The Mini SEO Contest sponsored by Bleuken (Busby SEO Test contestant) and Kyubs about the ‘Captivating Capiz’(keywords) is about to end tommorow October 26, 2008 at 3pm Capiz time. This contest started September 9, 2008. There were at least 22 Bloggers and Search Engine Optimizers from Capiz, Philippines and from other countries participated in the said contest. Although I am not a participant of the said contest, I kept on monitoring and updating the latest news, activities, updates and leaderboard of the ranking on the said keywords in Google.
I do really appreciate the move of bleuken and kyubs in conducting the said contest. Through this, it helps promote Capiz tourism. This encourages me to update this blog, to keep on posting the latest news about Capiz and Roxas City, learn techniques on Search Engine Optimization, blogging, and both onpage offpage optimization which I shared to my students.
Bloggers and SE Optimizers applied techniques, skills and test their attitudes on dealing with people just to kept their entry on the top rank on SERP. For almost 2 moths I spent on monitoring this contest, I learned a lot of things, discovered new techniques, win friends and most of all understand SEO better. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) job is really painful, time consuming and challenging. We cannot predict what the Search Engine will do with our Pages, especially Google. Understanding the different webcrawler algorithms and Page Ranking (PR) is very important. It is something that motivates me to strive and do research, and improve my skills.
But despite of these, there were some problems, controversies and challenges faced and encountered by the different contestants and the organizers all the way. There were who copied contents from other participants in captivating capiz and somehow affected their ranking. Sorry for this (to masterofthe), but those students who copied the contents where not aware of the contest, they are not participants, and probably copied it because of the good quality of the contents about Capiz. There were serious issues and controversies about other participants that really resulted to a hatred discussion and exchange of thoughts until to the point that each of them threw undesirable, unpleasant and humiliating words. And all these affects relationship and friendship.
Capiz bloggers are really good in SEO and blogging, once they help each other and unite for a common cause there will be a big chance for us to be known in the whole world and surely more opportunities will come.
I know that we are not all perfect, each of us has its own limitations and shortcomings. With the experiences learned in this contest, it really developed and honed my skills in SEO and blogging which I shared to my students. And probably, this will encourage me to participate on SEO contest in the future.
Thanks to Duane and bleuken for sharing their knowledge and skills in SEO. They pioneered and encourage me to learn SEO in Capiz.
