I remember some old SEO contest that I join, got a domain(s), did nothing until the contest ended. Sometime I guess I get too excited with SEO contest, but ends up too busy to work on them and they remained untouched. I remember joining the hoax contest shopautodotca which I did nothing but get a domain. Filipino SEO Leo Mirabuna did well in that contest along with Ashad Shaikh from India but the prize was never given by this Canadian Car Shop company. Same thing with Paradise Philippines. I guess when SEOContest2008 started, I was fresh again and after that contest, Busby SEO Challenge and the discontinued Kabon Footprint, were also contest that I took no action but get a domain. Now for Promotional Items Corporate Gifts Srednarb contest, well in this case, I thought I will still be lazy working on my site.
Active SEO contest competitors know that the French SEOSphere team is a team hard to beat in SEO competitions and they are a current competitor at the Busby SEO Challenge. There were a strong team in previous SEO contest such as the SEO World Championship in 2007 that I was fortunate enough to win this contest. I myself must agree that I received a lot of help from many people who were not competing in the contest.
Just a few months back, our industry SEO friends in the UK organized by UK Webmaster World also ran an SEO challenge early this year, 2008 that ended on April Fool’s day although this was no joke. The SEOContest2008 where I won 2nd place, was an SEO challenge won by the French team, SEOSphere.
