How Much Important is the Content of your Website?


“Only the content of your website gives you promotional leg to stand on”


Everyone wants to make money on the web and so as you. This you can make only if you have a web presence and bring customers to your website and turn leads into sales. Your search engine ranking is the key to the amount of visitors, and the success of your website, finally. But… but… but… this is not an easy task. In the age of tough competition it’s difficult to achieve top ranking on the top search engines and for the top keywords.


Its good to a have website highly rich with animated pictures, graphics but if content of your website is not good then its really not worth to have that. Stunning visual design may do a great job of attracting visitors, but, if in the end, the substance isn’t there, all your effort was in vain.


Content is the most vital part of your website. No matter how good is the design or how fast your site, people visit for content, and that is what you should be giving them. There are so many sites around which have no real content, or are just plain boring with some animated pictures. Good content keeps not only your visitors interested and give you a good site but it can also help you to promote your website.



What I believe is, for any type of business, a plenty of well-written, informative, related content of your website is a prerequisite to infinite success. The more pages and words you have, the more chance you have or being on the top as a search result. You must have heard about Google, EBay, Yahoo, MSN, etc. Would you say that these sites have stunning designs and visual effects…Not at all!! These sites offer information first i.e. content. See, Google gives you one of the best search results; yahoo provides content, news, products, etc in abundance. You will be astonished by the fact that the top-ranking web pages on Google are consistently much better written than the vast majority of what one reads on the web.


So how can you get high-quality content on your website? There are many ways to add content to your website:



Write Yourself


Writing yourself is the cheapest way of generating the content. But for this you need a good knowledge of your subject to be able to write effectively on it. If you have the skills and time to generate content then this is really the best route to take. You have to focus on your site’s purpose and find a way to balance the information in categories that help communicate your goals.


Hire someone else to Write


If you do not feel confident enough of writing great content yourself, it’s better to hire a good writer to do it for you. But before choosing an appropriate copywriter, but he should possess Search Engine Marketing (SEM) or Search Engine Optimization (SEO) copywriting experience. As you have a website which is selling your business, and your main aim is to bring traffic to your website. So a person with an experience of SEM/SEO can only do wonders for your business.


Last but not the least, If you are running a business and want traffic then there must be more value in writing higher quality content than in redesigning your site or updating your technology. Just get your designing out of the way and let your visitors have what they want, information. I’m not trying to detract from visual design, information design or good technology. Each makes a huge difference in the quality of a web site, but the web site doesn’t stand a chance without content.

Pearson Wins Iowa Student Record and Transcript Exchange System Project

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – July 30, 2009 – Pearson today announced the company has been awarded a contract from the state of Iowa for the Iowa Student Record and Transcript Exchange System project. At the center of the project is the National Transcript Center (NTC) provided by Edustructures, part of Pearson’s Assessment & Information group. Edustructures will oversee project implementation and ongoing support of the NTC solution, and will provide project management oversight for deployment of the web-based education portal provided by Choice Solutions. The Iowa Student Record and Transcript Exchange System project is a collaborative effort among four components of the Iowa education community, including the Iowa Department of Education (DE), Regent institutions, community colleges, and local school districts. The DE will serve as the facilitator of the project working with Edustructures for project delivery.

The Student Record and Transcript Exchange System is an expansion of the state’s Project EASIER (Electronic Access System for Iowa Education Records). The NTC solution—branded as the Iowa Transcript Center (ITC)—will facilitate the flow of student transcripts between Iowa high schools and postsecondary institutions as well as the flow of student records between Iowa school districts, thereby significantly reducing the workload of district administrators. This implementation also includes a permanent electronic transcript repository designed to provide a central location for all final high school transcripts. In addition, the project includes a secure, single sign-on, enterprise-grade web-based portal – branded as the Iowa EdFusion Portal – that can be used by school district personnel, postsecondary institutions and the DE to easily and quickly access transcripts.

The key goals of the project include:

·      Facilitating the ability to analyze and examine longitudinal data at the local, postsecondary, and state level for relationships and patterns that affect student progress and improvement

·      Ensuring portability of student school records by standardizing the data and automating the electronic transfer of student records when students move between  districts within the state of Iowa

·      Reducing the administrative burden for school districts by automating the secure delivery of an estimated 200,000 student transcripts to postsecondary institutions annually

·      Providing a secure, user-friendly, web-based portal that will serve the data accessibility needs of the citizens of Iowa, including parents, students, school districts, and postsecondary institutions

·      Delivering secure data accessibility that will assist the DE in meeting state and federal reporting requirements


“This project is a critical next step in meeting the DE’s objectives for easing the workload of school districts, standardizing education data, and improving data accessibility for all Iowa citizens. Given our objectives, we knew we needed a solutions provider experienced in successfully delivering integrated data solutions for education,” said Jim Addy, Iowa Department of Education. Pearson is uniquely qualified to help us deliver on our vision, providing technology, project management, and partnering with third-party vendor to meet our needs. In particular, NTC offers a very comprehensive solution for exchanging electronic student records, Edustructures has an impressive track-record for successfully delivering on statewide, mission-critical data management solutions, and Choice Solutions provides an enterprise-grade education portal.”


