The Stern Report about economy and global warming has just been
releases. It describes the consequences of CO2 emissions if the
World is continuing without proper international management.

These matters will influence us all and give challenges and
opportunities - for publisher, picture researchers and stock photo
providers as well.

The study lead by Sir Nicholas Stern is the first major contribution
to the global warming debate by an economist, rather than an
environmental scientist. It is an in-depth study everybody should take
seriously. Global warming could have a disastrous effect on the World's
economy, shrinking it by 20%.

The Stern Review forecasts that 1% of global gross domestic product (GDP)
must be spent on tackling climate change immediately.

It warns that if no action is taken:

- Floods from rising sea levels could displace up to 100 million people

- Melting glaciers could cause water shortages for 1 in 6 of the
world's population

- Wildlife will be harmed; at worst up to 40% of species could become

- Droughts may create tens or even hundreds of millions of "climate refugees"

BBC News gives a good introduction to the Stern Report about the economic
consequences of global warming at

This issue of Stock Photo News looks at some of the more or less obvious
consequences for the market of stock photography, including the coming
needs of pictures and our working conditions in general.

What can we expect - as a consequence of increased global
warming and the forced actions it might imply? The later the
proper actions are in place the more forced they will become
and the more tuff they will tend to be for everybody as
described in the Stern Report.

Higher demand for
Books and articles describing and analyzing consequences of
global warming and the measures taken to combat them
- for the general public,
- for business managers and
- for education on most levels.

Higher demand for stock photos and news photography documenting
global warming and the consequences for humans, economy, wildlife
and the local weather.
E.g. Lots of construction work will take place to avoid the
disastrous consequences of rising sea water, like building dikes,
providing pumping stations, move local populations to new
settlements etc.

Higher demand for pictures of alternative energy sources, like
wind mills, bio ethanol production, wave energy plants, hydro
electric power stations.

Higher demand for pictures of reforestations and people involved
in such actions.

Higher demand for pictures showing NGO actions and local activists
that suffer from effects of global warming.

Increased focus on gas consumption of different models of cars.

Restrictions on use of flying and of driving, at least increased
taxation on consumption of fossil fuels.

Increased focus in general on the linkage between economy and global

We can expect a public interest in features that reveal the effect
of the energy lobby. An 'energy lobby' has been instrumental in
some countries to spread mistrust about the documentation of the
effects of global warming. The big energy companies have provided
huge sums for campaigns and paid so-called experts to stand up and
deliver testimonials against the issue of global warming.
In Washington the car and energy lobbies are some of the most powerful.

Global warming and the issues around it will definitely provide the
marked situation for stock photography and marketing with lots of
new challenges and opportunities. - Many of which we even can't dream
about at the moment.

The length of search phrases continues to grow. Back when the Internet was
just an upstart, single keywords were the only thing you needed. But in
recent years we've seen the number of words used in search phrases triple
and quadruple. Rather than a single keyword, searchers who live in
countries where English is the primary language are now using three- and
four-word phrases as a standard, according to Web analytics company

While the worldwide average is two words per search phrase, the USA, Canada,
the United Kingdom and Australia all show that searchers prefer the use of
three- or four-word terms. What does this mean from a copywriting
standpoint? Writing with a single keyword in mind is relatively easy.
Using two-word terms is a bit more of a challenge. But when you get to
three- and four-word phrases, your risk of sounding stiff and awkward
increases substantially.

Why Longer Phrases?

Longer search phrases are the natural progression of the Internet population
boom. As more and more information is placed online, it becomes
increasingly difficult to find exactly what you're looking for. When there
were only a few thousand sites, entering the word "marketing" into a search
engine would bring up a handful of sites for you to choose from.

Now, however, you find hundreds of thousands of sites dealing with
everything from marketing plans to marketing jobs to university curriculums
for marketing degrees. The natural action for copywriters is to follow the
search trend of the target audience and use the keyphrases that they use.

That leads us back to our original question. how?

Tips for Writing with Keyphrases

The biggest mistake I find search engine optimization (SEO) copywriters
making is attempting to substitute a generic term for a specific keyphrase.
For example:

At our Mexico cruise vacation site we offer the best rates on Mexico cruise
vacation packages to the most exciting Mexico cruise vacation destinations.
Visit our Mexico cruise vacation specials page for deep discounts today!


