Salmon Sister Salmon Brother (Video)

We are grateful for the opportunity to work in collaboration with Project Watershed, Joanna Finch, Methuselah Dance Troupe and other community builders. Our good friend Paul Horgen sums it up really well: Comox Valley Project Watershed Society in collaboration with K’omoks First Nations and various concerned members of our community continue to work on the restoration and preservation of the K’omoks estuary. Joanna Finch, Methuselah Dance Troupe and Pod Creative created this video to support and honor that work. This video highlights the diversity and depth of support for our work, much of which is geared towards the protection and restoration of salmon habitat. Wide spread community support will be necessary to tackle some of our large scale restoration projects such as turning Fields Sawmill site into Kus Kus Sum Park. You can show your support for our work by posting pictures and comments to social media channels. Please use the hashtags #projectwatershed, #keepingitliving and if you are talking about Kus Kus Sum #kuskussum. You can also volunteer, donate or sign up for our newsletter. Thanks for Keeping It Living! Pieter Vorster Owner, Pod Creative View the video on Project Watershed's...

Do they still work? The focus on keyword-based search engine optimization(SEO) is shifting.   Keywords were everything to an SEO campaign; Google collected data about a site solely based on the keywords that were present on its pages and in its links, and companies could measure their success based on how they ranked for their target keywords. It was a simple, one-to-one relationship that made it easy for almost anybody to start stuffing and ranking.  But the relationship between keywords and search ranking has become much more complex.     Experience vs. Words Essentially, Google is looking to see if your site relates experience rather than pumping a site full of keywords.  Google wants to see how many people visit your site and for how long they stay.  Let’s say your website is a kitchen.  When you walk into the kitchen you want to smell freshly baked cookies and taste them, you don’t want to see the...
