We’re on Page Rank 2 – Thank You Very Much

Two months ago I was so happy announcing that this blog went on Page Rank 1 after seventy one (71) days of blogging.  Today, exactly after one hundred fifty seven (157) days of blogging, I am in high spirits to announce that WE ARE ON PAGE RANK 2!

PR2 Balut

Again this achievement is reached out of pure hard work  - no fancy paid marketing strategies, just pure passionate writing and blogging.

THANK YOU to the high and mighty One for this blessing, to my family and friends who have always been supportive to my writing and blogging passion.  Thanks also to Google for the ranking, and most of all THANKS TO YOU my dear readers and followers for patronizing, reading, appreciating and following my blog.  EXTRA THANK YOU to my very supportive blogger friends (you know who you are).

I am more driven to blog passionately, entertainingly and responsively. MARAMING SALAMAT  po!

thank you

  6. Congratulations! It's often difficult to grow PageRank with a Blogspot blog. You're doing well!

    1. THANK YOU Amanda!
      I totally agree with you it's really difficult.
      I visited your blog and you have one great site :)
      THANKS for the visit and for the wishes. Good luck to you!

  7. Ehrrr, you also need to thank the PR blogs who links with you po Ms. Balut. When you link with a blog with a page rank, they tend to lift your page rank up.

    When I started blogging, I didn't know about this. When people say they wanna link exhange, I said OK. Then my blog went from PR3 to PR2 because unknowingly, there were blogs with no PRs that were linking with me. So just last January, I became extra careful with who I exchange link with. Some do take advantage you know.

    But of course, this is also your hardwork: writing quality content and driving traffic to your blog. I'm still not aware of SEO and how it really works, but hey, blogging has other benefits apart from that. Look, I'm talking with a friend now (you) so that's more than enough. LOL!

    Congrats and hopefully, your PR increases next time so you'll be the one to pull me up on the next google update. LOL!

    1. eto na ang wagas na comment na pinaka-hihintay ko - ang sensible na makatang si YKOG :)

      Ehrrr - actually Mike I already thanked them (including you:), heto kayo/sila
      "my very supportive blogger friends (you know who you are)"

      I'll share you a secret - I've been in the internet industry quite LONGER than I'm doing my personal blogs :). I worked with bigger and complex sites than blogs and part of my work is SEO/LInk Building so I can humbly say that i have a "bit" of knowledge about SEO :) (konti lang namang kaalaman). I'll share a simple tip later at the end of this comment.

      when someone requests for a (reciprocal) link exchange, hindi ako tumatanggi lalo na pag maganda ang pagkaka-request. I don't mind kung mas mataas pa ang PR ko, gagawan ko pa rin ng paraan na mai-link ko yung tao in any way. That's the reason why I always tag/link blogger friends in my posts = they are outright links and better than being in a "link farm".

      Here are my simple rules on link exchange:
      Kung sino nag request sya mauna maglink, usually ang nagre-request naman eh yung lower PR. Pero after 2 weeks hindi pa rin nagre-reciprocate eh tanggalin mo na kahit mataas pa PR nya useless yun LOL.

      I entertain link exchange request without worrying that my PR would go down kasi I'm confident that I can get it back thru "GREAT CONTENT", social media, etc.

      On blog roll: pag nilagay ako sa blog roll I'll put you back in my roll. And when u go on top of the roll siguradong babasahin ko yung post mo kahit hindi ako interesado lol. I call it appreciation na nag-effort yung tao na nag-post. ngayon kung hindi ko maintindihan ang pinagsasabi eh titingin na lang ako sa pichurs. at pag wala namang pichurs ay ewan na nga ba! ha ha ha

      (sana naman wag katulad ng iba na nagbabasa lang at nagko-comment kasi magpo-post sila after nilang mag-comment= para basahin at komentahan pabalik :(

      kung nauna naman akong naglagay sa blog roll ko't lagpas ng isang buwang hindi mo ako pinapansin at hindi mo man lang nililingon ang blog ko, aba'y maunawain lang ako pero hindi naman tanga kaya tatanggalin din kita he he

      And I TOTALLY agree with you that there are LOTS OF BENEFITS in blogging so we should not worry too much about links. Having a sensible friend like you is one (heto na... nagkakabolahan na lol).

      at kung hindi pa man masabing tips yung mga nauna kung nabanggit, eh heto pa ang isang tip sa baba :) Pero bago ang lahat MARAMING SALAMAT sa pagdalaw kapatid! I'll be happy to pull you up or anybody if I'll be blessed to rank higher than PR2.

      Runner-up na naman tayo sa longest comment :)))

      a simple TIP about linking:
      the search engines think like this: if a site has lots of links from other websites then it MUST BE IMPORTANT"

    2. Hello Ms. Balut, my brother asked me to Google something so I'm forced to turn on the PC. Since andito na lang naman ako, I remembered you told me to check back on this post.

      Huwaawww! Thank you for the tips. Haha, seriously, that made sense. I'm a bit impatient when it comes to stuff like 'waiting for two weeks' but I will certainly try that.

      Good morning, I'm off to take a shower. Will read this again next time I do blogwalking. I certainly have understood the content but would like to dwell on it longer.

      See ya!

    3. hala sige talagang babalik pa ha ha. wait kita :))
      take note mo yung last tip :) see ya!

  8. hi, congratz sa'yo.. dati PR3 ako pru bumaba, hindi na kasi ako naka pag update ng madalas eh...busibusihan sa life.. hehehe.

    1. hello THANKS!
      sayang naman yung PR3 :( but kung worthwhile naman yung pinagbusibusihan mo ok lang :)

      magka-exchange links ba tayo? ha ha

  9. congrats tita balut...ang lupit ng comments mo kay mike...di maarok ng aking munting kaisipan..hehe BTW congrats ulit...nawa ay umabot sa PR 9 ang blog mo (mala-google) hehehe :)

    1. THANK YOU Tito Lester lol.
      You're ONE BIG factor for this level up, napaka-supportive mo :)
      aha ha ha di ba maarok? basta take note mo lang yung last tip.
      PR 9 won't happen to a blog. I think didn't reach it? It's kind of "Mission Impossible" unless it's the US Govt website and Twitter - they have PR10 LOL.

  10. hi, thanks for stopping by at my blog :)
    sure I'd love to add your blogs to mine. Will let you know ASAP when done okay? have a great day.
    congrats on your PR.

Happy 1st... of September! (Re-post: 95 Days Before Christmas)

Happy 1st of September everyone! Today I started downloading my favorite collection of Christmas songs and add them back on my playlist.  I am playing the Ray Conniff selection while editing this post. Please don't be confused with the content/title of this post.  Today, 1st of September is technically 113 days more before Christmas . The following content is a re-post from my former blog "The Lucky Blog" originally titled as "95 Days Before Christmas"... ~ It kind of surprised me big time when I heard from today’s morning news that it is just 95 more days before Christmas!  I can’t help but utter the over used but oh so true phrase “time flies so fast”!  And it flies more faster when you are so caught up with the daily rushes of life that you missed to savor the moment when the most anticipated season of the year is fast approaching. For those who’s been following my blog posts, it is so obvious that for almost two months now, I am having one helluv
