NGO 2.0's own Jianbo Li did some awesome moderating, facilitating speakers and questions and keeping us on schedule.

We here at NetSquared are proud to announce the beta launch of Hacker Helper. Hacker Helper is a website that helps prepare developers for hackathons by providing issue-specific problem statements written by NGOs and activists who are working on the ground to solve social problems. It also provides developers with links to relevant data sets, APIs, and other people who are working on projects to solve the social problem.

How it works:

A diverse group of China NGOs, foundations, techies, and tech companies are gathering to share cutting-edge tech and app case studies, from China and abroad, addressing environmental and education challenges. We aim to continue thought-provoking small group discussions, and brainstorm new ideas and solutions that address other challenges that China's 1MM NGOs and foundations are working on. Additional thanks go to Jpush, NetSquared and Oracle for event support.

Google is typically a top, if not the top, referrer of traffic to your website, so it pays to have a well thought out plan when it comes to attracting the attention of the search giant.

While it’s important to rank high for words and phrases related to your online action campaign, it is even more important to rank high for words and phrases related to your online action campaign that people are actually searching for.
