
Dynamic content strategy – has become extremely important in SEO. Websites with a lot of quality content that readers want to read are rewarded by Google with higher rankings.

Removing Your Law Firm’s Past Social Media from Google Searches

Perhaps someone from your law firm violated Professional Rules of Conduct on the company’s Facebook page by posting a comment that boasted or celebrated a recent courtroom victory. Or maybe someone posted inappropriate and unprofessional pictures of attorneys or staff members partying at the recent holiday company event. Either way, the posts or photos show the firm in a negative light and you’d prefer that they not show up in Google search results. Although preventing information from showing up in searches after it has been posted is not the easiest thing to do, there is still hope for those who would rather keep unflattering posts and pictures hidden. The lawyer SEO professionals at some firms can help your firm handle your online marketing efforts and help you get noticed in the most positive light.

Many social media sites that are out there such as Facebook and Twitter provide privacy options for who can and can’t see the content that you post. You can change the name on your account or your privacy settings. This is however only effective for content that you post going forward. Is does little to remove content that you have posted previously. Facebook allows you to delete a previous post eliminating it from your page but it may still show up in Google search results. It is however possible to remove previous posts from Google searches. Here are the steps:
• Copy the URL for your social media profile
• Open Google’s “Content Removal Page”
• Click the “Create new removal request” button and paste the link to your profile
• On the next page, give a piece of information that is on the cached version in order to remove cached content relating to the page.
• Submit your request

It is important to keep in mind that not all requests for links to be removed will be granted and there is no set time for when the information will be removed.

San Jose News:Auto Camera Traffic Technology a Failure?

Filed under: auto/service — sketchcorner @ 11:11 pm

I just returned to San Jose, back in writing mode…According to the Associated Press, red-light camera program in Los Angeles will officially end July 31. The City Council and the city Police Commission voted to terminate the surveillance program because most of the motorists refused to pay their traffic tickets. The program has issued about 180,000 tickets since 2004, however, there is no significant consequences for not paying the auto fine. If the motorists simply ignore their tickets, no one can force them to pay because of the way the current traffic laws are written. Here in San Jose this is a big issue.

Authorities say that the photo enforcement program fines are voluntary and it is impossible to collect them without changing the law. The problem was that the camera tickets were issued to the owner of the car, not necessarily to the person that was driving it. That’s why the Superior Court wasn’t willing to strictly enforce red-light camera fine collections. The person who received the ticket may not be the driver who committed the traffic violation. My friend who runs a San Jose Auto Service has told me that his customers over at the said auto service center have confirmed this to him.
Saratoga Shell
1698 South De Anza Boulevard, San Jose, CA 95129
(408) 252-0862
Some motorists paid their fines because they didn’t know it was optional. Ironically, the authorities fined everyone who showed up in court and excused those who ignored the auto ticket. The collection agencies may try to collect the fines, however, the credit reports or the insurance premiums won’t be affected. If the owner of the vehicle makes a mistake of showing up in court, he will face the same penalties as a recipient of a traffic ticket personally issued by a police officer. Some service, hugh, imagine having your auto stolen and then getting a ticket from the thief.

OT:Some General Rules for Homebuyers

Filed under: real estate/wedding planner — sketchcorner @ 9:28 pm

This may be a little off tpoic as I just got back froma trip to Maui and was impressed by the real estate there, back in Denver, CO now…First-time homebuyers must follow few simple rules purchasing property. First of all, it is very important to choose the right mortgage. If you are looking at Maui real estate then you can bet the mortgage will probably be pretty high overall. Compare all the options and do all the financial calculations and your Electrical and so forth. Pay attention to the initial and future interest rates and stay away from the loans with prepayment penalties. It is better to get pre-approved than “pre-qualified” when looking for a home. Pre-approval means that all your information is verified by the lender and you already know the terms an conditions of your loan. Pre-qualification is just an educated guess.
It is important to provide correct information when you apply for a loan. Lying on your loan application can be a federal offense and later your lenders may call your loan due and payable. Sometimes, lenders themselves put misleading information on the client’s loan application to get them pre-approved, however, buyers end up with unaffordable monthly payments. It is better not to accumulate too many car loans and credit card debt when you are planning to buy a home. Buyers with an excessive credit may be denied a mortgage loan, especially if an expensive one like in Maui, for example.
Make sure to hire an independent home inspector to examine the property. Choose someone with a valid contractors license if you are here in Lakewood or any other applicable state contractror license like that for your Denver Co Electrical contractors overall. Trained professionals can detect problems with the property better than the buyer. Trying to save $300 on the home inspection can be a costly mistake. When remodeling your new home, don’t forget to check out a contractor by calling his former clients. Don’t give a contractor too much money upfront to purchase the materials and never pay cash. At worst, a con man will disappear with your check, at best he will use your money to finance another job. Try to avoid making all these mistakes and your homebuying process should go smoothly.

