5 Important SEO Tips for Self Defense Websites

5 Important SEO Tips for Self Defense Websites

After last year’s election, the number of Americans taking self-defense classes has soared. This is especially true for women and minorities, many of whom no longer feel safe.

This means that self defense websites can expect to see an increase in traffic, as long as they follow best practices for SEO.

Read on, to learn the best SEO tips for self defense sites.

Top SEO Tips for Self Defense Websites
Over the last 5-6 years, Google continues to release updates after updates, changing the way we think about SEO.

Here are 5 SEO tips you should know:

1. Reconsider your Keywords

When was the last time you thought about the keywords you were targeting? It’s a waste of time to focus on keywords that potential clients and customers are not even looking for.

Your keywords will be related to the topic you’re visiting. For example, if you blog about firearms, you might have keywords like “TBOTECH”, “most popular stun gun” etc.

You need to take the time to find the best keywords – keywords that turn into clients or purchases. This is often the case where long tail keywords come in, and this is a great way for you to rank higher on Google based on general search.

Instead of “self-defense class,” consider something like “The best defensive class in Chicago”. And instead of “self defense tips,” the long tail option is “self-defense tip for women”.

2. Step Up Your Content Marketing

Likes or hates it, content marketing is here to stay. And it remains one of the best ways for you to improve your SEO, attract new clients, and position your business as an expert in the world of self-defense.

Gone are the days when you can tap an article, put it in keywords, and climb the rankings. Google is too smart for that. Instead, you need to write useful, unique, and optimized content that will naturally appeal to readers and search engines.

3. Optimize For Mobile

Google prefers on mobile-friendly sites. But it’s not enough just to choose a mobile-friendly theme. This should be given. Instead, you need to design it to be better and faster.

Use medium resolution images, turn autoplay on your videos, show your content first. There are many things you can do to show Google that your site is appealing to mobile users.

4. Aiming for Trailers

When asking a question on Google, you’ll often get a small box of content that answers that question. The box includes a link back to your site, and that is gold SEO.

To make this happen on your website, you need to focus on answering questions about self-defense and make sure you write it in bullets and steps.

5. Optimize Your Site

Finally, you need to check if your website is optimized properly. These include:

Site title
Home meta description
Title subtitles and meta tags
Call to action
Title and subheadings
When possible, this should include a descriptive copy of your website. Include your keywords, and encourage visitors to click and read your content.

Lose Yourself in Delft’s World Famous Pottery and Painting

Lose Yourself in Delft’s World Famous Pottery and Painting

One thing is for certain: there is nothing in the world quite like Dutch art and craftsmanship. It’s no wonder, then, that Delft, a 750-year-old town, is so famous for its painting and pottery, which is why it makes the perfect final stop on the tour aboard Panache when you’re barging in Holland.
When you lay your eyes on Delft’s historic streets and picturesque canals, you’ll understand why so many great painters and crafters were inspired to recreate them in their masterpieces. The town gave its name to the Delft School, which saw artists such as Pieter de Hoogh, Carel Fabritius and Nicolaes Maes pass through its doors. But perhaps the town’s most famous son was Johannes Vermeer, whose paintings can be found all over the world.

 

Johannes Vermeer

Vermeer’s paintings offer an extraordinary glimpse into what life was like for the people of Delft in the seventeenth century. While Vermeer’s greatest creation is widely considered to be the Girl with a Pearl Earring, it is also awe-inspiring to see the scenery that inspired his portrayals of everyday life firsthand.

Potter About Delft’s History

The Netherlands’ history is rich with arts and culture, and Delft’s is no different. The local pottery industry reaches back more than three centuries to the country’s prosperous trade relationship with China. The activities of the Dutch East India Trading Company brought valuable Chinese porcelain back to Dutch shores, which sparked a love affair with the craft.

However, trading fell off with the death of the Wanli Emperor in 1620. Dutch potters began to experiment with techniques that would imitate the highly desirable porcelain. They developed thin earthenware that they first covered with a white glaze, followed by a clear one. The beautiful blue surfaces that were produced looked similar to Chinese porcelain, and the brilliant colour came to be known as ‘Delft blue’.

A huge disaster in the town resulted in the decline of the brewing industry, but strengthened that of local pottery. In 1654, The Thunderclap, a gunpowder explosion that destroyed large parts of the town and killed and wounded many people, meant that potters were able to take advantage of the breweries that had been left empty to expand their factories and output.

