Eight Things To Consider Before Investing In SEO

Founder and CEO of Markitors, a digital marketing company that connects small businesses with customers – and has a good time doing it.


SEO can be confusing. Build backlinks here, insert title tags there, make sure to optimize your page speed scores – where do you begin?

Over the years, I’ve gotten our website to rank on the first page worldwide for the keyword “digital marketing company,” a term that brings in the majority of our new business leads and fuels our company growth. Search engine optimization is certainly a high-value marketing tactic in a digital strategy but that doesn’t mean it happens overnight.

Here are a few things to consider before investing in SEO:

    1. Patience. It took me about three years to rank on the first page for “digital marketing company” and I’ve had clients wait three years to rank for their target keywords. The payoff is great, but it takes a lot of patience to get to that point.
    2. Impatience. Not every company can afford to wait until SEO kicks in. To see immediate results, companies need to be impatient and invest in digital marketing activities outside of SEO. Specifically, pay-per-click advertising (PPC) can deliver immediate results while determining whether a keyword is worth ranking for.
    1. What content will you create on an ongoing basis? Being viewed by Google as a “resource” helps with your ranking. To be viewed as a resource, you need links and content. Ask yourself if there are 52 blog posts (one per week) that should be created on your website. If you have good content, the path to ranking for target keywords will be easier.
    2. Not every organic search visit will convert. We’ve gotten sites to rank No. 1 for keywords, only to find out that those keywords had a low conversion rate. Ranking No. 1 for a search term isn’t always a good thing.
  1. When you do find a keyword that converts, do everything you can to protect that search position. When I was managing SEO for a client, we were ranking in the top 10 search positions and making $5,000 a week with no advertising costs. One day, Google dropped the search rankings back to the third page of search results. Revenue dried up. When you rank well for a converting keyword, monitor it and continue to build on it like you were still on page three.
  2. Competition dictates actions. Some industries are highly competitive when it comes to SEO. Do a competitive analysis of the companies controlling the top 20 search positions for your target keyword and see if how realistic it is to overtake them. How does your website stack up to the competition?
  3. What are the costs? Who is going to do the work and what do they cost? What are the expenses associated with doing business through your website? Adding up all the costs provides key insight into your return on investment.
  4. Profit is what matters. Investments need a positive return. Given the points above, how many sales would your business need to amass over a 12-month period to be profitable? Knowing the competitive landscape in search result pages, how long it takes to rank for a target keyword, and how much you’ll pay an SEO professional to get your website to rank – is it all worth it?
Forbes Agency Council is an invitation-only community for executives in successful public relations, media strategy, creative and advertising agencies. Do I qualify?

SEO offers incredible value to business owners and marketers. There are a couple key takeaways from these points that determine whether you are ready to invest in SEO.

  • Will you make more money than you spend?
  • Do you stand a chance at ranking for your high-converting keywords?

If the answers are “yes,” then good luck creating content, backlinking and monitoring Google Search Console. If the answers are “no,” then consider starting a Google AdWordsaccount and pay for your clicks.


First 5 things you should do with the OnePlus 5

So you’ve taken the plunge and bought yourself a OnePlus 5: congratulations. Once you’re done running your hands over that lovely metal finish, what should you do next? As with most OnePlus phones, the OnePlus 5 has a lot to offer if you know where to look. So here are the first five things you should do with your new OnePlus 5 to get the most of out it.

Set up the fingerprint sensor

This one’s a gimme really. You’ll be prompted to set up the OnePlus 5 fingerprint scanner during initial setup, but if you skipped that step in your rush to have a play around the software, be sure to go back and register your digits.

The OnePlus 5 fingerprint scanner is crazy fast and accurate, making unlocking your phone a breeze. It’s even located in a logical place. The scratch-resistant ceramic scanner doubles as a home button when using the capacitive keys but can still be used to unlock your phone if you switch to on-screen navigation buttons.

Remember, each digit you register slows down the unlocking process, but you can always mix and match two different fingers in one fingerprint scan and (usually) not lose any accuracy. Give it a shot and if you don’t like the results, just register separate fingerprints, but only as many as you actually plan to use. Just go to Settings > Security & fingerprint > Add fingerprint.

Enable dark mode

Don’t forget that, unlike many Android phones, OnePlus has full support for a system-wide dark theme. The fact that the OnePlus 5 has an AMOLED screen means you should strongly consider switching to the dark theme as your default, right out of the box.

