Blogging Apps and Plug Ins

I have never imagined I would indulge in using blogging applications and plug-ins on some blogs I write into. First it is simply because I am not sure how they work and second is that I do not have the time to play around with these usability applications. Third is simply because I do not know the possible effects that these applications could get my blogs in to.

Now that I know, I'd like to put special mention of one of the best Wordpress plug in that I believe has the best use for blogs and bloggers. That is none other than related posts plug in. I love the use of this special app as it leads the visitors to some of the best places where they can find good information without having to leave your blog at all.

Another is that because it minimizes the need to link within some other related posts we have and saves you time to go looking for them. The plug in automatically looks for he related posts and embeds them right below your post which is just the ideal place to find for your readers.

Internet In the Philippines and Online Business

I have been on the constant watch about the latest development of the internet here in the Philippines where reside and work as a freelance SEO and link builder. I also own a few online business but what strikes me the last few months of this year.

I was on the constant watch on my Google Analytics account with many of the sites as well as client sites that I work on and I must admit that there have been so many big changes that happened with respect to the Philippine internet. Users have grown so significantly that you will surely notice that if you have a local site, that the local visitors have greatly increased with local keywords.

I would like to anticipate on this and start of with a few smaller experiments of my own with different niches that I am looking to enter in the future. This is to come up with a business model that will do the trick for me and my websites as well as clients in the local online market. With this growth, Philippines SEO will surely be a bigger venue for many local businesses as well.

Google Caffeine New Algorithm I Love It

It's been such a very long time since I haven't written in this blog of mine but so far, a lot of my time has been focused on trying to learn more about how Google pushes the websites in their results pages. A couple of months ago, I learned that Google Caffeine was introduced but Many local SEO in the Philippines would not go for it. For whatever reason, I don't know.

All I know is that because the new Google algorithm doesn't seem to favor their websites of business they own. Well, so far, for me it's been so much beneficial as 1 business website alone has given me 20 times more than what it used to earn and I am glad that if you just persevere to understand what Google has been trying to give you, you won't really have a problem at all.

After all, there is nothing we or any of us can do about it. Google plays God once again and it wants us to bear in mind that if we don't update ourselves with whatever it has for the sake of the users, there is no way we will succeed in any business model online that we engage in.

UFC 103 Live - Test Post

This is just a test post for the upcoming UFC 103 live streaming search for people who do not live anywhere near the United States where the grand even will happen. It will be live broadcast September 19, 2oo9 in the U.S. and 20 in other countries (ET/PT).

A few colleagues were already on top but I would like to test what happens when this post is published or for what it can to in linking to a webpage dedicated solely for the UFC MMA fight happening tomorrow.

It will be a fight between Belfort and Franklin. There will be other interesting undercards in the fight when it happens but one thing is for sure, those who do not have their cable tv or the live stream for UFC 103 will resort to finding channels that feature the said fight.

The 2009 nurse exam results or popularly know as the nursing board exam (NLE) has been released the other day by the (PRC) Professional Regulation Commission. The results were not as impressive as it should be based on the turnout of percentage of the nurses who passed the said board exam.

Philippines Link Builders and Philippines as Top Outsourcing Venue

There are so many great link builders in the Philippines as much as there are so many link builders in Asia which is a prime destination for Link Building Outsourcing jobs from the United States as well as from other European countries.

I work freelance as a professional link builder for a freelance SEO Outsourcing and search engine marketing firm. I've worked my way through the years and have committed mistakes somewhere along the way but it has made me a better link builder as with the series of self experimenting using all resources I have with my job as a freelance link builder here in the Philippines.

I have worked with different niche and different people and websites I cannot account all of because they are too many. Some I have been able to show what I can do for their sites but some never gave me the chance to continue for their own reasons.

While some online business owners understand that there is no magic in SEO as well as in link building for a business website, those who know are lucky to see it the other way around. I love the art of link building and sometimes it even drives to see results at the quickest time buy somewhere along the way, I have proven that there is no shortcut to this job.

