No matter the industry, the first place most people go to look for the services they need and want are search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Consumers don’t have a clear understanding of how search results work. However, they’re most likely to click on the first results to appear in the Search Engine Results Page (SERP) as they believe it to be the most relevant option.

Adorable way to let people know about rescue dogs? Check, times a gabillion.
Huntsville resident Sara Alavi has been fostering rescue dogs until they can be adopted. And to help find those forever homes, Alavi created the Instagram page @dearpups. “I created the page to share some fun images of my own rescue dogs and some of my fosters in hopes that they might get adopted,” she said, although she says has been lax in keeping it updated in the past.
Now she’s found an awwww-inspiring way to keep her page current: During October, she is posting photos each day of her dog, Nelly aka Jellybean, and some of her fosters wearing Halloween costumes. She is calling the challenge Nellyween and so far it includes costumes like Ruff Bader Ginsburg, Eve, Carol Baskin, and even the famed dress from Carol Burnett’s parody of “Gone

BURLINGTON — Since March, the Burlington homeless shelter ANEW Place has been on the move. When the pandemic forced residents and staff out of its downtown location, the shelter offered housing in RVs at North Beach, and then, three months later, moved guests to tents at the beach campground.
Now, ANEW Place may finally get a permanent home.
An emergency resolution passed by the City Council on Monday night will allow ANEW Place to buy and move into what is now the Champlain Inn near the rotary on Shelburne Road. The shelter is just waiting for final approval on funding from the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board — which ANEW Place director Kevin Pounds says he is “really hopeful”
HATLEY – The Hatley Lady Tigers were swept by Itawamba AHS on Thursday night 3-0 by scores of 25-22, 25-20, 25-20 but found plenty of improvements as their first season as a team starts to come to a close.
“We were in there for all three sets, and we competed hard,” Hatley coach Chris George said. “Our serves are getting better. We are communicating better on the court, and we gave ourselves a chance tonight. Unfortunately we came out on the losing end, but I have zero complaints about tonight’s game. I’m proud of the girls and the way they got after it.”
Hatley jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first set, but Itawamba fought back and took a 7-6 lead. The Lady Tigers weren’t done, going back on top both at 10-9 and 12-11 and getting back up by three.
Q. I’m thinking of buying a house that has a crawlspace. The foundation is in very bad shape. While the house looks quite bad, it’s got good bones. Is it possible to completely remove a bad foundation and install a new, taller one? What’s involved? Who does this type of work? What would you make sure gets done if you’re going to all this work? – Hanna S., Hartford, Connecticut
A. Anybody buying such a dilapidated house needs to negotiate a really good deal. The good news is that the old foundation can be removed and replaced with a new cast-concrete foundation, creating a full basement. The task is not much different from eating an elephant. You just take one bite at a time.
Hanna’s question reminded me of a fascinating time early in my building career. Fresh out of college, I had just rehabbed my first house in Cincinnati.
