    Why not organize a BHW SEO Contest ?
    I'm ready to organize this contest and to offer a nice prize.
    Does anybody thinks it's a good idea ?

    If a mod can join, i'll very proud to do this :)

    Thanks !

    You mean.. That all who join all starts with a fresh domain with example 10.000 monthly searches. The one who is on page 1, google win? Or what is the goal for it?

    Nope
    In fact we will choose a keyword who not exist on google and after a month or two, we will see who are in the first place on this keyword.
    One rule:
    The domain does have the keyword inside.
    and after, no rules:
    Blackhat or Whitehat
    Negative SEO allowed
    Xrumer, senuke, Scrapebox, Scrapeboard are allowed, you can use all the tools you want.

    Hmmmm... Lets see who can build the most links to my site in 2 months. Winner gets $50.00! :p But really, I would be down for this. It would be fun, and could lead to some future joint ventures between the top people. A lot of the elitists wont join because they believe its a waste of their time and they have never heard of "fun" before.

    Couple of years ago I would have took this up ;)

    But rather than a contest why not put prize money into better servers?

    Well I do not think that a person with 0 tools or resources should be joining an SEO contest. Everything is equal. The person who is the best at SEO BHW-style will win. Why would we want to limit anyone in this contest?

    Yes but unless someone is willing to offer a good amount, it won't be good at all.

    All people can participate !
    And trust me, we can have surprise with this kind of contest.
    I think the winners can have some contracts and it's very useful for us to see what google like or not.
    It's jun fun, no entry fee to participate and you can win something.

    I'd love to join in, but just wouldnt have time. If you do go ahead, I suggest choosing a good niche so that people can actually make some money from it.

    Not necessary.
    I think this kind of contest is very useful for everybody for 3 reasons:
    1°)It show you what google like when you want to SEO your niche.
    2°)The winners, even it's not a big prize, will have contracts by another members to seo their website
    3°) Everybody can join and test their skills, see what works and what doesn't works in 2011

    Choose an existing niche will not be equal
    That's why we will choose a word who doesn't exist on google.
    It will be easier to see the numbers of people who try this contest.

    Even though I like this idea, but I don't think we will have a contest running :)

    But a "contest" area would be great, so ppl can post contests.

    I agree with these 2 reasons mostly. There may be some "guru" hotshot out there who thinks his method is owning, but in reality when put against other competition is worthless. This would open his eyes and help him grow.

    And imagine if the winner opened a sales thread after this. They would get a ton of business, and they could charge a premium price because we KNOW they are the best service out there. It isn't just an immediate payout thats important sometimes, its thinking long term.

    Also, if the top 5 members JV'd after the contest, they could take on some HUGE keywords and make a fortune together.

    This is an idea that comes up on the forum every once in a while, but never seems to go anywhere... I think it would be fun though... I'd participate!

    Ok, let´s start.

    I just have to login to all my 34343 dedi servers, and start my 34343 license of xrumer.. ;)

    I think it´s a good idea, yes.

    I think i need approval for moderators or Admins to launch this contest.
    If generous people are ready to offer a prize (even a ebook) for the winners, it will be great.
    More generous will be people, More people can gain prize.
