Wheres My Backpack/Travel Theme: Winter

Winter mmm…

It’s not for fun that leaves fall from deciduous trees to survive the winter.
Winter can be harsh, not for fun the log store is bursting to breaking; larders stocked.
Birds raid hedgerows for berries, while others head for warmer climes.
Squirrels bury seeds in store, wild ponies and hill sheep put on warm coats and foxes change colour; seas freeze.

Winter is long and its not for fun that hatches are battened down against the chill winds from the north east,
animals bury themselves under cover, their metabolism slowed to tick-over as sleep conserves energy.

Yesterday on neighbouring Bredon Hill, I walk in a stiff freezing wind that sweeps across the slopes, light wind-blown snow gathers in the lee of stone walls, stands of Scots Pine hold firm. Sheep look startled at my approach and dogs bark at Dial Farm as evening approaches.

Today is mid-winter.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
