Kennedy Jr, a prominent anti-vaccine activist who had over 800,000 followers on the platform, The Wall Street Journal reports. A spokesperson for the service said his account was removed “for repeatedly sharing debunked claims about the coronavirus or vaccines.” His account on Facebook, however, is still live, with Facebook telling Variety that it has no plan to remove the page “at this time.” Kennedy has been cited as one of the top spreaders of COVID-19 misinformation by the nonprofit organization Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH), the WSJ notes.

Posted by kellyjcoopMany marketing channels are interruptive by nature, meant to divert attention away from a task, be it reading and replying to emails, perusing articles online, browsing social feeds, listening to the radio, watching TV — the list goes on. SEO is one of the only marketing channels (the only?) that serves to first deliver something, instead of asking before delivering. At its core, SEO is used to deliver helpful content to people actively searching for it. And, it can (and should!) be used to reach target audiences at the local and national level. According to Google, searches for local places without the use of “near me” have grown 150% over the last two years — showing that, when people search, they’re increasingly expecting local results. This creates a powerful opportunity for those organizations primed to take advantage of it. Through the “search and deliver” dynamic of SEO, nonprofit marketers have the opportunity to reach local audiences that indicate their interest and engagement through their search behaviors. Nonprofit marketers can leverage this to engage supporters, drive donations, and share their nonprofit’s mission with the world. So, how do you make the most of local SEO? Read on for local SEO tactics you can try today. Before we dive in, it’s important to first understand what primary factors impact your nonprofit organization’s local search engine rankings. This can be distilled into four primary areas: relevance, distance, trust, and prominence. Relevance: How well your website matches the search term a user searches for. If Google determines your business is an educational charity, then your website has a higher likelihood to rank for the term “education charity” in comparison to another business Google determines is a health nonprofit. Distance: The proximity of your business to the searcher. As Google learns more about you and your whereabouts via the ever present homing beacon in your pocket — your smartphone — distance has become a top (if not the top) ranking factor. Essentially, the search engine result page (SERP) for “health nonprofit” in Portland, Oregon will be completely different from the result in Seattle, Washington. Heck, the SERP in the Portland ZIP code of 97219 will be different than the Portland ZIP code of 97209.  Trust: How trustworthy Google thinks your business is, based on its reputation. This could be determined by your review quantity and ratings, or the number of high-authority websites that link to your website. Quantity and quality of reviews, quality and quantity of linking domains, domain age, and quality of website content are a few ways that Google can determine trustworthiness. Prominence: How often your business appears across the web. Examples could be a mention of your nonprofit online (by a local news outlet, for example) or a business listing on directory sites like Great Nonprofits or Charity Navigator. Some of these are easier to impact than others — you can’t change the distance of your business to the searcher — so let’s dive in to five local SEO tactics you can implement today. 1. Create or claim a Google My Business page — it’s free! Google accounts for 88% of all online searches, so making the most of Google is critical in developing a strong online presence for your nonprofit. Google has also reported that 46% of online searches have local intent, so doing what you can to amplify your nonprofit’s local search presence can have a big impact on your business. Are you convinced? I hope so. Creating and/or claiming a Google My Business (GMB) page is a great first step in leveraging Google — and it's completely free. When you create a GMB page, your nonprofit is listed in Google Maps, your odds of getting listed in Google’s local 3-pack improve, and you’re more likely to improve your overall local search rankings, thereby ensuring that more people searching for your nonprofit (or nonprofits like yours) find you. By creating a Google My Business(GMB) page, you tackle all four ranking factors outlined above, so if you can only do one of the tactics outlined in this blog post, do this one. If you already have GMB pages claimed and completed for all your business locations, high-five! Go ahead and skip to #2. Before you start claiming GMB pages, the first thing you’ll want to do is collect and organize accurate location data, or “NAP” (name, address, phone number), for all of your nonprofit locations. A few things to keep in mind when it comes to NAP: Always use your real-world business name. The name you list here should match the sign on your door, your marketing collateral, etc. Always use your real-world address. Don’t include information