    It looks like Club Penguin has announced it is shutting down on March 29, 2017. RIP to all the walkthroughs that were made in the past year!

    "this will be for Website Users"

    Traffic? Or conversions?

    Signup.
    I will provide a website with unique URL to every member who want to participate in this competition. We need registration on our website.
    First Prize: 1000 Registration
    Second Prize: 800 Registration
    Third Prize: 650 Registration.
    Registration between 300-650 also will get a prize for sure.
    We will check that every registration done from unique IP or Machine ID. If any registration done from same IP or machine then we will reject that Signup and that will not count in numbers of Signup.

    That is a good idea for your website, but it will a promo for your website, not an SEO contest.

    The very reason why almost all SEO contests do it the way we've seen is because it is easy for anyone to verify the results in Google. There is almost no manipulation.

    You can always run a promo for your website - many companies do that. You may want to go through an affiliate network or a third party to make sure tracking and conversions are verified. Otherwise, all someone will have is your word.

    As to whether you can run it here, only @cardine can answer it I guess.

    That's why i wrote that we will provide you a Unique Url so you and we both can track everything. I am also waiting for a response from @cardine. Hope he will answer soon.

    It tracks visits to the registration page, not conversions. Unless you have tracking pixels on conversion page too.

    Plus, it is hosted by you. No offense, but nobody knows who you are or how trustworthy your company is.

    I would only allow something like that if it was to a neutral site that benefited nobody here.

    Or if it was to a site that exclusively benefited me :)

    But this sounds more like an marketing promotion instead of an unbiased contest. In that case I don't think that would be in the spirit of this section of the thread.
