As higher education institutions adapt to the challenges of COVID-19, most universities have cancelled in-person career fairs and on-campus interviews and are opting for fully virtual recruiting programs. Symplicity and WayUp saw a silver lining to bridge their shared values to offer students and employers an enhanced student job search experience to connect to Symplicitys more than 1,000 career centers worldwide with the thousands of employers on WayUp, expanding student access to opportunities.

HKGSEO Provides Free Website SEO Analysis and Consulting Services
HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 5 January 2021 – The COVID-19 epidemic has lasted for nearly a year. The sharp fall in the street traffic has been affecting core shopping districts everywhere. In addition, under the “Anti-epidemic Fund”, the Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) launched the ” Distance Business (D-Biz) Programme subsidy. Increasing number of large and medium-sized enterprises have turned to the online market, setting up websites and opening online shops, in an effort to open up online sales channels to recover some of their businesses during the epidemic.
As many companies are not familiar with website technology, website optimization and SEO promotion are often ignored. In fact, SEO is one of the highest ROI of many online marketing channels and it is worthy of a long-term investment.
HKGSEO has performed SEO for more than 500 enterprises, with the SEO process bringing considerable traffic and sales to the companies. Leveraging on their years of experience, they now provide free website analysis (worth HK$2,000) for all content types. Here are some website analysis projects HKGSEO has engaged in:
CMS Web Content Management System
We recommend using the most popular CMS in the market to build a website. Well-known CMS such as WordPress, Wix, Shopline, and Shopify will make it easier to manage web content and make the website easier to crawl and index by search engines.
HKGSEO hence cautions against web design companies that use their own CMS. Generally speaking, these websites are not SEO friendly. For example, they might have undesirable attributes such as duplicate page titles, dynamic URLs, or category pages that cannot update new content, etc. These attributes are disadvantageous to implementing SEO plans, which ultimately leads to the redesigning of the entire website, resulting in a much higher cost.
SSL Website Security Certificate
If your website does not have an SSL certificate (HTTPS) installed, it will be marked as an insecure website by the browser, which will adversely affect the credibility and conversion rate. SSL should be installed immediately to protect customer information, especially for e-commerce websites. There are some free SSLs available on the market, such as Let’s Encrypt, with paid premium certificates recommendation by online shops.
Mobile Version of The Website
The latest personal computer and Internet penetration survey published by the Census and Statistics Department shows that more than 5.97 million people in Hong Kong have mobile phones, and 99.7% of the users access the Internet on smartphones, higher than those connected to computers or other devices. Besides, Google has launched the Mobile-First Indexing mobile version of content priority indexing. If your website does not have a mobile version, the ranking will be poor and a lot of traffic will be lost.
Website Loading Speed
According to research, more than 68% of viewers will leave a website when it takes more than 3 seconds to open. The main reason for the slow loading is the use of shared hosting or non-local hosting. Switching to local hosting, SSD or CDN can effectively improve the loading speed.
Is the website content of high quality? Does it answer the questions of potential consumers? To build up the content, some corporate websites have piled up keywords, and some have published blog articles regularly. However the content of the articles is sometimes plagiarized from news media. Plagiarism makes search engines recognize the overall website quality as low, which will in turn affect the ranking.
Websites and online shops are platforms that promote businesses. An optimized website will reward twice the results with half the effort of both online and offline marketing campaigns combined.
Please log onto www.hkgseo.com, fill in the website, email and contact number, and our network promotion experts will reply within one working day and arrange a free SEO analysis and consultation.

Treetop International School adopts Upper Air UVC to ensure safe indoor air
Heightened hygiene standards to prepare for school re-opening in 2021
- First education institution in Malaysia to install Upper Air UVGI disinfection to keep indoor air safe
- 35 units of these revolutionary air sterilizers installed, and works in tandem with split unit air conditioners
- Active indoor air management is becoming a new norm as business capacity returns
KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – Media OutReach – 22 December 2020 – Schools have been deeply impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and virtual classrooms have taken over physical ones. Whilst school premises remain empty for most of 2020, classes have been conducted in the digital environment, leaving many parents distraught over the challenge of lower engagement and increased distractions as compared to physical classrooms environments, a format which still yields superior results and deeper learning by students, according to assistant to MD of Tree Top International School, Ms Loh Lin Khuan.
“We wanted to regain a safe indoor environment so that students could be physically present and focus better in an experiential learning environment. The online learning environment made it harder to develop inter-personal communication skills and also requires a lot of self-discipline from the student. So it was critical for us to find a solution to keep the indoor spaces in Tree Top at its safest level so as to reduce the level of anxiety everyone experienced for the better part of 2020” said Ms Loh
Like many other educational institutions, Tree Top International School uses split unit air-conditioning systems and the challenge to sanitise over 350,000 cubic feet of indoor air proved to be a huge challenge. Most of these systems do not allow for ventilation.
Ms Loh further added: “We have made efforts to sanitise surfaces but realised there was no systematic way to sanitise large volumes of air without investing in intrusive air ducts and cumbersome ventilation blowers and filters. At the end of the day, students still want a quiet, cool learning environment which meant that air conditioners had to be kept running with the windows and doors shut to prevent heat, noise and dust from entering the premises. This put us in a difficult balance between the need for a comfortable indoor environment and biologically clean air”
“As scientists started to uncover more evidence of airborne transmission of Covid-19 and international guidelines were surfacing on how to prepare school premises for safe indoor environment, we knew we had to find an effective solution to achieve safe indoor air fast and economically.
This classroom in Treetop International school features an Upper Air UVC luminaire designed and supplied by TheUVC.co
At the end of the day, the Tree Top International School management decided to proceed with the Upper Air UVC units, supplied by TheUVC.co, featuring a unique design that sanitises incoming air with a UVC lamp and a photocatalytic air filter as it enters the split unit air conditioner.
“When we were first introduced to the idea of this UV attachment, we were sceptical how a simple UV light can purify the air, but after some research, we discovered it has been used successfully for over 70 years to fight Tuberculosis and Measles, both contagious airborne diseases. We realised It is indeed a very efficient way to biologically clean the indoor air, not much different from how our sun sanitises the outdoor air.”
With this new air disinfection system in place, perhaps there is fresh hope for a new normality for the students and teachers at Tree Top International School as they return to their learning environment with the help of these novel air sterilizers come January 2021.
