    There have been some interesting new sites popping up in the results. But I can't name them, or someone here will start linking to them ... helping them even more ;)

    Yea, there's definately some new players popping up - all interesting to watch ... including my V-E site dropping down to #18 in Google ... although it's #1 in both MSN and Yahoo - if that isn't evidence of Google Bowling, I don't know what is.

    Nintendo!

    To bad u bombed yourself :( It´s like throwing a bowling ball in the air with all your power and then look up and watch it fall on your face.... ;)

    But I am interested in hearing more about this G bowling u seem to have some experince in that field. Could this be what happend to Alek´s site? :confused:

    Maybe this means that some modifications on certain ad-systems should be done or whadda u say?

    Here is the Bowling for Dollars page - as described, after being the top-3 for a while, I took a big drop on Google and #12 as of Mar 15th, but still #3 in MSN and #1 in Yahoo (screenshots provided). I just checked and I'm #2 in MSN and #1 in Yahoo ... but down to #18 in Google.

    So call it what you may, there is something different about Google's algorithm and I provide my two cents theory about it there. Thanx also to several DP'ers who have chimed in with their thoughts too. On the off-chance that someone from Google is reading this, would love to hear what (if anything) I can do to help out.

    BTW Nintendo, my contest page is showing 30,000+ backlinks in MSN and Yahoo - how does that compare to what you had?

    P.S. Stuart is pretty funny with this quote above "If you ask me the ones doing well on the first page don't need any help." - anyone else notice how he has been steadily climbing and is currently #8 ... now I just need to convince him to 301/302 redirect to my charity site a few weeks before the end of the contest! ;-)

    Speaking of that, I understand that 30x redirects were used in the CarCrash SEO contest - anybody planning to use those in V-E?

    Here's how to look using MSN which shows 31,408 on my end right now.

    My V-E contest stats aren't as detailed as yours (I'll be updating 'em on the 1st), but does show the overall trend.

    I put the KWs now in many of the comments on my entry page that did not have them. Now let's see if that changes anything.

    This is a cool little tool that lets you do BL checks in all three all at once. It also has some other nifty features built in that are great for SEO. http://www.quirk.biz/searchstatus/ I use it all the time.

    Just added April 1st numbers to my contest stats page ... complete with screen shots.

    #1 in Yahoo, #2 in MSN ... and #17 in Google - no love from the big "G" :-(
