It’s The Hochstadt.com Party Contest!

It's The Hochstadt.com Party Contest!

Yesterday shall have been the day for my blog to break Alexa’s Top 50,000 rank, if… yeah, if Alexa wouldn’t have changed its ranking algorithm! LOL

While I was eagerly checking and waiting for my blog to break Alexa’s 50,000 mark (so I can celebrate this with you,) I found out Alexa just changed its Ranking algorithm (04/16/2008)…

http://www.alexa.com/site/company/announcement

My blog’s Alexa Rank now dropped from 51,059 down to 174,666!

That means, NO ranking report, NO “showing off” of Alexa’s formerly sky-rocking hochstadt.com ranking graph, NO big numbers—nada of these—and therefore NO “Alexa Top 50,000 In 107 Days” title – BUT…

We will simply change the tag and party anyway! :-D

(Business Lesson: Never ever be dependent on any 3rd party resource!)

You probably remember the astonishing party I held when my blog broke Alexa’s old 100,000 mark? OK, as a reminder…

http://www.hochstadt.com/alexa-top-100000-in-66-days

Now, because of the Alexa thing, now it is…

The Hochstadt.com Party Contest!

I invited a select few Top Entrecarders and Internet Entrepreneurs to join our one-of-a-kind Hochstadt.com Party Contest and celebrate together that it is indeed possible to catapult from no man’s land to popularity in 107 days!

Without further ado, let’s get to the “Party Contest Meat”—or in other words, what YOU can WIN at this Hochstadt.com Party Contest!

NOTE: This is none of those Internet Marketing niche contests… The Hochstadt.com Party Contest features prizes from a broad range of industries and categories. Meaning, there is something for EVERYONE:

Men’s Interest, Women’s Interest, Sports, Internet Marketing, Make Money Online, Technology, Hobbies, Marketing, Self Improvement, Computers and Internet, Art, Environment, Finance and Investing, Web Development, News and Media, Entertainment, Graphic Design, Religion and Spirituality, Blogging Resources, Parenting and Family, Technology, Mixed Bag, Home and Garden, Health and Medicine, Trends, Personal Diary, and Writing and Literature!

Now, take a look at these amazing and unbelievable contributions… the Who’s Who of Entrecard and other friends of mine:

Entrecard Credits

Phew! Wanna count? OK, I made it easy for you…

These are contributions for 200+ winners (!) with a monetary value of more than $7,000+ (!!) and exactly 66,666ec (“ec” = Entrecard Credits)!!! This is by far the BIGGEST Party Contest in Entrecard’s History!

What? How you can win? I’m glad you asked… ;-)

Here is how to enter the party contest and belong to the lucky winners…

  1. Subscribe to the Hochstadt.com Blog Announcement List (see the sign-up field in the top right hand corner of this page, right below my image? Yup, there it is.) Not only does it bring you 2 points but I may send you a cool gift when you do :-) – 2 Points
  2. Post a comment to this blog post – 1 Point (one point per person)
  3. Stumble and digg about this contest and fav me on Technorati – 1 Point respectively
  4. Use the below party contest image(s) on your site (linking to this party contest) – 2 Points
  5. Write about this blog and this Hochstadt.com Party Contest on your blog, linking to both this blog and the Hochstadt.com Party Contest. Use your own wording, one that fits to your audience. (It shall be easy because the above prizes fit to ALL audiences!) – 10 Points
  6. Write about this blog and this contest on your blog, AND link to ALL contributors (just like you see my list above including all the prizes) – 30 Points
  7. *PSSST* When you write about this contest on your blog it may be a good idea you indicate which of the above prizes you would like to win most. Perhaps Santa is listening and your wish comes true, who knows… ;-)

Hint: Use the same e-mail address and Web site’s URL when performing the above contest actions. That way, I will be able to track your entries. ;-)

NOTE: I changed the point structure slightly because it turned out to be a bit unfairly weighted. Hopefully it is fair now so more people can win something. And I now give 2 points when using the party contest image below.

