Germany’s biggest computer magazine publisher C’t, who publishes the Heise site (Germany’s most popular IT news), is starting a search engine optimization contest for the search query Hommingberger Gepardenforelle
. “Hommingberger Gepardenforelle” sounds like a dish of a city (“Gepard” and “Forelle” are animals), but is a nonsense term to not compete with existing result pages, Heise says
. Heise will be publishing the winners who will rank top on May 15, 2005, and December 15, respectively. The search engines that will be used to judge positions are Google.de
, Yahoo.de, MSN.de and Seekport.de.
Heise made available an official contest homepage. Heise also started a Hommingberger Gepardenforelle competition page which runs outside the real competition. This page is one of the 10.100 results which are listed for the competition phrase at this moment. Google AdSense ads are listed as well.
In the meantime, C’t issue 9/2005 (available on Monday, April 18 in Germany) will contain in-depth coverage of SEO, Heise announced.

I entered a German “Hommingberger Gepardenforelle” page into the competition.