Over the next 100 years, the Delft pottery grew and grew to the legacy it still holds today. On your visit, be sure to stop by the Royal Delft Pottery, which is the town’s last remaining earthenware factory. Here potters lovingly handcraft everything you see. Why not take home the perfect memento of your time barging in Holland?

Final Stop

For all of these reasons and many more, Delft is the ideal final destination on board Panache. There is arguably no better way to experience the local heritage and culture than by barging in Holland.

Paul Newman is the Marketing and E-Systems Executive for European Waterways, the UK’s most respected provider of luxury all-inclusive barge holidays. If you’re looking for a unique holiday experience, European Waterways can take you barging in Holland, France, Italy and other wonderful destinations in Europe. Part of a team of experienced barging aficionados, Paul is first in line to endorse the perks of a slow-paced barge cruise to anyone looking for a unique holiday experience.

Take a Leap Into the Unknown: 4 Exciting Bungee Jump Techniques!

Take a Leap Into the Unknown: 4 Exciting Bungee Jump Techniques!

For many, a bungee jump is a once-in-a-lifetime, adrenaline-filled activity that you’ll remember forever – and you’ll forever be able to tell people about your jump! There are many ways to skin a cat, and some of these bungee jump techniques will make your jump even more memorable. Whether you’re a seasoned jumper or will only take the plunge once in your life, there is a thrilling technique out there for you.
Feel Like You Can Fly Techniques!

 

The Swallow Dive is one of the most popular jump styles in use today, and for good reason! Especially beloved by adrenaline seekers, you have to take a big running jump off the platform with your arms stretched out as wide as possible (like a swallow). This will let you soar through the sky to the ground below. There will be a huge adrenaline rush as you feel like you’re flying through the air… and as an added bonus, as the cord begins stretching you will be pointing downwards – perfect for a smooth and easy deceleration.

Be aware: if the body harness you’re kitted out with has a front cord attachment, ensure you twist 180 degrees so by the time the cord tightens out you’re facing upwards. Don’t worry, your instructor will know all this! But the more you know before your jump, the more relaxed you’ll be before the big event.

The Bat Drop is a little trickier than the swallow dive, and much more daring! For this jump style you’ll have to be positioned hanging upside down (!!!) on the edge of the platform. Someone else will need to be holding your feet, and once they release you you’ll shoot off like a bat or vampire into the darkness of the night!

The Back Dive is another jump which is considered to be a little more difficult. You’ll really need to put your all into launching off the platform so that when you’re at the end of your fall, your head will be pointing straight down. Just like the swallow dive, be sure to be facing upwards at the end of your jump if you happen to be using a front-connected body harness.

The Elevator is a technique you’ll definitely have seen somewhere before. You simply step off the platform with your feet pointing down at the ground, and when you reach the end of the bungee you’ll be automatically flipped the right way round.

Top tip: only do the Elevator if you have access to a rubber (Kiwi/ Euro) cord to avoid hurting yourself and doing your ankles some serious harm!

Jump Safely, Jump Insured

Whether you’re going for the jump of a lifetime or plan to tick off all of our suggested bungee jump techniques, make sure your travel insurance covers you. Let’s Go Insure offers cover for one or multiple jumps, and our friendly staff are on hand to help you with getting covered for all of your daredevil antics!

Learn to Sell Pets Online Safely

Learn to Sell Pets Online Safely

selling pets online If you are selling pets online, you are in the business of bringing happiness to others.

However, to protect the integrity of your business as well as your animal safety, you need to take serious precautions.

Follow the advice in this post to learn how to build your web presence, and how to sell your animals safely to competent and competent owners over the Internet.

Build Your Web Presence
Before we get into how to sell pets online properly, let’s first discuss how you can build a web presence that lets customers know you as a breeder.

One of the most important things you can do is immediately sign up for the Better Business Bureau. This way, when customers find your site, they can see that you have a clean record and learn more about your past customers.

Plus, registering with BBB proves to your customers that you are authoritative, invest in the health and wellbeing of your animals, and committed to customer service.

Next, it’s time to focus on your site. Make sure you include lots of images of your animals (social media will also be a great marketing opportunity for you.) Blog about your process, include the “frequently asked questions” section and include your experience.

Also, it does not hurt to include glowing testimonials from your past customers. For a good example of a properly done dog website, see Crump’s Bullies. Their homepage sites are connected to their social media accounts, clearly showing their contact information, and using images immediately linked to their target market.

