Page name: Link to Elftown competition [Exported view]
# of watchers: 18
This contest is closed now
This is a competition for those of you with web-pages, and especially professional webmasters. The goal is to have the highest rating web-page that points to Elftown and the prize is that you will get a link from <URL:start.html>
to your web-page for an entire year.
§1 Your webpage should come as high up as possible on http://www.google.com/search?as_lq=www.elftown.com
, when [Hedda
] looks at it. (And it must still have the link!)
§2 Restrictions of the page. The page must not
Be a Heddate-site page (Like www.elfpack.com
) or an Elfwood page.
Be racist, contain illegal material or otherwise be something that I refuse to link to from Mainstuff. Note:
I will accept pages that are describing how much Elftown sucks.
§3 The prize will be a link to your webpage in the calendar-notes. That link will be there for the entire year of 2007! There will also be links from this contestpage to all the previous winners as long as Elftown is running, and here you can also add a short note about what the page is. This is very valuable for your site!
The second and third place will also get links from this page.
§4 One page can only win if it hasn't won the last 5 years. "Similar" pages will also be excluded. That includes all personal pages of one person, different main pages on the same site and other attempts to go around this rule.
(In example: If someone wins with a MySpace address, then a MySpace address can win next year too, but www.xnetz.com/kalisoniclilo/ can't win if www.xnetz.com has won before, because these pages both belong to [Hedda])
§5 I'll do my best to find the winners, but please feel free to give me a hint if (and only if!) your page is high up in the search. Non-Elftowner pages that happen to get high up in the search will not be considered as part of the competition, until they come here and tell me that they want to compete.
So how do you make your page?
Well, first you have to have a web-page that Google can read (like a MySpace-page, a normal website or something like that) and find. Google will find any page that you've linked to from a page that Google has read. And then, of course, you have to have a link to www.elftown.com
After doing that, you have to wait and wait and wait... It takes at least 2-4 weeks before Google's computers are updated generally speaking.
Then you have to get a high rating on your page. One way to get a good rating is to make the page very popular, so that many people link to it in their blogs.
Please note that Google has some tricks to ignore things, like 400 links that suddenly appear. Things like that can actually damage your rating, at least for a while.
It's also better to have links from pages with high ratings, and from a root-page. It also depends on where on the page the link is.
