Yet Another SEO Contest Update

Well – the pot is just that much bigger now for the non-V7N version of the contest thanks to Mike Grehan. Mike’s promised to put $1000 in so I’ll assume for now he means he’ll pay out for the #1 slot only unless I hear otherwise from him. That makes the current prize from The Collective to be:
#1 – $3000
#2 – $1000
#3-#5 – $200 each

remember – no link to V7N and at least one link to mattcutts.com – note the lack off www ;)

Now I don’t really have anything at all against John. I’ve never even met the guy. I’m really just havin some fun but John went and closed the orginal contest thread at V7N and opened a new ‘members only’ thread. That’s the equivalent of taking your ball and going home. So now I’m kind of annoyed at him. C’mon John – we’re all discussing it publicly. It would be nice if you joined us. I’ll even buy the beer :)

Now – for all you guys asking about joining both contests – go right ahead and please win John’s. I’ll wait while you figure that out…

    Oilman, I’ll be damned if I’m not going to milk this for all its worth. Members only thread = more members logging in.

    Happy new year, Todd.

    I’d have done the same for sure John :) But you know I have to give you a hard time for it – hehe.

    Todd,

    Don’t waste your money on the hops. Save it for someone who’s really in the business, I mean isn’t that the point of networking.
    Doing it with someone who at least has a clue or the desire to learn?
    JS is neither.

    Ok, wiping the crap off my feet now…

    Call me Todd, sounds like an interesting topic for The SEO Rockstars.

    I know Greg and I will be talking about this on our radio show. I mean for real…how can we not take such a wonderful opportunity to discuss JS’s crapola.

    OoOo – I can’t wait, will you all stop posting more about this, I haven’t even read the last updates on the other blogs yet! grrrrrr

  5. Monty Loree says:

    Ah yes… controversy.. the things that blogs and traffic are made of!

  6. g00gl3r says:

    OK, take a look at my blog, it appears we have $4000 USD for the winner alone!

    And eeerm, somebody else has donated something too *whistles*

  7. g00gl3r says:

    Now 5 grand and an ipod!

    Excellent!

  8. Geez..I’m confused !!!
    Who’s having what? Are you starting a new SEO contest or are you just contributing?
    ..but got to say, John definitely deserves a credit for setting the ball to roll.
    For now I’m assuming that you are just contributing $$$ to WebGuerilla’s contest. If I’m mistaken, please correct me and I’d love to blog it.

  9. Todd,

    What’s up? Been a while since we spoke. Hey we all know it will never end and this is the answer to ‘What will they think of next?’ at least for the next few months.

  10. I will be so pissed off if he doesn’t pay..I think his PR went up by 2 after his little announcement also!
