Any Day Now…

It has been less than 3 weeks and is now back on page 1 for “Lynda Tran” search keyword – #4 spot to be exact. Mobile result is even better, which is #3 due to Google’s recently updated algorithm. Any day now we will be back at #1!


Cancun Beach Bachelorette

Last weekend, we celebrated my cousin’s bachelorette party in Cancun. We stayed in a nice villa at Omni Cancun All-Inclusive Hotel. There were many more fun photos I wish I could post, but you know what they say… What Happens in Cancun, Stays in Cancun! 😛

An obligatory jumping photo. This is a screenshot from a video capture since we couldn’t get the timing right for still shots.

The water in Cancun is so blue. I can only imagine how much more blue it would be at other destinations.

Kissing the Miss Goodbye!

A few days before we flew in, I went downtown and got some pretty fabric for our photo shoot.


My cousins make such great models!

Google Search SEO Update for I moved up 9 spots since last week. Almost back on Page 1. Slowly, but surely!


Portrait Sessions at Mile Square Park

This was the first time I really ever used a DSLR camera. I stopped by Samy’s Camera and picked up a Sigma 24-70mm lens right before I got to the park. My friends Tommy and Pat were also there testing out their own gear and helping with lighting issues. We didn’t get it quite right, but it wasn’t bad for our first try.

My lens was fixed on Auto Focus the entire time and I wasn’t familiar with all the settings yet, but somehow I still managed to get a few decent shots. Here are some of my favorites:

Julie is all about floral crowns.

Found this interesting tunnel in the middle of the park. It made for a pretty cool backlight effect.

We invited our friends to come out for some family portrait shots…

In case you’re wondering, YES – the two girls are twins. Not only are they gorgeous, but also very smart and business savvy. Check out their online clothing store

Thu “Thunder” Nguyen and his lovely wife Christine

Isn’t this one great looking family?


Google Me

I don’t usually Google myself, but I’ve been doing a lot of SEO work lately and was curious how I now rank compared to other Lynda Trans of the world… especially after this new ranking system Google has implemented.

When I search for “Lynda Tran”, the second result is my Twitter account @lyndatran, and below are a few of my Google Plus galleries. On Page 2, there are a few Poker related articles and at the VERY bottom #20 is my website 🙁 In the realm of websites and SEO, this is VERY embarrassing. If I own, I should be #1 on Page 1. No one cares about #2!

And that is why I have relaunched my website,, for the millionth time. I must dedicate to blogging a lot more often in order to keep the content fresh and my Google ranking up.

Let’s see how long it takes for me to get back to #1… stay tuned!


The Wedding of Lynda and Turbo


Finally got around to editing our full-length wedding video. It can be viewed here:

After completion, I realized not many people watch DVDs anymore, so I provided an online hosting solution for the video. This also allows family and friends to watch without having a physical DVD.