Link building is an evolving process by which you need to understand what you have to present to the search engines when they try to look at what your efforts are all about. You do it fast and you loose everything. You take link building too slow and your competition will eat you up.

So what does it really take to see what works and what doesn't? Well, it only takes you and time to find out and I am glad that I have it all with me plus my perseverance in learning everyday while sitting in front of my computer almost 16 hours of my life. I love the art of link building and this is where I will excel from the others who are in the competition. At least here in the Philippines where I work.

I Never Imagined Twitter Could Be A Road Full of Traffic

I've seen today a Twitter account from a friend that got snapped out. It was a PR 4 profile page and I bet that it took time to earn that trust from the search engines only to get the account snapped in the wink of an eye. I wonder what happened back there?

I never thought that Twitter could ban accounts just like that knowing that there are so many spammers out there trying to explore what they could out of the advantages that this social bookmarking site does.

First, it never came to me that there is indeed quality traffic that could come from this site so even if I have a very old account there, I never had the interest to follow on accounts and allow others to follow me.

I've always wanted to have a secret life using social bookmarking sites and Twitter is one of them. In fact, I really have used it just for a few tries. It was something like 5 or less than 10 tweets all in all and I never came back again to the site.

Not until I learned the plus factor that it could possibly bring to my fence. Now, I am still on a process of trying to see some different and posting one by one at a time and trying to make intervals to see what happens next.

I hope to find out more soon in a month or two and see if I could possibly post here my tweets. That is of course if I like it. Social media marketing is a great way to learn more about traffic generation. Twitter is not excempted.

Free Bloggerized Wordpress Themes

I found out today that many blogspot blogs have been using bloggerized Wordpress Themes. I was surprised as I have never roamed around for so long to find out that there are so many theme addicts that already use these bloggerized themes which are originally WP themes.

It's a great move and a new amazing innovation although I am not so sure if others will agree. I just found out today also and I was surprised that some of our Wordpress themes although there are totally free to download were already available in bloggerized versions.

Well, I can't blame the person who bloggerized the Free Wordpress Themes we have because after all they are all for free to use and download. The good thing is that the one who took our templates still used the footer links that we used to have. Thanks for that.

How Does Google Read Blog Comments?

I have been playing around with some of the best ways to exploit what Google allows based only on my experience. This is because we all know that it would take all the best resources and SEOs to know which is truly acceptable by Google. This time, I am asking myself through a series of experiments how Google reads blog comments and can a blog owner really exploit these comments to his blog's advantage?

I actually came up with this question a long time ago and this time, I have the time to make an experiment, I will make sure that I learn something else other than what others fail to learn or at least observe how blog comments can be an effective way to gain further search engine importance for that page you are trying to manipulate.

I am sure that Google won't allow the blog author to use these comments to his advantage, this is the reason why Wordpress today have the "nofollow" attribute in their comments. But I am also sure that there are certain small ways we can take advantage of our own resources. In this case, I am after learning about blog comments and how I can make them useful to my own advantage in a SEO field or point of view.

Wikipedia is Now a 5,000-Page Book

I'm not so sure about this news (heven't seen it) as it is the first time that I heard about it. Wikipedia, the world's largest online encyclopedia is now turned into a 5,000-page book.

According to a resource that I just read today, the Wikipedia, a voluntarily written online book by all the registered users all over the world has been turned into perhaps the most numbered page book with 5,000 pages and sized at 1 foot and 7 inches thick.

What's The Future of Torrent?

So what could really be the future of torrent in your own opinion? With today's user's requirement for a bigger disc space and today's generation liking so much to keep those big video and image files and websites and Google in to flash what could be the next topic about the internet.

Well, we all know how much torrent freaks have eaten with respect to the world' bandwidth. We also know that there is no way we can stop torrent from coming in to the next generation. I remember reading an article about torrent eating up all the speed of the internet and eating up all the bandwidth there is... little by little, we cannot seem to avoid the inevitable - bandwidth allocation loss.

