SeoContest2008 - ended!

The seocontest2008 has come to an end and the 30 member plus strong professional seo team from France has won the contest.

Congratulations to them!

They worked hard and co-ordinated their work to get to the First position!

I, on the other hand finished at 200 odd position. Could be better - if i had put in some more time at it!

Things are hotting up for the seocontest2008 - the google SERPS keep on changing everyday - we all are targeting the word seocontest2008.

As of now there are over 419,000 entries for the contest with the Bulgarians onto the top spot - with over 5,500 backlinks pointing to their domain! Whew!

Whoever wins the first prize of 1,000 dollars will be the Best SEO - or so the thinking goes! Or maybe he has the deepest pockets to buy backlinks!

There are entries from all over the world
1. USA
2. UK

to name a few!

These are that i know of as of today! will open a forum post on UKWWW to ask!

Edit on 6/3/08

Finally this blog is on the 7th page and holding onto the position - all by organic link building and no paid backlinks.
That would be a waste of time and effort - since my intention is to learn seo at warp speed using the seocontest2008.

Here's Hoping that Seo Delhi will win the contest.

Let's see :-) !

SEO's deteriorating health caused by Seocontest2008!

Seocontest2008 is causing health deterioration in SEO's taking part in the seocontest2008 ! The seo's from all over the world are constantly on their computers putting in long hours in front of their monitor neglecting their health and having a very sedentary lifestyle!

As you all know that prolonged periods of sitting without exercising gives rise to obesity, sluggish blood flow leading to Deep Vein Thrombosis, increased oral intake of food causing weight gain which in turn cause atheroma deposition in the heart arteries - which in the long term can cause heart attacks etc.

Also the top seo's are getting stressed trying to stay 2 steps ahead of their competitors and constantly trying "think out of the box". The SEO's who are smokers have increased their cigarette consumption further leading to accumulation of toxic effects of the cigarette smoke!

I hope all the seo's are trying to get regular exercise etc so as to counteract the ill effects of trying to compete in the seocontest2008

Therefore thought that i will get pro-active and try and make this a success!

To look on the positive side of this contest I am learning a lot ! At the moment i am concentrating only on link building for seocontest2008 and edoctor and bed and breakfast new delhi. So at the same time all my sites are getting some link building!

Hopefully something will come out of the insane amount of time i am putting in towards learning SEO & SEM. SEOcontest2008 Coverage
