    Just a general question. Obviously what works for one niche may not necessary work for another.

    I'm just curious.

    Something similar, yes, something like:

    "Tell us your story!"

    And the best story wins.

    People love real fake testimonials...

    They also love photoshop. The most rediculous before and after display about losing weight wins.
    Fake or not. Make it something that is bound to get some funny submissions.
    The world is full of the same old same old. Do something that is so silly that people can't stop showing it around
    For blood type dating go here. If your blood type is rhesus negative, go there. If you are bored and feel like liking a Facebook page, hit this one.

    Personally, I believe, that contest are great way to build links from blogs to a blog. Can someone suggest a way to encourage the bloggers, who will participate to link back to your website, without setting a rule about link backs? Also what is the proper way to announce a contest if you are just a small start up blog and nobody knows you yet? Aren't you going to provoke a negative reactions by emailing the bloggers in a certain niche, promoting your contest if they don't know you and haven't heard of you yet?

    NetBuilders Exclusive - I Knew It! Contest - I've never tried running a contest for a content website, but maybe, just maybe... it could work.
