Overcrowded at Star City Philippines Theme Park

Once again, the holiday symptom is in the air at Star City Philippines theme park this Christmas day. It has been that way since I couldn't remember anymore because of the fact that all families and kids and children who got their money gifts from ninongs and ninangs (godparents). Kids who got the money to get in the theme park all flooded there because they all thought that it would be an enjoyable experience but they all failed their own expectations simply because Star City was overcrowded.

This is the scene over at Star City Philippines amusement park for so many years now and I am witness to this scene for about 2 years now since I personally worked inside in an amusement park tenant, Tom's World as the only technician maintenance of amusement machines and rides there.

Just for a very valuable tip to those who are planning to go to Star City Philippines theme park, never or at least avoid going to the park on holidays like Christmas and New year. The park is overcrowded and full of people and it will take you about 15 to 30 minutes just to fall in line and wait for a single ride to take.

Pacquiao vs Hatton Fight is On

Pacquiao vs Hatton is finally ongoing and is scheduled to go through by May 2, 2009 if the negotionations pursue as planned according to ESPN blog I read today. "It's just a matter of time until a Ricky Hatton-Manny Pacquiao megafight is finalized." as it reads in the blog I found today which means that there are indeed ongoing negotiations between the two promoters, Bob Arum and Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer, also the promoter of Hatton.

If the plan goes according to talks from each camp, the Pacquiao camp and Hatton camp, the fight is planned to take place where there is neutral venue and the initial talks said it will most likely be in Las Vegas or MGM Grand in the Thomas and Mack Center. If this happens, this will surely be a big bang for Manny Pacquiao who settled all doubts after defeating Oscar Dela Hoya by TKO last December 6.

This fight, the Pacquiao vs Hatton bout hopes to be one of the most promising start for the coming new year and if Pacquiao wins this one, there will surely be more big fights waiting for him for the Manny Pacquiao vs Floyd Mayweather fight.

Wordpress Changing Their Interface

Just more than a week ago, Wordpress changed their interface and I must admit that I didn't like this change at all. Of all the upgrade and changes that Wordpress has been in to this is probably the worst for me just the other day.

The change rendered me totally frustrated and annoyed at the navigation within the blog dashboard. It left me almost a few minutes clueless to where to go and head just to edit the comments section. I couldn't find the approve comment button anymore. This is something like watching Twilight the movie with a pirated DVD, nothing is ever clear.

I just hope that Wordpress will receive the same reaction as I personally don't have the time to make a research today about the different reasons to hate the new Wordpress interface. This is like SEO without link building.

Srednarb Promotional Items

We just launched a brand on the Srednarb Promotional Items Concepts page we have today and I would just like to make a short post announcing about the opening of a new page.

Cebu is Prime Tourist Destination in Philippines by 2009

Yes, I bet Cebu will be the prime destination for tourism this coming year 2009 and this is because if you look at the search in the internet for different keyphrases, Cebu is there. The Cebu car rental industry in fact have been earning quite a lot of good and positive response from tourists who visit the place each year and come back the year after.

Professional business websites have even been up to serve tourists in different fields like tourist guide websites, car rental websites, hotel websites, lodging houses, restaurants and more. This alone is enough to prove that tourist interest is focused more in Cebu province more than other provinces in the Philippines.

I Also Want to Watch Twilight the Movie Online for Free

I am also one of those looking to watch Twilight the Movie online for free but I cannot find a decent streaming video out there even in torrents. I will try my luck in a few moments or perhaps a few more days if I can get to see where others are leading to see and watch the Twilight Movie online.

This is only because of the reason that I cannot go outside to see the Twilight movie due to heavy rains today and I decided to go looking for some information where I can watch one online because I heard a lot of buzz for other people who found a decent rips on the movie. Although I would not be suggesting that others follow, still I want to see if there is any lead to this.

I am one of those really eager to have a look at the Twilight Movie because the trailer alone is very enticing and it looks really promising. I have the Twilight Saga in 4 book issues here at home because my daughter as well as my sister who had her own hardbound copy of the Twilight Saga Series of books. Now, we have possession of Twilight book 1 - Twilight, book 2 - New Moon, book 3 - Eclipse and book 4 - Breaking Dawn.

Stylish Women Perfume and Gadgets

Women have always been known for being stylish and choosy in their perfume, gadgets and everything that they attached themselves with. From personal to private stuff, women have always had a taste that somehow makes them one of the hardest to please with the use of gifts or gift ideas. but being stylish as they are and hard to please when you give them things and stuff, they can be pretty easy to remedy. the secret ingredient for choosing the best gifts for women is having choices and what best to have one than going straight for comparison sites out there.

For example, we all know that girls do like jewelries but it makes them a little bit appreciative if you give them a great perfume. It surely brings out the smile in their faces if you do that. So the choice here is to go shop for a perfume. That which you know has the cozy taste they want and stylish brand they'd go for and can't resist. Fitness is also one of the best ways to put a smile in a woman's face and when we talk about it it makes them a little bit more excited. So probably you can go look for something that will make your woman happy with fitness gadgets. makes them feel a little bit sexy with such gift ideas.

