Search Engine Optimization

If you want to promote your business like never before, search engine optimization (SEO) can prove usefulness in endless ways. This process of stimulating positive effects on the visibility of a website or a web page in the unpaid results of search engines like Google, Yahoo!, and Bing helps website owners reap the benefits of improved website traffic, sales, and economies of scale, profits, and returns on investments.

Search engine optimization techniques may be used to target a wide range of search, including local search, video search, image search, news search, academic search, and industry-specific vertical search engines. This process includes optimizing a website by editing HTML, content, and coding to improve relevance to specific keywords and eliminate barriers to the indexing activities of search engines.

‘No’ Campaign Victorious In Scotland

September 22nd, 2014 by James

Following a historic referendum vote, Scotland will remain part of the United Kingdom — along with England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. A majority of voters rejected the possibility of Scotland getting away from Britain and becoming an independent nation. The “No” campaign has won the referendum on Scottish independence with 31 of 32 councils declared.

Admitted defeat in Scotland’s independence referendum, Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond urged the rest of Scotland to do the same. In a televised statement, Salmond thanked Scotland “for 1.6 million votes for Scottish independence.”

Edinburgh voted overwhelmingly to stay in the union with 123,927 for “Yes” and 194,628 “No” votes. Argyll and Bute and Aberdeenshire also voted “No.” Glasgow delivered a solid win for the independence camp with 194,779 votes for “Yes,” and 169,347 for “No.”

The counting officer for Edinburgh, Sue Bruce, explained each ballot will be double-checked, to verify each voter’s decision.

Addressing dozens of election workers, Bruce added, “I look forward to working with you during the course of the evening to deliver an accurate and transparent Edinburgh count in which you and the voters of Edinburgh can have full confidence.”

About 790,000 people applied for a postal vote — the largest volume of registration for postal votes ever in Scotland. The vote for the first time was extended to 16- and 17-year olds living in Scotland. Nearly 110,000 people younger than 18 had registered to vote.

Dollar Climbs To New Six-Year High Against Yen

September 10th, 2014 by James

Today, the US dollar rose to a new six-year high against the Japanese yen as the Australian dollar nursed a second session of heavy losses after further gains in U.S. Treasury yields.

Dollar Climbs To New Six-Year High Against Yen

U.S. Treasury yields have moved up as a result, with the two-year US2YT=RR within sight of a three-year peak of 0.590 percent set in late July. On Wednesday the 10-year yield US10YT=RR popped back above 2.50 percent, off a recent low of 2.30 percent, and was at 2.505 percent in Asian trade.

“People missed their chance to buy the dollar on dips,” said Kaneo Ogino, director at Global-info Co in Tokyo, a foreign exchange research firm.

“The interest rate outlook is in focus, as Japanese yields will keep to lower levels,” he said.

The Australian dollar skidded 0.4 percent to $0.9162 AUD=D4, after dropping as low as $0.9154. This was due to a pick-up in market volatility pushing investors to pare back carry trades. The setback of Aussie dollar was sparked by a broad rally in the U.S. dollar. “Traders could see a further correction lower if we see a daily close south of $0.9175, which is a key support level,” said Stephen Innes, senior trader at OANDA Asia Pacific.

The euro edged down against the US dollar, moving back toward a 14-month trough of $1.2859 EUR= plumbed in European trade on Tuesday. The dollar index .DXY edged down slightly to 84.234 from Tuesday’s 14-month high of 84.519.