in the address line to describe the location; stick to your mailing address.Use a local phone number whenever possible vs. a call center helpline. Bonus tip: Depending on how many locations you have, keeping track of location data can get unwieldy fast. If you have more than a few locations, I highly recommend you (or someone in your organization) create and manage a single source, like a spreadsheet, that has all your business’s location data centralized and organized in one place. After you organize your location data, you’ll want to go through and claim and/or update the Google My Business pages for all your locations. Here are step-by step instructions from Google. Things to keep in mind when completing your GMB listing: Include a primary business category to describe what your business does to Google and to the people searching. If multiple categories describe your business, choose the category that most closely matches your ranking goals as your primary category. Then, you can add up to 9 additional categories for a total of 10. For help selecting categories, check out our blog post on How to Choose a Google My Business Category.Select attributes for your business. There are a variety of attributes available for you to share more about your business, such as accessibility attributes, whether your nonprofit identifies as Black-owned or women-led, LGTBQ+ friendly, etc. The list of available attributes is pretty extensive, but select only those that are applicable, relevant, and accurate. Write a thoughtful business description. You have 750 characters to describe what your nonprofit does and what makes it unique. Include keywords in the business description. Focus on 1-2 high-value keywords that are relevant to your nonprofit, and avoid keyword stuffing (the unnecessary repetition of keywords throughout on-page SEO elements). Add photos! According to Google, businesses with photos receive 42% more requests for directions and 35% more click-through to websites. When selecting photos, choose authentic, high-quality photos that showcase your nonprofit.Select a profile photo to note your preferred photo choice for search results. This isn’t foolproof — there is no guarantee that your profile photo will appear first — but it does indicate to Google which photo you prefer. 2. Claim your local business listings The places you can create a business listing online are growing exponentially, from social networking sites to specialized, vertical-specific directory sites that allow people to research, compare, and share reviews of businesses, products and services. These online destinations present marketers with local citation opportunities — opportunities to get your nonprofit in front of more people. In the past, amassing a large quantity of citations was a favored tactic when increasing local search rankings. Now, as factors impacting local search rankings evolve, the verdict is out on whether local citation quantity remains so important. Claiming and managing your online business listings may help your nonprofit rank higher for local search queries and it will help more people discover your nonprofit online. You will reach a larger audience by creating complete, accurate, and engaging experiences everywhere your target audience searches. Not sure how you show up? You can use Moz’s free Check Presence tool to see how your nonprofit appears across the web. 3. Develop an online review strategy Reputation is a valuable asset for any business, and that’s especially true for nonprofit organizations, where donations are given and sponsorships extended based on the organization's reputation for doing good. As more people turn to digital to find, research, and evaluate charities that align with the causes they care about, your online reputation becomes increasingly important. Online reviews are a facet of your nonprofit’s overall brand reputation, and should be managed accordingly. In addition to the brand benefits, an active review strategy has the added value of increasing your nonprofit’s online visibility. Review quantity, recency, and quality are factors that help Google determine how trustworthy your website is, which is one of the ranking factors we covered earlier. Google has said high-quality, positive reviews can improve your business visibility. A few things to keep in mind when it comes to reviews: Make it easy for people to leave reviews. You can create and share a short url for customers to share reviews of your nonprofit. Solicit honest reviews. Sometimes all you have to do is ask! According to a 2019 study, 76% of people who were asked to leave a review do so. Don’t solicit reviews in bulk — This is against Google’s policies. Google does not provide a definition of what they mean by “bulk”, but typically this refers to sending many requests at one time via an automated platform vs. a one-on-one request.Don’t pay for reviews. This practice is also against Google’s policies. Respond to reviews, even negative ones. When you reply to a review, it shows that you value the feedback, plus, conversion rates (clicks to call, clicks to directions, etc.) increase when companies engage with and reply to reviews. Don’t be deterred by negative reviews. 