Paradise Philippines Learns To Blogtimize!

I'm officially joining the Paradise Philippines SEO contest. This will just be one of my numerous contest entries. Why so many entries? Because the more entries, the more chances of winning. Just read the rules here if you want to join too.

No, don't expect that I'll be posting about the beauty of the Philippines as a paradise here. That's why I just changed the title to Paradise Philippines learns to Blogtimize, because I will still post update here about blogtimization, optimizing your blogs. Of course, I will also post some updates here about what is going on to the contest.

Hope I learn more on this contest. The more I learn, the more I can share more stuffs here. So, wish me luck. If you want to help me, just link to this blog with the keyword Paradise Philippines. Yes, use the paradise philippines keyword. But you can use other keywords too like Paradise Philippines learns to Blogtimize, or Philippines Is A Paradise, or whatever you like. Just make sure the keyword contains the word paradise and philippines on it. Ok? Thank you very much!

Go Philippines - my paradise on earth!

How To Increase Your Feed Subscriptions

This is based on my personal experience. One of my blogs is averaging 600 unique hits everyday but my Feedburner subscribers were only 30 at the average. After doing some changes last February 9, I was able to increase the subscriber 3x in just 3 weeks. I already hit the 100 feed subscribers today.

Here is the list of what I did:
  • I enabled full feed subscription.
  • I enabled e-mail subscription.
  • I put the subscribe to this blog via e-mail box above the fold.
  • I put a little description on what the subscribe to this blog via e-mail box does.
After doing the above mentioned tasks, I'm getting an average of 3 e-mail subscription everyday! You can check my blog to see it for yourself.

I learned that people prefer full feed against summary feed. Most people still don't know what an RSS feed is. They only know how to check e-mail and surf sites. Putting a subscribe via e-mail box will not help unless you tell them what it does. =)

That 's all folks! Try doing the suggestions I made here and give me your feedback, ok?
