Mabuhay! Well, that's usually how we greet non-Filipinos. I'm basically saying hello! My previous experience with SEO is purely white hat. I remember being a new article writer and I was asked to write articles about SEO. The information that I found about black hat taught me not to touch it with a ten foot pole. So I stuck with white hat techniques. I'd have to admit that I judged blackhatters. I thought people using black hat techniques were unfair. Until I started browsing around this site. I found out that it's not that bad. After all, we'll all aiming to be in the first page of Google. As long as nothing illegal or immoral is done, then I'm good. So I found out that black hat is about taking advantage of what's available. There's nothing wrong with that. So I put up a site to try some of the techniques here. I purchased SB and blasted buffer sites. I'm now on page 2 for a fairly-competitive keyword. I know I can do better but it's a good start considering the site is just about 3 weeks old. Oh, and imagine my surprise when I saw a couple of days ago that the site is PR2. Anyway, that was a pretty long introduction. I'm looking forward to my stay here and hopefully, I can contribute whatever knowledge I may have!
