|Webmasters / Is Publishing Contents Daily A Google Ranking Factor? by chikachuks1(m): 6:44am On Sep 13|
Is Publishing Contents Daily a Google Ranking Factor?
As SEO experts, we preach and advise website owners to be consistent with publishing contents on a daily basis. But then, is publishing contents daily a Google ranking factor for websites? Does publishing contents daily increases ranking on search engine? This is the question this content seeks to answer.
Recently, Google conducted an SEO office hangout in which people had the privilege of asking several questions while feedback and answers were given to the questions. To that effect, an unidentified participant asked if adding content on a regular basis helped in increasing a website ranking on search engines.
This is actually an important question because of the growing nature of the blogging industry and how SEO is becoming complex by the day. Google search engine has tons of ranking factors that we may not be able to find out which of them is more important than others. Therefore we advice a lot of things to be put into considerations in order to rank high on search engines.
There are lots things and factors important to ranking on search engine. But then, as we have been made to believe, are these ranking factors actually correct? We may teach and preach something different while search engines do it their own way.
This content will not focus on answering all these questions. Our focus is on the myth of publishing contents daily.
In the SEO office hangout conducted by Google, the exact question that was asked is, “Does posting one content daily increase ranking?”
In response to the question the answer that was given is “No. although it was not ascertained who in particular gave out the answer, but it actually came from a Google team member.
Posting regularly on your website does not in any way help in ranking your website better than those who do not post daily. The only important thing in this practice is that it helps you create more pages for your websites. However, the more pages you have in the Google index, the more your content may show up in search results.
Although, getting your pages indexed is not an assurance that the page will be crawled. This is because Google does not crawl all web pages. Beyond the content quality, Google also pays attention to the overall quality of the website.
Google’s John Mueller said: “The other big reason why we don’t crawl a lot from websites is because we’re not convinced about the quality overall”.
Although, this does not mean that those who publish on a daily basis are in the wrong practice. The frequency with which you make posts on your website should be dependent on the chosen niche. If you have a news website, then you must ensure to make posts, (if possible) on hourly bases so as to remain relevant. But still remember that this will only help you have more pages index on Google. As much as it is not a Google ranking factor, it increases your chances of ranking.
There are several websites that makes posts daily and yet hardly get up to 1000 visitors. On the other hand, there are other websites that do not publish up to 10 contents monthly, yet rake in thousands of visitors daily. This makes it clear that posting daily is not a ranking factor.
If you post on a daily basis, go ahead. Running a blog is not for the lazy. Therefore, do not slow down your speed. As earlier stated, although publishing contents daily is not a Google ranking factor, it makes your website have several pages index on search engines. You may not know which of those pages will scale through and rank well.
|Webmasters / Content Creation: 7 Qualities Of A Good Content by chikachuks1(m): 11:36pm On Jul 13|
Content creation has grown to become a highly demanded service in the internet space. With more than 300 million websites on the internet, seeking to be updated with contents as frequent as possible. Many of the owners of these websites do not write contents for themselves. Also some of the big websites across various niches leverage to services of content creators to build contents for their websites. As such in my post titled, “14 most profitable and high income skills”, content creation made the list. This is because the service is highly demanded. Seeing that the service is highly demanded, the pay per content is a good one.
What is Content Creation?
As the name implies, content creation can simply be defined as the act or process of creating contents. This is the simplest layman’s definition. But for more emphasis, content creation can be defined as an in-depth and systematic approach undertaken to build or write contents that are useful, relevant and answers questions from various searchers.
Every post on blogs and social media are known as contents. With this, there are various types of contents which includes text, Audio, Video, Image etc. As such, contents cannot just be limited to writing and publishing blog posts on websites. The videos uploaded on Youtube and other streaming platforms are also contents. The music from your favorite artists are also contents.
The field of contents creation is vast and as such can accommodate everyone. For you to be accommodated in this field, here are few things you should do
Find a niche: Having listed few aspects of content creation, it becomes important to know that you may not succeed in it if you want to be everywhere. As such, find an aspect of this industry and pitch your tent there. If you want to be a write, pay attention to it. If you want to be a graphic designer, focus on it
Develop yourself: Having discovered the niche that suits you in the content creation field, the next thing to do is to develop yourself to be able to use the various tools that will help you. For example, if you choose graphic design, develop yourself to use corel draw, Adobe photoshop, Canva and other tools. If you want to be a writer, develop yourself to use tools like grammarly and the likes. These tools will help you to be more professional in your chosen field.
