Which Gets Indexed Faster? Self-Built Site VS Wordpress Site

I will do a quick post about an observation I have with regards to creating sites and getting indexed in search engines. I have been developing websites from scratch using PHP and Mysql. I have also done rapid application developments for websites using the very famous Wordpress platform.



I did an experiment last month. I created a website from scratch using PHP and Mysql and I created another site (with a different topic) using Wordpress. After creating those sites, I have them on SEO. I did the same thing for both websites. You know the usual SEO stuff like article marketing, blogging, Forum posting, bookmarking, etc. By the way, the site created from scratch had meta tags in it.

Then I waited and observed the two sites. After about one week, the Wordpress site was indexed in Google. Then two weeks after, the site that I created from scratch got indexed.

This is not the first time that I have observed this. But, this is the first time that I did an experiment. I don't know about you but I can say that Wordpress performs better in Search Engine indexing.

Is this just me or Wordpress is really better. I am assuming that since Wordpress is the most common CMS platform for creating content sites rapidly, Google must have loved it very much and neglected those sites created from scratch.

What do you think? Your comments are welcome.

Honda Beat Scooter Review

After using my Honda Beat scooter for a year, I decided to make this review for the benefit of those who are  planning to buy this scooter. I'm not gonna lie, the points you will read below contain more positive statements about this motorcycle simply because I loved it and still loving it. I will try my best to sound unbiased.

[Fixed] Call to undefined function GuzzleHttp\Handler\curl_reset() Error

I operate a couple of job portals that accept online applications. The applications are sent directly to the employer's email. One day, all of the sites cannot send any applications. I was receiving the following error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function GuzzleHttp\Handler\curl_reset() in /home3/boyiboyi/public_html/wp-content/plugins/gmail-smtp/google-api-php-client/vendor/guzzlehttp/guzzle/src/Handler/CurlFactory.php on line 78

I am using a 3rd party SMTP management plugin called Gmail SMTP Plugin so I contacted them. They checked the error and said everything was fine on their side. They suggested updating my PHP version.

Solution:

So, I went to the CPanel dashboard in my Hostgator hosting and updated the PHP version from 5.4 to 5.6.

It fixed the error for all of my sites.

How to update the PHP version in Hostgator:

1. Login to your customer portal.
2. Go to Hosting and click on Hosting dashboard
3. Click on manage databases and click Home on the newly opened tab. The class…

Midway Minkay Beach Resort

Wife and I went to Midway Minkay beach resort as part of my birthday celebration. We agreed to go out more often while we don't have kids yet. 
The resort is located in the Municipality of Initao, around a 45-minute bus ride from Iligan city where we live. We took a Rural bus transit with a fare of P85 each person.
The resort staff were friendly and polite. Area was clean and we enjoyed the white sands. We rented a room for two for P1,799 a night with complimentary breakfast. The food was great and there were a lot of amenities that you can enjoy such as renting banana boat, zip line and jet skis. 
Overall, we had an awesome time. I highly recommend the place.
Here is a video I created about the resort. Contact numbers and rates are found in the video.

Claim Your Google Adsense Earnings Through Unionbank of the Philippines Wire Transfer

I have been receiving Google Adsense earnings through Western Union every month for the past couple of years. This month, days before my scheduled payout, I got a notification from Google to change my payment method from Western Union to a wire transfer. Over the years, I only use my wife's Unionbank account in all my online transaction so I am not sure if I can use it for Google Adsense. I can only try to add it so I did.

I use the form below to add the new payment method. I only filled up the name on the bank account, bank name, SWIFT BIC, and account number.


Unionbank SWIFT BIC UBPHPHMMXXX.
On the date of payout, I received an email from Google that they sent the money already. I was anxious because I am not sure if that would go through the bank. The bank did not notify my wife or anything. 
Usually, with Western Union, I can get the money once they sent the email with the MTCN code. But with the wire transfer, the only thing I can do is wait. One full day after I received the…

Toyota Wigo G Manual 2020

I helped my mother get her first brand new car. It is Toyota Wigo G Manual 2020. I processed it online through Toyota Mabolo agent Curt Lara. You can contact him here. Curt was helpful and communicative throughout the process. The process took long because the agent decided to upgrade the car from 2019 to 2020. Nevertheless, we are happy we got the car. It was shipped from Cebu to Iligan through Cokaliong.
So far my mother is very happy with the car and enjoying every minute of it. Here is a little video of the car:
