    So, i am starting a series of Weird SEO tips. Many of you might already know about these small actionable tips so if you do, this post is not for you. Please scroll down and i am sorry that you had to waste a click.

    Tip 1 is called Scholarship SEO. What you do under this strategy is that you simply create another page on your website which is a scholarship page. Give some monetary or non-monetary rewards. I always give Amazon gift cards but you can offer something that goes with your website. Make sure that the offer is not too small and always ask your participants to do something in return. It can be submitting a 1k word article which you might use later, it can be some social shares or anything that you find valuable.

    After that, start emailing to all the websites that publish scholarship news. Don't forget the universities. That's how you get legit edu backlinks.

    One tip: If you are ending the scholarship at a point, you can always redirect your scholarship page to the homepage. That will put more weight on your homepage.

    That is some nice outside the box thinking... You could probably spin this idea into contests in general because there are contest sites out there too.

    That's how this site dominates keywords like 'vaporizer' https://quitsmokingcommunity.org/scholarship/

    Pretty nifty

    How much money or what value gift cards do you offer.. That's the big question.
    Will a university or educational institution really list a scholarship that consists of a $50 gift card?
    Most that I see are around $1000, although I have seen some scholarship for $200, but never less.
    Can you share which institutions you have used that will permit a $10 or $50 scholarship because I cannot find any..
    Thanks

    One other thing..
    What happens when the scholarship ends..?
    I know you have mentioned that you can redirect the scholarship page, but when the scholarships ends does the link from the edu institution also end? I cannot imagine that the links stay live once they scholarship is over..The edu institution must update it's scholarship page periodically and remove old or outdated entries.
    I may be wrong so hoping you can enlighten me..
    Thanks
