You can win £1000 (that’s $1792, and €1472) by linking to this blog using the words “Seraphim Proudleduck”. (Please read on for details.)
In the wake of Nigritude Ultramarine, a new SEO competition has hit the Googlesphere. The phrase Seraphim Proudleduck will bring one search engine optimizer the contest prize £1000 (second prize £300, third prize £200, all paid via PayPal). As bonus prize for the one who will be on top in Google Images, a PageRank 7 site is handed out. The judge will be Google.com, with safe-search off, as seen from the UK, on January 1st, 2005, 1am GMT.
The only rules to participate: link to http://www.salmonbones.co.uk (the official contest page) throughout the whole contest – the anchor text can be anything you want – and send off an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your details, including a user name you choose and a PayPal account email (or other email, if you do not wish to be paid via PayPal).
So let the games begin. The term had zero result in the beginning, and now finds 13,200 pages already. For most of the participating pages, as always, the motto is “Best Viewed with Googlebot.” I will try to make an exception once more and participate with this blog homepage by reporting on the competition.
If you want to help out, link to http://blog.outer-court.com using link text “Seraphim Proudleduck” – there’s no need for you to follow any other rules as outlined above, just send an email to email@example.com (subject “Seraphim-Proudleduck”) to let me know. Every single domain will count as one entry from you*.
You can also use my Seraphim Proudleduck image in your blog (but to win the prize, please create a text-only link).
In case I win, you guessed it, I will donate the £1000 (or any other prize) right back to one of my readers by playing lottery. My chances are fairly good if you help out, as the last Nigritude Ultramarine competition prooved: I came in a close second. This time, let’s see if we can make it a first place.

FoafSpace (a friend-of-a-friend search engine) says it knows over a million people. I’m not one of them, neither are other people I tried. [Thanks Philipp H.]