Network: Having developed the relevant skill, the next thing is to network properly for clients to know you. Nobody ever get to the top in isolation. The referral of other colleagues can go along way in helping you. Also, a colleague may be so tied with work that he may choose to push some of his works to you. This can only be achieved when you network very well.
Promote yourself: While networking, ensure you promote yourself very well. We are in the era of social media and more than 70% of the world’s population uses social media, with more than 80% of the 70% using more than one of the social media platforms. As such, you can promote yourself using your social media profiles. No matter how few you friends and followers may be, keep pushing yourself on your social media account. Let people frequently see what you do. They may not need your services immediately but may refer you to someone who does. Also, in the long run, your services may be needed.
Leverage on freelancing platforms: When you have developed a skill in any of the content creation fields, search for jobs using the various freelancing platforms. There are lots of them on the internet. All you need to do is to create an account and promote yourself there. Some of the patforms that will help you includes; fiverr, upwork, writersgig, freelancer etc. Leverage these tools and others to help you get jobs.
Qualities of a Good Content
So then, what are the qualities of a good content? Do we even have bad or poor contents? In this section, I will list the qualities of a good contents. But then bear in mind that there are also bad and poorly written contents. This amount to high bounce rate. When your contents do not have quality, people will zoom off immediately after landing on your page. Many a times, your contents may not meet the demand of inquirers. When this happens you will surely not get patronage from visitors. So then what are the qualities of a good content?
#1 Must answer questions
The first quality of a good content is in its ability to answer questions. Every query initiated on search engine is intended to find an answer to some questions. As such, been able to answer such questions should be your key target. As you advance to grow in your content creation skill, this should be your first port of call. To be able to answer questions through your contents, you must understand how to perform keyword research. Keyword research helps you know what people are searching for. When you know what people are searching for, you will be able to narrow down your contents, instead of just writing on a broad topic that people may not be interested in.
Nobody will want to see same contents in more than one website. As such, ensure you are always original. The originality of your content will make readers trust your website more than others. They will be sure to see original contents always. This is one of the secret we use at Infoducation. But where you copy a line or paragraph from another source, ensure you provide appropriate references that will help direct readers more. This will in turn make you avoid plagiarism.
#3 Easily understood
A quality content should be easily understood. When writing contents, bear in mind that there are several categories of people you are writing for. As such your contents should be presented in a manner that will suit all of them. The level of education of your readers are not the same. So ensure you do not use words that will need them to consult the dictionary before understanding in. In general, the overall outlay of your content should be well structured for every reader.
#4 Must have more than one content type
I have earlier said that we have content types like text, voice, video etc. As such, where necessary, your content should be the combination of more than one content type if it must be original. Where you want to focus on text, apply relevant images too so as to throw more clarity to your text. The use of infographics can also go along way in enhancing the quality of your content.
Let your content be consistent with the known truth. Some of those who are reading your content may not be complete novice in the subject matter you are presenting. They already know a little of what you are writing about but just want to have a wider and clearer knowledge. As such, ensure that you retain consistency in your content. With this, they will be sure that you know what you are writing about.
If your content is very engaging, you will win the hearts of so many people. Have you seen some contents with hundreds of social media shares? This is because the contents were engaging enough that the readers thought it wise to share them with people on social media. When this happen, the bounce rate of your website will reduce. Also, when people stay long on your content, search engines will be convinced that such a content has quality and as such, tend to rank it more.
If you want to write on a subject matter or keyword, give out every information you have about the topic. Do not hide any information from your readers. This will make them want to devour your contents line by line instead of jumping from one website to another. Although not all contents should be long, but ensure that no matter how short it may be, let it be as informative as possible. At infoducation, the shortest content we write is about 1500 words. Although this does not mean that the content length is a weighty matter but we try as much as possible to be detailed and informative enough.
