A couple of days back, I postedÂ sites whoÂ ranked high on Google using the keyword “Paradise Philippines“. I decided toÂ change the title ofÂ Philippines Travel Blog to Paradise Philippines – Discover the Philippines 7,107 Paradise Islands Â just to get the feel of it. Surprisingly, After a couple of days I wasÂ shocked to see some of my blog pages onÂ topÂ 100 search results:

Till now I’ve been receiving aÂ couple of emails from friends who happened to be in SEO industry congratulating me for gaining good position and to tell you honestlyÂ I dont really knowÂ if those are complements since my blogs dontÂ belong to theÂ top 10Â searches for all three search engines. Just to make it straight, Im notÂ joining this Bayanihan SEO contest for two reasons:
- I dont have time for cross linking
- I have a lot of pending assignments (writing / photography) to finish.
I just want to tryout optimizing and I will eventually revert back my blog title to Philippines Travel Blog.
SoÂ the question now isÂ How can the current participants / entries benefit from my blog?
- Post comments to my blogs here and here (I have activated Do Follow plugin on both blogs)
- Share your travel articles and photosÂ in Philippines Travel Blog (I’ll give you a chance of adding a maximum of three backÂ links on each of your posted article.
- Link Exchange? (email me @ melovillareal[at]gmail.com)
