How To Use Image Tags For Better Search Results

Image
Looking for answers beyond the myths of image alternative tags for search engine optimization.
I am not of any use of the term, a SEO expert however as a blogger I have researched the subject at length.

Why am I a writer slash publisher of a health blog writing an article on SEO?

Blogging is my hobby and I chose the health niche because as an aging Baby Boomer, health is an important issue. Hopefully, I am providing useful information to people to improve their health.

But, however beneficial the information provided may be, it is useless if people do not know it exists.That is where search engine optimization comes in.

Recently, I discovered the advice from so-called blogging experts on image optimization I was using is incorrect. I simply want to pass on the information to other bloggers or future bloggers.

For this article, I will concentrate on the 3 parts of image naming and describing alt text, src, and title.
What is the purpose of alt text?
The alternative attribute commonly k…

5 Top Reasons Why Your Body Suffers From Disease

Image
5 Major Causes of DiseaseBy Dr. Jonathan Walker

Have you ever wondered why some people never seem to get ill, and other people always seem to have come down with something? 
The answer may be more complex than you realize.

There are five major causes of disease or dysfunction in the body. Some of them get a lot more of our attention than others, but they are all of great importance.

Traumas Due To Injury and Accidents

Traumas are the injuries and accidents that occur from time to time.

Chiropractors treat conditions ranging from whiplash to disc herniations, all of which can occur following a trauma. The body has very specific phases of repair, some of which can take a year or more to complete in severe injuries.
We have had countless patients who have been in a car accident and not experienced any immediate symptoms, but days later feel the effects. This is due to the soft tissue inflammation that often takes several days to reach painful levels. 
Prompt response is the key to …

ProSolution Plus Assists Men With Premature Ejaculation

Image
Sexual complications such as erectile dysfunction are sufficient to make any man cringe. However, while erectile dysfunction gets much of the limelight in health cliques, there is an additional problem in the bedroom distressing up to 30% of men at any given time.

The description says it all: premature ejaculation is the medical term for ejaculating abruptly after penetration. You can define " abruptly after" as two minutes or less.

Men without premature ejaculation normally last around the nine minute mark before releasing their payload.

While males with erectile dysfunction cheered in 1998 when researchers introduced the first major prescription ED pill. Smarter males soon focused on natural enhancers for libido shortly after.

There has been little help for males dealing with premature ejaculation.

That all changed in 2013 with ProSolution Plus, a natural enhancement supplement clinically proven to improve premature ejaculation upwards to 64%.

How Does VigRX Plus to Compare ED Prescription Drugs?

Image
Albion Medical and other makers of penis enhancement products believe that treating Erectile Dysfunction only takes an organic male enhancer product-- one of which is VigRX Plus™.

The only side effect of all all-natural penis enhancer pills is pleasurable sex and the boost in self confidence that follows.

VigRX Plus™ uses botanical ingredients and aphrodisiacs that have been tested and used since the ancient generations of China, Europe, and South America.

It is claimed that the ingredients Bioperine, Tribulus, and Damiana are only three of the components that make VigRX Plus™ a potent enhancer, with Bioperine as the only ingredient that cannot be found in any other male pills.

Still, there are several medications in the market such as Viagra that have helped a lot of males overcome Erectile Dysfunction. These medications are commonly composed of magnesium stearate, croscarmellose, calcium hydrogen phosphate (anhydrous), and microcrystalline cellulose.

Fascinating! Star Wars, Why Not Human Doctors?

Image
Calling Dr Droid? Why aren't there any human doctors in Star Wars?
Richard Gunderman, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis

Though set “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away,” it isn’t hard to see in the Star Wars films a vision of our own not so distant future. But Anthony Jones, a physician with a long background in health care technology development, sees the Star Wars vision of medicine’s future as sheer fantasy. Specifically, he is struck by the dearth of doctors – at least human ones. “In Star Wars,” he says, “there are no people practicing medicine. Caring for patients seems to have been taken over by machines.”

And Jones is no Luddite. Until recently he was vice president for patient care and monitoring solutions at Philips Healthcare, where he was helping to shape the future of health care technology. But watching Star Wars has helped him realize that, no matter how sophisticated technology becomes, there is no substitute for the human touch. No droid, no …

Medicine: 5 Ways To Help You Remember Important Doses

Image
Did you remember to take your medication today?



