SEM Philippines, SEO Consultant Philippines, SEO Philippines Consultant & Google Caffeine Going Live!

For the past few months, I never did dare to look at my site’s ranking on some keywords which I deem valuable in my practice as an SEO Philippines Consultant because I was practically so overwhelmed with a lot of “things to do”.

Moreover, I was so busy to have tested a lot of “signals”  on the Google caffeine sandbox effects as it is about to be implemented or is already in full-blown in some date centers.

Try to look at the message from Google.

Thank you!

We appreciate all the feedback from people who searched on our Caffeine sandbox.

Based on the success we’ve seen, we believe Caffeine is ready for a larger audience. Soon we will activate Caffeine more widely, beginning with one data center. This sandbox is no longer necessary and has been retired, but we appreciate the testing and positive input that webmasters and publishers have given.

The Google Caffeine sandbox test page is no longer available and it is crystal clear based on the message above that the new Google algorithm is going live!

So what will be the future of SEM Philippines or SEO Consultant Philippines when the Google Caffeine is in full blast? I have some questions in mind as follows:

1. What other significant changes were made in the Google algorithm that every SEO  consultant or SEO Philippines Consultant service company should understand?

2. Will link acquisition still be the heavyweight contender that every SEO practitioner adapts as their topmost priority in ranking their clients well? Or will the social networking sites and social integration & interaction of brands and products be the next big thing that search engines like Google is driving into in ranking pages?

3.  Can Google profile and Sidewiki impact searches and ranks?

4. Is Google wave a concrete evidence of Google’s direction by giving importance to social interactions/media?

Whatever the answer maybe, it is vivid that social media optimization (SMO) and search engine optimization (SEO) should start morphing together as one and that every SEO Consultant Philippines consultant must start acquiring expertise on both fields in order to grow better as an Online Marketer.

Social Media- A boon or bane among IT network administrators?

batman-jokerSocial Media per se is no longer a new term among internet marketers as it has been one of our primary platforms in reaching out to our prospective clients online. The growing population of internet users specifically in Asia has been astounding and that this online social phenomenon (social media) shows no sign of stopping at all.

Fairly said, it is the way to go when you want visibility, awareness, market, traffic, mileage and of course, conversion for your product/brand. It is the cheapest yet effective way of marketing your product/brand.

Hear ye! I am not talking about the future here because this social media platform is already the here-and-now way to market your brand.

I really could not understand some IT policies that block social networking sites and social bookmarking sites when the said guilty companies’ core businesses are into customer service, entertainment, press relations and other business models that need to be promoted globally so as to be billed as world-class companies.

It is really a counter-productive measure to execute IT policies of blocking social media sites among its employees because of its inadequacy to prevent possible virus attacks. It doesn’t really address the real issue of IT security risks by simply blocking social media sites. I call it a cheap shot!
