Preserve videotape memories by transferring to DVD and making copies to share with family and friends.

Preserve videotape memories by transferring to DVD is an ideal way to share those memories with family and friends. What a great birthday, anniversary and Christmas gift. This is one gift you can not find in a store. Heck, it is right there in your closet, under the TV or stored in a box somewhere.
At DW Video we can get up to 2 hours onto a DVD.

Unlike some box stores we can combine multiple tapes onto one DVD. The key is as long as the time does not exceed two hours in length. We know people do not always fill up the videotape. For example, one time I had a lady bring in well over one hundred videotapes – VHS, VHS-C and Mini-DV. There was anywhere from 2 minutes to 4 hours on each tape. NOTE: Four hours meant it was not recorded in the 2-hour mode. These had to be put on two separate DVDs. Remember, only two hours per DVD. Back to the story…. She had every tape numbered in the order she wanted. Each tape was put on as to maximize the two hour DVD. Meaning some tapes had three, four sometimes up to six tapes on one DVD. The first two tapes are at $25.00. The base price for our Video to DVD Transfer. Then $5 per additional tape. The project of over 100 DVD’s made 30-40 DVD’s.

WordPress Blogging for SEO

When I began writing a blog my goal was WordPress Blogging for SEO.   Using the blog for a couple reasons.  One to share how media works by sharing what we have done for others.  Second, to help with my Search Engine Optimization (SEO).  Blogging is about content.  I noticed when using my WordPress SEO by Yost, one of the analysis items was to write a 300 word blog.  If not this is what I would get: “There are 65 words contained in the body copy. This is far too low and should be increased.”

I then went out to find out why.  Came across a blog from Risdall, “Ideal content length is a reoccurring debate in the online marketing community, but it turns out that Google does not have a minimum word count for indexing.  A 299-word blog post can do as well as a 301-word post. Even 150 words suffice in some cases.”  You see it is all about content and how you use it.”

According to Google, ““One of the most important steps in improving your site’s ranking in Google search results is to ensure that it contains plenty of rich information that includes relevant keywords, used appropriately, that indicate the subject matter of your content.”

WordPress Blogging for SEO should be part of your ‘do it yourself’ marketing plan. The more you blog, the more new content helps your site.  How often should you blog?  From my research I found arguments of daily or multiple times a day, to a few times a week.  Successful bloggers are doing it both way.

Regular posting on your blog puts you and your brand in front of people.  Infrequent posting can lead to readers feeling disconnected, and to even forget who you are completely.  Look at what will help your customers and then provide them the information they need.  Misconceptions for blogging.

Benefits WordPress Websites

benefits wordpress websiteThere are many benefits WordPress Websites offer, from the ease to maintain, consistency of all pages, Google finds it inviting (which means SEO friendly), mobile friendly and allows you to share your expertise with its on board blogging platform.

Like with everything in life there are some issues.  WordPress has some bugs as well.  According to Here Next Year dot com, “Plugin updates and WordPress software version upgrades can sometimes be a problem. For most, it’s just a click of a button and everything is fine. For some, they’ll click an update or upgrade link and all of a sudden they have a blank screen displaying on their website. Like with any cms product that uses a database to push content to be viewed, eventually there will come a time when you need to get some technical help even if for something as simple as upgrading plugins. The key is to learn how to backup your files and database, then do the upgrade or updates, and be able to revert back to the backed-up version if you need to. And, by all means, make sure your website manager knows to do that too before just updating or upgrading out of the blue.”

Backing up your website is a good practice no matter what platform you are using. Backing up your website is like backing up your computer – needs to be done.
