Big Brother StarGame quickie

Published

on

Diamond PlatnumzHere is a quick update on what is happening inside the Big Brother StarGame houses and highlights of what is yet t come:

DOWNVILLE

Punishment – Needle in the haystack: While the Downville Housemates were working on their morning Task, Big Brother called for all of them to report to the lounge. Big Brother noticed that some Housemates had not been wearing their microphones correctly, or not wearing them at all. Seydou has been a repeat offender and therefore received his punishment. With a haystack placed in the garden, he needed to sift through it and find a needle. Once found, he had to take it to the Diary Room and go back outside where he had to clean up the hay completely. Eve was warned about wearing a hat in the house.

Three Smoke in the House: It seems as though the Downville Diners don’t learn. Not long after Big Brother punished Seydou for microphone infringement by forcing him to find a needle in a haystack, some of them decided to smoke in the toilet. Big Brother’s House Rules state clearly that smoking in the House is prohibited but Head of House Keagan, Alex and Wati decided to act clever and hide in the toilet to steal a smoke.

 

UPVILLE

Roki Calls Upville to Order: Roki came down hard on the Upville housemates for their lack of commitment to the Street and Afro Art Fusion Task. He gave Upville a complete lecture about how they were in denial that they had a problem. “Our problem is that we’ve won for two weeks and there’s no commitment,” Roki said. He added that the Housemates were not putting in as much effort as they did in during Endurance Week.

Meanwhile, one of the Upville housemates is on the chopping block after the very first nominations in the in the house. Mampi, Maneta and Lady May are facing possible eviction and viewers will have to wait until Sunday to see who Africa has voted for to stay on in the house and who is going home.

 

EVICTION SHOW – 27 May 2012

Bongo Flava artiste, Naseeb Abdul alias Diamond Platnumz will be performing at the Live Eviction Show on Sunday May 27 at 20:00 CAT. Known as the king of Bongo Flava, Diamond became the first Tanzanian artist to be nominated for the MTV African Music Awards (MAMA) Brand New Act Award in 2010. Diamond Platnumz also boasts of a series of Tanzania’s Kilimanjaro Music Awards and has been a sensation among both young and old fans.

Colors

With so many important details to consider from your venue to the dress, from your guest list to the photographer – the best way to start planning your wedding is by making a list of your priorities.

What do you want most? Is it an intimate gathering with close friends and family members? Do you want an extravagant celebration for all of your favorite people? Or do you want a more relaxed event that combines family and friends with some of the most important people in your life?

Once you’ve gotten a handle on your priorities, it’s time to think about the details. Here are some things that are worth considering:DesertStyleShootSUBM 60 of 200 small 683x1024 1

Book your venue

If you have your heart set on a specific venue, be sure to contact them well in advance – especially during peak wedding season. Many venues book up quickly. There are some instances where you may lose the opportunity if you wait too long.

Choose wedding events

Whenever you have settled on a tight spending plan, date, and scene for your wedding, the time has come to pick your marriage party. Ten months out from the much anticipated day is the ideal chance to go with this choice because your marriage party will actually want to help and support you in the preparation of the remainder of the wedding subtleties.

The number of attendants at your wedding party is at your discretion. However, it is customary to select those people closest to you who will be most helpful in coordinating the rest of the wedding arrangements.File Apr 21 3 16 07 PM

Plan your wedding dress

At least 10 months before the wedding, you should be shopping for an outfit to wear on your big day. This will give you time to order your outfit and get any alterations done. Remember that the people in your bridal party will need their outfits and alterations as well!

Choose your vendors

Hiring a wedding planner will make your experience more luxurious and streamlined. This will allow you to enjoy all the luxuries of a world-class resort in addition to the special moments of your wedding day.

Once you’ve selected a date, you’ll want to begin planning your dream wedding by choosing a photographer, videographer, and florist.

Print invitation cards and send them.