90% of people are open to changing negative reviews if the issue is addressed. Again, sometimes all you have to do is ask. 4. Choose the right keywords to target Keyword research, or choosing the “right” keywords to target, is a foundational aspect of SEO because it provides a roadmap you can use to optimize existing content, and produce new content in the hopes of ranking higher in SERPs. It requires an understanding of your target audience and how they’re searching for content online. The end-goal is to determine: The specific terms your audience is using to search online. The number of searches for a specific keyword over a given time period, or search volume.What your target audience is expecting to find when they search for that term, or the searcher’s intent. When targeting keywords, you want to focus on high-volume, high-intent keywords that are relevant to your nonprofit and that you could realistically rank for. This only begins to scratch the surface — keyword research is a BIG topic! — so if you’re ready to dive in to keyword research, I highly recommend that you check out The Keyword Research Master Guide. Then, once you’ve identified your target keywords, remember to pick terms that best describe your nonprofit and include them in the business descriptions of your Google My Business and other local business listings. 5. Conduct on-page optimization On-page optimization is the process of optimizing specific pages on a website for the keywords you want to rank for. This includes on-page SEO ranking factors like the content on the page itself, or the source code such as page title and meta description. Through on-page seo, you help Google accurately determine what your business is and what it does, and how relevant your website is to what people search for. For example, if you have the term “global education” in a page URL, in the page title, description, and in the content of the page, Google is more likely to determine that the page is about global education and, your page will be more likely to rank for that term. A few tips to keep in mind when it comes to on-page SEO: Develop E-A-T content. E-A-T stands for Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness. Google uses this framework to determine high-quality content, and high-quality correlates with higher search engine rankings. There are a variety of E-A-T tactics you can leverage — for a run-down I suggest you watch E-A-T and the Quality Raters’ Guidelines — but in the end, it adds up to demonstrating your business’s expertise and legitimacy to Google. Intentional keyword usage. It’s still important to include a target keyword in the title tag, description, headers, and through the content of the page, while avoiding keyword stuffing. Page titles and descriptions aren’t just for rankings. Crafting a compelling page title and description can lead to better SERP click-through rates — more people clicking on your website from the search engine result page. You’ll want to pair an attention-grabbing headline with a description that is specific, relevant, and (most importantly) helpful. Don’t forget about page load speed. Page speed is a search engine ranking factor and refers to how quickly your page loads for a user. You can use Google’s free PageSpeed Insights tool to see how your web pages stack up.Avoid keyword cannibalization. Keyword cannibalization occurs when multiple pages on your website are all competing for the same keyword. You put yourself in the position where you’re competing with yourself for rankings! Not only is this inefficient, it can have negative impacts, such as making it difficult for Google to identify the “best” or most relevant page on your website for your target keyword, diluting backlinks, or decreasing page authority. Conclusion These are just some tips of many, many potential ways you can leverage SEO to help grow your nonprofit organization. It may seem daunting at first, but investing in SEO is well worth it. And, it’s okay if you need help along the way! If you’re at the stage where you’re currently evaluating a partner or tool for your SEO needs, ask the following: Does the partner meet your value standards?

How to fund a nonprofit organizationA non-profit organization cannot be run like a business.Financing is usually a problem, where there is not a model that can be reproduced by all, but eachthe organization seeks its own path according to its characteristics.Some rely on the loyalty of their members, others choose to charge for their services.Governments and various NGOs around the world have also been concerned with the issue and help finance initiativessocial, but never enough for everyone.Having many volunteers is not enough, financial resources are key for an organization to be able to perpetuate its function over the years.The sourcesTraditional funding for nonprofits are:Membership fees - It works very well in small organizations, but when it grows, they lose closeness to members and therefore often stop paying.It is critical that partners can seewith their own eyes the achievements of the organization, encouraging them to continue supporting the cause.Public grants - Funding is available nationally and internationally, especially directed toward organizations that care about social issues.

