Starting a contest to get links

When V7n announced their now famous SEO contest, they required a link back (this requirement was later removed). The contest generated good publicity and increased forum activity. They probably got a few links as well.

This new contest is being done on a smaller scale, and that's exactly why I mention it. It shows that even smaller sites can use contests to generate links. In this case, the blogparty.net owners will select one person who blogs about their site and giv the lucky webmaster 250.00. It looks to me that they'll get more than 250.00 worth of publicity (and links) out of the deal as bloggers like myself link to blogparty.net to earn our shot at winning the 250.

Yes, he does own V7n. I'm not sure about Bluefind. I heard they sold it, but there's still some connection. I'm not really sure what it is.
