v7ndotcom Elursrebmem - Seo Contest

Well v7n.com is at it this time, they are hosting the largest SEO contest to date. With a grand prize of 10 000 USD, search engine optimizers arounds are taking a stab at it. So what is v7ndotcom Elursrebmem? Well it is the keyword, which will determine the winner in the end.

Currently there are over 2 millions search results for V7ndotcom Elursrebmem, and everyday new-comers are creeping up the ranks. As of today the #1 postion in google, for the term v7ndotcom elursrebmem, is www.v7ndotcomelursrebmem.com. This webmaster has taken his site and skewed the phrase into a name of a hotel. Not sure if this a the rigth approach to take, as Google is smart enought to relate terms to other terms, ie v7ndotcom elursrebmem can be related to SEO more than to Hotel. But as of now it's not affecting the site.

An Xoduszero Update

The Canadian SEO championship has another week to go, so there it is still anyone's game. I'm hoping by creating more entries in my xoduszero blog I can win the competition. If you analyze the first blog entry I did on Xoduszero, you will find my keyword density was in favour for another term - and not Xoduszero. Definitely something I should have taken into consideration before entering my comments about Xoduszero. By writing this blog entry, I'm hoping to gain strength for the correct term instead. Before I decide to publish is entry, I will make sure that they keyword/prominence sits at 3-6%/50-83 for Xoduszero.

I made a big mistake early on in this race - I stuffed Xoduszero words into a non-sense language I made up. After realizing my big mistake (google doesn't like unknown languages) it was too late. I had an exceptional amount of backlinks to my original entry page, but now they are useless because google will refuse to cache that page. Let it be a lesson to you newbie's. If anyone wishes to hear more about these issues feel free to contact me.

I hope that everyone is able to learn a thing or two about search engine optimization from the competition; I know I will. Good luck to the rest of your trying to place #1 in google for the term Xoduszero.

Xoduszero Canadian SEO Championship

GoogleDance has started a Canadian SEO Challenge for the phrase Xoduszero. So far there are few contestants, unlike Dark Blue's SEO challenge, won by Anildash with the key word Nigritude Ultramarine. You can see how Anil used a blog based site to win the challenge. Some noteable comments on blog bombing and how Google, despite its efforts, have little control over blogs' power to manipulate search engine results. You can find out why blogs were so effective in this SEO challenge - here


Once again, it seems blog’s have manipulated Google’s algorithm - check out Ree’s blog for the term Xoduszero. Currently he is the number #1 spot, and ironically enough, has little content optimization for the keyword Xoduszero. In spite the fact I'm competing with him, I wouldn't be upset if I lost to him. He has been generous enough to donate some of his winning to VCN (Vancouver Community Network) and CC (Creative Common). I used to work for VCN, and I know that they are a non-profit organization and every little bit helps. Perhaps I will donate a bit of cash if I win. What goes around comes around – right?!

At this point I doubt I will become the Canadian SEO champion, but it's a great learning experience; and by the end of the contest I hope to have a better understanding about Google's Algorithm and how seach engine result positions are affected by not only content, but back links, clean html and well written meta tags.
