As Salitype turns four years old in July, I wanted to reflect on our group’s simple journey from where we started to where we are now. We all met in a website called “Friendster”. The site allowed us to post short blogs and connect with people who have similar interests. We all met online, got to know each other and became friends in a short period of time. Everybody agreed when some members of the group suggested to bring our blogging to a whole new level. The purpose is to create a shared blog, start earning an income, and make it our group project to donate the income to a charitable institution.
A fun page was born and it was our baby – we call it
The Salitype Society !
The website officially launched in July 2008, members who have technical expertise put a lot of time and effort creating introduction, designing the page, and the rest of us started putting together blogs regarding: travel, cooking articles and recipes, fashion tips ideas, poems, and inspirational stories.

As we completed the process we faced more challenges than what we initially anticipated. We learned that to get offers for paid blogs we had to increase our page ranking. We researched ways to make our articles and website more visible on major search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing. Our website from time to time gets offers to review products, restaurants and places. These are all earning potentials for our site and a chance to get a higher page ranking. We also have Facebook and Twitter accounts and we used those social media platforms to market our website. Most of our page visitors are from these social media places.
We learned a lot of new things like Web hosting, Local search engine optimization, and Search engine maximization. This is where RevLocal comes in, they find small and medium sized businesses who need help with local search engine marketing with focus on their Google place page. New business owners may not be fully aware that things online are changing fast and may not know strategy on how to handle these issues should hire a professional who have been in business for many years and a company who has a proven track record, relationships, tools and effective process.
Are you a small or medium-size business and want to connect with a broader audience? Give Revlocal a try and see for yourself the benefits of getting a high rank in the search engines would do to your business !
A year ago, Salitype supported one scholar from our savings and today we added one more. We are proud of this accomplishment. Way to go Salitypers! May God bless us all as we move forward.
We thank everyone for your support!
