I have just been accepted by an affiliate company selling vitamins and other simialr health products. They state that customers are responsible for paying VAT on delivery for inte

Have to say I have not heard of this VAT is normally the responsibility of the retailer, I would not buy from a company if extra charges like this was added

There are only 2 sure things in life= Death and Taxes:)

I prefer death as there is a better outcome .......

I have payed tax for purchases online, you get the mailman at your doorstep and he says, this package cost €17 import duties, you better place a warning on your website for this.

There is no way this can work as small quantities of items are not usually intercepted by customs and held hostage to tax payments. The sellers website should be set up to charge the correct tax for the country the product is going to and arrange for said tax to reach that country. After all when you buy items in a shop you don't pop down to the tax office to pay the tax on it but the retailer collects and pays. The same applies to online sellers. It is becoming quite a minefield now so if you are selling your own products due diligence is required.

You are so right RJScot

There are lots of different countries with their own version of VAT. But this is NOT your problem. I've sold affiliate products within the European market (from England to other European countries). When the buyer gets to the company's website to make the purchase they should be informed before purchasing if they are required to pay tax. It should not come as a surprise to your visitors. You can mention 'VAT applies if applicable' in your product description. ~Marion

That's what I thought - the last thing I want as an affiliate is to have to be apologizing to visitors to my site about Tax problems. Thank you Marion, I'm going and check out what info their check out system shares

Yes, each country has their own tax requirements and are different. Most have a minimum limit before sales tax is applied but because they can't collect it from the seller, they will collect it from the buyer and this is usually by intercepting at customs.
You can do a general warning on your sales page. Keep on eye on international sales and if you see one country starting to appear more often, get more information about that country and add that information in.
Good luck.

A WP theme states in its description that you should read the changelog.txt file before updating the theme. What is it and where is it and what do they mean?

I just read something where the changelog information is in the readme.txt included with the plugin, Hope this helps!

Search Engine Optimization
Updated

I have found a great keyword phrase; scoring correctly for avg searches, traffic and QSR. then I add a number in front of it and the numbers disappear, ie it doesnt look to good an

Thank you everyone. I've got some good tips to go forward with.
Much obliged!
Dawn

If adding the number changes it completely the following should not work.

http://SocialMediaExaminer.com recently created a post called "How to use Facebook Organic Post Targeting". How is it possible for http://SocialMediaExaminer.com to rank #1 for each of the following terms:

Facebook Organic Post Targeting
Facebook Organic Post
Use Facebook Organic Post
Use Facebook Organic Post Targeting
How to Use Facebook Organic Post Targeting
How to Use Facebook Organic Post
Organic Post Targeting

All of these terms are #1 for the website.

So in Dawn's case it really should not matter if she adds the 7 because she still has the base "signs of memory loss" as a phrase within her title.

Just my 2 cents :)

Best Regards,
Jim

That's what I thought!

Ah the mysteries of Google! There is no rhyme nor reason sometimes when you examine actual rankings. What you would think would be a consecutive list of websites all with the relevant keyword you find other sites are interspersed with them for no apparent reason.

Hi Dawn. Putting a number in front does change the keyword but there is a good solution to that. Use the keyword 'signs of memory loss' as the blog post title (or name of the static page, which ever you are doing). Then in a blog post start your content with '7 signs of ...... are ....' On a static page use a

headline '7 Signs of .....' As was mentioned below by kvvt not many people will specify a number when they are making a search. BUT the first line of the blog post and the

title will show up in the snippet Google shows to the searcher.

I see! That's a very good idea...

An interesting discussion! :)

Adding the number in front of the keyword phrase is good because people are more likely to read your post WITH the number. SEO is for people as well as Google so be sure to write with your readers in mind. Adding extra words or numbers at the beginning or end doesn't make the original phrase less potent it just adds to the readability. ~Marion

You can add it with the number in your tags and in your post, so it works both way, and keep your title and permalink without the number

Hey Dawn,

As you surmised, that number won't matter much and you should be able to rank for the phrase without the number. You will likely not get too much traffic for the entire phrase (phrase with number) but you should be able to get the traffic that Jaaxy told you for the phrase without.

In fact people will often try to rank for multiple phrases, i.e.,

best dog training online

This has multiple facets that people may want to try to rank for:
best dog - this one's a stretch :)
best dog training
best dog training online
dog training
dog training online
etc.

Best Regards,
Jim

I think what happens is that not many people are searching for "7 signs of memory loss" however, you still have the possibilities of ranking with "signs of memory loss" as they are part of the keyword(s).

That was my thinking as well. i just wanted to be sure.
Thank you Kvvt!