Some would prefer stylish gadgets and with gadgets, there is the latest hip and trendy one, the iPod. women surely go crazy over them especially if you are planning to give one this holiday season. It's one of the best gift ideas and could be a good choice if you shop around in a comparison site where you have all the best choices in the world from amazing prices to the best brands and the hippest stylish gadgets in multiple varieties. If you're looking for anything perfect, I personally suggest that you come to your nearest and most convenient comparison site where you can choose perfectly. I'm an in the internet industry and I know what works best as a SEO and an internet guy.

YouTube Goes Wide Screen HD

YouTube is now on HD and available for those who have their high technology PC monitors at home and in the office. This new high-end development in the video streaming technology is perhaps not the first of its kind but is surely one of the best indicators that YouTube, the Google-owned video streaming and uploading service is up to some really good service both for all its users as well as all the SEO webmasters and bloggers out there who are looking up to the new service.

In the latest video on the Pubcon in the Las Vegas, it is part of the presentation of Bruce Clay, a well known search engine marketing consultant that Google is looking to develop some sort of a new algorithm that cannot be just set aside. The reason for this is because he has personally seen some great changes in the last quarter of this year as the biggest and most advanced search engine in the internet business today is our for something else this coming year 2009 for all SEOs out there who have been little by little resorting to different systems of analyzing and bringing traffic to clients and personal websites.

I hope that Bruce Clay is just right about his assumptions as this occurrence will bring in more professionals in the field of SEO and SEM or search engine optimization and search engine marketing.

See sample video presentation of Bruce Clay's "ranking is dead" in wide screen or HD below.

Watching TV in My New LCD TV and PC Monitor

I just bought last week an LCD TV Monitor which is at the same time a PC monitor that I use for working online. This new LCD technology added up some comfort in my work as a SEO and a blogging fanatic because my very own which I just bought gives me the advantage to write on my blogs while looking at what's latest in the internet today.

Next year, I am looking forward to buy myself a new laptop computer with a high-end digital camera where I can post directly the pictures that I want to use and have them taken outright when I need it. This will be double as an achievement the I've always been looking to achieve next year as 2008 passes away. A new aim and a new year will be best for me if I can accomplish these targets as soon as possible.

This will offer to me, not just convenience but more of what I always look forward to achieve in my internet life and personal life as well. This could also mean double the convenience and double the time that it will take me to do my work in the most convenient venue which is just in my desk where my LCD monitor and digital camera is. Imagine that I do not even have to go anywhere else to be able to do my hobby of writing to my blog and working in the web if I get my dream laptop computer by next year.

By the way, there is an interesting place in the internet today that you might be interested to visit and buy your LCD TV needs as well as your laptop computer and digital camera just in case. This is SAVEBUCKETS.COM - a comparison site where e offers and prices are simply amazing for choosing the best deals just before you buy anything you need. Take it from the name itself - save buckets!

My Daughter's School Yearbook

We just received my daughter's school yearbook which was supposed to be distributed 2 years ago. It was quite a very tiring wait and caused us to forget all about it even if we actually paid for it in full including the tuition fees at Espiritu Santo Parochial School. Imagine this is a private school and yet it took them 2 years before we received the yearbook of my daughter who is now almost my height after all those years?

Is this really how it is when we talk about yearbook in the Philippines schools. I remember when it was my time where I studied in a public school that I had the same experience but I know that it did not take our school 2 years to have the graduate yearbook printed. My God!!! This is really very tiring for us.

PR 3 of Cebu SEO blog is Back at Last

This blog, the Cebu SEO Blog lost its PR 3 a few weeks ago and I don't know the reason why except that I had this blog left over in terms of link building but I make sure that I post here at least once a week. What I did was to edit all my links and took out the footer link that I put in the HTML of this template. Google must've not liked it putting your home page link in their template footer.

I also removed a few links that I forgot to remove after this blog landed 4th in a SEO contest in one of the widgets. That could have triggered Google to put back my PR 3. I just want to say thank you to Google and to my effort in seeking where I've done wrong to receive such penalty for that matter. I also learned a few good lessons back there while doing things to get the PR back.

Feeds Submission for SEO

I have always thought for a long time that there is really no need to apply RSS syndication system and submit my blog feed to the whole of the web and make it available for everyone to syndicate. At least that's the way I thought about it for years until I have personally seen how effective they can be to help each of my posts rank and get seen by the search engines as easy as everyone would like to.

For anyone who think the same as I did a few years back then, I would suggest that you follow the suggestion I want to make you realize with, submit your content and make it available in as little time as you can and you will see the difference. If you would like to try to find out for yourself, then, welcome to the club of the lonely waiting people for their blog posts to find its right place in the search results in as little time as you like it to appear there. Submit your RSS/Atom/XML feeds now.

Beware of Fake Malicious Wordpress Blogs

I read today from WordPress News about some roaming fake WP blogs. They are said to be malicious blogs pretending to be or seemingly from WordPress but they are not. According to the WordPress News that I read today, the site name is Wordprezs.Org.

The site obviously took advantage of the misspelling of the URL and they also spoofed the official WordPress site. As Users, you are all urged in the news to pay close attention to the words and URL that you type in your address bar all the time to avoid getting lost in the said malicious site.

