I wrote this post to prepare for a mini talk invitation of my high school alma mater, Nazarene Catholic School – NCS (Formerly known as QPS, Quiapo Parochial School). I just want to avoid feeding my listeners with overwhelming information about SEO and blogging. I wont run down on how Google was made neither how search spiders crawl websites or when did search engine optimization started. That would be a waste of time I suppose. Google is an easy to click engine for those type of question and answers.
