0 The Chinese Arts Spoken in English, for English Speaking Students. It makes sense!The Chinese Art Channel explained in Plain English, for English Speaking People.
Someone recently complained to me that most Chinese Art Channels on YouTube are all in full spoken Chinese. “What use is this to me. It’s useless. I speak English like everyone else in the West.”
This is a dilemma and a short-sightedness of those irresponsibly handling what is supposed to be an international arena of shared leisure and spiritual pass-time but moreover, a way of life. on the other hand, you can at least watch the method, though I admit, many Chinese Art videos spent long periods of time explaining things about the brush, its handling and so on, for long long periods of time, all in full blasting Chinese.
I am as clueless as anyone else when it comes to such education but at least the Chinese can benefit from this. I hope anyway. There are many languages in China. The on commonality is the Written language.

Google made big changes to the ways their search results rank,   in the name of providing more relevant search results for it’s users, google engineers published blog post which indicated there were 11.8% organic search results will be affected, in another word, there are about 12% of google search results are considered low quality by google itself. The update was initiated more than a year ago, no wonder I saw a few of my keywords’ ranks dropped like a rock, on the other hand almost all keywords promoted by contextual links are not affected, a few of these keywords ranked better than ever, it’s almost a sure thing that plain link building loses all it’s attraction, at least in the eye of google.

Now what on earth is plain link building and how do people do it? a large percentage of SEO firms will do this,  they add your links to those linking websites without context, the only updates on those websites are the new links, it’s safe to assume all of them are trash, the name link spamming are just for these sites. The latest google update will definitely downgrade most if not all of these sites, the links on those spamming sites won’t work anymore.  

Examples will be great for explanation. When I got into online marketing long time ago, I started with this keyword, moving pad, at that time almost every body was doing plain linking campaign, lately I figured that every site in the campaign had way too many links, worst yet, those sites had no content at all. In the beginning, the ranking of the keyword in question rise pretty fast, eventually the keyword could be found on first page,   the honeymoon lasted until google changed it’s mind. Here is another keyword, chain puller , we put the link in relevant context, not too many plain links have been built, now we have really good ranking for this keyword. So contextual link wins this time, what about future? In fact the only thing matters here is content, so if you create great content, not only people will love to read your stuff, so do the search engines. You probably think there are already too many blogs out there, it’s not true, there will never be too many good blogs, for instance let’s examine this one, kaiya eve couture , in the beginning I just post to it casually, lately I added nice stuff left and right, now it can even rank the highly competitive keywords. As we can see, quality article marketing is much better than plain link building. Now imagine you have your own blog network, something like Jaw Jaw Turnbuckle, you will have the power to push any sites up in search engines.

At the end of day all you need to do is to create quality content, share the content with people, and put your keywords in the context you’re good to go, your effort will reward you handsomely in the end. Persistence and patience are the keys to success, nothing will automatically improve overnight, it doesn’t matter you’re doing SEO or advertising your business, keep doing what we have to do till the end of world. When publisinh articles, I prefer ezine, new article will be indexed within an hour if not minutes, of course your posts on some blogs will be indexed real fast as well, I believe you should see for yourself, for example Swivel Eye Pulley, nice writing, good content, published on popular site, all these points make it perfect for SEO.

We’re not finished yet, please remeber, if you don’t take social media account, you’re lost. The Twitter tools is a wordpress plugin, you can install it, then go ahead register a new twitter account and app, configure your twitter tools prpperly, then make sure every new post will post a new tweet, it’s easy and really useful, it’s a big loss if you don’t use this tool.

Beginning early this year, google made some changes to their search ranking,   in the hope of offering it’s search users better results, google engineers published blog post which indicated there were 11.8% organic search results will be affected, in plain English, almost 12% of google search results are useless or of low quality. They planned and started the update about one year ago, and recently I see some of my ranks were lowered considerably, the good thing is that those keywords promoted by content rich links are not affected, a few of these keywords ranked better than ever, it’s obvious that link building the old way is the thing of past, probably due to link spamming sites being downgraded by google.

What is old way of link building any way? There are a lot of SEO company out there are doing this, they add your links to those linking websites without context, these websites will only be updated when new links are being added, it’s safe to assume all of them are trash, the name of link spamming sites is justified. Now google algorithm probably will weed out these sites, all the links on those websites will have the same fate.  

Let’s check out a few examples. In the very beginning, I didn’t know better, I needed to rank the keyword, grab hook, of course with old way of link building, a lot of sites I used had too many links, and the worst thing is that those sites are linking sites only and had no content, not even crap content. In the beginning, the ranking of the keyword in question rise pretty fast, eventually the keyword could be found on first page,   the honeymoon lasted until google changed it’s mind. Now let’s look at another keyword, chain pullers, we promoted this keyword with articles and blog posts, almost no plain links, you can imagine how this keyword ranks. So contextual link wins this time, what about future? It all boils down to content, as long as you dole out high quality content, you will attract readers as well as search engines. You probably think there are already too many blogs out there, it’s not true, there will never be too many good blogs, take a look at this blog, best smartphone 2011 , in the beginning I just post to it casually, lately I added nice stuff left and right, now it can even rank the highly competitive keywords. As far as SEO concerned, quality article marketing is much better than plain link building. If you can build a group of your own blogs, such as black winch bar, then you will have a powerful weapon in your SEO arsenal.

Remember content is king, you just need to create content, publish and share with people, and put your keywords in the context you’re good to go, this strategy will prevail in short or long term. The virtues, persistence and patience, are essential for your success, you shouldn’t expect things to improve overnight, be it your business or search rankings, now all we need to do is to share our love for creating and sharing nice content and not to worry about the ranking every day. One of the best articles directories is EzineArticle, a new article will be indexed and cached in less than an hour, popular blogs will get your post indexed as soon as you post it, here I am going to show you an article in article directory or on a blog, let’s look at this one, wire rope clips, , good writing, interesting content, indexed and cached, all these points make it perfect for SEO.

Last but not least, the social media is the must have channel for your marketing effort. For wordpress blogs, I recommend twitter tools, then go ahead register a new twitter account and app, set up API credentials in your twitter tools option, then make sure every new post will post a new tweet, it’s simple and elegant, if you don’t use this tool it’s just too bad.

*How do you explain to someone how chinese calligraphy work? and how words or formed, created, etc.

Chinese calligraphy is a very precise and tradition art form done with brush and ink.

 

My first time at chinese painting on rice paper. Please critique it. http://laludia.deviantart.com/

Wow. You are very good at Chinese painting. I remember seeing your works before here too. At that time, your works were more towards graphic approach. I also remember saying something about going more painterly approach, which you did. And it is just wonderful. It’s very nice to experience with different media; it’s so much fun. Also you will know yourself better and find yourself much accomplished once you try everything

 

Which should I choose

Any good websites?

There’s a lot of different Chinese martial arts with very different styles of fighting and training. This answer might not help you with exactly what you’re looking for but just looking into the different styles and figuring which one best suites you.
If you’re looking to incorporate another martial art into the style you know already… that doesn’t exist. It’s not the styles that get incorporated but your handling of them yourself. It’s all about person style and preferences.

I recommend you try and look for a teacher, though. Teaching yourself can be sloppy and sometimes awful. You just run a big risk of learning something wrong and it never going unchecked and the lack of knowledge that comes with having a teacher where rather you’d be relying on a set source of information from books and videos.
