Orthodontist SEO Tips – Do Links From Instagram Affect Ranking in Google Search?

When marketing your Orthodontics practice there are a number of different routs you can take. Social Media has proven to be a valuable resource to Orthodontists across the country; but do the links from these social media outlets affect ranking in Google search? 

Using Instagram To Market Your Orthodontics Practice

Having a high quality Instagram account has proved to be a very effective form of marketing for a number of orthodontists. An Instagram page will give patients a bit more of a personal connection to your practice, you cankeep them updated on the little things while also giving them tips and strategies they can use to help them live their live with braces. The best place to put a link to an Orthodontist practice’s website is in the bio of the Instagram profile. Many Orthodontists have created an Instagram page and found that their websites do indeed get traffic from links from their Instagram account bio. Orthodontists do not see a large influx of traffic from their Instagram links. There is no doubt that utilizing Instagram in an Orthodontics practice’s marketing strategy is beneficial, the question is raised “do Instagram links help my website rank higher in Google search?”

Do Instagram Links Affect Ranking in Google Search?

Instagram gives users the ability to add a link from the bio of their profile to a domain of their choice. Most businesses direct this link to their website. The question is “does this link have any effect on an Orthodontist’s ranking in Google search. The answer to this question is yes, but very little. Links from social media have little to no affect on your website’s ranking in Google search. There is more value in what little traffic is acquired through the links than there is real SEO value. This is not to say that you should not create a link from Instagram. An Instagram account is a valuable piece of a marketing strategy that is very beneficial. Although the link has very little value in SEO terms, what little power it has could be just enough to bump you up one spot.

When the competition began the young man was obviously not familiar with throwing a football. His first few throws trickled wide while the young woman to his left proceeded to easily toss a few balls into the giant can. As the competition proceeded the young man’s throws seemed to get worse. He completely missed the target a number of times consecutively.

There are countless tweets about the young man’s inability to throw the football. If you like a little roast I recommend you check out twitter ASAP!

If you cannot see a friend’s Bitmoji on the Snap Map they are likely in Ghost Mode, this means that they in essence are in private mode. You may find yourself asking the question “how can I see my friend’s location on the Snap Map when they are in Ghost Mode?” The unfortunate answer to this question is that it is impossible to see someones location on the Snap Map when they are in Ghost Mode.

If you are in desperate need of knowing your friends location you can also use find my iPhone or find my friends to locate a friend with an iPhone. There may be some other third party programs that allow you to locate a friend who is in Ghose Mode but I do not recommend these as they may steal information or result in your Snapchat account being locked.

What is the Compression of a Titleist AVX Golf Ball?

There is a lot of hype around Titleist’s newest ball the AVX. Golfers around the country are asking big questions about the specifications and feel of this new product. Within this article we will discuss the compression rating for the Titleist AVX golf ball. 

What is the Compression of a Titleist AVX Golf Ball?

Titleist AVX vs. Titleist PRO V – What’s Different?

Titleist claims that the AVX ball will provide players with a softer feel without sacrificing distance. The idea is to create a ball that has a softer feel than the ProV1 and Pro V1x without loosing distance off the tee. One of the big questions golfers start asking when the ball claims to have a softer feel is “how soft does the Titleist AVX golf ball actually feel?” below we will dig into this question to find an answer.

What is the Compression of a Titleist AVX Golf Ball?

What is the Compression Rating of a Titleist AVX Golf Ball?

The Titleist AVX claims to have a softer feel than the Pro V1 and ProV1x models. However, Titleist has not released the compression rating for the ball as of now. We do have data from players who have tested the product which will give us a general idea of how the ball plays and how soft it really is.

What is the Compression of a Titleist AVX Golf Ball?

According to a one player the feel of the AVX off of irons is in fact softer than the Pro V1 and Pro V1x but not as soft as the Taylormade TP5. If we take a look at the compression of these two balls we will get a good idea of where the compression rating for the AVX lies. The compression rating for the TP5 is an 83 while the compression rating for the Pro V1 is rated at 100 while the Pro V1x comes in at 90. So the AVX will certainly give you a softer feel than the Pro V series but will not give you a ridiculous feel similar to say the Wilson staff DUO. The compression rating for the Titleist AVX golf ball likely lies around an 85 or so placing it on the softer side of the spectrum while still providing players with plenty of green-side spin. Players have reported that the feel of the AVX around the green is very similar to the feel of the Pro V series. This is great for players who are looking for a little more distance off of the tee while still retaining the spin necessary to pick the green apart.

Who is the Titleist AVX Golf Ball Best For?

The Titleist AVX golf ball is best suited for a player with a slightly slower swing speed who is looking to capitalize on the lower compression and extra distance provided by the AVX. Most players have found about a ten yard increase in their distances using the Titleist AVX on the course.

This game is extremely smooth to play and the graphics are very crisp. Below you will find some basic instructions along with some tips to help you score higher in the Dune game for iPhone.

How to Play ‘Dune!’ on iPhone – Tips and Strategies

Dune is an endless arcade style game in which players must guide their ball as far as possible without landing on the upslope of a dune. When you open the app you will be presented with this screen:

This screen gives you some instructions on how to move your ball. To make your ball go forward you will hold your finger on the screen. As your ball moves forward you will reach a hill or dune that will allow you to jump and get air. To jump you will release your finger from the screen right as the ball reaches an upslope, this will allow your ball to fly into the air. There is a white line that you must cross in order to gain points so be sure to try and get as much air as possible. Once you are in the air, holding down on the screen again will cause the ball to dive and get more speed. The more speed you have the higher you will fly, and the pore points you will get. Be careful though, if you land on an upslope or the top of a dune, the game will be over. You must always land on downslopes.

‘Dune!’ Tips and Strategies

There are a few strategies you can use to help you achieve higher scores in the Dune game for iPhone. The first one is to try to land on the longer and more gradual downslopes if you are landing from a high jump. This gives you a greater chance of landing “smooth” which will give you bonus points and help you get a higher score. Another strategy is to link as many “smooth” landings as you can. This will make your ball fly extremely high and you will get a 4x bonus that will help you score higher. This will also cause your ball to fly higher. If you fly up to the moon in Dune, you will get a “to the moon…” bonus. This bonus awards you four extra points. Another bonus you can earn is the “and beyond” bonus which will award you an extra eight points. Try to fly as high as possible to get these bonuses.

What is the Highest Score in the ‘Dune!’ Game for iPhone?
