In celebration honouring Ludwig Van Beethoven’s 250th birth, CHORUS HAMILTON, one of Hamilton’s finest choral ensembles, is delighted to present Beethoven’s Mass in C Major and his Piano Concerto #4, both with chamber orchestra, on Sunday, March 8, 3:00 p.m. at St. Paul’s United Church, 29 Park Street West, Dundas, Ontario.

The first of Beethoven’s two masses opens up new worlds of expression for the liturgical texts of the Mass which are expressly modern and point towards the future. It paves a way to an hitherto unknown, contemporary avenue to faith which today is still current.

In this most gently spoken and poetic of all his concertos, featuring Hamilton’s own Erika Reiman, Beethoven offers his most profound expression in his Piano Concerto #4.

Tickets for this concert are $30.00 general admission, those under 18 free, and can be purchased through the website at www.chorushamilton.ca, by e-mail at chorushamilton@yahoo.ca, or by contacting Joan at 905-318-9381.

Ginger St. James at Acoustic Blend Cafe

  • Date: Saturday, May 02, 2020
  • Time: 8:00 PM
  • Location: Melrose United Church

With her sultry and powerful voice, her sassy and commanding stage presence, and a repertoire that blends country, rock n’ roll and blues. Ginger St. James stands out as one of Canada’s most exciting performers.

Following the tradition of country songbirds like Loretta Lynn, Ginger writes and sings music from real experience; growing up on the family farm, being broke, having fun, and love gone wrong. Her early life in Binbrook, Ontario was heavily influenced by American southern culture, listening to country radio in the barn. Although trips with Dad to the vintage car and rockabilly shows had their impact, her signature song ‘Country Bumpkin’, proves that this gal is more HEE HAW than Happy Days.

Very simple and great explanation of what SEO is

search engine optimization is the process of optimizing your website so that your web pages appear higher in the search engine’s search results for keywords that are related to your industry. This can be a fantastic way for a business to promote their services to consumers who have a particular problem that a company in their production may be able to solve.

Google uses a trademarked algorithm which organizes its websites when searches are done. How the search engine orders the sites is by making a judgement against each website’s authority factor. The more valuable your website has with the search engine, the higher in which it will be shown.

There are two main areas of Digital Marketing Seo. They are as follows:

On Page Digital Marketing Seo On the page, Digital Marketing Seo is all the optimization that takes place with the website directly. This means ensuring code is clean and written to a high standard, all title and meta tags are fully optimized, URL and all tickets are relevant and individual web page’s load speeds are tuned to the fullest.

Another crucial element to the on-page factors is ensuring your content is unique, interesting to read and uses correct keywords and keyword density.

Offering a well-structured website which makes it easy for users to navigate easily and quickly to the product or topic of choice they require will also increase chances of visitor conversion.

Off-Page Digital Marketing Seo Off-page Digital Marketing Seo is all the optimization that happens away from the website and is by far the area of the whole Digital Marketing Seo process that adds the most value to your authority or importance factor with the website.

For the search engine to show your website in a high position, it must be sure that your organization is reputable and worth recommending its customers to.

The majority of a websites authority will come from a process known as ‘backlinking’.

This is the process of acquiring hyperlinks pointing to your website from an external site.seo company|digital marketing company in delhi|digital marketing company in noida|digital marketing company in gurgaon|ecommerce website development company in delhi|ecommerce website development company in noida|ecommerce website development company in gurgaonIt is essential that the link pointing to your website comes from a source that is relevant to the industry in which you operate.

The more authoritative the website that provides a link pointing to your website is, the more ‘link juice’ will be passed through the link. In other words, the loop gives a specific authority value to your site.

Think of the external website acting as a recommendation for your company to the search engine. The more trusted and authoritative the website that provides the link is, the more seriously google will consider the proposal.

Take Advantage of FREE keyword research from smaller agencies Smaller agencies tend to have lower overheads than larger agencies. Therefore, smaller agencies can often provide an audit of your current Digital Marketing Seo position for free.

I would encourage every business owner who is considering utilizing Digital Marketing Seo as a marketing strategy to try and obtain a free analysis of their website and backlink portfolio. It will give you a significant head start in putting together a great campaign yourself.