I am not really so sure about this idea, I am not even the torrent geek that others are and in fact I do not fully understand all about it so what now? What could really be the future of the internet users with torrent unstoppably getting on the way?

Exploring Free Classifieds and Ranking Your Ads in the SERPs

We all know that the biggest factor that propels any webpage to appear on the top of the SERPs is link building and the quality of links pointing to the same webpage you are trying to rank a keyword for. With this in mind, the first step we usually do is to do the basic - get a few links from social bookmarking sites, directory submissions, blog business reviews, blog comments and forum links.

But what most of us have come disregard is the fact that free classifieds were one of today's most loved pages by the searh engines, We've seen how Craigslist, Kiiji, olx and more come to life in almost any long tail keywords as well as major keywords today. For sure they can't be just some coincidence.

Here in the Philippines, for example, what webmasters have observed is the use of free classifieds in trying to rank a webpage to the top of the SERPs success however is measured in terms of promotions that you will do with the Ad page that you made.

Imagine having a link in there and getting on top of the search for multiple keywords including the long tail ones that never even know you can rank for? I have done it myself and I know that this one works. This is actually not just a form of SEO but more on search engine marketing or SEM.

Eriuqs Spires Healthy Recreation: My Link Building Arena

Soon it will be through, the challenge dubbed as Eriuqs Spires Healthy Recreation is just a couple of days away from ending and I am in a hurry to seek the top position with an entry to this race.

I haven't been able to do anything for more than 3 weeks for an entry but today will decided what else there is to do for me and what else the search engines could possibly like. In the future ordeals and jobs in link building that I will do, I hope to learn from this experience and I hope I may be able to apply what the result of this last move will be.

I am looking in to something else other than just the conventional link building which we all know could be the key to any webpage ranking high in the search engine results pages. I hope to find out if there is something more than just the links themselves or the timing by which they were applied to push a webpage up in the results with a target keyword.

This time I want to find out more than just link building but a type of SEO linking and link structure as well as link placement and anchor text diversity. I believe all these will play a key to ranking webpages but only faster if you can do it with the perfect timing. That is what I am working on right now.

I have seen so far and have joined in so many challenges in the past and lost some but won some. I may not have topped it but the thing is I learn more each and every time I get involved with such challenges. This time, I want to find out if I can do more to push my entry to the Eriuqs Spires Heathy Recreation.

Link Structure Optimization SEO Experiment is a Success

The reason to gaining top rankings once again in the ongoing Tnomeralc Web Design Toys seo challenge is having 5 indexed pages in Yahoo. This means that getting that many pages indexed in Yahoo knowing that it is only a single post inner page is equivalent to strength in the position that I currently hold.

This is a very rare occasion and I know now that what I did in the past few days even without doing anything for 2 days did pay off. I was in to link structure experiment all the time because I have never stopped trying to decipher whatever advantage I can get from the search engines using only free available tools I have. I'm glad it paid off for me.

They may be just basic tools and basic knowledge used along but for one thing, they are all effective in my quest for more knowledge under a strict implementation of link building techniques that I know. I alone is doing link structure optimization for this challenge. I know for a fact that I cannot fail if only I give more effort for an entry but what I found out was even more convincing and more compelling with cutting edge precision. Proves that you don't have to starve and stress yourself out just to attain high rankings in the SERPs.

Timing is everything with link building and SEO. Establishing a good linking structure on the other hand will give you the advantage over your competition. In this experiment, I learned that you do not have to stress yourself out trying to build thousands of links after all. All you need is the perfect timing strong interlinking of your pages. Although I haven't perfected my process and my link structure optimization using offpage sources, I am looking in to getting to know how the search engines work for a webpage using links.

This challenge has brought me into new horizons and it has taught me that there is a lot of resource out there left unexplored and used in the wrong process of chronology. Timing and perfect structure of links will be my key to maintain this ranking right now while working for more knowledge.

