Advantages Of Working With A Freelance SEO Consultant

SEO for blogs in wood type

I met with a consultant the other day as I wanted to know how to take my blog to the next level an he gave me some good advice on trying to optimize it for the search engines so my readers can find my articles.

When it comes to search engine optimization you have the option to hire the services of a SEO agency or get your work done by a freelance SEO consultant. Both these options have their own advantages. One of the biggest advantages of working with a freelance SEO consultant is that they are often much cheaper as compared to a big agency.

Also, SEO consultants are more likely to put more efforts to help put you get high rankings in the search engine results as they are usually dependent on referrals from their existing clients to find more clients. On the other hand, a big agency usually has hundreds of different clients and may not be able to pay attention to business owners with small monthly billings.

Here are some of the other benefits of choosing a freelance consultant over working with a large agency.

A freelance consultant has much lower overheads as compared to a traditional company which means that they can pass on the cost savings to you in the form of lower prices.

Most of the big SEO Hertfordshire agencies do not prefer to take smaller projects. On the other hand, smaller projects are the bread and butter for most of the freelance consultants and they do their best to achieve results for their clients.

Most of the agencies charge a standard monthly fee in addition to various other fees. On the other hand, freelance consultants usually charge on a project basis and tend to be much cheaper in the long run.

As mentioned in the beginning, a freelance online marketing consultant is dependent on referrals from existing clients to get more business which means that they are focused on achieving results for retaining the existing clients and get referrals.

A freelance consultant has much more at stake when it comes to search engine optimization projects as compared to a large agency. It means that they will care of your project and make sure that the work is delivered on time.

While there are a number of advantages of working with a freelance consultant, all the consultants are not the same. In fact, there is a lot of difference in the level of service offered by various consultants.

Therefore, it is important that you choose the right consultant to ensure that your project is delivered on time and the consultant achieves the promised results. Here are a few tips on hiring the right consultant.

First of all, you need to list your preferences when it comes to a SEO consultant. Ask the consultant to give you at least three references. This will give you an idea of the quality of work by the consultant for other clients.

Another thing you need to look at is the budget. As far as the cost of hiring a SEO consultant is concerned, it can vary from a few dollars to hundreds of dollars. Therefore, the best way to go about finding a consultant is to fix a budget and try to find a consultant within that budget.

However, you should also keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Therefore, if someone bids much lower than expected, chances are that they will skimp on quality and that may harm your SEO efforts.

Overall, these are some of the tips you need to keep in mind before hiring a freelance consultant. Do not make the mistake of hiring solely on the basis of cost. Check their work and make sure that they always deliver quality work before hiring them.

Back Pain Relief Options

I had to write this post as I was straitening my hair the other day with my hair straighteners and felt an almighty shooting pain in my lower back, I was sitting on the bed at the time.

BACK PAIN
Back pain tends to affect people as they age, starting at 35 years of age and in some cases 25 years. The problem worsens as people age. The problem, nonetheless, is both manageable and treatable. Innovative technologies and other natural forms of treatment are used to offer relief or cure the problem.

Muscle and Nerve Stimulation Gadgets
Muscle stimulation gadgets use electrical current to help patients cope with back pain. The electric currents send to the muscles and nerves stimulating them to alert the brain to scramble the pain receptors in the back. The intensity of the electric current varies depending on the patientís level of pain. Though it may stop the pain, muscle and nerve stimulation gadgets only offer a temporary answer.

Inversion machines
Inversion machine is a table that looks like the standard lounge chair but with several unique features. It has an upper backrest design to offer spinal support though the patient lays on the table while in an upside down position. The inversion machine works using gravitational pressure against the body weight focusing on the spinal disk and the nerve roots. The position and the position increases the space between the vertebrae thus offering relief. Inversion machines are not a cure but a relief option.

Back Stretcher
A back stretcher is similar to a workout equipment that focuses on the muscles of the back. The common back stretcher is the one the uses both the hands and the feet; the hands will stretch the back while the feet will offer support. It offers a better impact because of the increased pressure applied to the spine. The stretching increases the space between the vertebrae increasing flexibility while reducing back pain.

