Contest Rules

Hey Infobarrelers!

Phew, that was a crazy 17 days! Of course I'm talking about the Vancouver Winter Olympics. Having been here for the entire thing and experiencing it all first hand was something I'll never forget. I recommend that if you can get yourself to an Olympics in your life, you do so, its simply and incredible experience. Now its back to reality and into March and, ick, tax season in April.
So as I mentioned, tax season is coming up and like it or not we all have to fill out those countless forms (and people everywhere are going to be looking for saving tips online), which is why we are going to make the topic of the month be Taxes. Your articles can be on anything tax relasted, be it how to fill out a form or tips on contributing to retirement savings plan or what you can write off, as long as it is tax related it will be counted towards a maximum 5% increase in your ad share, 1% increase per article.
If taxes aren't your thing then to get your bonus you can write on any of the upcoming holidays, be it Easter, St. Patrick's Day, Mother's Day or any other holiday that is coming up.
So to sum up, You will get a 1% increase on your ad share for the month April 2010 for every Tax 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 500+ 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 themed articles so that we can verify them and give you your ad share in April. 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 themed article written receive an extra 1% Adsense Share, up to a maximum of 5%.

How do Points Work?
1 Point - 500+ Words
2 Points - 800+ Words
5 Points - 1000+ words

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