SEO Contest ended. Final placement 15

Ok the recent contest has come to an end, and personally I got a 15th place which derived by my 6th place in Yahoo.
I am pretty satisfied by the results - thinking of how little time I used on the actual site and backlinking.

Below is some final scorecards so you can see the winners. (more…)

19 days left on Globalwarming Awareness2007 Contest

So we are comming closer to the end date of the biggest SEO contest ever. 19 days are remaining and my site Globalwarming Awareness2007 is still doing very good in the contest. In this minute I actually have the 3. place in the contest with best rank in Yahoo.
It is a shame the offcial site do not use time on updating their score card/leaderboard, but then it's good others are 🙂

The last couple of days my site has been bouncing between 1. and 3. place on Yahoo search and this is the recent total score card for the contest. (more…)

My Global Warming Awareness 2007 site

Well, it has been a while since I wrote anything about the Globalwarming Awareness2007 contest I'm participating in.
Most of my time the last couple of months has gone into clients and their websites. Development and SEO.

My rankings in the contest have not been to impressive, but that is what can be expected when no time has been put into updating the site and keep getting fresh backlinks. The normal rankings I have seen the last months for my site is around:
Google - Ranking between 40-60
Yahoo - Ranking between 10-20
MSN - Ranking between 30-200

But to my surprise as I started this thread, I noticed my site jumped to a 2th position in Yahoo. Well well, thats nice to see. 9 point is my best score so far. Maybe I should give this contest a second chance 🙂

Again, if anyone out there have a site and want to help me with backlinks, please let me know. I'm sure I can compensate with other good backlinks back to you - as thanks.

I thank the contributors and current standings overview

To thank the different Danish websites that is supporting me, I have created a page on my Danish directory, where every contributor gets a permanent backlink from a trusted site.
I am thinking of doing the same on Global Web Links Directory, to thank the international sites helping with link support atm.

The "Thank You" pages will be placed permanent on my directories, and will both gain a minimum PR4. (Support me 3 months, and get lifetime backlink. Some are able to see the benefit in this)

Status on the GlobalWarming Awareness2007 contest

Ok, a lot have happened the first 6 days in the Globalwarming Awareness2007 SEO contest. I will try sum up the things I have noticed.
Google was the fastest SE to catch up on the results, then came Yahoo and MSN as the last one.
Right now around 600.000 pages have been indexed for the search term. Wow

I made my first mistake at launch day, as I was too impatient with my host to get the domain ready. So I just sneaked a couple of backlinks in to my new domain from my directory Global Web Links..  Big big mistake!
Google got a hold on the link from my directory 25 minutes after I set it up and that resulted in Google tried to crawl my new non-existent contest page, returning a DNS error to Googles crawler.
Ugh. That put my www. domain in a holding line for so far 6 days, and I am the only one to blame. Grrr, damn impatience.

The 17th Google found my GlobalWarming Awareness2007 subdomain, crawled and indexed it, but after 1 day, it got removed from the SERPs again.

The 20th Google decided to give my www. domain a new chance, crawled all my pages, and indexed my page as the only one, even though I had 6 pages crawled from the www. domain.

Now today the 21th I realised the last indexed page have also been removed from the SERPs. But I surely expect it to be temporary and all my pages should show up soon, and hopefully rank well.

But lesson learned - Never ever promote a domain where the DNS isn't setup yet. I've never really had a use to do this in the past, and now I sure know not to do it in the future as well 🙂
Would have been fun to be among the first to rank well, but I buried myself on this one.

The initial pages have been setup and I will now keep the focus on backlinks

Update 2 hours later:
Ok things happen fast here, and I'm back into the serps.
Directorylink, just for the link love of it 🙂 Global Warming Awareness2007

GlobalWarming Awareness2007 webpage created today

GlobalWarming Awareness2007 .dkOk, finally got my entry page made GlobalWarming Awareness2007 as entry in the SEO World Championship 2007.
My host was very slow on this one, and took almost 24h from I registered, to I got the domain *grumble*. BUT, now the page is up.

I am very pleased about the subject they choose for this competition, as it combined 2 of the things I have used years of my life on.

The system I run, is a CMS I have developed from scratch and tuned over the years to fit my needs. It is not 100% SEO fine tuned, but I think it is better to go with my own code than some free source that might be better in SEO terms, but doesn't represent me the same way.

The coming days / weeks I will gradually submit more and more content to the website, as I get them written. I don't want to reuse anybody else's texts, but rather make my own, and own conclusions to the Global Warming issues we face today.

I have set up a contribution page also at GlobalWarming Awareness2007 Contributors, for those who offer their help to me either by valuable information, tips, or quality backlinks. If you want to help our, feel free to throw me an e-mail and I'll get back to you.
