A Cebuano Blogger's Frail SEO Attempt

Thanks to google’s webmasters tools and to the posts of Marhgil. I’m learning fast on how to improve traffic to my blog. Cyril, my cubicle neighbor, is also excited on this SEO thing.

There are few keywords where I’m on google’s page 1. It brought considerable traffic to this site (though not really converting into adsense clicks). Take for example the GMA vs ABS CBN entries that I have here. Though there is not enough content here about their age-old rivalry, still, plenty stumbled in this site. So I’m constrained to give updates.

In last night’s news, ABS CBN brought to open their witnesses. GMA, however, claimed that there was nothing new to the allegations, and even sought swift court action on their suit. But the judge might inhibit himself. His cousin works for ABS CBN.

Here’s a new one: GMA said that AGB Nielsen reported that ABS CBN also contacted metered homes. Hmmm…That would probably make them on equal footing.

But we viewers are not really concerned about their feud. Give us good shows. I’m really getting redundant here.

Ok, back to SEO. The truth is: I want to optimize keywords like “Flowers to Cebu” and “Cebu Weddings”. This site is on page 3 for the former and page 1 on the latter. Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. I know I’ll be competing with flower shops and wedding planners on this. But these are something that my wife is really good at: floral arrangements and coordinating weddings. I’ll see how far I can get before getting a dotcom for an online flower shop. Getting a small pie of this industry won’t hurt the big players.

Welcome to SEOsphere (is there such a word?) :) That's good, focus on popular keywords that you'll not tire writing about. Alam mo na, maraming nag-umpisa, hindi pa nakukuha yung $100 sa Google, tumigil na, nagsawa kaagad.

Good luck! Keep on blogging. ;)
