3. How to Find Keyword For Event Blogging

Keyword research is an important part of a successful event blog. Because properly keyword research will do your half work. Keywords are the main words which are searched in google result.

Once you have select your event then you need to purchase a top level domain name relevant to your event. And make sure to have the keyword in the domain name. Because keyword in your domain increases the click-through rate.

After Google, algorithm update domain name does not matter a more, but it does matter. If you are on the page and off page SEO is fine then you can easily rank any domain and subdomain on google first page.

If you are doing any Indian event like Independence Day then always go with .in extension. But if you are doing an international event like Christmas then buy a domain with .com, .net extension.

6. Write Quality Content

Now comes the content part, I recommend that you always target your main keyword and create a long and quality article for event blog. You can start posting content for event blog nearly 30-40 days before the event and can easily get it ranked in Google.

Your event post covering all keywords like Independence Day images, Independence Day wishes, Independence Day quotes etc. The article should be more interesting, well researched and informative so that your visitor spend more time on your blog.

If the length of your article is more than 1000 words than writing 15 article is enough but if you have short article then write near about 35-45 articles.


7. Create Quality Backlink

Link Building is the most important part for rank your event blog on google first page. For creating instant backlink you need to find do follow and auto-approves blogs. You can comments on blogs also comments increases the chance of getting a good amount of traffic to your blogs.

You can make backlinks daily or even in a single day. Always start backlink building process after publishing five to six posts.

For creating backlink only for event blog SEO Profiler is one of the best tool and it is totally free to use. Just visit SEO Profiler website and enter your top ten competitor event blog link. Now click on link profiler < backlinks option and you will get backlink report of your competitor blog. Here you have to take only LIS green signal backlink for creating backlinks for your event blog.

Don’t create all backlink for the same keyword again and again. If you create all backlink with the same keyword then google will not rank your site. And also build some no follow backlinks too.


On PAGE :

 First You should take the domain 6 months before the event.
 Then you start posting the content, put some spurned content which is readable.
 Then Go to Keyword Planner and search for the long tail Keywords.
 Collect some long tail keywords by using Keyword planner and KWfinder.
 Because for short tail keywords, you have lots of competition and when you focus on building links and
concerning the main keyword then your doing the mistake.
 Short Tail Keywords has much competition as nowadays bloggers taking links from same and hidden PBN SEO links and ranking them in a short period.
 Even you can do it if you have enough money to experiment these factors.
 For an article, you can get more than 10-15 long tail keywords.Then sprinkle the keywords and Give interlinks for it in the first month.
 Don’t do keyword stuffing in the article.When you do it even the web page ranks temporarily. Eventually, you will lose your rankings.

OFF PAGE :

 Start Building Links from the Second month.take links from low OBL websites.
 Don’t Build 100’s of Spammy Links. Build Less Number of Quality Links.
 Anchor Texts should be optimised well in this process.Build links to the ” Long tail keywords” which you have taken.
 Take Sitewide Links,10 days before the event to sustain your rankings.
 Don’t rely on single Source. Do all type of Links: Comments, Web 2.0, Profiles, Forums et

Too Much Water Bigger Threat Than Too Little

Too Much Water Bigger Threat Than Too Little

Water is good for the body of any person and, most importantly, those involved in workouts. All the publications that have been written about water encourage people to drink more water for the proper functioning of the body. However, some British medical journals confirm that hyperhydration is a real threat for people who are involved in sports and workouts. Anyone who is used to drinking too much water stands a chance of suffering health risks as the body struggles to fight hyperhydration.

A Word From the Experts

It has been confirmed that most of the athletes who collapse due to excess heat do so because of heat stroke rather than dehydration or supplements that they buy from a reputable source like roid shop Deutschland. Even though no one is promoting drinking too little water, consuming more water than needed will have a negative effect on the body.

The author of Waterlogged, who is also an MD at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, claims that consumption of excess water by athletes is fueled by exaggerated sports drink adverts that people see on TV. He further claims that the majority of writers rarely tell people about this side of water consumption; they only mention how important it is to drink a lot of water if you are involved in sports.

