Yeah, in two weeks Ascot horseraces will be here and I’ll try not to miss it. Yesterday when I was on the train I was reading the newspaper and this article got my attention. Basically you can go to Debenhams and there they will have a grass exactly like the one in Ascot for you to check if you need to change your high heels for you not to get stuck in the grass. Isn’t clever? To be honest it’s the best publicity they can get before this amazing event happening on June this year.
It got the attention of the media, public and also advertising agencies that thought why they didn’t come up with the idea before! This is genius!
Well, apart from 330social.com I also own other website called mariaefmilliner.com. Because I love hats! I’m the responsible for the content and since I’m translating it to english and spanish, I’m worried about the SEO. I have read that if you duplicate your content you can get penalised by Google. And because many people are saying different things I decided to go for multiple answers and posted a question on LinkedIn regarding this. Let’s see how it goes, I’ll post the answers and the conclusion (if there is one)
I always love to listen to TED talks, they always have something interesting to talk about and I must say I love how people try to increase creativity and ”give birth” to new things.
Tomorrow I was listening to Dan Berkenstock who tried (and finally did) to create a new device to take satellite pictures with high quality and low cost. He built this machine because the images that satellites gave to us before were too old and also a huge part of the world was not able to get pictured.As you can see, only the part in yellow and red are clearly filmed.
At the beginning it seemed quite a challenge but they did it! Let’s listen to him and how he accomplished this! Just only one note. The device is amazing but I’m truly concern about the purpose of it. He says it for his work and for helping the world, but nowadays with all the “spies” around I don’t know if it’s more a spying machine rather than something that is going to benefit us.
Let’s see, time will tell…
For the ones that love creativity, I post three videos of Ted Talks, highly recommended!
Well these days I’m trying to read more and more about SEO as it seems it’s key thing for your website. And of course, if you want a good position on your google ranking you might need to tag the pictures on your blog and website.
I didn’t know that as I usually just write the name of picture down to make it simpler for the reader, but the importance of creating the right name and content for the image seems unmissable for SEO
First of all, there are two parts on this: Alt and Title. The Tittle is the name you give to the picture. On this case I can name this image “mimo” and this name is for you reader to better understand what is going on with the photo.
But when you choose a name for ALT (on this case I can name it exactly the same “mimo”). An this ALT thing is for Google to read the picture too, not only the text, and help you with your Google ranking.
Your Title and Alt text should look like this:
A really good tip to use for your ALT text is not always to use the same name for the images (in case you have 5 different mimo’s images for example) and mix up different names. This will help you to boost your page on Google.
How to do it? It’s so simple. If you are using wordpress, as I do you just need to upload a picture and then on the right side you will see image and alt text. Then you can choose what you want to write on the space. Try it out!
For the ones that already know N. Patrick Harris… this video is hilarious!!!!
