5 Benefits of Adding New Content to Your Site

May 28, 2020

It’s no secret that some people love to write, and others would rather do anything else than pen a blog. However, adding fresh content to your site is a great way to drive more traffic. Maybe you own a golf course in the metropolis that is Greenville, South Carolina, and have noticed a decline in site visitors in the past year. By uploading engaging, keyword driven content that offers value to your visitors, you can capitalize on the advantages of Greenville SEO and drive more conversions. Here are 5 benefits that can arise from keyword optimized content.


1. Over-Delivering on User Intent
When visitors arrive to your time, they’re looking for answers. Where is your golf course? What types, of course, should they expect? Do you host tournaments or other events? What are your tee times rates? This kind of information is considered content and should be easily available without digging through pages for it. The more user-friendly your website is, the better the user experience will be. Guess who will notice this? Google. Excellent user experience can have a positive effect on your ranking.

2. You Appear More Authoritative

When a site has a nice array of content for users to read through, it can make your business appear like an authority in the industry. This helps build trust and credibility, which can easily make or break any business. Whether your team creates content, or you have it outsourced by a digital marketing agency, it should maintain the same voice. That is to say that one piece shouldn’t sound like its geared towards college students if your typical brand voice is informative and sophisticated.

3. It Helps Smooth Out Brand Identity

As content is being written, your golf course’s brand identity must shine through every piece. If you’ve never really given this area of your company attention, this is a great opportunity. Who are you behind the name and logo? What are your core values? Answering questions like these can produce some high quality, honest content.

4. It Boosts Ranking

When content includes keywords relevant to your industry, it significantly impacts how Google ranks your business. The first page of search queries is reserved for those sites who exemplify excellent keyword optimization, among other factors. Take a look at the keywords you’re ranked for and see what kinds of golfing content you can create with them.

5. The Gift That Keeps on Giving

When you have different types of content on your site, like blogs, articles, product or service descriptions, and more, this information can be repurposed on your social media channels. Say you have a blog post covering all of your golf courses. You can have this made into an eye-catching infographic to post on Facebook and Instagram! Getting creative is the answer to recycling your existing content in a meaningful way.

4 Altruistic Professionals For A Career Change



Decided that it’s time for a career change? Looking for a role where you can help others make a difference? Well that’s great news! There are many altruistic professions out there where you can give something back and earn a nice salary while you’re at it.

1 . Public Interest Lawyer

Public interest lawyers work to offer legal services at a reduced rate, or for free, for those who can’t afford such services. The goal is to provide representation for those groups or individuals who are usually underrepresented.

A public interest lawyer might also fight for certain policy changes, or champion civil liberties. It’s in the interests of these lawyers to push for improved consumer rights and environmental protection.

To pursue a new career as a public interest lawyer, you’ll need to take an undergraduate law degree. It’s advisable to take a module in public law, or specialise in a related subject such as politics. On completion of your degree should also look to secure a training contract. Choose a chamber with a high performing public law team.

2. Environmental Engineer

Environmental Engineers work by using soil science, chemistry and engineering with the aim of improving environmental issues. As an environmental engineer you’d be researching strategies to reduce ozone depletion and global warming. A typical day would involve analyzing data, providing guidance for government agencies and completing investigation reports. To become a qualified environmental engineer you would need to complete a degree in an engineering based subject. If you prefer, you could also study for a science or environmental degree.

3. Psychiatrist

Psychiatrists are doctors who diagnose and treat individuals with mental health disorders. Such disorders might include depression, schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Psychiatric issues can often stem from physical illnesses, so it’s the role of the psychiatrist to recognise symptoms in both the body and the mind. Treatments may involve therapy, medication or a combination of the two. To become a psychiatrist, you must first complete a degree in medicine. After completion of your degree, you will be free to pursue a variety of psychiatrist roles. There are many places you can search for these positions online, including Practice Match for open psychiatry positions.

4 . Social Worker

Social workers work to offer support for families and individuals who are facing challenging times. It’s their job to help vulnerable people by safeguarding these individuals from harm.

Social workers are employed across a variety of settings, their roles overlap with various laws and procedures to support people and the wider community. As a social worker, you might be employed within schools, hospitals, homes or within a voluntary organization. On a daily basis social workers carry out interviews with families or individuals; refer cases to external agencies; come to decisions on behalf of vulnerable people; and conduct assessments as appropriate. You’ll need to take an undergraduate degree in social care to pursue this path.

When you’re planning a career change, you’ve got to get prepared before you take the leap. Returning to education can be challenging, but it is achievable with online degrees or evening courses.

4 Essential Home Improvement Works You Can't Postpone

Ah, home improvements! For a lot of homeowners, the difference between home improvements and home repairs is sometimes tricky to make. In practice, home improvement is all about making your home better, while repairs focus on tackling issues. However, more often than not, the two belong together. You can add an extension to your kitchen and use the extra space to fix problematic plumbing. In short, it’s hard to know where improvement stops and repairs start. As a guiding line, you can postpone home improvement work without putting your structure at risk. Home repairs, however, are best to be dealt with ASAP. Here are the top four repairs you want to complete immediately to avoid costly damage.