"The Iowa Department of Education—supported by funding from the state legislature—is on the forefront of envisioning and deploying solutions that provide the linkages between data and educational improvement,” said Steve Curtis, president of Edustructures. "We’re pleased to be chosen to deliver a solution that will serve the state’s constituents now and into the future.”

Students Awarded ESRI Software in Geospatial Technology Section of SkillsUSA Championships

Redlands, California–Winning students in the Geospatial Technology competition, part of the National SkillsUSA Championships recently held in Kansas City, Missouri, were awarded prize packages that included ESRI’s ArcGIS software.

SkillsUSA was founded in 1965 as the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America with a mandate to provide formal leadership and training for high school students preparing for employment after graduation. It now includes college students in some sections. The program’s goal is to increase technical and vocational skills among young people to enhance their employment opportunities.

Timothy Hales from Central Piedmont Community College in North Carolina was the gold medalist in the geospatial technology competition and received a comprehensive ArcGIS software package that included ArcView and four extensions as well as a cash prize. Silver and bronze medalists Denver Dobbins and Rachel Harris, respectively, both from Central New Mexico Community College, also won ArcGIS software and cash awards.

All contestants submitted written proposals for a campus garden site suitability study based on the program developed by Digital Quest, Inc., which creates geographic information system (GIS) training courses and awards certifications recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor. Solutions were developed using ArcGIS, and project findings were presented in both written and oral reports. Contestants were also required to take a written examination.

Eddie Hanebuth, president of Digital Quest, was instrumental in convincing the directors of SkillsUSA to include GIS in its program. Commenting on the competition, he said, "This contest is designed to be very difficult. The winner will have proven that they understand and can implement a full range of geospatial skills. This includes project management, software usage, map layouts, report writing, and data prep. The winner should prove to be a highly sought-after employee.

"As the economy forces both companies and institutions to put more emphasis on cost-cutting measures, geospatial technology is poised to be the go to technology. The ability to find geography-based cost reductions is unique to geospatial technology. Employers in both the private and government sectors are looking for ways to shave budgets, and geospatial technology can deliver. The future is bright for students and employees that can use geospatial technology wherever they are employed."

Dr. Tom Baker, ESRI’s education industry Internet manager and one of the competition judges, stated, "The level of ability exhibited by the participants in the Geospatial Technology contest was impressive. It is clear that the educational efforts by ESRI, Digital Quest, and others, are working. Spatial thinking and GIS skills are increasing among our secondary and university students, who will provide great benefit to society as they fill an important workforce need utilizing GIS technology."

Lawsuit: Amazon ate my homework

A Michigan high school senior has sued Inc. over its deletion of copies of George Orwell’s classic novel 1984 from the Kindle eBook reader, claiming the deletion has affected his studies, reports the Wall Street Journal. The suit, which seeks class-action status, claims that when the company wirelessly deleted the text from Justin D. Gawronski’s Kindle earlier this month, it also deleted the notes he had taken on the device for his homework. The suit seeks to prevent Amazon from again deleting books from Kindles. It also seeks monetary relief for people like Gawronski who lost work from the incident. Amazon has declined to comment on the suit. The company, which refunded the purchase price of Orwell books to people whose copies it deleted (owing to copyright concerns over the legitimacy of the original sale), already has said it would not take such action again. Last week, the company’s CEO, Jeff Bezos, apologized for the incident, calling it "stupid, thoughtless, and painfully out of line with our principles."

Experts find iPhone text-message security flaw

Two security experts have found a vulnerability in Apple’s iPhone that allows a hacker to take control of the phone through a text-message attack, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. Cyber security researchers Charlie Miller and Collin Mulliner explained the security hole at the Black Hat cyber security conference in Las Vegas July 30. They said they informed Apple of the problem a month ago but the problem has not been patched, and Apple reportedly has declined to comment on the issue. The iPhone, the researchers said, can be controlled by an outside hacker through a series of mostly invisible short message service (SMS) bursts. MyMobiSafe founder Eric Everson said it’s highly unlikely iPhone users will be targeted. He said the attack would require hundreds of SMS texts (512 to be exact) to any phone–and if any of the messages are deleted before the attack is complete, the hack will not be effective. If you receive a text message with a square in it, he said, turn off your iPhone or switch the device into airplane mode…
