Google is always trying to make it easer for people to connect with the things that matter the most to them and in an effort to help people “find stuff to do they come up with a great new website application called Schemer. This social tool can be used as a powerful recruitment venue for non-profits seeking to get greater exposure.
How can Schemer help you Recruit Volunteers?
Schemer helps people get inspired to take action. Basically you just sign up using your Google Plus account and fill out some details about your preferences. Schemer will then allow you to start finding interesting things that you might enjoy doing or let you create your own scheme and invite people to join your cause.
Schemer is a great asset for Non-Profit websites because it allows webmaster and website administrators to share their pictures directly in Schemer and help people connect with other volunteers around an area. For volunteer-driven organizations, having the additional exposure of an ever-growing social tool can bring valuable awareness to their cause and even help their own websites rank better on organic search results for their specific market/niche.
How can my Non-Profit Website Rank Better Using Schemer?
Easy, Schemer is connected to other Google products such as Google Plus and even the powerful Search Engine. Having more and more people “being inspired” by your scheme and liking your organization can help Google realize how much your website might contribute to user-experience and give you better rankings for your related keywords.
Any non-profit organization that is not actively using Schemer to drive more people to their non-profit website is wasting a valuable free online resource. Make sure you add the right picture by clicking on the “add picture” option at the right upper area of a scheme. You can either upload or find one online… actually it is better if you manage to find your official website picture because you can get a backlink from Schemer (and this can help you rank better in search results as I explain in my webmaster blog)