Welcome to our Chicago web design firm site. If you're looking for
innovative and creative Chicago web design firm, you've come to the right
place. No other Chicago web design firm has the talent or technological
skills to develop the type of high-end sites we do. When you're ready for a
truly professional Chicago web design firm, contact us today.

Oh please! My 10-year-old nephew could write better copy than that. When
you substitute generic terms (in this case: site, packages, vacation
destinations, vacation specials, etc.) with the specific search phrase, you
get a bunch of repetitive, awkward babble. The longer the keyphrases are,
the more clunky the copy will sound.

The best advice I can give is to break up some of the mentions of longer
keyphrases. Yes, you do need to keep the words of the phrase in the same
order most of the time. However, by using punctuation and other elements you
can still make the phrase appear less obtrusive.

For example, let's look at our Mexico cruise vacation site again. Rather
than using that bunch of fluff written above, try this instead:

Long stretches of sunny beaches, delightful fiestas filled with lively bands
and some of the most delicious fresh seafood you've ever tasted. Where can
you find it? In Mexico! Cruise vacation destinations from Cancun to Cozumel
offer some of the most exciting adventures and beautiful scenery found in
Mexico. Cruise vacation specials make these remarkable getaways even more
affordable than you might think - etc., etc.

Do you see what was done? Using punctuation, the phrase "Mexico cruise
vacation" was broken up between sentences. Because the search engines all
but ignore punctuation, they see the phrase as one term. However, the site
visitor doesn't. They don't notice that the phrase is being repeated
because it spans two sentences.

If the trend continues as it has in the past, search phrases will continue
to get even longer in the not-so-distant future. However, when you get
creative with keyphrase use in your copy, you'll find longer search terms
are not a problem to work with.

By Brad Callen

In the previous issue of Stock Photo News (no. 22 )

Brad Callen introduced a "refresher" quiz about your knowledge of
fundamental importance for your skills to optimize your website.
Brad Callen is a professional SEO (search engine optimizing) expert
I trust very much - I try to follow his advice when applicapable.

In this issue of SPN Brad Callen takes us to the next level by
discussing the 20 questions as well as their answers in detail.

Keep your eyes open - this is very important knowledge.

>>> Onpage Optimization

1. Your website sells Green Widgets - what is the best Title tag
for your main page?

a. Get Green Widgets, Buy Green Widgets, Green Widgets, Green Widget.
b. We have Cheap Green Widgets with great prices and selection.
c. Buy Green Widgets | Discount Widgets.
d. Home |

A Title tag must be descriptive, brief and keyword rich. This
immediately rules out the first two options for this question,
which were either too full of keywords or too long without any
targeted keywords. Writing a Title tag is not an exact science -
however, keep your keyword terms limited to 2 or 3 in the Title tag,
and I always like to separate them with "|".

2. Your site map has more than 100 links to your pages. Do you:

a. Create a hierarchy of links, and split up the site map into
multiple pages.
b. Keep adding new links, no problem.
c. Add a second page to your site map and add new links to that.
d. Stop adding links to your site map completely.

Because search engines are hesitant to give any specific guidelines
on how to optimize our websites, any small detail becomes very
important. As far as sitemaps are concerned, this is an issue
where it pays to listen to the search engines, especially since
with large content sites well-designed sitemaps are a sure bet
that your site will be quickly indexed.

Google's Webmaster Guidelines clearly state that you should limit
your sitemaps to less than 100 links per page, and that it is
better to use a hierarchy that signifies the site structure and
the importance of these pages. It is good advice to follow,
especially when a search engine says that "look, this helps us
index your site better".

3. How many words should you consider writing in a page of pure
content (such as an article, a blog post or a product review)?

a. 100-200
b. 500-800
c. 200-400
d. 800+

While there is no set length of pages that works best in search
engines (ecommerce stores have little content and still rank high,
while many pages ranking high have 1000+ words as a minimum), but
if you are going towards publishing quality content (either
through blogs or articles), then the 500 to 800 word count is a
good range for the following reasons:

Gives you enough room to discuss one focused topic in detail.
Forces you to keep it interesting and relevant.
More content = better contextual advertising - this limit gives
you targeted ads for your article quite easily (whereas a small
word count may result in generic, site-specific ads).
Since you cannot cover more than one main idea in such a short
range, you must create separate content pages for different ideas
- giving you more opportunities to create fresh content (remember
to always "drill down" in your content writing and differentiate
multiple aspects of the same topic).

