To rank on Google a great Backlink Strategy is needed

A key point for SEO success that everybody is talking about is creating more inbound links to your website. The best way to get good links is to find highly relevant websites and ask them to set up a link to your website. While this research for relevant links can be very time consuming, it is also very rewarding in the amount of traffic it can generate for your website. It involves going on a tedious hunt through related or similar websites, contacting the right people there and offering to set up reciprocal links. These free links, once established, are often the life-blood of a stable internet marketing campaign. seo ranking on google

It’s seems simple, but many of these website owners, especially the one with a PR site will on many occasions ignore your request. But if you can show the benefit to linking to one of your good content page, a good majority of them will accept your request.

These site owners will want reciprocal links back to their sites; you must be willing to place a link somewhere on your own website (usually a links page) in order to set these up. In fact, it is best to set up a reciprocal link from your own website before contacting the other person. It costs you nothing and makes it harder for the person you are asking to say “no” or to ignore your request. We do not recommend putting links on your home page or in areas where the link will distract from the focus of your site.

This is an everyday task and it requires patience and perseverance to get ultimate result. But when implemented right you will see some dramatic result in terms of traffic.

A good example is a link from a highly popular website like; free internet marketing courses to our search engine optimization page doubled the traffic to our website overnight.digital marketing agengy

The same sort of paid text link ads are also available from Text Link Brokers and Link Adage. For a free, downloadable eBook (an Adobe PDFfile) on why linking matters and how to set up your own effective linking strategy, go to this site, Linking Matters and download their free report. It’s well worth the time it takes to read and understand linking as part of a strategy for getting people to your site and to raise your visibility in the search engines.

LinkPartners.com is a free directory of websites that swap links with other websites. Useful for finding and setting up links to relevant websites.

ReciprocalMarketing.com offers a cheap way to buy reciprocal links – they charge a dollar per link and you get to set which categories of links you want and don’t want. They automate the whole process. You set your monthly budget for how many links you can afford.

If you have feedback (negative or positive) about any of the above, please let us know about it.
Note: Some of these link resources have free options, some don’t. All of them are either paid or reciprocal in some way. If you choose to go with one of these, take a look after a few weeks at who is newly linking to you for the quality of the links it gets you. And, keep checking for a few months whether it has helped you at all, either by sending in more traffic or improving your rank. Not all links are equal, so do take a good look at what you are getting for your membership.

Make it easy for people to link to your site. You can set up a page that has the code linking to your site, so they can paste it into their HTML.

Auto accident checklist: Tips on what to do following a car accident

Hopefully you will never be involved in an auto accident or need to file an insurance claim. Even the most careful and skilled drivers, however, can easily find themselves in the middle of a crash. Would you know what to do? Knowledge of what to do after the car accident can help make the insurance claims process easier and smoother so that you are back on the road faster.car accident attorney

If you are in an auto accident:

1. Try to stay calm, stop your vehicle and check for injuries. The life and health of you, your passengers and the other people involved in the accident is far more important than the vehicle itself.

2. If required, call the police and let them know of the accident, your location, how many people are involved, whether there are injuries and the types of injuries.

3. You may wish to take reasonable steps to protect yourself, and your vehicle, from further damage. Where possible and if legal, move the autos to the side of the road and turn on your hazards as soon as it is safe. If you have flares, you may wish to use them to warn oncoming traffic and to prevent additional crashes.

4. Taking lots of notes is a good practice, like:

ï the date, time and location of the accident
ï how the accident occurred sometimes a drawing is worth a thousand words and can help enhance what youíve noted
ï the type and location of damage to your car
ï the type and location of damage to the other cars or property involved
ï the names, addresses and contact information of all drivers and passengers involved in the accident
ï drivers license numbers and all the information on the licenses
ï insurance identifications including the name of the insurance company and policy number
ï the names, addresses and contact information of witnesses
ï the names and badge numbers of police officers or other first response personnel

(Being able to take notes is important so keep a pen and pad in your glove compartment, just in case.)

5. You may wish to ask the police officer when and where you can get a copy of the accident report. There’s a good chance you will need it when you submit your insurance claim to your insurer.personal injury lawyers

6. Its usually a good idea to call your insurance company right away and report the accident because the sooner they know about the crash the quicker they can start working to resolve your insurance claim. As well, they’ll be able to explain the next steps, like where to have the car towed if necessary and arrange for an adjuster to come out and appraise the damage before any repair work is done.

7. There are a couple of don’t you might want to consider like don’t discuss the financial limits of your auto insurance policy and avoid discussing the responsibility for the accident or circumstances of the accident with anyone other than the police or a representative of your insurance company.

