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)…
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…
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!