The Problem with SEO Contests Using Static Sites

This is just my very own opinion and in no other terms related to whatever SEO contest is out there for a race today. I would just like to burst out a small but may be worthy opinion here regarding SEO contests like what this blog has been in to recently. Anyway, my URL alone tells it that this blog used to be for the sole purpose of generating a relevant entry to a contest where this very same blog went to the 4th place but got no prize at all because the prizes were only awarded up to the third postion.

Let us head to the point of what the title tells it. Using static sites for an SEO contest and sponsoring it might just not work for the purpose. Why? One of the reasons why I don't approve of any SEO contest (in my own opinion) with the use of a static site is that this will only amplify tardiness with webmasters. We all know that a webmaster or allow me to call them SEO is usually laiden with a lot of jobs and other workd aside from their own sites to handle ang take care of and we all know about this fact.

This being the case, SEOs wouldn't usually want to waste their time making a static site just to join a contest that will most last up to 3 months and only to win small prices including prestige if I may count it. So what's in it for them? fun? I bet not? Prestige, maybe but who want's it when the exchange rate of that small prize will only last a few weeks or even days?

Just some good old opinion and I just can't help writing it here just to let others know the consequence of launching a contest that is based on an entry that is a static site. Anyway, here's another problem with that case. If a participant will use a static site, and all the other site that he will use will give links leading only to theit entry and not to the contest sponsors. That would surely hurt a lot because we all know that SEO contest purpose is for marketing and that is marketing by getting links from the same SEO contest participants, whereas if you are the sponsor and you only allow blogs, then there will be more who are interested to join. Because we all know that blogs are a common possession to any internet webmaster, then that would be equivalent to more participants and more links which in return will generate more links for your purpose if you are the sponsor than launching an SEO contest that is based on entries using a static site. Makes sense?

Aside from the factor of time frame in making a webpage, the links that you will generate for your business if you are the sponsor and the number of joining participants, there really is more which is actually small but is worth a look. SEOs like easy ways and not just SEOs but almost all of us if possible, so to generate more interest in your contest, I think you'g rather use blogs than static sites. Anyway, this is just an opinion and nothing more. Good luck to all of you SEOs all over the world who are right now in to an SEO contest!

Google Must've Detected Sudden Links Upsurge

I got lowered from the results of the captivating Capiz SEO contest and from my own viewpoint, this is the result of so much links coming in for this entry. I lost the main page ranking as well as the sub pages and I don't know when Google will allow this site to be indexed once again for the keyword on captivating Capiz after being given a PR 3 last update.

I just wish that with a few more significant moves, I will be able to get back on track. For sure, this will be not in the perfect time because the Capiz SEO contest is bound to end this weekend and there seems nothing that I can do using this blog. My other entries had their chance to peek at the top spot but there is a stiffer process right now because all the participants are in a hurry to get where I also want to get in.

I'm Back in the Captivating Capiz Race

Yes, I am back in the captivating Capiz race and this blog makes another bailout on the SEO move that I am making this time. I have what it takes and this blog has what it takes for that matter so this move will prove whatever there is left for an effort to make a move up in the results for the keyword captivating Capiz.

Changing Title Tags

I did not know what effects it will be for this blog on captivating Capiz but for one thing I am sure about, it fell drastically beyond seeing where in the results pages it landed today. After doing a makeover in the title tag, it did fall apart but I am expecting a comeback soon when things go right for this post to get indexed because Google trusts this blog giving it a PR 3 after just one month of promotion using all possible link building effort.

I hope that something goes right tonight after seeing my new title tag Captivating Capiz Shells in Roxas City seemingly did not help this blog rank higher even a notch up. I wonder why but I have a few reasons already forming in my mind. This is yet another experiment and I am not sure yet what could have happened, just some hunch.

2 Weeks and Still No Clue to Capiz

The algorithm combined with the large effort of the participants to the captivating Capiz contest seem to make the results still fragile. I only had a chance to be on top over the others for a day. Today, no one can still say that he or she will win because there is about 2 weeks more for all the leading entries which includes one of my blogs.

I hope this goes well for me or my blogs because this post will give me the clue on what to do for my other entries. Google has a weird way to show entries for a competitive niche how it likes to place or rank a webpage in the search engine results pages. This can be an answer to some of the questions I had in mind. If this makes it, I'll be rich!

The Dilemma is Over

Finally, the dilemma is over for me as the culprit decided to erase the content that was copied from my blog on captivating Capiz contest. I am glad that owner found a way through my call to remove the content that was copied from me.

I am thankful about what happened in the past few days because I really like the thrill that the occurring circumstance gave me. It taught me a lesson not to make good content, otherwise, you get copied by people who don't know yet anything about blogging or writing for the web.

There really is a big difference between the two as when you write for the internet, there is always an accountability issue or what we call as responsibility on your part and in providing an original content that you and your blog can be proud of someday, at least.

I only found out about the removal of my content today and I am glad about the fact that I do not have to come over just to check on the people who copied my content. I do not want to capitalize here more on because I want to take it as another event in blogging and joining SEO contests such as the captivating Capiz SEO contest. I learned another lesson here.

