Want to increase your ROI and improve your SEO strategy? How will SEO evolve in the year ahead? What are the biggest threats and challenges? SEJ's Ben Steele joined me on the SEJ Show to discuss the findings of SEJ's Second Annual State of SEO Study, which includes emerging trends in the world of SEO and can help companies plan for 2023 and beyond. As long as people need to find things, there will be SEO. That explains why this industry has seen so much growth, even with the upset of the last few years and economic issues on the horizon. –Ben Steele, 12:34 Organic marketing or performance marketing forms, such as SEO and affiliate marketing, have risen from staffing and investment perspectives. –Loren Baker, 14:31 If you're hyper-focusing on that automation element, you might be missing its actual value, which is allowing you to go hands-off on some of the things that don't matter as much and focus on creating content that resonates with your audience –Ben Steele, 31:11 [00:00] - About Ben. [06:49] - What is the second annual State of SEO? [09:59] - Number of respondents involved. [10:25] - Preliminary findings that stuck out. [16:09] - Locales with the highest salaries for SEO. [18:20] - Where SEO professionals focused big this year. [22:31] - Metrics to track success. [32:40] - Important emergent factors in the next two years. [41:33] - Difficulties in ebook planning. [43:34] - The difference between an ebook & a white paper. Resources mentioned: State of SEO - https://www.searchenginejournal.com/state-of-seo-performance/ Ebooks are an interesting beast because they have unique difficulties and advantages. The most significant unique problem is they require a lot of buy-ins. By that, I mean they need someone to not only have the time to sit down and read it but to go through the process of discovering and deciding to download it. –Ben Steele, 37:55 People are returning to basics, driven by Google's updates over the last couple of years. –Ben Steele, 19:40 Yes, rankings are nice, but it's much better to have an ROI where people purchase or click. –Loren Baker, 28:16 For more content like this, subscribe to our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/searchenginejournal Are you looking to keep up with current and effective digital marketing today?

Hello and welcome to this weeks bible in the news.We are now coming to the end of the 9th month of the war in Ukraine, which was expected by many to be over within just a few weeks, if not days.Before the invasion the Russian military had supposedly undergone major restructuring and modernisation. It was feared and believed to be only second to the U.S in military might. This all changed within the first week of the war, which exposed major deficiencies in its capabilities, particularly in regard to logistics, discipline, corruption, moral and training.

He kept calling out all the more, “Son of David, have pity on me!” Luke 18:39cGood for him! Here was a blind beggar who was treated poorly by many. He was treated as if he were no good and a sinner. When he began to call out for mercy from Jesus, he was told to be silent by those around him. But what did the blind man do? Did he give in to their oppression and ridicule? Certainly not. Instead, “He kept calling out all the more!” And Jesus took notice of his faith and healed him.There is a great lesson from this man's life for us all. There are many things we will encounter in life that get us down, discourage us and tempt us to despair. There are many things that are oppressive to us and difficult for us to deal with. So what should we do? Should we give in to the struggle and then retreat into a hole of self-pity? This blind man gives us the perfect witness of what we should do. When we feel oppressed, discouraged, frustrated, misunderstood, or the like, we need to use this as an opportunity to turn to Jesus with even greater passion and courage calling upon His mercy.Difficulties in life can have one of two effects on us. Either they beat us down or they make us stronger. The way they make us stronger is by fostering within our souls an even greater trust in and dependence upon the mercy of God.Reflect, today, upon that which tempts you the most toward discouragement. What is it that feels oppressive to you and difficult to deal with? Use that struggle as an opportunity to cry out with even more passion and zeal for the mercy and grace of God.Lord, in my weakness and struggle, help me to turn to You with even more passion. Help me to rely upon You all the more in times of distress and frustration in life. May the wickedness and harshness of this world only strengthen my resolve to turn to You in all things. Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2022 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved. Used with permission via RSS feed.
In celebration of Veterans Day, this week, for Season 3, Episode 8, our host Amy Peck welcomed Mike Hazard, the UA ITF Training Specialist for the United Association Veterans in Piping (VIP) Training Program, onto the show (26-minute interview). Mike and Amy covered reintegrating veterans into civilian life, challenges attracting millennials and Generation Z, technology as a recruitment tool, and the evolution of technology. About Mike HazardIn 1988, Mike joined the United States Navy. He served as an Aviation Rescue Swimmer and H-46 Helicopter Mechanic for 11 years before being honorably discharged in 1999 as a Petty Officer First Class. In 1999, Mike returned to the UA as a Journeyman Pipefitter. As a member of the UA working in the construction field, Mike was promoted to the position of Foreman in 2000, General Foreman in 2001, and in 2002 to the position of General Superintendent. In 2005, Mike accepted a position with the Southern California Plumbers and Pipefitters Apprenticeship & Journeymen Training Trust Fund (A&J Training) as a Training Coordinator.During the interview, Mike discussed numerous topics with host Amy Peck, including:Difficulties approaching the job market as a skilled and trained veteran, and when the Veterans in Piping program originatedChallenges getting the next generation of digital natives to get in and work with their hands in the tradesSome of the other things, whether it's robotics or automation that Mike is seeing being leveraged that poses an exciting evolution in technologyTo ease the transition back into civilian life, the United Association established the UA Veterans in Piping (VIP) Program to equip military service members preparing to leave the service with sought-after skills that can lead to lifelong careers in the increasingly in-demand pipe trades. Through 18-week accelerated courses - provided free of cost on military bases across the country - VIP participants earn industry-recognized certifications and direct entry into solid private-sector jobs with good pay and benefits. In October 2012, Mike accepted a position with the United Association as a Training Specialist assigned to the Veterans in Piping (VIP) Training Program. Mike manages the day-to-day operations of nine VIP training sites and serves as the United Association's representative for Helmets to Hardhats. SHOW NOTES 4:24 - Amy: "So, from your own personal story, you mentioned that your whole family is in the industry, and you had that support system. Was this program created because, collectively, coming out of the military, you have incredible discipline, training, and skills, yet, the job market can be a challenge? When did this program start?" 9:34 - Amy: "Do you find it very common for family members to be in the trade because it seems like there are some challenges getting this next generation of digital natives to get in and work with your hands? Are you finding that as a challenge as well?" 12:31 - Amy: "We talk a lot about technology, especially in traditional industries. I think on the training side, there's been so much great data to support how training in virtual environments, although they are expensive and cumbersome, they're changing workflows. Do you see technology as a way to train more people and entice more people into the industry?"Contact the Future Construct Podcast Produced by BIM Designs, Inc!

