So the year is coming to a close. The US have decided that Obama should still be the one making the shots and we’ve survived the Mayan Apocalypse. The SEO Hacker team would like to thank you for helping us grow into a community that helps up-coming SEO specialists learn their way through the slippery road of SEO.
I think it’s about time to give due credit to whom credit is due. Let me tell you how SEO Hacker first started and the history of my journey as its first managing director.

If you didn’t know, I tried to enter SEOmoz’s Youtube contest – because I was also doing tests and writing an entry on Youtube SEO. Wasn’t really expecting to win due to the simplicity of my video. I was practically just sitting and talking. To my great surprise, I was chosen as one of the winners (my guess is the SEOmoz team probably didn’t have much to choose from and went ahead to make me one of the winners). Nonetheless, I thoroughly enjoyed making the video with one of our new hustlers in the SEO Hacker team, Khris Torres.
SEO in the Philippines is now a REALLY BOOMING industry. Just two years ago I had no idea about SEO or what it’s about. SEO here in the Philippines wasn’t all that popular then. I don’t know if I’m just more involved in the SEO industry now that I find and meet a lot of other Filipinos who are practicing SEO and servicing clients around the world.
It’s been our first year around and we surely had a blast with you! As you well know, this website went up just this April and we’ve been rolling and rolling and rolling and hopefully we’ll keep on rolling this coming year.
We have been so privileged in building relationships online and launching our first ever basic SEO course which is still on-going until mid February. To the course enrollees, congratulations on being the first students of SEO Hacker!
Woke up earlier today for work and got greeted by a really, really encouraging video from a brother in Christ from halfway around the world! He’s an Organic Search Director from NYC. We had the chance to tweet with each other in Twitter using my @SEO_Hacker Twitter account. His name is Dan Cristo and I was so surprised to have received an email from him telling me he made a video for me and my team. I’m just sooo encouraged and surprised!
Thanks for the video Dan! I really, really appreciate it! You’ve just made my morning – and I haven’t even had breakfast yet!
I’ll be sure to let my team watch it and holler back to you in Twitter!
