The June 2009 Nursing Licensure Examinations (NLE) results will soon come out and become available for viewing to those interested in getting hold of the results. More information would soon be available but for now let’s talk about SEO.
It’s a Pinoy SEO thing
Definitely not a crime, but the trend seems to be that Filipino bloggers make it a habit of posting license exam results on their personal blogs or journals both as a means of getting more search engine traffic as well as providing the Filipino public with the basic information they would need. Filipino SEO professionals and enthusiasts would absolutely grab hold of the opportunity not only due to the traffic such a post can conjure but mainly with the sense of achievement they would get if their post happen to end up on top of Google’s search results for a particular topic such as the Nursing Licensure Examinations (NLE) results.
Slow-and-steady vs Rapid-and-Disastrous SEO
Archon Digital have long since observed and reviewed such posting trends among Pinoys but have never exactly jumped in on the bandwagon mainly due to time constraints. Most of the time the work schedule doesn’t offer the luxury of five minutes to sit down and write a post in time for such a trend. Another reason is the approach has always been one of caution as there has always been a part of Archon Digital that refuses to sensationalize or take advantage of other people’s plight by capitalizing on their misery. That is the main reason Archon Digital has not joined any of the Hayden Kho – Katrina Halili sex scandal video SEO bandwagon (by the way, off the record.. Fμ¢k that sick bastard for what he’s done, may he pay dearly for his deeds) or the other sensationalized events in the Philippine’s politically-spiced-pop-culture environment.
Archon Digital would always stand by what it has written for as long as it is factual and does not step on other citizen’s or organization’s rights.
Trending – Is it Worth It?
A plethora of subjects can be written if you base on the current trends in Google. Subjects ranging lately from Michael Jackson’s death, michael jackson funeral, michael jackson autopsy results, michael jackson autopsy photos (may he rest-in-peace) and even to politically flavoured ones like Cap and Trade, Cap and Trade bill, or who voted for Cap and Trade, Cap and Trade Congress, Cap and Trade vote in the U.S. Congress. Even the local news such as anti-Con-As and with our belover professor Randy David going after the much-vilified Gloriath are hot subjects Pinoy bloggers can write about.
Then again, writing for the sake of writing to go along with trends seems pointless at times if not for getting some SEO juice. Which puts us bloggers in a spot, as we find ourselves in a situation to decide if we are writing for a purpose or are we writing just for the sake of trending and SEO.
Imagine if that was you or your loved one on the subject of Google Trends, what would you do? Or how would you react?
SEO for SEO’s sake, are there moral bounds being crossed by bloggers? are we all in for a ride like the little firefly playing with the lamp that is Google?
