Mastering Online Conference (MORCon) 2011. A day to remember for the SEO Organization Philippines. A day with some of the best Search Engine Optimization masters in the country. A day full of knowledge and booze.
Who said that we don’t have to time to enjoy our industry? MORCon 2011 is one of the most celebrated event of SEO ORG Philippines. This day was far more special for everyone knowing that Sir Benj Arriola is in the Philippines and its the 1st gig of Jason Acidre, kaiserthesage.
Here is the list of speakers who shared their knowledge on MORCon 2011, their topics and their profiles (Arranged in Chronological Order):
Sheila Dela Peña - “Kutitap“
Talked about SEO Audit. How important to do SEO Audit in Search Engine Optimization. “You won’t loose anything if you will still use meta keyword tags on your pages” I appreciate the way she highlighted the importance of internal linking, meta tags, permalink structure etc.
Ed Pudol - “The President”
Talked about building authoritative website. Of course who could deny that this man has one of the greatest success story in SEO industry particularly in building membership sites. I really appreciate the way Sir Ed deliver his funny lines during the talk. Early morning ice breaker perhaps.
Benj Arriola – “Sir Benj“
One of the most accommodating person in the Org. Sir Benj talked about local seo. One of his many keynotes are OnPage SEO wherein you need to creatively use your geographic location keywords on your meta’s, titles, headers and contents. My favorite is the discussion about local maps submissions, “Google Postcard in US”. I smiled when he shared his experience with MapQuest.

Jason Acidre – “Kaiser“
You can feel that Jason was really nervous doing his first gig in front of the SEO Philippines Community. F**K, lol. When he talked, I looked around and I can see that everyone is listening to him. Talked about Viral Marketing Strategies and Content Generation. I enjoyed it when he talked about the phases on developing content and gave an emphasis on the importance of doing an intensive research first and creating an outline.

Ester Del Fierro – “GurlAlien“
Talked about Social Media Marketing tactics. Discussed Facebook and Twitter schemes that can be an important part of your marketing campaign. She asked “Is twitter and facebook the same?” HA! I appreciate it when she discussed about the people spamming social media sites just to advertise and promote their products and services which is completely a throw-away method to promote your self in Social Media.
Talked about Video Optimization on YouTube. The talk was really fast but indeed it was one of the best presentation of the day. I appreciate it when he highlighted the importance of completing every details in your YouTube profile and video details like title, tags and descriptions.
Myles is the COO of Internet Marketing Inc and the man behind websitetrafficattraction.com. Some people might find this crazy, but did you know that Myles Vives is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belter. Follow him on twitter@mylesvives and check him out on his website today!
Kim Tyrone Agapito – “Tyrone“
Talked about bullet proofing content, content that can withstand any search engine updates. This one took something out from his magic box that really made the topic interesting. A leak from Google that talks about content standards and really made everyone think about content optimization – Google Quality Raters Guidelines.
Juanito Cell Jacela - “CellConversion“
Talked about PPC. Admit it! When Cell do his talk, its like everyone will have a nosebleed. I smile everytime Cell asks if someone knows a particular term or tool in AdWords and Sir Benj raises his hand. Cell is indeed one of the best PPC expert that exist in Philippines.
Mark Acsay - “MarkSEO“
The last presenter of the day, never fall short. SEO mistakes to avoid – Learn from the darkside. He showcased many of the most freaking, spamming and speedy way SEO tools in the industry. Using scrapebox without abusing its capability and other SEO tools that often can get you labeled as Black Hat SEO. But reminder, using SEO Tools is already blackhat so there’s no such way that you can say to your self that it is good. But it all boils down to the topic of risk management and taking advantage of every tools out there.
Mark Acsay is the Matt Cutts look alike of SEO Philippines (said by many people in the org). Join his circle on Google+
And the day ended with the booze of course. The after event gathering is what I always look forward to. SEO for a beer is indeed a good idea to exchange knowledge within the industry. The story keeps coming in and for people who did not attend after party event. Whew, next time! next time…
