The publication that prints the news with other information, normally have the Free online classifieds and there publication which has only the advertisements. The advertisements are put into different categories such as plumbing services, kitchen appliances, advertisements and telephones. All the categories also can be classified under wanted or for sale. Classified Ads are cheaper compared to the large display advertisements which are used by large business and they are commonly used if the business has a small budget or by individuals.

Before Classified Ads were common in the print advertisement especially in periodicals but now they are including the same types of advertisement on cable television, television, radio and computer service.

The ads have now found their way into the internet classified and since their price is not based on the per line pricing, it is tends to be long. They have searchable features and they target local people. They foster a sense of urgency and this is a result of their wider scope and daily structure. Because the ads are low cost and they have self policing nature, there are companies that offer the free classified around the world. There are other companies which focus more on the local hometown and others target a urban areas where they use local postal codes. Now there is a growing number of the companies that have grown to specialize into the classified marketplace, catering for new niches like adult services, pets, piano or boats among others. In different cases, the search engine offers better capability compared to the printed and general classified services which are being provided.

SEO: Quality VS Keyword Density

We, the people of this world are very selfish one now. We want to live well, eat good, work well and even see well. Okay there is a question, you are just surfing an internet and you saw a post lengthy enough explaining the whole world and there is another one with a tag line that’s well too catchy stuff? Which one would you go for? You will definitely click on the catchy stuffs. So just like that while in the things related to SEO quality contents is the most. These are what and where people especially the ones who want their post to be SEO optimized gets confused.

Yes, it’s true that SEO is all about the key words and rankings and all for the general person but then as simple as it look, it is that vague. Earlier SEO was all about the key words but now with evolution and changes for good contents is what we focus on. People come up with their stuffs to get optimized but then what they don’t understand is the contents nature, how it should be.

As explained by Aaron Rush of NewYork Designed, a good bunch of key words and somehow quiet a density of keywords will definitely make them reach to half of their destination for SEO but then quality matters the most. People would genuinely don’t open the thing that does not make their head think twice or that does not strike their head upon to lead them to curiosity. So the very important thing that even a client should know and value is the quality contents.

we are aware that SEO is all about good rankings and this is what we are talking on but what I would like to mention is this age is the age of social media and the followers on your social media determines the popularity and having a good amount of followers personally is also a cherry on the top for SEO.

Well, we have been talking about the contents more and more but then what actually are the quality contents is a big issue to be known. One day I was surfing in internet and I saw a sentence “I can eat my dog” that lead to me a big burst of laughter. Well, it did have bunch of keywords and all SEO principles and the post was a way too dense but what made me feel guilt was the reputation of the writer. It is not only about the reputation of the writer but then the answers that surfer usually expects is the main issue. So, contents that meet the need and expectations of the surfer are the quality contents and that is the most in Search Engine Optimization these days that everyone should know.
