The Google Zeitgeist on “Filipina” 11

Posted on May 22, 2005 by Administrator

(From Clair)Turns out, a Google search for the word “Filipina” throws back a slew of sites on dating and mail order brides. It’s even worse for Google Image Search.

We don’t have to take this sitting down. The Sassy Lawyer makes the following suggestion:

perhaps we can all write about our own definition of what a filipina is and then let’s provide the urls to the permalink pages then let’s point to each other’s permalinks. In a few weeks, google will show different results. :)

For best results, use “Filipina” or “Filipino women” as links to each other’s permalinks.

(Or maybe we can all put up a button that points to one site/webring.)

The Filipino Librarian has a starter set of good “Filipina” links.

If you have a nice definition/description, please drop it in the comments section of this post. I’ll post it in the iBlog blog, as well as my 3 or 4 personal blogs.

Can Pinoy bloggers reverse years of google zeitgeist pollution? This is certainly a blog-worthy project :)

iBlog RSS Feeds, and Not Being Lame 0

The Scobleizer says having no rss feed is a genetic marker for a lame site. At the very least, an orange RSS button *promises* future updates. So here are our promises for future updates:

Speakers’ Presentations Part 6: Connie Veneracion aka The Sassy Lawyer 4

Posted on May 11, 2005 by Administrator

Bloggers are an unusual bunch. They share their inner most secrets and thoughts but keep a safe distance from their real world audience. On-line personas so meticulously crafted might crumble under the weight of real-world contact. And so, when The Sassy Lawyer was introduced at iBlog, it was Connie Veneracion who took to the stage and faced her loyal readers.This was a virtual reunion but also a real world first meeting. The warm reception marked by cheers and loud applause confirmed that The Sassy Lawyer had touched the lives of most of the bloggers in attendance.

I must say she didn’t disappoint.
