ShoeMoney SEM/SEO contest worth over $25,000.00

by Jeremy Schoemaker on February 24, 2006 · 49 comments

I have always wanted to host a SEO/SEM contest but I wanted to do something original… different… Now Don’t get me wrong, I love what and v7n have put together AND I have donated to each, but I wanted to try a new approach.

Azoogleads has generously signed on to be the official sponsor. The entire contest will have a estimated 25,000.00+ in prizes and I think many people will find it entertaining.. stay tuned…

Nice prices :) I would do it if I wasn´t racing in the v7ndotcom contest.

6 Marcus Westberg

Nice prices! I would enter if i didn´t race with my v7ndotcom page.

This one will be fun to watch. I’ve been thinking of ways to spice up SEO contests as well.

One of the most interesting possibilities would be to target a word with lots of existing sites that have fairly strong link popularity. But, that’s probably unethical. Unless the phrase/sites you target is unethical, like “pro anorexia”.

Wow , another Super Big Contest announced here.
Shoemoney Rocks :)

Shoemoney, pick a term that is well known, but not optimized for…something like “Shoemoney”!

Shoemoney, I am new to all these SEO contest, but they seem like great fun (I never seem to get anyhere near the first 2 pages), the more the better :)
Will it start after the v7ndotcom finishes?

13 Bjorn Solstad aka basicus

Hi Shoemoney. I took the liberty to make an article in my norwegian marketing magazine regarding the competition. I also published a slightly edited picture of you there. I hope that is okay with you. Send me another picture by mail if you did not like the one I published.

i think this will boost SEO/SEM to its peak, the other three competitions have already made SEO Practitioners get more focused on good SEO practices. with more coming, the world of SEO will become a world of great opportunities, fun and excitement. =)
