January 17, 2012 – The 2010 Presidentiables Blog reaches 1,000,000 hits

January 18, 2012 Leave a comment

first post in this blog was in november 22, 2008. after 3 years and 3 months, 772 posts and 10,007 comments posted, the blog has reached 1 Million hits.  that to us is a lot of zeroes and we are above ourselves that we got this far.

the blog had modest beginnings – just another blog talking about the upcoming presidential elections in 2010.  the blog quickly got hits which we credit to the fact that this is one of the first blogs to use the term “presidentiables” as a blog name. it was a marketing decision. we thought getting a recognizable name and being first at it was going to be critical in getting readership. we thought it was natural for netizens to search for the word “presidentiables” to get information or news on the upcoming presidential elections.

the strategy worked.

1 Million hits was reached sometime in the evening of January 17, 2012

after the 2010 elections, we thought of closing down the blog. but then there were requests to continue it and thus we transformed the blog to talk about topics other than the election that was already concluded but also national issues in politics or governance. and those that concern the people.

we like to thank those who contributed to the 1 Million hits.

first post was in November, 2008

The 2010 Presidentiables Year 1 Anniversary – November 22, 2009

November 10, 2009 1 comment

november is this blog’s anniversary month. when we started, not a lot of internet space was given to the 2010 presidential elections. just the same, we thought it was time to get a blog up for the election.

we were quite early in doing so. we were very early that we were able to register the name “2010 Presidentiables”. the internet world takes kindly to good naming practices. it’s not a very popular discipline in marketing and advertising but it is very lucrative for the practitioners and quite important for the owners of the brand. in fact for the internet it is very critical. there are hundreds of millions of users of the iternet and  quite literally many more  number of names registered to users. getting the right name is key in the itnernet.

as of this writing, this blog has gotten 132,369 hits. we like to thank all the authors and specially the readers for making this blog a continuing success.

some trivia –  a look back and to celebrate this blog’s 1st year anniversary, we like to share with you the top 5 posts ever in this blog.

  1. President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s State Of The Nation Address 2009 (SONA 2009)- the true state of the nation in today’s PDI – 9,135 hits

  5. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s SONA 2009 a failure – half of the truth said, the other half unsaid – no categorical statement she will step down in 2010 – 2,298 hits
