Can you outrank me for shoemoney ? I got 1000$ that says you can’t

Posted by

For the next Month (until June 22nd) every sunday at midnight CST I will check the Google results for the keyword “shoemoney” on Yahoo Google and MSN.

You can call it a seo competition or whatever. This IS NOT and has nothing to do with the upcoming SEM 25,000$ competition.

The first person to outrank me on the following engine(s) will get the following:

Google will get 500$
MSN will get 250$
Yahoo will get 250$

There is no catch. There is no link requirements. You outrank me and you win.

It should be pretty easy for msn and yahoo… but I doubt you will get me on Google.

The only requirement is that you agree to my standard contest rules here

Good Luck

    Well Thor, if I made a site ranking for shoemoney, and I ran adsense on my site and never sent traffic shoe’s way, then I win. :)

    Rule number 1 should be after the contest is over, everyone has to redirect to my adsense page….. I mean ๐Ÿ˜‰

    See this is dirty pool.

    You know full well that it take Google 90 days to update their index to show changes. So if a person were to have started to SEO for the term ‘shoemoney’ two weeks ago before you even thought of announcing the challenge, they would not be able to see the results till after your challenge is over..

    Next your owning the domain and having optimized it for the term already would seem to indicate that out ranking you would be near impossible..

    Next why would you want people to waste their time on trying to outrank you??

    hmmmm dont want the competiton going after your other ideas eh lol divert to something with little ROI…

    Nice tactic

    Nice stuff with these SEO contests. I followed the v7ndotcom one, or what was it about. And some of the other ones too. I don’t really want, though, to have someone get a fist ranking for the name of my company(stilxxi), when I have my website ( Maybe u like to do this for fun or there is a catch with this, but… I prefer to just watch u all go nuts about it.

    Maybe I’ll post something about this on my website, fully knowing I have absolutely no chance whatsoever against u all big guys :(

    Hmmm… I’ve had brand new domains show up first page of Google in as little as 3 weeks. Ive also got a PageRank 5 before in just a little over a month. If it’s taking you 90 days…you’re doing something horribly wrong

    Yes, I read shoemoneys blog — but that doesnt mean i dont agree with ‘Clint Dixon’. If anyone could really knock off a nice aged site like this, with 27,894 backlinks, they’d be rich, rich i tell you!! knocking any site they want from the top positions. I think it would be very hard to do at all, never mind 30 days. (is there even a chance seen as ‘shoemoney’ isnt actually a word, and the domain name is just www.{the keyword}.com??? )

    well they say you can’t please everyone!

    Good luck to everyone who does take part, it’s win-win really for shoemoney and “if” someone can knock him off the top spot in google I’m sure shoe will be asking you to work for him :)

    cool! you drive traffic this way into your site. you pay $1000 in the total of the prizes, but you’ll make much much more with the traffic you drive to your site… building thousands backlinks…nice idea.

    If you put some serious money you’ll get serious competition.
    That’s just for fun and icecream ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Not worth to try hard

    @ first, when I heard about the contest, I was amazed: you really wanna have someone outrank you! That’s interesting & funny indeed (it’s like my company would ever – maybe never – want to be outranked for stilxxi, which is the name of the website and company)! But now, reading more about this, I eventually agreed to write about it on our website, now that the contest is over. Why enter into such a non-sense contest? That’s quite a good q….

    I thought it was going to be some boring old post, but it truly paid for my time. I will post a link to this page on my weblog. I’m sure my visitors will find that quite useful.

    May i make a recommendation? I believe you have got a little something beneficial in this article. But what if you added in a couple links to a web page that backs up just what youre stating? Or possibly you could give us a little something to take a look at, anything that would associate what you are declaring to some thing concrete? Just a suggestion.
