Forbes reported that the new funding could cut the company’s valuation in half.In August 2019 the company said it raised $400 million through a Series C raise, which gave Knotel a valuation of at least $1.3 billion. Investors included Mori Trust, Itochu Corp, and Mercuria Investment Co, along with Newmark Knight Frank, Norwest Venture Partners, and the Sapir Organization, which is led by Alex Sapir.This year, Knotel has suffered along with other co-working companies as demand for office space has lagged during the pandemic. The company has been hit with a dozens of lawsuits over the past few months from landlords who claim they have not been paid, as well as eviction notices at two of its spaces.Knotel has also been scaling back its once-ambitious expansion plans and in November said it was looking to trim 60 percent of its 4.8 million-square-foot global portfolio. It has also cut staff several times over the course of the pandemic.[Business Insider] — Keith Larsen Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink TagsCommercial Real EstateKnoteloffice marketReal Estate Lawsuits
recently Baidu update slow and large quantities of Web site is down right, must engage the many webmaster very depressed! Next can not escape, several of my sites are different right down, keywords ranking drop. Analysis of the reasons, have their own misoperation, but also Baidu recently caused by changes in the algorithm, a few points, you webmaster in the future SEO process to pay special attention to:
1, TITLE, do not arbitrarily change, found that Baidu recently TITLE special strict, I have an office furniture enterprise station (www.74850.cn) because it changed the title, keywords and description. The original several main keyword ranking in the top 5, a few days after sweat! Site: home page right down! Baidu included reducing key rankings this fall!! you may know, indeed, we sometimes need to add or delete a key, but only a little change, absolutely can not change more than 50%, it is because I am instead of too much blame! TITLE is a site of face, search engines, if the big changes are likely to make the spider don’t know you, it will make the spiders re included, site is down right is no longer bound
2, Baidu knows, many people love Post Bar in Baidu know, Post Bar post, and then directly to their own web site posted up, in order to speed up the web site or with the purpose of flow, but there is also a high-risk area, if your post is Baidu administrator found AD, is likely to direct K your website or drop right. Recently I let in just a touch of SEO to help me to do the promotion, there is a station in Post Bar because hair stick was regarded as a AD which later discovered that the post was deleted, the website keyword ranking second days immediately dropped, Khan!!!
3, links quality problems, do optimization of people know to do links, indeed, whether it is Google or Baidu algorithm, in which the chain is to evaluate the site of a very important parameter. However, many people have entered a misunderstanding, that is, blindly demanding the other side of the PR. For Baidu, the weight of the main performance is the snapshot yesterday, included more pages, keywords ranking first, site website home in the first, every day included. Such a website, even if PR is low, for the site has been down right, but also can play a leading role. Avoid by all means do not make rubbish link, reduce with the website link that has been dropped, try to choose Baidu to include a page more, export the website with less link. Check your link quality frequently and remove bad links in time.
other content like the original website, excessive optimization of the site should also pay attention to.
of course, we found in your own website is authority after don’t feel hopeless, as long as the site is not k, right down the problem is solved. The first thing to do is to check the quality of your links and remove them in time