How to Screen Potential Owners
As a rancher, you are responsible for ensuring that your animals will go to a safe environment where they will be well taken care of.

These days, everybody wants pets. In fact, the millennium prioritizes animal ownership of home ownership and even romantic relationships! However, just because someone wants a pet, does not mean they are eligible to have it.

Be specific about certain animal traits. For example, is it more hyper than others? Is that a bathroom control problem? Have you provided training? This will help ensure owners know what to expect, and whether they can provide the needed care or not.

Also, make sure you connect with potential owners via email. Ask about the age of the children they have at home, how they plan to give care and food, and if they have ever had an animal before.

Also, do not be afraid to ask where they will take care of the animals, and why they want to buy pets. You need to know your animals will not spend their lives in a cage or be used for terrible purposes.

You Are Ready to Sell Pets Online
Thanks to this post, now you have all the information you need to sell pets safely online and build your overall web presence.

Breeding and selling pets is a fun career that brings joy to many people. Make sure your animals find their dream home by following the advice on this post.

Welcome to Fall

Welcome to Fall

I have just spent a week in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The foliage was just starting to turn into a wonderful koliascope of colors. Unseasonably warm then while there, we are now getting back to the usual temperatures of October. The gardens are wilting down, the skins on the tomatoes are thicker, canning and freezing are in full operation. Corn stalks are turning brown in the fields, and as the leaves die back, acres of bright orange pumpkins are evident against the backdrop of browning leaves. Sumacs along the edge of the swamps are bright red and are probably the earliest of the changing season.
The tree leaves, although still changing color here, are starting to drop. They go in stages. Most noticeable are the maples as they seem to go overnight. The oaks, that are most abundant in this area, go more slowly. Many do not lose all of their leaves over the fall but wait for spring and new growth. All I really know is that by Thanksgiving I will be knee deep in leaves and thanking God for leaf blowers.

 

Right now the houses on the street are slowly starting to sport scarecrows, orange lights, pumpkins, and corn stalks. Soon the neighborhood children will be buying and making costumes for trick-or-treating. I’m stocking up on candy bars as there will be about one hundred little ones knocking at my door. Some not so little ones, too. I chuckle at the less than one-year-olds that come in their parents’ arms, knowing full well that these babe-in-arms will get none of the bounties.

It is a wonderful time of year. With a chill in the air, it is a great time for walking and hiking. Despite a year with a heavy infestation of gypsy moths, the oak trees have put out an abundance of acorns. That means that with this bounty the squirrels will have been just as busy reproducing large litters. That may mean a problem for next year. If the season does not provide for the newcomers, then the population of squirrels will dwindle again. They come and go from year to year.

It’s the time of year that I start looking towards my own Halloween decorating. I don’t do a lot, but do enjoy carving pumpkins. Choosing from a collection of patterns that were collected over the years, I pick them based on available time and the effort required to do the work. There is a ghost that hangs from a tree to welcome the kids with a cackle. Using white paper bags and black silhouettes, luminaria lines the walk up to the front door. The advent of flickering battery operated lights take away the danger of flames in the pumpkins and luminaria. Other smaller lights and decorations are brought out of storage. The costume for the dog involves a bandana and motorcycle hat. My own costume comes from a collection in that same storage area and varies from year to year. With a motorcycle dog, then a motorcycle Mama may end up being the choice.

Not a big fan of roasted pumpkin seeds, when the guts are pulled from the pumpkins, I put the collection in a large shallow roasting pan. This pan is placed on a storage box on the deck just outside of the living room window. From my recliner, I am privy to a private show of the squirrels coming up to feed on them. It keeps them out of the bird feeders. The biggest male always stakes his claim on the pan of seeds, chasing away all others. Somehow that just doesn’t seem fair.

The 5 Most Famous Hunters of All Time

The 5 Most Famous Hunters of All Time

Hunting is the stuff of legend.

But there is nothing like a famous hunting story to inspire and excite you on your way to a hunting farm.

In fact, 74% of Americans support hunting and are happy with the sensation.

In this article, I will describe the five most famous hunters – and who put them at the top of the list.

Come in!

Ernest Hemingway
While known as the author of classics such as The Old Man and the Sea and For Whom the Bell Tolls, Hemingway also has a greater appetite than just for adventure.

