Sponsoring the Wika 2007 Blog Writing Contest

Earlier this week, I've made the decision to sign up as a sponsor for the Wika 2007 Blog Writing Contest. The idea was brought to my attention by the moderators of the Pinoy Blogosphere.

The aim of this competition is to promote and strengthen our language. The submission of entries will be from August 6 to 18.

The winner shall be announced on August 29. This contest is open to all Filipino bloggers here and abroad.

Prizes ranged from P1000 to P5000 in cash. It also includes domain name and web hosting.

I'll measure the effectiveness of this sponsorship by the number of persons signing up as a member in the Club.

Sponsoring and Monitoring the Paradise Philippines SEO Competition

Last week, I disseminated information about the Paradise Philippines - P600,000 Bayanihan SEO contest where DigitalFilipino is one of the sponsors. From hereon, I will be monitoring developments in the competition.

My motivation in sponsoring the contest and how I'll measure its effectiveness includes:
  • increase in search engine ranking of the sites I'm promoting through the competition.
  • increase membership in my two communities.
  • attract bloggers and content writers to join my ad revenue and content writing programs.
  • get my personal site associated with the Filipina keyword.
  • sustaining my primary website's campaign as an e-commerce resource.
Whether I will succeed in doing the above remains to be seen in the months to come. Once the contest code generator is up and entries began posting the code in their site, I shall be monitoring its effectiveness and write about my observations.

Those who will blog about the things I post here and provide interesting insights, can expect link love as well. This applies to old and new posts.

Have fun to all Paradise Philippines - P600,000 Bayanihan SEO contest competition participants!