Massaging
Massaging is a natural form of treatment meant to trigger the body to address the back problem. Massaging can be done using hands or machines. The outcome is to stimulate the body tissue and muscle to encourage better blood flow.  While massage done by hand can work, it is donít have a better impact as that done by machines. Machines have vibrations that can go deep into the back to increase blood circulation, which triggers a soothing and relaxing feeling. A simple device such as the neck massager can be used on the back as the patient lays on a massaging table. Other machine used is the massaging chair that can work on the back and neck at the same time. I opted to go for a Massage in Hitchin and found a clinic to go and visit.

Other notable treatment and relief options include back braces, spinal decompressing, and lumber rolls.

Avoid Damaged Hair With A Flat Iron

Sans titre-1

The best flat irons are the ones that best fit your needs and your hair type.  Someone with thin hair would not need to use a wider based one with high temperatures.  Using the proper iron can make your hair beautiful and well styled.  When selecting the wrong iron for your hair, it can do major damage.  It can actually burn your hair, making it look dull and unmanageable.  This can cause a frizzy look and make your hair almost impossible to do anything with it.  When selecting your straightening method for your hair you must find one that matches your hair type.  There are a variety to choose from made with different types of materials and different styles

How Does Heat Damage Your Hair?

Our hair is more fragile than many people realize.  It is divided into three layers, which consist of the cortex, the cuticle and the medulla.  With healthy hair we have a water and air filled medulla and our cuticle is smooth.  This moisture is very important to having beautiful healthy hair.  When your hair gets damaged from heat, this will cause the moisture to be gone from your hair.  Applying more heat to already damaged hair will cause it to become dry and brittle.  It will break and frizz and become more unmanageable making most people frustrated with their hair style.  As these damaged broken hairs start to regrow, they will grow out as new and undamaged hair.  Any heat that is too hot or heat that is added to frequently will dry out your hair.

How To Prevent Damage

  • Be sure to use the proper tools for your hair type
  • A steam producing tool will be less apt to dry out your hair
  • Use as low of a heat that is possible to straighten your hair
  • Be sure to treat your hair with a moisturizing heat protectant before you straighten it
  • Keep your tool clean from burnt hair particles, this can cause damage to your hair

Things To Know That Can Help Protect Your Hair

Even if you are using the best curling iron on your hair, you can still cause damage to it.  Thick hair requires more heat to straighten than finer hair, this is putting the thicker hair at a greater risk for heat damage.  Also color treated hair has already been damaged by the coloration of it so adding heat to it on a regular basis will rapidly dry it out making it weak and brittle.  When someone has thick and coarse hair, it is known that this type of hair is less apt to break off.  Still when excessive heat is applied or heat is applied too often it will also become dried out and brittle.

Never try to style your hair with heat when it is wet.  This will cause a steaming affect and will boil the moisture out of the strands again leaving you with dry and brittle hair.  Another word of caution is that wet hair will stretch to the point of breaking easier.  This will increase the risk of split ends and broken and damaged hair.  It may be wise to speak to your beautician and ask what would be okay to use with your type of hair.  Always use caution and never add too much heat even if your hair is not cooperating with your choice of the best flat irons.

10 Things You Must Never Do to Your Face.

Sans titre-1

#1:    Never go to bed before washing your face and using a moisturizer.  This cleans away harmful environmental factors such as dirt and pollution, both from the air and your hands.  It is also a big deal for moisturizing.  The key to moisturizing is locking in moisture; therefore, you have to open your pores and get water on your face…gently pat dry and quickly apply moisturizer to lock in the moisture.   A lot of people think a moisturizer is good enough…so not true.

#2:   Never go without SPF lotion on your face during the day.    A little bit of sun every day adds to wrinkles, freckles, brown spots, etc. so you should always protect your face…and your neck…and you’re desolate.

#3.  Never sleep on the side of your face.  I know this is hard, but if you don’t want lines and wrinkles, you have to sleep with your face UP.

#4.  Never go to sleep without drinking a full glass of water.   If you do this,  it will hydrate you from the inside while you are sleeping and your cells are repairing themselves.  It is a natural skin miracle.

#5.  Never go without exfoliating your skin AT LEAST once a week, but no more than three times a week.  This does two things:   First, it removes dull cells and reveals your prettiest skin and second, it helps improve circulation that improves cell turnover.