#076 This is our fourth of eight episodes in our mini-series entitled, Paul's Treatises | Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians. On this episode we're going to overview the last ten chapters of the book of 1 Corinthians in which Paul answers questions of the Corinthians regarding difficulties they were having in their gatherings as a body.We need to remember this was all new stuff for believers gathering to worship the Lord. The church included Jews and Gentiles both coming from backgrounds ranging from temple to idol worship to agnosticism and atheism. Corinth was a cosmopolitan trade city filled with luxury and a culture seeped in the worldly trappings of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. To “Live as a Corinthian” meant to live in gross immorality reinforced and encouraged by prostitution practiced at pagan temples. Of course this was no different than cultures throughout the history of mankind where every man was allowed to do whatever was right in his own eyes.What Paul had been teaching in Corinth while he was with them and founding the church, and now reinforcing in this letter was counter cultural then and has remained so to this day. As we covered in our last episode on the opening six chapters, Paul was teaching believers how to live as people not of the world but in the world; surrounded by people living in a culture who were in the world and of the world. When Christ set us free from sin and condemnation, from the penalty of the law and death, and from Satan and his dominion what did he set us free to do? This is what Paul is addressing in this letter. Conflict in this freedom arises from two extreme sides. From the Gentile/pagan side comes the thought that given God's grace is unlimited we can now do what you want to satisfy the desires of our flesh without consequences from God as the grace of Jesus covers everything we do. Maybe not all-in to immersion, but at least up to our knees and waist in the squaller of pleasures. This thought has remained in the church to this day.From the Jewish side comes the thought of legalism and adherence to the law. When we were held in bondage to sin we were not capable of keeping the law. But now set free from sin we are obligated and capable of adherence to the law which will be the measure and standard for behavior within the church. This thought has also remained in the church to this day.Paul was letting the Corinthians know, and is letting us know today, that nothing has changed since the beginning. God who is holy, chose and redeemed us in Christ who were dead in our trespasses and sin, to be his sons and daughters and co-heirs with Christ in a coming kingdom. God is going to dwell with us into eternity on earth in a kingdom of God that will have no end. God through Jesus by the Holy Spirit has given us everything we need in this life to live a godly life. Yet when we first become believers, while we know something has happened and we've been changed, have lived no other life other than our formal life of sin and corruption. Paul is instructing the Corinthians and us today how to live our new life in Christ that is wholly antithetical to our former life when we were in and of the world.Even in 2022 we buck against Paul and God arguing we know a better way. Who was Paul anyway, telling the Corinthians and us what to do and how to live. Ancient culture and modern times are judex opposed. We've evolved morally and culturally to accept sex, drugs, and rock and roll and rebellion against the order God established for creation. We have the big bang theory, evolution, and humanism all of which the science and psychology academies accept and endorse. So we'll believe in Jesus, receive his grace, and do what we want no matter what Paul and God say.With all that as an introduction, let's get started.

The recent detentions of politicians, activists, and journalists in Kyrgyzstan and the two conflicts the country has fought in the last 18 months with neighboring Tajikistan have one thing in common -- they stem from attempts to finally demarcate disputed areas of Kyrgyzstan's borders with Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Marking Kyrgyzstan's borders with its southern and western neighbors has not only been difficult, it has been risky. Joining host Bruce Pannier to discuss the situation are Viktoria Akchurina, author of the recently released book Incomplete State-Building In Central Asia: The State As Social Practice, and Bakyt Beshimov, formerly a member of the Kyrgyz parliament, a Kyrgyz ambassador to India and to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.

In a previous episode, we talked about the struggles dating can pose when women are thinking about their desire for children and their biological clock, and all the associated anxieties that can come with it. And we had some incredible and thoughtful responses to what is rightfully a very difficult and emotional topic to discuss (but also an essential one). In this episode, we take the conversation further and look at the disparity between men and women in future planning, why freezing your eggs and planning fertility can be its own enormous challenge, and how to think about making decisions about the future you want when you haven't met the right person yet. --- Download my free guides and give your love life a kickstart today! ►► FREE download: “3 Secrets To Love” → 3SecretsToLove.com --- Email us!

I'm actually not a big fan of the term “drills”, but I don't have a better word for it. I don't like it for several reasons: One, because we aren't “drilling” anything in. Despite the popular belief, that's not actually how learning works. Performance, maybe, but not learning. And in my book, these “drills” are for learning. Two, there are just too many coaches who assume that harder equals better. They just keep stacking difficulties onto their drills as if those difficulties are all going to make you better at climbing. Now we see climbers bouncing one-legged on a Bosu Ball balanced on a slackline while blindfolded and miming rose moves because… WHY? Yeah, I don't know either. And today, we're going to talk about why that might not be the best solution. Taped Tips is presented by Power Company Climbing and Plug Tone Audio. In our Coaching for Mastery course, we go DEEP into how coaches and climbers can create an effective practice. That's literally what the entire course is about. The research, the theories, my experience, and how you can practically apply it.