4. What is the optimum keyword density you should aim for?

a. 2%-5%.
b. Keep the content normal, but stuff the page with hidden text
in alt tags, meta tags and "white-on-white" text to maximize
keyword density.
c. As much as possible, while keeping the content human-readable.
d. Forget keyword density - search engines pay very little attention
to it any more. Just focus on writing content that people will want
to link to.

Keyword density has been abused since before Google came out with
their PageRank algorithm in 1998. Keeping that in mind, search
engines do not pay much attention to pure keyword density. What
they do pay attention to is relevant on-page factors such as page
structure, navigation, title tags and advanced topics such as term
weight and c-indices. However, all this pales in comparison to the
off-page factors (linking strategy), especially in Google. Yahoo
seems to give more weight than Google to on-page factors, but even
then keyword density is not very high on the list.

5. What should you put inside meta tags?

a. Put your full keyword list in the meta keywords tag, and put
your most important keywords in the meta description tag.
b. Ignore the meta tags - search engines don't use them.
c. Write a short description of your website in the meta description
tag, and put your most important keywords in the meta keywords tag.
d. Put your most important keywords in the meta keywords tag and
don't use a meta description tag.

Meta tags, like keyword density, are easily abused and misused.
Because of this, search engines are very wary of trusting any
information put in them. However since meta tags are essentially
describing what the page is about, you should use them to briefly
describe each page. Note that sometimes your meta description might
be used to describe your site in search engine results, and that
any heavy optimization of these tags may trip the spam filters in
search engines. Use them, but lightly, and don't depend on them
as they have limited use.

6. For optimization purposes, how should you use images on your

a. Use the alt tag to accurately describe the each image, and
include descriptive content around each image.
b. Put your most important keyword in an alt tags followed by
the word "graphic".
c. Just use them wherever it is necessary from an aesthetic
perspective, without regard for alt tags because they aren't
really that important.
d. Use alt tags to "hide" your full keyword list so you can
increase your page's keyword density.

At the very least, images should contain alt tags with one or
two keywords describing that image, and you should try surrounding
that image with relevant text. If the image is not used in context
(i.e. it is not part of a content page or an article), you should
add a couple of lines below the image describing it. In essence,
what you would do if you were caring for people whose browsers
disabled images and those who wanted some details about the images.

7. Which style tag is preferred by the W3C for emphasizing
important text?

a. <b>
b. <strong>
c. <heavy>
d. <bold>

This is one most people trip out on. The <b> tag is commonly used
for style purposes (to make text go bold), and this was inadvertently
carried over in SEO circles when people wanted to emphasize certain
sections of their content. However, the W3C standards advocate that
one must use the <strong> tag to emphasize important words in your
content. As for the <b> tag, W3C standards classify it as a styling
tag and actually want you to use CSS to style your content, but
that's a separate issue.

So if you're using <b> tags to emphasize important parts of your
content, stop! Use <strong> tags for keywords and key terms, and keep
the <b> tag for visual emphasis only.

>>> Link Building

8. What types of websites are most trusted by search engines
(authority sites)?

a. High PR websites.
b. .edu and .gov websites.
c. Low PR websites with lots of backlinks.
d. Medium to High PR websites with lots of backlinks from other
high ranking websites.
e. Both b and d

Authority sites are like gold on the Internet - a link from them is
better than several links from small, unknown sites. Search engines
use different criteria to establish the trustworthiness of a site,
but common elements include those websites that are official
(reduced chance of spamming and greater chance of accurate information)
sites such as .edu and .gov sites (not .org, as this extension has
been spammed and abused already) and those websites that receive a
large number of links from other high ranking and trusted sites.

Getting links from these sites is tough, but definitely a great

9. Which of these sites will provide the most valuable link?
a. A PR 7 website.
b. A PR 5 site closely related to your niche with strong backlinks
from .edu and .gov (trusted) domains.
c. A website with hundreds of pages of duplicate content that is
banned in the search engines.
d. A PR 6 website loosely related to your niche but with few 'trusted'

For a site to be valuable as a backlink, it has to fulfill the
following characteristics:

It must be trusted by the search engines - that is, it must have
backlinks of its own from trusted sites.
It must be closely related to your niche - the closer, the better.
So if you're running a soccer store, a tech site may not be the
ideal backlink but a sports site reviewing soccer products is
definitely worth going after.
It should be a clean site - without any penalties.

