Why am I posting something about Pinoy Big Brother when I know absolutely nothing about the show? I’ve never watched the show and I’ve never visited their website before today. If you ask me who the characters are, you’ll get a blank stare. I don’t even know why I’m not drawn to the show. I’d rather watch the Soriano guy from Ang Dating Daan and the ministers from Ang Tamang Daan go at it on TV. That’s how much entertainment value I think I’ll get from watching PBB.
But I do know that it’s one hot search commodity. The [pinoy big brother] keyword has inspired quite a few bloggers to switch niches, albeit temporarily. What would force a solid SEO blog like Macalua.com to suddenly join the Pinoy Big Brother parade online? Traffic, baby. I’m selling my soul to the traffic gods, ergo this post about Pinoybigbrother (I’ll explain later).
The Pinoy Big Brother Parade
Let’s take a look at the Pinoy Bigbrother (I’ll explain this again later) parade of sites that feature information about the reality show:
- At number 1, we have the official Pinoy Big Brother
websitesplash page, hosted at abs-cbn.com. I was expecting to get something better than this.
- At number 3, we have Abe’s monstrous PR4 Sey on Pinoy Big Brother post, with over 20,000 page views and over 250 fan comments.
- At numbers 6 to 8, we have equally monstrous blog posts from garinungkadol.com (138 comments), Manuel Viloria and Rickey (448 comments).
- Sitting at #13 is a cafepress.com affiliate site taking advantage of the, you guessed it, Pinoy Big Brother mania.
- At #18 is Markku’s PBB subdomain. Excellent AdSense blending/placement on that page.
Why do you think people are writing about Pinoy Big Brother? Some are real fans, some on the other hand (like me) are writing for the traffic. And this is where it gets interesting.