That’s because AMOLED displays can actually save some battery life by using dark backgrounds and themes. Black pixels on an OLED display are actually turned off, unlike black pixels on an LCD panel, which are still backlit. The fewer pixels requiring power, the longer your battery will last. Plus it looks the business because OLED screens have great contrast and inky blacks. Just go to Settings > Display > Theme > Default/light/dark.

Set up gestures

Off-screen gestures are nothing new, but, just like double tap to wake, they’re incredibly useful to know. It’s just that it can be pretty easy to forget they’re on your phone unless you’re actively using them. Learning all the shortcuts the OnePlus 5 offers doesn’t take long, but making use of them will really speed up your experience and add to your enjoyment.

Some are enabled by default, while others will need to be switched on or set up. There’s double tap to wake, a camera shortcut (just double press the power button), or you can draw letters when the screen is off to launch an app or start the flashlight. The best thing of all is that these are fully customizable, just go to Settings > Gestures to set them all set up.

Enable battery percentage in the status bar

Really. This is super useful because you can quickly glance at your status bar rather than having to take a guess or pull down the notifications shade to see what battery percentage you have left. Just head to Settings > Status bar > Show battery percentage.

Set vibration intensity setting

OnePlus’ previous phones had horrible vibration motors, but that has now been fixed in the OnePlus 5. Not only that but you now have the option to tweak the intensity to exactly how you like it (light/medium/strong) for incoming calls, notifications and for general interactions like typing on the keyboard or pressing the capacitive keys.

Remember that while the stronger the intensity of the vibration (and the more places it is used) the greater the drain on your battery, haptic feedback barely consumes any power. Just jump into Settings > Sound & vibration > Vibration intensity > Incoming call/notifications/vibrate on tap to set it up. Don’t forget to use the Alert Slider to quickly and easily switch between your various sound profiles too.

What’s the first thing you did with your OnePlus 5? What else should new owners do?


10 things learnt from 10 years of blogging

10 things learnt from 10 years of blogging

Image via Shutterstock

For the past 10 years I have been writing a blog about Melbourne’s visual arts. My first blog post on Black Mark, Melbourne Art and Culture Critic was on February 16, 2008. It was ‘Faster Faster Pussycat’ about Phibs, Debs and other street artists painting a wall in Fitzroy. Now over a 1000 blog posts later this is what I have I learned about blogging.

    1. It can motivate you The first thing I learned was that writing a blog was motivation to do more in life; I was already going to many art exhibitions but now there was more motivation to go to places, meet people and do other fun things. Soon I started to get invitations to do more things and meet more people. Blogging changed my life; although it wasn’t actually the writing, nor the taking endless photos, or the posting online that really made the change.
    2. You probably won’t make money Do not expect to make money from advertising on your blog but there are a variety of other ways that you can use a blog professionally from promotion to networking. My friend Professor Alison Young, who I met through blogging, uses her blog Images to Live By, to introduce herself. Middle-aged academics are not a typical part of the street art/graffiti scene but now Alison is ‘Banksy favourite criminologist’.
    3. You can make friends I have made many new friends through writing the blog, which has improved the quality of my life. One reason why I have made so many friends blogging is that I mostly write about what other people are doing.
    4. You learn how to manage enemies I have learned how to deal with hostile comments, trolls and other idiots. You can’t predict what will get people to write hostile comments – it could be pigeons in Coburg. I have never shied away from controversy, writing posts about the persecution of Bill Henson and Paul Yore. When I have hostile comments I always remember that the person writing them will forget about it after a day or two. If they don’t, that I can always block them from making comments, but I’ve only had to do this once in ten years. Comments are not indicative of anything; no comment does not mean a bad post. Out of 1,077 post I have only had 2,099 comments; half the comments are my own because I generally reply to all comments but I avoid feeding trolls.
    5. You need a focus My blog is focused on Melbourne’s visual arts but I do post about other things on it. Having a clear focus for a blog is important but it is a balance between a very narrow focus and ranging too far. With 13 categories on my blog I’m not sure that I’ve got it right but it is a lesson I’ve learned.
    6. You get to do a lot of people watching Vox pops can make a good local blog post. These don’t have to be direct quotes, but observations on how people are reacting. I like to watch how small children react at art exhibitions; are they engaged or bored? ‘Why does a tree need a sweater?’ is an example of how one observation of an angry man made a successful blog post about yarn bombing.Another local blogger and people-watcher is the writer Jane Routley, who writes about her day job in Station Stories, life as a Station Assistant.
    7. You might get a book published In 2015 my first book, Sculpture of Melbourne, was published by Melbourne Books. I started writing and researching the book on my blog and before I started my blog I couldn’t have imagined writing a history of Melbourne’s public sculpture. I am now working on my second book about true art crimes in Melbourne.
    8. You should follow your analytics I learnt from watching my stats the there was an interest in Melbourne’s public sculpture. What the public wants to read about art is different to what many arts writers want to write about. There are a lot of different kinds of feedback that you can get on blogs from comments to stats. Lots of stats, numbers of subscribers, views, repeat views. In ten years I’ve had approximately 537,000 views from 155 countries around the world (still no views from Greenland, Cuba, Iran, South Sudan and various central African countries). Stats can be addictive – you get the idea.
    9. Blogs can be works of art.My blog isn’t but the artist Peter Tyndall’s blog was exhibited at the NGV in 2013’s Melbourne Now exhibition and there are other less notable examples.
    10. It is hard work but satisfying

