Here are some of the FAQs we keep hearing clients and other people asking us about the Wix SEO hero challenge, which has set tongues wagging in the world of SEO!
DO I HAVE TO PAY TO ENTER THE WIX SEO HERO CHALLENGE?
No, entry is free. But participants must bear the additional costs of purchasing a domain and any other costs associated with its running.
WHAT IS THE WIX SEO HERO COMPETITION?
The challenge is simple – to produce a website which ranks #1 for the search term SEO hero and beat sponsors Wix!
IS THIS COMPETITION RIGGED?
There has been some suggestion that this will be rigged in favour of the organisers – but we doubt it. However there is no doubt that it will be hard to beat the sponsors at their own game!
IS THIS A SCAM OF SOME SORT?
Once again, no, this is not a scam. It is a genuine competition to become a search engine optimization winner.
Apart from benefitting the organizers in terms of publicity, there is no real incentive to scam anyone there!
WHAT IS THE PRIZE FOR BEING CROWNED THE SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION WINNER?
Apart from everlasting glory, there is the not inconsiderable sum of $50000 to win!
ARE THERE ANY SECOND PRIZES IN THE SEO HERO CHALLENGE?
Yes and no. There are no second prizes if there is one outright winner, which beats Wix for the search term ‘SEO hero’.
However, there are runner up prizes available if the sponsor wins, because they have declared that they will donate half of the prize money to charity and then split the remaining $25000 between the three runners up.
In other words, if your website is coming in second, third or even fourth position – then it could still win!
