A new SEO contest started yesterday, day before, all depends on your time zone. I created a v7ndotcom elursrebmem page out of idle curiosity and a v7ndotcom elursrebmem contestants directory for people to get extra, themed, links to their sites.
There’s been stacks of activity with domains being bought and onsold, ebay auctions, charity contestants (go Alek) and, of course, spam.
I just checked my Google Analytics page for the directory just to see who the competitors are. Now it is an international affair, but look at the countries. Pretty much only western, first world countries.
So, is SEO and the little games associated with it, just for the bored middle classes?
It’s all really just a bit of fun. Your contestants listing is cool.
I’ve also created something – a “view” (dashboard, newsmaster, prism, whatever) for tracking the various and multiplying seo contests here http://www.seodata.com/SEO-Contest/re-default.aspx
