My Search of Mom and Pop Hostels in Palawan

It is like the whole world forgot me, the backpacker and skipped right to three star hotels. I have been trying to find this place called the "Backpackers Inn"

I finally go to it however I have been avoiding going directly to it, hoping it would come up higher on my normal searches. Nothing about a normal search technique could help me find a cheap hotel on google.com. I had to go to the special techniques.

I typed in this... :

Palawan + backpacker + "Puerto Princesa" + Hotel

Found these about with talk about the "Backpacker."

My guidebook on the Philippines is five years old and I have found no backpackers in the Friendly's Guesthouse except for Elliot with a Guidebook, I am not sure what they are up to.

However I could maybe have found it good if I went for a HOTEL I already knew exist. I already know this place exist so the search is not fair. Easy to find a hotel you know about, difficult to find the best one you do not know exist.

I use this link all the time to learn how to search better in google.com.

The internet is getting to crowded and the webmaster have taken the top searches right out of the mix. The Mom and Pop places do not have a chance, giving a false image that they do not exist. They still exist in guidebooks, however the internet is hiding them.

I did some direct searches, this place seems to be hard to find, another great reason to buy a guidebook. The internet is still missing the boat on Travel Information.
