    Article Contest ???
    Hello, I am the webmaster of a website that reviews running shoes.
    We have some google love, we post on forums and are beginning to exchange links with other websites.

    Now i would like to spend some money for the website, but with the idea of spending money for something that stays and increases the web presence of the website - so not PPC.

    What we were thinking is a contest, in the way "if you link to us on your blog you can win a 100$ gift card on one of our partner sites".

    Now my questions are... what is the best way to do that? My goal is to get 100 links and pay 100$ for them - so when the contest gets 100 participants, i randomly extract one winner.

    but maybe there are better ways, such as 1 point for a link and 2-3 points for an article that links to one of our articles. and how do i reach 100 webmasters (or more, given that not everybody might participate?)

    did you ever run a contest? what was the outcome? any tip really appreciated!

    Could be difficult because people with any kind of PageRank are earning in excess of that amount from people from guaranteed paid text links.

    Offering $100 might not have quite the incentive you hoped, especially as they only have a chance of even getting the $100, not a guarantee.

    It's an interesting thought though. Some people might go for it.

    So a site owner links to you, and has a 1 in 100 chance of winning $100?

    Not exactly worth it
