If you are following me. I assume that you know about SEOmoz MozCation, an opportunity to meet seomozzers and buddies from the Seattle based SEO Authority SEOMOZ and people from your nominated city. Of course, I nominated Manila city as a venue for MozCation and racked up some tweets on twitter with #MozCation.
A day before the announcement of the winners, Jen Sable Lopez left me a note on my email:
With so many great nominations it was quite difficult picking which cities to visit. Sadly, we ended up not choosing Manila for our first MozCation, but we’d love for you to jump in again on the next round, and we’d certainly love for you to come say hi if you’re ever in Seattle.First off, I wanted to thank you for nominating Manila for our first MozCation. We really liked your nomination, and it’s clear you’ve got a great community there.
We really had such an amazing turnout and everyone went above and beyond our expectations. Since people went all out from several cities, we actually just couldn’t bring ourselves to pick just one. We’ll be announcing on the blog tomorrow the four cities we’ve chosen and will have links to all of the nominations.
Again, thank you so much for your nomination, and we look forward to seeing what you can come up with next time. Have a great day!

So that’s the news. Manila didn’t made it. BUT, there’s another round for nominations. I just hope that fellow SEO people can help us (those who wanted SEOmoz here in Philippines) to convince them to visit us. Oh I almost forgot. The winners of the MozCation are Salt Lake City, Brazil, Lima Peru and Spain.
