An SEO Christmas Present – Giveaway

Update: Contest is open to all. This contest is not US only. Yay!

A few months ago I decided that I wanted to do something special this Christmas for my readers and for some kids. While I’ve still been pondering what to do, I got a cool email from a friend over at one of my fav magazines and an idea was born. Boris over at Search Marketing Standard has graciously offered to give away a 3 year subscription to his magazine for the winner of my little contest (more on that in a second).

In the spirit of Christmas giving though, he’s also offered to sweeten the pot with a discounted rate for my readers and a charity match to one of my favorite charities. You’ll get a 67% discount off the price of a year’s subscription. It’s usually $15 per year and for the next 15 days you can get it for $4.95 US ($6.60 Intl) by using coupon code HOLIDAY67. (subscribe here)

Bonus: He’ll match each subscription that comes through with this coupon code with a dollar to Toys For Tots.

The Contest

So, how do you win? Well, it’s actually fairly easy. I want to know what you are doing this Christmas to change the world. No, not the whole world, just your little part of it. Just post it on your blog and ping back here to enter (trackback). At the end of next week I’ll go through the trackbacks or comments and compile a list of all the entries and make one big list. I’ll post the full list here and will choose the winner. Of course, if you have one that you think really shines, I’ll take that under advisement. I don’t really want to try voting on this one, but if there’s one that just really amazes you please let me know.

So, if you are doing anything special, from soup kitchens to Operation Xmas Child, please let me know. I want to be inspired. How are you changing your corner of the world?

    It might help some of your international readers to know if there are geographical restrictions. In my experience, most if not all such offers have the sub-text, explicit or as “oh,didn’t we explain that?” that the prize can only apply to people resident in the US – or the US or Canada. That’s an observation, not a complaint – international postage is expensive: just that it can be very irritating to go through the steps and then be told you are not eligible.

  2. Hi Des,
    Prizes in competitions are icing on the cake.
    If you’re a new blogger, getting exposure from Robyn’s blog is probably better than any prize that any contest could offer (well….unless it’s a lifetime’s supply of fudge sundaes and mud pies…)

  3. Hey Robyn,
    What a great idea. Glad to see my friend Andrew Wee is here. This is an exceptional deal and a very good cause.

    Let’s help the Kids!

    Merry Christmas,
