Contest Rules

Hey Infobarrelers!

First off, we'd like to wish everyone a Happy 2010! We plan to have an amazing year this year and it will be in no small part due to your amazing work. We have plans to jump into the top 10,000 websites on the web in the next few months and who knows where by the end of the year.

Now to the part you all want to hear about, January's contest. We're going to stick with the formula we've been running with the last few months, but instead of just the holiday themed articles, we are going to add in another topic, Environmentalism! We thought that with all the talk global warming is going to get this year, this topic should get many searches over the year. So with the environmentalism topic you can write about recycling, alternative energy sources, emission control, important events like Kyoto and Copenhagen and as mentioned, global warming. We are also going to keep up with the upcoming holidays, like Valentine's Day and Easter, so feel free to write about those too.
So to sum up, You will get a 1% increase on your ad share for the month February 2010 for every environmentalism or holiday themed article written this month, up to a maximum increase of 5%. You will also get a 5% increase for getting over 20 points and another 5% for getting over 30 points, giving you a maximum ad share of 90%! Oh, and the writer with the highest point totals will get a $100 Amazon gift card, the second highest gets a $50 Amazon gift card and the third highest gets a $25 Amazon gift card.

So here is the deal, each article will still be worth 1 point for 400+ words, 2 points for 800+ words and 5 points for 1000+ words.

After you have completed your articles we ask that you send us an email (via the Contact Us page) with the titles of your holiday articles so that we can verify them and give you your ad share in February. Please try to send only one email as the more emails we receive the longer it is going to take us to read them all.

Prizes:
Member with the most points - $100 Amazon.com gift card
Member with the second most points - $50 Amazon.com gift card
Member with the third most points - $25 Amazon.com gift card
Achieve more than 30 points - 85% Adsense Share
Achieve more than 20 points - 80% Adsense Share
For every holiday themed article written receive an extra 1% Adsense Share, up to a maximum of 5%.

How do Points Work?
1 Point - 400+ Words
2 Points - 800+ Words
5 Points - 1000+ words

You MUST email us your holiday themed article titles by the end of February 1, 2010 for them to count.

Any questions, please email us via the Contact Us page.
