    Looks like they are trying to get people to rank for some keywords and you have to use their phone number in the website you rank so when the site does rank all the leads call that number.

    They wont pay a dime.

    Maybe he is just fucking around :D

    On another note, Google knows pretty much everything that goes around and it knows the flaws in their system, they are just too lazy to deal with it or its not worth going after a small percentage.

    $ 15 Billion revenues each year has something to do with it...

    It's this guy trying to get some free SEO and marketing for his new 'business':

    https://twitter.com/armirmehmeti

    The competition mentions GOGO Jets, which he owns - and it says the logo needs to look like the GOGO in GOGO charters, which also belongs to him:

    http://gogocharters.com/

    Just some cheapskate trying it on

    He's not just fucking around. He even paid for upgrades at those Freelancer sites.

    So, you're saying it is really an Honeypot by Google. :p

    Nice info. you got there.

    But he might not be scamming as he got deep pockets. Look at his ODesk profile: http://i.gyazo.com/98f83b22d3aeb0217665a8cbe88384b4.png

    Looks like a scam. But it could just be a really catchy listing. Very effective too considering how we checked his profile and all. lol.

    Let's say he gets 100 people to sign up for his contest.

    Let's say that 10 of them actually rank their sites for his KWs.

    What kind of $ volume would the leads he gets from that effort generate? He would then control a bunch of spots in Google.

    Every rent a private jet? It ain't cheap.

    Will he pay off those that win his "contest"? I have no idea but he could really bank should just 10% of the participants rank for those 5 KWs with his company name and phone number on the sites.

    I'd never participate in something like that as a SEO provider but he'll get a bunch for sure.
