    Call me cheap but I've not budgeted an entry fee. I can see some expenses coming up over 3 months but I'm trying to keep it as low as possible. A low budget is probably going to handicap me - but who knows I might have a trick or two up my sleeve. Winning WordAI and Microsite Masters this week is really going to help :)

    Sure, I understand that. It was just an idea for a prize :)

    We will have a cash prize, however that cash prize will be contributed entirely by me and for this contest there will be no entry fee. My hope is that this contest will introduce a lot of new people to Apex Forum and I do not want this contest to appear as a money grab or an attempt to make a "sale" to outside SEOers who are hearing about Apex Forum and this contest for the first time.

    You will be required to register a new domain name for the contest (which will cost somewhere in the range of $3-12) but besides that there will be no entry fees to participate.

    These rules are not mentioned in the other thread: http://www.apexforum.com/threads/seo-contest-suggestions.253/page-2#post-2066

    Hope this is the beginning of something awesome, where actually doing stuff takes precedence over a lot of talk.
    Edit: Forgot to mention: Some amazing prizes up there. Awesome job, getting all of them lined up for this!​

    They are formatted a little differently, but those rules should all be included in this part of the thread:
    (Here were the originally posted rules for reference)
    If you think I missed one of them let me know and I'll make sure it gets added in!

    Thanks! That's my goal as well, and a lot of my hope with the vision of Apex Forum moving forward - where claims are backed up with case studies, and talk is backed up with real work.

    I couldn't find #1 (real world keyword with commercial intent) and made that post, but of course, #1 doesn't need to be part of rules. Just checked, all good. :)
