    Most of you might know griz, he is an seo expert in the white hat category.

    recently he launched a competition of Asia'h Epperson blog. The one who beats griz in the search engines will win $500.

    and here is the search :

    http://www.google.com/search?q=Asia%27h+epperson

    the asia's-eperson.org is the winner at number 2 while the blogspot one at number 3 is griz.

    how did he beat griz with only 2 backlinks.

    someone please explain...

    btw here is griz's blog. hes really helpful: http://makemoneyforbeginners.blogspot.com/

    thanks a lot snow white. no wonder the link: command always confused me.

    so according to the new method, yahoo shows me as having 315 backlinks, yet i am no where near them for my keyword.

    what do i keep doing wrong?

    It would also seem that Dinesh's site (the one that beat Griz) has a few things that might make it seem a bit more trustworthy to G; like a privacy policy, an about page, and a site map. I will admit that I was surprised when he (Griz) got beat, but I hadn't gotten around to digging in to it yet.