Effects of Hyperhydration on the Body

Impaired physical performance – there is a significant danger for athletes who drink water at all times. A simple increase above the normal of about 2 percent will lead to impaired physical capabilities. But, how does this happen anyway? The human body has an optimal amount of water that it can consume in a given time. An ideal amount of water is important for optimal performance of the body’s cells.

Impaired mental performance – the brain will stop performing at the optimum level if the cells are bulging with water. This leads to a lack of proper thinking, which is the last thing a sports person needs. This happens at a higher level of excessive water consumption above the norm.

Coma and death – the first two signs should be a red flag that one has to stop drinking more water immediately. However, if people continue to drink water, the result will be coma or seizures and eventually death. It has been confirmed a couple of times that a sports person here or there has collapsed and died because of hyperhydration.

Possible Solutions

There is nothing better a person can do than understand the limit. This differs depending on the level of activity and ability of the body organs to assimilate the water for use. With numerous guidelines on the right daily usage of water for athletes, we cannot ignore the fact that this is just a theoretical guideline. It is important to come up with a standardized amount of water to consume that suits you without leading to the discussed challenges.

It has also been noted that the commercial sector misleads athletes in an effort to try to market products. Therefore, there should be proper regulations that companies must adhere to. Sometimes, it is important that companies tell athletes not to go overboard whether they are drinking energy drinks, which contain water, or pure water.

Simple Ways to Get Blog Post Ideas That Attract Backlinks

blog post ideas

Finding blog post ideas is a hard task. Meanwhile, it is the most crucial one. There are plenty of articles over the blog that crunches about getting blog post content ideas. But, all such fail to talk about the content ideas that get you backlinks.

Here, I am going to share a few ways to find blog post ideas that attract backlinks.

Analyzing your competitor backlinks and getting ideas for your blog posts would be an effective way. Similarly, there are loads of ways.

Before that, let us have a brief discussion about the types of content that grabs most user attention and backlinks.

Types of Blog Posts Content that Attracts the Most Backlinks

How you are presenting your content is much important as what you are writing. Depending on the content type and the media format you include, the reach will be varying. You might notice a few articles will be more popular among social networks. But, that won’t get you backlinks. Few may not get more shares but attract more backlinks.

Before creating content, you must stick on to your goal. Being said that, building backlinks is one of the significant goals of content. Below are the blog post content types that can get you more backlinks. Backlinks to a particular post not only boosts its ranking. It can bring up the ranking of all other posts too. And, you can drive massive organic traffic with better rankings.

#1 List Type Posts

The users would always love the list type of posts. Particularly, there are myths that list type of posts holding odd number does perform well. I am not sure about the logic behind it. For an instant,

  • 75+ Free Dofollow Backlink Sites
  • 15 Types of Blog Post Content
  • 11 Free online Digital Marketing Webinar Sources

Analyses are resulting in that list types of posts are the most shareable. The key factor for list type of posts being popular is; it is easily scannable. Probably the listed items will be as subheaders. People will promptly run through the entire items even they didn’t read it completely.

#2 Detailed Guides

Generally, the guiding posts and tutorials answering user’s ‘how-to’, ‘why’, ‘what’ will grab much attention. Indeed, if you guide is an ultimate one; then this will attract huge backlinks. But, your guide must be wrapping everything on the topic you are writing. Whenever people are discussing that topic in forums or anywhere over the web, they will intend to link to your guide. Referring to the below image, it’s about Neil’s beginner’s guide to internet marketing.

Detailed Guides

#3 Infographics

Infographics are good to depict any type of message. Through which you could precisely present statistical data or break down a topic into elements. These embed media formats will take your content viral among the online users.

Fortunately, if your infographics content is of high quality, then it is going to rock. Researching data to produce infographics can take time. Still, it is worth. Anyways, you have to spend thousands of dollars to create such infographics content, but you can get significant ROI. It can either be the backlinks, organic traffic, content promotion, social shares or anything.

 Infographics

#4 Discussions & Case Studies

The most common content types that get the most popular among people would be discussions. It includes surveys, case studies, etc. If you are into marketing your product or service, create a case study content. It must cover the unique strategies or features you implemented, from start to finish. Make it as a document and roll it around your target audience. But, the case study content must be genuine and claims real data.