Auto accidents take a significant toll on everyone involved. But, if you stay calm, make safety your priority and follow the above tips, you will get through the ordeal of being in an accident and submitting an insurance claim.

Adult treatment – Invisalign and beyond

Adult treatment – Invisalign and beyond

As an adult, you decide that you want to have the beautiful smile you have always dreamed of. Maybe you missed out on braces as a child; perhaps your teeth looked fine for years, but have worsened over time; perhaps you had braces, but didn’t wear your retainers? Whatever the reason, let us show you how your smile can be improved.

First step – straighten crooked teeth
This is what we do at Invisible Braces. Using Invisible Braces (Invisalign) we can treat crowding, spacing, crossbites, overbites, overjets, open bites, etc.

Some before and after examples:orthodontists

On average, straightening teeth with Invisible Braces (Invisalign) takes 12-18 months. This is then followed by night-time wear of retainers to hold the teeth in their new positions.

For detailed information about Invisalign Invisible Braces, please visit our FAQ page.

What else can be done?
For many patients, that is all that is needed, but for some there is much more that can be done to make the resulting smile even better. Orthodontists do not work alone – we collaborate with the patient and their dentist to achieve the best result possible. It depends what you want.

Here are examples showing how dentistry can improve your smile, even if you now have straight teeth. These would usually be discussed at your initial consultation in our practice.

Yellowed teeth – can be bleached

Gum disease – needs periodontics

Worn/broken teeth – need repair

Calculus/tartar build-up – needs professional cleaning

1. Bleaching
A simple, safe way to improve the colour of stained or discoloured teeth. You can use your Invisalign Aligners or your retainers to bleach your teeth at home. Bleaching usually takes 1-2 weeks, and lasts 1-5 years between applications.

We can supply, and advise about bleaching products.

2. Gum disease
This is not a single problem, and can range from simple redness and swelling (gingivitis):

to severe periodontitis with bone loss, requiring specialist treatment by a periodontist:

This type of problem can be improved by grafting and other specialist techniques.

For detailed information read these articles from the U.S. National Library of Medicine or the Australian Dental Association (open in new windows).

3. Scaling
Hard deposits called ‘calculus’ form on most people’s teeth, especially around the lower incisors and the upper molars. These range in colour from whitish, to yellow, to black. They are normal – but must be removed.

Brushing will not remove or prevent the formation of calculus (tartar), nor will special toothpastes. Good oral hygiene will reduce the rate of calculus formation.

Once calculus/tartar is present, it needs to be removed professionally by your dentist or hygienist. Usually this will be done, as needed, at your regular dental check up, along with polishing to remove stains.

If left, the light coloured calculus that forms above the gums will lead to gingivitis, and the dark calculus below the gums will cause periodontitis. See Gum diseases above.

4. Cosmetic Dentistry
This is a topic which includes all the above treatments, plus veneers, crowns (caps), bridges, implants, bonding, reshaping, etc – in fact, everything that could be done to make your teeth look better.

It is not possible to cover all this, but here are a few examples.

Repairing worn or chipped teeth

The enamel on the outside of your teeth is very strong (the hardest part of the body) but it is brittle, like glass. Over time enamel can chip or wear down, especially if you grind your teeth or have a bad bite.

After your teeth are straight, your general dentist can smooth or repair these damaged areas with tooth coloured fillings, by bonding or filing.

Reshaping
Here, a small tooth, called a ‘peg lateral’, has been built up to the correct size with a veneer:

If you look closely, you will see that the larger tooth to the left has been smoothed down to improve its shape also.

Veneering
In this example, a discoloured, misshapen tooth has been veneered to improve its colour and shape.
The yellow/brown colour indicates a dead tooth – probably from trauma.

Non-vital bleaching

Sometimes bleaching alone is enough, but this has to be carried out by your dentist

Bleach is placed in the hole in the back of the dead tooth, where the nerve used to be.

5. Replace missing teeth
Missing teeth should be replaced for health as well as looks. Back teeth are essential for good chewing, better digestion, and healthy jaws and muscles. Front teeth are obviously important for aesthetics, but also contribute to good oral health.

There are several options to replace missing teeth, and these should be discussed with your general dentist, or a prosthodontist. Here is a simplified illustration showing two ways to replace a missing back tooth:

6. And beyond?
Beyond the realms of normal dentistry, there are other options to improve your smile, ranging from simple injections of cosmetic fillers or Botox, up to Plastic or Maxillo-Facial Surgery. As a specialist orthodontist these are not procedures we carry out, but we can advise you and provide recommendations or referrals.

But don’t overdo things, blindingly white teeth are not found in nature.

Now you know all about how to make a smile better, here is your homework. What can be done for this patient?

Don’t worry – he’s not a real patient. Just a professional photographic model!
