According to Wikipedia, SEO is the process of affecting the visibility of a given specific website or a web page in a web search engine’s unpaid results often referred to as natural, organic, or earned results. In general, the earlier and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users, and these visitors can be converted into customers.

In more simple words, SEO creates a good environment for your forum’s topics, your site’s pages or you blog’s articles in online searching engines such as Google and Bing.

My Favorite Working Music

The Best Music to Listen to While On a Job

Work and music, some love the combination, some don’t. Personally, I am a fan of listening to something good while I work. It helps in relaxing my mind and soothing my spirit. As I listen, I feel more motivated to work, and I don’t get tired as easily.

You may have tried using music while working but it didn’t go well with you. This is probably because you used the wrong kind of music. You need to understand that music is of different genres and each has its effect on the mind. While some may inspire you to work more, others may make you work slowly, leading you to abandon your job, nobody wants that!

Now the question is, what is the appropriate type of music for work according to each task?

If you are a corporate worker in a public office, or any other environment where you may need have a headset on and it is not appropriate to have one on, then it is imperative that you follow the rules and get isolation earphones.

You can try out the following kinds of music when you work;

Try movie soundtracks

A movie soundtrack from any motion pictures production is ideal for working.

These soundtracks usually invoke your emotions and are traditionally non-interruptive. I call them “epic music.”

There are a fantastic motivation for carrying out tasks that require a significant amount of concentration like coding, writing, and any other creative or verbal task.

Try video game music 

Even when you are not a game freak, you can still try to incorporate video game music into your working schedule. Even casual video game music can suffice. These video game soundtracks are usually on-par with motion picture soundtracks. Just like all non-lyrical songs, it is ideal for different tasks that require concentration and a lot of verbal thoughts.

Try classical music 

Classical music is not trending these days, but it’s still one of the greatest working tools you find. Classical music tends to produce what we call a Mozart Effect, the ability for a type of music to cause short-term improvement in performance while carrying out certain tasks. Classical music can enhance your reasoning while you perform your tasks. Personally, I’ll go for; Beethoven, Johann Sebastian Bach, or even other classical music formed by several composers.

Try other non-lyrical music

Music without lyrics, or as it is widely known, non-lyrical music, go with just orchestral and instrumental. Whether you get them from video games or movies, they are always perfect for working on your tasks, especially when these tasks require maximum attention and concentration.

Try foreign language music

Music on its own is a language. Most music lovers refer to music as the language of the soul. There are several languages in the world each of which has their music. So even as an English speaking native, no rule says you must listen to only English music. Try listen to music in other languages as well.

I have found that this is suitable for me. If I don’t understand the song at all, I can listen to it while carrying out a task that require concentration. This is because my brain processes this foreign language as just sound and not sensible words. If I am fluent in that particular language, then my brain wiIl treat it the same as the same old lyrical music.

Try lyrical music

Lyrical music includes any music that involves people singing in words that can be interpreted. Apart from enjoying it just for fun is advisable that you use it when performing administrative tasks that require concentration.

There are also some cases where the best music is no music. Yes, there are some cases where you will benefit from playing music while working, but in other case, you may not need to have music on while working. The point is no when to use music and what music to use and borrow a tip or two from my favorite working music.