For much of his life, Hemingway had spent his winter in Key West, where he had giant marine fishing.

In summer, he will go to Wyoming, where he hunts games like deer and grizzly bears.

His quest for a bigger and bigger adventure took him on a 10-week safari in East Africa. He spends a lot of time hunting for human eaters on the Serengeti plains.

Ishi
In 1865, settler attacks left the population of Yahi almost extinct. By the early 1900s, Ishi was the only living Yahi.

In 1911, locals found him looking for food for meat. Professor at the University of California, Berkeley took him as a research assistant.

His knowledge of Yahi’s bow and arrow enabled him to train a professor at the college, Saxton Pope – now regarded father as a modern bowhunting.

The legend of Ishi remains one of the most influential figures in bowhunting, whether in nature or on hunting farms.

Theodore Roosevelt
Theodore Roosevelt, president of 26 United States, loves the sensation of hunting.

The largest expedition of T.R is a nine-month safari in Africa that hunts the most famous (and dangerous) animal on the continent.

He also has experience in wild game in the United States, and also does hunting expeditions near the Amazon in South America.

But Roosevelt’s greatest contribution to this sport is its preservation. T.R. leading the way to parks and sustainable hunting farms.

Jim Corbett
Corbett was born to an English-Irish parent in India. When he was 18, he took a job as a fuel inspector by train, hunting dangerous animals as a hobby.

As his fame grew, Jim realized that protecting tigers was as important as defending the citizens they were cruel.

In 1947, he moved from India to Kenya, where he wrote a series of books on human-eaten animals being hunted with great success.

He is the namesake of Corbett National Park in northern India.

Davy Crockett
Forget the high story of Davy Crockett. The real story of this legendary pioneer is astonishing.

Crockett’s friends think of him as a sniper. She won a regular shoot contest-even as a teenager.

At the time of primitive weapons and ammunition, Crockett still managed to kill bears and mountain lions at a spectacular speed today.

According to his calculations, he killed 105 bears-in a year.

Become a Legend on a hunting farm
Hunting is not quickly pocketing the greatest game or getting the sensation of a chase.

Safaris and expeditions are the foundation of many great legends, both in the United States and abroad. If you’re looking for a real hunting feel, make sure to visit one of our hunting farms.

Lego’s “Women of NASA” set is already a huge hit

Lego’s “Women of NASA” set is already a huge hit

Sally Ride made history back in 1983, when she became the first American woman to travel into outer space. Now, Ride and three other women who were NASA pioneers are being honored with their own Lego likenesses.

The “Women of NASA” Lego set went on sale this week, and quickly became the top-selling toy on Amazon.

Mae Jemison was the first African-American woman in space. Her figure stands alongside Ride’s next to a Lego version of the space shuttle.

But the toys do not just honor astronauts – astronomer Nancy G. Roman is also depicted. She was NASA’s first female executive and is often credited with being the mother of the Hubble Space Telescope, which transmitted stunning pictures of deep space back to earth.

Computer scientist Margaret Hamilton makes up another figurine in the set. She wrote the software code that helped the Apollo 11 crew land safely on the moon, and last year was awarded the presidential Medal of Freedom.

The women of NASA was originally thought up by science writer Maia Weinstock.

“We want to focus on NASA history,” Weinstock said.

She submitted the plans to Lego in 2016, and the project received the 10,000 votes it needed to proceed in a little more than two weeks.

By shrinking them down to a little more than an inch, Weinstock hopes these womens’ achievements will be magnified.

“You can never have enough that women celebrate women who have been underappreciated in history,” she said.

The Next Scroll of Dice for the Gambling Industry

The Next Scroll of Dice for the Gambling Industry

Casinos come and go, but one thing is certain – the gambling industry is here to stay. The way people gamble, however, may make some changes in the near future.

Game revenue on the Las Vegas Strip has begun to show signs of stagnation. Few people, the Millenials, traveled to Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and other casinos across the country. To revive the gambling industry in the eyes of the younger target market, the casino sees the next big thing.

Here are some trends to watch out for in the future of gambling.

Gambling-Based Gambling
Unobtrusive lever-pulling slot machines are a thing of the past. New gamblers want more challenges.

The latest generation of gamblers has grown up playing various video games. From first person shooters to multiplayer role-playing games, Millenials has played it all. Professional video games, or eSports, bring the world by storm with expected revenues of more than a billion dollars.

