What is this challenge?
We’re going to create a new Wix website optimized for the keyword “SEO Hero”. Everyone is invited to create their own website (on any platform) and if it ranks the highest for that search term in 4 months’ time, we’ll give them $50,000. You can enter your site in the competition by submitting a link from (and including) November 16 to December 16, 2016. Every day from March 13 to March 15, 2017 at 12:00pm ET (noon) and 20:00pm ET, the moderator will search for the term “SEO Hero” on Google. The site to rank the highest on average over this period will be the winner. In the event of a draw, a seventh search will be run on March 16, 2017 at 12:00pm ET (noon) to determine the winner. The winner will be announced within 2 weeks of the challenge end date.
When does the challenge run?
Create a website in English (using any platform) about the SEO expert/s you’d consider to be heroes. Optimize it with the search term “SEO Hero”. The website that ranks the highest at the end of the challenge period will win its owner $50,000.
How do I enter competition?
Can I enter after the competition start date? You can submit your site URL from November 16 to December 16, 2016. No entries will be accepted after this date.
