What To Expect in SEO This 2017

With its rising popularity, numerous companies have been using search engine optimization on their sites. Competition is tight and one way to get ahead is to master the latest trends first. The following are changes and developments in SEO that will happen in 2017 that you want to take advantage of.

Accelerate Mobile Pages (AMP)

This is Google’s initiative to create a new standard for creating mobile versions of websites. This open-source protocol makes simple changes that allow websites to load 4 times faster with 8 times less data. Google favours pages that use this protocol and give them higher rankings in the search engine results pages (SERPs) and even marks them with a small lighting to indicate that it is an AMP.

Dense Content

The internet has been littered with multiple articles about the same topic with the same information but worded differently. People have grown sick of needing to dig through multiple pages just to get the information they look for. This is especially true for technical topics. However, there has been a rise of lengthy articles that talk about a topic comprehensively. This is becoming more and more attractive for readers because it is like a one-stop shop; all the information they need will be present in one page.

Voice Branding

When you do a query search on Google, there will be box on the very top of the SERP. This is called a feature snippet (also called rich answer or direct answer) and its purpose is to immediately show you the answers you are looking without clicking any link. This is usually taken from any site on the first page on an SERP.

But did you know that these snippets are also available for voice searches? This happens when make a query with voice command. Google understands that you are using voice command for a reason and it will answer back with a voice prompt.  This will say “According to [brand/website name] the answer to your question is…” The reference to the brand names in the voice prompt gives the companies a name-recall branding opportunities. When users recall the name of the brand that gave them useful answers, they will keep visiting. This especially useful when recent studies have shown that more user use google with voice command. Gaining a featured snippet on voice command should definitely be part of your 2017 SEO goals.

Machine Learning

During late 2015, Google RankBrain was revealed; a machine learning algorithm. This is an extension of Google Hummingbird. In layman’s terms, this is how their relationship works:

Hummingbird is what finds out and gives what users want when entering long keywords in Google. RankBrain is what studies the long keywords that are too complicated for even Hummingbird to understand. This was made with the intention for RankBrain to update Hummingbird when it further understands how humans word their keywords when looking for a specific answer. Basically, RankBrain is a mind reader.

Although, it’s been a while since there has been an update. Companies practicing SEO can expect that Google will begin releasing multiple updates beginning this year which will open much more possibilities of ranking.

Personal Branding

Personal branding, for a company, means establishing identity standards which include a personality and an image which dictate how the company is marketed. Psychologically, this will engage clients and customers to interact with a company and its website because of how personal it feels. When this happens there will be more website traffic and securement of guest posting opportunities.

How true is it that people will interact more with a company that has personal branding? You can look at social media. Facebook has already adapted to this reality by revising their algorithms to show more posts from personal accounts over company pages.

SEO is a marketing method that evolves as people and technology evolve. Because of this, it is always important to observe and adapt to the evolution. This year, these are the changes but next year there will be more. Be vigilant and always willing to learn new trends to be successful in SEO no matter how much it evolves.

Top 5 Automotive Features We Really Wish To See

Remember the purpose why the first car was built? The biggest necessity that a car fulfils is to reach point B from point A without having to put in much human effort.

But with the years going by, bringing about major discoveries and inventions on the technical field, our expectation from cars have evolved to a great extent. Earlier, we primarily needed a car to reach our destination. Then came in various factors from the technical science and we started to expect reaching our destination in less time with more luxury. More comfort, more functionalities and features along with more entertainment and more of everything that was served on our plates have brought us to a time when a car could quite well be called our substitute for home, our second home.

If we think from the perspective of a geek, a hardcore automobile and science enthusiast, we will be able to create our own wish list of the features that we want our future cars to have. Here are five groundbreaking features that I am sure we all would love to see in the cars in future.

Reality head up display

Head up displays are not a very new concept, but they are not very old either. Having a display towards the top center of the windscreen does look awesome and extremely handy. But we would all love to see a display right on the windscreen.

This technology does sound cool but has some drawbacks as well. For example, the display starts to appear faded when the surrounding gets too bright. The detailing on the windscreen starts to get invisible under such circumstances.

But then, there are some positives as well. Unlike the conventional display screens, Reality Head Up helps driver to keep on the screen and not fetch for the display every time.

Thinner batteries

The batteries on the present generation of cars are very big, heavy and bulky. Besides adding to the weight, this has also brings a major concern for the automobile makers i.e. finding a suitable place to install the battery without having to compromise on the overall balance of the car.

However, we would love to see car batteries that are far smaller in size, or at least do not require a separate place to be installed. Imagine a battery that looks like a part car and does not occupy such a huge space. Preferably, a battery that is thin and bendable like top sheet covering of the car is what we geeks expect cars to have.

Better smartphone connectivity

We do have smartphone connectivity in cars these days. But these integrations are not as deep as we would expect.

