Marc Macalua ( organized this contest to help spread SEM or search engine marketing awareness in the Philippines. It isn't enough to just build a web site, you have to promote it so that others will visit it.

My entry, the Isulong Seoph Podcast at has been bouncing around pages 3 and 5 of the Google search results for the phrase "isulong seoph."

Surprisingly, Jozzua's (Isulong SEOPH with SEO Comics) has dropped out of the race. His site is currently ranked #5. Alfa Mercado has also quit, even if she's just three places away from the Top 10.

The current Number 1 contender is which is an 8-article site. How did such a site grab the number 1 slot for the search phrase "isulong seoph" even if there are a lot of other competitors (some having more than 8 articles)?

That site managed to get a lot of links from other sites.

The number 2 site is, and it contains 50+ pages.

So the main SEO lesson here is that what others think about your site carries more weight in the search engine rankings that what your site says about itself. :-)
