Android Phone:Google's New Linux-Powered Baby

Today I saw the Google co-founder and president in technology Sergei Brin and this time Google is up to their newly developed Google Android Phone, a Linux-powered mobile phone and browser which people earlier called as the G-phone. This Google phone is in unison with a lot more features you could ever imagine in your mobile phone and browser. In fact, in order to come up with a concrete review of the said gadget, people from Google like Steve Horowitz had to literally experience the full functionality of the said gadget for six months. See the video below.

The only question however is if you are willing to buy a mobile phone that's attached to a less popular operating system which is Linux. Another important issue however is if Google could come up with the development of more applications that will fit with the Google Android because for now, there are only a few interesting and usability functions that I believe with the fast development of technology will easily and quickly be rendered obsolete in a month or a year's time.

Deals and plans for the use of the said Google Android phone are for me cheaper than what most of us could ever imagine for the service that it can give to your usability needs and function as well. You can find other interesting feature review on the Google Android platform mobile phone also at ZDNet blogs and another feature article by Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols at the Computerworld Blogs.

Android is a new open source operating system and software platform for mobile phones, the latest perhaps. I also read today that soon LG and Samsung will come up with their own toy Androids which hopes to compete in the market soon next year which is 2009. Could this be another era of battle for the best developers for this new Android platforms. Let's just see in 2009 who makes the best feature meanwhile, I would suggest that you play along and don't hurry it up as what Sergei Brin told in the video above that Google is still on the way and trying to develop more usability-based applications. If you wanna buy the Google Android, it's your call.

Google Co-Founder Sergei Brin Blogs Today

If you don't know yet, Sergey Brin is a co-founder of what we came to know today as Google the biggest revenue sharing and search engine of the modern internet technology today. It was a partnership with Larry Page and an intervention by Eric Schmidt in managing as chairman and executive officer in the year 2001. The availability of Google was made possible way back in September 1998 and Sergey Brin since didn't have anything heard on him for a long time.

Today, I just read from "Joe Duck's" blog about Brin claiming his own blog and writing about something different as the topic centered more on his post about Parkinson's Disease. Aside from Joe, a popular blog, TechCrunch also posted about Brin's new puppy personal blog which for me sounded somewhat different from what I expected him to be discussing. anyway, it's good to know he is still there somewhere where we don't mind him getting all privacy in the world after being able to give the world what Google is today.

After a $75 Million Buy: e-Bay Decides to Sell StumbleUpon

I read from the blog by Joe today that according to TechCruch, StumbleUpon is now for sale by e-Bay. Well what do you know? It really has been a very long time that I have been done and over with social media sites because I never even knew that StumbleUpon was bought by e-Bay a long time ago.

Now, after learning that it is for sale by e-Bay, I wonder how much will it be for the biggest e-commerce selling site today? I actually commented this on the Duck's Blog asking if maybe the big "G" has offered to take over it. I guess not after Digg which we all know is proven to have shared powers on Google indexing.

So that's why StumbleUpon since was gone in the results and I would not wonder about that because of the latter relationship that Google has been up to with StumbleUpon owner, e-Bay lately. This is really going to be yet another interesting drama on social media sale of SU. If it is bought at $75 M, then how much could it be for sale now?

The Intelligent SEO Blog is Now a Dofollow Blog

Finally, after a few years of the Intelligent SEO Blog, we are turning into a dofollow and I have just removed my "nofollow" attribute with the help of Ronnie on his Tips 4 Blogspot. If you are also someone who is looking to turn your blogspot into a dofollow linking blog, I suggest that you visit Ronnie's blog straight because there is a comprehensive yet simple guide in turning your blogspot into dofollow linking blog.

Why Dofollow Blogs Get to Keep Link Juice and High PR - Dofollow and Nofollow Links Explained

An Issue of Dofollow and Nofollow Theories

This might not be as concrete as what others would assume for a dofollow blog theory knowing that this had never been proven at all. Just some claims, I have visited a lot of dofollow blogs today and I was really surprised to see why they all seem to get all the juice and getting high PR while those nofollow blogs don't. Is there really something that Google has been hiding from the SEO personalities out there who are looking to find the answers to their questions that happened to be the same as mine? Why do dofollow blogs have high PR and how do they really keep their blog's link juice that way?

