It doesn't really matter much. It will be in 1000 blogs in a matter of minutes, anyway.

EDIT: Logically, I would say you should announce it in the same place you announced the contest, itself.

The two stickies could hang out together for a while.

I think, in the spirit of openness, we should post them in the public forum. But I've really not decided yet...

I vote private, only to make it a tiny bit slower for the competition to get the keywords if they havn't registered and don't look at the blogs!!

As for a thread, I think there should be a new official thread made so it's not hidden on page @27, and of course what ever thread it's in'll get massivly HUGE over the next four months!!!!! This way it'll be easy to find the keyword.

OK, cancel my vote. It's been casted for purely selfish reasons as in me wanting to be one of the first to have the keywords on my blog

It will be in every blog in a matter of hours. It might as well be public.

I would do it in the public forums, when it's anounced in the private forums it will be out in a second anyway.

If you do it in private, people will blog about it and mistype the keywords

As has been said - will be public soon enough anyway! Announce it on the homepage - maybe in the title tags, H1 tags.....

Bah!! You wern't supposed to tell him THAT!!!! I thought of that!!! You give some one a keyword set that's one character wrong, like I instead of l!!! Three months later they find out why it LOOKS like there winning and don't have a ton of competition, and of course they would be realy POd!!!!

This is an interesting contest. As well I like the forum you have here, theres some great content I have read through. Maybe I have already read them, but if someone can direct me to some of the more useful information on SEO, I have always had trouble getting high pageranks.

I think you should post the keywords in a public thread, maybe post all the contest info, including total prizes, keywords, and any restrictions/rules, then lock the thread so that it doesnt get huge. It would keep all the contest info together and easy to find.

Public. It started out public, and should end up there.
