Knell Leaving NPR After Only 2 Years


Knell told the NPR Board of Directors he's leaving the company to become President and CEO of the National Geographic Society. Knell was hired after former CEO Vivian Schiller resigned following a controversy involving the Tea Party. She was recorded mocking conservatives and questioning whether NPR even needs federal funding. It took seven months to replace her. Knell will remain at NPR during the transition to find his replacement.

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. <a href="">Seo Plugin</a>

Does the phrase "Death Knell" have any meaning to you?

At NPR the tenure expectancy of a CEO is two years, tops. NPR has had seven acting or hired CEOs in the last seven years. If they're good they get hired away for better money. If they're not the board fires them.

By most accounts Knell did a good job. And NPR has done a good job of covering his departure. See . They're far from perfect; but they remai the best national news organization in radio.
