Greetings from Rochester NY!
We are taking this down-time to work on our website; CDRochester.org.
It uses Wordpress, and we recently turned on the AOI-SEO (All-in-one Search-Engine-Optimization) options.
So, now we have to put in terms that will increase our presence in search results for potential new ECD and contradancers.
I am soliciting from the hive mind, ideas for these terms. So far we've come up with the groupings below.The idea is to anticipate what people will type into a search engine when they looking for activities similar to ours.
We'd appreciate hearing about terms you've used successfully, or thoughts you have about what else might be good terms.
We also welcome any experiences, good or bad, related to SEO in general or the Wordpress AOI-SEO in particular, that you wish to share. Instruments the performers play are already listed in performer specific AOI-SEO fields.
For meta-data fields of all our events:ParticipatorySocial DanceTraditional Folk Dancing
Live Music (except the Techno/Crossover/Club contras)
No Partner Needed
For meta-data fields of our larger events:Dance FestivalDance Weekend
For meta-data fields of ECD events and performers:Jane Austen Dance

For meta-data fields of Contra events and performers:

Thanks - and I hope to see you on the dance floor in the not-too-distant future!
We in Philadelphia are using our Covid time to try to get some policies
One thing that has come up is a photography/video policy. Some dancers do
not want to appear in any photos or videos.
Some ideas we tossed about that have practical drawbacks:
-designate one line as always non-photo/video
-buttons or badges for those who do not want to be on camera
Is this something your dance has grappled with? Anything you've come up
with that you're willing to share?
Thanks in advance,
