Beanstalk will be supporting the SEO Noobs SEO Contest with some prizes. We’ll be donating 30 minutes of consulting, an announcement on the Webcology Radio show (hosted by Jim Hedger and Beanstalk’s Dave Davies Thursdays at 2PM EST) and an announcement on Beanstalk’s blog.
Added in with the other great prizes this should be a great contest. It’s a bit different than most as the timelines are extremely short. The phrase will be one that doesn’t exist yet, the contest will launch on February 4 and the goal is to rank the site by March 4.
You’ll be up against the Beanstalk team however, other than the trophy, we’ll be donating any prize we might win (if we do) to the highest ranking newbie in the list (i.e. the highest ranking person with less than a year of experience in SEO). And of course, if we get beaten by a newbie I have to fess up and announce it here. Pressure’s on …
Also, we’re going to be taking this opportunity to test a couple different tactics against each other and see which ones work in such a short timeframe. We’ll be keeping you posted here. For information on the specific domains (coming once the contest starts) you can keep posted at our first Yicrosoft directory (SEO) site and our second Yicrosoft directory (Webmaster).
You’ll find details on the contest on the SEO Noobs website here. (Note: hyperlink removed as the site’s been taken down)
Good luck to all who compete.
Update: the contest is now on for “yicrosoft directory”. Entrants will be shooting to compete to rank a site in the top three results of Google within one month for “yicrosoft directory” with a brand new domain (not registered before February 4, 2008). Good luck to all who oppose us.
