Last Friday (November 7), on the fifth anniversary of Ryan’s attack, the Baltimore Sun ran a wonderful piece. The Photo Journalist who put it together, Kaitlin Newman, told me that it had more than 85,000 online views just over that weekend! It’s easy to see why it is so popular… the twenty photographs she included are wonderfully done.
Please read the rest of my post before clicking over to the article. Then come back here and use direct link to the composition, Years After Beating, Ryan Diviney’s Family Holds Out Hope. I’m sure it would mean a lot to Kaitlin if you would view her work. I know it would mean so much to me, that’s for sure! I urge you to leave a comment (after the article’s text) and share it on your social media. Facebook and Twitter are key when it comes to spreading the word.
I’ll explain why.
“Sharing is caring” as they say in the blog-o-sphere… meaning websites and articles rank higher in the search engines — such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo — when more people interact with them. The three main components (of search engine ranking algorithms) are shares, views, and comments. Getting it on the first page of the search results is the goal. You know, like when people search on “Austin Vantrease” it mostly points them to this website. This website’s readers are so good that they even dominated the first page for Austin Vantrease’s mother, Gale Vantrease! Seriously, try it for yourself by typing her name in your search engine.
Let’s see Team Diviney drive this Baltimore Sun article to one-million views. This way we can sincerely acknowledge great work (by a caring professional) AND keep Ryan relevant at the same time. I’m excited to watch the tally grow as people click on the link.
We got this!
