Zhongshan Bridge: The Blue Corridor in the Image of Dr. Hou Hsiao-Hsien

 

Whether it’s day or night, the “winding blue corridor” is filled with variation. You can see the actress Shu Qi on a midnight stroll and dance on the dreamy Zhongshan Bridge, enjoying a moment of freedom in the opening of the film “Millennium Mambo.” In this movie, Lin Qiang’s song, “A Pure Person,” paints a vivid picture for movie fans. The blue bridge spans above the Keelung railway. Our most recent impression is the collapse of a 22-year-old girl falling together with the bridge on the railway. She instantly got amnesia, and this area became linked to a strange kind of sadness.

Zhongshan Bridge is the oldest bridge across a railway in Taiwan. It was named Takasago before being rebuilt, and it linked immigrant settlement Seine-Tsai-Liu (this region was the main passage in高砂町Takasagomachi during the Japanese occupation) to Keelung Train Station. In order to benefit a larger area, this bridge was made like a few blue belts on Keelung railway. It carries over 40 years of Keelung history, and many locals have childhood memories seeing trains arrive and depart from here. Today, this is not possible due to the construction of a semi-underground railway.

Zhongshan Bridge is a shortcut connecting Keelung Train Station to An 1st Road. Visitors interested in local cuisine can walk across the bridge. Walk another 50 meters and you will find a food stand serving Taiwanese wheel cake, which originated from the Japanese dessert, “Imagawayaki.” Opposite from this stand is Rougeng Restaurant, which is known for its braised pork rice.

    Thank you for taking time to read this message.Best regards,

    Below you will find a short overview of a study based on an analysis of 600,000 search queries, which then calculated the value of various local ranking parameters for each top-100 page.

    Facts about Google’s Local Ranking

    Is there at least one keyword in your list of keywords, like “keyword + City (or state)”, that you’d like to rank for?

    If so, then you’ll find the information below extremely useful! These findings are based on a large-scale research effort on Google’s local ranking algorithm, and highlights the importance of various local SEO ranking factors.

    But before I go into further detail, let me take a moment to remind you that we are running a 20% Discount Special Offer for all 20-70 DA backlinks.

    So, let’s briefly answer the question:

    What is the priority of local SEO investment?

    Main Factors Impacting Local Ranking

    1. Links. While everyone understands that backlinks play a crucial part in local ranking, the lesser-known secret discovered by the study is that they have the strongest correlation to positive ranking. What really matters is how old your links are, target keywords usage and word count of on-page content. All of which helped towards creating positive local rankings.

    2. Website factors. Not surprising, but use of the target keywords and the number of words on a page appeared to make a difference. Location pages with a lot of content tend to do better than those with smaller amounts.

    3. Citations. While citations are important to establishing authority of a site, interestingly, the study found that citation did little to disrupt a site from its local ranking, especially if the site is already in Google’s Local Pack. This does not mean citation problems shouldn’t be fixed. It just confirms that while foundational in nature, citations do little to improve local rankings.

    4. Factors related to Google My Business. The study’s results showed that, while inclusive in and of themselves, having a more complete Google My Business page did result in better local rankings. Given how these factors work, it’s difficult to determine the precise contribution of GMB factors to positive page rankings. However, factors such as verified business ownership, photos and good reviews in your GMB profile all helped with enhancing local rankings.

    So, what does this mean
    for your Local SEO Ranking strategy?
    Well, for starters, you do need to tackle your citation issues ASAP.

    And, if you are competing in a particularly competitive niche, you need to start acquiring backlinks – high-quality ones! – at the earliest. But more significantly, the results of the study lead us to conclude that Google’s organic Local SEO Ranking algorithm holds a lot more sway on Local Pack ratings than it did prior to its Pigeon upgrades.