Now let me tell you one thing. Smartphone connectivity does not necessarily mean controlling the music system from you smartphone. It is much deeper. It means being able to navigate your smartphone in a way without having to fetch your phone every time. Browsing apps, making calls or managing other features of your smartphone through voice command, steering mounted controls or at least through the entertainment system would get the driver to focus more on the drive, thereby making the roads safer.

In fact, Honda is already pioneering what is called the Apple’s Siri Eyes Free in its new generation cars. This feature will allow the drivers to use their iOS device for making calls, sending messages, etc. through the dashboard itself.

LTE (Long Term Evolution)

Yes, this exists in our world of smartphones. The basic internet based connectivity that a smartphone works on is very common these days. But speaking about cars, built-in GPS devices do not require any kind of internet connection. Meaning – there are no real time updates on the car navigation system.

But imagine, how good it would be if you could get live traffic updates and other related information right on your car’s infotainment system? Excellent, is the answer.

Though many cars still lack internet connectivity, there is a good news from Audi. The company will be implementing LTE in their future models. Once this is done, loading live maps, searching the GPS system with images and a better internet radio quality would all be possible. In fact, you can also turn your car into a hotspot, making internet access for the passengers easier.

Inter-vehicle communication

Though the term sounds that way, this, by no means sounds like a simple technology. It does not mean that you will be able to call the car ahead of you to move away or move faster. This means that there will be an active connection among cars that would help the traffic to function smoother.

This function will also be able to reduce accidents and get road safety right for everyone. If two cars are connected, they can signal about their advent from a bisecting crossing and prevent an accident if the other car falls on the blind spot of the driver.

Summing up

You have to admit that these features form a perfect wish list for all the enthusiasts and geeks who prefer aiming for and demanding for realistic automobile updates rather than wishing to achieve unrealistic goals. Being a fervent geek and expecting technologies that is too good to be launched within the next two decades does not really make sense. Instead, having a wish list that can be fulfilled within a span of few years is always the better option.

The list here is just the same and does not have anything that is too fancy and too unrealistic to be reality. That said, the five features that we read here may soon be a regular feature in the cars that are around five years away from now.

Identifying The Signs Of Unhappy Employees

It’s simple: unhappy employees don’t work well. Their projects will fail, which will make disappointed clients no longer want to invest in your company. This can be avoided if you set a good work attitude example, which can help shape the work culture of your office. Failure to cultivate this culture could lead to endless cycle of employees coming and going; similar to the practice of endo. Because of this, your company will always be comprised of entry level workers and trainees and no associates. Your company cannot evolve to the heights you want to reach if you the people in it don’t perform well.

Now, as an employer, your employees are, naturally, more socially reserved towards you. Because of this, it may be hard to tell if someone has a grievance since they feel like they can’t tell you directly. You’re going to have to look for signs. Here are some examples:

Reaching for only the minimum

As a business, you’re going to want to exceed the expectations of your clients. This attitude is what makes companies evolve. You want employees that believe in this mantra because it encourages them to not just go for bare minimum; they aim to do more to invest in their careers and get the coveted promotion. Employees that don’t aim for the promotion are merely there just for the pay check and not success.  This disinterest to grow in their field means that they aren’t happy with the job or with what they are doing.

Disappearing Acts

If employee absence has been a problem for you, then that could also mean they are unhappy. It’s possible that they relate the workplace to excessive stress. This leads them to find all opportunities to not be at the work space. Signs of this are the following:

  • Tardiness
  • Over-breaks
  • Work and Life Imbalance
  • Clock-watching

Lack of Transparency

People in a company may only have professional relationships but they are relationships none the less – whether it is boss-employee or between the employees. For any relationship to flourish, transparency is a requirement. The lack of this in the office is dangerous because it doesn’t allow trust to form. A sign of an office without trust is eerie silence. While silence is needed for concentration, too much of it means they are not communicating well with each other. This is because they don’t trust each other with their thoughts and opinions. This kind of environment is toxic and it could lead to people leaving or work inefficiency.


People choose to apply for certain jobs over others because they feel like they can use their special skills there. Because of this, being accepted at their desired job will make them feel like their value is recognized. Companies that value their employees inspire them to work hard and invest in their careers in your company.

There are two things that can make an employee feel unvalued; first is if you assign him to do something that you both agreed (via contract) that he/she shouldn’t be doing. This will make him feel like just a person being bossed around. Second is failure to give them credit to a job well done. It is a horrible feeling when you don’t believe like your efforts have any meaning. If you do any of these things, then expect your employees to lose enthusiasm and no longer invest their efforts. Try to re-evaluate the way you see and treat your employees if you see this sign.

Your employees are your most valuable asset and their happiness is the key for success in your business. For the sake of your company’s future and overall positivity, make sure that you make working in your company an inspirational experience.

4. Gradually increase the speed of the mixer whilst slowly adding the granulated sugar, beat till the batter forms stiff peaks. Add in the red gel food color and fold into the batter.
