    congrats on the win. I think i was able to snag third place with my site in MSN. That is if carcasher ever announces the winners.

    Thank you SEOBoy and BILZ :)

    Congratulations for a third place :)
    I am not sure about Yahoo, but I think Gary (who also has .ca) took the 2nd place. Congrats!!!!!!

    I am sure that carcasher took screenshots on Dec 31st. It usually took a couple of days for them to announce the winners for the monthly checkpoints so I guess that it will be the same this time.

    Just as a followup on this, Marcus asked me in November if I would be interested in helping him out. Recall that I'm running the carcasherdotcom seocontest for Celiac Charity site - had previously won over $5,000 for charity in the V7ndotcom SEO Contest.

    I was competitive in the middle of the first page SERP's, but since only the #1 finisher collects anything, I said I'd be happy to help out if Marcus would be willing to donate some share of his winnings to my charity. He agreed that if he placed first in Google on January 1st, he would donate $1,000 of the Carcasher SEO Contest proceeds directly to the University of Maryland.

    So I tossed some PR5/6/7 link mojo his direction, and while only Google knows if this made a difference, it certainly didn't hurt.

    Glad to see Marcus eke out what appears to be a victory - we are all still waiting for official confirmation from the CarCasher folks ... but hey, I had a monster hangover yesterday from a good time on New Years Eve, so they may have too.

    So congrats Marcus for winning (and thanks in advance for donating to charity), and well run contest CarCasher folks with great competition from various players as it was a close finish.

    Congrats to all that won in this contest.

    Just out of curiousity, are there any good sources that list sites running seo contests?

    Ummm. Why havent they announced the winners? Anyone else getting worried about this? I sent them an email a day or two after the contest ended and they said they would announce the winners soon. Anyone else send them an email?

    I have sent them an email and they replied that they will announce the winners in a few days. That was last week. They will problably announce it very soon.
    I am happy that they confirmed my 1st place in Google via email :)

    Just check on Yahoo and google, no results yet :D I know.. the keywords were announced only a few hours ago.
    It'll be cool to see who get indexed first. Good luck to all who are participating :)

    As a followup, I'll confirm that the $1,000 donation to charity was made and I've asked the University of Maryland folks to update this page to reflect that - thank you Marcus and congrats again on winning.

    And being a glutton for punishment, I decided to toss up a GlobalWarming Awareness2007 entry also ... although as noted, it's not really a serious attempt, just curious to see if it will show up in the SERP's.

    well if you are into the global warming one, i guess many others have to drop their entries now ;)
    Edit : I found that you can join in for fun but for entering this contest your domain should be regged on or after 15th jan 2007 =(
    Good luck there

    Yea, I note that lower in my page where I say "Note that another requirement is that the domain must be registered after January 15th, 2007. That is not the case here, so while I'm not elgible to win those prize, I thought I would just mix it up. Plus if this site does well, it becomes an authority on GlobalWarming Awareness2007 and other folks may request linkage that I might be willing to do in exchange for donations to charity"

    Good luck to everyone seriously competing in this contest - the format is kinda neat with the equal weighting between Google, MSN, and Yahoo.
