Platinum SEO for All Your Optimization Needs

There is a growing need to resort to a SEO agency which can handle the search engine optimization needs of a web business. As more companies turn to the Internet for more business opportunities, there is an obvious shortage of SEO expertise in the market. Hence, many enterprising entrepreneurs are setting up their own web ventures as a SEO agency with their knowledge of technology and creative skills.

However, not all will succeed in establishing a SEO agency with a little bit of knowledge and determination. More is required to beat the competition that is growing intense in the market.

Expectations

With the growing demands of businesses on the Internet, the expectations of a SEO industry increases proportionally. Not all businesses on the Internet are familiar with search engine optimization. There would be different levels of expectations from different businesses that go online.  seo

The right SEO company is necessary to provide the right SEO services and features to the business. Not every SEO can handle all the different types of businesses in the market. Hence, some SEO agencies tend to specialize in certain niche markets to hone their skills and creativity. There may be special requirements from certain niche markets which only skilled and creative SEO agencies can handle. These may cost a bit more than the other general SEO company service providers. It depends on the SEO industry vision and modus operandi.

Operations

Every SEO company will operate differently depending on their modus operandi and business objectives. Although most have similar offerings and services, some may stand out more than others in terms of service standard and creativity.

The SEO company that succeeds in the market must be able to secure the trust and approval of the consumer market; namely, the web business owners. Any SEO company that wishes to succeed in the market must be well established with a good reputation. Their service standards and success level in their SEO offerings speak well of them to draw in more businesses. The market approves of these entities with a stronger acknowledgement of their experience, expertise and service in search engine optimization.

Comparisons may be made among SEO agencies to identify the best among the best. Features and services would be compared to acknowledge the better SEO agency among the pack. It is difficult for any SEO agency to remain at pole position in the industry if they are not constantly innovative, creative and professional.

With search engine optimization being a big thing on the Internet, it is quite daunting to find the best SEO company. There are more and more companies that stake that claim with their myriad of SEO offerings. However, the best approach would be to check them out thoroughly and see if their claims hold water.

Credibility

The best SEO company should have a high credibility in the market. The SEO service industry must be aware of the abilities of any SEO company that claims to be the best with its services and offerings.

A SEO company cannot appear overnight; time must be taken to establish its credentials. Its reputation cannot be based on hearsay. There must be sufficient proofs on the excellent services rendered and high quality products recommended. There must be an existing list of satisfied customers who have experienced the commendable services of the SEO with a growing number on the way.

A credible SEO industry should have the necessary operating license from the relevant authority to conduct its business. Such a company is not for a short stint in the technology industry but aims to stay around for a long time.

Professional

A SEO firm that is worth engaging for any web business need must be professional in all its dealings. There is no bias against any type of business regardless of its size or nature. There is no double standard practiced by a professional SEO industry.

The staff of a good SEO would be qualified and well trained in their scope of duties and responsibilities. The SEO industry team would be cohesive in the company vision and objective to establish its presence in the market. The team must be professional in their ways of dealing with their customers. Many business owners wanting SEO services may not know exactly what is required. Hence, it is up to the SEO company team to educate and discuss on the actual needs of the business owner so that the exact requirements would be identified and met with the right SEO tools and techniques.

Collaboration

A good SEO company would want to consider some beneficial collaboration with certain companies which can enhance the standing of the SEO company. Not all SEO companies may have the necessary expertise in all SEO matters; hence, it would be a wise move for an innovative SEO company to collaborate with others to establish their own presence in the industry.

Online Sports Gambling For Fun and Money

Gambling addiction relapse is very common, especially during times of stress. There are many things that you can do to prevent yourself from a relapse from your gambling addiction. This list is far from complete, however, I believe that these are five strategies that have personally helped me from going back to the casino and pumping my heart-earned money back into a slot machine.

1. Pick up the phone and call a friend, family member, Gambling Hotline, or Gamblers Anonymous member when the urge hits. Usually when we have an urge to gamble we are really looking for some nurturing from those who love us. Sometimes just a conversation with someone who cares can help your gambling urge pass.

2. Try to find something constructive to do such as taking a walk, creating a new recipe, or even going to the mall or bookstore. Try to do something fun and stimulating since this will be replacing the gambling activity that you are trying to stop yourself from engaging in. Fill the void.. with something to keep you busy.

3. Get out a pencil and paper and write down what it felt like when you were driving home from the casino broke, despondent, angry, and depressed. Describe these feelings in detail. You will start to feel those horrible feelings by just writing these down.  918kiss

4. Visualize in your mind the drive back from the casino. After writing, use this power of visualization to really experience those feelings. Spend a minute or two doing this. After writing down your thoughts and feelings, and then visualizing these, you will truly experience the physiological feelings of the drive back from the casino or other gambling venue. You will not feel good.. trust me.

