1 The page Site optimization A page is only optimized for: One expression – How the wiring regulations will affect you One keyword – wiring One topic – « wiring regulations » One language – English One domain – when linking to a page always link to the one consistent link eg. http://www.voltimum.co.uk/news/10304/infopro.profnews.voltimum/Q---A-of-the- Day---How-long-to-install-cable-ladder-systems-.html http://www.voltimum.co.uk/news/10304/infopro.profnews.voltimum/Q---A-of-the- Day---How-long-to-install-cable-ladder-systems-.html Avoid: Mixing different languages on the same domain Having the same content different domains Fundamental Use a domain name which is adapted to local search ( suffix, domain name wording…) 1
2 The page Site optimization Optimize links reminding the article’s title: http://www.voltimum.co.uk/news/9906/infopro.whatsnew.brand/More-than-just-terminals---Weidmuller-wows-at- Drives-and-Controls-2008.html 2 News title is highlighted (H1 tags or bold) Short description summarizing the content of the article Page title recalls the title of the article and the site name Show links with same topic
3 The page - Crawlers Site optimization 3 What are crawlers (or spiders or bots) ? They are the tools used by search engine to visit, scan and select pages to be indexed The indexed pages are then stored on servers The indexed pages are the pages which are scanned when the user enters a key word or expression in the Search engine These pages will be displayed in their most recent version (the one which was stored when the crawler last visited it)
4 The page - metatags Site optimization 4 What are metatags? This is the information which is only seen by the crawler Describing the page topic content To be carefully selected and filled in the pages
5 The page / article title Site optimization How to chose a good page / article title? Attract the user interest Write a sentence Ask a question Be concise Chose the best keywords Select the words used by professionals Use only the most searched ones Make sure the keywords are adapted to the target group(s) 5

7 Links and the description within a link Site optimization How to do a good link ? Have a link which is optimized for the page Ex: www.mysite.com/news/trip-morocco.html The link’s text must contain: A reminder of the topic The page’s keywords. 7 The link is not optimized. It should be: www.megger.com/uk/earth testingproducts.hmtl

16 The Project I want to use 15 days of my annual holiday allowance to travel to Central America to volunteer on a building site to help build a community for the Lenca people in La Esperanza, Honduras.
17 The Travel Organization i-to-i is a travel company that works with charitable organizations to arrange volunteer holidays for those interested in making positive changes during their holidays. Volunteer options include everything from teaching children to conservation to building homes. With my ties to the building industry, I feel as though an opportunity to volunteer as a builder would be the most fulfilling experience for me. Link to i-to-i building volunteer webpage: http://www.i-to- i.com/volunteer-projects/build-homes- in-honduras.htmlhttp://www.i-to- i.com/volunteer-projects/build-homes- in-honduras.html
18 The Community Aid Organisation i-to-i Honduras works alongside IHNFA which is a community aid organisation that aims to help improve the situation of impoverished children. Charity website: http://www.ihnfa.hn/http://www.ihnfa.hn/
19 The Volunteer Experience I would be placed in a homestay in La Esperanza, Honduras with the Lenca people. I would travel each morning by bus to the nearby community of Chiligatoro. Here I would assist in the building of a simple home. This project would have me work as a building volunteer for 10 days.
20 Spreading the word… and photos… and film I would like to treat this as more than just a volunteer project, but as a journalism one as well. Set up on Blogger (www.blogger.com), you will be able to access my latest daily blogs, profile, photos, video and pledge area.www.blogger.com i-to-i have agreed to post my work on their website, which will mention Voltimum and the project’s supporters. I would also like Voltimum to use some of this material – Voltimum “Out and About” volunteer work. Donated items will be photographed with the community – available for free to donors for their own PR purposes
21 Frankie’s Building Volunteer Adventure - The blog spot so far… Blogger area will be fully up and running very shortly Right now you can read an intro about the project as well as my personal profile Along the right hand side 3 more areas will be created – video area (YouTube), photo gallery (Flicker) and the official ‘Pledge Page’ where you can link to PayPal http://frankiethebuilder.blogsp ot.com/ http://frankiethebuilder.blogsp ot.com/
22 The Pledge Page The pledge area will allow givers to donate items (selected from the list) and/or money The 2 checked pieces of luggage allowed to be transported will be donated items only (with my carry-on acting as my personal luggage…yes, I can travel lightly!) Money transactions can be either through PayPal (set up and linked to through my blog area) or cheque. Receipts will be issued, but due to the fact that I am not a registered charity (although I will be working alongside one), donors will not be given a “Charitable Tax Break” All funds spent will be well documented and available to view online Photographs will be taken of your donated items along with items purchased in Honduras with your money http://www.voltimum.info/gb/pledge/ http://www.voltimum.info/gb/pledge/
23 Fundraising The building project will require fundraising and donations from Voltimum partners along with personal friends and family. Funds Needed: Return flight: approx £800 (London – Honduras, Costa Rica – London) i-to-i Volunteer Experience: £480 Food and extras: £10/day x 12 days (10 days work and 2 days travel) = £120 Travel Insurance Backpack Building Gear (work boots, gloves, etc) Vaccinations Handy cam (which will then handed over to Voltimum for future projects) ***extra funds will be brought over and used to buy much needed items for the community from their Sunday market (and therefore putting money back into the community). Anything left over from that will be put into a community fund for future community needs and donated to the i-to-i Foundation ***all funds raised will be documented along with where and how the money is spent
