The Google Zeitgeist on "Filipina"

(From Clair)Turns out, a Google search for the word "Filipina" throws back a slew of sites on dating and mail order brides. It's even worse for Google Image Search.

We don't have to take this sitting down. The Sassy Lawyer makes the following suggestion:

perhaps we can all write about our own definition of what a filipina is and then let’s provide the urls to the permalink pages then let’s point to each other’s permalinks. In a few weeks, google will show different results. :)

For best results, use “Filipina” or “Filipino women” as links to each other’s permalinks.


The Filipino Librarian has a starter set of good "Filipina" links.

If you have a nice definition/description, please drop it in the comments section of this post. I'll post it in the iBlog blog, as well as my 3 or 4 personal blogs.

Can Pinoy bloggers reverse years of google zeitgeist pollution? This is certainly a blog-worthy project :)

well, you can link the word "Filipina" to any of the non-demeaning definitions available, the way I linked to Merriam-Webster's definition at the bottom of the post. that would have to do until someone puts up something more authoritative.