To ensure that your guests can attend your event, plan your wedding card design and send them save-the-date cards six months before the wedding. Your simple wedding cards should be sent out six to eight weeks before the big day, and make sure to include an RSVP date three weeks before the wedding. While having a destination wedding, you will need to give your guests even more notice and adjust your wedding timeline accordingly.

Get your wedding ring

A luxurious time to shop for wedding rings is six months before the wedding. This will provide you ample time to find the perfect ones and have them engraved if you desire.

Print wedding registry

Before you begin to print your wedding invitations, you should have completed your registry and combined it with your partner’s registry if you have separate registries.

Choose gifts

It is customary to present your attendants with gifts to show your appreciation for their love and support leading up to your wedding. Brides often choose to present these gifts during the rehearsal dinner or wedding day, but it is a good idea to have them shipped 2 months in advance of your wedding so that you can be sure that any items requiring personalization are sent ahead of time.

1 month before the wedding

A bit more breathing room. One month before the big day is crunch time. You still have some critical tasks to complete to keep your wedding timeline on track, including:

  • Practicing wedding vows
  • Checking all dresses size
  • Finalizing guest count
  • Planning seating arrangements
  • Planning entry of bride and groom.

If you’ve made it to this point, congratulations! You’ve read all of our tips and tricks for planning the perfect wedding in 2023. We hope you’ve enjoyed the journey and wish you all the best in your future wedding.

Now go on and get married!

SEO promotion of your YouTube channel. How to make it easy?

Published

on

Headless YouTuber on screen

YouTube SEO promotion is a video optimization process by which you can improve your channel’s ranking in YouTube’s organic search results. SEO for YouTube helps you optimize your video to promote it to the top positions in YouTube search queries.

The better the video and its metadata match the query, the higher it appears in the list of search results. The frequency with which videos are accessed from search results also plays a role.

When creating videos for YouTube, the main condition should be taken into account: videos should be useful and of high quality. If the content of the video does not match the title and topic, it is useless to buy YouTube views. Such a video won’t appear in search results because users won’t like it.

Why you need SEO for YouTube

SEO tools are used to boost rankings on Google search engines, blogs, and social media. The YouTube search engine selects relevant responses based on the same principles.

YouTube’s SEO promotion tools are, of course, different from those used on other resources because video hosting sites don’t have as much text.

Nevertheless, text information on YouTube is still present (in the channel title and titles, video description, tags, subtitles, etc.), which means it is acceptable for SEO optimization. Google, the search engine that owns YouTube, also considers the presence of optimized titles, tags, descriptions and subtitles in videos.

Of course, not all users find YouTube videos through search. Many of them follow links and recommendations from the video hosting site or browse the “Related Videos” section. But SEO optimization isn’t so much about users as it is about search algorithms that can position content favorably in search results for relevant queries.

Ranking factors

The following factors are important to promote videos on YouTube:

  • audience retention. This criterion reflects the percentage of users who have watched the video to the end;
  • views. This is an important criterion for optimizing videos on YouTube because users often sort videos by this parameter. Sometimes views are increased with bots, but that’s a mistake. Retention drops and YouTube does not consider the video useful, which spoils the promotion results;
  • likes and new subscribers. The role of the metric in YouTube promotion is decreasing because it is easy to cheat. Now the system takes into account the likes from users who watched the video to the end and wrote a comment, i.e. really interacted with the content. The same goes for new subscribers: they affect YouTube promotion only when they are really active;
  • shares. They affect promotion only if there is interaction on social networks and sites.

Keywords

Channel Keywords is a section where you can specify specific words that you want to promote your videos and channel. For example, if your channel is about playing computer games, you can include keywords such as Letsplay and anything related to that.

Use keywords when preparing your channel description text

It’s important to specify your channel’s keywords in the appropriate settings section. This will allow YouTube’s search algorithms to more accurately determine which third-party channels and videos of similar subject matter can be recommended for your content.

