Here Lies an Article That Dreamed of Being Evergreen

To make an article timeless, is perhaps, the most difficult proposition.

Halloween is pretty evergreen, however the business world is changing fast so it’s not so easy to know what is evergreen and what is not.

The idea of evergreen is valid. Despite the rapid superficial change that seems to be going on in the internet credibility world, the basic principles remain the same. Valid useful content. Well structured around the key phrases the readers use to search for answers.

A fun way to remind us of those evergreens.

You model the practice yourselves!

Love your tutorials, but if you could subtitle them for the Deaf and hard of hearing (over 1 million of us in the US), we could get the full benefits of your videos too.

MJ –

If you look further down each post, you’ll see that we do do a written synopsis of all videos we produce. We do that mainly for the benefit of those who prefer not to watch a video, but also for those who are deaf or hard of hearing. However, you bring up a good point – perhaps it’s something we’ll incorporate in the future.

This is very nice video. a author said- What moves men of genius, or rather what inspires their work, is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough.

Wow, Marc, THANK YOU for your response. Certainly means a lot. Yes I know of the synopsis(es), which is why I noted that getting the full version (that those blessed with hearing get) would make a significant difference for those who can’t hear any aspect of the videos.

Thank you again – very much – for your sincere reply and then some.

I look forward to seeing EzineArticles company grow.

With peace,
