Indexing the Internet’s Ilocano-related content

indexcardAny attempt at cross-indexing constantly changing Internet content on or in Ilocano and related matters on the themes expressly spoused here (Iloco, Iloco culture and literature) and pooling the results in one website, [ILOCANO ONLINE–our home website], is an ambitious undertaking.  But with your help, that’s exactly what we would like to try, for your–and our–convenience.

Oh sure, you could go search the Internet on your own using whatever appropriate search parameters or keywords to nail down your search.  However, what ILOCANO ONLINE offers is to narrow down your search and filter out some of the EXTRANEOUS STUFF (e.g., websites with  Ilocano titles with no content whatsoever that’s related to our chosen themes) that oftentimes strays into your search results.

Searching the Internet for Ilocano-related content is a large project and it will be an ongoing project.  We shall appreciate any suggestions on how we should go about this effort.  Or, you could just as easily leave a message/info/comment here to point to the Internet content or material–yours and/or others–that you wish to be included in ILOCANO ONLINE’s cross-indexing.  To facilitate this, we have a dedicated link, FOR CROSS-INDEXING [which is actually the COMMENT section below this particular blog entry; when you get there, hit the End key to scroll down to the empty COMMENT box], under the heading, AAA: CONTENT’S URL, at the top of the middle sidebar where you can leave the address/URL information of the Internet content you wish to be indexed.  To avoid copyright issues, we cross-index content and/or their owners using their URLs.

We shall appreciate your calling our attention when cross-indexed Internet content ceases to exist either because it is moved, renamed, deleted, or whatever so we could perform the appropriate update.

The effort could be fun as we discover interesting Internet content on or in Ilocano.  Who knows, some of them may turn out to be of interest to you as well.

  1. We’d just like to post a few examples of how you’d provide URL info on something you’d wish to be included in ILOCANO ONLINE’s cross-index of Ilocano-related Internet content. For Florentino B. Lorenzana’s blog, just leave the following info:

    Tignay ken Tagainep –

    For Roy Aragon’s: –

    For GUMIL La Union’s LABAW anthology:

    LABAW/GUMIL La Union –

    We’ll take our cue from there. In fact, there’s a lot more we could extract from their contents.

    Thanks for your cooperation.

  4. FBL: Actually, those were the first two sites where I started extracting some of the initial contents of ILOCANO ONLINE. Of course your blog has plenty to be indexed, too. Kind of tricky to locate some of the stuff, but if I miss some, kindly let me know where they are. Thanks.