How to find out the keywords

To see third-party channel keywords, we need a special tool for YouTube that allows you to see any channel’s keywords for free. It’s called VidIQ.

  • Register an account at www.vidiq.com.

Install the vidIQ browser extension.

  • Go to YouTube and login to the extension. You will notice it, it will be displayed to the right of the video. Once authorized, it will also show stats for each video on the right.
  • After installing this plugin, go to any channel on your topic and see all the keywords used on it.

This will help you find search terms. The tool generates keywords by adding different letters and numbers before and after the search term you specify. Then we collect the relevant (appropriate) phrases and save them in notepad or excel.

Then all you have to do is to write a text with the keywords in it, place the text in the video description, it is also important that these keywords are mentioned in the video.

Promotion on YouTube

Promote your channel and video on various websites, forums and social networks. Let the widest possible audience know about you.

Use the YouTube API to create a YouTube badge and put it on your website. This way you can attract new viewers to your channel.

Allow others to embed your content to help spread your content. Every video has an embed URL. You can use it to put the video on your website. Send links to blog authors who might be interested in your content.

If your videos are about product reviews, include as much additional information as possible. Include model and brand identifiers in the tags.

Why You Should Hire Dynamic Movers in NYC?

Published

on

Picture 1 2

Are you planning to pack your belongings and leave? Are you planning to move out of NYC to the next town or even to the next state? Can you do the moving on your own? If you want a time-friendly and convenient solution, you need the help of a moving company to move your things and belongings. If you want your household items and other fragile stuff to remain intact while moving, moving companies like Dynamic Movers NYC will be of great assistance.

Before we get into why you need a moving company, you should also know why people do not consider it.

First, they do not hire a moving company because of the cost. It will take a minimum of 700 dollars before you can avail yourself of the services of a moving company if you are moving to another town. But when you are moving to a place with a longer distance, it will cost thousands. This is a huge disadvantage, but if you have prepared in advance and saved enough money, then this should not be a problem. But if you are on a tight budget, you might consider moving with the help of your loved ones.

Second, you cannot move according to your schedule. Instead, you need to wait for the company’s schedule. For example, you only decided to hire a moving company for the next day. If there are no vacancies or if it is during the peak months, it would be challenging to book one. Unlike when you are moving by yourself, you can choose to do this anytime, at your convenience.

Third, you still need to pack by yourself and make the necessary labels so that the moving company will know which items need handling with extra care. Although they offer “white glove service,” where they will do the packaging and even the labeling for you, it will be an additional cost. If you are working on a frugal budget, you cannot afford to pay for another service, right?

Now, let us get into the details of why you should hire a moving company.

First, it saves you a lot of energy and time. If you are busy with preparations and other necessary transactions, you might need their services. If multitasking is not an option for you now, then you need a moving company. Moving also involves strength, especially when lifting and transporting household items. If you are not up for that, then you should hire a moving company.

Second, if moving is for career purposes, your employer would pay the moving costs for you. You would not spend a penny.

Third, if you want to secure your things because they are expensive or have sentimental value, why is risk in moving them yourself? Hiring a moving company would ensure the safe and secure transport of your possessions. Furthermore, because of insurance, moving companies are liable and accountable for any damages to your possessions.

If you are convinced that you need the services of a moving company, there are things you need to consider when determining what you should look for in a moving company. Companies are not “one-size-fits-all.” Their services and costs differ from one company to another. The company you must choose must have open information that is accessible online. They must have complete details like a contact number, website, FMCSA number, license number, and liability insurance. Without these, it would be hard to trust the company.

Second, they must present insurance options with the right coverage. Third, they must have versatile services that work with your budget and needs. Fourth, they must be able to move things long distances (if you are moving to a faraway place). Some companies have a limited distance to cover.

These things being said, the best option for your moving needs is Dynamic Movers NYC. Look them up and book your move today!