You are your own boss, your own editor and you make your own deadlines. Ignore the advice about blogging that you have to post regularly. Writing a blog may not be for everyone but it has worked for me and I will continue.

10 things you might not know about Apple’s AirPods

Apple fans, we have good news and bad news. The bad news is that if you want to get your hands on Apple’s hot new truly wireless earbuds anytime soon, it’s the same old story. You can either keep your eyes glued to one of several available AirPods inventory tracking websites, or you can pay a bit of a premium and order them on Amazon. The good news is that if you’re among the thousands upon thousands of people who have already managed to score a pair of AirPods, we’re going to show you some cool features that have been hiding under your nose — or rather, in your ears — this whole time.

You can pair AirPods with any Bluetooth device. Many people are under the impression that AirPods use special wireless technology enabled by Apple’s W1 chip, and they only work with iPhones and iPads. This is a classic example of Apple’s marketing magic sending the wrong message. The W1 is cool and it simplifies the pairing process with compatible Apple devices, but AirPods are Bluetooth headphones. That’s right, regular old Bluetooth headphones. They can be paired with any Bluetooth device.

You can see the AirPods’ remaining charge in Control Center. With your AirPods connected to your iPhone, swipe up from the bottom of any screen to open the Control Center, then swipe over to the music tab. Tap on your AirPods and you’ll see the remaining charge.


You can see the AirPods’ remaining charge on the battery widget. Add the battery widget to your iPhone’s widgets page and you’ll always be a tap and a swipe away from knowing exactly how much juice is left in your AirPods. If you don’t see them listed in the widget right after you add it to your widgets page, tap the “show more” link on the widget.


You can see remaining charge in your AirPods and your case by opening the case next to your iPhone. If you have an Apple device equipped with the W1 chip (iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus only, for now) you can see the remaining charge in your AirPods and the carrying case simply by opening the case next to your phone. You’ll then see a little pop up that looks like this:


You can see the AirPods’ remaining charge on your Apple Watch. Have an Apple Watch? As long as your AirPods are connected to your iPhone, you can see the remaining charge in your AirPods by swiping up from the bottom of your Watch’s home screen and then tapping the battery button.


You can rename your AirPods. Open the Settings app on your iPhone and then tap Bluetooth. Tap the “i” icon next to your AirPods while they’re connected, and then on the next page tap the “Name” field.

You can change the double-tap function on AirPods. On that same screen within the AirPods settings, you’ll see a section titled “double-tap on AirPods.” Beneath that, you can change the setting so that a double-tap on an AirPod will play/pause/answer/hang up instead of waking Siri. You can also turn double-tap off completely.

You can transfer voice calls from your iPhone to your AirPods automatically. One last time on the same screen in the Settings app, make sure “Automatic Ear Detection” is toggled to on. As long as it is, you can move a voice call from your iPhone to your AirPods simply by placing one of them in your ear.

You can adjust the volume on your AirPods using the Apple Watch’s digital crown. This is an awesome tip for AirPods users who also have an Apple Watch. Open the Music app on your Watch while music is streaming to your AirPods and you can increase or decrease the volume on your AirPods simply by twisting the digital crown in either direction.

