Marhgil Macuha Viral Marketing and SEO Contest
Who is Marhgil Macuha? Is he just the ordinary blogger trying to make a buzz out of his own mini SEO contest? I first saw this kind of viral marketing from Shoemoney and I was really amazed at how the man challenged the whole $EO poeple in the Search Engine Land.
He gave his big bucks out of a SEO mini contest where the contest keyword is his own name. On the part of Marhgil Macuha, he said that he is willing to give away his earnings from widgetbucks. Now it's time for the Filipino blogger and internetpreneur, Marhgil Macuha to do the same by having his own mini SEO keyword ranking contest using own a.k.a. or should I say, his own name, Marhgil Macuhaas the keyword itself.
I also remember Marhgil Macuha claimed somewhere along the contest entry comments that he is not joking with his name and that it is indeed his own name but I doubted it because I thought it has something to do with the popularity riding but he proved me wrong by making a name for himself as one of the top entries to appear in the SERPs later when the contest started.
Marhgil Macuha in the Ituloy AngSulong
The first time that I saw the name Marhgil Macuha, I was baffled and maybe a little confused about it because his name resembled the name of a well known SEO and problogger in the Philippines, Marc Gil Macalua. So the first thing that came to my mind was that this Marhgil Macuha is somewhat trying to impersonate Marc Gil Macalua founder of SEO Philippines.
I remember it was when I first took a glance at one comment saying he is joining the contest. The contest that I am talking about is the first SEO contest here in the Philippines which is about the "Ituloy AngSulong" SEO keyword ranking contest.
I saw Marhgil Macuha as a name where he belonged in one of the comments that are supposedly for confirming that he is joining the contest. Marhgil Macuha indeed made a name for himself that time by making it big by being in the first page in the rankings with the keyword which I didn’t much bother with because I am helping that time a friend on the contest.

This further proves that he is one of the versatile forum members and SEO personalities in the Philippines today.

Marhgil Macuha - A Born Problogger
Probably born as a blogger in his first life, Marhgil Macuha has that natural aura in his blogs that could have taken him to what ever he has achieved over the times with his unique techniques and wit in blogging. Take for example Shoemoney.com where upon a quick look at his blogs, you will notice that the appeal is different and the look is so simple yet very inviting for readers to go ahead and take a peek at the different labels that he has on the sides. I guess this is all the same thing anywhere in the world or wherever you are.

In my own opinion, he has created a short lived era of integration for both SEO and natural problogger instincts in order to make it to the top pf the list of the most influential bloggers in the blogging industry not only in the Philippine but also in the whole SEO community.
Since blogs play a major role for SEO efforts, therefore it would also be proper that in order to achieve what you want as a blogger and SEO, you must learn to integrate both for the benefit of making a great optimization plan that will give way to more traffic which is eventually everything in the search engine land.
Marhgil Macuha and Why a Contest Using Blogs
When Marhgil Macuha explained why he was after a blog post in his contest, he clearly explained that because of a past experience, he was able to come up with a concrete basis that blogs do play a very important role in terms of traffic generation and return on investment (ROI) when it comes to making money online through blog advertising and get paid for blogging schemes.
Marhgil Macuha also said in his tip for blogging and generating traffic to earn with your blog that in order to do this, the blogger must learn how to optimize his/her blog post and at the same time, his/her permalink pages. The combination of these two very important factors will contribute to the success of your blogging for money schemes and get paid to blog schemes at the same time.
A Rule of Thumb for Marhgil Macuha
As a general rule of thumb for him, he stated in his own blog that "I focus more on optimizing the permalink pages, not my home page. I don’t even target a competitive keyword on this blog’s main page." This simply means that optimizing for both your permalink structure and content directed towards your individual posts has helped him do the trick neatly. He also said that he never targets optimizing for his blog's main page.

Launching a Blog Posting Contest
At first I never knew that Marhgil Macuha is serious about his blog posting contest but when I saw at once that there were already too many comments saying that they are joining his contest, I immediately posted about him.
The man I rarely a part of my daily blogging lookouts and searches but since the excitement really raised my adrenaline, I decided to make this one a career to a point where I wanted to see for myself about this little contest.
It turned out to be more than just an ordinary contest for me. I saw that this Marhgil Macuha blog posting contest is one of the most important experiments in my SEO and blogging life. This is New Year but I decided to make this one a first post this year because I really learned a lot more than I didn't expect at all.
There is a big difference between links and gaining rankings in the SERPs and also that there is a very important factor in order to rank high and that is for the search engines to see if you indeed have an original and unique content.
If this is the case, then all you have to do is to build up links and for sure, before you even decide to approach the engines for the results, you are already on top over the others.
This Marhgil Macuha contest did teach me a lot and that there are ways and means that you can learn out of this contest so I would like to personally thank Marhgil Macuha for initiating this small blog posting contest. MARHGIL MACUHA, THANK YOU FOR THIS ONE. It doesn't have to reach him personally because I know that this will get to him eventually.
I didn't also want to make posts that would look like original content for the search engines but the most important thing is that I came to know about this person and this is just the start of a new way of approach for the Google and Yahoo and MSN to see how i will optimize to influence their index in rankings and gaining leverage to attain the top position.
Marhgil has taught not just me but also a lot of people here in the Philippines with this contest but the most important fact is that this learning will never be put to waste. This will be part of everyday life as a blogger or a future problogger and internetpreneur like Marhgil Macuha. I may not be necessarily like him but I would like to be sure that I can do more than what I acted upon when I decided to join this contest.
More than what I learned, I would like to prove to myself that there is actually more than having fun with blogging and doing things that you love but also that there are a lot of other benefits that you can use in your everyday life as an SEO and a webmaster in the future.
Whoever the winner will be in this Marhgil Macuha blog posting contest, I would like to congratulate him. Jezlau is on top over the others but I still see a lot of things to do while waiting for the results this January 4.
This is both going to be an interesting and learning event for me and the others who joined this contest but I would also like to make it a point that from this day on, there will be lots and lots and lots of fun blogging while enjoying all the benefits of learning and gaining friends, most importantly, earning.
This is the most treasured part and this will be on my books. What better way to enjoy life than blogging, learning, gaining friends and best of all earning.