The more points you accumulate the higher your chances to win one of the BIG prizes worth up to $357 per single prize! And yes, all above sponsors are entitled to enter the contest, too! :-)

Wanna use the party contest image on your site? Here are three versions to choose from…

  5. Wow, that is a lot of prizes! You’ve been very busy. I’ve already done the write-up and will keep promoting it. Great job!

    I’m giving away some bonus prizes in conjunction to encourage people even further to enter and link to all. Like they really needed more incentive :). But they’ve got to let me know they used the link to all option by commenting on my blog.

    Hope that’s OK. If not, well then, just edit this comment.

    @ Pat, awesome video! And this to 30 video sites? Hmm… an excellent idea! Now, does this entitle Pat to receiving extra points? Hmmm…

    How about an extra poit for peeps that sign up for contributor feeds?

  48. Matt Keegan says:

  49. Angie Hurst says:

    I’ve subscribed, stumbled, and dugg… I want prizes now!!! :-)

  67. Catherine says:

    I don’t normally ever enter blog giveaway competitions because the prizes don’t attract me that much (well, ok, money and ECs and adverts aren’t that undesirable). But when I saw on Aerten’s blog that one of the prizes was one of her artworks, I thought I’d try and raise a few points (via subscription and stumbling and Technorati at least)…

  68. I’v subscribed, blogged, commented, linked to the image, linked to the Hochstadt blog and party page, linked to sponsors…so that’s maybe 45 points if I ain’t wrong!

  69. borzack says:

    Glad to be able to contribute. Great party! Stumbled and blogged:

  88. Hi,

    I just made a post about this contest. I think I made them all correctly except for fave you becoz according to Technorati, I already reached the max. of 200.

    By the way, just to inform you that there are 2 blogs with dead link; Jason of University Kid and Borzack of Making Myself Extra Money. No matter how many times I click them, they’re still dead.

    Another thing, I think “Jonathan” is not the username of the owner of Archon Digital coz when I checked his About Me page, I did not see any name on it. I suppose you overlook it coz the name after him is Jonathon. Not sure though.

    But you have really an amazing contest. It’s worth joining.

    Thanks.

    Great participation! I’m taking note because after 3 days of advertising a 25 dollar contest of my own for a quick story about folks favorite places I have zero participation. Ha Ha Ha… I’ll figure it out I have one idea that feels like a good one, but I have many days of content and converting to a cleaner html template.

    Best of luck,

    Josh

    Hi there what an awesome contest. I want to join too! I’ve faved, stumbled and subscribed ;)

  115. […] The first one is of course the huge contest Marcus is running, initially to celebrate him breaking the 50.000 Alexa ranking but after the recent changes Alexa is following through on in order to provide a more realistic ranking, his goal was set back a bit. He did not back down on his word though of running a kick-ass contest and I am happy to be one of the sponsors. If you want to read more about this contest, please check it out on The Hochstadt Party Contest! […]

  119. Charlotte says:

    What a diabolical scheme to get links and trackbacks. We’re not worthy. We’re Not Worthy. Oh, heck, yes we are.

    I’ll take Gary Evans Manifest a Miracle, since that’s how I got here.

  130. Charlotte says:

    I still think this rocks! My favs on digg, stumble and twitter are under whyzz whether or not the email address is the same. I use several. How about posts on several blogs? I have a coiupole more that I am certainly willing to use.

  131. Charlotte, sure, go ahead! When you post on more than one blog you’ll get more points.

    By the way, I took the time and edited your comments since you forgot (twice) to add the .com to the end of your domain name. Thought you wanna know…

    To everyone, some comments and trackbacks landed in the Akismet folder. So when your post doesn’t show up immediately, check back later. Rest assured I’ll take a look and pull your comment out from Akismet to the good folder.

    This is a lot of fun, folks! Let’s party! :-)
