A -ria for Everything

A humorous side note.

In the Spanish language, when you want to describe a place that sells a particular product, you generally add the suffix -ria to the end of the original root word. For example, a place that sells cerveza (beer!) is a cerveceria. Concordantly, a place that sells coffee (café) is a cafeteria, a place that sells shoes (zapatos) is a zapateria, and so on. This scheme works pretty well until you run into false friends (words that are spelled the same or similarly in both languages, but have different meanings), like this:

Man, I sure could use me some joy today!

On second thought, what they sell here could bring joy to some, I suppose.

At any rate, the only -ria to which I will NOT be going is the one where they sell Dia.

Thank you, try the veal!

    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
