What Can You Do With the World's Largest Family Tree of 13 Million People?

What Can You Do With the World's Largest Family Tree of 13 Million People? | Communication design | Scoop.it

Your family tree might contain a few curious revelations. It might alert you to the existence of long-lost third cousins. It might tell you your 10-times-great-grandfather once bought a chunk of Brooklyn. It might reveal that you have royal blood. But when family trees includes millions of people—maybe even tens of millions of people—then we’re beyond the realm of individual stories.

9 Easy Ways To Increase Your Conversion Rate

9 Easy Ways To Increase Your Conversion Rate | Communication design | Scoop.it

Just because your website is receiving high traffic does not mean you are already doing a great job. Take note that the traffic count does not necessarily reflect the kind of activities done by the visitors. There might be some of them who happened to pass by and immediately left.

You don’t want this kind of traffic. You want to convert traffic to sales. You want them to come to your site, explore what you have to offer and buy the products. If they can’t buy right away, at least they will go back the next time around. Letting them buy is another story, though.

Take note that visiting websites is for free. Buying products involves money. Given how difficult life is today, people are more careful in taking their wallets out to buy something.

Your goal is to make sure that they understand the value of the products and services that you offer. They must realize that even if they have to spend money, they will get something out of what they have bought. This makes it a worthy investment.

One of the ways for you to do it is to create more appealing headlines. People might have been bored the moment they entered the site. At first, it looks promising, but eventually, they'd find it less interesting. As a result, they decide to close the tab and look for other options.

This is devastating especially if this has become the more common attitude of the visitors. It is painful seeing them come and go without buying anything. You can’t let it stay this way forever.

Below is an infographic to help you in succeeding with the conversion of traffic into actual sales. Your business will only improve once you let people trust you and what you are selling. It takes time, but it is worth the wait.

Scientists make huge dataset of nearby stars available to public

Scientists make huge dataset of nearby stars available to public | Communication design | Scoop.it
Members of the public can search a newly released database of 1,600 stars to find signs of undiscovered exoplanets. The dataset, taken over two decades by the W.M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii, comes with an open-source software package and an online tutorial.

 

The search for planets beyond our solar system is about to gain some new recruits. Just recently, a team that includes MIT and is led by the Carnegie Institution for Science has released the largest collection of observations made with a technique called radial velocity, to be used for hunting exoplanets. The huge dataset, taken over two decades by the W.M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii, is now available to the public, along with an open-source software package to process the data and an online tutorial.

The World’s Most Powerful Women In Tech

The World’s Most Powerful Women In Tech | Communication design | Scoop.it

There was a time in history when only men were given the chance to control almost everything in the society. They held leadership positions. They made important family decisions. They earned the respect of everyone in the community.

Today, we have seen that women are gradually stepping up. In fact, we have seen a lot of women on the top post of their country’s governments. The same thing is true in the tech industry. This used to be a male-dominated area. Until now, men make up a huge percentage of the workforce. The good thing is that we can now see powerful women as tech industry leaders.

The fight for gender equality continues, especially now. It is just great to see that we are now moving positively forward. The society has evolved in many ways. We can now entrust women leadership positions that were deprived of them in the past.

The reason why we have such a drastic change in society is also because women have proven that they are worth it. They have shown that they can do whatever men can. Today, you can take leadership positions not because of your gender, but because of your capabilities.

If you are undeniably great, promotion is just around the corner. For these women on top positions of tech industries, they have shown that they have the right skills to rise above the top in the tech world. They have also shown exemplary leadership skills.

These women are truly inspiring. If you want to be inspired more, go ahead and take a look at the infographic below. It contains information about women who hold top positions in various companies. You can learn from their stories and be amazed at how they have come so far in their chosen career.

janlgordon's curator insight, February 22, 6:18 PM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Ashley Faulkes
 because it shows you how to boost your website traffic.

 

Unusual methods that will attract visitors to your landing page.

 

4 Ways to Increase Website Traffic

 

In order to get more visitors online you need to have the right strategies in place. I agree that by paying attention to what Google is telling you and discovering any issues with your website can be very helpful.

 

Faulkes provides unique strategies you can use to improve your traffic.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Google will let you know what kinds of keywords you are ranking for as well as your page rank. This can help you discover what is working and what is not.

 

  • Use your main keywords on your homepage. These will show up in Google's search results.

 

  • Add amazing free images that Google will pick up on. This attracts more readers and visitors, and are very easy to find on places like Unsplash and Pixabay.