No, the AirPods don’t feature contactless wireless charging. Apple’s AirPods design is fantastic, but there’s a misconception out there that the charging case features contactless wireless charging. Sadly, that’s simply not true. The metal tip at the bottom of each AirPod stem is more than just a sleek design feature. Those metal tips also touch charging contacts when the AirPods are seated in the case.


5 things to know about this week’s Chargers stadium news

e Oakland Raiders are in town but all anyone wants to talk about is off-the-field Chargers stadium news.

We’re here to catch you up.

1. There’s a new/old City Council proposal.

Four San Diego City Council members — Myrtle Cole, Scott Sherman, Chris Cate and Lorie Zapf — are offering to lease the Qualcomm Stadium site for $1 a year for 99 years in what they say could be a new starting point for negotiations; it’s a similar idea to one the Chargers floated in 2003 to redevelop the Qualcomm Stadium site in Mission Valley. The four council members wrote a letter about it and sent it to Chargers chairman Dean Spanos, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and many NFL owners. Spanos isn’t a fan.

2. There’s a new deal with the Rams … if the Chargers want it.

At the NFL owners meeting in Dallas on Wednesday, NFL owners approved an agreement between the L.A. Rams and the Chargers, in case the Bolts move to L.A. and share a stadium with the Rams, who just moved there too. Fellow NFL owners are cool with it. Observers eyeing the Rams’ reception in L.A.? Less so.

3. This is what NFL owners and the commissioner say.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says there’s no acceptable plan for the Chargers at the time being.

“There is not a stadium proposal on the table that we think addresses the long term issues of the clubs and the communities, so we need to continue to work at it,” Goodell said.

4. Chargers CEO Dean Spanos is on the clock.

The Chargers have until Jan. 15 to decide to take up the offer to join the Rams in L.A. Spanos is keeping his cards close to his chest.

5. Even with the Raiders in town, it’s all anyone can talk about.

So what will happen? Are the Chargers leaving? Time, it seems, will soon tell

Interest rate cut today? 10 things to bear in mind

NEW DELHI: Today, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will make its first monetary policy review announcement since high value notes were scrapped on November 8. The announcement is expected at 2:30 pm. Here are 10 things to bear in mind ahead of the announcement.

1. Most analysts expect the RBI to cut the repo rate+ – rate at which it lends money to banks – by 25 basis points (bps) to six percent. If that happens, the interest rate will be the lowest it has been in six years.

2. Some analysts expect an even deeper 50 bps cut to combat the several cash crunch following the November 8 decision to scrap Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.

3. The last rate cut was in October, when the RBI cut the repo rate by 25 to 6.25 per cent.

4. While the rate cut will raise concerns about inflation, analysts see the cut also as a “growth supportive stance to offset downside risks to growth from the demonetisation effort,” as Radhika Rao, an economist with DBS Bank, wrote in a note, according to Reuters.

5. A cut in the repo rate should ideally bring down banks’ borrowing costs, eventually leading to lower loan rates for companies and individuals.

6. Therefore, a rate cut is expected to help revive private investments in an atmosphere where short-term growth is likely to be impacted.

7. The country’s economy grew 7.3 percent between July and September+ , the fastest rate in the world for an economy of its size. November inflation was at 4%, which HDFC Bank termed “comfortable territory”.8. Brokerage firm Bank of America Merrill Lynch meanwhile cut its GDP growth forecast to 6.9 per cent from the earlier 7.7 per cent, saying that disruption to economic activity caused by demonetisation will be 0.3-0.5 per cent of GDP every month.
9. Merrill Lynch also said the RBI will now likely wait until April 2017 for the next rate cut.

10. Ahead of today’s rate cut announcement,

If you’ve been inquisitive about business and advertising within the final 5 years or so, possibilities are you have heard this phrase so much you’re prepared to cry: “Create Precious Content material on your possibilities and customers so they may understand, like, and agree with you.”

It is smooth to poke fun, however It is truly true recommendation — when achieved nicely.

The problem is, whilst the common Joe hears that (that means, all people who does not have time to spend hours a day researching advertising and marketing techniques), he thinks: “All proper…Time to pump out a few weblog posts. Now not certain what to put in writing about, but who cares? Just has to be Treasured.”

It’s that mentality that leads to blog posts like “Interesting Information about [insert random subject]” and, my non-public preferred, the traditional “[insert number] Reasons You Need My Agency.”

If I Simply described one in every of your blog posts, don’t worry, It’s Not your fault. you are doing what you think is right. The hassle is, you’re simplest guessing. you’re Not positive what your audience surely wants to recognise approximately, so that you give you some subjects in your own, because you are creative like that.