Having stated the features and characteristics of a quality content, the next thing is to tell you the steps and guiding principles in doing it. As such, we have written a step by step guide on how to write a quality content. You can refer to it to learn more.
|Webmasters / 11 Free Keyword Research Tools For Beginners In 2022 by chikachuks1(m): 9:34pm On Jul 07|
As a beginner, I know your budget is not fat and large enough to subscribe for premium keyword research tools that will help your contents go well. This is the reason why this post on the free keyword research tools is coming your way. In the blogging world, the competition for ranking is increasing daily. Top bloggers spend thousands of dollars in keyword research yearly. The keyword research budget for some of these top bloggers are more than the yearly revenue of some of startup blogs. For example, some blogs do not even make up to $100 in three months, while some of the key players in the industry spends more than $500 monthly just for keyword research.
Here are the free keyword research tools for beginners. Although, they are not totally free, they have premium versions, but you can leverage the free version for a start.
#1 Google Suggest
Google suggest makes the top of the list of free keyword research tools for beginners. As popularly known, Google is the most widely used search engine on the internet. It is currently the most visited site on the Internet above Facebook and Youtube. With this, Google build a tool known as Google suggest that is integrated into the search engine. When a searcher conducts a search on Google, he is shown links to websites with helpful and useful information regarding what he searched for. While Google does this, it also displays a list of suggestions for the searcher to choose from. These suggestions are lists of what other people are searching and they are closely related to what you are searching for.
With this in mind as a content creator, this tool can be of immense value and significance to you because it is coming directly from Google. This is how it works. Since Google is the most use search engine, it has a repository for all searches conducted via the platform. With this repository, Google is able to know what people are searching at all times. Also, it is able to know searches that are related to what you are searching for. As such, your search phrase may not be proper for the information you are looking for. You can then rephrase your search query based on the suggestions Google made.
This suggestions are very helpful to content creators because the serve as free keywords to build contents for. Google tells you what people are searching for, if you want to rank on Google, build contents that will suit those search queries. This is just the simple logic. Let us show an example with the keyword, “high income skills”.
Before now, you are aware that Google is the most used search engine on the internet with over 80% share in the search engine market. As such, about 5 billion searches are conducted on it daily. With this record, Google understands what people are searching for. To that end, these suggestions that are displayed as output when you search for a keyword is exactly what other people are searching for. This is Google’s way of telling you that other people are searching for so and so, why don’t you create content around one of those topics. This Google feature makes the top of our list because of its general acceptability and importance. Also, this tool is totally free. Here is an article that teaches you how to use this tool in detail
AnswerThePublic is a free keyword research tool owned by Ubersuggest which is powered by NPdigital. It is an autocomplete tool that works with search engines like Google, Bing etc and then coin out useful phrases that could be attached to your intended keyword. It is a keyword research tool that functions like the Google suggest to suggest keywords for your searches. The algorithm for this tool works with Google to know what people are searching for.
Since this tool is not a search engine, it cannot tell what people actually wants. Thus, it is fed by the Google search engine. Since every content is written for people, this tool tells you exactly what people are searching for. Using the same keyword, “high income skill” on this tool, you will have lots of keyword ideas to choose from. These results are divided into 5 parts. Although, there are times the tools segments the result into more than 5 sections.
How to Use this Tool
Once you click “Get Questions”, the page starts to render with the keywords found. The page is made up of two parts – the keyword wheel and the alphabetical keyword data. If you have the addon installed, you will see keyword metrics in both the sections. For the keyword wheel, you need to move your mouse over a keyword, and you will see a popup appear with the search volume and CPC, as shown in the image
The alphabetical results are shown in individual panels. The keyword volume and CPC are appended to the right of every keyword.
If you click on any of the keyword ideas displayed as output, it takes you to Google search engine where you will see contents on the said keyword.
NOTE: These results are not universal for all search term. The way this tool presents the results for this example above may not be the way it will for another example.
Ubersuggest is one of the most powerful Keyword research tools for bloggers and content creators. It is owned by NPdigital with the famous and popular SEO guru – Neil Patel as the head. Over the years, Neil Patel has grown to be one of the best SEO guys in the space. As such, his wealth of experience and those of his other team members put together were used to build this powerful tool for your keyword research purpose. Although this is a premium tool with matchless features, yet the free version permits 3 searches per day. If you are a new blogger, (depending on your niche) you may not write up to three contents daily.
