Contest Rules

Back to School season is just around the corner. Kids everywhere are dreading it and parents are excited to have a little peace and quiet around the house. To celebrate this joyous (or dreaded depending on your perspective) time, this month we are going to focus on back to school content.

Whether you write about ways to save on back to school clothing or things to pack for healthy lunches, we want to read about it.

If you don't feel like writing about back to school, feel free to write about any Holiday to get the extra ad share. Each 'Vacation' or 'Holiday' article you write will give you an additional 1% ad share up to a maximum of 5% for the month of September.

Also, any article you write this month, regardless of the topic, will be given a point total, based off the number of words. If at the end of the month your point total is above 20 you will receive another bonus of 5% on your ad share. 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 separate from your topic bonus, so if you complete all the tasks in this contest, you will receive a total bonus of 15% to your ad share for the month of September 2011.

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.

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 September 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 eligible themed article written receive an extra 1% ad 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 September 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.
