As it turned out, the $2,500 Blogging Contest was a scam, so I am now entering the $100 contest at Contest Blogger. This contest is open only for bloggers who were ‘fooled’ by the contest he was promoting on his blog.
Many webmasters have already started removing links from their contest entries, and Phil has listed all the websites trackbacks on his blog so people get to know about the new contest.
I came to know of the new contest by the traffic / referrals in my web stats from his blog, and then found the trackbacks when I logged into my WordPress Admin Panel.
The deadline for this new contest is September 7, so make sure you follow the instructions to win 100 bucks.
Nowadays Internet is variegated with banners and advertisements entitled with the line “webmaster earn money”. Some of the most relevant moves should be mentioned for those who have already created their own webmaster earn money business or are going to.
A person involved into webmaster earn money operations usually faces such problems as choosing a dedicated server provider for its sources, and in further development of webmaster online business this choice will play a great role.
It is high time to work out a plan of getting traffic. Webmaster should specify for himself what exactly he is going to sell. Then spend some time making clear what values are matching his goods, because it will determine what exact ways or their combinations will turn to be most beneficial in attracting and then monetizing traffic. Webmaster can choose or combine such methods of attracting traffic as generating it with the help of social networks and search engines, or buy it in pay per click advertising companies.
Now it is the moment to make sure that generated traffic will be monetized. To convert traffic perfectly webmasters combine several methods: they place text ads on their sites, apply to online marketing or partnership networks.

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!