5. Reward yourself for not gambling. Buy yourself a small gift or a book. Rent a movie and enjoy your time away from gambling. You will feel uplifted and proud of yourself for not giving into your gambling addiction impulse.

I bet you’re wondering if its legal to gamble online in South Africa. If you are a poker player or regular casino player at an online casino you might be searching for answers as to your own position in all this. We will attempt to clarify this situation for you.

One Monday, Parliament passed the National Gambling Amendment Bill which seeks to regulate the remote gaming industry in South Africa. Its only waiting on President Mbeki’s signature to come into affect. But its a sure thing some political analysts say.

It basically sets out to define things that have never been present in SA gambling law until now. The Internet has expanded the South African markets reach into the unknown, and while many politicians have been debating on how to regulate it, the South African public have been exposed to various ‘poker school’ commercials while very much still being in the dark about the legality.

To put it simply, technically its currently illegal for any player to play online poker and for any casino operator to offer South African players wagers online. It been treated as a bit of a grey area for quite some time, with no-one in the industry really making moves as to what the ‘legal’ stance is. The poker rooms have been getting around this by placing ads on local TV stations in an attempt to draw attention to their properties as a ‘.Net’ ‘poker school’ – both of which are technically not illegal in SA as it is. I.e. if you go to the .net version of the site & register, you absolutely cannot wager with real cash, therefore no real cash wagering/gambling can take place, therefore there’s no breaking of current gambling law. Its unfortunate that South Africans might Google the place first and find the .net version (which incidentally isn’t searchable) and play for real on the .com version by conclusion. I bet the government has been watching these developments carefully.

The bill has been put into place recently as a bit of a catch up to global online gambling trends. I mean, the UK recently started regulating online gambling with great successes, including the protection of players, licensing and the expansion of ethical practices within the industry. The igaming industry is thriving there now.

If you are interested in reading the document, go ahead its available here. I’ve already taken the important points to take note of out below.

So whats can we take out from the bill then?

  • The government now recognizes the remote gambling industry as is attempting to regulate it.
  • The online gambling operators have to apply to get a license to operate in South Africa.
  • An online player may only play at a licensed online casino / poker room.
  • Both parties have to make sure the player is over 18 and the correct procedure is taken to prevent under age gambling (i.e. submit an affidavit).
  • The minister will publish in the government gazette, the regulations regarding how these gambling operators may or may not advertise. (My feeling is much the same way as land based casinos are allowed to do it with disclaimers and the like)

Just note though, that this is not a threat to your freedoms as a gambler. This is in fact just there to make sure it is legal to gamble in South Africa, that you as a player and the public are protected against illegal operations and money laundering. Of course the government hasn’t highlighted the ‘direct taxation of gambling wages’ as a main topic behind all this, but in time I guess, as they always do, will benefit from drawing funds from this $35 billion a year global revenue source.

Novel Onto Paper

Wasn’t 2010 supposed to be the year you got serious about writing? And did December arrive to find you still talking about writing your novel, but not getting down to doing any actual writing? I’ve been there, and most of you have, too.

I’ve decided it’s time for a change. When 2011 comes to an end, I will have a completed novel, written by me, in my grubby little hands. It may not be published, but is will be written. How’s that for confidence?

Just how am I going to accomplish this task, since I have never managed to do it นิยาย before? After all, wasn’t I the one who signed up for NaNoWriMo two years ago, only to change my mind at the last minute and switch over to their Rebel Writer department so I could write articles instead of a novel?

Yes, that was me, and I have the NaNoWriMo Rebel Badge to prove it. I did write my 50,000 words in 30 days, but not a novel, which, after all, is the purpose of the contest. It did prove to me that I could turn out that many words, and maybe that has something to do with my new resolution to really write a novel in 2011.

Here is how I plan to do it. Join me if you, too, have been a writing procrastinator for far too long.

1. Spend January learning HOW.

Of course we know how to write or we probably wouldn’t be calling ourselves writers, but do we really know how to write a novel?

The least expensive way I know to brush up on your novel writing skills, or to gain some if you don’t already have them, is to head down to your public library and pick up a few books on how to write a novel. If possible, choose ones written by authors that you know have already published their own novels. Skip the sections that repeat things you already know and find the things that will help you in your weaker areas—mine is making my characters sound real.

Another way that will cost you a little is to order a course from someone who is already a successful writer. I raved from Thanksgiving till Christmas about Rob Parnell’s writing course until my husband finally took the hint and “surprised” me with a copy of it for Christmas. He told me it didn’t cost much more than taking me out to dinner so I guess he was happy about it.

I’m already through several chapters of the course, and was a bit hesitant about the advice Mr. Parnell gives about creating characters before we plot our story. He was right, though. I did what he said and wrote at least a page of description for 6 different characters. When I was finished, I knew what they looked like, who their friends were, how many family members they had, where they went to school, what their hopes and dreams were, and whether or not they had any odd quirks that might make them stand out from other people.