In using this tool, you can narrow down your research to specific countries where you want to target. Actually, contents on blogs are not meant for everybody on the internet. Some contents are meant for students in Ghana while some are for Couples in Canada and so on. As such this tool is very effective in location based keyword research. Also, you can search for keywords in various languages. Your contents must not always be targeted to the English audience. This tool also helps you in a variety of languages. Ubersuggest does not only provide information about the searched keyword, it also brings ideas of related keywords you could rather choose.
#4 Google Keyword Planner
The Google Keyword Planner is the first of the best free keyword research tools for beginners. I used this tools a couple of times and it was really amazing. As such, for your startup, I recommend this tool to you. In using this tool, you will get ideas of some related keywords you can also choose. You get an estimated search volume for the keyword, discover new keywords, get keyword forecast and lots more.
Here is how to use the Google Keyword Planner tool. Learn to play around with this tool and get familiar with it. One of the reason why I prefer this tool above others is because it was developed by Google. Google has the world largest and most used search engine. As a matter of fact, Google search engine controls more than 80% of all searches done on the internet. As such, the company is in the best place to tell us what keyword is better than the other. This is the advantage it has over other tools.
The premium version of the Ahrefs may not be affordable to startups. But the free version will also guide you in your keyword research. The limitation of this tool is that you check for results country by country. This means that if you want to check a keyword performance for 10 countries, you will have to run the search 10 times. This may actually be time consuming, but it is really worth it for newbies.
Also, the results for the keywords are separated by search engine. This means that if you search for the performance of a keyword in Google, you will need to do same thing for Bing. The results will not be general for every search engine. In this way, keyword research may prove to be difficult, but when you begin to achieve results, you will enjoy your effort. One of the best performing content on the blog is titled “Dogpile search engine”. It was through the free ahrefs tool I discovered the keyword and built content around it. Blogging has never been easy at any stage, as such, you must ensure that you put in your best in keyword research.

This tool also stores the history of all searches you have conducted on it. As such, you can always refer to your previous searches for anything.
Semrush is also another free keyword research tools that should be mentioned here. Do not forget that most of these free tools have their premium versions. As such, they are not completely free. Semrush is one of those amazing tools. In order to use this free tool, Semrush works with Yoast SEO plugin on your site to deliver the keyword research tool. If you use the yoast SEO plugin, then you can as well make use of Semrush because of the seamless integration between the two.

|Art, Graphics & Video / Evertything You Need To Know About Bing Video by chikachuks1(m): 1:21pm On Jul 06|
In the level of technology we have reached, most people are only used to YouTube for their video contents. This is the only platform they know to upload and watch videos. They have become so accustomed to YouTube that they do not even know that there are other platforms that perform same services or rather similar services with YouTube. As such, in this content I will give you a detailed insight to Bing video and tell you almost all you need to know about it. Perhaps, after reading this content you may choose Bing video as your favorite streaming platform.
Bing Video is a video streaming and sharing platform owned by Microsoft Corporation. The platform was developed in 2004 as MSN Video/Live Search Video and later renamed and rebranded to Bing Video Search in 2009. The service works as a search engine that enables the users to browse and view videos across various websites on the web. Since inception, it has remained consistent and dedicated to video searching, streaming and sharing. The Bing Video is an integration of the Bing search engine.
Bing search engine was initially reported to be the third largest search Engine in the United State in October, 2018 with about 4.58% search volume in the search Engine market. This volume seams low because Google dominated with about 77% search volume. But with the release of Windows 10, the Bing search Engine has grown more in popularity because it serves as the default search engine for Microsoft Edge, which is also the default browser for Windows 10. As such, Bing search engine has experienced a higher usage with this integration.
With this, Bing Video search has become the second largest search engine for video contents just behind YouTube. One of the success of Bing search is because it is largely powered by Yahoo search. Recently, Bing and Yahoo signed an integration and partnership agreement. As such, they share resources together.
