Guest Blogging Contest Winners Announced

Sharing is caring!

Finally the day is here when 3 faces are going to smile and other are going to be little disappointed, but this is not about wining or losing, because this platform gave you huge exposure, and boosted confidence in you.

Participating in any contest need courage and you know very well that all people don't have that much courage.

So first of all many congrats to all the participants to make this contest a great contest.

You all deserve huge round of applause. 🙂

Idea to organize this contest was running in my mind from last 6-7 months and I was very much excited to host it on my blog.

I started this guest blogging contest with total prize $650 but soon more cash was added and this became contest having $775 as prizes.

Many many thanks to all the sponsors who believed in me and contributed in this contest to make it more successful.

How this went?

This contest was running like crazy and every forum, groups I was checking, I was finding people promoting their articles.

I got huge exposure and great traffic on my blog those days and added many awesome readers.

Statistics

I got around 40+ awesome articles.

1500+ superb comments.

I added 500+ subscribers in my list during this contest.

I got 300+ Facebook likes on my Page.

200+ twitter followers

and huge exposure which I cannot express in figures. 🙂

What went wrong?

This was first big guest blogging contest on my blog, so I was not aware what to do and what not.

Even some good blogger friends didn't suggested anything to make to more authentic. 🙁

The points to win this contest were as following.

  1. 1 Like – 2 points.
  2. 1 Tweet – 5 points.
  3. 1 Stumbleupon – 5 points.
  4. 1 Google Plus – 10 Points.
  5. 1 Comment – 20 Points.

I gave these points to make it easy for participants to get such social shares and they will get their article more open for readers.

Contest was running awesome in first 20 days and all people were using only genuine methods to get likes, comments, shares on their posts.

But as I caught with Cervical Pain, so I was on bed rest for 3-4 days and doctors suggested to not do any sitting work. Even I was not able to sit otherwise I might have tracked each and every thing in this contest.

I failed to note down all the latest stats and see what is going on.

People used wrong methods to get more like, shares on their articles (which I could see very clearly).

I was very much sad and disappointed after seeing such movement from these bloggers.

I consulted with good blogger to cope up with this situation and many people suggested many things.

So I decided to put capping on all social shares.

In this contest I have given points for 1000 likes, tweets, shares, StumbleUpon only.

Because this was the only solution I found.

Bad for me as well as for you too. 🙁

Here are the winners

Good news is, final three winners are the participants who really deserved this place and efforts made by them were clearly seen to me.

Even they took some wrong steps, and they are very well aware about the thing what I am talking about.

Congrats to these 3 great bloggers.

First Prize – Zion Amal (Bullet-Proof Methods to WIN Any Guest Blogging Contest)

Second Prize – Thejas (7 Out-of-the-Box Ways To Get Thousands of Twitter Followers)

Third Prize – Avi Jit (Here’s Why a Blogger Shouldn’t Help Everyone)

They scored 19,592, 16,854, and 16,286 points respectively.

It's time to celebrate now. 🙂

Special Note:

Don't get disappointed if you are not in the list of winners.

I am going to organize another contest in July-August and this time the points will be based on genuine comments only.

    Thanks Kulwant bro for hosting an exciting contest. 🙂

  20. This is not the first time I’ve seen blogging contests based on social share/like. I must agreed with what you said. I was once entered a blogging contest, and feel very dissappointed. He even have no idea how to track down whether any contestant using dirty trick to win the contest. Can you believe that someone can get almost 1 thousand like only after publishing an article about 1 hour? That must be a joke. Then, whenever I see organizer uses social media as a measure, I won’t enter it. Not because I’ve no confidence to win, but because I don’t want to waste my time.

    • Yeah, Rudd. It was very disappointing for me. Some shit tools have made things easy but difficult in other side also.

      In next contest I will consider quality comments only. 🙂

  21. Congrats to three of you Zion Amal, Thejas and Avi Jit. All the very best for other contestants as you are having one more chance.

    Thanks Kulwant for such a nice competition, and see that next competition would not have any flaws.
