Unfortunatly all “Rank For Shoemoney” contests will end today around 5pm cst. I really wanted to see what would happen but theplanet.com (my hosting company) has said they have recived over 500 complaints for spam and unless I end this contest they will disconect my server.

I really did not forsee the spam problem… What a newb I am.

I totally underestimated what people would do for a few dollars.

Anyway screenshots of results will be posted later today.

  1. Found this one (and more) in our comments moderation queue:

    -Name: shoemoney | IP:


    -nice shoemoney site at shoemoney -http://www.imyourhuckleberry.info/ 42

    I think it belongs to one of your mini-seo contestant ;DDDD

    p.s. did not thought that your contest would touch our site.

  2. Wow sorry to hear that. I was looking forward to the results.

    Everyone knows you to pay up. I mean you were the bigest cash sponsor of most of the seo competitions to date so I am sure its not about the money.

  3. I suppose people will do anything for money, sounds like some people have gone over the top though and you do right by stopping this.

    Maybe next contest (small one) you can pick a different search term 🙂

  4. It’s a shame… i just started playing three days ago! (without spam!).

    But well the problem is.. that most of ppl use BH for fast results.. you should gave more time ,,,,

  5. Adam that is a funny article! Are you serious at all though? ShoeMoney has posted several images including
    this one
    and Markus has shut his mouth fast.

  6. I must be missing something… If you wanted to get a competitor’s server at the planet disconnected, all you have to do is spam some blogs with links to the competitors site?

  7. ShoeMoneys unrühmliches Ende…

    Gestern segelten hier einige spammige Trackbacks herein, die im Rahmen eines SEO-Wettbewerbs für den Begriff Shoemoney generiert worden waren. Zwar ist das Spammen beim Shoemoney Contest gar nicht erlaubt gewesen, aber daran hat sich eine besonders d…

  8. […] Oh well, another case of a good intention made worse. Now, I’m on to our very own isulong seoph not so mini seo contest. […]

    […] Jeremy selber räumte dann auch unter http://www.shoemoney.com ein: I really did not forsee the spam problem… What a newb I am. I totally underestimated what people would do for a few dollars. […]

  10. FYI Your site has been tagged by Spam Karma 2 and Akismet Spam filters for WordPress.

  11. I guess contest like this is a great challenge for SEO enthusiasts. SEO Philippines founder Marc Macalua also launched a contest: The Isulong SEOph Keyword Ranking Contest.

    Well I hope it would be as successful as the Shoemoney contest which I myself is an avid fan too.

  12. […] UPDATE: Unfortunately it appears the contest ended prematurely due to irresponsible people using unethical means at trying to win(S-P-A-M-M-E-R-S). Jeremy Shoemaker, the owner of http://www.shoemoney.com, was told by his hosting company that if the contest didn’t end they would shut his site down. To bad Jeremy and now there is NO Shoemoney for the Karate Brothers. […]

  13. Wow. That pic of the bald guy holding the check next to the hummer is pretty amazing! Especially since the giant check casts no shadow on the ground or reflection in the hummer. AMAZING!
