Contest Rules

Happy New Year everybody!

To start the new year off with a bang we are going to focus this month on solving people's problems and holiday articles (Valentines day, etc).

We are looking for articles that very specifically answer a question. Articles that answer questions are often times passed around different communities and often times result in getting many visitors if your article is detailed enough.

An example of a question would be something like "How do I setup the firewall on a Netgear Prosafe 802.11n Dual Band Wireless Access Point". Try to be as specific as you can!

You do not have to use the how to format in order for these to count.

To sum it up answers to questions or holiday article written this month will also get you a 1% increase on your ad share for the month of February 2011, up to a maximum of 5% increase. You can also get a 5% increase to your ad share if you get over 20 points and a 10% increase if you get over 30 points. Points are given out for ANY article written in January(not just the themed articles). So if you wrote an article on "How to configure a western digital live set top box" that was over 1000 words, you would get 5 points to your point total and an extra 1% for the themed article.

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.

Each article is 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 February 2011. 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 product review or holiday 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 product review or themed article titles by the end of February 1, 2011 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. If there is a tie, the writer with the most amount of words written will win.
