Donald Trump 2012 [Feb. 21st, 2011|02:07 am]
Harry Santos
Hey guys check out this super relevant link that I just saw: Donald Trump 2012! Imagine that! haha! Imagine if he actually ran for president and, just as I did for the Chilean miners crisis, this would rank by the June and at the same time rank for the 2012 US elections! That would be super! This isn't just a random backlink for SEO purposes, no not at all. I've had this Livejournal blog for 8 years or something like that. I've been blogging here for so long, so why would I even have such an incentive of promoting such a lousy backlink, right? It's stupid. Just like my Shakey's Delivery one.It really makes no sense. But somehow I have to add words to what I'm writing right now. Because the thing is, Google isn't a human being. it is just some robot that works based on algorithms and patterns. So what matters is that I write about it with proper grammar and shit like that. It will eventually get indexed in Google's database. What will count is that I have a backlink from this random blog I've had from a long time ago. And you know what? It just might work! I didn't even do this for the Chilean miner's crisis, but at the time I didn't even think it would work. But now, my concepts of SEO is just as hardcore as those companies with armies of bloggers on their side. And you know what? I'm just one man against them. So if Donald Trump decides to run by 2012, I would have a great advantage. My edge would be that I've blogged about it long before anyone else talked about it. And from my experience, backlinks make a big difference. I don't even know why the hell I was able to rank higher than BBC or CNN or any other news website for the Chilean Miners crisis or the Manila hostage taking news. What matters is that I am doing this for my ranking. Blogging is the only way. Writing more and adding to content will make it more relevant. Ron Paul is the man.

"Welcome, love
I have made a place for you here
I know every word they say
I know how they want to make you change
change if you want
don't you come and change for me
I can love you as you are
I didn't mean to make you want to leave"

i felt the cold breeze
hold my hands and caress my feet
as i watched the cheese sandwich
flee my stomach like a flowing rainbow
forming a map on the water's surface
dissolving as i summon the whirlpool

i am a flailing turnip
buried deep underneath the soil
and my brain is aboveground
struggling for water and sunlight

How I'm Making Money Through Blogging [Sep. 26th, 2010|08:48 pm]

If you think you can make a blog that will get a lot of traffic then you should start thinking about how you can make it profitable by putting ads in your blog. Many bloggers in the Philippines are missing out on this opportunity. See how easily I'm making money through blogging and how you can too!

Google Adsense Stats</p>

This is the stats for my Google Adsense account. Google Adsense is the affiliate program of Google that allows you to put ads in your blog. I am sure you see this all the time in different websites with the tagline "Ads by Google". As you can see, I have made around 14 dollars already. I know it might not be much but then it's been just 8 weeks since I started this. Imagine if I wrote more and advertised more I could be getting even more money. In this article I will show you how you step-by-step tutorial on how you can use Google Adsense to make your blog profitable. I will also discuss different techniques on how you can increase the traffic of your blog thus making your profits even bigger.

You're probably thinking that Google won't be able to pay us here in the Philippines. But as you can see You can choose your payment methods such as Wester Union or by Mail. Anyway, enough of this trying to prove that you can make money through blogging. Let's get started on how you can do it too.

First and foremost, if you do not have a blog already you should first check out my How to Make Your Own Blog Tutorial. Even if you already have a blog it is important that you still go through that tutorial because not all blogs support Google Ads. If you already have a blog that supports Google Adsense then it is time to start making some money.

After this you will have to learn about how you can put ads on your blog by checking out my How to sign up for Google Adsense and put ads in your blog tutorial.