(NewsUSA) – Going back to school, whether online, in-person, or a combination, is a yearly expense that can be especially challenging for military families.In 2019, families in the United States spent approximately $700 per child on school supplies for the school year, according to the National Retail Federation.The combination of backpacks, clothes, notebooks, and lunchboxes adds up, and many schools also ask parents to contribute as much as $100 per family to help cover the costs of classroom materials.Many military families find themselves hard-pressed to purchase school supplies on top of other child-care costs and household needs.Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit organization that has been supporting strong, stable military families since 2002, has taken on the challenge of getting military kids classroom-ready through its annual Back-to-School Brigade program, established in 2008.This year, Hunt Heroes Foundation (HHF), a nonprofit organization founded by Hunt Military Communities (HMC), the nation’s largest military housing owner, has announced its support of Operation Homefront and its Back-to-School Brigade.HHF will be delivering 1,850 backpacks filled with school supplies to HMC communities in the continental United States in advance of the 2020 school year.“Operation Homefront is proud that Hunt Military Communities is helping bring our Back-to-School Brigade program to military families in their communities,” says Robin Miller, senior director of Operation Homefront.“With their support, we are able to distribute backpacks filled with school supplies to those who have given so much on behalf of all Americans and ensure that their children have the tools for a successful start to the school year,” Ms. Miller emphasizes.The event aims to ease some of the financial burdens of back-to-school costs for military families, and the backpacks are tailored to all ages and grade levels.“We are honored to partner with Operation Homefront on an initiative that will support military families during this uniquely challenging back-to-school season,” says John Ehle, president of Hunt Military Communities.“It is our goal to make the process as seamless as possible for parents, and make sure that their children are prepared to start the new school year, whether virtually or in-person.”In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Back-to-School Brigade will be adjusted to adhere to federal, state, and local COVID-19 guidelines with features such as a drive-through format.For more information or to support these organizations, visit OperationHomefront.org and huntmilitarycommunities.com.Thanks: NewsUSAThis may be the time to consider SEO in Singapore.You may also like Gooogle sites and Mix

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos gave his first-ever Congressional testimony on Wednesday, alongside CEOs of Facebook, Apple, and Alphabet. Bezos dodged most of the sensitive questions, instead saying that he'd get back with a more detailed answer at a later date. The careful approach is understandable given Bezos is speaking under oath, according to legal experts. But some experts believe he could have been more direct in addressing the key issues, like allegations of accessing seller data. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Americans got a rare chance to take the measure of the world's richest person on Wednesday, when Jeff Bezos, the press-shy CEO of Amazon, testified before Congress for the first time. But far from making an indelible impression, Bezos stood out mainly for what he didn't do, sidestepping sensitive questions about Amazon's market power and business practices, and behaving with the calculated caution of someone hoping not to be noticed in a crowd. During the House Antitrust Subcommittee hearing that also featured the top execs of Facebook, Apple, and Google, Bezos mostly stuck to party-line comments, rarely giving definitive answers, and instead offering to get back with more details at a later date. By one count, tracked by the Markup news site, Bezos had the most "I'll-get-back-to-you-on-that" comments of the four CEOs at the hearing.  At one point, Bezos struggled to answer a basic question about requiring seller names and addresses when opening an account on its marketplace, saying he'd get back because he'd "rather give the accurate answer." Amazon does verify seller name, address, and phone numbers, a company spokesperson later told Business Insider. The cautious demeanor underscores the heavy scrutiny Bezos, the world's richest person, is facing as lawmakers debate whether Amazon, along with other tech giants including Apple, Alphabet, and Facebook, need to be broken up in an effort to foster fair competition. While it may make Bezos look evasive, and almost detached from the company, it's the right approach when you're testifying under oath, according to Bill Kovacic, former chairman of the Federal Trade Commission who now teaches antitrust law at George Washington University. "He was trying to be very careful — it's a natural consequence of being sworn in," Kovacic told Business Insider. "Rule number one is never guess or speculate." 