Features of Bing Video
Bing video has its awesome features that makes it stand out from other video search engines. Before now, you may be aware of other video search engines like YouTube, Dailymotion and Vimeo. All these platforms has their distinct features that differentiates them from the other. As such, Bing also has its features which will make you prefer it over other video search engines. Here are some of the features of Bing video that makes it stand out.
1. Find and watch videos: On a general note, every video search engine enables you to Search for videos by keywords or categories, browse for popular, recently uploaded, and related videos. Bing video is not lacking in this feature as its algorithm is topnotch in delivering this service.
2. Share videos: On this platform, every video has its own separate web address. With this address, you can share the video via various platforms like Blog, Whatsapp, Email, Facebook or even instant message.
3. Although not all types of videos are accepted on Bing, yet some of the categories of contents permissible include, but not limited to music videos, animated shorts, viral videos, original content, sports video, TV shows, news shorts etc.
4. Smart Preview: It has a smart preview feature that enable users to preview a video by hovering your mouse over its thumbnail. Once you hover your mouse over the thumbnail of the video, you will be able to watch a short preview of the original video. Preview of the video is just a brief summary of the entire video which may be one minute or a little above that.
5. Filter: It also has a feature that filter results by video duration. This will help you know the duration of a particular video content. With this feature, you will be able to set your search requirements. This is to say that if you want to watch videos of 5 minutes, you can specify it. If you do so, in your result, you will not have a video that is more than 5 minutes in duration.
6. Sorting: The algorithm of the Bing Video sort results by either relevance, language or date. By relevance, it identifies which video contents match your target keywords and the outputs them as result. Also, it outputs results by the date the videos were posted. Although, this is not always applicable in all cases.
7. View Selection: You can easily switch between views. You can switch between the grid view and list view
8. Integrated to Bing search: Bing video is not a standalone platform like the YouTube. It is integrated into the Bing search engine and works together with other Bing services like Bing News, Map, Images etc.
9. Videos are not hosted on Bing Videos: Unlike YouTube where users can host videos directly, Bing videos does not host any video. Rather they access videos that are posted on websites and display them on their search results. As such, Bing only caches the video in its cache memory, but ordinarily, the video is not stored on its database. This works with a similar algorithm to that of search engines. Search engines on their own do not have contents, rather they are able to index contents from websites and display as output. This is the same way Bing video works.
10. Parental Control Filter: The algorithm for Bing video provides for monitoring activities performed on the platform. This feature is most important for parents who would want to monitor the activities carried out by their children on the internet. But then, since these videos are not uploaded on Bing video but rather on other websites, this algorithm does not report those sites where the videos are uploaded. Rather, they report Bing, since it is the platform through which they are viewed.
11. Result list is vast: Bing Video search can find videos on any topic imaginable. Since this platform works with several other platforms, there may be videos that you will not find on YouTube but you will find on Bing video. For example, YouTube does not support pornography but Bing Video does. As such, any topic you can ever imagine, Bing has a video for you.
12. It’s algorithm is topnotch: It uses a powerful algorithm to show you the best results for your query, including links to YouTube and other video sites
13. It has a “People Also Ask” section that gives you related queries from people. In keyword research, this tool is a very powerful tool to know what topic to create contents for. When you clearly know what people are searching for, your keyword research difficulty will reduce.
14. SafeSearch: It also has a safesearch feature that helps you filter out result that are explicit.
15. Bing trend: It shows videos that are most popular within 24hours time frame. What this means is that it tracks the most popular and watched videos daily.
Bing Video Search vs YouTube Search
For the video creation and sharing platform, the competition there is almost as that in the search engine market. YouTube is the largest search engine for videos just as Google is for search queries. But then, the market for the Bing video is interestingly increasing as the company has over time, adopted amazing marketing and advertisement strategies. Here are some of the differences between Bing Video and YouTube.
For Bing video, you do not necessarily upload videos on the platform. Rather, it works like a search engine which gets results by crawling several websites. This is how Bing video works. When you are looking for a video on Bing, it shows you results from YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Vevo, Hulu and other video sharing platforms and websites. But for YouTube, you can upload videos directly to YouTube. When a search is made for a video on YouTube, only videos uploaded on YouTube will be indexed. This makes YouTube take full responsibility and ownership of every video uploaded on the platform.