In addition to that, interview posts and expert roundup posts can also get you credibility and attracts more backlinks. In expert roundup posts, you are accumulating multiple experts in a single place. Obviously, the participating experts by themselves will promote your content and get you tons of backlinks.

Further, let’s get into the ways to find such backlinks attracting blog post content ideas. The blog content must serve its best to the search engines as well as the users.

Every high-quality article you are publishing in your blog has an ability to boosts your other blog posts too. Internal linking has its vital role in passing link juices among these posts to build authority.

However, there are infinite numbers of resources available to generate blog post content ideas. Among which, I am going to share very few that are easy and actionable.

Let’s get started.

#1 Quora and Other Discussion Forums

Among all the discussion platforms, Quora is gaining popularity among people. Quora would be ideas mining place where you can get ideas on any topic. Moreover, you can also understand the topic that is curious among the public. Feeding the needy would be the best-ever actionable strategy that gets you success.

You can use Quora to know your target audience curiosity, need, and behavior. For an instant, refer to the below image. While searching the topic ‘SEO Trends’, you could notice the topic trendiness from the ‘Questions Stats’, and the number of answers marked. Moreover, the related question section can get you more suggestions on the same topic to write in your next blog posts.

Quora Blog Post Content Ideas

Similarly, there are thousands of forums and discussion platforms are available. But, I would prefer exploring Quora for its user engagements.

#2 Popular Search Engine Results

Google would be the typical place where people can find or get whatever they want. Then why not Google or any other search engine can help you with awesome blog posts content ideas? In the Earlier section, we have seen the types of blog posts content that attract backlinks. From the search engines results page, you can get ideas to come up with any of such content types.

You may use queries as below to find blog post content ideas for different types of blog content. Exploring ideas from various blogs can get your enormous thoughts to have your skyrocketing posts.

“Ultimate Guide” + Keyword

“List of” + Keyword

“Infographics” + keyword

“Case study” + keyword

Google Search Casestudy content

#3 Interviews and Expert Roundups

Conducting interviews and roundups can get you immense insights about a topic. As well as, read top influencer’s interviews and roundup contributions on a regular basis.

Interviewing top influencers in your niche can drive you massive organic traffic. Also, it gets you a decent volume of backlinks and social mentions. There are bloggers who include those interviews in their portfolio. From which you can gain backlinks on authority sites.

Interviews and Expert Roundups

Particularly, expert roundup posts can offer the same. Also, you can roll out polls or surveys or direct questions through email newsletter asking what your audiences are expecting from your next blog post.

You can get an infinite number of ideas. Particularly, these are the potential insights from your target users.

Using Comprehensive SEO Tools

You may use top content marketing and SEO tools like Ahrefs, BuzzSumo, SEMRush, etc. to research on the topic which you want to write about. Using such tools, you can analyze the related topic’s performance over social platforms and target audiences. How people are curious about your topic? What works well?

Depending on the analysis results, you can curate the ideas to present your blog posts. Also, you may refer to the old blog posts that perform well at that time. Study more about the topic and understand its current market standard. You may now write blog post content on that topic with the latest information and data. Undoubtedly, this will grab more users’ attention and get you the most backlinks.

Final Words

I am sure that I have missed out many informative resources to generate blog post content ideas. But these few I have shared here are the effective ways to find blog post ideas that attract backlinks and user attention.

I would suggest you maintain a file where you can keep adding your inspirations and ideas whenever you come across. While drafting new blog posts, you can refer to it.

Ultimately, every webmaster wants to offer quality content to its readers. Obviously, such high-quality content can only get you the backlinks. No one would be ready to provide backlinks if your content means nothing to their readers.

Pain Relief Medication May Be Causing More Pain Than it Cures

Pain Relief Medication

Opioid medication is a range of synthetic pain relief drugs that mirrors the effects of its natural counterpart which is made in the human body. Opioids induce calm states, relaxed breathing, and euphoria. The natural pain relievers are not as effective in relieving excessive, prolonged and chronic pain, which explains why opioids are popular and still in use today.

Since they release endorphins, opioids have been commonly abused for pleasure. Many people misuse opioids by crushing them into powder, which is then snorted or injected. They have also been misused through shared prescriptions.

These pain relievers are highly addictive. Once a person engages in repeated opioid use, their body stops producing its own natural pain relief variant. When this happens, the user becomes completely dependent on the synthetic version for all pain. In many cases, people do not necessarily even need the drug for pain relief.

