Some interesting facts
This contest is an excellent idea for link baiting as it has spurred a lot of excitement among bloggers and website owners.
Here’s what I found out doing a quick search and checking on Technorati:
People are entering the contest like crazy. Just a quick look at the reactions at Technorati shows some very interesting results. Just yesterday, the contest got 7 – 8 more entrants as more and more people are blogging about the contest on their blogs. The screenshot below highlights some of them.
I’ll also help promote the contest so he reaches his minimum 50 entrants limit soon, although I’m sure he must have reached that mark already 😀
The post will also be visible on my Digital Point Profile in the Recent Blog Post Feed link, so hopefully a lot of new webmasters will be able to signup from there!
I launched a new section for SEO Jokes on my SEO Blog today and to my surprise, I was checking my website stats, when I found someone had visited my site by searching for ‘seo jokes‘ on Google! I quickly checked the SERPs and my blog was on the first page of Google for this not so competitive keyword 🙂 This happened in less than 6 hours since I added the posts on the blog!
My website is coming on the first page of Google and also on the regional Google Search Engine. See the results yourself in the screenshot below!

I work as an SEO Manager at a company and often get all kinds of weird questions from people, clients, and even the office staff about SEO, Internet Marketing, Link Building and Search Engines. Most of them are pretty straightforward questions, which sometimes annoy me as they take up a lot of my time. Sometimes I feel irritated and angry at the kind of questions asked, but most of them are quite funny if narrated. So I’ve given them a twist and changed them to SEO Jokes. Hope you find them interesting and hilarious 😀
