8 Things Your Need to Put On Your Blog

8 Things you need to put on your blog

While I was blogging my way to a great blogger (hope the odds are not against me.) I have noticed some useful things that most bloggers put on their blog. Aside from the most important ones like the Post Title, the Title itself, or the Blog post / articles (this one I consider the most important of all.)

One similarity I usually see from all the great blogs out there is the Link Tab or Navigation bar. The navigation bar allows users or readers to go through your blog more easily. In this part of the blog, the blog owner can put links to the most important and most relevant things about his blog. There you can put links to a single post like an About Me tab or a link to a Category, a Disclaimer perhaps, etc.

The second important thing I notice and gives significance in making your subscribers grow is the Easy Subscription Notice or the One Click Subscription link similar to picture below. In this way, if the readers who come across your blog happen to like your post, he can easily click on the link and get updates from your blog. Having subscribed readers will give you better future traffic and most importantly will give a you a relationship between the readers.

Third is the Shoutbox or Chat Box, thru this your visitors can easily communicate with you, whether it be for exchanging links, a suggestion, or it could be just a simple note telling the blog owner that he happen to pass by. The benefit you could get with this is that it allows interaction with the people around your same endeavor. Fellow bloggers will then be able to leave links easily, which could give way to easy sharing of information.

Fourth is the Comment form. In this case, here in my blog, I made it more accessible to readers to just type-in their comment beneath each post to allow easy access. Comments are very important, since they measure how good your article is. You might not get comments easily in a day or two. But rest assure one will come by and might as well share something useful or just drop by and give you a greeting. Or perhaps he could leave a link to an additional information that might be useful to your readers which is also relevant to your post.

Fifth is the Sitemeter, all bloggers might be familiar about this. There are many ways to track website traffic. I got Sitemeter and Google Analytics to do the job for me. But it is Sitemeter that I use more often to have a look at incoming traffic with just a click or two. If I want more detailed reports then its Google Analytics that I turn to. Getting to know your traffic stats is very important. It will allow you to understand more about your blog. Which in turn, will allow you to discover your strengths and weaknesses in SEO. I don’t want to go down further with this topic because I know it would take one long post if I will go on, maybe on my coming posts.

Sixth, the Pagerank Icon. Almost every blog I’ve been reading always has its own Pagerank icon. For those who doesn’t know yet, a Pagerank icon shows the readers the Google’s view of the importance of the blog or website. 0/10 for the unranked and 10/10 for the highest. In my case its 3/10, which is fair enough for a newbie blogger like me. Its also a way to show-off to your readers and advertisers about the grade of your blog.

Seventh, the Community Icons. These icons in attractive colors are there to serve a number of useful things. One is, they are there because you need to put them, and otherwise you may get disqualified if you wont, for a service from their website or blogging community that you are using. And why do you think you need to join this blogging communities? You have there, MyBlogLog, Blogtoplist, Blogcatalog, Top Blogs, Million blog list, etc.

I really hate to put this images cause they will cause delays on loading time for your blog. But the benefits outweigh the negatives. These blogging communities are feed readers, they drive traffic to your site, and they will link to your blog and give votes on your page rankings, and most importantly get you connected to other bloggers and make your blog be discovered. Other than that they will make your blog look like a real blog and make it look more professional.

And lastly, so you thought I forgot, I consider this the “Meal of the Party”, the ADS, Adverts, Advertisements, etc. , they come in many different ways. Some are ad links, picture ads, a combination of both, etc. These are the most loved part of most bloggers, not all bloggers though, since there are also successful blogs without the advertisements that I know of. Pay per click advertisement is one of the most used ways of earning money online. They generate revenue, and help you pay your Internet bills, Hosting Fees, and the golden time you use to write articles. You have there, to name a few, Google Adsense, Adbrite, Bidvertiser, Kontera, Chitika, Amazon, Nuffnang, Digxa, etc.

So that’s about it, the eight useful things you need to put on your blog, I wanted to elaborate more on each of the items, but I think it would require a whole post. Maybe I will write a separate post for each item in the future.

I hope I have shared enough information that might add to your knowledge as a blogger. On this post, The Eight Useful Things You Need To Put On Your Blog, I only described what you need to put on your blog that can be preceived virtually. There are also many integral blog parts that I need to discuss, like the Meta Tags, the Description Tag, the Title, etc.

Facebook and the Filipinos

Facebook and the Filipinos

It’s really amazing how Filipinos love acquaintances, such desire leads Filipinos to join social groups. And that desire coupled with technology and the Internet leads Filipinos to join Social Medias. Social medias or Social Networking such as, to name a few, Friendster, MySpace, Flixter, Tagged, etc.