Plagiarizing my Capiz Review Blog Again

Ok, someone did again copied my CAPTIVATING CAPIZ content and I was only able to learn about it today after logging in to my Wordpress Account and seeing the link in my dashboard coming from another blog in the F.A, school. It's obvious from the sidebar links that this new plagiarist did copied my content intentionally because there is not much of a conten that you can find in there.

My Capiz blog
is supposed to be a way to promote the island with really good content in there but it seems that some students there do not want to have the island promoted with the use of my Capiz blog. It seems that students in the F.A school there do not know how to write and make their own research about their own place. Nakakahiya ito sa mga estudyante ng F.A. if this is another case of plagiarism. Nakakahiya talaga kayo kasi this proves na bobo ang mga estudyante dyan and all they want to do is to copy content from the good resource.

This is an obvious stealing from me from what you can see in the date of the posts. The professor responsible for the students seem did not even teach his students about plagiarism and didn't even bother to check the works of his students. I don't want to say bad words sana eh but with people like that I don't have time to pay respect. "THEY DON'T DESERVE RESPECT"

I think as a last resort I will go and contact the governor of Capiz about this issue and have the students or professor/s or the person responsible for this plagiarism act to be punished. Madali ko lang gawin yan and I can do so much with nothing to be afraid of kasi I know that I am on the right side. It will be easy to PIN DOWN THE CULPRIT because I have leads.

Halfway the Capiz Contest

We are reaching now halfway of the captivating Capiz contest and I want to be sure that there will be changes for this blog so this time I am about to change to title tag to see a difference if the rankings will get jiggered up.

What i did was to take away the quotes for the contest title tag which used to be "captivating capiz blog" and then turned into "cativating capiz srednarb" and now I took the quotes out to simply make it captivating capiz and removed srednarb to see what will happen.

SEO on the Race for Srednarb Domains

At first I thought that there are so many among Filipino SEOs looking for the different domains that they can buy for the promotional items corporate gifts srednarb SEO contest but I was surprised to see that there are only a few who were indexed. There's still a lot of domains available for the contest entry if SEO are still looking for them today.

I'm beginning to think now if the decision of the organizer to have all techniques in would be a good decision at all for the contest rules because it seems that Google is not the one slow for the indexing of the contest entries but instead, the different SEO people were not yet on to any move. If they are planning to do something in the last few minutes of the contest, there is no way that the major sponsors will get what they want from the participants.

It should have been only white hat for my own opinion because if those who are planning to pour their all in link building the easy way, it will be hard for Google to find out about anything fishy so for those who are up to something in the last minute, I bet that this will only work in the last minute and not along the contest. The sponsors will not benefit from links in the indexed pages today because all the blogs are leading to the entries and not to the sponsor pages. This is just a safe opinion anyway and I still have a lot of work to do to be able to have a site indexed for the said SEO contest. I also read that Google does not encourage domains that are really dynamic and turning them into static by changing file names. This could be a turning point in the entry I am doing a push in to.

Promotional Items Corporate Gifts Srednarb Contest

There is a newly launched SEO contest in the Philippines, the "promotional items corporate gifts srednarb" contest and I must admit it is truly a high priced SEO contest but requires a lot of the rules to be followed by all the contestants who are vying for the top spot. There will be more of the contestants soon but what I am after today is to make a little impression to help a friend and give him a few links using the posts that I am making for the said SEO contest.

There will be more on the results soon and right now when you type in the the keyphrase "Promotional Items Corporate Gifts Srednarb", you will only see a few in the results so this post hopes to be there soon before the bulk of the websites of the participants make it to the top spot. All SEO tactics are in which means that to get early in the spot, the participants will have to make an initial grey or black technique. Well, this is just some presumption because everybody wants to be there when the race begins tomorrow.

Promotional Items Corporate Gifts Srednarb
SEO contest, here I go. i want to be there even just for a short time and this is an effort to do just that to be able to get it fast and as early as possible.

Students Should Be Guided by Teachers

Today the dilemma finally ended after a few days of battle to topple the effects of the work of a student who didn't realize the effects of copy pasting my content in the CAPTIVATING CAPIZ race. I would like to thank the admin and the organizer of the contest who helped me as well as the people who also gave their insights on the event of such a learning experience both for me and the person who copied my content about Capiz.

I took pride at being copied for reasons that is obvious that my content indeed is good enough to be wanted to appear in another blogger's blog just to say there is something there is on his part. I cannot blame the person but what I am so pittyful is that he did not realize how bad a mistake he did be it intentional to put me down in the captivatin Capiz contest or just to make up with some class requirement in school.

I hope this will serve as a lesson to all those who are looking to enter into the limelight of blogging because if you think that it is that easy to learn, I bet you not. Most of the time you will have to undergo a lot of experiences to be able to make yourself good at it. Anyway, there really is no ruch on that, just some learning experience on both me, the person who copied my content, the teacher and also those who are looking to blog.

For the person who copied my content, I urge you to still write but with dignity in giving your own idea to contribute to whatever is already there. Make some review instead of copying. This is just the start for you and you take it as a challenge next time and be cautiously doing things easy. It is important that when we do things, we know about it. There is always no need to rush things up and make a few hours of research just like what I did to arrive at the content that got copied. I don not blame you if you are literally new to bloggging but if you did this intentionally, it's your call.

