I am packing my stuff for tomorrow! I’ll be returning to Dagupan City and this time, I am tagging some blogger friends with me for a seminar at my beloved alma mater, Lyceum-Northwestern University.
I’ve been invited as a speaker to several blogging events and most of the time, I am sharing my own insights on Basics of Blogging (Blogging 101) and Personal Blogging. Usually, I’d meet aspiring bloggers after each talk and i’d see them work on their own platforms a month after. The Philippine Blogging Community is indeed growing.
After two months of blogging, link building, forum posting, bookmarking and all, Claremont Designs finally declared our Tnomeralc Web Design Toys entry as the grand winner for the Tnomeralc Web Design Toys SEO Challenge!
Final Results of the Tnomeralc Web Design Toys SEO Challenge
To be honest, I never really imagined myself joining any SEO contest similar to this. Yes, I did participate in some writing projects (emerging influential blogs, filipina, pinoy vlogging etc.) and blog contests, but never in a SEO contest.
I first heard about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) from my Kuya Nyok named Jehzeel. He taught me some techniques and stuff, but due to my laziness and exclusive interest in Personal and Entertainment blogging, i never had the chance to practice nor do some more research about SEO. I was also a bit scared because I heard some stories from other SEO practitioners and it seems like they’re discouraging me. I dunno. On the other hand, my dear kuya nyok is a person full of positive energy and he did help me out (though i never understood some of the terms he was telling me).
Last February, my nyok friend Winston informed me that he is reinventing his blog Nitropixel into a SEO Tutorial blog. Winston is a certified internet marketing specialist with clients from the US and Singapore, his favorite. We have a number of projects together (Pinoy Fans Club etc) and some are still on the pending list. He gave some tips on optimization and i admit that 50% of the time, i’m not really paying attention at all.