Like other drugs, prolonged use causes the user to develop rising tolerance levels. Over time, an opioid-dependent person will need to use more of the drug in order to achieve the effect they desire. This creates a real risk of overdose, despite the legal nature of these drugs. In order to overcome this, the dependent will need to use stronger opioids. The result is an infinite rabbit hole of widespread drug dependence which slowly develops into an addiction for a large percentage of the population.

These medications may be a cause for concern, but they still have an important part to play in modern medicine. When used as directed, and for short-term periods, opioids have provided pain relief and pain management for many people. They alleviate severe post-surgery pain, as well as that from chronic conditions such as cancer.

Is the risk worth the reward?

What are the benefits of opioid medication?

Opioids are prescribed to address severe and persistent pain. They are effective at pain relief and have been proven to provide a real analgesic effect. Unlike other pain relief options which mask the unpleasantness or counteract the effects, opioids relieve pain. Opioids offer a reduction of pain, as well as reducing any likelihood of pain-related disability.

Opioids are effective for all types of pain. They offer pain relief for non-malignant chronic pain, tissue disorders and inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, and other musculoskeletal diseases. The range covered by opioids is so big that few singular alternatives could suffice should they be eradicated.

What are the risks associated with opioid medication?

Opioids can be lethal when taken without proper guidance and recommendation by a physician. They have been responsible for an increase in the number of drug-related deaths, and have already become the leading cause of death where drugs are involved.

Even though they relieve pain, opioids create dependence on their users. They have resulted in misuse and overall dependence on the drugs in a large number of people. The side effects of oxycontin, morphine, codeine, and other opioids include a tendency for addiction in cases of prolonged use.

Dependence on pain-relieving opioids results in the development of tolerance, which causes people to take higher quantities of the drugs in order to achieve their desired effects. The consequence of this has been an increase in the number of opioid-related overdose cases.

The dependence on the pain relievers has also caused an increase in the average potency of available variants of the drug. New and stronger opioids are being developed to cure the increased levels of tolerance. These drugs increase the options available to opioid dependents and progressively make the problem difficult to address.

Opioids have contributed to the expansion of the drug menace. Opioid addicts are more likely to engage in drugs such as heroin in order to satisfy their addiction. They are also more likely to look for a black market and over the counter alternatives.

More parents are using and are addicted to pain relief medication. Due to this dependency, many children are being born with drug-related birth defects, such as lower social engagement ability and physical impairment. Cases of diseases like the Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome are on the rise, with the parents’ drug dependence transmitted to them.

Parents are more likely to neglect and abandon their children because of dependence on these drugs. Opioids are robbing children of the home environment which is important to their growth. In the short term, the child may be exposed to physical injury. In the long term, the child could suffer emotional damage.

Opioid use may result in risky and impulsive activity. Due to the relative difficulty in acquiring the drugs, adolescents and young people may engage in violence, robbery, and impulsive sexual activity in order to acquire the drugs or similar alternatives. The rising rate of HIV/AIDS amongst young addicted people highlights the increased tendency for risky behavior.

At work, drug dependency has kept people out of employment, with the size of the workforce expressed as shrinking. Addiction to pain-relieving drugs has rendered many people ineligible for employment in workplaces with no tolerance for drugs.

Can Middle Ground Be Reached?

While opioids may be considered necessary, they have contributed to addiction, increased crime rates, increased cases of HIV/AIDS, the likelihood of parental negligence and increased cases of overdose. Stronger types of the medication are being made regularly to address the high levels of tolerance.

Measures such as increased difficulty in getting these drugs have been put in place. However, the presence of the black market and falsified prescriptions alternatives has undermined it. Even though access is restricted, people can still find the medication. Any attempt to address this problem through this approach must completely deny unauthorized access to opioids.

Final Words

Pain relief medicine is causing more pain than relief. The addictive opioids that are used to relieve pain have resulted in a range of problems which carry trickle-down effects. Safer methods of pain relief should be embraced in order to fix a problem that seems to grow by the day. In cases where addiction already exists, treatment and counseling can be offered in order to nip the blooming problem before it reaches uncontrollable levels.