'Can't guarantee it's never been violated' Bezos, one of the most feared competitors in the business world, has earned a reputation as someone with the courage to fight for their beliefs — as was the case in 2019, when he publicly declared that he would not cooperate with a tabloid that had obtained sensitive selfies and text messages about his extra-marital relationship.  But the Bezos that appeared before lawmakers on Wednesday showed no signs of spoiling for a fight. When Florida Republican Matt Gaetz attacked Amazon for working with the Southern Poverty Law Center — a renowned, 50-year old nonprofit that monitors extremist and hate groups — because in Gaetz's word the group is hostile to "Christian doctrine" and "out of step," Bezos demurred.  "I'm going to acknowledge this is an imperfect system," Bezos said, of Amazon's program allowing consumers to donate to charities that include the SPLC. And when it came to important questions about the company, some legal experts said Bezos should have been a lot more forthcoming. That includes his response to a question about Amazon looking into individual seller data to clone best-selling products. The question follows a Wall Street Journal report alleging that Amazon employees accessed proprietary data about third-party merchant on its platform in order to come up with its own competing product that eventually stole market share from the original seller.  Bezos said it's against company policy to access proprietary seller data, and the company has additional safeguards to prevent it from happening. But he said he couldn't guarantee that policy "has never been violated," adding that the company is still investigating the case. "I do not want to go beyond what I know right now," Bezos said. John Kirkwood, a law professor at Seattle University, told Business Insider that it was "disappointing" to see Bezos dodge the question because it was the issue of greatest importance during the hearing. Given tbat the story came out in late April, Amazon had plenty of time to come up with a better answer, he said.  Instead, Bezos could have used it as an opportunity to tackle the antitrust issue more directly, explaining why it's pro-competitive to use publicly available information to copy or improve others' products. He could have also explained in more detail about Amazon's policy of prohibiting the use of confidential data about individual sellers, he said. "You'd think on such a key issue they could move faster," Kirkwood said. 'Amazon Heroin' Part of the reason why Bezos failed to appear more engaged may have had to do with the format of the hearing. Due to COVID-19, the testimony took place virtually, with each of the CEOs speaking through online video conferencing software. Because each speaker was given a five minute limit to ask questions, some of the conversations seemed rushed and disorganized, according to Juozas Kaziukenas, CEO of Marketplace Pulse. He said it would have been more effective if the committee had questioned each CEO on separate days, as the questioning seemed to lack depth. "It didn't seem to present any new angles or uncovered evidence," he said. On less sensitive issues, Bezos didn't appear to hold back.  Rep. David Cicilline, who chaired Wednesday's hearing, shared a story about a seller who compared Amazon to heroin for its addictive nature — because it's so big, it's the only place to sell online and merchants keep coming back, even if Amazon may engage in abusive tactics, like copying their products or undercutting them. Bezos disagreed with the characterization, saying Amazon only opened up its marketplace to third-party sellers to help both the sellers and customers on its marketplace. Although it was a "very controversial" idea internally when Amazon first accepted third-party sellers, the company was eventually convinced by the many benefits, he said. Bezos also disputed the idea of Amazon being the only viable online marketplace for sellers. When asked about its growing market size, including Amazon's roughly 40% share in US e-commerce, Bezos said he doesn't think e-commerce should be considered a separate category from the broader retail market (under that premise, Amazon owns just 4% of total retail).  "I think we're the best one," Bezos said. "But we're not the only option [for small sellers]." On one occasion, Bezos appeared to take a jab at Facebook. When each of the CEOs were asked to share their thoughts on social media, Bezos said he viewed it as a "nuance-destruction machine," without further elaborating. Amazon's biggest critics, however, took Wednesday's hearing as an opportunity to pounce on Bezos. Athena Coalition, a nonprofit organization that previously organized worker walkouts for Amazon employees, said Bezos largely gave "non-answers" during the hearing, often appearing to lack "the will or competence to change Amazon through his own leadership." "During today's hearing, Jeff Bezos seemed to be unaware of the widespread harms that Amazon inflicts, including the company's mistreatment of sellers, raising the question: has Amazon grown too big to be managed?"

