Dayton Development Coalition Ohio Partnership Enhances Support for WrightPatt

first_imgThe P4 Partnership Program, a collaboration among the Dayton Development Coalition, several Ohio agencies and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, has shaved operating costs for the Air Force at the same time it has improved support for the installation.The partnership brought together the Coalition, the governor’s office, the governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, Ohio Administrative Services, the Ohio Board of Regents, the Ohio Department of Veteran’s Affairs, JobsOhio and Sinclair Community College (SCC). The partners have focused on projects that provide education, job training and employment search opportunities; leverage resources to reduce costs on large commodity purchases; and permit the mutually beneficial use of emergency response facilities and equipment, and recreation facilities.To provide job training and networking opportunities, the partnership launched “Ohio Means Internships,” a website that promotes internships at Wright-Patterson and throughout the state. The installation and the state are working together to help veterans take advantage of resources offered by universities as well. On base, Wright-Patterson’s transition assistance manager helps transitioning members connect easily with “Ohio Means Veterans Jobs,” a free online job search resource, thanks to assistance from the governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation.Wright-Patterson and SCC also have teamed up to offer a hands-on, site-specific education exchange program. Last year, 2,000 students in SCC’s Fire Protection Technology program used the base’s fire department, burn tower and equipment to practice firefighting techniques. In return, SCC provided professional development training to base employees and hazard waste and emergency response training to base fire department personnel. The wholesale cost of the exchange was $129,000, but the base avoided more than $464,400 in costs it would have incurred to meet federal regulations. SCC realized savings of $178,400 over five years from this project.The P4 Partnership Program is helping Wright-Patterson to cut costs in other ways. The base used the state’s managed services program to obtain low-cost licenses for specialized radios that are used by first responders and public safety personnel. The base also is using the state’s cooperative purchase program to save up to 30 percent on commodity purchases.By leveraging shared resources to meet individual and collective goals, Wright-Patterson, the Dayton Development Coalition and the state of Ohio have developed a broad, mutually beneficial and cost-effective partnership. Its success has prompted the secretary of the Air Force to ask other installations to replicate it. For their initiative to work hand-in-glove with the base on a variety of projects, the Dayton Development Coalition in partnership with the state of Ohio earned ADC’s Community Excellence Award.

Ken Starr Says He Will Resign As Baylor Chancellor

first_img Share Marjorie Kamys CoteraKen Starr during a Texas Tribune symposium on higher education in Waco.Days after he was stripped of his job as Baylor University president over a scandal about how the school handled accusations of sexual assault, Ken Starr said he will also resign as chancellor of the private Baptist school. In an interview with ESPN published Wednesday, Starr said he will remain as a law professor at the university. It’s unclear when the resignation will go into effect. A school spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.Until last week, Starr held the job of president and chancellor. He was removed from his president post by the school’s board of regents after an investigation commissioned by the school found that Baylor failed to sufficiently investigate allegations of sexual assault against students, and football players in particular. The school also didn’t provide sufficient support to victims who reported those assaults, the report said.This article originally appeared in The Texas Tribune at http://www.texastribune.org/2016/06/01/ken-starr-says-he-will-resign-baylor-chancellor/.last_img read more

Finding the Keywords Your Competitors Use

first_img 5 min read Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. In his book Ultimate Guide to Optimizing Your Website, SEO and online marketing expert Jon Rognerud shows you how to build a high-performance website and get top ranking on all search engines. In this edited excerpt, the author explains how to find out what keywords your competitors are using and how you can use that data to improve your search engine rankings.It’s important when analyzing keywords that you know which keywords your competitors use and if you’re in the proper league to either continue to use them or try for keywords that are still popular yet not used as often.Some paid keyword analyzers can tell you which competitors use which keywords, but this is often limited to what’s used for Google AdSense campaigns. A good way to determine what keywords your competitors are using is to use keyword research tools to extract keywords from their pages, and then copy and paste your selected keyword into a search engine such as Yahoo! or Google to see where they show up.An easy way to find target keywords for your competitors is to see what Google thinks they are by using the new interface to Google Keyword External tool (updated to look and act like the version supplied within Google AdWords.) The new keyword tool allows you to select languages, local search targets and more.Use these steps to discover keywords from competitor domains:Access the keyword tool and log in.Input your competitor’s web address.Review the listings, and scroll down to view all and see the collection of keywords including ad group ideas.You would pick the keywords that have (exact) search counts and that closely match your site as a starting formula. A combination of head and long-tail keywords should be included in an Excel tracking sheet. As you enter some of these keywords into Google, you’ll see varying results for paid results. These will help you understand how “commerce viable” a keyword is. The more ads, the more you can consider it to be a moneymaker. You can further input top keywords into Spyfu.com and Keywordspy.com to discover more detail, including potential paid campaigns and their resulting landing pages. This will give you a broad view of your competitor’s use of keywords, pages and overall strategy.For each of the top five sites, select keywords that seem reasonable, match your market and have search volume, and then take a look at the results that come up. Don’t worry as much about the sponsored listings, as these spots are out of your league if you have limited funds. Expand the research, and focus on the first ten direct listings of the search engine results. Ask yourself: Do these listings relate to the keyword at hand?Having the exact keyword phrase in your title helps you rank better with search engines. Additionally, you can check on the number of inbound links of these sites. Use LinkVendor to do this. If you have a Google webmaster account (you should!), your incoming links will be revealed there. Rather than simply hunting down links, however, search for quality links back to you, which are of higher priority. The search engine will return how many inbound links the website has. Make sure to select the “Except from this domain”–we want to show only external links, not links within the site.Now, what do you do with all this information, particularly if the number is high? Even if the number of inbound links is in the thousands, you don’t necessarily have to discount a keyword. In order for inbound links to be useful for search engines, they must relate to the keywords used throughout your website. For example, if you’re looking to rank well for refinancing loans yet your inbound links are for subprime mortgage loans, you’ll get a good search engine ranking for subprime mortgage loans rather than what you originally wanted, which was refinancing loans. A solid information architecture with keyword research to build out your pages will help avoid this problem. You’ll make sure that you target pages across your site, not just your homepage.You’ll get some legitimate traffic, since some subprime loans are also refinancing loans, but the traffic wouldn’t be as relevant as if you had inbound links that related directly to refinancing loans. If this is what’s happening with your competitor’s keywords, you can take advantage of it by creating a site with the appropriate inbound links.How can you determine if a competitor’s inbound links relate to the keywords used on its site? OpensiteExplorer.org will show your competitors’ anchor text and a lot more around domain authority, diversity of linking domains, which is important, and total links.A powerful tool that you can try on a 30-day free trial is Market Samurai. It provides a complete, integrated system for all online marketing efforts, and it’s a killer tool. The link analysis can show you all incoming links sorted by page rank or by anchor text use, and can easily be exported. Find out who they are, and submit for a link. You may be surprised to find out that top, or first page, listings of Google have low page rank values but extremely targeted page and anchor text matches. This is a big secret to success.You can effectively compete even if a site has a smaller number of legitimate inbound links. The key is to ensure that your links directly relate to the keywords used on your site; if your competitors don’t, you may be rewarded with top placement.