Will Google Buy Twitter?

The news is up today on Google taking up talks with buying Twitter. This is not confirmed but according WebPro News e-mail to me today, Google will no longer want to talk about buying the birdie social networking site.

So what's next? There unconfirmed allegations and rumors that Google is building its own Social Networking site now. Let us see what comes up next in beta for Google after they have implemented their new blogger through mobile and e-mail posting option which is already available today in your blogger dashboard.

Google Crawlers - Is it Random or Scheduled?

No one knows the exact split second that a Google crawler visits a webpage or website. While for some, they have the clue using analytics data and metrics, still no one can conclude if that visit occurred exactly the time they though it did.

The same data tells of other analytics metrics and for this reason we couldn't have the exact analysis of out site details with respect to optimization of campaign results. All we will ever have are rough estimates or at least the closest possible data with which we can base all out outputs and the result of our inputs as well.

I am taking today for example, the fact that I am under an experiment on analysis of data as to what time or when exactly Google crawlers visit a webpage. What factors will trigger these visits for Google to be able to make their updates on their index.

The experiment that I am talking about is the soon to end Tnomeralc Web Designt Toys keyword. I have a lot of weird assumptions as to how Google sees the links pointing to a website for the simple fact that when I changed my Title tag of the home page of a blog, Google immediately sees it upon an update post.

But what happens today as I take a look at the results of the updated index, I saw my page ranking higher thant it used to knowing that I did not do anything to promote that page targeted to the keyword Tnomeralc Web Design Toys.

I saw that when I ranked #2 today from more than a week at # 4, that my title tag was the old one that I used in the home page. How come that Google allowed me to be on top # 2 slot without doing much on link building and all the while ranking that page higher 2 slots than its 1 week original position? Does that mean that Google somehow sees the links even if they are not part of the home page where it can be found.

Does this mean that Google allows constantly updated pages to help push a webpage further up even when the link is already deep? What now? Old title tag back as indexed but higher rankings could only mean one thing - old links do matter a lot in ranking a webpage higher in the results pages.

This for me also means that the more a page is updated with new content, the higher chances that the links to which that page can be found may harness the effects of a delayed upsurge of link therefore making Google see the old version of the webpage while ranking it a little bit higher than it used to.

IE 8 Launched and Hacked

Right after the initial launch of Internet Explorer 8, the fast update to MSN's browser, it was hacked. The buzz came out almost right after the incident happened. Even faster than the browser itself and faster than any search engine can crawl new content.

Anyway, I didn't actually see what happened or how the browser IE 8 looked like the moment it was hacked but for one, the buzz came out quicker than fire spreads. It made me remember when Google's Chrome was launched and then afterwards, some bug bugged the browser.

My question is, what's been happening with the security of our browsers these days?

MSN and Yahoo Search Weblog are in the Official List that Google Blog Reads

Yes, it's official as I visit Google Blog today that perhaps the most popular blog in the internet also visits and reads MSN Search Weblog. I saw it in their official list of blogs tagged as "what we're reading" in the Google Blog sidebar.

It's great to know that somehow, somewhere along the way that Google gets a non-biased read of the official MSN Search Weblog too and I know whatever they have there is not so bad, in fact, it helps Google patrons to get a glimpse of what is in there somehow with the use of traffic from their official blog.

Yahoo Search Blog is also in the sidebar list as well as I have all 3 great blogs in two of my blogs out there. I love reading all these 3 blogs once in a while because it helps me get a kick off the day and get inspired that something good is happening in the search engines all the time.

I do not know how long MSN and Yahoo blogs were in the official Google Blog sidebar but one thing I am sure of, this is a nice way of telling everyone that a share of the pie deserved by each is a necessity today.

This is not about SEO and this is not about blogs or blogging... It is a simple way of telling us that service is on the way to improve universal search.

