    The contest will start January 15th (2007) and end May 1st (2007).

    Anyone can join the contest! Click here to read the rules.

    Some good stuff about this contest:

    1: There will be a scorecard page where you can follow the top leaders in the contest.

    2: In order to win you have to be good at optimizing for Google, Msn and Yahoo since total points are combined when determing the winner.

    3: You can win a car!!!!!!!!!

    4: The contest will be monitored by people that know SEO (one of them is me) so we are making the rules as fair as we possibly can!

    5: This SEO contest will be annual and we are expecting a lot of contestants already :)

    6: You can choose to link or not to link back to the official website and instead choose one of our banners linked or not linked.

    The keyword to optimize for will be announced on Jan 15 so stay tuned!



    Ps...

    I myself will not participate in this contest since I was one of the guys that helped organizing it.

    Sounds great. I like the fact that is a short contest. Great prizes as well. How about a keyword hint.

    Sounds really cool! A bit more funny than just cash-prizes!

    A car, a travel or a widescreen-tv is not bad ;).

    yearn allready!

    Sounds exciting :D
    Not sure yet if I'll join... I don't know too much about google ranking at the moment... and I know there'll be some SEO specialists who'll participate in this...

    I was thinking, why not ask contestant not to link to their contest entry from their older contest pages... just saying this as these old SEO contest pages are highly seoed and have much value in "google's eye" :D :p
