Cebu Blogging Summit 2014

Cebu Blogging Summit 2014
September 27, 2014 - I was speaking at the second Cebu Blogging Summit held at University of San Jose - Recoletos (USJR) Basak Campus in front of bloggers, want to be bloggers and students. It was my second time as a speaker in my entire life and I was really nervous about it.

The Social Good Summit Cebu was held in the morning, which is a great way to help bloggers decide and motivate them why they should blog, what should they blog about, and why they should keep on doing, sharing and posting something good. Which was for me, a very helpful and educating even I’ve been blogging for almost 4 years now.

Other than being a speaker for that day, I was also one of the organizers of the event along with the fellow Cebu Blogging Community members. I was also supposed to be the host of the event, but because I was too shy and that I was not provided with the information about the speakers and that I don’t know them (or at least meet yet), I don’t have any idea how to introduce them to the crowd of 100 people.

Using Blogs for Social Good
Speaker: Mike Acebedo Lopez

We also let the audience tweet us their questions about our topics since we can’t entertain everyone’s question during the open forum. And surely, some may be hesitant and too shy to stand up and ask the questions. So it was a pretty good idea since we do get a lot of tweets and friend requests, they’re not all questions but there are also some who are really kind and sweet to send their big thanks for organizing an event like this.

For those who were not able to come due to some priorities, no worries. We have lots of events coming in and many plans and meet ups that we’d love to have you come.

Organizers and Volunteers
I would like to grab this chance to send my big thanks to all businesses, companies and business owners who supported us all bloggers. ‘Till next time!

Facebook Comments Got Some Stickers!

Facebook Comments Got Some Stickers
I’ve been slowly teaching my Mama on using Facebook since it’s been really useful for me and my whole family these past months – since we bought our Mama her own tablet. It’s now our main way to communicate, joke around, bond and update (mostly tease and make fun of) each other.

I just taught my Mama how to use the stickers yesterday on using the stickers since she now knows and do use “LOL” and “OMG” – which is cute for a 60 years old woman to use.

Facebook Comments Got Some Stickers

Today, I noticed that the Facebook stickers are now available and can be used on Facebook comments!

Facebook Comments Got Some Stickers

I’ve read my friend’s status and I noticed that the same options when typing a private message (PM) on Facebook got similar features. They’ve added the option to upload a photo on the comments section few months back – or it was just few months ago that I noticed it – and it’s a lot cooler that the stickers can now be used on comments since I really love the Tuzki stickers because he’s cute and he can move.
Is this a call for Facebook stickers makers to make more stickers? Please do make more stickers that can move! Please, pretty please!?

5 Reasons to Rank Your Videos on Google

5 Reasons to Rank Your Videos on Google YouTube Video SEO
I’ve been ask so many times if I’ll be able to rank a video on search engines and can offer it as service. Your wish is granted!

Starting today, I’ll be offering video SEO service for client’s who are interested on this service wherein the link to the page for the service can be found on the top, just right below my name and profession, on the color red box. The link can be found on the very bottom of the page, in the footer.
I’ve used video SEO not only for my clients but also for myself, ranking the video about me, the services I offer, and videos I created for my blogs.

Let me share with you the 5 reasons why you should also optimize your videos as well, especially if you already have a video produced and want to increase your website traffic and online exposure. Hear out the following reasons:

Drive Traffic to Your Website

On September 2013, Matt Cutts of Google announces or shares the data that the way that internet users have shifted their way in using and being more interested in helpful videos. Especially, when the video shows up in SERPs, people click more of it other than the regular links we see.

So imagine if your video is ranking on a targeted term or keyword, imagine the traffic and exposure on your business.

Quality Links to Your Website

How can you get traffic to your website when you usually upload videos on video sites like YouTube? Well, you put a link to your website wherein people who’ll watch the video will easily find it. That way, when you mention that the link is at the bottom of the video, they can easily access it and visit your website.

Improve SERP Ranking

Imagine getting a link from a quality sites like YouTube, Vimeo, and other video sites with huge PR and traffic. Those are quality links, links that can and will drive traffic to your website, a link that can totally help your website ranking.

I’ve tried it before on my blog, I’ve ranked my hotel review and when that video ranked on the first page my blog’s page for the review ranked in a matter of days on the third page.

Lower Bounce Rate

People spend at least a minute watching the video, surely when they click on the link going to your website they’re at least 75% interested about what you have to offer for them. That means, they’ll spend more time on your site, finding more about you and the product and services you offer, etc. In short, lower bounce rate and more quality traffic to your website.

Local Market

Studies show that there are more CTRs on videos on search engine results, since obviously it is more attractive due to the image or thumbnail of the video is shown.

Imagine, the video, the ranking, the traffic, with that you can surely win over the local market and I highly advice this to local businesses since it’s more specific, more target and less competition since you’re only competing only with the local businesses in the same market.

As a SEO specialist, it is important for me to grow, be informed, be in the latest and offer everyone and especially my clients new services and be updated with the latest trends in SEO industry. So, with this new service I'll be offering, and that is ranking videos on the Google search engine results.