Arcade-style games will allow friends to challenge each other and take advantage of their video game prowess. The choice of virtual reality and multiplayer will extend the coverage of traditional casino games.

Sports betting
The new generation does not have the same classic casino spirit spirit as their parents and grandparents. Instead, they continue to show the same level of enthusiasm for the sport.

In this age of technology, the predictions of baseballs, basketball, and soccer today for fantasy sports leagues that continue to grow throughout the country have never been so easy. Fantasy sports leagues are springing up everywhere. Circles of friends, offices, and various online platforms extend the reach of sports betting.

Currently, sports betting is illegal. However, Congress is in the process of reviewing federal gambling laws and legislation on sports betting, online games, and other new-age gambling forms. While still at the discussion table, most sports experts agree that ultimately legalization is inevitable.

Online and Mobile Casinos
Online casinos enable gambling from the comfort of your own home. Mobile games now make gambling comfortable anywhere.

Increased accessibility to gaming offers a great boost to the casino industry. Players can access the casino from any time or location. They can participate in long distance multiplayer tournaments. They can even withdraw bets directly from their credit card account.

The online and mobile platform also makes it possible to introduce new and exciting features to play the game. Virtual reality is one such feature. VR and other technologies can make the online gaming experience noticeably more real.

Perhaps the main disadvantage of this trend is the imminent hacking hazard. Player accounts need to guarantee the highest level of security to keep customers.

The Future of Gambling
Traditional forms of gambling such as outdated slots. Audiences of new gamers are more than just unthinkingly pulling a lever or pressing a button.

Interactive and interactive platforms, skill-based games, is the future of the casino industry. The casinos that are installing this adaptation will flourish. Those who hold the classic game form may be left behind.

Humboldt Current: blood from the Galapagos Islands

Humboldt Current: blood from the Galapagos Islands

The uniqueness of life on the Galapagos Islands is well documented and, for nature lovers, a visit to this region can be an inspiring and life-changing experience. For those who embark on the Galapagos wildlife voyage, understanding the reasons behind its extreme diversity can contribute to a deeper appreciation of this remarkable part of the world.
Natural phenomena Humboldt Current: blood from the Galapagos Islands

There is one natural phenomenon that can take great credit for the abundance and diversity of marine and terrestrial animals in the archipelago. The cool Humboldt now comes from Antarctica, driven by strong winds to flow to the west coast of South America and push the cool waters toward the path through the Galapagos Islands. It brings with it the nutrients it collects from dead and rotten objects on the seafloor, and when mixed with the warm Southern Equatorial currents, these nutrients rise from deep to maintain the plankton that form the basis of the food chain on the island. .

This current affects every aspect of life, both on land and around the ocean.

Water Temperature: Some people who visit Galapagos wildlife voyage are stunned by the cold water temperature, due to the Humboldt current. June to December is when the ocean is the coldest, because these months are marked by rising currents. From November to May, the flow is still there, but significantly weaker, allowing warmer waters to reach the islands. Humboldt Current: blood from the Galapagos Islands

Weather Pattern: The current is also responsible for two different seasons experienced in the archipelago: cool winters and warmer monsoon seasons. In the dry months (from June to October), strong trade winds cause currents to rise. Because the waters around the island are cooler, less evaporation, and therefore fewer rain clouds are formed. While Galapagos wildlife cruises can be enjoyed at any time of the year, two seasons can offer a very different experience.

Wild Animals: Even beyond these remote islands, Humboldt’s presence can be felt and credited as “the world’s most productive sea eco system” – responsible for 20% of the world’s amazing marine catch. Every single species – reptiles, mammals, birds, invertebrates or marine – on every single island, including the surrounding waters, is influenced by and dependent on this strong current. Nutrient waters that are brought directly or indirectly provide a source of food that supports large wildlife populations. Humboldt Current: blood from the Galapagos Islands

El Niño Effect

Current current effects may be most clearly visible when nonexistent. During a weather phenomenon known as El Niño, it is attenuated by warmer winds and decreases in air pressure. During these times, which occur cyclically every two to seven years, there is a marked decrease in the activity of local wildlife breeding. There are much fewer fish, and therefore a very large source of food in the archipelago, resulting in large numbers of animals starving to death.

The complex and definitive role played by these cold ocean currents in maintaining the rich biodiversity of the islands is an interesting aspect of one of the most interesting places on the planet. Humboldt Current: blood from the Galapagos Islands