In recent development, YouTube has adapted the video preview feature when you hover over a video. This feature has always been on Bing Video Search. Another major difference here is that for the Bing video preview, it has a sound integration with which you will know the quality of the video. But YouTube only has the preview feature without any sound integration.
On Bing Video Search, you can save videos by clicking on the “Save” button. The said video saves in the “My Saves” section, from which you can watch later. This is similar to the YouTube’s “Watch Later” playlist for desktop or the download for mobile. When you click on the download button on your mobile device, the video saves in the download folder of YouTube and not on the device itself.
How to use Microsoft’s Bing Video Search
As we have established that Bing video search is an awesome platform to surf video contents, let us proceed to know how we can use this great tool. In terms of results for searches, Bing seems to be smarter than other video search engines. It generates relevant and required videos from all trending sources. It also offers browsing of T.V shows, sports videos, news, and music videos, etc. Since Bing video is integrated into the Bing search engine, to search any video on Bing, click on the video tab.
The first thing is to drag your mouse on videos to watch. This will help you watch part of the video as preview without having to visit the source. This is a unique feature in this platform, although in recent time, YouTube has copied it. With this feature, you can preview the video and audio quality and save time and data while surfing the video. With the feature, you can preview videos without visiting the actual source.
Click on the Video you want to watch:
The next step is to expand the video. By expand, we mean click on the exact video to be able to watch it in full. When you expand the video, you will also be able to see a list of related videos on the right-hand side of your search.
There are no Ads before the video:
One of the drawbacks to YouTube is the fact that ads are displayed before some videos start playing. This is so annoying most times as it consumes your time. It’s search service is more user-friendly by the way it cuts off the ads from search. But then, you can still find a banner ad on video, but that never stops us from watching the video.
Limitations of Bing Video
It is clear that whatever has advantage has disadvantages as well. With this in mind, it becomes important that having stated where Bing is good, let us state where they do not get it right.
YouTube is more popular that Bing video:
There are videos on YouTube that has millions of views. This is because millions of people use YouTube daily. But this is totally different in the case of Bing. It does not have much popularity and as such, your views may not be as massive as that of YouTube.
You cannot upload your video on Bing
Bing is not like YouTube where you can create your own channel and upload videos anytime you want. Bing gets results from other videos streaming platforms like YouTube, hulu, Daily motion, Vimeo, Vevo and so on. As such, when videos are uploaded on these platforms, Bing gets results through them. On its own, Bing does not support a direct video upload.
Let me conclude this content by recommending that you try out this amazing platform. You may be very familiar with other video surfing platforms but not Bing video. As such, a trial will convince you of its matchless features.
|Phones / How To Set Your Home Address On Iphone by chikachuks1(m): 10:00pm On May 26|
In recent time, the use of Iphones has increased drastically and as such, almost everyone want to use it. As such, it becomes important that we explain some basic things you need to know in order not to be a total stranger to the device. Here, I want to show you How to Set Your Home Address on Iphone.
Technology has increased to the point that you need to set you locations in your mobile devices. This is not because the applications wants to track your movement. For example, I left my office one day and was heading home, on my way back, I got a message from Google map, asking me my experience at work that day. This means that the Google map has got to understand where I go to almost everyday and it would not be wrong to conclude that that is my workplace.
You need to set you home address because Apple Maps doesn’t automatically detect your it, it can only detect your current location. If you from one point to the other, it will keep telling you how long it will take to drive to your previous home address. This will continue to happen until you set your new address. This is why I want to show you How to Set Your Home Address on Iphone.
Google Maps has its own option for your new home address which you can change in the app. Apple Maps is not like that. It does not have such feature. Rather, it makes use of the Home address set for your Contacts card.
To set your home address on your Iphone, follow the steps below;
Step 1: Open your iPhone’s Contacts application. You will see your contacts card. On the contact card, you’ll see your name with the label “My Card” appear at the top of your list of contacts. Click on the “my card”.
Step 2: Having clicked on “my card” you’ll see your “Home” address displayed, if you’ve previously set one. This is the Home address Apple Maps uses. Or if you bought the iPhone from someone, the app will use the address set by the previous user. As such, you’ll need to edit it.