What's the Secret with Dofollow and Nofollow Linking?

I have hears it about so many times that link juice can be passed if you have a dofollow on your links for a blog but what attracts me to question this is why would those dofollow blogs really get high PR while nofollow blogs don't? Could there be something we are mission here being applied by Google with respect to link rules and how they see dofollow links? I bet not. Then why would a dofollow blog really get to maintain its high PR when they all seem to pass their link juice like havoc on a train unlike those nofollow blogs who don't share link juice at all with their links.

What could really be the secret behind this unique treatment by Google with respect to links or is it really the links with such attribute that attracts the system of Google linking rule that allows dofollow blogs to get higher PR?

Following your Instincts in Using Dofollow in your Links

This is my conclusion on my part but I would suggest though that you follow your instincts where it leads you. I have observed that most of the people who employ or use dofollow with their blog links do regularly update their sites/blogs which we all know has been proven to take in a lot of favor with respect to Google system of updating PR and giving blogs a high PR on the next update.

This is one opinion that I cannot really let pass on this issue. I have also observed that since people who own blogs that have dofollow on their links do tend to manage their blogs well in order to fight spam which might be the sole reason why Google really loves blogs that go for dofollow and so goes with the owners of these blogs. Google also seem to like them and do not make any move at all to penalize them with PR downgrade as much as they do not like blogs that spam their index. This seems to be the relationship that binds Google and Dofollow blogs that are well managed by their owners and get updated on a regular basis.

Link Dillution and How Google Sees and Penalizes Link Spamming

Although dillution of links is another issue when we talk of linking and having dofollow attribute with our links, it is also on my own observation that when you make a linking spree that targets phrases on the long tail, Google seems to like those links and gives you more chances of gaining a higher PR on the next update by basis of knowing that your links are naturally generated and not some paid links that we all know are usually on keywords and keywohrases that are either short or have no backbone. This I think is how Google controls the spam linking and paid links which allows them to see if a single keyword linking frequency is on the move on your blog.

The Longtail Anchor Text Linking

This frequency then sets sail and sends Google some sort of a signal that triggers them to see if you are doing paid linking or link spamming and link dillution with the use of rhetoric keyword or keyphrase linking. This way, with the use of diverse long tail links or the use of long tail keywords and the "read more" system, Google can control spam linking. Although this is mostly based on my own observation only. Go ahead and start looking for that next dofollow blog and see if what I am talking about does not have a basis.

The Google Engineer's Blog is a Concrete Example

Look at what Matt Cutts' blog has on its anchor texts? They all had the same format and we don't notice that because they all look different. Did you get my point here. I mean, linking with the use of long tail keywords or keyphrases do really pay a lot of advantages and it's what the old engineer had been doing all along and also what we've been seeing all along in the Blogger Blog and the Google official blog. I mean, it's simply everywhere and we don't even notice it.

Why Philippines is Prime Source for SEO Paid Content

Now what do I really mean by paid content when I say that the Philippines is a prime source for paid content? Let me make things simpler so that even the new bloggers will understand about what I am talking about here. After all, this post is really targeted to let other aspiring bloggers know that our country is not just the prime provider of SEO outsourcing services for the world wide web market but also paid content to mention.

Note however that even if I am providing here my own opinion, that there is no reason at all to argue about things we all know is the truth. When I say that the Philippines is a primary source of paid content, I am referring simply to blogs and bloggers and get paid to blog schemes. I myself had done maybe hundreds of those paid links so there is no need to be afraid.

Everybody does and not just once in their life as bloggers but also as good and quality content creators. The reason for the Philippines being the number one provider for paid content is because there is no doubt that there are a lot of bloggers here earn from their blogs.