My SEO Technique Made it to the World SEO Contest

What does the quote sign [" "] mean in the search engine language? It means as we all know from our html as exact match or exact phrase. When added to a keyword, it means that you are only allowing an exact match for a keyword therefore only allowing the search engines to see that you are targeting a specific keyword or keyphrase which a very good choice to use in a contest that so far always have 1 keyword of keyphrase.

I have used this technique for so many times now in so many SEO contests and I bet that this works and have been seen to work for all occasion if you are looking for the perfect chance to have your content or website indexed only on 1 phrase.

I have also seen how others were able to imitate this technique in the Busby SEO contest and I bet it helped a fellow Filipino win the 4th place in that SEO contest. Yes, my personal technique which nobody really sees anywhere else but first in my backyard have been even seen in some world SEO contests being used by a fellow Filipino participant. Congratulations!!! Mind you, I am the first one to use that technique and a frien knows all about that when we used it in another small SEO contest and had it tested there.

Now, I am also using that same technique and I tried puttin it in the title tag to see more of the great effects that it can give to my entry. I am joining the "Captivating Capiz" contest and I am using that same technique and I saw that there are already quite a lot of followers who also have been using my technique.

Change of Plans for an Entry to Captivating Capiz Race

Soon, some of the entries we have for the Captivating Capiz mini SEO contest will eventually drop down from the rankings because I am not doing anything for those entries but what surprises me is that it seem untouchable for now for its target keyword. This proves further that optimized pages rock in Google and that if we only take the time to optimize our posts and pages for a keyword using a blog, we will get there soon even if we don't do any aggressive link building for it.

Pages naturally rank well and will get their target position for a keyword especially if there is enough good content and you optimized it to arrive there. Many people say that content is king and indeed it is true and it proved here at the mini SEO contest dubbed as "Captivating Capiz".

Captivate Capiz now!

Roving Around with Captivating Capiz Results

I was looking round tonight at the captivating Capiz results in Google and I saw a lot of what I did already in the top 20 results indexed. I do not know what they all meant because honestly, I still am figuring it out how to explore something here but since I didn't think of anything else upon seeing the results that had me up to maybe about 5 out of 20 results so I hurried it up here in my Blogger dashboard to write something and see the effects the next day. It's already late so probably, whatever the result of this move can be a decisive effort on the next few days. Please read below by visiting some of my indexed links for the challenge on the keyword captivating Capiz.

It's up to the search engines to see if it fits the puzzle tomorrow.

Only 2 Entries for the Captivating Capiz Race

The "CAPTIVATING CAPIZ" got so far 2 legitimate entries on its back to pursue the said contest and now there will be more soon I hope because there really is no thrill when the competing sites are very few. I believe that I will soon see a lot more of those entries on top over me just like today when I searched for the keyword and surprised that someone got ahead of my top 2 position entries.

This is really going to be one of the most interesting contests ever that I will join and I know that there is more to this captivating Capiz SEO contest than just what I learned and experienced in the Cebu SEO contest that ended just a few days ago. Now let's rock and roll and visit other captivating Capiz entries and join this one. It's going to be more fun when we are plenty.

Illusion Travel to Captivating Capiz

The Cebu SEO contest just finished and now there is a new SEO contest launched for the keyword "captivating Capiz". There are only a few pages indexed and I wanted to take advantage of this early so that this page will have its tell in the end while the others are still sleeping on their pillows.

Nobody seems to realize that SEO is a battle of who gets on top of the results for a keyword or keyphrase as early as possible. The early bird always gets the healthiest worm in this case so I have to try to take the results early. The first SEO contest is some experiment to see where SEO efforts lead this blog. It is not yet indexed in Yahoo but I have a strong gut feeling that there is something for this blog without even a link to it using any related keyword for the "captivating Capiz" keyword.

The others were already there and I would like to see where this post lands tonight so I have to make sure that this blog post is posted tonight also. See you there guys!!! "CAPTIVATING CAPIZ" here we go.

This Blog Landed 4th on the Cebu SEO Contest

I am glad that this blog landed on the 4th in the recently concluded Cebu SEO contest. This is not bad because although I did not really win anything at all among the contest prizes, I still won a lot in terms of learning using this SEO contest as an experiment.

This is the nth time that I have been to an SEO contest and next time there will more than just learning from it I will win it and do all my best to be the best when the results go final. Thank you to the sponsor of this contest and for all the participants who joined. Also to a friend James.

It was such an experience and I love it. I would like to congratulate Bleuken for winning the contest because he did his share and did his best among us all participants.

Magic Bullet for the Cebu SEO Contest - An SEO Technique Challenge

This is a win win try to get the top 3 spots of the Cebu SEO contest and I'm really not sure if this will have an effect to the last few 4 hours of the contest, I just wanted to prove something here and instead of making anymore of those blurbs I immediately get in touch with some of my resources and use them here to see if this will eventually give a little push in the SERPS today./

The entries are all established there and I don't think I will be left out without any effort for this SEO contest at all. This will decide if I still have enough time to thinks and prove something else is worth a try for the Cebu SEO contest. I just wan to make some additional details available for the searhc engines to see if they really work while doing a lot of effects and magic bullet SEO. There is nothing left to do. This is the last effort and I am not sure if this has something to do with some entries ranking but this is just what I wanted to see through and prove if effective or not.

