Thanks Colleen for the screen cap.

I like the article, just one statement I want to correct. I told him "about 100 bucks", not "hundreds of dollars" ... well well.

There is some heavy discussion on it on Cutts blog, I made a comment. I am a bit worried something bad is going to happen to my sites - either from Google (links) or Taggle ... maybe I should take down the links and resign from the contest now when I got some fame ...

Should I worry?

No worries, Jim. I think it's all good. Not like you are linking to lesbian sex position websites from your contest pages.

Yeah, hmm. And another SEO Pro told me that there is chance to get all my sites banned ...

Well, I will see what I do.

Jim, I really don't see anything that you are doing that is ban-worthy. There are a lot of SEO's out there and most never see bans. You have to do some pretty amatuer stuff (hidden text, etc) or some pretty radical stuff (hundreds of thousands of paid links) to get banned.

Congrats, nice publicity. Looks like it was in the print edition too, page B1? That's bigtime.