10. Suppose that you were offered the following 4 choices as a
link - which one would be the most valuable?

a. An optimized contextual link (a link as part of a page's content
with proper anchor text) from a closely related PR 5 site's main
page content.
b. A link on the links page of an unrelated PR 7 site - shared with
50 other links (and their two line descriptions).
c. A link on the links page of closely related PR 6 site - shared
with 20 other links.
d. A PR 6 link from a directory page with 10 other links only.

The best links are those that are contextual and contain optimized
anchor text - such an in-text link to SEO Elite from a blog post
of a leading SEO blog (e.g. seomoz or webguerrilla). Note that a
similar link from a totally unrelated site such as a real estate
portal will not carry the same value.

While directory pages and link pages carry value, these are not
as important as contextual links, mainly because contextual links
are harder to spam.

11. If you were building links for, what would
be your strategy in choosing anchor text?

a. Buy high PR links from closely related sites that offer traffic
as well as link wealth.
b. Use organic marketing tactics to encourage natural link growth
using your site's content.
c. Submit articles to article directories and link to your site's
inner pages in those articles to build 'deep' links.
d. All of the above.

This one was fairly straightforward - when building links, you
should pursue opportunities on all fronts. Don't ignore developing
your site's content and focus all your attention on buying links!
Instead, balance your link building efforts and divide equal time
for each of these activities.

12. Which of these four is the most important in assessing a link?

a. The anchor text.
b. The PR of the page you're getting the links from.
c. The number of outgoing links on the link page.
d. The title tag of the link page.

All four factors are important, but apart from anchor text, the other
three are also dependent on other factors that may or may not exist
in your favor. For example, the PR of the page you're getting links
from is meaningless if the website is in a totally different niche
than yours. Similarly, the title tag of the link page may be just
[home], but if the link is contextual and if the anchor text is
optimized, it's still a valuable link (where as the reverse -
good title tag, bad anchor text - will not be true.

The number of outgoing links is only to be concerned about because
it might show the search engine that you are situated on a link
list page, which they may or may not penalize the link for.
However, a good content page (like on a blog) may contain 30+ outgoing
links - yet with optimized anchor text and placed in proper context,
the link is suddenly very valuable.

13. How many links should you get for your site in the first 6
months (on average)?

a. 50-70 links a month.
b. 100+ links a month.
c. As many quality links as you can.
d. 25-40 a month.

While the Google Sandbox is not a myth (nor is it as strictly defined
as some people might say it is), there are no penalties for building
too many links. In fact, the 'pace' at which you build your links
only becomes suspicious if it is unnatural - for example, if you
suddenly get 100+ links to your website in 2 weeks that are from a
link network (assuming this link network can be detected by the search
engine) and you have made little or no addition to your site content,
this would constitute as suspicious, unnatural link building.

On the other hand, if you're continually adding content and getting deep
links (through article submissions as well as through your link building
efforts), you may get 300+ links in a week (like seomoz did for its ranking
factors list) and the search engine will recognize these as natural -
and something viral like this can even propel your site out of the Sandbox.

>>> General SEO

14. What does PageRank technically measure?

a. The linking power carried by a particular link.
b. How many external, inbound links point to a particular page.
c. The number and quality of the links pointing to a particular page.
d. Your ranking position in the search engines.

PageRank is not link popularity (number of inbound links) or link weight
(the linking power carried by a particular page) - in fact, it is a
combination of both as well as several different factors.

However, your search engine rankings are not determined exclusively via
PageRank - hundreds of other factors, including relevancy of links,
anchor text and other off-page and on-page factors come into play as well.
PageRank is just a measure, and as a measure its value has been steadily
declining - something claimed by Google as well.

15. What does the term "Sandbox" describe in reference to Google's SERPs?

a. The ranking factors affecting all new websites that are targeting highly
competitive keywords before targeting less competitive keywords.
b. Google's system for penalizing sites exhibiting an overly-optimizing
back-link structure.
c. Google's penalty for building too many links too quickly.
d. Google's play area for their staff during lunch break.

The Sandbox is a series of filters applied to all new websites as they
try to rank for their select search terms on Google. It does not penalize
websites for building too many links too quickly (as explained in a previous
question), although these filters do affect websites that are seemingly too
well-optimised than their niche competitors.

