Well the new year promises to be rung in with style and controversy. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – SEO is fun again.
John Scott over at V7N forums has announced the next SEO contest and of course this has done nothing but stir up some shit – as it should. To quote John:
Now I may be a nice, generous person, but I’m not giving away money for free. In order to qualify, the page must have a link back to the v7n home page. Participants who don’t maintain a link to the v7n home page will be disqualified.
Of course I snipped a bit off the end to further the controversy.
So what’s next? We only need to look as far as WebGuerrilla and his contest and you can see where this is going in a hurry…
Can you see what’s about to happen here?….wait for it….
I can’t help but throw my hat in the ring by matching WebGuerrilla’s dollar amounts and terms. Those terms are:
A) Not linking to V7N
B) Posting a link to Matt’s blog without using the www. (the non-www version of Matt’s blog is only a PR4, so it needs a little help)
As a small aside I must tip my hat to John on this one – he just got himself more links to his forums via this silly contest than he would have from the contest itself thanks to Greg picking up the story.
Now let’s sit back and wait for John to pick his magic nonsense term and then see who’s the last man standing.
