So, do we have to dance like Hammer in order to be drawn? What is the best way to increase our chances onsite, without having to spend a mint buying BOTW stuff?
How much google consider botw in compare of yahoo! directory beside the difference in PR?
heh Americans only 🙁
I have heard matt cutts say on several occasions dmoz, best of the web, and yahoo are the only directorys worth submitting to
Good eye Yazz. As of today, the contest is open to US residents only. We have legal looking into opening it up to site owners world wide. We’ll keep you posted when we modify the rules.
I was in full mood to try, but US people only … Lets hope they open it up for rest of the world… Internet does not have any boundaries.. does it ?
The giveaway from ProBlogger is still better 😉
umm how do you figure? id rather have 10k in cash then 10000 prizes of consulting and rinkydink shit that is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay overvalued anyday…
Dang, too bad I don’t go to conferences. Good stuff by BOTW for steppin’ up!
You’re not gonna win. Your name will be not in the drawing bucket anyway
Ahh, Americans Only
Do you have to attend the conference to be able to win?
aahh ok so this is what you’re referring to on previous post
but you need to pay for a botw listing to qualify for the contest right?
I live all the way over in South Africa. I would have LOVED to go to VEGAS to win me some money… But hey… I’ll get there one day.
I’m in Canada, so this is a no-go. Damn. 🙁
It really pays off being an american online or a canadian/mexican with a US P.O. Box.
there is a lot better reasons to be an american than BOTW, but very true. =D
Oh man…. I really hope to win this money. It would help me so much.
I visited the site but haven’t read the terms. Is it available to other countries besides US or Canada? Anyway I’ll try to look more into it. Thanks for the info Jeremy.
Was this before or after he said no to submit to payed directories?
US only – why? It’s cash!
Again US only!
This sucks – US only. Same thing happened when I wanted to enter to win a chance to stay in Cinderella’s Castle at Disney. Looks like I’m going to have to break in and squat instead.
There must be some legal reason I suppose – for not allowing foreign entries.
Lets try Win10k and win money.
It was before that … but BOTW is not considered in the same category of directories, the fee you pay them is just for the review of your site and not that any one who pays gets listed, this is the main reason why the others got banned.
Looks like we europeans are not welcome… they are loosing much because of that.
BOTW had been copied about a million times.
I wish I win this money. It would do so much good to me and my family.
All the best to everyone too.
cool. looks like a good way at a chance fro 10K
yes, please do. I’d also really like to enter. And if you ever decide to start a category for German-language blogs, I’ll definitely sponsor it.
WEB DIRECTORIES SUCK ! ! ! ! ! !
Too bad BOTW blog directory only accepts English language content.
[…] BOTW.org are giving away $10,000, to enter just enter the promo code when submitting, winner will be picked by Shoemoney. […]
Yeah, and $80 is a lot to spend on something that does absolutely nothing for your site, regardless of the small chance of winning 10K
Yeah – if there’s ever a situation on the web where people are buying links for PR and SERP manipulation, it’s directories. I mean, really, who uses directories to find anything? Search has evolved to the point that it doesn’t make sense to organize stuff into directory format because it’s cumbersome and inflexible – you can just type your categories into any search engine and find more reliable sites. Why they aren’t discredited completely is a mystery to me.
my exact sentiments
maybe the major ads players are US based … still yeah a shame its for US only
it doesn’t if it’s making you money
If directories would clearly state that payments are for reviewing the websites, then they’re out of trouble?
[…] – My personal fave this week is BOTW $10,000 Giveaway! posted by Shoemoney Although pegged by many bloggers as a contest, there is actually no skill […]
In general, I agree. There are too many of them and most of them are garbage.
I can’t believe continental Europe can’t participate
Shoemoney can you tell us how many unique visitors you got from them? I may be interested to add a sponsor as well..
depends on the traffic that they can get to your site we can say that is a lot or not.
Greg can you make some like case studies on how many visitors sponsors (avarage) can get?
Damm I don’t know if I am the only one interested more in the traffic than the prizes
$10,000!?? haha ahem.. You couldn’t cough up $1000…. 10k? Right…
You have to be selective – very selective…
[…] Shoemoney pointed out the other day that Best of the Web directory is having a promotion – submitÂ a site to the directory and get 15% off. Each time you do, you get a chance to win 10 grand. Not bad. BOTW is a good directory to submit to if you can afford itÂ – it carries a lot of authority. They’ve also got a 60 day free advertising/category sponsorship deal (also gets the 15% off if you sign up during the promotion) that I may try sometime, too. […]
When is this contest over?
wow! I can go for a dream vacation with that!
