Contest Rules

Hi InfoBarrelers!

Spring is upon us! (Well, in the northern hemisphere anyways) So, we are going to focus the contest on getting out and enjoying the fresh air. The topic for this month will be outdoor activities, be it camping, gardening, or even frisbie-ing. Lets give all those searchers, something to read when they are trying to find ideas for stuff to do. Of course we are going to continue the holiday and quasi-holiday topics as well, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc.

Any articles you write on either Outdoor Activities or Upcoming Holidays will give you a bonus to your ad percentage of 1% per article written, up to a maximum of 5% for the month of May. Also, any article you write this month, regardless of the topic, will be given a point total, based of the number of words. If at the end of the month your point total is above 20 you will receive another bonus of 5% to your ad percentage. If your total is above 30 points you will receive an additional 5% bonus, for a total bonus of 10% (5% from being over 20 points and 5% from being over 30 points). This point bonus is seperate from your topic bonus, so if you complete all the tasks in this contest, you will receive a bonus of 15% to you ad share for the month of May 2011.

To sum it up, each outdoor activity and holiday article written this month will get you a 1% increase on your ad share for the month of May 2011, up to a maximum of 5%. 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 April (not just the themed articles). So if you wrote an article on Barbecuing 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 may 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 May 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.