Of course there are other reasons for this situation but the main thing here is that we all know about the paid blogging or the get paid to blog and get paid while doing what you like best. Filipinos really like to write and there area lot of great content writers out there that weren't even given a slim chance to be part of groups of web copywriting professional simply because we have so many of these good copy writers.

There is actually an overflow of these writers in almost any field as WE are also good researchers and we take time to study our works before we even have them handed over to the proper owners who are persistent on buying our content in our blogs.

I admit it that I must be maintaining about 80 or a 100 blogs right now but most of them are either orphaned or let alone to rot in the web because I really have no time to write due to overload of work here at home. If my plans to take in a student or two materializes by next year, it will be a very big convenience for me to study and handle business at home while earning a significant amount of income.

This is rare and unlike what most would say that paid content is dead, I believe that it will never die in 10 or 20 years from now. It works and it will always work unless Google finds a restrictive way to limit and not totally control paid content creation through paid for blogging schemes, it will not die.

"Promotional Items Corporate Gifts Srednarb" and SEO

"Promotional items corporate gifts srednarb" is the new keyword for the SEO contest that was just launched by one of the senior web design and SEO professionals in SEOPh forum, Alfredo Palconit. Al has been doing business since I don't know because I was not yet in to internet marketing then but he is a good friend of mine, in fact he is one my friends among friends that this Intelligent SEO Blog is linking to. I am not really knowledgeable much with all of the contest rules because I am sleeping that time but I would like to announce it here just to see what happens next.

I believe that what the participants are doing right now is optimizing their static sites which is a primary rule in joining this PhP 275,000.00 SEO contest in the Philippines. This is the second highest buck SEO contest in the Philippines since the failed "Alibata" SEO contest organized by the SEOPh founder Marc Macalua (I read in his blog that he is getting married soon). There's are a lot of requirements for the said "promotional items corporate gifts srednarb" contest. Srednarb I know stands for the word branders which is actually the brand of the main sponsor of the said SEO contest.

I am sure I will not be able to join this one unless someone teams up with me and would be willing to lend a domain and design and optimize it for the keyword on the contest as I will be the offpage SEO worker. Mind you all SEOs from the Philippines that this is only a short contest which is targeted to finish by December of the same year so there is really very little time. I also see that there is no ranking page yet on the keyword "promotional items corporate gifts srednarb" for the said SEO contest so I would be looking to draw first blood here since Al announced the source where we can find the contest keyword.

This is so long a keywords so whoever has the perfect match will mostly get the top spot early today. I hope the guys out there who haven't had any sleep trying to take in and wait for Al's announcement already knows about the keyword unless they are sleeping right now. Here goes...

PPC Campaign Management for Philippine Business

The Philippine Business Market Condition

The Philippine business is a very sensitive arena today especially in terms of developing an internet based campaign for a certain niche or business target. With SEO for Philippines-based business on the way to develop interest in entering the battle for internet supremacy and in appearing in the search results, many owners have seen and felt the benefits of getting an online campaign up for higher return on investment.

This particular possibility has never been opened up for many businesses in the Philippines but it is a major point to consider today because of the awakening of the Philippine business sector to search engine optimization and search engine marketing and the pouring of outside business and investment from outside of the Philippine business responsibility.

Also since online marketing is where any type of business proved to be benefiting from, therefore, launching an online campaign can greatly influence the business revenue as well as widen the market and customer targeting.

Search Engine Marketing Industry in the Philippines

With this as the current situation of the marketing and business arena here in the country, there is a big chance that in a year or two more of perseverance of the Philippines best SEOs and SEMs people, hopefully we can bring about the interest of different business to search for a stream to enter into the battle for getting on top of the search results just like what India is up to all the time.

Although Philippines has been left in terms of technology by the latter, the best people in the internet business is hoping that next year will witness the downpour of jobs within the country not just from outsiders investing in different fields of business here but also from the local businesses as well and we hope that these companies will take the services of a fellow Filipino in developing business marketing strategies as well as giving higher return on investment for their respective businesses.