But one thing I have noticed is that more and more Filipino people are joining Facebook. Facebook is a free-access social-networking website that is operated and privately-owned by Facebook, Inc. Users of their service can join networks connecting them to families and friends. Thru Facebook you will be able to find old friends from your childhood or your higschool and college days. Not only that, you would also have a chance to discover new friends. Sharing information on a click of a mouse. Communication has never been this easier.

I am really amazed how easy it is to share things now-a-days, especially thru Facebook. Facebook Features include a Wall, it is a place on a users profile wherein you could easily put comments and post messages on a users profile page.

Also included are, of course, Photos that would enable users to upload photos to different user albums. One unique feature of the Photo section of Facebook is how a user be able to Tag another user on his friends list if he or she is on the photo, a notification will then be sent to that user. Making it more easier to share.

Another useful feature on Facebook is the Status message. This is the feature, which allows users to announce any thing, it could be something you’re doing presently, your mood for the day, and in my case I use it to advertise my blog post. ^_^ Sorry guys its not spamming, its social media and it’s the way I share information.

Users also have daily News Feeds on every homepage, this shows the recent activities of your friends, from changing their profile photo to where they send comments, etc.

Another favorite of mine is how easily you can add friends, just one click and they are yours. There is also an interactive panel on the bottom part of your browser that would enable you to see who is online on your friends list and have the option to chat with them.

Its free join now here

And believe it or not! Facebook has been used to serve legal documents and make people appear on court! Wohoo!!!

On the news What can you say about that?

Top 200 Keywords

Matt CuttsTop 200 Keywords - Knowing what people write.

This day I will reveal the top 200 keywords or searched terms for the past 150 days on the Internet from a very good reliable source I was discussing from my last post titled “My 16 days of blogging” about giving you the top 500 keywords, however the top 500 keywords that I have was out of date, so I decided to search for the latest top 200 keywords on the internet.

Why am I sharing you this? Keywords are very important in SEO and SEM (Search Engine Optimization / Search Engine Marketing). As Matt Cutts said on an interview about how to get better visibility on the web, “The easiest thing is think about what people are gonna type to want to find your site.” Matt Cutts is a Software Engineer and works for the Search Quality group in Google, specializing in search engine optimization issues.

These keywords would give you an idea on which words you are going to use in writing your posts. These keywords are what people are writing on search engines. So having a post or 2 about each keyword will definitely give you traffic.

How I View Blogging Ethics

I just received this email from a fellow blogger doing her thesis about Blogging Ethics.
This is my honest answers to the following questions. Any reactions are accepted.

Name (optional): Francis Daniel Maning
Age: 26
Location:Cebu Philippines
Blog Title and Category: iStayl Sugbo: A collection of Random Thoughts. Sushi Chef from Mizu Japanese Restaurant. Subscribe and get updates on new trends, useful stuff, and more..


A. On your personal ethical standards
1. What is your perception on ethics? Do you think you are applying it in your blogging activity? Why or why not?
Ethics refers to a properly defined guideline being used by an individual, in this case a blogger, which he could use somehow to make himself determine things from right or wrong. Follow what is acceptable and be a model of truth.

Yes, by doing so you would earn “Trust” from your readers, in turn you would get more subscribers.

2. What ethical standards do you apply in your blog? Do you currently follow any or a personal Code of Ethics?

Since my blog is not that complicated and have not reached its full potential yet, I am basing my ethical principles on my conscience, conformity with the law, fairness, and the passion of delivering quality information to readers.

3. If you were to draft your own Blogger’s Code of Ethics, what principles of ethics (example: honesty, accountability, truth, etc) will you include in it? Briefly elaborate on each and give examples on how you can show each principle.
If I were to draft my own bloggers code of ethics, I would base it on the Rotarians 4 way test.. ^_^

1. Is it the Truth?
Honesty and Fairness. A blogger should be honest and be fair in delivering information. Provide information as much as possible by disclosing and elaborating the source (if any). A blogger should not post untruthful and biased articles that might mislead and harm users. Also be accountable for the things that you write and always be ready for change and accept suggestions from readers.

2. Is it fair to all Concerned?
Always keep in mind, that everything you write might affect readers. A blogger should think about his social responsibility.

3. Will it build goodwill and better friendship?
A blogger should always be kind in writing articles. It should not provoke hate and discrimination. Nor it would cause harm between 2 parties, products, and personalities. Etc..

4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
A blog should be constructive and not destructive to the community.

4. Among the many blogging problems and ethical issues that arise now, which do you believe should be addressed?
There are many issues at hand that should be looked upon in the present time. But there is one deviation on ethical standards that a blogger should not practice. And that is how business individuals use blogs and bloggers to gain search engine rankings thru BUYING LINKS.