If the answer is no, you are not by yourself. Individuals all over the country make the same mistake each and every day. In fact, studies show that 50 percent or more of prescription medication consumers fail to take their medications when they are required to.

And if you are taking more than one kind of medication, it gets even tougher to always remember.

I know myself that particularly on days that my routine changes that I may inadvertently skip taking my medicine.

Most people in these times are demanding than ever, it should be expected that regular medication doses are often forgotten. At the same time, customary aids such as pill-boxes, calendars, alarms and plastic bags simply are not effectual reminders.

They simply appear to increase stress.

The entire system puts so much bother on the individual person, says TJ Parker, co-founder of PillPack, a full-service, online pharmacy.

They are not only anxious about their medical con…

Is Saturated Fat Good Or Bad For Healthy You?

Image
Saturated fat debate shows how hard it is to challenge the establishment
Grant Schofield, Auckland University of Technology

The debate over saturated fat is heating up: new scientists, intelligent laypeople, anthropological observers, and clinical practitioners, have all noticed that eating fat seems to do little harm – and can actually add some benefit when combined with eating less processed sugars and other carbohydrates.

The debate reflects a change in how the world accesses information and shares ideas.

This is largely due to open access journals and social media – in particular Facebook and Twitter – which have the ability to connect research practice with the intelligent public. Fortunately, bad and often politically and/or commercially driven science survives less well under these conditions.

The thing is that science is not a democracy.

We do not have a vote and the most popular hypothesis wins. We deal with evidence, and as such we should be prepared to constantly change o…

How To Listen to Your Body For Better Health

Image
For many of us, better health does not come effortlessly. It is usually something we must work on in order to lead healthy lives and have overall excellent health.

This means listening to your body and understanding what it is telling you about what is happening inside the body. Here are some ways you can listen to your body so you can have a life that is sustained by good health.

Watching The Scale
You can listen to your body every time you put on your clothes or when stepping on the scale. 
Do your clothes fit right? 
Are they becoming too loose on you or are they fitting snugly? 
Is the scale tipping one way or another in the wrong direction?

If you find that you are losing too much weight or packing on the pounds, it may be because you are being affected by stress and are not eating in ways that promote good health. Good health comes from eating a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean meats.

This is in lieu of eating processed foods such as cookies, cake…

Why does shoveling snow increase risk of heart attack?

Image
Jack Goodman, University of Toronto

Parts of the northeastern United States are still digging out after a blizzard. And more snow is on the way. You may have seen news stories warning that shoveling snow can raise the risk of a heart attack, or heart problems, at least for some people.

So, why is that?

Snow shoveling can be vigorous exercise
Snow shoveling is a unique form of exertion. It can be vigorous and challenging to the cardiovascular system in general, and the heart in particular.

When combined with the inherent environmental conditions of winter, snow shoveling during or after a blizzard may be the “perfect storm” for a cardiac event in those with known or “occult” (hidden) coronary disease.

First, a little background. 
The “risk-paradox” of exercise is that while physical activity performed over the long term is known to be very healthy and significantly lowers the risk for heart disease and other chronic diseases, vigorous exercise acutely increases the immediate risk of a…

How Does Growing Old Wreck Our Natural Balance Ability?

Image
Explainer: why does our balance get worse as we grow older?Dawn Skelton, Glasgow Caledonian University

All of us have taken a stumble and a tumble at some point in our lives.
But as we grow older, the risks associated with falling over become greater.

As we age we lose physical strength and bone density. Our sense of balance deteriorates and we take longer to recover from a fall.
Alarmingly, this process begins around the age of 25. The reasons for this are varied and complex, but by understanding them better, we can find ways to mitigate the effects of old age.

The first thing to know is that the human body is inherently unstable, with a small base relative to its height. Maintaining an upright position and moving from place to place while staying balanced is a continual challenge for our bodies.

Our success depends on the well-being and integration of many different systems within our bodies.

There are three main systems that provide us with the sensory information about our bodies…