When you examine this, you will recognise higher. And next time that concept creeps in your head, permit it meander proper lower back out, in no way to go back. Instead, do that: give you blog subjects human beings actually want to study.

Visit the Google keyword Planner and enter the primary category (keyword) of your commercial enterprise into the top textual content field and click on “Get Thoughts.”

Click on the “key-word Thoughts” tab Just under the bar graph

Elective: At the pinnacle of the listing of keywords, Now not the man or woman keyword you Simply look for, Click on the heading of the “Avg. Monthly Searches” column. This may sort by means of seek extent so that you see the maximum searched keywords first. Preserve in mind higher seek quantity generally approach greater competition.

Scroll down and write down each keyword that could be turned into a blog submit. For example, after I entered entrepreneur as my essential key-word, I were given such things as:

Traits of an entrepreneur
Becoming an entrepreneur
Entrepreneur abilties
I tend to begin via seeking out keywords that have around 1,000 searches a month or extra, and below 10,000 searches a month. From time to time I look for key phrases with underneath five,000 searches a month, Simply due to the fact some thing over that quantity of seek extent generally has a ton of competition.

Once you have a listing of 20 to 30 keywords, flow to the next step.

2: Use KWFinder.Com to check competitiveness.
KWFinder.Com is a website so one can display you ways tough it is to rank for positive key phrases. That is an high-quality resource whilst you’re trying to decide what to put in writing about, however you only get a handful of searches every day with a loose account.

Now on the left hand side Click on the “Questions” link (beneath “through Kind”), and also you should see a listing of questions about your key-word.

below every question, you have to see the phrase “Follow” with a gray container subsequent to it that has quite a number in it. That wide variety is the number of individuals who are following that query. In different phrases, It really is how many people are interested in that question. search for questions which have a big quantity of followers, and growth, there’s a list of blog publish titles to be able to pick out from.

Preserve in thoughts, when you get some Ideas from Quora, It’s perfectly okay to get better-and-forth among Quora, Google’s key-word Planner and KWFinder while you discover humans using keywords that weren’t on your list at the beginning.

For instance, one of the maximum popular questions about Beginning a commercial enterprise had to do with low cost enterprise Ideas, so I would head over to Google’s keyword Planner to make certain “low cost business Ideas” is getting searched on a Monthly foundation. And of route it’s miles. It’s getting searched 2,400 instances a month.

Now I head over to KWFinder.Com, in which it looks as if “low cost business Thoughts” has a issue rating of fifty five. Now not incredible, but I will go together with it for now. Alternatively, “business Thoughts with low investment” is on KWFinder’s listing of cautioned keywords, and it truely gets searched approximately four,four hundred instances a month with a trouble of 40, so that might be a better keyword to head for. same Content, just a barely specific target keyword.

once I searched specifically for “enterprise Ideas with low funding” in KWFinder, one keyword that got here up was “precise commercial enterprise Ideas”. That key-word gets 6,six hundred searches according to month and has a difficulty of 22. That’s clearly one to look into.

So “commercial enterprise Thoughts with low funding” and “specific enterprise Thoughts” are each taking place my listing of key phrases and I will probable write an in-depth post approximately the subject of low cost (or low investment) commercial enterprise Ideas.

last step.
Now that we’ve got come up with a few key phrases and optimistically some blog publish Thoughts, it’s time to scope out the competition so we are able to ensure our submit will truly be excellent sufficient to genuinely rank on the primary web page. So head over to Google and look for the key-word you have determined to put in writing your post about. As an instance, I might look for “commercial enterprise Ideas with low funding”.

Now read through the top three to five articles, paying specific interest to the very first one. What is lacking from this article? Is it too brief? Did they skip some thing? Perhaps It’s an vintage publish and the records is outdated.

read the remarks, too. See what human beings are announcing and be aware what they’re adding to the conversation. most of the time you’ll have at the least one or human beings asking questions that they feel the put up failed to answer absolutely. Take what you examine from examining the ones posts, and use it to outshine them and leap-frog them on Google.

Whew, that became a lot. but you are tons higher off now that you recognise one true way to pick out a weblog put up topic.

So subsequent time you are tempted to “create Treasured Content” through developing with something you think is a fab topic to write approximately, forestall. Alternatively, do the studies required to write something you realize will honestly flow the needle. Your enterprise will thank you later.
