Another fruitful year for Overseas Pinoy Cooking has passed, the site is now three years and six months.

During this time of the year it has been the tradition to make the Year End Round Up.

Last year was a good year for Overseas Pinoy Cooking, several Milestone have been achieved.

The site has broken the 1 Million Visitors threshold last 25 August, 2010. As of this writting the total visitors has reached 1,292,829 hits and steadily growing at a rate more than my expectations. The average daily visitors have now reached 2,500 hits per day and has gone as high as 5,000 plus hits per day a couple of days before Christmas and New Year.

The 4 Million Page Views threshold was achieved the succeeding month (September, 2010) and to this date is now few thousand short to cross the 5 Million Page Views mark, 4,988,165 page views as of this writting. The 10,000 daily page views to date which have reached as high as 18,000 plus page views per day a couple of days before Christmas and New Year is good enough to generate some decent revenue to keep the site going, thank you.

To date there are now about 530 recipe posts. Almost all Pinoy food has been featured, including significant number of original recipes and alternate versions of some of the more popular dishes.

You might have noticed that Overseas Pinoy Cooking now has its own domain name, the site has transformed from,

http://overseaspinoycooking.blogspot.com

to

http://www.overseaspinoycooking.net/

This transition will hopefully improve the site’s page ranking not only to Google and Yahoo but to other providers out there and serve you better.

I ask now my Food Blogger Friends who have not updated OPC’s link on your blog or site to please update now, to help me rebuild my lost links.

On the other hand the site's format has been kept at it is, there will be no major facelift in terms of site design. This is to build and further strengthens Overseas Pinoy Cooking Brand.

This year Overseas Pinoy Cooking has joined the Facebook bandwagon it seems late as others have already acquired significant numbers of followers, while Overseas Pinoy Cooking is still starting to build followers. If you have not yet visited or joined Overseas Pinoy Cooking on Facebook please do so now and do not forget to click the Like Button to become a member and receive automatic updates of new recipes via Facebook. And to those who have already joined please ask your Facebook friends to visit Overseas Pinoy Cooking on Facebook.

For the year ahead I am hopeful that Overseas Pinoy Cooking will now start to grow exponentially, this was already evident on the site’s growth during the last quarter of 2010. All the essential parameters are already in placed and all that is needed is your continued support.

For the coming year I will try to post more innovative dishes and of course try to post as much as possible dishes from the readers request. More than ever expect the same if not better quality of post for the year ahead.

Now it’s time to thank once again all my regular readers, my fellow foodie friends, to all visitors who happened to stumble upon this blog and to all OPC’s followers on Facebook, but most especialy to those who have left their reactions and comments.



Happy New Year to all!

This is the site where I learned to cook. It is encouraging in its simplicity and completeness. Thank you for all the local dish recipes that are so hard to find. Truly, a fine service especially to those outside the country who long for a taste of home. Congratulations on your success!