I really loose nothing in this contest but I am sure that this will either make or break my entry. If this one doesn't make it for me, then I will avoid using it for my own clients as well. I am not looking more on winning the Cebu SEO challenge but more on learning and this is an ultimate learning for me to prove what this technique can really do in terms of SEO especially in a contest.

Google Looks for Something New to Display in the Cebu Contest Index

The Cebu SEO contest has been one of the most stressful contests that some Visayan bloggers ever had and i know it from their contest posts. The thing is that even if that is the case and this is not mine at all, I never fail to take a peek in the results everyday. Sometimes I even use the internet cafe because I am out of Metro Manila and very far in Cebu even. I go to Cavite at most during weekends because my parents live there.

Back to the SEO contest. I tried to see the results and take a very definitive and anlyzing look at what's in my face right now and I see that there is nothing new but one thing that some of the participants would like to learn from this experience. Google seems to like every now and then something new in their index and not just some Cebu SEO contest centered posts and social bookmarkings. I tried it, really as in I tried what the guys, my competitors out there are up to and I see that they all want a piece of Digg and Mixx and StumbleUpon and the rest of the high PR social bookmarking sites but what struck me high on my hypothalamus is the compelling TRUTH THAT GOOGLE LIKES TO DISPLAY IN THEIR INDEX A LITTLE OF DIVERSITY. Google is sick and tired of full spam and I must admit I did spam just to make a few things proven before my eyes. I know that they won't work at all but still I did it for the sake of learning all about that matter.

Using social bookmarking will always have an advantage but when the search engines get so sick and tires of the SEO contest being mentined probably a few thousand time already, there has to be something more than just "Cebu SEO contest". Google likes diversity and the use of their only and most effective tool, the Google Adwords Keyword Tool to see what diversities can be used to implement link building for a contest entry.

For those in the Cebu SEO contest, this is a tip. just try and make your posts and link building effort a lot different from what you wanted to concentrate on and you will surely be benefited from that move. I have observed that this works and never fails to work all the time for all of the contest participants but they just don't notice that at all. They don't try to be as sensitive as what the search engines are and this results to banning of their entries until they loose everything else they have which is the high rankings.

I will try to drive more ways into the experiemnt until today but tomorrow I will stop all of what I am doing because I want to be there just for fun and learning. I am just hoping that my Cebu SEO contest entry will make it to the top 3 spots on Google by 6 pm tomorrow which is the contest cutt off time. Wishing all the participants especially those who are on the top 10 spots. Anything else can happen and you better watch out for that entry of mine because there will be more links coming in and I bet they will have a dramatic effect by tonight September 7 midnight.

I don't really want to disappoint anyone and that includes myself but I am hoping that this experiment will end in a flurry that no one ever thought would be a possible feat for my SEO experiment entry. I want to prove something and I want to see that it gets proven using this contest so watch out and GOOD LUCK TO ALL!

Revealing the Busby SEO Contest Technique

Now here is something to feast on and I want to share it here for the benefit of those who are looking for more information and want to win the Cebu SEO contest. This is a video that I got while browsing for good SEO blogs out there.

Finally Cebu SEO Contest Atom Feed Submitted

I finally did it with a few submission of my Atom feeds to some blogging directories out there, I hope to help spread the news in this blog much faster and without the need to do more pings everytime.

This is going to be more enjoyable for me as an SEO and be able to do so many things for an SEO contest such as what the Cebu SEO contest can offer for me. This is one of the biggest time that I alotted to this blog today< I never had the time to do things so I tried to find a way to do this now because there is a spare time and I took advantage of it.

The Cebu SEO Contest did Not End

I was surprised that the Cebu SEO contest did not end yesterday after the organizer himself announced. I actually read in his rules that the said SEO contest was really about to end on September 8 but it seems everything else changed into September 2 but now its back again to the first original date.

What seems to be happening to the contest? What could be behind this sudden change of plans for the SEO contest checkpoint? Is there something hidden here or what? I do not know anything yet here but from my point of view the contest shouldn't have been moved in the first place. This will surely generate doubts as to what the organizer wants to do or what's in his mind extending the said contest.

Cebu SEO Contest Ends Today

Finally, the Cebu SEO contest ends today with a lot of controversies and other side bets after 2 months that it took off. This is just some small SEO contest but I guess what contributed to the chaos which only took a while are the rules.

Yes it is with the rules which is actually 0 rule contest. Anyone with a site that can give the organizer a link and post a blog about the contest plus make that site rank on top in Google with the keyword Cebu SEO contest September 2, 2008 wins. There are only 3 prizes so the winning entries will take only the top 3 slots.

DP Forum is Hacked by Who?

Just today, I found out that Digital Point Forum got hacked and this is not something that happens all the time as the webmasters never saw it coming. I know that this is the first time that I was able to witness the actual hacking and saw what it looked like hacking the most prestigious forum in the SEO community and all webmasters.

I wish DP can get past this one fast because the threads that were hacked were in the major category, the Google category on Digital Point Forums.

Google Dance Affects Cebu SEO Contest

The Google dance affected the Cebu SEO contest today. I knew it when the difference in the results started to slap in my face right after I typed the keyword of the contest which is Cebu SEO contest. Even the forum members all over the SEO community and webmasters of diverse levels have complained about the Google dance.

I really don't care so much about this status but what I am worried about are the earnings of my sites. There is a very big difference between the ordinalry algorithm but this dance is a lot different compared to just your ordinary algo. This is the same cry of forum embers and webmasters all around.

Well, just having you guys out there prepare for the worst update yet once again. This could be another slap or this could be another update especially for those who are up to selling links.

Looking for Jobs in Dubai

More and more Filipinos and I bet there are a lot of local Cebu residents looking for jobs in Dubai and I am not surprised. The reason behind is because the economic crisis has really vested on us especially in Asian countries where the export of labor workforce is relentless.

People are looking for jobs in Dubai because they believe as well as I that the Emirates will not be as badly hit by the current recession happening in the West. Europe for example has felt the effect of the recession in the United States and started to see the effects in labor lay off in different businesses.

Filipinos in Europe felt this and for this reason, they are looking for other greener pastures to eat fresh grass in. Filipinos or OFWs are used to this kind of set up and it has made them the more stronger when we are talking about jobs and looking for jobs to other countries. Dubai, UAE is an ideal place to go find a job, in fact, many Europeans have seen refuge in the Emirates, particularly in Dubai. The reason for this is because Dubai is truly amazing.

The only industry however that felt a little set back from the recession in the US and crisis in Europe is the real estate industry where we all know Dubai is investing in for the preparation of incoming tourists and to increase their tourism to a larger extend next year. I hope this won't affect people who are looking for jobs in Dubai in the coming of the year 2009.

The Olypics Gold Medal Contest for Cebu SEO Contestant

The Philippines got no gold in the just concluded World Olympics. We got zero once again and what does this mean? i don't know anything about it or what happened to the gold hopefuls that we have. Our bets, I thought had the big chance but when they were already playing, not even a glimpse at channel 9 about the contest on gold.

Better luck next time, contests are really something that we cannot pretend to win, we have to win it otherwise, we are a bunch of loosers, just like our Olympic athletes. I want us to win a gold in the contest for countries to have as much gold as other countries. This is not like the Cebu SEO contest wherein even if you loose, there is still another day. In the Olympics that happens only every 4 years, by that time, if you loose today, you might be as old as my grandfather. This way, you do not stand a chance for any contest.

Who's Got The Sweet Top Spot - Cebu SEO Contest

It's Rachelle's Blog that has the top sweet spot today. I don't know what she's been doing lately but I don't mind at all. The second spot was occupied by the Cebu SEO Contest organizer but he is not included of course in the contest. The third sweet spot is occupied by blueken, the Capizeno while the fourth spot which will eventually be the third is occupied by the tblog Cebu SEO Contest entry of a friend.

So far there are other entries following the results that I provided here but there is no other choice for those because the said SEO contest is about to end soon n 5 days. Not much time and there is now only a few efforts left form me to go push an a Cebu SEO contest entry in the 8th spot. Here Goes...

Tzan Tza Ra Ran - Viva Cebu SEO Contest !

Now that the end is not just near, but instead, the end is here, all Cebu SEO contest contestant are hurrying up with their effort to reach the top of the results. There seems to be nothing others can do but to praise for the top spot owner. This contest brought a lot of fun for all the participants and it also brought thrill to all who had conquered the tops spot once. This Cebu SEO contest hasn't yet reached that summit and I don't see any reason why it won't but since I am helping a friend to get there once again, here is a post that will probably get it all done.

This is a post dedicated to that Cebu SEO contest entry because I want to help that entry reach the top once again. I am giving today, that Visayan SEO a link from this blog hoping that this will have a dramatic effect on his campaign to regain the glory of being on top for so many days. Although I know that nobody has been there for so long like him and it is a fact that every 3rd day, his entry will reagain back the old glory, I know this will give his entry a boost because the domain is in and the contest posts are also optimized for that matter.

Now we will see if this will do the trick for that Cebu SEO contest entry of his. It is almost no longer moving since tomorrow after I told my friend SEO to do this and do that but today, I will work out on that instead and keep it to myself. He is lucky if he sees this one. I gave him a link with an anchor text "cebu seo contest" and then updated this blog once more so that the search engines will see my post.

The Eraser Heads Reunion Concert Pushes Through

After getting no success at all with the planned reunion concert by the Eraserheads with a sponsor, a cigarette company, Eraserheads band members get a savior in the new sponsor they have. i didn't get the name of the lucky guy.

Well, who's more lucky here but all the members of the said band that after disbanding back in 2002, they are back with their backs filled with 2 million pesos each when they finish the concert contract.

Cebu is clamoring for so long now that the said rock icon band in the early 90's would hold a concert in the popular city of Cebu for Cebuanos and Cebu SEOs who are willing to make a bargain just to see their idol band.

Master Leo is the Favorite Player of Cebu SEO and Web Master

Guess who is this favorite SEO character by the Cebu SEO and webmaster is? None other than Leo, the master in Tekken 6. I still haven't played around with Tekken 5 DR (dark resurrection) but I am here playing with the new Tekken 6 Era. A new arena for the SEO who once mastered the Tekken arena in the amusement.