Step 3: Click on the “Edit” link at the top right corner of the screen to edit your settings. In the settings that will be displayed, go down and till you find the “Home” address section. If you have not set a Home address before, then click on the “Add Address” link to add a Home address. But if you have done that before, that is if there is any registered home address on your device, then you need to edit it.
Step 4: Click on the Home address fields and type in your new Home address. Having done that, Click “Done”. This process may actually take a little time to propagate as it is not done immediately. It may take a few moments for the Apple Maps app to notice your new Home address and start using it in the widget and the Apple Maps app itself.
After a while of waiting and nothing happens, you can close the app and reopen. Hopefully it would have propagated. But then, if it still does not propagate, then you need to restart the application. This time, hopefully it would have been done.
This solution is applicable for all models of iphone. As such, having understood the process, you can go ahead to try it yourself and enjoy the usage of your valued device.

Every android device has various applications which are developed by people like you and I. Developing an android application is a very big project depending on the nature and functionality of the application.
The world is fast evolving. Soon, most of the things done by human beings will be taken over by robot. Already the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) technology has displaced thousands of people in the banking industry. Robots serve as attendants in several hotels in developed countries. This is possible because of programmers who take time out to build software that manipulates these Robots. Programming skill is a highly demanded and sought after skill round the world today. Programmers do not stay unemployed at all.

Many companies do not want to continue using custom built software, instead they want to build their own so that they could manipulate it as much as they want. This is why the search for programmers are on the increase.

You could develop simple websites for as low as $100 and complex websites runs into millions of dollars to develop. The rate for developing a simple website may appear to be small, but when the money is converted to your local country currency, it becomes appreciable. Yet, you could land more than two of those website development jobs every month.
The need for database professionals is on the increase daily as organizations looks for experts to handle their database. The database of an organization is the life wire of the organization, such that they cannot afford to be careless about it.

To enhance and speed up website functionalities, WordPress makes use of several plugins and themes. These plugins are designed using the PHP language. As much as WordPress blogs pays people massively, yet developing plugins for WordPress blogs may pay you more.
12. Data Analysis
Data analysis is the practice of examining, cleansing, transforming, and modeling data sets in order to discover some useful information, draw conclusions, and make good decisions, often with the help of specialized software. It is effectively used to discover new opportunities, reveal big business relationships, and improve one’s business performance.

13. Video Editing (Videography)
As technology becomes more sophisticated by the day, the need for video editors are on the increase. Several adverts are done using videos as a means of communicating the ideas. You will find this often on YouTube and other television stations. Getting these short video clips demands the services of professionals because these videos will appear before thousands of people and as such, a poorly presented video will make prospective clients to lose interest in your service. Apart from the adverts we see online, the need for movie industries to continue acting movies are their day to day activities such that your job as a videographer will always be demanded. Apart from videography been one of the best information technology skills to learn, it is highly lucrative and relevant in the 21st century.
Photography has evolved from nothing to a very big career. No wonder several people have chosen photography as their occupation. If you are lucky to become a celebrity photographer, you are made for life. Imagine how much the personal photographer of Joe Biden will earn monthly. Rome was actually not built in a day, but with time, effort and consistency, it was finished. In like manner, if you choose to become a photographer today and put in much efforts into it, in the next 20 years you will not regret the decision you made. Seeing that in recent time, the need for pictures has become a daily affair, from weddings to birthdays, to various other ceremonies. You cannot do without photography. Instagram is a clear proof of how photography has evolved and you can make a living from it.
From my assessment, these are the best high income skills you should try to learn. I have taken time to research and come up with my finding in the above listed skill sets. The good part in the skills I listed above is that most of them are work-from-home jobs that though they will take much of your time, your comfort is assured. Also, you can combine more than one of these skills and rake in much money. As we approach a new year, think on any of these skills and you will appreciate your decision.
If you build a career in any of thees skills, you can look for jobs on platforms like writersgig, upwork, freelance, fiverr etc. It will be a good start for you. More importantly is that fact that several of these platforms pay in dollars (not your local country currency), such that when you convert it to your country’s currency, you will surely smile in the end.