5. Personally, what do you think is the importance of having ethical standards in blogging?

Having ethical standards in blogging would give you confidence and to minimize the problems that you may encounter in the future.
B. On the Bloggers’ Code of Ethics

1. Have you come across any Bloggers’ Code of Ethics online? If so, what version is it? Answer: NONE

2. If not online, how did you learn about it? What was your primary reaction?

3. Do you agree with the provisions stated there, and the principles that were tackled?

4. Do you apply the Bloggers’ Code of Ethics in your blogging? Why and how do you apply it (through your language, designs, etc)?

5. Does the knowledge of the existing Bloggers’ Code of Ethics pressure you to follow it? Why?

6. Do you think it is necessary to have a Bloggers’ Code of Ethics? Is it really implementable? Why or why not?
Yes, the blogosphere needs to have a Bloggers’ Code of Ethics. Is not a question if its implementable or not. As of the moment, we should focus on creating a body that would implement it to start with.

7. Is it possible for the entire blogosphere to follow a single Bloggers’ Code of Ethics? Why or why not?
It depends upon the individual. I doubt that the whole blogging community will follow it. However, it would be nice to know that somebody would be starting it.

8. How do you think will a Bloggers’ Code of Ethics change the way bloggers blog? Or will it not affect anything?
If it affects a blogger in any way, for sure I see it as a long term investment. When you write quality blog, you get good results. If you follow the rules, everything will be fine.

9. What do you think is the relationship of Code of Ethics and freedom of expression?
That’s a very sensitive issue. However, I see no difference between both if they both serve the same purpose. For truth and fairness.

16 Days of Blogging

16 Days of Blogging

"If you are a newbie in blogging and have just started to put up a blog and you need traffic. Its time to subscribe to my post and be updated. Follow me during my 16 days of blogging"
On February 23 up to March 10, 2009, I would be much active in blogging. My goal is to increase page visit, site traffic, number of feed subscribers, and Alexa ranking. During those 16 days, I would be creating useful content and utilize the top 500 searched keywords on the net.

Furthermore, if possible, I don’t know how hard it would be, I would try to do some research and eventually come up with a method on how to increase my Google Page Rank from Page Rank 3/10 to Page Rank 4/10. Just one number up, that is if Google would permit me. I have no idea if 16 days would be enough anyway; it’s worth a try.

Additionally, I would be posting some articles about what I would be doing during those 16 days. I would be mentioning some useful reference sites. Get to know some successful bloggers and learn their methods as well as techniques on how to increase traffic, increase Alexa page rank, increase Google ranking, and how to use search engines as a source of traffic. I would be getting advice from professionals; I would be watching video interviews from famous and credible webmasters.

I would be asking opinions and tips from fellow Cebuano bloggers on Search Engine Optimizations. Convince one or two personality from the Cebu Bloggers Society to write for iStayl Sugbo a short word of advice for newbie bloggers.

I would also include on my posts on how to start your own blog and provide step-by-step guidelines on the first things you need to do on your blog and make your way to the blogosphere. I would be posting an illustration comparing my previous traffic to the traffic I would be getting within those 16 days of blogging and would write about it and analyze the reports.

If you are a newbie in blogging and has just started to put up a blog. It is time to subscribe to my posts and be updated. Follow me during my 16 days of blogging, starting February 23 up to March 10, 2009. By following my blog you would be able to gain ideas on how to increase your blog traffic and rank your pages on search engines.

For professional webmasters reading this post, it is also a time for you to share your ideas and help fellow bloggers to become a successful blogger.

The Philippines - My country, my home

The Philippines - My country, my home

“My home, my country, my native land, my Philippines.”

The Philippines is the place of my birth and may it also be the place where I shall cease my life. The Philippines is rich in treasures, God given natural beauty abound the archipelago. There are many beautiful destinations that one could venture, both local and tourists alike. The Philippines is rich in wonders, to name a few such as the Tubataha Reef, The Rice Terraces, The Chocolate Hills of Bohol, the perfectly cone shaped Mayon Volcano, etc.

The Philippines is also rich in culture. Influenced by different parts of the globe, the Philippine culture has become a melting pot of different heritages and ancestry. Majority of which are the Indo, Malays, and Chinese races. Yet, no matter where they may belong, a natural born Filipino will always be a Filipino. Born in the land of the Pearl of the Orient and the Cradle of the Brave.

By blood or by heart, Filipinos are close family oriented. Filipinos are hospitable and have high respect for elders. Filipinos are also very grateful people. They are hardworking and they enjoy life and are high in spirits. Intelligent and open minded. Filipinos are God fearing.

Every Filipino that have left for a job abroad or have migrated abroad, surely would come back home and visit their native land. Every pinoy have their own lasting bond from whence they were born. They treasure memories they have left behind in their homeland. This is evident in the way that almost all Filipinos who left their country would always contact and ask “Kumusta na dha sa Pinas? (hows everything there in the Philippines?). And would surely come back and visit.

