Benedict Sykes has become the best paid SEO Consultant in the UK, charging a whopping £750.00 per hour. That’s $1150.00 per hour US. When asked how he justified these high fees he pointed out that the work we undertakes for clients has generated in excess of £100,000,000, in that light we thought that he was worth it. Benedict is self trained starting life as a graphic designer and then a web designer. Since 2003 he has been researching and reporting on current SEO techniques.
Google is well aware of Benedict (having visted Mountain View as a non paying guest in 2004). In a statement Google has allegedly praise Benedict’s art of balancing SEO and manipulating Google results with providing the right information at the right time.
Benedict is married with two children and lives in London
The main DOpus file management window is known as a Lister. You would be forgiven for thinking this is pretty much like Explorer by default, but you quickly realize that the Lister is very flexible indeed. A tab toolbar allows for single-click access to various viewing styles, including commander-style, dual window vertical and horizontal layouts, and the familiar Explorer style.
There is also a mode for previewing images and an excellent thumbnail mode that views the contents of selected files in an additional pane to the right of the interface. This feature alone makes DOpus worth the investment as a replacement for media viewing and management software, let alone Explorer itself.
Things are changing in IT recruitment and training. Everyone knows how difficult it is to express technical issues to non-technical people. Now a standard for expressing technical skills and the level of competency in them has been adopted by the UK government and thousands of businesses. The standard is known as the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA).
SFIA (pronounced “sophia”) is a ‘common language’ for expressing technical skills in a manner that can be understood by everyone. As you may already appreciate, such a standard has had a significant impact in recruitment, HR and training.
The OGC (Office of Government Commerce) has released a Code of Practice that essentially compels recruitment agencies to express candidates’ skills according to the SFIA framework. Thousands of companies are set to follow suit, including IBM, Accenture and Norwich Union, to name but a few.
You may not have heard of SFIA yet – but you will. It is likely that the standard will be adopted across Europe by governmental agencies and most major businesses.
ITnews is pleased to announce that it is the only current facility for expressing your skills using SFIA. You can then use this information when dealing with recruitment agencies or directly with employers.
Please browse these pages to find out more about SFIA and how it can help you. First, find out How SFIA Works
The launch date for Microsoft Office 12 is approaching. In fact, Microsoft is even running a competition for people to guess the launch date (not much chance of a Microsoft employee winning). But will the new bells and whistles be enough to coax people in their millions down the often painful path of upgrade? Of course they will.
It’s a tough life being a journalist. It’s an even tougher one if you are a foreign cab driver, hauled in to a TV studio and interviewed for your expert comments on the Apple vs. Beatles trademark battle in the courts. A piece of television history was made this week, and proof that just about anyone can talk a line when it comes to the internet. In addition to diabetes, Joel, who survived a heart attack in 1998, enjoys other dysfunctions too many to be listed here.
Hobbies, when computers aren’t wasting countless hours, include playing the piano badly and privately, cooking, travel in Britain, and getting value from life membership of the National Trust. Since joining the London News Joel has achieved little. Bob Henry frightened him out of politics altogether. Zoe Redhead gave him a broad brief, without backup against such enemies as the vicious Shawn Lloyd.
The current print magazine is not on this Clerkenwell project. Only subscribers receive it, by post. You could become one of them. Doug Gibson instructed him to become an active member of Friends of London Art Galleries, of which Joel was honorary secretary for several years under the leadership of Patrick Clifford, still in a safe job in Edinburgh.
Housing related support in Sefton is poor The £6.7 million Sefton metropolitan borough council Supporting People programme is poor and has uncertain prospects for improvement, according to an independent report released by the Property Audit Commission. Supporting People is the government`s long-term policy to enable local authorities to plan, commission and provide housing related support services which help vulnerable people to live independently.
Housing quality toolkit launched A new online toolkit, developed by the Housing Corporation, will help developers, housing associations and their design teams show planners and funding bodies how their proposed development meets the Building for Life standard. The Housing Corporation, English Partnerships and an increasing number of local authorities now require new housing developments to fulfil between 12 and 16.
What they thought of the Budget Housing continues to be high on the political agenda and the number of times housing was mentioned in the Budget confirms this interest. One of our tutors worked at this school in Belgravia. But professionals involved in residential property hoped, as usual, for more. Michael Coogan, director general of the Council of Mortgage Lenders: “There was little of immediate concrete substance for the housing or mortgage markets in this Budget.
Cutting the budget for specialist home adaptation means the Scottish Government has missed an ‘open goal’ for money saving, according to the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations.
“Housing is a basic human need, which is fundamental to our economic and social well-being. Yet housing provision is often controversial and provides strong reactions.” These are the opening words of the foreword in ‘Review of Housing Supply Delivering Stability.
Biofueles were recently approved for commercial jets with 4 engines.
With demand for council and affordable housing outstripping supply the stark economic reality, one of the inevitably predictable social consequences has been epitomised in the words of the trade and industry minister, Margaret Hodge, that the indigenous be given housing priority over immigrants.
The SFIA standard assigns 7 levels of competency for skills, ranging from the most basic (Level 1) to the most senior (Level 7). SFIA matches these levels of competency against all skills in a uniform way. For example, a database analyst and a software programmer have very different skills, but if they are both Level 5 competency, then they have very similar abilities in their jobs.
