Contest Rules

Hey Infobarrelers!

Well, its coming up quick to back to school time, and I bet there are a few of you out there that are dreading September 7th as it will mean the end of your fun in the sun. For everyone of you dreading it though, there is someone who can't wait until they can send their kids back to class so they can have a few minutes of quiet time. Whether you fall into group 1 or group 2, this contest will be the one for you. We are going to focus on back to school articles this month. So, if you have an article idea that helps our back to schoolers get it on the site and you'll get that percentage increase in your ad share. We are also going to include any upcoming holidays in the contest as well. So if you don't want to write about back to school, write a few holiday based articles to get them ready for the big holiday season that is going to show up faster than you can blink.
As always, any article written on back to school or upcoming holidays will get you a 1% increase on your ad share for the month of September 2010, up to a maximum of 5% increase. You will also get a 5% increase in your ad share if you get over 20 points and a 10% increase if you get over 30 points.
The writer with the highest point total will get a $100US gift certificate to Amazon, second place will get a $50US Amazon gift certificate and third place get a $25US Amazon gift certificate.
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 August 2010. 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 August 1, 2010 for them to count.

Any questions, please email us via the Contact Us page.
Note: All articles involved in the contest must remain on the site in order to qualify for the prizes. If articles are removed they will not be counted towards your point totals.