Local Businesses to Tap into PPC Marketing

Aside from the continued struggle of Philippine local search engine marketing and search engine optimization people in the limelight of the local and imported businesses, webmasters are looking to tap in to the implementation of the PPC marketing design for the different local business here in the Philippines to gain the necessary exposure to the world.

A good example for this is like in the globe spanning of market availability and targeting using the PPC management system introduced by Google. There is also the Yahoo search marketing as well as the MSN AdCenter system respectively.

The 3 Major Marketing Venues to Look in by Local Philippine Businesses

Hopefully with the help of these three marketing schemes (YSN, MSN AdCenter and PPC Management by Google) especially the PPC management system by Google, businesses will have a larget market of global resource instead of just simply just being reliant to local availability.

PPC or Pay Per Click campaign management hopes to widen the audience targetting and widening also the market scope of the different Philippine competing businesses and therefore, this helps to promot a wider market as well as giving larger perspective in improving income over the use of internet resources and internet marketing methods that really proved to be working at all times for almost any sort of business today. PPC management and marketing campaigns are not just to promote business.

Captivating Capiz SEO Contest

Today there is another SEO contest dubbed as the "Captivating Capiz" SEO contest and it opened just yesterday when the Cebu SEO contest ended. This race hopes to capture all the beauty of Capiz as a treasured land as well as an eco-tourism center in the Philippines. The organizer is good enough to have thought of hitting 2 birds in one stone because of he is not just promoting his native land to all tourists and travel enthusiasts but also about consciousness on blood donation which is one of the major request of the major sponsor to the said Captivating Capiz challenge.

So far, I have seen only a few participants who were able to think it out to join the contest and come up with the requirements which is over all not really that hard to produce to get in. I believe that there is more to this challenge than the Cebu SEO contest that has just concluded the other day where the organizing person himself in the Captivating Capiz contest won over competitors.

I am announcing it here in hopes to wish good luck to all the contest participants.

Watch Out for Firefox's TraceMonkey Beat Google Chrome

We all know how Java Script speeds up things and stuff in the web today. While millions grace, cheer and hail Google Chrome, the new revolutionary Google browser, Firefox is on its way developing it's own, the great Spider Monkey, the JavaScript runtime engine in the Firefox browser. Where does this amazing java script engine outperform Google's chrome. Take a look and read along this post that will eventually change your mind over Google Chrome.

I read this interesting post of the development of the java script engine by Firefox

While car fanatics are comparing cars with their today and although it is late for my finding out about the Spider Monkey I want to have this great news featured here at the Intelligent SEO blog in SEO Philippines block.
high performance engine, we in the search engine world are on the lookout for the engine that will break the ice in outperforming other search engines with the technology that will rise above all. I am talking about Google Chrome, the new revolutionary Google Browser developed by a team of specialists in Denmark. While everybody is eager at announcing about the latest innovation by Google, somewhere in the web, there is a very interesting pointblank history in the making to break this new technology to topple big B and LOOK WHO'S BEHIND IT! None other than Firefox itself, the best web browser there is for me and for most of us here in the search engine and SEO world.

I haven't downloaded and tried Google Chrome at all, maybe because I really don't believe so much in what Google has achieved here from the opening that gathered a lot of spectators only to end up BUGGED down. Today, that perception ends upon me finding out about the new Firefox Browser will soon be more than what Google can offer.

While Google Chrome has its best feature of the said browser which is the V8 feature, according to
ARS TECHNICA, high-performance JavaScript virtual machine, Firefox is on the way to its own high end technology that will match up more than what speed Google Chrome has in its V8 - TraceMonkey. Nobody must've heard about it yet for at least we all know that the interest for now is with Google but let the challenge begin as graphical data and analysis on proof shows.

I couldn't agree more that the new Firefox Browser drive is more superior than what Google Chrome can offer for its users now that I saw the actual data and analysis with concrete information.