MSN Partners with Multiply to Transfer MSN Groups

I received an e-mail regarding my MSN Groups but I didn't bother about it because I was expecting that MSN, just like their last e-mail to me prompted me to update my Remote DBA Groups, otherwise, it will be closed. Since the last e-mail did not mention any about it, I didn't bother take a look.

Today I was surprised when I visited my MSN Groups, it was gone and this message is all that's left - "As we first announced on October 23 2008, the MSN Groups service has closed.

If you would like to create a new group, we have established a partnership with Multiply - an online group and media sharing service that is tailored to the needs of larger groups. If you would like to create a small group of less than 1000 members, please visit Windows Live Groups.

Does this mean that Multiply will grow ever stronger with respect to its networks? I bet yes but on the other hand, with this move, MSN gave an alternative which it is not used to - Windows Live Groups. While Yahoo froze the salary increase for their employees to channel funds to improve their engine, MSN is little by little moving on its own to partner with some of the greatest and probably biggest social networks in the online arena. This is great for all of us.

WP Theme Technique by Eli

Eli used the Wordpress Theme technique and it was effective. I have been on the move for 2 days now but I realized there is something more than just the WP theme use. It must've been because of the Kangaroo SEO.

I laughed on this specific SEO style and I must admit that maybe, just maybe, it still works for quite some time. All we can do is to watch out for the movement now. The links poured down was good but it could also shut you down with the wrong timing and wrong numbers.

Tnomeralc Web Design Toys race brought in so much fear for some because some of the best in the business have come together to battle against the newbies but I don't believe this is not an issue of who has the edge over experience. This is all about resources and perseverance, so for those who want to win this one, just continue.

After 5 Days Without SEO - Tnomeralc Web Design Toys Challenge

It's been 5 days that I did no SEO nor link building for the official entry that this blog had in to a race. The main keyword involved is "Tnomeralc Web Design Toys" and while others had their heydey ranking on the first page, this blog is on the third.

Anyway, this is something new for me and I am testing some method of technical blogging to see through some new ways to battle Google penalty which has been all around for those who are exploiting in to artificial link building.

I believe that it is soon going to be a little bit harder to rank for the pages and keywords we are targeting but I also believe that I will soon come up with the answer to that. I have seen how Google penalized pages and sites that exploit social bookmarkings. Some of them have even turned the dofollow attributes in their links into nofollow.

SEO Philippines Forum Will Soon Transfer to a New Backyard

It is officially confirmed that SEO Philippines Forum is transferring to a new backyard. The announcement was made by the SEOPh founder himself, Marc Macalua in one of the threads within the SEO Link building categories in a sticky post.

According to the founder of SEOPh, there will be other guys who have the caliber to help him manage the new arena for SEOs in the Philippines to thrive on. I wonder how the process is going to be and I am not even sure if there is anything going on like if the said domain is for sale at$000,000000 or not.

Earlier, there were rumors that the official website of SEOPh was for sale but the founder did confirm in another thread slapping the rumor with, SEOPh domain is not for sale. Well, people believed him but for me, I cannot see any reason why the said forum has to be transferred to a new one except for a fact that according to the founder, the aim is to make a better forum for SEOs here in the Philippines.

I am not really sure about that reason or if it is enough for all the members to accept but if indeed there is any other doubt, no one is sure about it or about what's going to happen soon. I just hope this move is for the better of all or at least of the majority.

Social Bookmarkings Exploitation is Dead

A lot of speculations have been roaming around in the SEO and link building industry about the big advantage in the use of social bookmarking websites. This is in helping sites rank higher in the SERPs faster and accurately.

True, I have even experienced it myself but everything has changed because Google finally found out how to filter sites that exploit the use of these social bookmarking sites to their own advantage. This is something new from my personal experience and I admit this is a great new learning from me.

Although I cannot enclose more details to confirm this claim, I'm pretty sure that there are a lot of you out there who have experienced it also. If you are wondering why, then, this post is just the answer to your questions.

