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

  1. This is pretty slick shoe. I’ll give it a whirl even though I don’t stand a chance. But no matter who wins you win πŸ˜‰

  3. ShoeMoney’s Contest For You To Outrank Him » Web it and forget it! Exploring the niche web. says:

    […] Posted on May 22, 2006 at 1:49 am When it comes to publicity, ShoeMoney knows best! He just started a contest to find someone who can outrank his own sites on the search keyword ’shoemoney’. The contest is not supposed to be an SEO contest and it has very simple rules. Anybody up for a challenge? Filed under: Marketing Ideas  […]

  4. 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. πŸ™‚

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

  5. Nice comp! I might give it a blast πŸ™‚ Could do with some money for a house deposit πŸ˜‰

  6. 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

  7. […] Shoemoney , shoemoney , shoe money , moneyshoe , money shoe ? This is about Shoemoney’s other contest . […]

  8. Morons! When you pingback this blog post you add more shoemoney keywords to his comments for this page, hence addign mroe competition for yourself!

  9. Nah, shoe should require a link from all participants in the contest. πŸ˜‰

  10. You don’t own Well I guess I don’t own, but then again I am not running contest to rank for it πŸ™‚

  11. […] Shoemoney dared everybody to outrank him in Google, Yahoo or MSN for the term shoemoney. Official announcement can be found at this Shoemoney blog post. […]

  12. 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 πŸ™


  13. 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

  14. I think it’s cool Shoe…you’re just trying to add some fun competition

    Rock on!!!

  15. 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??? )

  16. […] The first site to rank #1 for Shoemoney wins cash… […]

  17. 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 πŸ™‚

  18. I announced my entry 12 hours ago.

    Current results: in Yahoo im 23rd and in MSN i’m 41st.

    I’m really happy about this opportunity to spend your money, and I’d like to personally thank you in advance for it. You’re a great guy, Shoe Man, and it will be an honor ranking for your name.


  19. You got yourself a deal man……I’d put my site in this that i can outrank you…..yes……in 5 years time…. just jokin’ i like your site really. i hope you find time to visit mine….it’s really nothig that’s why i read yours often as a neo in this field.. thanks for the colors.

  20. […] The same rules are in effect as in This Post but going to make it a little more fun. (Cause I think we all agree the #1 will be next to impossible) […]

  21. […] Shoemoney is an established name in the SEM/SEO arena with a blog in the Technorati Top 100 so when he dared everyone to outrank him in the Big 3 search engines for the term “shoemoney” last Monday, I didn’t bother to blog about it here since I thought it’s a futile attempt to beat him on the #1 spot. The prize money was $1,000 in total ($500 in Google, $250 each in Yahoo and MSN). […]

  22. […] Shoemoney (aka Jeremy Schoemaker) recently started a Shomoney content to see if someone can outrank him in Google for the term : Shoemoney […]

  23. […] Outrank “shoemoney” on Google, Yahoo, and MSN and earn some cash. […]

  24. […] Jeremy Schoemaker aka Shoemoney is a hoot. He has a great blog and a series of forums and now he wants his name to be famous (watch for the trademark application ) because our adoration obviously wasn’t enough. […]

  25. […] You may notice that I am writing and linking too much about Jeremy Schoemaker’s – a.k.a shoemoney – mini-contest. It is because I enjoy playing games. Others play games like mmorpg’s or FPS, I tend to play games that are more or less will give something in return other than wasted time. Shoemoney and other SEO contests as of late have given me the pleasure. […]

  26. 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.

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

    I think I’m somewhere in the 6th page lol

  28. […] Existen muchos sitios que hablan sobre esto, pero hoy me encontré en ShoeMoney un concurso en el cual se puede uno ganar hasta $500 dólares si es que uno logra destacar mÑs que él en Google, Yahoo o MSN. Incluso tiene premios para los que queden en los lugares del 2 al 10. […]

  29. What if I change my user name on a public forum to “Shoemoney” and my profile gets ranked … do I win? πŸ™‚

  30. outrank shoemoney…

    Shoemoney has issued a challenge to try to outrank him, on Google, MSN and Yahoo.
    While I know that I won’t come near to the top, I figured it would be fun to try it out.
    Great idea, Shoemoney.


  31. @ 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….

  34. 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.

  35. 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.