2 Years Back I Crafted Myself and My Destiny

Secrets never get revealed so you have to follow where your instincts lead you. As a SEO, I never believed in so many things until I met my old blog that used to discuss all about myself and my destiny. Now the question is answered. I am here in the world of SEO. I entered and followed the white rabbit and now I am able to answer all neo questions. That is why finally and there is no secret because I now know. I now know that I can be what I want to be with no hesitation and no doubt and most of all no job.

No job because I don't work for the greedy people who masks the world with their pretencious masquerade of luring people into their chair of nothingness. I have escaped and I have more on my face right now. More on everything from time to family to money to work (not just a job) to people and chances and opportunities. They all seem to pour and rain like cats and dogs. One by one it all comes back to me now. There is now no secret for me, just things that I didn't get introduced to.

There really is a lot out there and there is an abundance of everything and I have proven it so just because I personally saw it all coming one by one. I do not know why or how but because I know that they all will come and so they all came to me. Everything is now falling into pieces for me and for everything I ever wanted. I know that it's not too late. I can still cherish all of it here in this lifetime because I know that there is an abundance of it all not just yet introduced to me but I know and I really know that there is more.

I am an SEO and a link builder who knows things now. 4 years, yes it took me that long but I am here and I want to thank my brother for introducing me to SEO and this life that I now have. He is my mentor. I have a lot to learn but what's important is that I am here and I know that I am growing each day and I owe it to him and to myself. I have struggled and urged myself because I know.

The New Google Indexing

An experiment using a SEO contest is what I conducted recently and I posted an initial opinion on the results that I got using the said experiment to know how link building and use of anchor texts in marketing a webpage effects the rankings of the site in terms of what Google like to put in their index.

Since the Cebu SEO contest is about to end this Monday which is a day away, I decided to finally end efforts to push an entry to the top 3 spots. I just want to prove something is there behind Google and the way big G wants to display its results to the people. This is some achievement on my part because I have seen how it affects everything else.

Cebu SEO Contest

I just made a short title for this blog to see where this leads it. I want to know if there is more to this blog than just for SEO outsourcing keyword as it now transforms into the Cebu SEO contest Blog. This transformation can be a good breakthrough but let's just see. This is intended to make a few things clear as I have done this twice just to accommodate a new stats for the Cebu SEO contest

In the recently concluded SEO contest, Busby SEO Challenge, it is said that very little targeted text can help a site rank high for a keyword in the same contest. Also the diversity of the links help a lot but since it is really very hard to rank high now, this will serve as a last ditch effort to topple the top 10 pages and see how it will go this time. Cebu SEO contest has really taught me a lot more than what I expected.

Sheilla May Baes - Scandalous and Judgemental Blogger - Wrong Blogging Choice

Just the other day, someone, some blogger blogged about me. I took a look at the profile of the that blogger and Googled for the blog until I arrived at the picture below which says that Pwengbee, Piyoz and Shiela Mae Baes is where the scandalous, pretentious, judgmental blog post and wrong choice of blogging came. The three names are one and the same... Well, at least it seems but only because the image below tells and I do not want to make any conclusions and make the wrong impression. I want transparency here and I also want to be clear that I will not be entertaining any comments here so just to avoid making the issue bigger, no more no less.

I do not know how to describe this person, this blogger who seemingly claims to know so much ethics in blogging after this incident that she initiated. Just let me lead you to the blog, this scandalous, pretentious and judgmental blogger who picks on people and blogs about them of wrong impressions and claims. I want this blog post to be clear about some things so as to not read or sound bias to anyone, not even myself unlike the post that I read from this blogger.

Judging people is not a good choice for a blog post and answering questions using
maybees just to hide the truth is not a crime but a self-centered effort to deny justice. Not helping the aggravated using those denials and maybees is just as worse as committing the crime itself. The rule of law as well as the rule of the above says it...and we all know it. This is fact and not some assumption.