#6.  Never rub hard on your face, especially around the eyes.  The skin is very thin here, and you can ruin it.  Always be gentle with your skin.  Think of it like a rubber band.  The more you pull on it, the more stretched it will become and you definitely do not want that.

#7.   Never squint.  Squinting will cause all kinds of lines in the future, so be sure always to wear sunglasses or wear prescription glasses or contacts if you need them.

#8.   Never make angry faces.  If you are angry a lot, you will surely wear the scowl marks on your face some day.  The next time you are angry, try to catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror…this will help you to stop making angry faces because it’s not a pretty sight.

#9.   Never over smile.  I know this is not fair, but too much facial activity will result in wrinkles.

#10.  Never eat too much sugar because sugar is a collagen destroyer.  Sorry about this one, but if you indulge in sweets, you will not look too sweet later.

How To Firm Skin at Home. Compare to Miracle Face Lift

Sans titre-1

I’ve been buying “firming” cream over the past couple of years and this time I needed my “refill”   I began to ponder about the miracle facelift cream I had been putting on for the past month.   As I had the $40 item in my hand, I thought twice even with a $2 off coupon.  Should I be spending this much money for a “tiny” effect or should I spend my money more wisely, like on a whole bunch of delicious fruits and vegetables at the market.

Could I do this…again?  When would it stop?  $40 a month for a year would be almost $5,000 in 10 years, $10,000 in 20.  I continued to process my thoughts as I stood in front of the massive amounts of creams, lotions, potions and promises.  I could definitely get a lifestyle lift for that amount and see some real dramatic improvement when “absolutely” necessary if I could dare myself actually to do something like that.  I guess the lifestyle lift is the ultimate for when you are “ready” because no lotion is going to help like the lifestyle lift…but for now, I’m fighting father time along with fighting the diminishing funds from my bank account.

I recall that I took a liking to the miracle lift because it actually had a firming feeling that lasted.  So, I decided to look a little closer at the ingredients and see just why this could be and there it was, THE  ingredient:   ”aloe vera”…. that was my aha moment.   So, while, in Walmart, I found a good sized amount of the gel for just a few dollars.  I must tell you that it wasn’t in THE “miracle” cream isle…I panicked as I thought the secret had been discovered and the big corporations seized it from the market.  Still breathing, I found it!  It was near the baby oil in a totally different isle.

I rushed home in anticipation of completing my experiment.   I washed my face as normal, patted it dry and rubbed small drops of the aloe gel into my skin and neck, and I got that “sticky” feeling that dissipated rapidly.  My face felt a little firm, so I decided to repeat after half a minute in upward strokes…careful not to get too close to my eyes.  (As I found out,   it will burn if it’s close).  I applied the gel several times…okay about four times..maybe 5…who cares, it’s really cheap stuff.  Apparently, my skin was drinking it up, so I definitely knew there was layer penetration.

This is important to remember because a lot of the packaging of the beauty skin care products points out that ”it penetrates”  multiple dermal layers.  So, the Aloe Vera Gel definitely penetrated and gave me the feeling of firmness.  That night before going to bed, I did the ritual again and when I woke up in the morning, my skin was gorgeous and felt just a firm as with the facelift miracle that says you’ll see improvement after 4 weeks (or 2 purchases later!)  You have to realize that the cosmetic industry is one of the most profitable industries in the world.

Why?  Well,  actresses, marketing, employees and packaging are expensive…not the ingredients.  It makes me laugh now when I think about getting reeled into the “melon” miracle five years ago.  Good grief, really?  Well,  I’m no longer a sucker and will not be getting roped in to pay for a supermodel’s chemical treatments and the “melon man”.  Okay, don’t argue with me on the “chemical” comment because if it’s not “chemical” then why do you have to travel to France and see a doctor.  Why not buy melons and rub them all over yourself (which I tried, by the way, …didnot work!)

I will try more tests this week and let you know how I make out.   In the meantime, if you have a story you’d like to share about using Aloe Vera Gel, please share your comments.I hope that this article was helpful in some way to help you live a lifetime of health and beauty.