Old windows that let the air through

Replacing your windows and doors may not seem like a priority, but you’d be wrong to ignore the consequences of a leaky window. Indeed, an old window could let cold air through in winter. It makes your home hard to heat. But, many homeowners proactively manage the issue with the addition of thermal curtains that prevent the air from penetrating the room. However, what those curtains fail to do is stop humidity. Air humidity can lead to the formation of mold patches, which can affect the household health. Additionally, even if you’re not affected by mold, mold spores, when left unattended, can weaken the house structure.

Leaky roof

Your roof preserves the structure of your home by keeping your family, and your walls dry. Most roof structures need to be replaced or repaired every 15 to 30 years, depending on the roof material. Rural cottages can require more frequent replacements. However, it doesn’t mean your roof should only be checked every 30 years. On the contrary, you need to schedule annual roof inspections to ensure everything remains safe. The inspection will highlight potential issues, including leaks that might otherwise go unnoticed for years. If you become aware of issues, you should complete repairs immediately.

Unreliable plumbing

Nobody likes a pipe that drips. Unfortunately, with old plumbing systems, dripping is almost unavoidable. Leaky joints and pipes are a frequent occurrence that can be caused by minor scratches and damage to the surface of the pipes, corrosion from old material, poor fitting, and even ground movements after extreme weather conditions. A small leak can affect the structural integrity of your house. Therefore, if you can’t get a plumber to come and fix it, you should rely on effective DIY solutions to stop further problems. Understanding the difference between condensation on the pipes and dripping can also help address the issue effectively.

Cracks in the exterior walls

Cracks in your exterior walls are not the kind of things you want to hide with a fresh coat of paint. Cracks can indicate a variety of issues. First of all, not all are caused by structural instability. But, if left unattended, they can lead to a weakened structure as they expose the wall to moisture. Ideally, if you’re unsure, you should get a professional contractor to check your walls and advise on the best course of action.

You can’t afford to expose your house structure to air or water infiltration. Any issue that could increase moisture risks in your walls, ceilings, and floors should be managed as a priority. When your house structure is corrupted, the building is at risk of collapsing. Be sure to complete these home repairs before your progress with any further home projects.

Essential Tips for Your PC Gaming Setup

May 5, 2020

If you want to achieve a great gaming setup, there are a few things that you’ll want to get right. Many people who are new to PC gaming aren’t sure where to start and can be overwhelmed by the options, especially if they’re used to the relative simplicity that’s offered by console gaming.

So, if you’re not sure what the most important things are and where you should start, let this guide help you get it right. Read on and find out what you need to know about creating a good PC gaming setup.

Choose a Good PC with a Cooling System

First of all, you need to choose the actual PC itself. It makes most sense to choose a PC that fits your budget because everyone is going to have different needs and preferences. But make sure that it’s of a high standard and always read reviews before buying. You should also make sure that you choose a gaming PC that comes with a cooling system built in because that’s something that’s going to be needed and it’ll help avoid problems later.

Find the Right Monitor

Next, you should think about which monitor you’re going to pair with your gaming PC. When it comes to PC gaming, it’s usually seen as preferable to use a gaming monitor over a TV. And the monitor should be fast enough to handle gaming. It’ll be one of the most important tech items you use while gaming and if it’s too slow, the display will be behind the game you’re playing and there’ll be a delay which is incredibly frustrating, especially when playing games online.

Consider Using a Projector Too

In addition to your gaming monitor, you might want to consider the possibility of using a gaming projector, or any projector that’s suited to the demands of gaming. It doesn’t have to be something that you use every time you want to play a game on your PC. But it’s definitely a good option to have, especially when you want to make gaming into a more fun and communal experience with friends and family. It allows you to share in the experience more easily.




Purchase the Best Keyboard, Mouse and Controller You Can Find

There are a few other basic hardware items that’ll have a huge impact on your experience of gaming with a gaming PC. First of all, you’re going to need a keyboard and mouse, and you should also get used to gaming via these. If you’re someone who is used to gaming on a console, transitioning to keyboard and mouse can be tough, but it’s rewarding in the end when you get used to it. Nevertheless, a Microsoft controller is worth having as well because some games are simply better with a controller.

Make Use of LED Lighting

Having the right light setup is important in your gaming space. For many people, gaming with the lights dimmed is the best way to go and that’s understandable. But you can make the space even more atmospheric by using LED lights as your only light source. This guide on How to install LED strip lights will give you all the information you need on how to do this, so make the most of it. It’ll definitely enhance your gaming experience.

Invest in a Proper Gaming Chair

A good gaming chair will be essential for those long gaming sessions that stretch far into the night. The last thing you want is a lack of support when you’re trying to enjoy a game. Back pains and things of that nature are all too common for gamers and you need to be careful to avoid them. In order to do that, you need to have a supportive gaming chair that’s designed for heavy use.

Don’t Forget About the Headset

Finally, you need to make sure you have a good headset. This is important if you intend to play online with friends and want to be able to communicate as you play. That’s an important aspect of gaming for many people and a good headset will make it so much easier for you. There are lots of great options out there.

If you’re a PC gamer, these are the essential things you need to know about getting your gaming setup just right. Once you’ve ticked all of these boxes, you’ll have the things in place that you need. From there, you can go ahead and customize your setup to suit your specific needs and preferences.