If you are still willing to try it out yourself, I guess you'll have to find out about it the hard way but I would not encourage, nor advice you to do it if you want to retain the importance and trust the Google is giving your site. This is finally the end to social bookmarking exploits of spammers out there. Social bookmarking exploitation is dead just like how Sphinn junks spammers.

The Microsites Linking Explained by SEOmoz

As we all know, microsites have always played a very important role for search engine marketers as well as SEOs out there who are up to promoting client and personal sites for ranking them. Although there are other ways possible in passing our link juice to a webpage or website, somehow, when I watched that video that Rand Fishkin showed in his Friday Whiteboards, I immediately rushed to a few sites and thought it would be worth taking a look at.

From the very simple explanation, Rand Fishkin of SEOmoz is right. It really is very easy to understand and it never came to my mind that this can be something interesting to discuss myself because I have always believed that using microsites to link build and promote a business site or a major website is the right thing to do.

It is really very simple, because since when have microsite been better than actually getting linked in diverse anchor texts and structure from different domains? In the example in the video, he mentioned specifically those who are taking time to develop somewhat a sub blog to a major business website.

There what the SEO or the search engine marketer does is to put hos/her articles or those contents that are a little more unneeded in a blog (ex. [major site] and[subdomain site]) and then what you do is you try to pass out the link juice from that blog which we all know usually get linked to from other sites and usually used for link bait and then give a link to the major site we have using the anchor text that we want to promote our major site.

According to Rand Fishkin, it is actually wrong to perceive that you are passing the same link juice and trust that your sub domain/blog to your major business site that way but instead, you are passing a link that is not in any way part of the sites that are linking to your blog and making it strongly trusted by the search engines.

What's best to do to counter this misbelief is to build direct links to your major website business instead of trying to channel those links using a sub domain like a blog or something from a single domain. Remember that links coming from different domains would rather be better than link from the same domain which in this case happens to be your subdomain blog.

Busby SEO Test l Unfinished Business

The opening of New Year gave the "Busby SEO Test" participants a new vision, more or less to make a few more tweaks to the link building and SEO of their respective entries. I have joined myself the first Busby SEO Challenge but failed to come up with the perfect plan to retain a ranking that reached up to 4th place. We were, as a team all reallt just playing let everybody know that we can compete when the sponsors decided to take our entry out for some rules that were changed later.

Now a fellow Filipino, is leading the race to the Busby SEO Test challenge I would like to wish him the best of all the best to be able to retain his entry to the said challenge. I want to help in my own way but I am afraid that I will just ruin the more, the effort that I am to make at this point of the said SEO test. Instead, this is just a post that hopes to lift the spirits of other participants from the Philippines. Eli, Whin, Bleuken, Gary and others. Go for the top spot guys!!!

We are hoping that this Busby SEO Test SEO contest will bring more opportunities to Filipinos who are in the service in SEO industry and we hope you all take the top 10 spots and if there is anything I can do to help you guys, just PM me a specific step to do so no strings left hanging if ever I will do anything for your entries. GOOD LUCK TO ALL BUSBY SEO TEST PARTICIPANTS.

Major Security Problem in Internet Explorer

There has been a reported major security problem in Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser. This major breach is said to be a major problem because it could lead to an attempt to steal your personal identity as well as passwords which we all know could mean big problem both financially and web-based.

This is a major problem to consider and because of this, experts say that people using IE is strongly advised to take actions to transfer using another browser in the meantime until the problem is closed and cured totally.

For those who are still interested to go on using Internet Explorer, "it is also strongly advised by Microsoft to make some changes to the browser settings by looking into the Tools - Internet Options tab and then switching your browser settings security settings to a windows user account with limited rights to change a PC's settings".

With IE 7 or 8 on Vista, turn the protected mode and also take actions to make sure that your computer is fully loaded with protection using the latest and updated anti-virus and spyware software.
