Review on Majestic's Backlink Checker

Image
It's been a long time since I posted about SEO tools and gave a detailed review. Somehow, it motivated me to write today because this website is giving away a 13-inch Apple MacBook Air this Thanksgiving. Okay, am not after the prize (that's true!) but I wanted to give you a step by step analysis on how we use Majestic.

I've been working with this industry for almost 8 years (whew!), I witnessed the importance of using SEO tools in our daily lives, we called them "lifesavers" or "early warning detectors."

Whether your website is new or old, it is a mandatory that you perform a diagnostics specially checking the backlinks. We didn't know that "some" harmful links hurt our Search Engine performance and rankings. If we didn't perform or anal…

Elfster Meet and Gift Magnet and Favorite Chocolate Exchange!

Image
This is my second time to join Elfster Gift Exchange, there are two items need to send to exchange partner: Fun Magnets and Chocolates.

I don't have time to shop for these so I just ordered both items in Amazon (shipped separately!). Same rules from the previous postcard exchange. Elfster will randomly select your exchange partner and start sending your gift (if there items on the wishlist, you may check their Elfster).

I'm glad that my exchange partners were so generous! I love their gifts. Again, thank you Elfster and to my exchange partners. Looking forward to another gift giving activity next month.

How about you? Have you started your Christmas (wish)list? Or tried any other gift giving activity? I know there are risks involved like "trusting" the gift exchange platform and the person they randomly select as your partner.

Happy Thanksgiving in advance!

Save hearts with art – Rotarians

MANILA – The Rotary Club of Makati West (RCMW) is calling on art lovers to support their annual all-sculpture exhibit-sale dubbed “Alay Sining” to be held at The Gallery, Greenbelt 5, Makati City from November 12 to 15, 2015. Now on its eight year, Alay Sining 8’s theme is “Art with a Heart” which complements the Rotary International’s theme of “Be a Gift to the World”.

Alay Sining is a fund-raising initiative for one of RCMW’s signature projects, the Gift of Life program, which gives congenital heart disease (CHD) patients under the program with free heart surgeries.


According to RCMW President Victor “Junvee” Vital, supporting the art-for-a cause exhibit will not only mean supporting Filipino children with heart ailments but also local artists.

Both seasoned and new sculptors will be contributing pieces to the Alay Sining, and donating a portion of the sale price of their art pieces to the exhibit’s intended recipients – the CHD patients that will be given free heart surgeries under th…
