With all the advancements search engines have made, a lot of folks in the SEO world are circling back to a fundamental question: If I'm targeting a particular keyword, where and how often should I use that in the front and back ends of my page? Watch this excellent presentation By: Rand Fishkin
With more than 100 apps installed on my iPhone 6 Plus, I consider myself an iPhone power user. Thought I'd share with you a time saving tip to make if faster to locate your apps. I've been testing out this system for a few weeks and so far I really like it. I used to have at least five or six screens on my iPhone that I had to scroll through to locate the app I wanted to use. I found it difficult to locate my apps so I decided to simplify and put all of my apps on just ONE screen!
Here is the methodology I used. I put my most important apps on the bottom bar and top screen. These are the apps that I use multiple times a day like email, Safari, ToDo's, Notes or need quick access to like Google Maps and Waze for GPS. The rest of the 100+ apps were moved into groups by type so all business related apps went into a Business group, all photography editing apps went into a Photography group, etc. Finally, I sorted these groups alphabetically to make it faster to locate the group. Now when I want to type a document, I know to open the Business group and when I want to deposit a check I know to go to the Finance group, etc. Putting the groups in alphabetical order makes it very fast to locate the correct group. I'm really enjoying being able to access everything from one screen and I personally find it quicker to locate my apps. Give it a try. I'd love to hear your comments and thoughts on this as well as hear what system you've come up with for organizing your apps.
I'm sure if you've spent any time doing social media marketing, you've had this question. I came across the most comprehensive answer to this question I've ever seen on this web page. Take a look at this article which combines data from 10 different sources. Lots of stats and infographics on the best times to post to social media.
I came across this interesting article today titled, "Whoever Said a Church Shouldn’t Be on Facebook Didn’t Know These 8 Astounding Stats" from Ministry Communicators Association. It offers up some good reasons why churches should be taking advantage of this popular social media platform as a communications tool and offers some great uses for Facebook for churches.
Some interesting stats from the article include.
• 71% of adults who are online use Facebook
• 58% of the whole adult population are on Facebook
• 66% of all men who are online use Facebook
• 77% of all online women use Facebook
Facebook used to be the domain of the young, but that is no longer the case. Today more than half of all adults who are online and over 65 years of age use Facebook. Here are more age related statistics:
• 87% of 18-29 year olds are on Facebook
• 73% of 30-49 year olds are on Facebook
• 63% of all 50-64 year olds who are online use Facebook
• 56% of all 65+ year olds who are online use Facebook
It is safe to say that churches need to have a Facebook presence, too.
