This is a new SEO contest (Search Engine Optimization) organized by myself. It started on February 15th and will end on May 15th. I'm interested to compare the results between the different search engines, both for pages and images. The search expression is "the four required words".

This SEO contest is interesting because:

  1. only common english words are used (no elursrebmem, redscowl, rohtuaswentahyarg or btdino)
  2. it uses a quoted expression
  3. it uses four web search engines and three image search engines

I'm an individual so the prizes are not so big (total: $335). However, if this contest is a success, prizes may be increased, searches added or new positions considered. All prizes will be paid via PayPal and include the transaction fee.

If you're a company and want to give a prize, let me know. You will be advertised here (at the top of the page and with the prize) for four years minimum.

Now read the page that lists the searches and prizes.
Join the competition now!
