History of Flint

Founded as a village by fur trader Jacob Smith in 1819, Flint became a major lumbering area on the historic Saginaw Trail during the 19th century. Smith with local Ojibwa tribes and the territorial government, along with his wife; who was also an Ojibwa, founded a trading post in Flint. On several occasions, Smith conveyed land exchanges with the Ojibwas on behalf of the U.S. government, and he was looked upon highly by both sides. As the ideal stopping point on the overland route between Detroit and Saginaw, Flint grew into a small but prosperous village, and in 1855 officially became a city. In the latter half of the 19th century, Flint became a center of the Michigan lumber industry. Michigan being a heavily wooded state Michigan was a prime region for the lumber trade. Revenue from lumber funded the establishment of a local carriage-making industry, which not too long after gave way to the production of automobiles. A rapidly growing city, the population of Flint according to the 1860 U.S. census indicated that Genesee County had a population of 22,498 of Michigan’s 750,000, which is a major increase from just the couple thousand who lived in the area in recent years. Since the start of the 20th century Flint began to turn into a booming auto centralized city. In 1904, local entrepreneur William C. Durant was brought in to manage the Buick Motor Company, which became the largest manufacturer of automobiles by 1908. In 1908, Durant founded General Motors, with headquarters in Flint, but later moved to Detroit in the mid-1920s. For the last century, Flint’s history has been dominated by both the auto industry and car culture. During the Sit-Down Strike of 1936–1937, the United Automobile Workers succeeded over General Motors, inaugurating the era of labor unions. The successful intervention of the strike by Governor Frank Murphy, began an era of successful organizing by the UAW. Flint was also a major contributor of tanks and other war machines during World War II due to its extensive manufacturing facilities. For decades, Flint remained politically noteworthy as a major population center as well as for its prominence in the automotive industry.

  21. خرید بک لینک و پیوند
    بک لینک چیست؟
    لینک و پیوند سازی را میتوان پربحث ترین زمینه
    در بهینه سازی وب سایت دانست و ایده ها متضاد اکثری در باب تاثیر خرید بک لینک قوی و
    پیوند بر بهینه سازی وب سایت و راهکار اجرای آن موجود هست .
    در‌این مطلب سعی می‌کنیم نخست دریابیم خرید بک لینک حرفه ای
    و پیوند چه می‌باشد و بعداز آن آنالیز کنیم چه تاثیری بر سئوی سایت ما خواهد داشت .

    لینک و پیوند سازی یا این که کسب و خریداری بک لینک ارزان
    مراحل اخذ پیوند از دیگر وبسایت های اینترنتی برای وبسایت خودمان است .
    مراد ما از لینک و پیوند نوشته یا این که تصاویری می باشند که با کلیک بر روی آنان
    استفاده کننده به کاغذ دیگری در وب انتقال
    می یابد . ربات های گوگل فرصت باز نگری یک ورقه لینک
    و پیوند های مو جود در آن را هم تحلیل کرده و بدین صفحه ها پیوند شده مراجعه می‌نمایند .
    به همین صورت مسیر حرکتی ربات گوگل در وب صورت
    می‌گیرد .

    متن لینک شده یا Anchor Text
    نوشته لینک شده بدین مضمون‌ است که پیوند بر روی چه عبارتی قرار داده شده‌است .
    بعنوان نمونه در پیشین همگانی
    بود که میگفتند “ برای ورود به تارنما اینجا کلیک نمایید ”
    و لینک را بر روی کلمه و واژه اینجا قرار میدادند .
    در فعالیت عبارت “ اینجا ” نوشته پیوند
    شده یا این که به عبارتی Anchor Text به حساب می‌آید .

    زمانیکه گوگل یک بک پیوند به تارنما شمارا تماشا مینماید
    به انکر تکست اعتنا متعددی داشته
    و عملا قیمت و اعتبار منتقل شده به وب سایت
    شما درین عبارت خواهد بود . در صورتیکه تارنما شما با عبارت “
    کتاب ” پیوند شده باشد منزلت شما وقتی که یک استفاده کننده در گوگل عبارت کتاب را
    کاوش می نماید خوبتر خواهد
    شد البته در صورتی‌که این لینک با عبارت “ گوشی ” ساخت شده باشد منزلت شما در عبارت “ گوشی ” بهبود خواهد
    یافت .

    خرید بک لینک از دید گوگل
    نسبتاً تمام وبمستران فعلا
    از تاثیر منفی خرید بک لینک بر سئوی وب سایت و کسب لینک و پیوند های متعددی و
    نامطلوب آگاه می‌باشند . یکی‌از سوال
    های رایجی که خواننده گان
    وبلاگ مطرح می‌نمایند این است که
    , “ خرید بک لینک و پیوند از وب سایت های با پیج رنک بالا
    چه تاثیری دارد؟ گوگل چه‌گونه متوجه مبلغی بودن آن خواهد
    شد؟ ”

    جواب به‌این سوال عمل فراوان راحتی
    است , خرید بک پیوند فعالیت صدق نیست!
    در صورتی‌که بدنبال کسب مقام مطلوب در
    حاصل گوگل می باشید و طرح ریزی دراز
    مدتی برای عمل خویش دارید , خرید بک پیوند رویه قابل قبولی نمیباشد چون احتمال دارد شما‌را با اشتباهات دور از شوخی نظیر جریمه وبسایت بوسیله گوگل در آتی روبرو نماید .

    به لهجه بی آلایش , گوگل خرید بک لینک تضمینی و پیوند
    را بعنوان یک رای مثبت از سمت یوزرها یا این که وب سایت های دیگر به کاغذ یا این که تارنما شما می شناسد .

    با کسب رای بیش تر شما بخت برد در همه پرسی گوگل
    را خواهید داشت . گوگل صراحتا
    اعلام کرده که خرید بک لینک و پیوند برخلاف سیاست
    های این وب سایت بوده و تخلف شناخته میشود .
    خلل از جایی آغاز می شود که یوزرها فکر‌می‌کنند با خرید رای می توانند موتور کاوش را
    فریب داده و در‌این همه پرسی غالب باشند اما
    تحلیل گوگل بر خرید بک لینک و پیوند زیاد پیچیده و
    قادر است .
