5 Ways to Write Quality Content That is SEO Friendly

5 Ways to Write Quality Content That is SEO Friendly | smfg | Scoop.it

Although Google’s search engine algorithms are shrouded in mystery, they are widely accepted as a barometer for gauging the importance of your content on the internet. As a result, a cottage industry has developed that is focussed on gaming the rankings to receive favourable placement. However more often than not, “black-hat” SEO tactics do not work. What works is creating quality content that is useful to your reader. Below are five methods for writing content that will do well in search engine rankings.

John Flagler's curator insight, November 26, 2013 3:48 PM

Simple article to digest about very basic SEO practices. We have recently made minimal changes to a clients homepage content (and a few interior pages) and found that the search engines "ate it up". In other words they loved it and the ranking results were amazing. I am sure the results are not typical as this was a very targeted campaign within a very focused geo location. But nevertheless the one rule we have found works is to develop your site and content with a passion for what you do (sell) and the search engine rankings will reflect that.

Everything You Should Know About Bitcoin Mania

Everything You Should Know About Bitcoin Mania | smfg | Scoop.it

The People's Bank of China stated that Bitcoin is no real currency and this statement dropped the Bitcoin rate by 14%. Is Bitcoin mania over now?

Are you following Bitcoin?

Paulo Gervasio's curator insight, December 9, 2013 4:18 AM

This is a link to the bitcoin site: 

http://bitcoin.org/en/faq#is-bitcoin-legal

 

It is a currency supported by an organiztion called bitcoin.org which operates with exchanges globally in effect converting hard currency and back through these exchange based on  published rates.

 

Its a good idea but it is not regulated in anyway. The integrity of the entire system is reliant on the integrity of the Bitcoin database between the exchanges there is probably a requirement to reconcile or pay each other off periodically.

 

It has not happened but the worse case scenario is for the exchanges to shutdown one by one leaving the global users stranded with bitcoins but no way to exchange them with hard currency.

 

WHy Bitcoins and why now?

 

You need to study the history of currency and trade to understand this properly.  For years the US Dollar have been the trading currency of choice because it use to be based on Gold aka  Gold Standard http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_standard

 

It was so strong during the time that other currencies notably the HKD would peg the exchage rate of their currency to the USD and consequently it made their currency very stable.

 

 This has ended in 1971 when Richard Nixon disassociated the USD from Gold. In effect the value of the USD has become arbitrary supposedly based on valuations within a forex market - see :

http://money.howstuffworks.com/exchange-rate.htm

 

Despite this,  a strong US economy and being the largest market / buyer in the world had made  the USD stable for decades after 1971 and has led to a practice of countries buying USD  to stabilize their exchange rate and ensuring they can pay for their imports in a practice called creating and maintaining a Forex reserve.  China in particular has a string forex reserve based on the USD.

 

However this stability of the USD (also the Euro and the Yen - the other trading currencies) ended in 2009 with the past depression and in consequence it wreaked havoc in trading - this is why bitcoin is emergent, an internet currency disassociated with the economic performance of the country that issues it.

 

China which has a huge pile of USD as forex exchange probably realizes that bitcoins serve to drive the value of the USD down. The main reason that the value of the USD has maintained its value is because of the continuing demand to use it in Forex reserve particualrly by China. A shift to bitcoin trading will drive the USD value down creating problems not only for the USA and China but to a significant number of countries with huge reserves based on the USD.

 

Not to mention that Bitcoin is really in effect just a group of programmers who managed to convince a number of businessmen globally to act as exchanges.
