Rank Math Pro
The Purchase of a 1-year subscription to RankMath Pro switching from Free Version Yoast. It gave us a more detailed insight into improving the quality of our website via SEO. We now move towards articles 2500 or more.
After having used Uber Suggest to find a lot of good keywords, we needed more detailed insight. This is what we found in Rank Math.

The Final standing after 7 years in operation was 38,415 visitors for September of 2020. Exceeding the previous record of 28,717 from March 2020 as per Google Analytics. Pinoyathletics, including the recent month’s report, has now been over 28,000 visits 4 times.

Using Uber Suggest, we removed many redundant Tags and found some good new keywords to target.
Updates as of May 2020
Just advising www.pinoyathletics.info has now finalized its transfer to its new faster server and is now accessible again to the Philippines. Please share this post. We had remarkable improvements in speed in terms of Google Page Speed and GTMetrix tests. Especially for mobile phones. In light of the COVID/Corona Virus epidemic. The need for mobile-friendly responsive websites is very much required.
Unfortunately, due to prolonged internet speeds in the Philippines, our home page loads in 1.4-1.8 sec in the US, but in some parts of the Philippines, the same page takes 10 seconds or 16 seconds without optimization.
However, with necessary optimizations via Google Analytics for this month, Pinoyathletics has seemed to have bounced back and is coping well with the COVID. Ad Revenues are at an all-time high earning more in a week than we have since the website started. We also have now got 22.5k followers on our Facebook Page, having exceeded 20,000 in late January. The Facebook Group has now grown to 8000. And we are looking at getting more trustworthy moderators to help handle the growth.
Also, we have an 80,000, strong mailing group base. That is why we advised Gyms and Road Race organizers we will not be giving out free advertising as obviously, we have a large reach that will be worth investing in.

As I am based in Australia,
Writers who are interested in writing articles for us please express intentions via email to
Firstly I would like to say when Airnel Abarra and I founded ‘pinoyathletics.’ Consequently, this later became ‘pinoyathletics.info.’ While we had intended for this blog, that later became a website. Also, to become a website not just for the Philippines Track and Field community, Hence also shared by the athletic community in terms of articles and opinions.
While for the last few months, I had produced the majority of the articles for this site. Hence, however, this was a time-consuming and lengthy process.
Yet, we did, however, gain a lot of contributing authors—most noteworthy writers or pinoyathletics Jane Sandwood, US Coach Adarian Barr, NCAA Athlete Allyson Bodenbach. And more recently, Run4Change Founder Eric Pasion.
While we did get a few offers by guest writers to write articles, our niche is Firmly Philippines Track and Field News and anything about the sport.
Furthermore, one of the goals of pinoyathletics.info is to produce quality articles by a variety of authors. At the same time, it is now our mission over the next few months to meet with and recruit new authors for our website.

Over the past few months, I have been getting requests mainly from people in the PSC regarding the provision of Data. I have created this page/post to save myself time and productivity in repeating the information given.
I already provide a lot of valuable information on this website free of charge. However, any data not provided on this website that is being requested will incur a fee. I am not a charity, and preparing data can take a great deal of my time. My time is not free.
This is the standard procedure. I charge a consultancy fee of $25 per hour (after tax) as I have clients from different countries, whatever this converts into. [email protected] can contact me. I can do sports data and analysis for various sports, including graphs, trends, spreadsheets, ranking lists, records, improvement trends, and access to many results.
- You email me the outline of a project and elements to complete
- We can arrange a Skype or Video Call if need be.
- We both agree on the number of hours required for the project. Additional Skype/Video calls must be factored into the time taken to complete the project.
- I am paid in full for the project in advance into my pay pal account [email protected]
- If the project takes longer to complete than what is agreed on, I will not charge extra fees. However, if elements are added which are not in the original outline, it will incur extra fees unless I deem additional elements reasonable requests, which will not take significant increases in time on the project.
I am a certified ATFS Statistician for 7 years.
Recently Voted in as Vice President of the ATFS (Association of Track and Field Statisticians) in 2020.
I worked for the PSC as a Research Assistant and Consultant for nearly 2 years. Dealing with team collections and analysis.

And I have been the editor of Pinoyathletics.info since 2012.

Five Years of Pinoyathletics.info
Pinoyathletics.info celebrates its 5th Birthday, which started in 2012. Before this, we were Pinoyathletics.com at WordPress starting in 2011 before moving to wordpress.org. And before that, in 2010, I first signed up for sports writing through the encouragement of Moriel ‘Yell’ Carreon, The Pinoymiler YUN OH!!!.
Today Pinoyathletics provides a very reliable source of information, results, articles, and commentaries not just on Athletics but has branched out into different sports. Through my learning to appreciate and take an interest in other sports during my two-year tenure in the
Philippine Sports Commission as Research Assistant to Commissioner Jolly Gomez.
We realized that by just focusing on athletics, we were limiting our readership. It was thus that co-founder Airnel Abarra and I took on two young writers. Joan Masangkay from Powerlifting and Kimberly Goloran, a varsity athlete, helps continue to mold the legacy of Pinoyathletics. We’re very interested in taking on more writers if possible.
Through our joint efforts, Airnel and I covered all the Palarong Pambansa back to Lingayen in 2011. Providing the latest results, excellent photos, and interviews with grass-root athletes and coaches. We also covered the National Open, National Games, Batang Pinoy, UAAP, NCAA, ASEAN School Games 2014, and even SEA Games 2015.
Pinoyathletics continues to grow as a media powerhouse in the Philippines. And today even rivals the major newspapers when it comes to reporting on sports news.
We want to say that we are a truthful media outlet. And by that, we have teeth, and we do bite when we need to bite. Being truthful is not always going to be neutral but objective as we will justify our write-ups with factual evidence when need be.
We want to thank our readers for years of continued support. And we promise to make several innovations and new exciting articles for our readers over the coming year/s. We welcome constructive feedback over [email protected]

Editor in Chief of Pinoyathletics.info
Celebrating 3 Years of Pinoyathletics.info. Vote for Us
Pinoyathletics.info has and continues to be a popular media brand for The Philippine Athletics Community.
I originally got into blogging way back in 2010 when Moriel Carreon approached, who then asked me to write for him at Pinoymiler at the 2010 National Open; back then, I was still a very active sprinter.
I wrote for Pinoymiler.wordpress.com for two years. By 2012 I decided to found my blog, Pinoyathletics.wordpress.com, and later pinoyathletics.com on the wordpress.com platform.
Eventually, in 2013 I decided to shift over to the WordPress.org platform due to its greater features, and from then, ‘Pinoyathletics.info’ was born.
I want to say that we offer a unique and priceless insight into data and reporting, which over the years has helped build Pinoyathletics.info into a household name not just within the Philippine Athletics Community but also in the Bloggers Community, International Athletics.
Community, and Philippine Sports Community and among our peers in the mainstream media. Pinoyathletics was recently listed in the Top 30 Sports Blogs in the Philippines.
Many young athletes have now grown up reading Pinoyathletics.info, and I like to think fondly of the athletes and people we have helped over the years and played some minor role in helping shape their careers and the betterment of the sport of Athletics. It’s also inspirational to see young athletes becoming more motivated by reading about our sports superstars. And then a spark is ignited for them also to follow a similar path. And continue the great legacy, which is Philippine Athletics.
