Back to School: High School Edition

Sure, there’s teen angst, but not enough attention is paid to shopping-for-teens angst. Too old for kid stuff, not old enough for grown-up things (read: super expensive or nice, or wine/liquor related) makes this age group a tough one. Plus, wishing them well on another school year they just know they’re going to loathe? Not cool. So skip syrupy sentiments and go for gifts that’ll get the adolescent’s thumbs-up of approval.

Go subtle and unexpected. Instead of a big Hallmark card wishing them luck, spring for a horseshoe necklace instead (the bling can’t hurt, either).  Or try offbeat and slightly annoying. This alarm clock gets the job done by rolling away and forcing your sleepyhead to chase it down.

Humor them with how they feel about school. AP History turning out to be total torture? Lend a helping hand with a message board to keep them on track and these medieval weapon push pins.  Got a kid geeked out about chemistry? This period table-inspired t-shirt is geek chic. Tired of nagging them about where they are after school? Keep this “handy” notepad out for them to jot notes to you.

If you’ve taken that parental leap of faith and given them a smartphone, remember that their tech gear is only as cool as the accessories. American Lit fans can encase their iPhones with these book cover-inspired cases. Or have him relive his childhood with an etch-a-sketch case or iPod Lego speaker.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