  • How would you call a person who breaks a rule? Here are the exact words of that blogger: "Rules can be broken but I broke it in a good way". Since when can rules be broken and people can still be on the right side?
  • How would you call a blogger who denies facts at first using "maybe" as a word and then admits it later on?
  • How would you call a blogger who talks of being humble when in a post that this blogger makes, he/she mentions about people and judging them with words like "Yeah, I admit I have done such a crime but not that worse as you did (I hope)".
  • How would you call a blogger who makes his/her own images using people's names as if concluding or trying to make people believe on something that is not?
  • humility? Does this blogger really know the meaning of the word humility and being humble when he/she says that "Ever since, I blog about any issue that is bothering in my mind. I mention names, etc, whatever that’s in my mind"? Poor ethics...It all falls unto you.

So, tell me, are the words, judgmental, scandalous and pretentious not the perfect words for Sheilla May Baes blogger? Just asking and it's really up to you to judge the content, the blog and the comments of this person. You will find in the URL below

All these started in the captivating Capiz SEO contest and you can follow the conversation in order to understand about the scandalous blogger. You will learn that this is no accusation but more of a wrong blogging choice. The blogger helped amplify an issue that has been long settled (it seems). And it seems the blog post that talked about me and others by this character is picking on people. Is it a normal thing to pick on people and teach them about humility....humility? Just learn by reading. You judge and you make the conclusion, not me. My words are just mine and not for any of you to believe in.

here's the conversation:




The letters were made bold, underlined and with color just for the sole purpose of letting my readers have an easy way of reading my post. I want them to understand all about this so they can make the best and unbiased judgment and conclusion. The same reason why I am providing the whole source of the 2 blogs (resource) where they can read about the whole story and again, for transparency. I did not make my own images to justify my claims nor my theories here, just plain old image as they are from the web, edited by cropping no pretentious images connecting people with each other when in fact they are not...

This blog post was made as a sole independent opinion of the blog owner himself and not in any way for any purpose but rather for revealing the truth regarding an issue of wrong blogging choice. Names have to be provided so readers will understand who this post is talking about.

Images were provided as necessary only to support facts and not claims nor theories for bad sense bragging. No offense to those involved because this is only for the purpose of clearing the mind of people who knows the owner of this blog.

I will not be entertaining any comments here so just to avoid making the issue bigger, no more no less.

Leeching Enormous Bandwidth - "The Google Killer" Cuil is Funded at $ 33 Million Bucks

The words "Google Killer" I got from the ever popular techcrunch blog today and Don wrote on his article just the other day. I bet my fellow webmasters and SEOs here in the Philippines don't know anything yet about the said story of killing a site rendering you hopeless with an enormous upsurge of bandwidth eating by an indexing bot from the so-called Cuil.

Where this Cuil came from is still on an issue of debate by some of those who got hit by the said indexing bot that attempts to kill your site with the use of an enormous power of bringing in bot traffic that will eat your bandwidth and literally kill your site rendering like what those 404 can do or the "bandwidth exceeded" messages. Hence, this Cuil is called now as the "
Google Killer". Restricting its index in your site might help a bit but does not assure you that you will get saved from its killing claws. For those of my fellow SEOs here in the Philippines, I would like to have something really early for you guys to do when this happens to your site. Don't just hypothesize, this is the answer and you should know what to do.

In case you don't know what best to do, there is a Forum Thread on The Admin Zone showcasing a tutorial on this issue of the
"Killing Bandwidth" by Cuil. If you haven't met the killing bandwidth by Cuil, I bet it will just take a few more days to get there. The world has seen its power. Cuil's method of indexing according to some people who have experienced it were said to be of an amateur profile. Only random slaps were recorded by the site owners who got hit to arrive at this estimate of amateurish tendencies by the punisher, Cuil bot.

The only glory that we, the site owners however still got a hold on to is that the said killer bots still obey robots.txt.
Cuil's operating manager, James Akers had an explanation to all that is happening and his reply can be found here. He said that the Twiceler bot, the bot that crawls sites is actually in a state of something still experimental and that they are willing to exclude any site an owner wishes to be excluded upon request to them.

There were also claims about Cuil bots by Akers that there are some bots pretending to be Cuil's but were not actually it and so to make sure about this issue, he told in his reply and explanation that consulting the IP address could resolve doubts if you have the killer bot or the impostor.
