On Links, Trackbacks, and Contests

Contest. Linking. Non A-listers. Cash prize? Could you repeat that into my good ear? It’s true, John Scott, the writer of the outstanding and heretofore Indie Virused “Internet Marketing Blog,” announced a $10,000 linking contest on March 1.

Although I was born in a barn and did not catch wind of this until yesterday, tons of folks know about the contest because John’s original announcement has received 181 comments to date! With a $3000 grand prize on the line, this is to be expected. At this point, however, my question is this: doesn’t it seem logical that The Indie Virus would absolutely be in the pole position for the grand prize?

I’ve kind of been riding a streak of good luck so far this year, and who knows – maybe it will continue with a $3000 shot in the arm from a humble little linking experiment…

Anyhoo, make sure you stay up to date on the action, as there are lots of cool sites out there that have been infected.

Take the Next Step!

I’m guilty of sending the virus to John. :) You do have a good point that the Indie Virus is a strong claim to the prize though – over 100 mentions on Technorati already.

And hey, I like the new design and colors, and thanks for the recommendation on the CSS book.
