SEO Blues [Infographic]

What follows these words is a strange but interesting weaving of ‘Blues’ history along with Google update history. It’s kind of funny, I’m not sure how telling of myself this is, but as a musician reading this infographic, I seem to know a lot more about blues performers than about the evolution of Google SEO tactics.

It’s strange to think about because I spend a hell of a lot more time Googling things than listening to the Blues. No offense ‘Blues,’ but growing up in Austin, Texas, I’ve had plenty of opportunity to explore more music than just the Blues. Alas, Austin is and has been a Blues capitol ever since Stevie Ray Vaughn graced the world with his presence, so maybe I take back that previous comment back. My city oozes of it. Nonetheless, I learned a good little bit about Google update history through this infographic.

For instance, SEO, or search engine optimization, is a method in which websites try to ‘game the system’ so that their page is as close to the top of the results as possible. It’s something that I’m a familiar with – mostly via attaching keywords to infographic reviews (I.E. what I’ll be doing with this very article). The rest of the infographic mostly lists the changes in the system from Google’s birth until semi-recently. (Where’s Hummingbird, the most recent change for SEO?)

All in all, this is an informative graphic, but no tips for cutting edge SEO in this one. Just some history. I got more music facts out of this than anything else. Blues onward, traveller.

12 Outstanding Personality Traits of a Great Boss [infographic]

July 30, 2014 |  by  |  Business, Lifestyle  |  No Comments

We’ve all had a bad boss. Regardless of who you are, you always want to be better than your bad boss. At the end of the day, you tell yourself that this is just temporary and that you are going to move on to something better. You aspire to achieve more and to succeed where your bad boss has failed. And you will. But first, take an inventory using the 12 traits listed by Office Vibe to see where you are on your path to being a leader in the workplace.

Great leaders and great bosses think positive. When you go into situations thinking positive, you more easily and quickly bounce back from mistakes and failures. You are grounded and ready to take another shot.

A good boss will be honest. Those who can say what needs to be said constructively are respected and revered regardless of location. Can you do that?

Communication is key to success. Communication will take you where you need to go. The tricky part is knowing what to say, how to say it, when, and to whom. With communication, both verbal and nonverbal, a leader in the workplace will inspire those around them to align towards a common goal, and give credit where praise is due.

A good leader pays it forward and acts as a mentor to encourage personal and professional growth for continued success down the road.

Do you have what it takes to be a great boss?

Pop-Up Eateries are Finding Long-Term Success [infographic]

July 29, 2014 |  by  |  Business  |  No Comments

Today, many local eateries are going mobile! It costs significantly less money to own a mobile eatery than a brick and mortar building. Not only is it cheaper, but they can travel the city depending on demand at the time. It costs more than three times the amount to own a stationary restaurant as it does a trailer. Perhaps the mobile business can use the money they save on higher quality ingredients. Alas, it is hard for local restaurants to stay afloat. People expect a higher amount of quality from these places. But someone going to a trailer park eatery may not have as high of expectations. I am sure that they would not be disappointed by the product, though.

It is very sad to me that some parts of the country are still decorated with repetitive chain restaurant signs. With exciting, local restaurants popping up all over the place, I don’t understand how places like Red Lobster, Chili’s and Outback Steakhouse stay in business. Support local businesses everybody!

10 Tips for Better Sleep [infographic]

We want it all: have fun, relax, have time to get our work done, work out, and sleep. Even though sleep is last in that order, it should be at the top of your list. Without a healthy amount of sleep, you are likely to lack or show up without the right energy for the rest of your activities.  If you can’t get to sleep on time, here are some tips to help make the time you do sleep better.

If you are a coffee drinker, do your best to stay away from it after lunch. Caffeine wakes up your body and not your brain, so by taking it, you will only make yourself restless later on.

Netflix is the downfall of many procrastinators’ motivation. With the automatic queue, you can finish a whole season in a day. But when it’s time to go to bed, get rid of anything that produces a lot of light, as well as calls your attention. This will help bring the Z’s.

You should also lay off on drinks and food before bed.  No one likes to get up in the middle of the night to use the restroom.

The last tip is tricky. Use your internal alarm clock. When you have your routine, it’s simple. Sleep when your body is telling you to. When you sleep better, waking up is easier.

If you want your dreams to come true, get better rest so you can have the energy to make those dreams a reality. [via]

Change Your Salty Ways [infographic]

July 27, 2014 |  by  |  Health  |  No Comments

You know how most people have an undeniable sweet tooth that sends them hurling towards cupcakes, candy, and sodas?  I kind of wish I had that, but I have a salty tooth. Too many sweets or something too sweet will give me a tummy ache, along with a throbbing headache. Most people with a sweet tooth can revel in their sugary afterglow, known as a sugar high. In contrast, whenever I indulge in a salty treat, I get puffy, thirsty and bloated. If I have a salty snack any time after 5 p.m., I wake up parched with swollen fingers.

Today’s infographic challenges us to change our salty ways in less than a month. In three weeks you can change your sodium palate, which will lead to your enjoyment of less salty food, and ultimately less bloating. Learning to read and understand food labels, as well as looking for the American Heart Association’s Heart-Check mark on food products can keep your sodium intake at bay. Check out the three week step guide laid out below to help you change your salty ways in only 21 days! [via]
