    Hi,

    I stumbled upon a thread by pure chance ...

    http://www.v7n.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22836

    Finally!

    I will be playing in this one.

    I recognize many faces in that thread, Mike, minstrel, shoe etc. but didn't find a word about it on DP.

    This will be fun. :)

    Wow, I am definitely going to join that. Finally, a competition I like and spending time on!

    I'll host the site on my own servers and I got an AMAZING domain name, which is pretty cool:

    I have a few questions though Mike, can't it just be an already existing website and they just change the keywords? It would be pretty cheap if it was like that!

    Per what I understood there are no rules at all.

    So you can try to rank high with any site you whish.

    yeah, sounds fun.. but four full months is a lot of time to dedicate resources to a contest page.

    I think that would be ok. I'm assuming many entries will be with urls from domains that have been indexed for quite a while, so as far as I'm concerned, anything goes :)

    This sounds great, how does everyone feel about the likely winners?

    I expect that with the sandbox the winner could well be a current site with a page devoted to the contest.

    Also how about sites with 100,000 coop weight to spare, they sure could bump an established site up or knock down a new site........

    Yeah, this is very interesting.

    John, who started the contest, says there are no rules.

    I think we will learn a lot about this.

    I don't think existing sites should be allowed. All Shawn would have to do is add the kewords to his home page (and maybe throw a bit of coop weight at it with the keywords as anchor text) and he'd win. I don't really see how people can be interested in participating unless they have powerful sites that they are sure they can win with. Am I missing something?

    I doubt anyone with a site making thousands a day would risk screwing up their domain for a contest.

    A site doesn't need to make any money to be powerful, in fact, it could be a site that loses money.
