Page Rank Olympics


If you've scrolled this far looking for a contest, you've come to the right place. The Olympics start Friday night at 8:08 PM, and so do the MTMD Page Rank Olympics.

1. Register for the Page Rank Olympics by leaving a comment here with your current Google PR and Technorati Ranking. All PRs and Technorati Authority Rankings will be verified on Saturday night.
2. Write a post on your blog about this contest and the Olympic Games.
3. Link to this post in your own post.
4. Comment back on this post that you have made your own post about this contest and the Olympic Games.
5. I will link to every participating blog, and author an Olympic-oriented post referencing every participating blog. All participating blogs are encouraged to do the same.
6. Use whatever graphics you want.
7. The blog that has the highest increase in Google Page Rank and Technorati Authority at the close of the Olympic Games on August 24th Wins.
8. Prizes will be awarded on August 31st, 2008.

Gold Medal: The blog that increases the most in both Google Page Rank and Technorati Authority will win a $100 Grand Prize.

Silver Medal: The blog that has the highest increase in Technorati Authority will win a $50 Prize.

Bronze Medal: The blog that has the 2nd highest increase in Technorati Authority will win a $25 Prize.

Note: While it is very unlikely that there will be any change in Google Page Ranks during this time since Google has gone through with an update in Page Ranks, the additional link traffic that this contest will generate may have a positive impact in the next update cycle. Should no Google Page Ranks be updated, prizes will be awarded solely on the increase in Technorati Authority.

Good luck to all!

For reference purposes only: MTMD has a PR 4 and Technorati Ranking of 122 at the start of this contest.

Thanks for reading.

Google PageRank is only updated quarterly, and was updated most recently at the end of July, so it won't change by the end of the Olympics. You may want to extend your contest through the end of October, or use Alexa/Technorati or Technorati alone.

Alrighty, I'll play! I've never payed attention to my Technorati numbers before, so this will be interesting. PR3, TA194.

COunt me in Matt! I think this is going to be fun! I used to have a PR 3 but was slapped with a 0. I wasn't too particular with Technorati but I have it checked it:

Well... That leaves me out. Our submission would be unfair because of our project's methodology.

You can look and see:

But it would not be fair to others in my opinion. You might want to check your contestants to see if they are members. I don't want to shoot down my own testers, but I am hoping if they participate with us, that they will consider stepping aside, so as not to take advantage of your contest. I dunno? Maybe the call is up to you?

Lets hope my testers don't get mad for me being here, but that is one of our goals at LBP, to bring back an even playing field among the SE&LI spammers and scammers. Sorry testers if you are reading this, but we all promised to be fair to our peers. :-)

Well this is so nice
But I agree with Roxiticus, that google page rank will updated every 4 months. So google will update again about end of October or beginning of November.
I think you must be consider about alexa and technorati
Here my page rank
Google Page Rank : 3
Technorati : 31,560
Alexa : 280,143 (when I add this comment)

I will let you know after I make a post about this contest.

Success For Us

All, thanks for playing...I'm well aware that Google has just gone through an update cycle. But participation now will help the next time the update occurs. In the mean time, participation will generate immediate increases in Technorati Rankings and you will get links and backlinks from my PR 4 Blog.

As much as I'd like to join in the fun, I'm going to watch from the sidelines, since I have no clue how to install all these ranking programs or services into my blog. I acknowledge my ignorance.

Nevertheless, I'll be following the progress of this contest to see who'll win the prizes at the end of the contest. Good luck to all.

Matt, I might still write a post in my blog to inform my readers about this contest, so that they'll have a chance to paricipate.

Okay Matthew, I signed up for google analytics and technorati authority--rank 412,857. No ranking given by google yet. It tells me that it takes 24 hrs for it to collect data after signing up. I signed up for alexa, and that gave me a ranking. I'm at the very bottom of the ranking file at 2,421,811. Does this count? If not, I still wrote a post advertising your post and contest.

Although I do hope I win, I still see the very good side of this idea. Much more if each participant is 'required' to link to every blog that joined preceeding his/her entry. But anyway, I am joining and I will be back for the required details together with my post about this contest.

Thank you for encouraging us and also for giving awards to make our blogs better.

Hi Matt! I just got my new blog up and running. I am starting on zero on all counts. I would love to join. I do not expect to win. I just want to challenge myself and see how far I could bring my blog in terms of Technorati ranking in such a short period.

Thank you for the opportunity.

It's no secret that proper nutrition is a vital part of our health and well being. The challenge for many of us, however, is that even though we may be taking what we believe to be effective amounts of vitamins, minerals, and other important nutrients…in reality, we are often not getting the benefits that we expect.
