Google Local Service Ads
Today's webinar is about Google Local Service Ads, a new and exciting feature that can benefit local service businesses. In this webinar, we will discuss what Local Service Ads are, how to find out if they are available in your area, how to take advantage of them, and how to minimize any potential problems. We will also briefly touch on being ADA compliant with your website.
Google Search Results:
In the past, Google search results consisted of three different areas on the page: Google Ads (or AdWords), Local Search, and Organic Search. Google Ads appeared at the top of the page and were based on a pay-per-click model. Local Search typically included a map and listed the top three businesses based on factors such as reviews and distance. Organic Search consisted of ten listings based on factors such as backlinks and on-page optimization.
Ranking factors vary depending on whether it is Local or Organic Search. For Local Search, the most important factor is Google My Business, which includes factors such as address, optimization, and distance from the searcher. Other factors include link signals, reviews, and directories. For Organic Search, the most important factors are backlinks and on-page optimization.
Google Local Service Ads are a valuable tool for local service businesses. By understanding how to take advantage of them and optimizing your Google My Business account, you can improve your search ranking and reach more customers. However, it is important to stay up-to-date with Google's changing marketing and advertising services and to ensure ADA compliance with your website.

NC NOW | Critical Foreign Language: Chinese | UNC-TV
Podcasts on UNC TV are made possible through the financial contributions of viewers like you who invite you to join them in supporting UNC TV. This month, all across the state, people have been celebrating the Chinese New Year and the many new Chinese language programs offered in schools. In this report, we will explore the importance of global languages in North Carolina and the innovative programs being offered to students.
Importance of Global Languages:
North Carolina is educating students for a new economy that is based on a global economy and a global citizenry. All things happening across the planet affect North Carolina, making it vital for students to learn global languages like Chinese. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction has made a strong commitment to helping students learn global languages by offering immersion classes from kindergarten through college.
One of the most innovative programs is the Confucius Institute based at North Carolina State University. There are now 20 Confucius classrooms in North Carolina, more than any other state. The Institute has hosted a special concert of Chinese traditional music for students and the Sanford community. A Confucius classroom opened in Sanford this year as the first in a community college. The program is a giant step forward for North Carolina's economy and a great opportunity for students.
Foreign Language Programs:
In Fayetteville, foreign language programs have been implemented in kindergarten, and students are exposed to Mandarin Chinese from an early age. Parents were initially hesitant about the program, but they have now come on board and are teaching their children at home. In Cumberland County Schools, over 80 foreign languages are taught, making it a unique model of education.
Smith Academy of International Languages:
The Smith Academy of International Languages in Charlotte is an award-winning language immersion school. Mrs. Chen, one of 57 teachers at the school, teaches the entire fourth-grade curriculum in Chinese. The program's cognitive benefits can be seen in student achievement, with math achievement above 94 percent. The Chinese immersion program adds richness to students' education and prepares them for a global future.
Cuthbert Sim High School:
The brand new Cuthbert Sim High School in Union County focuses on global languages and cultural understanding. The school's motivation for teaching Chinese or any other critical language is because North Carolinians are experiencing the same economy as people across the country. Drastic changes in jobs and industries make it vital for students to be globally competitive and prepared to collaborate on a global level.
Learning global languages and cultural understanding are essential for students in North Carolina. The state is committed to helping students learn Chinese and other critical languages. The innovative programs, like the Confucius Institute, foreign language programs, and language immersion schools, are preparing students for a global future. Celebrations of the Chinese New Year are examples of the growing connections and mutual understanding between different cultures. UNC TV is proud to produce the Learning with the World series in association with Learn NC and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, thanks to the financial contributions of viewers like you.