What to write about

Think quality. And the most important way of doing this would be by writing about something that you are really interested in or even better something that you are very interested in. For example, I am interested in photography, video editing, and music production and so I write about these things and even write tutorials about them. Here are examples of tutorials and articles I've written about stuff I'm very interested in:

Aside from this, you should also think like an internet surfer. Think of your target market. Think of what people are searching for. For instance, I know that people always search for fast food delivery numbers and menus online. This allowed my blog posts to instantly rank on the first page Google. For example if you search "Shakey's Delivery Philippines" you will instantly see my Shakey's Delivery Philippines article on around the fourth link in the front page of Google. And this is not the only blog post I have that is ranking on Google. One day you might just be surprised that after searching something in Google you will end up in one of my posts or articles.

But aside from knowing what to write about you also need to learn about Search Engine Optimization. You need to know how search engine works and what techniques you can use to make your website or blog post rank higher in Google. These techniques include using keywords in your title and content, using backlinks and interlinking, and many other things. You can learn more about this in my Search Engine Optimization tutorial.

Then now, you need to make sure you increase the traffic of your blog. There are many ways you can do this like advertising in social networking websites such as Facebook or Twitter. You can also put your website or blogs on blog pinging sites and blog directories and search engines. This is all discussed in my How to Increase the Traffic of your Blog tutorial.

I am mostly making money through blogging in my Succesful Hubpages. If you check my profile and the stats above you will see that I only started blogging in Hubpages for 8 weeks and I am almost about to reach my 10k views. This is how you can earn through ads in your blog: by people viewing and clicking the ads. So imagine that, 10k views in 8 weeks. These are all because of the techniques I have been telling you about so be sure to check them out and learn how you can be making money through blogging too. You can also checkout my How to Make Money on Hubpages tutorial.

You see, I am not afraid of failure. This is just another one my lightbulbs. And hey, I am getting free money from it. I started this when I was still working and didn't really have much time for myself. Imagine what I'll be earning if I focus more and write more (and that is exactly what I'll be doing).

What are you waiting for? If you do not start now while it is early you might just hate yourself later. Don't miss out on this opportunity to make money by the simple task of blogging.

On Trading Links and Some New Features of my Blog [Aug. 5th, 2010|12:04 pm]

Are you interested in getting more traffic in your blog?

I am currently fixing the links section of my blog/portfolio and will be featuring websites/blogs who are willing to trade links with me. One condition I would require for your blog to be featured in my site is that you submit a banner that is 400 x 80 px. I find that banners are more effective than links and internet users are more likely to click on them and this is why I've thought of incorporating this with my blog. In exchange for this, I am hoping that you will feature my banner in your blogroll or links section.

Check out these cool new features in Harry's Blog

1. Maps that show you exactly where I was
Many times, I will be reviewing food places or other places where you can trip out.This feature will help you find these locations and know exactly how to get there using google maps. All you have to do is click on the map photo on my blog and you are instantly redirected to Google maps where you can find the most convenient way for you to go to the location I reviewed.

2. Quote of the week
Feeling a little lethargic? These quotes will surely give the inspiration you need to get your week started right! I will be posting weekly quotes on the front page of my blog.

3. More specific writing section
I have taken out some of the articles I posted in the writing section of my blog in order to make the topics more specific and relevant. The articles that will be posted on this section will, from now on, be all about political theories and commentaries on current events. I do not really consider myself a political analyst. I am just some ordinary guy who values liberty and individual freedom and believe that our policies should reflect these in order The writing section will now contain solely my opinions and advocacies.

What to expect from Harry's blog?

With the use of Wordpress stats, I realized I lost half of my viewers for the month of July as compared to June. I am also able to see the trends of what kind of posts increase my traffic and what doesn't. For instance, I noticed that the topics my viewers are interested in are going out with friends, senti posts about my girlfriend, and movie reviews. On the other hand, they don't seem to like it when I write about food but then it is something that gets me ranked on Google (maybe because of all the weird things I eat). And writing about food is something I enjoy, so don't expect that to be going away anytime soon.

You will surely be expecting more of the innovative blogging features that I come up with. I am constantly thinking of ways how I can make my blog and portfolio more interactive and innovative. So be sure to bookmark my site and check it out from time to time!
