How To Win This Contest?

Winning this contest is simple. You just have to publish a well written guest post and collect as many points as possible. Every guest post published during the contest period will be a part of this contest so you don’t have go into any formalities of telling me that I wanna take part and blah blah..The guest author who collects the most points wins the prizes listed above according to their position in the chart.

The Points System

For becoming the winner of this contest, you will have to collect points and the author having highest points at the end of the contest will win the prizes.

  1. For your every guest post that gets published on SmartBloggerz, you will get 2 points. You can submit any amount of guest post for review.
  2. 10 Retweets of your guest post = 1 point
  3. 5 BlogEngage Votes = 1 point
  4. Every unique commentator in your guest post excluding author replies = 1 point
  5. 5 Digg Votes = 1 Point
[From 2-5 in the above list, I will call it as “social media points“]

That’s it! Collect points and win this contest. But do note here one important thing: the social media points will be rewarded only for one guest post which makes the best in total.

An Example For The Explanation Of Points System

I think most of you have understood the points system for this contest and how you will be earning them. But still, those who are still confused with it, here is an example for an easy explanation.

Suppose a guest author – Mr. SB registers for a contributor account at SmartBloggerz for participating in this contest. He submits 2 articles which gets published, titled as:

  1. How to Blog
  2. Importance Of Blog

Now, for these guest posts which then gets published, gives him a total: 2 x 2=4 Points

Now consider that article – “How to Blog” gets ~ 25 re-tweets, 12 unique comments, 10 blog engage votes and 15 digg votes. So on calculating, the total social media points will be: 25/10 x 1 + 12 x 1 + 10/5 x 1 + 15/5 x 1 = 19.5 Points

Again, the article – “Importance Of Blog” gets ~ 20 re-tweets, 10 unique comments, 10 blog engage votes and 10 digg votes. So on calculating, the total social media points will be: 20/10 x 1 + 10 x 1 + 10/5 x 1 + 10/5 x 1 = 16 points

Clearly, the article “How to Blog is getting more social media points, thus only those points will be added to points generated by the submission of guest post i.e the overall total of guest author – Mr. SB for this contest: 4 + 19.5 = 23.5 points.

Now I hope that you have understood properly how the points will be distributed. But still!! if you haven’t understood it then forget everything as you don’t have to worry about it. You just have to submit articles for review and everything will be handled by me.

Some Simple Rules

The rules for this contest are very simple but should be obeyed properly…

  • For earning “social media points” you can’t bribe or purchase something that would increase your chances of winning. But you can obviously ask your friends, take help from your blog readers for helping you in winning this contest but that should be without any kind of bribe like “I will give you some part of the prizes on winning” etc…
  • The Guest articles should be clear in language and must obey the guest posting guidelines.
  • Maximum 3* articles will be published in a day on this blog, so priority over publishing will be given to those guest posts which were submitted earlier for review.
  • Please avoid submission of such articles which are very basic in nature and whose quality suits only the “Article Directories”. Please try giving your articles a catchy title (if possible and relevant). Use images, heading tags and make it creative.

* most probably one or two per day | Max. 3 only if high volume of submission is noticed.

Tips For Winning This Contest

For winning this contest you can take help of these tips:

  • SmartBloggerz blog is suitable for articles related to blogging tips, make money online and seo. So submitting articles related to it could result in better chances over winning the contest.
  • You can also publish some interesting guide or tutorials or tricks which are very beneficial for other people. For example: How To Speed Up WordPress Blog In 3 Simple Steps or My 3 Killer Methods To Build Massive Backlinks etc.
  • For gaining more re-tweets you can submit an article related to “Twitter”. Similarly, submitting articles related to digg or blogengage will get you more votes on those sites thus increasing your social media points.

Contest End Date

The contest will end on 26th May 13th June completely. Any guest post submitted for review after 26th May won’t be counted eligible for this contest.  The result will be declared around 1st June 20th June as I will need some time for evaluating the points.

Any Doubts!

What if my article will be published in the last week of May or on the last day?
The first few articles will get much more attention (especially with the related post-plugin). Can anyone win by getting his guest post published at the end of the contest?

That’s why I told that priority will be given to those posts which are submitted earlier. That’s how the contests works! If you participate in a contest later the your chances of winning it might be lesser but not always!

I’m also thinking to extend the contest end date for a that could be good news for you..You can submit your guest post within few days if you are concerned that it won’t get much attention.

akira07 May 7, 2010 at 4:55 pm

Do you mean extend the contest for a week (to give a chance for late entries to get comment and social media point) but there will be no more guest blogging entries accepted during that week?

Typhoon May 7, 2010 at 6:14 pm

Everything will be informed in the middle of this month..So wait till that time.

Lee Ka Hoong May 10, 2010 at 9:01 am

I think this method would be good, no more guest post entries at earlier date, but counting score date make it a week after the closing date so that late guest post can receive more comments or give them a chance to promote it.

I’ve submitted my guest post last week but I think there is still quite a number of guest posts in front me.

Keep us updated Sushant.
