, June 9 (Xinhua) -- The PyeongChang Organizing Committee for the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (POCOG) has expressed respect for the decision of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) regarding new event additions for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games Program.
The IOC Executive Board announced on Monday their decision to add 1 alpine skiing event, 2 snowboard events, 2 skating events, and 1 curling event to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games' competition program.
The IOC has also decided to remove 2 snowboard events (men's and women's parallel slalom) from the 2018 program. This will mean 4 more gold medal events, increasing the total number of PyeongChang 2018 Olympic gold medal events to 102.
The PyeongChang 2018 Games will be the first in Winter Olympic history to have more than 100 medal events.
The IOC stated through its announcement that "The new program will allow for a record number of female events Cheap Mitchell Marner Jersey
, a record number of mixed events, a record number of female athletes, and a projected increase in the overall female participation rates at the Olympic Winter Games, reflecting the implementation of Olympic Agenda 2020."
Regarding the IOC's decision, POCOG President Yang-ho Cho said "IOC Olympic Agenda 2020 opened the door to more flexibility with the events and we believe that adding new events will make the 2018 Winter Games more innovative and open New Horizons Wholesale Toronto Maple Leafs Jerseys
, inspiring and inviting more participation in winter sports. They will expand and improve the Olympic Program encouraging more athletes to compete by reaching out to a wider audience."
POCOG estimates that the additional events will have very limited impact on the overall Games operations, and POCOG will continue to work closely with the IOC and relevant International Federations to make sure that the athletes will have the same optimal conditions for competing in the new events as those that are already on the Olympic Program.
Are Your Homepage Links Hurting Your Rankings?
Author: John Buchanan
What if I told you that all the links in your site that point to your homepage (i.e. the "default" page) of your domain are doing you more harm than good? That would sound pretty silly wouldn't it? Well, in many instances, those links are doing just that.
Before I go any further, let me explain exactly what a homepage link is for anyone who happens to be new to web promotion and web design. A "homepage" link is a link that goes the main page of your website. You know Cheap Toronto Maple Leafs Jerseys
, the one that comes up automatically if you just type in your URL.
So if your domain name is www.example
then your homepage is the page that comes up when I visit that URL.
The server is setup to return a specific page as the "default" page when no actual page name is referenced in the URL. This "default" page is often "index", "default.htm", or something similar, but could be virtually anything. When no page name is referenced, the server returns the content of this page.
Ok..so now that everyone knows what a homepage link is Wholesale Maple Leafs Jerseys
, I hear you asking "John...how can links to my homepage be bad?". So I'll answer. If done correctly, a homepage link is generally a good thing. The problem is that a huge percentage of the homepage links I see on the sites that I analyze are done incorrectly.
Instead of the homepage link pointing to the actual domain, the link is pointing to the actual default page such as "index", "default", etc.
For a more visual example:
Instead of the homepage link pointing to "www.example" it is pointing to "www.exampleindex". Now Cheap Maple Leafs Jerseys
, the content that is served up at both of the above URLs may be identical, but they are both technically different URLs and they are generally treated as such by the search engines.
So, how can this potentially hurt you? Well, you have to remember that one fo the biggest factors in how well a particular URL ranks in the search engines is the link popularity of that page. In the above example, there are two distinct pages each with their own link popularity.
Most people when linking to your site Cheap Eemeli Rasanen Jersey
, will link to your homepagedomain name, i.e. "www.example", but if internally in your site, when linking to your homepage, you linked to "www.exampleindex" then you are effectively splitting that pages potential link popularity between two different URLs.
The end result of this is often that your homepage never ranks as high as it could.
The bad news is that this is extremely common. The good news is that it is relatively easy to fix. Just go through your site and look for all of your homepage links to make sure they are linking to your main domain and NOT to a specific page.
If you find links incorrectly pointing to the actual page instead of the domain Cheap Timothy Liljegre Jersey
, change them and eventually, the engines will pick up the changes and you will likely find that your rankings will improve.
There are additional things that you can do to further speed up the process, but unfortunately, they are dependent on what type of server your site is running on and a bit beyond the scope of this article (but generally fairly easy to setup if necessary).
Ok...so there you have it. A quick and easy to fix a problem that can have potentially big effects on your site's ranking. Now...go fix it!
I'll see you at the top!
