Lessons Learned from SEOContest2008 Defeat

Nahh. I’m not yet defeated, and the contest has not yet ended. I just want to face reality that I will not win, but still I’m working on my entry, hoping for a SERP miracle. From garnering the second spot on seocontest2008‘s early days, down to 3rd, then to 7th, then to 10th, and now on page 3 of Google SERPs. I’m going downwards as the contest nears its end. I’m running on an opposite direction, while others are going up to the first page. I have learned a lot by joining this International SEO contest. I realized that timing is very important in SEO. Right timing will let you win the gold. I’m just spinning my wheels in the snow while optimizing my entry for the said contest.

This is not an end for me. I have unlocked some SEO mysteries, developed my SEO skills, and refined my SEO know-how. I’m so happy that a lot of Filipino SEO Experts are performing well in the said competition. Approximately 200 entries from different parts of the globe joined this World SEO Contest.

To quote what is written on seophilippines.org

Several large teams can be identified from France, Indonesia, Hungary, Bulgaria, India and the Philippines. Although one unique behavior among the Filipino competitors is they do not seem to be working as a team on a single site. But working, helping each other out but still with their own individual pages. Each person having some confidence of performing well and at least making the top 10 before the contest ends.

This quote inspired me to give some of my blog juice to fellow SEOcontest2008 participants. I would really love to see all Filipinos conquer the first page on April 1. Here are the following Filipino competitors of SEOcontest2008.
