Over 50 and Out of Work reaches out to governors, senators and representatives


Over the past few weeks, as we’ve neared our goal of documenting 100 Stories for Over 50 and Out of Work, we’ve tried to email every U.S. governor, senator and representative  about the project and invited their responses.

Have you ever tried to email a governor or member of Congress?  Very few accept direct emails any longer.  Most require you to fill out forms on their websites, so trying to contact them becomes a tedious and time-consuming process of filling in the non-standardized forms.  But we sent info about and the link to Over 50 and Out of Work to as many as we could.

Amazingly, many websites screen by your zip code, even for senators, who are supposed to take a national perspective.  If your zip code does not match their states’ or districts’, you are often not able to submit the form.  We were not able to contact many governors or members of Congress due to our N.J. zip code.

FYI — Here was the response from our government:

  • One exploratory phone call from a staff member in the office of Lincoln Chafee, governor of Rhode Island
  • One form letter from Daniel Inouye, senator from Hawaii

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
