Search Engine Optimization continues to be a growing industry as more businesses realize that a high ranking in a Google search can be worth more than traditional advertising. Specialty SEO firms help customers achieve those high rankings, which result in increased website traffic and, eventually, increased revenue. But how an SEO firm gets you on Google’s first page has lasting consequences, warns Kathryn Sias, vice president of oAssist (www.oassist.com ). “Think old Western movies – the good guy always wears a white hat, and the bad guys wear black hats. If an SEO company is uses bad guy tactics to get you high Google rankings, Google will eventually punish you,” she says. “And it may penalize you for a long time.” Tactics to beware of include: • Using content ripped off from another high-ranking site. • Paying foreign workers to write poor content that utilizes key phrases, which Google’s spiders (part of the search engine) seek. In many cases, the content is mostly illegible, except for the key search words. Google hates this. “You want a bona fide high ranking, which will last your site longer than just a few weeks,” Sias says. “And, of course, legit copy means you will not be flagged as a cheater.”
On Friday, (2/22/13), an Israeli documentary opens nationwide. “The Gatekeepers” already has won the National Society of Film Critics’ award for Best Documentary. At the Academy Awards on Sunday, (2/24/13), filmmaker Dror Moreh will learn whether he’ll pocket the grand prize – an Oscar for Best Documentary. Why should American audiences care about a documentary featuring six former heads of Israel’s secret security service? “All of them advocate an end to occupation of Palestine and an Israel coexisting with an independent Palestine as the best solution for peace,” says Michael J. Cooper, author of “Foxes in the Vineyard,” (www.michaeljcooper.net), an Indie Publishing grand prize-winning novel that explores Israel’s birth through historical fiction. Cooper, who spent years living in Israel, saw “The Gatekeepers” during an early pre-release screening. “Based on their experience immersed in security issues, all six former directors of the Israeli security service recommend a two-state solution. As Americans, and whether or not we care about Israel or Palestine, we have a stake in seeing that happen.” For one thing, American aid comprised 21 percent of Israel’s defense budget for 2012. This year and for each year through 2018, the United States will spend $3.15 billion on military aid to Israel—almost $9 million a day.
When Dr. John Salerno – a protégé of “Atkins Diet” creator Dr. Robert Atkins – testified before the U.S.D.A. about plans for its most recent Food Pyramid revision, he spoke his mind: The food industry is misinformed and has supported recommendations that do not support the population’s health. “More than anything – more than career ambition or anything else – I honestly just want to help those who are seeking it,” says Salerno, author of “The Silver Cloud Diet,” (www.thesilverclouddiet.com ). “For too long, various food industry lobbyists have been able to influence what the government promotes as ‘healthy.’ The truth is, hidden sugar, preservatives and highly processed white starch are what are really causing our health epidemic in the United States. Obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease are killing this country, and it’s not because people are eating too much organic natural fats.” Dr. Salerno says people can start living healthier right away simply by paying attention to three things: • Natural fats (wild-caught fish, grass-fed beef) are healthy and essential • Pay attention to preservatives and additives; hormone-infused meat can wreak havoc on a body • Watch out for bad carbs (refined white starch) and sugars (high-fructose corn syrup) “There are plenty of tasty, satisfying recipes involving organic, local foods; no-carb deserts like ice cream and custard; and a better relationship with unrefined, unprocessed carbs,” Salerno says.
