    jabb,

    for me it was a way to jump start my new SEO business - a kind of Public Relation campaign, getting my name known, getting clients etc.

    For me the reason to enter the contest was just to have fun and also do a couple of SEO tests... and even if i place at #6 I am very satisfied with the results since I haven´t been doing SEO for more then about 6 months..
    Jim was the one who gave me the tip about the contest..

    Any theories Marcus on why the very strong double 301 redirects you got from your other site and SteveH's haven't given you a monster boost? As noted earlier, I thought this was a smart strategy - am puzzled why the big "G" hasn't been more generous to 'ya ...

    I also thought that my strategy would work better, I think the reason simply is that my competiton is so tough...
    Anyway I´m glad to be in the top 10 :)
    but to be honest I expected to place in the top 5.... Close but no cigarr

    I am not seeing that here, or on any DC's at McDar, but maybe there's still time for more change.

    I entered it for fun, I don't really do SEO for anyone but myself so it was just an interesting thing to do.

    Not fast enough! , yep that DC shows Jim back on top, I would be surprised to see it roll out, it doesn't look ready for the public in my opinion - then again would that be just like google ;) :rolleyes:

    Anything can change between now and noon - looks like it is being reported on by the national media.