Today, this post is indeed very different because I want to take away my mind from the ongoing Cebu SEO Contest which is giving me a hard time helping a friend do something for his entry. I cannot help but play with other previous tag team champions. Today is the day that I went out for some fun and I did enjoy it I must admit.

Now here I am again and about to play the game called as the Cebu SEO Contest - a game for webmasters and not Tekken masters.

The Disappearing Act - Cebu SEO Contest Entry

Today, my Cebu SEO blog made the contest disappearing act using the Google search with me logged in on my account. It happens all the time. As I view the results pages while signed up in my Google Accounts, the results were different. I wanted to help a friend tonight but I can't because I have so much work to do for clients.

Maybe tomorrow I can find time to do something for this entry as part of the experiment but for now I will just let it be. I just want to see what will happen right after I sign out from here after posting about the Cebu SEO Contest disappearing act. I hope my SEO blog entry can still come back

Just Experimenting - Cebu SEO Contest and Challenge




And Now The End Is Near - Cebu SEO Contest

The end is near for the Cebu SEO Contest. I want my friend to win this one and I am glad that I am part of what he has achieved so far for getting his current rankings up to today. There will be more SEO contests to come and it will be more exciting the next time I know because there will be more who will join it to gain a little exposure like what I am after.

I want the Cebu SEO contest to be extended so I can still use it for more experiments and also to learn more but I'm afraid I can't do anything about that. The end is near and it has to come and give way to the champion.

Who Will Win Cebu SEO Contest?

A friend, James Baldonaza who joined the Cebu SEO Contest gets a lot of comments these past few days. Contestants to the Cebu SEO contest and other challengers and participants are bugging him about winning the contest.

First I would like to make things clear for all who might be reading this blog anytime soon. THERE IS NO RULE IN THE CEBU SEO CONTEST. What exists in this SEO contest are only registration requirements in which part is to have a link back using one post leading to the organizer website which we all know. Another is to have the home page URL and not the post URL in the comments section. If you didn't post the home page URL, then I believe that you didn't register at all...which means that you are not part of the contest.

The organizer made it clear to everybody that THERE IS NO CONTEST RULE and we all should stick to that. There is no disqualification in any domain as long as you have registered and gave 1 link leading to the Cebu SEO Contest organizer website.

NO ONE EVEN NEEDS TO RANK A HOME PAGE IN ORDER TO WIN, again, there is no such rule. If the organizer feels this is not right, then he must make a comment either using his official blog or using this post and I will welcome it anytime.

You can also win all three prizes if you rank in those three slots on top of the results at the end of the contest date. So BOTTOMLINE IS, IF YOU DID REGISTER YOUR "HOME PAGE URL" AND MADE THE LINK BACK TO THE CEBU SEO CONTEST ORGANIZER, YOU ARE A VALID WINNER. SUB URLS SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE CONTEST BECAUSE THERE IS NO RULE!!!

This is the actual photo of the Cebu SEO Contest when it is sleeping. Please refer to the image below for more information.

Cebu SEO Contest Controversy

Early as expected, there will be controversies that will occur in this contest. The rules alone are very loose without proper context and no specific requirement at all except for a link back to the blog of the organizer named Lhurey. I don't know why this is so and I don't really care about anything else here but a little learning and fun. Plus only a few entries were taken. Nobody officially knows about the number of entries because of the reason that there is no contest leaderboard. The contestants themselves were the only ones who from time to time post a screenshot of the results taken from Google.

There is also one contest participant who is putting up arguments that she is getting a possible hacking attack although it is not proven at all. This gal Cebu SEO contest participant is still ranking in the first page to this day even after such claim of incidents of her loosing access to her blog. This could be a plain old age issue. In the Philippines, as well as some "tagalog' speaking natives in Cebu knows this is what is called as "pag-uulyanin" (state of forgetfullness). forgetting passwords or access codes is not the fault of other participants.

Surprises on the Contest

There are also a few contest surprises as there are some who even bought domains for the contest. They are serious about winning the prestige over other contest-ants and particip-ants. Although this is nothing new, I'd rather play safe on the rankings just to see something out and learn more from the experience.

There are also a few entries that made it pretty fast in the first page even if the said SEO contest has begun more than a month ago. This is not unusual as there are a lot of newbies here who are willing to learn something from experience. They all want a piece of the pie one way or another.

Making Mistakes in Bookmarking

There are also a few newbies, if I may be allowed to call them newbies who made a mistake using Sphinn in their bookmarking spams. What happened is that they got their accounts canceled not knowing that Sphinn is giving only a one in a million chance to get in their backyard and learn more from the great ones. What a waste of time, effort and energy.

Well whatever happens, this is a once in a lifetime chance to learn and be part of a little history in the making - the Cebu SEO Contest.

Contest Articles:

Below are some of the most famous articles about SEO contests all over the Philippines as well as all over the world. There is a big chance that you might want to stumble upon these digg seo contests that I want you to learn about also. Although these SEO Contests are rarely seen, today there is a lot of post about SEO contests.