Designing the Perfect Wedding: The Planner

Filed under: real estate/wedding planner — sketchcorner @ 10:27 pm

I just got back to Lake Tahoe from Denver, CO. to look at real estate, back to writing. After the sun melted into the sea, we roasted marshmallows over a big bonfire. No one wanted to go home.
Naturally, Alisa and Stephen read heartfelt, loving vows that they had written for each other. There is something endearing about an unpretentious wedding. It seems to say that the marriage and the celebration of it are what counts—not how expensive it was. If you require a leading contractor I do recommend this firm.
A successful wedding is very well-planned and well-considered. It spotlights the bride and groom and their love and commitment. It should reflect who they are as human beings.
A wedding celebrates the hallowed relationship of two people and brings the friends and families of the two together, inviting them to share in the couple’s joy.
I heard someone suggest naming your tables after places that you have visited, or incorporate artwork created by either one of you. At one wedding, each table had puzzle pieces that when put together became a photo taken by the couple in their travels.
Remember that simple and sincere is elegant. It’s the love shared by two people that is beautiful.
This is the best time in history to get married. Incidentially if you have been married you may want to consider Denver Co Electrical contractors since it is a good time to look into it in Denver, CO or Lakewood now because of the market for electrical contractors. The old stale conventions are fast becoming obsolete. Conventions such as, “women must wear pastels only.” And, “only the bride may wear white.”
That’s not to say people don’t love and enjoy the traditions surrounding marriage. But now, a bride can wear anything she wants to get married in, the couple can have a ceremony that reflects who they are, can have a celebration that is unique and memorable.

Monster Communications Deal Making History

Filed under: internet/international business — sketchcorner @ 9:28 pm

Good to be back from Denver, had to see my attorney over there. The financial markets are a-buzz with the news this morning that AT&T plans to purchase T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom for $39 billion cash and stock. The deal could mean the new behemoth could become America’s largest wireless carrier. I am not sure what they are going to do with this and also and business internet phone plans or for that matter international calls from cell phone with calling cards and so forth.
As usual, what looks like a great thing to Wall Street, looks like another smack down for the little guy. T-Mobile had some of the better deals around for small consumers.
In a report in MarketWatch, written by Jennifer Waters this morning, under the title, “What AT&T’s buyout of T-Mobile means for you,” electronics editor at Consumer Reports magazine was quoted as saying, “It’s likely to make the [cell-phone] market more and more into a duopoly between AT&T and Verizon.” Did not mentioned the international voip. This reminds me of the deal that went down in Denver earlier.
For Wall Street, it’s the details that are of interest, such as the fact that JP Morgan is backing AT&T with a $20 billion bridge loan to make the deal with Deutsche Telekom happen. O)h by the way if you are in Denver of for that matter Highlands park and need a qualified Denver internet attorney who also does copywrite, trademark, business contract and also is a Denver software licensing attorney then I do suggest this leading firm. Also, AT&T will pay a “reverse break-up fee “of $3 billion in cash if the deal doesn’t go through. AT&T would also have to relinquish some of its rights to wireless spectrum and roaming capabilities to Deutsche Telekom.
CNBC Reporter Kate Kelly wrote a piece under the headline, “JP Morgan, AT&T Bet Big on Telecom Deal,” posted today, March 21, 2011. Kelly says, “In percentage terms, AT&T’s 7.6 percent reverse break-up fee is the largest in M&A history.

Prolotherapy and PRP on the Cutting Edge of Medical Technology

Filed under: prp/nursing homes — sketchcorner @ 11:22 pm

I just retuened from a Sun City nursing homes to see my grandmother and learned about PRP injections and prolotherapy treatments a while back, and once I read about it I started seeing quite a lot of mentiones of it here and there as a whole.
I thought to myself, if you have a sports injury such as a rotator cuff tear, then really why not try a treatment which is simple, harmless, and even inexpensive prior to to the intrusive surgery option?
More and more healthcare providers are coming to this conclusion, and prolotherapy is gaining steadily in popularity around the world. PRP which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy has been used (along with prolotherapy) for a variety of different conditions out there.
For example, Dr. Mitchell J. Bloom, graduated medical school in New York, completed his four year residency specialty training at The University of Rochester in 1989 in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, started his medical career as the Associate Medical Director of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at two hospitals in the U.S. and in 1989 he became the founder and Medical Director of The Centre for Mind – Body Medicine. Because PRP and prolotherapy injections are treatments aminly used in sports injury rehab you will not likely see it in Phoenix, Arizona and arizona luxury homes for the elderly as much. I am not saying it is never used in elderly care but PRP is just less likely to be seen in a arizona luxury homes or Sun City nursing home overall, that’s all.
Dr. Bloom is Board Certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, a Diplomat of The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and a registered specialist medical doctor with The Medical Council of New Zealand, a member of the Australasian Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine, New Zealand Association of Musculoskeletal Medicine, Australasian Integrative Medical Association and the American Academy of Pain Medicine.
Sr. Bloom is a passionate believer in prolotherapy, and only one eminent example of a provider of the treatment. From China to Japan, from Australia to Spain to the U.S. prolotherapy is becoming a staple in the treatment of chronic pain and musculoskeletal injury.
