Thread: Net Builders SEO Contest

Hybrid View

  1. Net Builders SEO Contest

    It's 2009 and we haven't seen a really great SEO contest in the last few years. Meanwhile, Google has not slowed down the pace of algorithm changes.

    Google uses over 200 factors to determine the order of their search engine results and makes over 300 changes to their algorithm every year.

    It's pretty obvious that no one, inside or outside of Google, really truly understands the ranking algorithm.

    So, let's do some testing!

    Net Builders SEO Contest Rules

    Goal: To win, you must place first, second, or third in Google's organic SERPs for the targeted keywords. Indented listing do not count -- each domain can win only one prize.

    Start Date: 15 March, 2009

    Finish Date: 15 August, 2009 - High Noon GMT

    Prizes:
    First Place: $1,000
    Second Place: $500
    Third Place: $250
    Contest Entry

    To enter the contest, you must post the domain you are entering into the contest in a message here at NetBuilders.

    Determination of Winners


    I will determine the official winners by using a manual search to google.com. As Google returns different results from different data centers and to different searchers, the results you see may not be the results that I see.

    Targeted Keywords: The targeted keywords for our contest are "sulumits retsambew" (without the quotes)

    Sounds excellent! Are moderators allowed to participate?

    Yes, because their moderator status doesn't get them any pull with Google.

    Employees of Google are not allowed to participate. Sorry Matt!

    Either way works. This is a good chance to measure the power of exact match keyword domains vs. authoritative domains.

    I am very mobile. If I don't get my paperwork done, the Singaporean government may politely request that I become even more mobile.

    The Philippines sounds nice, and New Zealand could be fun.

    I'm retired and, except for a strong dislike for cold weather, I have no geographical limitations.

    Not as long as you still own your own soul.