The best path to avoid the Sandbox (or to get out if you're stuck) is to
keep building natural links through your content and focus on your rankings
in MSN and Yahoo. If you're ranking highly in those search engines and are
constantly building contextual links, you'll be able to get out of the
Sandbox within an year.

Note: If you start with a keyword phrase that isn't very competitive and is
"less known", you WILL bypass the "sandbox" and should rank well pretty quickly.
Once you build credibility and authority/age, you can start to take on the
bigger keywords.

16. What is the best way for websites with very little content (like ecommerce stores)
rank highly for competitive product terms?

a. They have a lot of natural links (one-way, contextual) with optimal anchor
text from a wide variety of websites.
b. Their pages are stuffed with keywords and "white text".
c. They use content-generating software to spam the search engines and attain
false rankings.
d. They pay a lot of money to get high PR links.

This comes under the whole content vs. links debate: which is more important?
Search engines value both, thus the only way to rank well if you have less
of one of them is to have more of the other.

In the context of ecommerce stores, they face stiff competition from
other stores that buy high PR links to artificially inflate their rankings.
The best way to beat them is to go for contextual, one-way links from
trusted websites - this is harder and takes more time, but the benefits
include first page rankings on SERPs.

17. Which of these will NOT get your site penalized in Google?

a. Thousands of automatically-generated pages built only for the search engines.
b. Building quality links at a steady pace.
c. Scraping (stealing) content from other websites.
d. Getting links from websites that Google considers to be from a 'bad'
link neighborhood.

Using content-generating software that creates pages only for search engines
is a common spam tactic, and search engines have, in the past couple of years,
rapidly caught on to this approach and will penalize it severely.
Similarly, stealing content from other sites is not that hard to detect
(they measure the similarity of content and match it with which page was
indexed first).

Links from a website that is already penalized by Google can get your website
penalized - this is not a guarantee, but if your website is getting several
links from banned sites AND there is any spam-like activity on your website
(like stuffing keywords into your meta keywords tag, or overoptimised title
tags), then you may get penalized as well.

18. Which of these five methods will NOT give you an accurate estimate of
the search demand in a niche?

a. Overture search term figures
b. numbers

Overture and WordTracker report numbers based on an analysis of a subset of
search engine data. Nichebot provides data from the above two services,
while Statcounter is used to monitor site traffic.

19. When designing the site structure of a website, which of the following
statements is NOT a good idea?

a. Make a site map that points to each page on the site.
b. Attempt to make all pages accessible from the home page by at most 3 clicks.
c. Link all of your inner pages to all of your other websites.
d. Create a category structure that goes from broad to narrow.

Site-wide links should be reserved for the important internal pages of your own
website (such as the home page, the contact page and main category pages).
This way, you will be transferring maximum link weight back to the key pages
of your website so that they can rank higher. BY linking all pages on 1 of
your websites, to your other website, the search engines will quickly see
that you are trying to manipulate their results and will more than likely
penalize you accordingly.

20. Which is the best method of getting traffic to your site?

a. Pay-per-click ads.
b. Pay for high PR links so that you get a PR yourself, which will help boost
your own search engine rankings.
c. Submit your website to search engines and popular directories, and focus
on creating content.
d. Create quality content that people in your niche would want to link to,
and then promote that content through article syndication, blogs and forums.
e. All of the above.

Traffic building methods, like link building, should never be restricted to
one form of traffic (because when that dries up, you'll be caught with your
proverbial pants down). If you sell products, then PPC ads are a great tool
for driving targeted traffic. On the other hand, paying for "traffic" links
on related websites will do wonders as well. In addition, search engine
traffic procured through link building and creating quality content will
assure that you have a steady stream of free traffic to rely upon.

discussion in this lesson. Remember, the only way to succeed at SEO is

Then the Controlled Vocabulary by David Riecks might be the
solution to your problems:



In last SPN I could mention our hope for a soon arriving 5th
grandchild - and she was born the 26. September in beautiful
shape with a big black hair. The little girl with the name Emma
and her mother are all well and her father has taken up the optional
Danish 2 weeks of birth leave to support the happy family.

Happiness and sorrow move up and down in real life and as
happy the birth was for the whole family, as much sorrow the
passing away of my mother in law has generated for 10 days ago.

The death of a 82 years old shouldn't shake a family, but for all
