SEO Contest Tracking

In this thread we want to track the contestants progress. A few things we want to take note of:
  • URL of Page
  • Number of Inbound Links at Start
  • Number of Inbound Links at Finish
  • Age of Domain
  • Total Page IBL vs LinkDomain
  • Primary SEO Tactic
  • Source of Linkage
  • Keyword Density
  • Number of Outbound Links on Page
  • Percenatge of OBL as Total of Links on Page
  • Heading Tags (Yes or No)
  • Bold (Yes or No)
  • Italics (Yes or No)
  • Percentage of IBL Using Keywords as Anchor Text
  • Keywords in Page Title (Yes or No)
  • Total Word Count on Page


If there are any other factors worth monitoring (and I'm not saying all of these are worth monitoring) speak up now.

Another thing I'm interested in is the percentage of text which is linked. Not aware of a tool out there that checks this.

For example, if we took a page that had just this on it:

Quote:
Hi I'm Bob and I'll be going to South America
It would have be 20% linked. (10 words, 2 linked) Just one of those things I've been curious about.

That would be covered under "Source of Linkage".

Welcome to v7n, by the way.

A lot of these things I haven't thought about (how they may impact rankings). With 4 months time in the contest, there's plenty of time to try stuff out!

I think we could detail more "Source of Linkage", detailing "quality" links, PR, text around link (remember Cutts saying Google might discover sponsored links), IP, amount of links in linking page, domain of linking page (some say too much about .edu and .gov), amount of links to us in linking page...

I think that this SEO contest can be very interesting.

The learning part is definitely going to be great. The search engines will be watching as well.

We'll see if someone will join with his .edu University page, maybe President Bush will use WhiteHouse.gov to try seo as well. Who knows

Change? from where we look at it down in Holland both Reps and Dems are exactly the same corrupted dirty pile of sh1t with about exactly the same agenda.

Things didn't change bro, apart from a name.

Some clever stuff going on - look at the google results for V-E ... looks like someone has made an Adwords play for it ...
