June 27, 2021 Business can include their plant links on the web

Recently, I made it possible for businesses to add their plant links to our plant guides by a fixed amount of money per month.

The idea is to have many links to buy a plant on each plant guide, where each link indicates where does that shop ships packages and the size of the plant.

April 29, 2021 Added structured data for better SEO

I added structured data for better SEO in the plant page (only visible if you check the source code).

Structured data allows google to understand better the content you're showing to the user. This is important because the better structured is the page, the more chance to appear in featured widgets and so on.

April 21, 2021 Improved the SEO with hreflang

I just improved 1% the #SEO πŸ“ˆ trend of chooseyourplant.com
by adding a hreflang link to the website πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’».

πŸ§‘β€πŸ« hreflang tells Google the lang you are using, so the search engine can serve that page to users searching in that language.

πŸ’¬ In my honest opinion, even though the hreflang doesn't improve the ranking directly, it can improve the conversion and reduce the bounce rate, which affects the ranking πŸ”.

βœ… So, be mindful and add this quick win to your website

November 9, 2020 #MondayPlantStory, plant lover's stories for you

#MondayPlantStory πŸŒ±πŸ€“.

Every Monday people who love #houseplants share their story behind how they started growing them. I like to ask about what motivated them to start growing #plants what problems they had, and more πŸŽ™οΈ!

New story πŸ‘‡:
https://chooseyourplant.com/stories/plant-and-cat-lover-from-poland

________________________

Karolina and she is from Poland, and like most of us, she can't keep a fern alive because of the humidity problems πŸ’¨ πŸ˜‚.

She has a couple of cats 😺, and loves to spend the weekends with them and her plants 🌱! Her nickname β€˜kociokwiatki’ is a combination of these two words - β€˜cats’ and β€˜plants’

Karolina’s is been interested in plants for 3 years πŸ—“οΈ. Like everyone, she started with 2 of them (because we’re usually scared). She saw the plants were doing fine, so she started buying more, and more, and more πŸ›’β€¦ And now she has 75 plants already 😱!

Her favorite plant is #AlocasiaBlackVelvet also known as Alocasia Reginula Black Velvet. Alocasias usually require high humidity but this one does fine in average room humidity.

When it comes to a morning routine, she says:
β€œI start with watering πŸ’¦ and fertilizing πŸ‘©β€πŸ”¬ if the season requires it. I also try to thoroughly clean the leaves of dust. With so many plants, it really takes a lot of time but it's very relaxing for me. πŸ’†β€β™€οΈ"

β€œI also check the leaves then - looking for any signs of disease or parasites πŸ›. If there aren’t any I breathe a sigh of relief and if there are... then the fight begins! Unfortunately, I am currently facing a scourge of thrips and spider mites, it's very frustrating when you look at dying plants, but you can't give up πŸ’ͺ!”

Know a little about this gorgeous ficus that has giant leaves
.

Ficus Lyrata commonly known as Fiddle Leaf Fig is a ficus that has become very popular in recent years thanks to how elegant and beautiful it is, the large size of its leaves, and how easy it is to take care of it.

The Ficus Lyrata is a tree native to West Africa that grows in the rain forest and, like all plants, will increase in size as we give it more room to grow, reaching up to 10 meters. Its leaves are a uniform green color, soft, and can measure up to 8 inches.

If you have pets or small children be careful because it is toxic when ingested. That does not mean that you cannot have it, but it does mean that you must exercise extreme caution or attention.

https://www.chooseyourplant.com/stories/environmental-scientist-who-love-pothos

Rita has always loved how she felt in nature 🌳. That's why she became an environmental scientist πŸ‘©β€πŸ”¬.

Surprisingly with 134 plants, she doesn't have any kind of special routine. Every morning she checks every plant she has because each one needs something different 😊.

She wishes someone told her that plants are not something easy πŸ˜‚πŸ˜.