|Webmasters / How To Write Quality Content For Your Blog In 2022 by chikachuks1(m): 10:42pm On Jan 01|
In the blogging industry, it is believed that content is key. But beyond contents, we pay attention to quality. This therefore means that quality content is key. To get to the top of search engine result page (SERP), attention should be paid to the quality your contents offer. It is the quality of content that will determine if visitors will return to your blog after their first visit.

He heads straight up to your website. That is where he is sure to get helpful information from. Thus, here are the steps on how to write quality content to your blog.
The very first thing to do in trying to write quality content is to be original. If your content must be quality, then ensure it is original. People will not be happy if your contents are not original. Originality is key. By original, it means that your contents should be written by you. In the case where some part of your contents are copied from other websites, provide the necessary reference to the original source. It will build readers trust and you will not be guilty of plagiarism. Apart from building readers trust, search engines will easily index your contents because of the high level of originality in it. When visitors find out that the information shared on your blog is not correct or true, then there are less chances of returning. Although several contents has been created around every keyword and topic, yet if you come across a keyword or topic, develop it from your own perspective.
Do an in-depth study on every topic you want to write about
In blogging, it is important to remember that your contents are written for people. As such, any topic you want to write on, ensure that you study much around the topic. This is to help you have an in-depth knowledge on the said subject matter. People want contents that answers their questions. They want contents that will give them the information they need. This will only be possible if your content is informative enough. Don’t just write because writing is your hobby. Do not write because it is a must for you to post content that day.
Avoid copying and pasting
Having read to this point, I guess you are still interested in knowing how to write quality content for your blog. If so, you must endeavour to avoid copy and paste as much as possible. Search engines like Google detest it. Apart from search engines, readers will not be happy if they come to your blog just to find out that your contents were copied from another blog. Any blog that is a specialist in copy and paste does not merit patronage. If you must copy, ensure you paraphrase before sharing. There are times when copying is inevitable
Be informative and detailed enough
The next thing to pay attention to in a bid to write a quality content is that it is informative and detailed enough. Try as much as possible to make every of your content the final bus stop to your readers. Make sure that after reading your contents, your readers will still not look for further information to augment what they learnt from your content. Also make sure that they do not seek further verification of your contents. If these are set in place, then be sure that you will have their patronage and recommendation always. Do not hide any helpful or meaningful information from your readers.
If you must employ freelancer writers, get the best of them
There are times when you will need the service of freelancers. You cannot do it all alone. In blogging, content is key. There are some blogs that publish more than 20 contents per day. This cannot be done by one person. You must need the services of others. Therefore, ensure that you get the best of them. Make sure that you do not employ people who are not good in content creation. Go for nothing less than the best. There are platforms where you can hire quality freelance writers. Some of them are writersgig, fiverr, upwork, etc. Patronize them and get value for your money.
Share practical tips
Another thing is that readers love practical a lot. Don’t just tell them how to do it. Tell them how you did it when it was your turn. Share practical and real life scenarios with them. There are times that theories will not help. For example, if you have a content that talks about how to lose 50kg in three months, don’t just tell them what to do. If you know someone that lost 50kg in three months, share the success tips with your readers. They will love your contents more. If you want to teach people how to get more traffic to their blog and you are still battling between 500-1000 daily visitors, then there is a missing link. Share screenshot of your analytics dashboard of the time you were battling with getting visitors and your current dashboard. When they see the progress you’ve made, they will pitch their tents on your blog. With this, you will win the heart of several of them.
Link to other contents on your blog
It may not actually be possible to write a content that provides a complete information about a subject matter in one post. As such, it is important to link to other contents on your blog if they address an aspect of what you are writing on. With this, people can hang around my blog in search of an information, although they move from one page to another. This will increase your visitors dwell time and reduce your bounce rate.

Your content length matter
Lengthy contents matter a lot. Several of the contents on my blog are more than 2000 words long. I have maintained a standard of not having less than 1500 words per content. The reason is because lengthy contents are believed to be more detailed and informative than short contents. As such, try to write lengthy contents. If you do your keyword research and find out topics to write for, find out the blogs ranking for that keyword. Run a thorough analysis on the content and find out the length of the content.
