Title complete nonsense to you? Well, it won’t be for long. Let me explain. The site v7n.com, of which I am fairly unfamiliar with is running a “contest”. An SEO contest to be exact. The idea is to set up a web site and see who can get the highest search engine pagerandk using the phrase “v7ndotcom elursrebmem”. So what do you win? How about $4000.00 and an iPod.
Not bad. If your a natural sceptic like me you might ask why they are running this contest. Well, if you think about it really hard… Ok, I’ll tell you why. It’s a marketing ploy. Between the word of mouth traffic they will get from people clamoring to jump into the contest and the fact that their domain name is in the “phrase” will be enormous. Extra traffic means extra revenue. Because of this contest their ROI will be at least 10 fold.
Now, at this point I have no intentions of participating in this “contest” but I happen to know someone who is. And I figure I’ll help him out if I can, so here’s a link for you Tom. Check out Tom’s great v7ndotcom elursrebmem site! All I really want is the ipod… 😉 Just Kidding! Good luck with the contest.
