Last year, I got the chance to participate in the Ituloy AngSulong SEO competition and won a prize in the Yahoo and Google category. It was a great experience and has made me a better blogger.
This year, I've decided to be a sponsor of Paradise Philippines - The P600,000 Bayanihan SEO Contest and very excited about it.
The keyword for this year's contest is "Paradise Philippines". No one is too newbie to be part of this contest. Win or lose, you will certainly learn a lot and shall be useful in all your blogging or SEO undertaking. You have to join and experience it, in order to find out what I mean. (You should also know that the SEO World Champion is a Filipino.)
As posted in Marc's announcement:
"Bayanihan (pronounced buy-uh-nee-hun) is a Filipino tradition wherein neighbors would help a relocating family by gathering under their house, and carrying it to its new location. More generally, the word bayanihan has come to mean a communal spirit that makes seemingly impossible feats possible through the power of unity and cooperation. SEO Philippines takes the bayanihan spirit to the SEO world with the first ever social SEO contest."
A team can be organized to work or collaborate in order to increase your chances of winning this contest. Those who own multiple sites stand a great chance in competing as well for this project.
According to Marc, the contest code generator will be up soon. Once online, checkpoint dates shall be adjusted as well.
Good luck and have fun!
