2011 Seo Trends Everyone Should Understand

2011 Seo Trends Everyone Should Understand
We thought we would get in early and predict the coming trends for SEO in 2011.

1. Increased focus on local search (Google places)
Google has removed the use of external reviews of local search, but in the next year companies will be able to their own certificates from their website appear on the list of places with pictures. This indicates that Google intends to make pictures of the places the cornerstone of the moving direction of research.

2. Various optimized for mobile search
In the same way that Google increase the value of sites quickly, and you will too so that they increase the value to the sites that are optimized for mobile browsing.

3. Increase in the value of a link “in the context”
There will be a better balance between the links of high quality and low, with a penalty for a large number of low-context / quality of links. It reinforces this expectation on the part of the face that everyone is saying that the only way to build links with sites that are in the same field as you.

4. The rise of Yahoo / Bing
There are a lot of cases where the results of Google became filled with the content on the first page that isn’t relevant. It will take only a few of these for a user to start looking for something else. Yahoo / Bing will need to work on partnerships with some browsers and content providers to become a serious alternative, however, but they have all the ability to capture more of the search market.

5. Integration and social media
Media such as Twitter becomes more popular, and we expect to see Google integrate feeds from social networking sites to research and normal. We do not think it will affect the results in any way, or you will not be able to spam Twitter place to improve the normal search. But we do not believe that there will be some reference to the activity of social media within your list. May Facebook Page Twitter / become as good as your material in places of Google, who knows.

6. Website Speed
It is easy to see that Google will continue to make the web site speed an increasingly important factor in assessing the quality of the user experience.

Cost to Build a Home – How to Understand a Contractor’s Quote

Cost to Build a Home – How to Understand a Contractor’s Quote

Most of us can’t wait to find out what our project will cost. I bet that’s top on your mind if you’re thinking of remodeling or building a home.

Once we have our project defined, and plans made, it’s time to contact builders and get quotes. Usually this means calling some General Contractors (GC) to have them put together a bid or quote. But, what is the GC actually doing and what’s included in the quote?

The General Contractor’s First Priority

The first thing to remember is that the GC is hoping to win your business. He can do that by making a good first impression, having excellent referrals to give you, and/or providing you a quote that beats all others.

For some builders, their tool of choice when it comes to gaining your business is to quote as low as they feel they can. But, they can’t shoot themselves in the foot. Quoting low means they have to build in wiggle room to up the quote during construction depending upon how the process goes.

Other builders will try to quote the top end price and let you know it could come in under. Everyone has his or her own style of quoting and doing business and they may or may not let you in on their process.

As simple as getting a quote can seem on the surface, it can really be quite complex. Confusing to you as the consumer, and complicated and tricky for the builder.

What You Need to Know About the Contractor’s Quote

Despite the complexity and flexibility of a contractor’s quote, we can break it down to its basic components and processes. Here’s what goes into a GCs quote:

The Builder needs a set of plans. He or she will either use the blueprints you provide or create them based upon your input.
From the plans/blueprints, the GC/builder will create an extensive materials list, price it out and then add a mark-up of an average of 20-40%
Labor costs are figured based upon the GCs experience and bids received either from subcontractors they know or random bids generated.
To account for fluctuations in materials and labor costs, the GC will either build in a contingency factor in the quote or explain the flexible nature of his quote.
Finally, they will build in their profit margin and mark-up the quote by an average of 12-30% depending on location, complexity of the job, and their own business practices.

Understanding this process will make it easier for you to discuss any quotes you get logically with your builder. A good builder will want you to know what’s involved in the quote and where the potential for changes might lie.

Always Get Competitive Quotes

I recommend that you get a minimum of three bids for your project. The price you get is not the only thing you’ll evaluate. Armed with these quotes and the information gained during your communications with them, you can now formulate opinions about doing business with them. It will become clear to you that it’s not just about choosing the lowest bid.

Keep reading and learning. The more you know about the bidding and quoting process, the better you’ll be at choosing the right builder for you.