All these and more, makes me proud I am a Filipino. The sparkle of your flag is victory that shines. Its stars and sun shall forever never dim.

Artificial Traffic vs Content Driven Traffic

Artificial Traffic vs Content Driven Traffic

In this post, I would like to share with you a little idea of mine that might work in increasing your blog traffic. I am not an expert in SEO, but there is one technique that I guess might work for you if you are still starting your blog.

That is to write, write, write, and write. Create volume content. Write new post as long as you can. Give your blog a post each day. By creating newer content will give you a higher chance that your blog be ranked on search engines. In turn you will be gaining natural traffic from search engines, which is a good idea.

Avoid using techniques that would give your blog artificial traffic, like auto surfing, card dropping, etc. Although I am not really against that, since some web masters still claim that it would also help you increase your Alexa traffic ranking, although artificially.

I have done that too and indeed it surely gave my blog an Alexa Traffic rank of 750,000. But when I decided to stop because I was tired of it, my Alexa rank dropped to 2,000,000.

Having a 2million Alexa traffic rank is not a good sight, but it is the truth. Too far from the artificial 750,000. So if I were you, don’t give your blog a LIE Traffic. Now I’m on my way to doing my best to increase my Alexa page ranking naturally thru my posts.

Below is a Graph showing the unique site visit of As you can see in the illustration, on the month of April, I started to learn acquiring traffic from auto surf, card dropping, blog hopping, etc. Traffic gained was amazing, it went to over 2,000 unique page visits for the month of April, however, I stopped doing it because all I see from the referrals was more from these artificial traffic generating sites. Which, doesn’t sound fulfilling on my part.

(note: as of February 12, 2009)

By the month of September, blog traffic went back to its normal/natural 100 unique visits each month. Doesn’t sound good, disappointed, and discouraging. However, I realized when I looked at the referrals on the report, it showed that most traffic sources are from search engines, which gave me an idea that if only I could create content that might interest search engine users, then I could increase my traffic.

Since then, starting the month of October, I began creating useful posts, not to mention attractive post that plays well on search engines. As you can see on the graph, site visits are going up. Not a good number yet, but it is assured that readers do come to my blog and there is an improvement since the day I started my blog.

How to become a successful blogger?

How to become a successful blogger?

In the pursuit of becoming a real Blogger, like most blogs I envy. Questions prompted my mind, how do I become a successful blogger? How will my blog be known to the world? How will I gain traffic like most other blogs do? How will I monetize thru my blog?

In my constant search for answers, there is one real truth that I have uncovered. What really separates good blogs from the rest is its “Content”. It is already proven that useful content drives traffic. Choose a topic that might interest other people. Write about something other people don’t do. Create some interest in the things you write. Write in your own words and don’t imitate anybody, be natural. Provide as much information as you can. Put up illustrations or pictures that might entice readers.

I believe that content alone could give you page rankings, however, as I have noticed it is also important to build and maintain a good linking network. Do blog hopping and make friends thru chat boxes in each blog. Ask for link exchange, until such time that your pages will be crawled.

Successful bloggers use keywords that are relevant to the topic at hand, repeat them over in your post but not to the extent that your post may look funny because of repeated keywords. It is also advisable to stick in to one kind of topic, or you can create posts that are related with each other.

A successful blogger must also be patient and be satisfied of the little achievements that he would be making. Don’t rush things and always put in mind that you are blogging for the purpose of sharing information, make friends, be part of the community, make a difference thru the things you write and be heard, earning money online should come next. If you think that way, you will be surprised of the results.

Talisman Online

Talisman Online

Talisman Online is a free to play 3d MMORPG. This is my new online game discovery. Graphics is good even with minimum requirement. The game loads faster and the interface is very user friendly.

Characters are Monk, Wizard, Assassin, Fairy and Tamer. What makes this game unique is the abundant numbers of game quest in each level. There are also many ways to gain experience. Even when your offline you will get a little amount of Character Experience by doing Secret Soul Exercise. There is also competition that would make you gain even more experience level by level. There are also repetitive Reputation Quests that you can do all over again for fun or for a fee from other players. Aside from that, if you can recruit apprentices you can also gain more experience from the Master and Apprentice system.

The map design, flora, and fauna, are amazing. The monsters come in many different forms, altogether with different scenario bosses that you and your friends could tackle. Cheaters and boters are never welcomed, so game is insured fair play. Bot at your own risk! Talisman points can be bought with real cash but if you play good enough, you can purchase T-points thru auctions.

My Wizard Character on All Star Server is already 35 level as of this post and still continues playing. My character name is blurem23, hope I will be seeing you there! Thanks for reading!
