SommerSEO Contest

The SEO contest SummerSEO started in the week of 3 May. All interested persons could register to participate.

Ultimately, the competition will not only be about who has the best keyword density, but also who has mastered the top tools to bring a page up in the organic search engine rankings in the short term.

According to our observations, press releases already seemed to be a very good means of getting listed high up in the competition.