(NewsUSA) – Shen Yun, or the "beauty of divine beings dancing," has been enchanting audiences worldwide since 2006.Ancient artistic techniques merge with present-day skill, talent, and energy as the Shen Yun Performing Arts company continues its tradition of unique, renowned performances this spring with a whole new selection of songs, dances, and musical scores celebrating 5,000 years of ancient Chinese culture.Extolled by audiences as "the experience of a lifetime," a Shen Yun performance showcases the values, virtues, spirituality, and creativity that once flourished in the Middle Kingdom (aka China), which the ancients preferred to call Shen Zhou, "the Land of the Divine."The performers combine long-ago legends and traditional music and dance with modern-day heroic tales, high-tech backdrops, elaborate costumes, and a live orchestra for a stirring, cross-cultural experience designed to inspire hope and joy.In each piece, elements of Eastern philosophy combine with universal themes of harmony and peace.Shen Yun performers embrace the traditional Chinese idea that artists must cultivate inner goodness in order to create true art, and this positive attitude shines through each performance.Sadly, the traditional Chinese culture displayed by Shen Yun cannot be presented in today’s China, where it is viewed as a threat by the current Communist regime.Shen Yun began its 2019 tour at Lincoln Center in New York last month, and will proceed with performances in Philadelphia, Chicago, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Seattle, and more than 50 other U.S. cities with another stint at the Lincoln Center in March.Shen Yun Performing Arts is a nonprofit organization, based in New York and dedicated to reviving ancient Chinese culture.The organization has grown to include six companies, and the 2019 schedule includes shows at 120 of the world’s top venues, with an estimated audience of 1.3 million individuals.The San Francisco Chronicle described a Shen Yun performance as "a visually dazzling tour of … Chinese history and culture."Others have been similarly complimentary, as they witness this unique portrayal of the impact of the divine on Chinese civilization and a culture that embraces living in harmony with nature and with the universe.Visit shenyun.com or the company’s YouTube page www.youtube.com/shenyun for more information and a taste of the Shen Yun magic.For Shen Yun 2019 tour schedule and tickets, visit: www.shenyun.com/tickets.This may be the time to consider SEO Service.
(NewsUSA) – It doesn’t take a college degree to understand that a four-year education may not be the end-all and be-all it once was, according to a new survey of U.S. high school students.With rising costs for higher education, and the way it equates to a career, more high school students say costs will be a "deciding factor in which college they attend or whether they end up going at all," according to the Washington D.C.-based nonprofit College Savings Foundation.The survey, which is in its 10th year, found that of the 500 students polled, this year saw the highest percentage (55 percent) say they are thinking about technical schools and career schools in the same way they look at traditional universities.This is good news for technical schools (most notably transportation technology and repair), that to date have had trouble attracting students through their doors."There is more computer code in today’s cars than there was used to put a man on the moon," says Jennifer Maher, chief executive officer of the TechForce Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports students through their education into successful careers as professional technicians."To put this into perspective, according to Motor Authority, a Ford GT has more than 10 millon lines of code and the new Ford F150 pickup has more than 150 million lines of code.Compare that to the shuttle’s primary flight software, which contains approximately 400,000 lines of code, and it becomes easy to see the necessity of skilled technicians and the job security the industry represents.According to data from the 2020 AutoCare FactBook, the auto care industry added approximately 41,500 jobs in 2018, and automotive repair and maintenance showed the greatest increase in average hourly wages among technician jobs from 2009 to 2018.More good news: The demand for skilled technicians continues to rise as older technicians retire.Additionally, those numbers increase as technicians move into other industries, and new positions open up.
