  37. Alt text here
  38. Alt text is used in a few ways: • It is used as an alternative to the image if the image is not loaded for some reason. • It is used by screen readers, for accessibility. • It can provide additional context for the image.
  39. It’s also used by search engines so that they can figure out what the image is. In addition, search engines understand what it is from context and file name. Alt text is still the most important image ranking factor, however.
  40. Use relevant keywords in a sentence in your alt text but, as with everything, do not stuff key phrases.
  41. 1 Balance Frugal and Opulent Well-known factors that will almost always affect the atmosphere of your event include: •Venue choice •Music selection •Dress code But there are other, less well-known factors that can have an impact. While these are not as well-known, soWe hope you find these eleven tips helpful and informative, but there’s a lot more that goes into a good corporate event than simply ensuring that every guest’s gift bag is full. With that in mind, we’ve put together a short free guide to planning, organizing, and running your next corporate event. Begin planning today. Your Complete Corporate Event USE BULLET POINTS
  42. Sometimes, it makes more sense to describe your product or service in paragraphical form. By crafting longer-form content, you can explain the nuances of your offering for those who are doing deep research. But we know that some people will “skim” at a higher level, trying to get to the key points.
  43. • Bullets are great for short, concise points. • Search engines pay attention to bullet points; they like that they break up content. • Don’t structure everything in bullet points, though; if everything on your page is “special”, nothing is differentiated.
  44. GET IT NOW we’ve put together a short free guide to planning, organizing, an running your next corporate event. Begin planning today. Your Complete Corporate Event Planning Guide INCLUDE A CALL-TO-ACTION
  45. This should be a “next step” for your readers. It should be a continuation of the topic and related to it, but prompt a more direct action. The destination isn’t necessarily continued high- level research; it’s more actionable.
  46. • Keep content focused and succinct • You get one H1 per page • Use imagery strategically And, while we're on the topic of SEO, links and search engine optimization, you may want to pick up our Local SEO checklist. DOWNLOAD BOTH LINKS POINT TO THE SAME LANDING PAGE Local SEO Checklist
  47. All links on the page — especially the CTA links — should be immediately relevant to the page topic.
  48. There are many reasons your plumbing may not be performing as well as it should. Sometimes, you’ll figure it out very quickly by turning a valve or using a liquid drain cleaner. Other times, it’s best to call the professionals. But it’s possible to avert many of these major problems entirely with regular maintenance that you can do at home, and with occasional checkups from trade-certified plumbers. Whether it’s us you call or someone else — though we hope it’s us, of course — regular maintenance and upkeep is your key to avoiding everything from minor inconveniences to major catastrophes.
