I am growing in my MS attitude. It's improving slowly. I think my overall complaint is with the desktop clients used by each service. Because my hdd is small (128gb) on my macbook air, I hate that they leave a footprint on my drive. Yet it's nice how dropbox integrates as a folder in my system. Just wish it was all online, not on my macbook.

SEO Community  - 
 
I have been a member of this community for some time but this is my first attempt to reach out for help...for your wisdom (if you care to share it ).

I need help problem solving an SEO situation that I have never encountered before. Here are the details and what I ahve already tried to problem solve:

Site: http://pedorthicscanada.ca/
Site Development: I and my company did not design the site but ahve been hired to help fix their SEO (something I do regularly).
Site CMS: Wordpress 4.1
SEO Plugins: All in One SEO and Google XML Sitemap

Issue: They want to rank for a Google Search for "pedorthics canada". Last May/June I accomplished this for them and they were happy. Somehow in fall 2014 that search result disappeared entirely. I cannot even get pedorticscanada.ca to yield an organic result in Google.

What I have done:
1) Checked if site is indexed and it is
2) Homepage is indexed
3) Ensured that "pedorthics canada" is in live text on the homepage (twice), that is also the homepage title tag, and H1 tag, images are properly named including keyword string.
4) Sitemap is submitted to Google and via Webmaster tools
5) Cleaned up all crawl errors and structured data errors in Google Webmaster Tools.
6) Created Google Local for Business Listing and G+ Page.

Insight requested: As you look at this, is there anything you could suggest I try? I am very stumped. The frustrating part is that a "pedorthics canada" search yields no listing at all. That is what I want to fix. I welcome any insights you might like to share! Thanks!
Pedorthics Canada (Pedorthic Footcare Association of Canada) is a pedorthic self-regulatory body which verifies, monitors and supports the competent and ethical

A good friend of mine +Brett Ullman is trying to help people struggling with mental health. This is very important to me and him. If you would please partner with Brett in this incredibly important project I personally would be very grateful to you! http://goo.gl/SMQSsS
Brett Ullman (Worlds Apart) Digital Media Project (Walking Wounded: Mental Health & Self Injury And The Sex Talk) We teach our kids to ask for help when they need it and as we watch our children mature we remind them, “If you ever need anything, just ask." As adults, though, when we need help ourselves, we rarely ask for it. This is certainly true of me in my own life. For years people have said to me, “If you ever want to do something and c...

I am also a church planter and leadership team member of LifeBridge Community Church and I manage JesusAtlantic.com to help churches in Atlantic Canada to communicate and network together.

Suggested G+ Circles:
